Honeybee Inn Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 1 Horicon B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 15, 2006

We have frequented many B&Bs throughout the United States and the Honeybee, by far, is an inn that everyone should experience. Upon entering the home, we were greeted by our names being displayed on a decorative chalkboard. This touch made us feel welcome from the moment we stepped into the foyer, and that feeling and attention to detail was present until the moment we left. We had a chance to view all of the rooms and each of them was tastefully appointed without being overly decorated. Sometimes the most basic amenities are the most memorable. For instance, the Flavia coffee machine offered coffee and tea at any time, while a small refrigerator was stocked with complementary soda and bottled water. In addition, the Honeybee offered a wide variety of books, movies and games to enjoy in this classic 1900s house. Finally, we looked forward to each morning's sumptuous breakfast that was served in the home's dining room. Gone was the large table, and in its place were two small tables that created the option of interaction with other guests or having a romantic breakfast next to the roaring fire. In the summer, you also have the choice of dining on the lovely veranda. To describe the food would take an additional review. Let's just say that the apple smothered French toast and other dishes rivaled any top quality restaurant. This B&B is not only a place to stay, it is a destination in itself.

There are so many good points about the Honey Bee, I'm not sure where I should start. First, the owners, Fred and Barbara are absolutely wonderful! The ten years of research into B&B's shows in every detail of the experience you will have at the Honey Bee. Breakfasts at the Inn are by far the best I have had at any B&B in my travels. Barb prepares and designs the meals with the help of her prep cook and all around go to gal, Julia. My favorite breakfast was Blueberry Brulee, a scrumptious layering of fresh blueberries, yogurt and crunchy oatmeal.
Guests are treated to a Flavia machine (if you don't know what this is go here ---), hundreds of movies to choose from and watch in the comfort of your bedroom, a gift shop that includes disposable cameras just in case, and wonderfully coordinated antiques and knickknacks in every room.

We rented both the Honey Dew Lodge and Honey Pot Cottage rooms and found both very charming. Two other larger rooms are available with whirlpool baths, a plus for those honeymooning or anniversary getaway couples. We stayed here during the Oshkosh Air show and have booked our rooms here for next year already! I also suggest staying here if you are taking in Horicon Marsh.

Listen to Barb's suggestions for dinner!

Imagine a wonderful old mansion turned into a more wonderfully appointed and comfortable B & B. Beautiful, comfortable, and usable furniture, the best beds, terrific breakfast and delightful conversation with the owners. Top of the line hot tubs and showers were refreshing and a great way to end and begin a day. More fun and interesting than the best hotels. Great country side to spend time in and relax.

What a glorious get-away this beautiful and historical inn proved to be! The inn, itself, is elegant and inviting. The theme of a honeybee is echoed throughout the furnishings and embellishment s in a subtle, yet clever way. The service and amenities are top notch, including a scrumptious breakfast of our choice and feather-topped beds. The downstairs has an enclosed porch area to sit or dine in. There is a living room, a gift shop, and an expansive stained glass window that sparkles as you go up the massive staircase. Each room has a fireplace and gorgeous bathroom fixtures, not to mention a private veranda. Plush white robes with the honeybee crest are provided for guests. A gold box of private label chocolates awaits you on your pillow. We could come and go as we liked, having as much as or little contact with the owners and other guests as we preferred. We were given a code to punch into the keypad on the sidedoor that allowed us to return at our leisure, even if it was late. Although our schedule only permitted us to stay one night, it felt like a week. This is as good as it gets.

My wife and I recently celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary by spending an overnight in the "Queen Bee Victorian" at the Honeybee B&B. The first thing you will hear is how incredibly beautiful this home is (a feast for the eyes) and the meticulous attention to detail - both in the restoration of the home while still possesing all the modern amenities, but also in the care and hospitality given to guests. From the warm welcome, to the romantic CD's in the room, to the plush bathrobes and towels, crisp beautiful linens, and so much more it was idyllic. While a collection of menus from areas resturants could have taken us away for a span of time, we didn't want to be far from the peacefulness and opulant attention of the hosts of this place - so we walked to a local family resturant for dinner.
Breakfast, as you have heard was equisite but so too was the manner in which it was served - elegant and relaxed. One could not help but feel pampered. The only thing that exceeded the exceptional quality of the setting was the highly refined skills of the hosts in determining if their guests wanted privacy or conversation - and we feasted upon both. We could not have had a more memorable treasured experience.

We spent a weekend at the Honeybee in July, and have to say that this was the best bed and breakfast experience ever! This home is absolutely beautiful. The rooms are even nicer than the web site. The innkeepers Barbara and Fred are very nice people. They made our stay very comfortable. Breakfasts were great. Looking forward to our next visit.

On a trip to Wisconsin with members of my extended family, we stayed at the Honeybee Inn. It is a charming, romantic getaway. The rooms and furnishings are beyond comfortable. The breakfasts were fantastic. It was a very relaxed and romantic weekend. Barbara and Fred are excellent hosts. We have already booked a return trip in January. This is the best B and B we've experienced :->
