“A home away from home”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

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 I don't believe the bathroom was pictured and it was outdated, however, very clean and therefore very comfortable.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.

Room Tip: Choose a cottage if you would like a little more privacy.

This was our third time visiting Bowman's and every time is as good as the next. Dave and Nancy are the best hosts. If there is anything you need do not hesitate to ask. They are like family and the food is just like home only better, I do love my wife's cooking. If you are looking for a quiet corner of the Wisconsin Dells visit Bowman's.

This is an absolutely wonderful place to stay when visiting the Wisconsin Dells! We stayed in Aunt Geri's Cabin and it was very nice! Our hosts have thought of everything! When we arrived we were greeted and given discount cards for the various attractions. They had a variety of movies you can watch in your room and we found freshly baked cookies waiting for us!

The decorations were very quaint and it was like stepping back in time! We had a wonderful porch to relax on with very comfortable chairs! Our hosts provided extra pillows and blankets, wonderfully thick robes, and a coffee pot with a variety of hot beverages!

In the morning we had a wonderful breakfast and they were even able to provide for our special dietary needs. The grounds are very well kept and every detail is given attention! We would definitely stay here again and recommend it without any reservations at all! We loved every minute!!

Room Tip: I was given a tour of the entire property and every room is beautifully decorated! If you would lik...

This was our first experience at a B & B and we couldn't have asked for more. David and Nancy Bowman were excellent host. Nancy makes the most amazing breakfasts! The cabin we stayed in on their property was kept up so well and very clean (just like the rest of their property) we had fresh cookies waiting for us upon our arrival talk about feeling at home away from home. David and Nancy shared wonderful stories with us and helped us make choices on what attractions were worth while in the Dells and the best spots to eat. My husband and I had an amazing vacation thanks so much to the Bowman Family! Can't wait to come back!

The location is close to the main attractions of the dells but peacefully set back in its own property with no reminder that you are in a major tourist area of Wisconsin. The cottage amenities are comparable to a luxury hotel. The owner/ operators are kind and hospitable, and the homemade breakfast is worthy of a 5 star rating all by itself. We even seen some deer in yard. We will be going back next year.

Room Tip: Cottages offer the most privacy

I've been to many a B&B, and this is the best of the bunch. This is obviously a labor of love for Dave and Nancy. The property is a welcome respite from the commercial hullabaloo of of the Dells area. I hope to return.

Room Tip: It's all good.
