We've been at Walking Iron many times and it only gets better. Karissa and Dave are wonderful and are very responsive to your needs. They have those terrific breakfasts with fresh fruit, great coffee & that French toast is out of this world. What more could you ask for!!

The Walking Iron B&B far exceeded our expectations. When we drove up to this lovely historic Inn, I felt quiet and like we were stepping back in time. Memories of a childhood at my grandparents' home in the country flooded my mind. Karissa encouraged us to look around, so we had a chance to see the beautiful antiques and many... More

We've stayed at Walking Iron the past 3 summers and consider it the best in Wisconsin. David and Karissa are very good personable hosts. The Old Feed Mill is the only nearby restaurant but is excellent also.

This Italianette 1860s home is beautifully and authentically restored and maintained. It is located on the Black Earth Creek. Two blocks away is a nice walking path along the creek and a good restaurant, The Old Feed Mill. Parking is easy on the street just in front of the BNB. Breakfast is average. Our room was great, Alsie's Nook. A... More

This is my second time time staying at the place about 15 miles from American Players Theater & Taliesen in Spring Green. This time we stayed in large room on the second floor called Lenora's Garden View Room. After the play, we hung out on the expansive front porch of this place to relax before heading upstair for bed.

My four-day business trip, working with a client in Prairie du Sac, felt more like a mini-vacation. The home is a work of art, with the 'Italianate' theme throughout. My room was so comfortable, the bed a dream, and the 'commute' to work was a lovely 20-minute country drive. On my day off, the historic district of Mazomanie was an... More

I'm usually not a big fan of the B & B experience, at least in the states. The Walking Iron was like staying in a museum. The history of it is well documented and presented. Be sure to check out their website. The bathrooms are refreshingly modern, even had a whirlpool tub with dual shower heads. The whole place was... More

This was our first time staying at a Bed and Breakfast. The Walking Iron exceeded our expectations. The home was beautiful! We stayed in the Alsie's Retreat room.

We stayed for two nights which felt like a nice, long vacation. Our room was big, cozy and has a great bathroom. The owners did a great job fixing the place up and the historical photos are a great touch. Great location, pretty surroundings and great hosts.
