we had a fantastic stay with Carol and Gordie, room was great breakfast was fantastic, hospitality was fantastic. I cant wait for when we can visit again.
We have stayed at two other B&B's in the area and these guys put all to shame A+++++

We had to attend a wedding in Appleton and were very pleased with the quaint accommodations. Carole and Gordie greeted us and made us feel "at home". They even upgraded our room which was great. We did not stay for breakfast the following morning due to a previous engagement. The room was very clean and we enjoyed all the antique decorations. The only regret we had is that we did not have time to enjoy the beautiful gardens or visit longer with our hosts. We would definitely stay there again to enjoy the friendly atmosphere.

We stayed at the Quilt-n-Be while attending a wedding in Appleton. We reserved the cheapest room, which turned out to be located in the back corner of the first floor, through the kitchen. It had its own back door however, so we were able to come and go without even going through the house, which was convenient. The room was very large for the price, and the bathroom was sufficient. The bed was very comfortable. The owners were friendly and breakfast was good. We didn't learn much about the history of the house or any other history of the area. The house was a 7 or 8 minute (I'm guessing) walk from the main street through Appleton. The heavily patterned, laced, and quilted house decorations weren't quite to our taste (we're young, if that's an excuse), but there was an interesting collection of glass (crystal?) pitchers on display in the living room. Overall, the B&B was sufficient and suited our needs, but didn't blow us away. Breakfast was very good, but we felt awkward asking for seconds.

For 2 nights we had no hot water to shower! We asked Carol for help to get hot water. No assistance was given to us. Her answer was, "It must be all gone." No adjustment was made to our bill. We also personally like locks on our room when staying at B & B's. No locks available on the room! We have really liked staying at other B & B's each year on our anniversary staycations. Unfortunately, the Appleton Inn has left us sadly disappointed. We do not recommend the English Cottage Room or this inn. We wished that we could have had a picture of the bathroom before reserving. Nothing was displayed on the internet. Now we know why! We have had better bathrooms at campgrounds. Carol was not hospitable to say the least when we expressed our concerns! We felt like we were walking on eggs after we mentioned the no hot water problem(no pun intended for this bed & breakfast!) Hope this review helps save you from the chill of a cold shower!

My husband and I stayed for our 10 year anniversary, and we had such a wonderful time. We got to stay in the lovely "romance and candles" room that had a fabulous hot tub. The owners are incredibly artistic and friendly. This was our first experience with a B&B, and we would definitely recommend it to others. I'm sure we'll be going there again.

If you need a place for a quilting getaway and want to stay somewhere that has all the conveniences of your own home, then this is the place! Beautifully decorated, comfortable beds, a full kitchen, and plenty of space to spread out your projects, a quilter couldn't ask for more! There is a large room designated just for sewing...tables for your machine, comfortable chairs, a design wall to see your quilt tops come to fruition, and a designated place to iron. And there are even several quilting books and quilts lying around to use as sources for ideas and inspiration. Carole's creativity was evident in every room in the house. You won't be disappointed!
