Celebration Vacations at Wisconsin B&Bs

Friday, May 20th, 2011

One of the biggest travel trends is “celebration vacations.” So, what’s on your calendar that’s celebration-worthy? Finishing up that graduate degree, renewing your wedding vows, a birthday you’d rather not celebrate with a surprise party, a big promotion that’s going to require you be refreshed and ready to roll? No need to turn the celebration into a chore. Just book a B&B and off you go. It’s that easy, giving you another reason to celebrate.

Calling all amateur and not-so-amateur Audubons – the Wisconsin Bed & Breakfast Association has just launched a birding map that is as complete as they come.

See Which Wisconsin Inns Made Top 30 List in Midwest Living Magazine

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

We just received word from Midwest Living Magazine that four of our member B&Bs are included in their list of the region’s 30 Best Bed & Breakfast Destinations. The magazine’s writers spent more than a year researching B&Bs, staying at inns all over the Midwest. The inns were secretly graded on decor, the owner’s approach to hospitality, quality of the room amenities with private baths a requirement, quality and presentation of the homemade breakfast, and general atmosphere. So, in the words of Midwest Living writers, we congratulate these inns who represent the best of the best in B&B travel:

McCormick House Inn in Hayward, WI – At this 1887 Victorian, patrons enjoy pillow-top mattresses, Egyptian cotton sheets, preprogrammed iPods, and English-style gardens.

Old Rittenhouse Inn in Bayfield, WI – Stately Queen Anne architecture meets modern amenities at this Inn which overlooks Lake Superior.

Inn at Cedar Crossing in Sturgeon Bay, WI – An on-site bakery churns out locally famous morning buns.

Honeybee Inn Bed and Breakfast in Horicon, WI – Guests of this Victorian come to relax on four-poster feather beds.
