A Tale of Two Inns

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

Have you noticed – on this website’s home page, “Featured Bed & Breakfasts” shows 2 ever-changing B&Bs. The 2 inns caught my eye – how different – how unique – each is!

River’s Bend Inn (Mayville – near the Horicon Marsh) is a gracious English Country Manor. The equally gracious innkeeper, Jayne, has quite a history too – as a high fashion model in New York and as a regular date of John F. Kennedy. Jayne likely was told she should write a book, so she did, and it is a fun summer read:  The River’s Bend.

The second featured inn, Thunder Valley Inn Resort, is one mile from WI Dells, yet a ‘world’ away – a Scandinavian world, that is! Pet friendly Wee Hus is a cozy cottage snuggled next to the Farm House. Most rooms in the Swedish House and Farm House have an extra bed or two for children … schedule a visit to the inn’s dairy farm or a hands-on bread baking session.

Thunder Valley Inn Resort ... dairy farm tours, Sunday Farmer's Market,  Threshing Farm Suppers - a meal and entertainment with all the Ole and Lena jokes you can eat!

River's Bend Inn, once a Victorian mansion with a wrap-around porch, now an English Country Manor. Guest rooms have a view of the river, thru typical English diamond-grid windows.

There’s nothing quite as sweet as the sound of birds chirping. It’s that harbinger of spring that melts even the grumpiest soul.

Great bird watching opportunities await at the Horicon Marsh. Stay at the nearby Honeybee Inn B&B, Horicon.
