Scrapbooking Retreats at Wisconsin B&Bs

Friday, March 22nd, 2013

Scrapbooking is nice as a solitary pursuit, but wouldn’t you rather cut and paste surrounded by a crew of your favorite fellow scrapbookers? If yes, then consider making it an away occasion. Miller’s Daughter B&B in Green Lake hosts scrapbooking weekends fall through winter, with an area designated specifically just for that.  At the Franklin Street Inn in Appleton, innkeeper July Halma, a former art teacher, says her B&B is a “Crop Til You Drop” retreat location. And at Lake Orchard Farm B&Bin Sheboygan, three-night scrapbooking retreats are held in their well-lit clubhouse area, with use of fully equipped kitchen included in the package.

What’s Between Green Bay and Door County?

Saturday, December 15th, 2012

There’s an area of Wisconsin that goes by Kewaunee County that is oft overlooked because it lies in the shadows of Green Bay and Door County.  Yet, it’s a sweet sliver of the state with some great insider finds, as chronicled in this wonderful travel piece from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.  Especially nice to see two of our member inns – Joannes B&B in De Pere and The Red Forest B&B in Two Rivers – recommended under Where to Stay.

These two videos from the Professional Association of Innkeepers International, our trade organization, should strike a chord with all you die-hard Wisconsin B&Bers who relish a friendly face, search out quiet surroundings, and have no desire to stay in someone’s spare bedroom dubiously billed as a B&B experience.  Our innkeepers are grateful for their loyal guests and, who knows, maybe these videos will deliver a few more to their doorsteps! Friendly Welcome   Not a Scary Spare Bedroom
