We decided on the spur of the moment to get away for a night, and Hamilton House was recommended to us. The pictures don't even begin to do it justice. We stayed in the Degas room. If you love history, this place is dripping in it. This house is beyond spectacular. We slept great, the owner was attentive and friendly. The breakfast was over the top wonderful. Truly, we can't wait to go back. Best B&B we've stayed at so far. I can't say enough good things about this place. The attention to detail was much appreciated. Loved the owner (Gloria I think is her name). Highly recommend.

Charming, exquisite, delightful and absolutely delicious meals are just some of the descriptors my husband and I use when talking about our perfect picture stay at this historic house. If you enjoy staying at B&B’s we highly encourage and recommend you check out Gloria’s place. Gloria was incredibly gracious and kind and her culinary expertise was most appreciated as we both really enjoyed her creative and amazingly prepared breakfasts. The 160 year old beautifully and impeccably decorated Second Empire style house is a gem. The rooms are incredibly comfortable and if you enjoy relaxing on an outdoor porch in a very peaceful and serene neighborhood, the Hamilton will not disappoint you. If you plan to stay in the area, we highly recommend staying at the Hamilton.

Like so many, my wife and I were ready for a respite from our COVID-19 exile. Two nights at the Hamilton House was just what the doctor ordered! Built in the 1860s and a stop on the Underground Railroad, the spacious, high-ceilinged HH exudes history and charm. Innkeeper and owner Gloria Buley greeted us warmly; I like to think I could see her smile through the surgical mask she was wearing. Our well-appointed room had a comfy king bed and a newly-constructed en suite. A wardrobe held two plush bathrobes; bottles of Perrier water, chocolates, and fresh flowers were on a table. Like our room, the common areas are immaculate and tastefully furnished with period antiques and Oriental rugs. Our two breakfasts were highlights! Gloria's a CIA culinary school grad and it shows. Fresh-squeezed OJ, omelettes, French toast, baked apples, sausages, Canadian bacon--whew, I don't eat nearly this well at home. Breakfast was also a chance to get to know Gloria. A recent transplant from Woodstock, NY, she purchased the Hamilton House weeks before the coronavirus shut down the world. I'd be down in the dumps, but Gloria seems indefatigable and is using the time to, among other things, install a garden walk that will pay homage to the nearby Birge Fountain, circa 1903. We're already looking forward to our next visit! A tip: One of Wisconsin's best supper clubs, the Duck Inn in Delavan, is a 15-minute drive from the HH.

An absolute treasure with an astoundingly rich history, the Hamilton House is a fabulous place to spend some time. Located within a short walk to campus, shops and restaurants, each room is a unique work of art with absolute attention to comfort, cleanliness, and detail. Gloria, the new innkeeper and chef extraordinaire, brings an unpretentious enthusiasm and vision that is refreshingly sincere and accommodating. The perfect getaway destination, accessible from both the Chicago-land and Milwaukee areas, we already have a return trip in the works.

The house was very clean and the breakfast was fresh and tasty! My body's weird aversion to eggs was accommodated very nicely given that breakfast is usually an egg-heavy affair in America. No complaints here. Would love to stay again.
