This is an inspiring family. They live as they believe. ach of them, Lisa, John, and son Liam are multi-talented and quite exceptional. The farm is set in a beautiful, bucolic area of the state. It was a wonderful experience.

Lisa and John have created a very special place in beautiful, historical Green County. Inn Serendipity combines the charm of a real farm house with the warm hospitality of a true B&B. As a guest, I felt like I was welcomed into their home while also having all the privacy and quiet time alone that I wished for. The hosts... More

From the moment we arrived, Lisa, John, and son Liam made us feel right at home with a tour of this bucolic farm/B&B. Top-shelf personal attention to our needs and questions put us at ease. They were very knowledgeable about the area incl. highlights of the Stagecoach Trail, nearby Galena, Monroe eateries, Green County, etc. John and Lisa truly walk-their-talk... More

We had discovered Inn Serendipity in the National green Pages quite some time ago, and we finally had the opportunity to visit for two nights earlier this month. Our two nights were at the end of a short road trip "off the beaten path." Inn Serendipity was exactly that. The farm house was a gem -- and the surrounding farm... More

We really enjoyed our overnight stay at Inn Serendipity. The hosts were absolutely fantastic: personable, full of knowledge, warm, and friendly. We had an easygoing tour of their farm, good discussions, and were even invited to a local potluck supper- it was a lovely evening. The morning was quite relaxing, and complete with an amazing breakfast full of local fare.... More

We enjoyed two nights at Inn Serendipity. The breakfasts were delicious, and John and Lisa were very accommodating to my dairy-free diet. It was a pleasure to see their large kitchen garden, renovated straw-bale green house and even enjoy a few wood fired pizzas in the evening. I would recommend a visit, especially if you live in the city, this... More

Lisa, John and Liam were wonderful. I read their book ECOpreneuring: Putting Purpose and the Planet before Profits and have been wanting to make a few changes to my career. Not only did they share their own insights regarding their own journey, but gave me some names to network/contact to gain more insight for my specific career change. The food... More

This is a wonderful haven in the middle of Cheese Country. I had a fantastic time--my life was changed, I recharged, and I learned a ton. I will never look at the world the same way again. The enterprise that Lisa and John have created is phenomenal and full of heart. I needed a break from consumerism and to reconnect... More

I can’t imagine a better place for city folk to start learning about living off the land. Inn Serendipity is a five-acre B&B on a homestead that includes an organic garden and a straw bale greenhouse. The unique and most valuable part of the stay is hanging with proprietors John Ivanko and Lisa Kivirist, who happily share their insights on... More
