Some B&B Myths Die Hard

Monday, May 13th, 2013

A recent post by writer Andrew Knowlton, (aka “The Foodist”) at Bon Appétit magazine had us shaking our heads and tsk-tsking. Try as we might in the B&B industry to dispel myths, some food writers simply haven’t  gotten the message. So, first read his post here, then continue with our blog. It’s all so not true! Here in Wisconsin, nearly 100% of B&Bs have private baths and not just any baths but spa-like baths – the White Lace Inn – Sturgeon Bay  and  Canyon Road Inn - Turtle Lake are perfect examples. You don’t have to eat with other guests, although many travelers like the experience. Just choose an inn that provides in-room breakfast like the Otter Creek Inn of Eau Claire, where you’ll customize your own breakfast (and dining time) from their menu.   Or, choose the communal table set-up at Pickwick Inn of East Troy. Curfew, shmerfew….there is no such thing. Same goes for rigid check-in times. Who needs a mini-bar when most innkeepers provide free beverages (unless of course you prefer to pay for water). Many offer complimentary libations and snacks in the evening too. Who wouldn’t love the Wisconsin wine and cheese tasting at Cold Spring Inn, Hubertus…from their own vineyard! To borrow from the line in that Oldsmobile TV spot, this is not your grandmother’s B&B.

Breakfast at the Otter Creek Inn is as individual as you are: choose your entree, sides, and beverages and schedule delivery to your guest room door so that you may enjoy breakfast-in-bed or at the private table in your guestroom.

Monday, June 25th, 2012

The U.S. Women’s Open is back at Blackwolf Run Golf Course in Kohler July 2-8. According to the course web site, Blackwolf Run is regarded as one of Pete Dye’s crowning achievements.  It’s played host to the Andersen Consulting World Golf Championships in 1995, 1996 and 1997 as well as the historic 1998 U.S. Women’s Open, with the U.S. Women’s Open returning for the second time.  There’s a nice variety of Wisconsin B&Bs near Kohler, if you want to stay and play the course yourself.  Just click on the Eastern Waters & Door County region on our map. For something farther northwest, Canyon Road Inn in Turtle Lake is now offering a golf package.  And check out our Golf Map to see courses in the state and nearby B&Bs.  We’d help you with your swing too if we could!

Golfers and non-golfers can stroll these greens at Canyon Road Inn, Turtle Lake. Innkeepers Patti and Turner assure you "we do all the work - you just enjoy"!
