“Great Place to stay in Milwaukee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

I was fortunate to find Manderley B&B on a recent business trip to Milwaukee. The conference hotels were all full and I checked B&Bs. Manderley was close to downtown (ten minutes by car) and easy to find. The room I stayed in was beautiful and spacious, the hosts, Marie and Andy, were warm and gracious and the breakfasts were top notch and plentiful. Don't miss it!

My husnand chose this place for a surprise weekend for my birthday. The owners were extremely welcoming and down to earth. We were comfortable right away. We stayed in Bessie's room which was beautiful. The owner has done a fantastic job with the painting and windows. Definately stay for breakfast. The pancakes were phenominal! The location looks questionable at first sight, but don't let that deter you. We never had any safety concerns and the neighborhood is making a comeback. Very close to all the downtown sights.

I chose this place on the suggestion of other reviewers here and couldn't have been more pleased with the results. My girlfriend and I stayed here despite the fact that we were a younger couple and had never stayed at a B&B before. From the moment we stepped inside, however, the owners made us feel right at home. The pictures online don't do justice to the beauty of this place. You could just as easily enjoy spending an entire weekend indoors as you could exploring the city itself.

We stayed in Sophie's room, enjoying all the amenities on hand and falling asleep on one of the most comfortable beds I've experienced in years. Breakfast was excellent, as was the shared company of the other guests. There's nothing like the experience of seeing different lives coming together under one roof for a brief, shared moment in time. I'd certainly suggest staying here with a full house. The more, the merrier, I always say.

So yes, all in all, I can't recommend this place enough. Fair prices, great accommodations, sweet company, and memories to last you a lifetime.

Excellent experience at our 1st B&B! Wonderful location for ballgames, music venue, trips downtown, or the zoo. Exquisite breakfast and clean, friendly atmosphere. Exactly what I expected in a B&B. Owners were amazingly helpful and attentive without being smothering. lol would recommend this hotel for any couple looking for a nice place to visit Milwaukee.

My husband and I stayed at the Manderley B&B for a romantic weekend and we were so impressed. The B&B was gorgeous, and we loved the beautiful period decor, and stained glass art done by Andy. Though historic, the place was immaculately clean. We stayed in Millie's room, and particularly enjoyed the jacuzzi and nightly fires in the fireplace. The breakfasts were delicious and fresh - - we couldn't get enough. Both Marie and Andy, our hosts, were incredibly welcoming, warm and helpful. The small touches, such as the guest closet stocked with soda, home-made cookies set out each night, were lovely. We would certainly stay here again if we return to Milwaukee!

Room Tip: Millie's room was lovely

Just got home from 2 nights at Manderley Mansion....a beautifully restored victorian mansion from the 1880's. Stayed in the warmth & comfort of "Millie's" room complete with fireplace and whirlpool tub. Our hosts, Andy & Marie have done an unbelievable task of restoring this home. Every room is filled with antiques and period furniture...Andy has created the most beautiful stained glass windows....what a treat to enjoy breakfast which included freshly made banana bread and warm blackberry muffins in a dining room with 6 foot tall stained glass windows.

This was a week-end trip with 2 other couples. The 6 of us enjoyed the living room area with gas fireplace for relaxing and talking with Andy & Marie who are extremely knowledgeable on the history of the area and offered many tips on sites and dining. They have an "extensive" library of books on Milwaukee and Wisconsin in general.

Each late afternoon we found "treats" in the common area to enjoy.

And yes the floors creak, but if you were 120 yrs old, you would creak too...just part of the charm and warmth of history.

Great place, great breakfast, wonderful hosts!!!
