My wife and I just spent the weekend at the Stewart Inn to celebrate our 28th Anniversary. We stayed in room #3 the Sheldon Room. The accommodations were excellent and the decor in the entire Inn was very classy. Randy, the inn keeper, is very welcoming and provided many great eating recommendations. We enjoyed getting to know him during the wine reception at 5 each evening. Downtown Wausau has much more to offer than we were expecting. We enjoyed eating at the Back When Cafe, the Mint Cafe, and Caio restaurants - all excellent choices. There's a hidden gem in the Wausau Museum of Contemporary Art. And Randy is an excellent choice and provided very unique and tasty breakfasts which left us quite satisfied. I would highly recommend this place for very rewarding and relaxing getaway.

We're currently at the Stewart Inn on our 4th stay over the last 18 months. We happened upon it while searching for a B&B for a 1-night stay in central Wisconsin. The warmness and excellent service we received from Randy and Sara began the moment we walked in the door that first time. All 4 visits have been consistently top-notch. These hosts go out their way to ensure your stay is superb and memorable. Cheese and wine are served daily in the early evenings. They offer a vast pillow menu to ensure a great night's sleep for everyone. They have a music system in every guest room. Each room has a private bath complete with a steam shower. The furnishings are excellent. You're sure to sleep well here. They don't just want you time at the inn to be great. Randy will provide a plethora of dining options in town based on your preferences, and give other suggestions of places you should see while in the area. The breakfast will blow you away. You'll receive a multi-course gourmet meal complete with explanations of what you're about to enjoy. The menu is thoughtfully and carefully chosen and made with care. The ingredients for their food are sourced locally as much as possible to support other local suppliers and businesses. Don't worry if you have dietary restrictions, they will accommodate you. All-in-all, you won't find a better B&B experience anywhere.

From the quality of the pillows, to the hospitality of the innkeeper, I couldn’t expect a better stay anywhere else in Wausau. It’s the details: the lighting, the subtle simplicity, wasn’t overly decorated with trinkets, or dominated by floral wallpapers and ridiculous knickknacks like some B&B’s. Cozy, elegant, carefully honoring the history of the home without feeling like a stuffy museum. Having worked in fine, high end restaurants I appreciated that the glassware had no water spots, the silver was polished, and the coffee was local, fresh brew. Service was prompt, friendly, and if you’re lucky you’ll have the pleasure of meeting Buster, their ridiculously adorable puppy. Our beautiful room had an Apple TV, tablet, and other modern amenities, the WiFi was excellent, and our host even asked us what type of pillow we preferred. Seriously, you will not be disappointed here. As a General Manager of a resort myself, I was blown away.

This was perhaps our best-ever experience at a B&B. The property is stunning and Randy was accommodating and great to visit with. The main floor decor and design are so beautiful, and we enjoyed relaxing on the porch in the afternoon. Our room was immaculate with all the extras, and breakfast was delicious as well. We will definitely make a return visit!!

It was a last minute decision to stay here and we were not disappointed. We reserved one room and changed our mind after seeing another room that was available, and it wasn't a problem with Randy. It was meticulously clean and so very beautiful! We didn't want to leave after one night and can't wait to go back again. We walked to town and had dinner and it was quaint and the shopping was fun. Morning breakfast was fun with the other guests, even with Covid and safe distancing. Randy made a delicious 3 course meal and was very entertaining. If there was anything we needed, all you had to do was ask. We left purchasing a wonderful robe and some coasters for souvenirs, and took many pictures to have as memories till our next visit back.

Room Tip: No room was bad at this Inn, at least 2 of the rooms were pretty large that we saw.
