Wright – right in Wisconsin!

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

Frank Lloyd Wright’s legacy is strong in Wisconsin, with his longtime residence & school – Taliesin – located near Spring Green. Now, his works are up for “World Heritage Site” designation from UNESCO; there are only 21 of these in the US! You’ll find Wright sites in WI open for tours at www.wrightinwisconsin.org . Our thanks to writer Mary Bergin for this info.  Get insider touring tips from nearby Innkeepers Kelly & Jay at Hill Street B&B  and Jean at Silver Star Inn, both located in Spring Green!

Watch the small-town world go by from Hill Street Inn's front porch.

GET REAL…BUTTER!

Saturday, December 7th, 2013

We’ve just heard the news that butter is back!
This is good news for our tastebuds, local dairy farmers, and our health.  While butter is a fat – a natural saturated fat – the artificial substitutes like ‘partially-hydrogenated oil’ aka transfats are now officially branded by the FDA as no longer generally recognized as safe.
The freshly baked (no preservatives necessary), locally sourced, bursting with natural flavor breakfasts found at our B&Bs start your Wisconsin day tastefully.  Blueberry French Toast Bake delights guests at Riverview B&B in Neshkoro – we’re sharing the recipe (found also on page 149 in the Wisconsin Bed & Breakfast Cookbook) with you.
Butter is back … for some of us, it never left …

 

It may be cold outside, but its (French) toasty inside at Riverview B&B. Neshkoro is just 10 miles east of 39/51 on Hwy E, using the Westfield exit.

Which Wisconsin City Was Named the Most Romantic in America?

Friday, April 20th, 2012


La Crosse, Wisconsin is known for its state parks, dynamite bike trails and cruises on the mighty Mississippi.  And for being the most romantic city in America.  This sweet honor was bestowed by Redbox, the movie rental company, based on the number of romantic comedy DVD rentals from the city. Looking for a La Crosse B&B getaway that has romance written all over it?  Try the Wilson Schoolhouse Inn, an old school house that rents to one party only, so you’ll have the entire inn to yourself.   The Four Gables B&B is on the National Register of Historic Places, with suites furnished with couples in mind.  In nearby Onalaska, the Lumber Baron Inn, also on the National Register, will make you feel like the royal newlyweds with their afternoon high tea, plus all the bedrooms have views of Lake Onalaska.  We’re thinking a B&B weekend in La Crosse could be a great anniversary gift to the one you love, hint, hint.
