“Lovely B&B”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

My husband and I chose the Hamilton House as our home away from home when we went to the Dave Matthews Band concert at Alpine Valley. Kathleen, the innkeeper, was incredibly welcoming and helpful with suggestions for dinner and area attractions. We loved our room--very clean, plenty of space, romantic fireplace and jetted tub, and super comfortable bed. We also liked that the house was quiet and the breakfasts were delicious!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Cezanne room. The bed (queen size, I think) was very comfortable and we loved the j...

Dear Guest,

Thank you for providing a bit of information to future inn-goers.

I am pleased to read your found the inn quiet. We make every effort to provide a quiet, relaxing space for couples to spend time together.

While the Cezanne room currently has a full sized bed, not a queen, it does have the best jetted tub and I particularly like that the fireplace can be seen from the the bed; great for cuddling up in the winter months. I appreciate your comment about the hand held shower. We are currently researching ways to add a standard shower to this tub. Hopefully it will be in place at your next visit.

Thank you,
Kathleen - Innkeeper

The Hamilton House was our first bed and breakfast experience and it exceeded our expectations. Hospitality is the main theme from the innkeepers, Kathy and Jim. Kathy had great suggestions about things to do in the local area and did a fantastic job at making sure we had everything we needed for an enjoyable trip. We were so fascinated by the history of the house that Jim shared over breakfast Sunday morning - the stay is worth it to learn more about that home.

The Hamilton House was beautiful and well-kept. The deck was a great place to relax while watching the birds and checking out the flowers. Our bed was very comfortable. We had everything in our room we could have needed. We enjoyed meeting the other guests over breakfast and in the parlor.

So glad to see people living their dream, like the owners of this bed and breakfast. When someone is passionate about what they are doing, it becomes obvious to those who get to experience it!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Monet - very roomy and comfortable.

Incredible vintage home in downtown Whitewater. Great restaurant called The Black Sheep within walking distance. Lots of things to do in the area. The rooms are large, clean, comfortable and private. Really top notch. The innkeeper is friendly, professional and helpful. Love this place.

My wife and I stayed at the Hamilton while seeing a show at the Fireside Theatre. We have stayed at B&Bs all over the country and this one ranks right up there. Beautiful house with beautiful architectural features. Kathleen warned us that our room tended to get cold and it certainly was when we got back from dinner. But the little space heater warmed it right up. The bed was extremely comfortable, breakfast was very good, and the after breakfast conversation (the highlight of any stay as far as I'm concerned) was engaging. Kathleen says since she was a little girl, all she's ever wanted to do was run an inn and it shows. She does a nice job.

Dear Guest, Thank you for choosing to stay with us while in the area for a show at the Fireside Theatre. The secret hiding place is the floor is such an exciting piece of the Inn's history. The chilly floor boards in the heart of the Wisconsin's Windy Winter seems a small price to pay once you know the story behind the hollow floor. I am glad to hear that the space heater kept the chill away.

It is a treat to be able to live my dream and care for such wonderful guests.

We appreciate you taking the time to share a bit of your experience with future guests.

We look forward to seeing you the next time you are in town for a show.

Thank you, Kathleen - Innkeeper

The Hamilton House in Whitewater, WI was a dream come true for a Bed and Breakfast experience. The Inn Keeper Kathleen was professional, friendly and helpful. Our stay was relaxing and comfortable, while being private and convenient for our plans.
We dined at The Black Sheep Restaurant which was suggested by our hostess. One of the top three place we have ever dined! Fabulous service, food, and atmosphere.
Whitewater Wisconsin, a hidden treasure for travel.

Kathleen was the most gracious Innkeeper! She made both my wife & I feel so special and told us the unique histrory surronding the home we were staying in. This made it feel even more special for us. Her breakfasts were absolutely incredible, and were the best meals we had over the entire weekend we were there! I loved also that she took time to share the local sites and gave great recommendations on what we could do to enhance our getaway weekend in Whitewater.
