We had never been to the Dells before and I am so glad we chose to stay here rather than at one of the many hotels or water park resorts we drove past. From the very beginning we felt right at home at the Bowman's Oak Hill B&B. Nancy greeted us warmly (and with some amazing cookies I might add!) and our room (Elmer's Oak) was exactly as it was pictured on the website. I don't believe the bathroom was pictured and it was outdated, however, very clean and therefore very comfortable. The home itself was quaint, comfortable and away from all the business of the downtown Dells area. I wish we would have had more time to enjoy the backyard deck area, but perhaps next time.
Both David and Nancy were wonderful hosts- always happy to spend some time getting to know you and loved telling us stories about their children and grandchildren. Their two little dogs Cookie and Tessie were so sweet and really added to our experience.
Ok, the food.....what can I say? It was AMAZING!!!!! Personally, I am a breakfast nut and hope to own my own B&B one day. I hope my future B&B dishes will be as tasty as these! The first morning we had a southwestern frittata with bacon, fresh fruit and a nice, big homemade cinnamon roll. The second morning we had peaches & cream french toast with sausage and a fresh fruit smoothie. Everything was just perfect.
This is the fifth B&B I've stayed at and definitely one of the best. If you are a B&B fan like me, here is what you will probably love about it- #1. The food. #2. The hospitality. #3. The cleanliness. #4. The other guests (at least in our experience). #5. The proximity to other attractions. My only critique (not even a complaint because everything was wonderful) is that I prefer B&B's with a lot of architectural details and charm. This didn't have that, but the rest of the experience was top notch. We will definitely stay there again next time we are in the area.
