The Stewart Inn is a beautiful place to stay in Wausau. It’s in a perfect location, walkable to downtown. The proprietor (Randy) is friendly, welcoming, and an excellent source of information. The breakfasts are delicious. One day we had to leave early for a meeting, and Randy made us breakfast before the normal time. (Note: don’t schedule anything before 10 am to fully enjoy the tasty breakfasts!) The wine reception is a great time to meet new people, with a wide range of topics for discussion. We definitely recommend staying here and plan to return.

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.

The Stewart Inn is such a gorgeous home and something you'd picture straight out of a Hallmark Christmas movie! The phenomenal hosts Randy and Sara always ensure cleanliness and are easy to reach to ensure all your needs and comfort level is met. The location is absolutely perfect, just a few minutes away from Granite Peak Ski Resort as well as the beautiful downtown Wausau with many incredible restaurants just a walk away. Breakfast is absolutely phenomenal, three to four courses so come hungry! They also offer a wine reception at 5pm. They have a very friendly dog Buster, in which you'll sometimes encounter before breakfast time. This is a perfect place to stay for a couple's getaway, but also with a group of friends or a solo business trip. I would recommend the Stewart Inn to everyone, as I have stayed three times already and definitely plan on returning!

Here is why my wife and I loved this place:
1) Most importantly, the host understood the sociological idiosyncrasies of St Louis class distinctions...a rare feat.
2) The interior was an impressive example of arts and crafts furniture and design.
3) The location was VERY convenient to downtown shopping and dining. You can easily walk to dinner or interesting stores near or on the square.
4) The host was loquacious AND interesting...a rare combination.
5) The cleaning products smelled clean and pure...not Janitor in a Drum-like.
6) The breakfasts were richer and sweeter than we may have chosen but they were delicious.
7) The porch on the east side of the house offered serenity and comfort.

As many others have said, we loved this place.

Last night was my second stay at the Stewart Inn. My first stay was with 4 girlfriends to celebrate a birthday. We had such a great time and loved the stay so much that I came home and told my husband that I’d love to go with him sometime. He surprised me with a staycation night away (we live in Wausau) this weekend and once again I loved our stay. Randy is a passionate and welcoming host who will strive to make sure you’re comfortable and happy during your stay. The rooms are beautiful - VERY comfortable mattresses, a 15 item pillow menu, a large bathroom with a steam shower in every room, an Alexa device, Sonos sound system, and more. The wine reception is a fun time to chat with Randy about the area and as fellow foodies we loved sharing our favorite restaurants with each other. Breakfast was exquisite - maple yogurt with grain free granola, blueberries in cream (YUMMY!), asparagus quiche with a homemade crust and sausage. Even fresh pressed pineapple juice! Delicious! I’m already looking forward to returning again and hopefully showing our friends this gem in our town!

We have stayed at B&Bs across North America and Stewart Inn is our favorite. Randy the Innkeeper is a big reason why we continue to come back. He is friendly, engaging and his sole purpose is to make your stay awesome. He is also a wonderful resource for suggesting things to do and places to eat. He makes a point of dining at all the best restaurants in the area so he can recommend specific entrees and appetizers based on what you are looking for.

The inn itself is so clean and comfortable. They have 5 guest rooms and every one has an in-room private bath. The location allows you to park your car and walk to downtown, all the best restaurants, museums and even a River Walk. All these places of interest are within 3 tenths of a mile. We have stayed in the smallest to the largest room and all of them are great.

One of our favorite things is a 5:00 social hour that Randy hosts. He serves a glass of wine and you have a chance to visit with the other guests. Every time we stay at Stewart Inn, we meet interesting people and often exchange numbers so that we can stay in touch. We have even met up with our new found friends back at the Inn months later. When we leave, we start planning our return visit.

Another fabulous visit at The Stewart Inn! It was my birthday celebration and my girlfriend’s first time skiing in decades and the highlights of the trip for both of us were our luxurious accommodations, Randy’s decadent and delicious breakfasts and his great dinner recommendations and warmth and good cheer. The Inn is stunning and we pampered ourselves including using the antique bathtub and steam shower. The location is great too - 10 min drive from Granite Peak and walking distance to several of Wausau’s best restaurants (snd it has several very good ones). We are so excited to return in a little more than a week!

My wife and I have stayed in a lot of inns and fine hotels and B&Bs around the world. The Stewart Inn in Wausau has to be one of our very best experiences. For one thing, the place is jaw-droppingly beautiful. If you like great architecture, here it is folks. And the fact that so much of the interior is original makes this a very special mansion of that era. We love when the owner greets us upon arrival, and that was the case here. Randy was a gracious host, answered all our questions about the area, told us fascinating things about the house, and showed us how everything worked in the room. Our guest room was extremely comfortable, quiet, and we slept like logs. The breakfast he served us the next morning was truly gourmet: three courses, each yummy and creatively done. The first-floor space that guests have full access to made for great browsing around after breakfast. I liked the library well stocked with books of interest. This was our first trip to the Stewart Inn, but we will be back whenever we can!

This is a beautiful B&B located in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance of the business district near several restaurants and the Grand Theatre. Randy was an exceptional host who clearly understands patron desires for comfort, privacy and unparalleled service as well as amenities. The breakfast was outstanding as was the decor and various appointments made throughout the residence. The king suite with gas fireplace and steam shower was marvelous and relaxing after a day of skiing in the area. We will return!

We LOVED the Stewart Inn and truly hope to get back again soon. It is a beautiful early 1900’s home with 5 bedrooms, each with a private bathroom with a steam shower. The beds are extremely comfortable as is the entire home. It has warm charm and comfort. The owner/host Randy is truly amazing. Randy not only cooks up the best 3 course breakfast each day, he is friendly, fun to converse with and gives you loads of great ideas for things to do in the area. My husband and I have stayed in many B&B’s but this one is definitely our favorite now! We highly recommend the Stewart Inn and will come back as often as life allows.
