“Our weekend in Appleton”
Reviewed April 16, 2012

My husband and I went out to Appleton last week to see our son, who is a sophomore at Lawrence. It was our first trip out in 18 months, and our first time to stay in town. We picked Franklin Inn because it was in walking distance to the college and to downtown, and the price was great! We saw a room on the Franklin Inn web site that was in our price range and was so nice and sunny - and it was perfect. The inn is really well represented on the web site; what you see is what you get. Judy Halma made us feel so very welcome and comfortable in her home, which is decorated with an eye for Victorian detail, and a sense of fun. She made sure we had everything we needed for a perfect weekend.

Room Tip: you can look on the excellent web site and pick the room that is right for you.

My 17 year old daughter and I were visiting the charming campus of Lawrence College in Appleton, Wisconsin. We were told by the college when I asked what was a lovely place to take my daughter, to head to the Franklin Street Inn. They were right from the moment we saw this delightful and stately home from the street. Big white columns on the front porch beckon inside this historic home. Endless care given to detail in each room all with their own flavor. We stayed in the Lawrence room designed to honor prospective and attending Lawrence students. It had wi-fi and television and all the modern comforts but without taking from the quaint and rustic setting. Don't leave without peaking at the attic floor where their is a king and queen suite that one would never expect with sunken bath and royal art. Our breakfast was scrumpious - a flower-shaped cinnamon muffin that still makes our mouths water in memory. But the most inviting feature of the Inn for us was its owner, Judy Halma, who was immediately welcoming, replete with historical and current facts we wanted about the town, and unendingly generous with making our stay perfect. If we return to Appleton, we would only stay at Judy's Franklin Street Inn and we recommend you do the same.

Room Tip: If you are student, try the rooms we had - the Lawrence Room. If business or just in need of respit...

We are a married couple whose birthdays are one day apart. First he surprises me and then I surprise him. I surprised him this year with his first B&B experience and we had a great time! Every detail made him feel special. The room was gorgeous and the bed comfortable along with the comfortable bathrobes. The lovely bathroom with a Japanese tub was a nice meditation spot. The breakfast was uniquely delicious and a surprise birthday gift presentation that absolutely topped off our stay.

Room Tip: The Lawrence room has nice windows and has the private bathroom with the Japanese tub, both rooms of...

We absolutely love the quaint decor and laid back atmosphere of this lovely little retreat. The rooms have all sorts of perfect little amenities that you will never find in a hotel, from champagne glasses to bath robes the rooms are fully stocked for a romantic getaway. The best part is it is all at a price that is comparable to a hotel. Breakfast is delivered to your room at your specified time (our meal included two types of homemade bread, an amazing egg and sausage dish, and two fruit dishes that would put your grandmothers fruit salad to shame). We can hardly wait to visit again.

The second we walked into the room we were in another realm. It was an absolutely magical experience, themed very romantically. The layout made for a fantasyland experience. The only thing better than eating in the overhang room was the food itself. I can't think of a better way to have spent our anniversary.

Room Tip: Go for the gold and get their attic suite. It's worth every penny.

It was a great stay, warm cozy nice robes, a large room away from everyone else. We live in the area but were able to feel like we were away! Beware of the bed in the Suite, it is so comfortable you will feel trapped!
