“Uniquely Decorated B & B with Friendly Hosts”
Reviewed January 3, 2011

We stayed at this B & B while we attended a friend's wedding in Appleton. Carol and Gordie were gracious hosts who seemed to really care about the well being of their guests. We received a free upgrade to a well decorated room with a very tasty breakfast. The common spaces were inviting and well furnished. Overall a most enjoyable experience.

I recently got married & had family in town....I was searching for a "NICE" local place for the honeymoon Night and stopped in to see Gordon. The "candles & romance" room was booked :( .He offered me a different room, which i booked. Now comes the real story. The day of the wedding I came in Frantically wanting to prep the room for that night .... flame less candles and rose peddles Etc..... VERY SHORT on time!! Gordon & Carole stepped in and told me they would handle EVERYTHING. "Just tell us what you want & we'll do it". I left it to them and got back home in time to greet my groomsmen and get ready for the BIG DAY. That night everything WAS perfect I couldn't have asked for anything more! they really went out of there way to be the best host's.. Great Job Gordon & Carole!!!

Thank you so much Gordie and Carole.. We just loved our stay at your Inn. The candles and romance room, fit our wedding theme to a tee and being able to celebrate our anniversary in that room, was so nice. Loved the room and the whirlpool! Thank you so much for the wonderful breakfast and the wonderful conversation we had before we left. Kudos on the creativity and designs of the rooms.. Just wonderful!! We will be back for sure..

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!

  • Liked — the idea to be close to the Fox River Mall
  • Disliked — No hot water, no door locks, poor hospitality
