This is absolutely the best B&B at which we have stayed! Beautiful, very spacious and comfortable. Nice, quiet, safe location right next to the zoo and very close to Green Lake. The breakfasts were incredible! We have stayed at many B&Bs over the years and I have never felt I needed to write a review (I don't review places I don't like!). We stayed three nights and were not dissappointed. We arrived rather late and were happy to find restaurant menus available for ordering in, as well as a fridge, plates, silverware and coffee makings. It was wonderful to have the small kitchen. The pantry and fridge downstairs were well stocked and an excellent idea that made our stay so much more comfortable. Also the complimentary wine on the second floor was a nice touch. Very, very clean and very friendly staff. We were able to have breakfast in our suite, which for me was a very nice touch and made it that much more comfortable. Breakfast was always on time and beautifully presented. I highly recommend this B&B.
As for feedback to the owner, just a couple suggestions that in no way should be taken as a "mark down" on the place. 1. Consider covers for the breakfast trays so the food stays hot longer, especially when serving eggs, they cool off quickly :-). 2. And I don't know if this can be helped, but the wonderful innkeepers were a bit noisy first thing in the morning while prepraring breakfast and we were usually woken up when they came in. I understand older houses are not as insulated, so there may not be a solution for this, but thought I would mention it.
All in all an exceptional place to stay!!
