No tie Required!

Monday, June 9th, 2014

The much maligned Father’s Day gift – the TIE – isn’t required at our B&Bs.

If Dad enjoys sipping  a cold one, we’ll suggest:  A stay at Brewery Creek, named by CNN last year as one the Top Ten Luxury Beer Vacation Destinations in America.  Located in Mineral Point, a quaint pre-Civil War town, brewmaster / innkeeper Jeff churns out European style beers. Check out our micro-beer trail map and discover what’s brewing throughout the state.

If Dad enjoys standing in a cold one – a world class trout fishing stream that is – the private back yard of the Mecan River House (Coloma) delivers, with many DNR newly created holes for trout to gather.
Let Dad make the choice of where / when, with a WBBA Gift Certificate – we mail the same day you order, Monday thru Friday.

At the Mecan River House B&B, a river does run through it! Trout fisherman can walk right down to the Mecan River, a #1 trout fishing stream that runs length of the property, with many DNR newly created holes for trout to gather.

At Brewery Creek Inn, from the vat to the tap to your glass - the European style micro-brews never leave the building!

Musings on Fishing, Food and Father’s Day

Friday, May 18th, 2012

Fishing season is officially underway in Wisconsin, which is music to anglers’ ears.  If you’d like to give the sport a try, take advantage of the free statewide fishing weekend June 2-3.   Then, if you’re hooked, purchase a fishing license online.   Just for fun, we did a search for B&Bs that serve a full breakfast (translate that to hearty, homemade and satisfying) and tout their proximity to fishing.  More than 100 inns matched the search criteria.  Which led us to think – what if you slipped those search results inside one of our Wisconsin Bed & Breakfast Association gift certificates and presented to Dad for Father’s Day.  As far as Father’s Day gifts go, seems like the catch of the day to us!

At the end of the day, relax with complimentary beverages / wine.
