“Amazing time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

I decided to surprise my wife with a mini vacation....and since neither of us had ever been to a bed and breakfast, we thought we'd give it a shot.....and it was GREAT! Bob and Sue are suuuuper nice and helpful. We got there on a Friday evening and were greeted with fresh from the oven cookies and glasses of wine. The rooms were very nicely made and house overall was beautifully decorated. There were 2 other couples there but there was so much room in the house that you wouldn't even know it. On saturday bob drove us to the lake so that we could walk around the trail. Where can you get that service in a hotel? And dont get started on food...sue is a wonderful cook and you always leave the table stuffed!! Will def be going back.

My husband and me we spent just one night at this lovely B&B.
Our room, the Rose room, is so warm and cozy, you HAVE to see it.
Bob and Sue are exceptional and lovely persons; they take care of you from your arrival till your departure.
And their breakfast?....it’s absolutely amazing!!!!!

They cook everything themselves, they offer you different kind of choices, from fruits, eggs, muffins, and even desserts.
The breakfast table is prepared with a touch of elegance , with candles , flowers , porcelain plates and silver cutlery and all the guests (total 8, 4 rooms) have some time to spend together and speak each others.
They open all year long and , for sure, we'll come back very soon there in that quiet piece of fantastic nature where, all around, you can hear just the sound of birds and the smell of coffee coming from downstairs, where Bob and Sue making your wake up much more pleasant.
See you soon...

I went with 4 other friends for the weekend. Bob & Sue were very helpful informing us about local events, directions etc. Sue is a wonderful cook! The B&B is an older home and is need of some renovations.

Old building decorated with antiques. Room and the house itself were very clean and comfortable. Food was excellent.
Fresh fruit and a hot breakfast was provided each day. Bob and Sue were wonderful hosts, talked with us about the right amount of time. Bob provided us with information on what to do in Lake geneva. We would definitely go back to this place.

Room Tip: we had the sunshine room and was very happy with it.

Sue and Bob made us feel right at home when we visited for an overnight to see a concert at Alpine Valley. The B&B is tucked into a woody area on the edge of farms, well kept and interesting. Our breakfast was outstanding and we really appreciated Sue taking our meal preferences into consideration. We wish we had more time to explore the area, because it's such a pleasant place.

A wonderful place to stay! Filled with warmth and hospitality! Bob and Sue open their hearts and their beautiful home. Comfortable room, delicious breakfast, and great conversation. Be sure to ask them for their dining and recreation suggestions. You won't be disappointed.

Bob and Sue were so kind, interesting, and friendly. The breakfast was the best we've ever had. SO delicious. The place was peaceful and charming, a real respite. When it was time to leave and our RV didn't start, Bob even gave us a jump! Wonderful!
