A Cure for Downton Abbey Withdrawal

If you’re among the growing legion of fans of the PBS series “Downton Abbey” then, like us, you’re already in withdrawal knowing Season 3 won’t premiere until 2013.  Until then, may we kindly suggest you plan to holiday at one of these Wisconsin B&Bs known for their opulence and luxury as a way to ease your pain and channel the Crawleys.  We believe the Dowager Countess of Grantham herself would approve.  In alphabetical order by city, we unveil our most Downton Abbey-esque B&Bs: Rittenhouse Inn – BayfieldWashington House – Cedarburg,  Joannes B&B – DePereAngel Inn – Green LakeWestphal Mansion Inn – HartfordMcCormick House – HaywardPhipps Inn – HudsonLivingston Inn – MadisonLauerman House Inn / M&M Victorian – MarinetteLudlow Mansion – MonroeInn at Pine Terrace – Oconomowoc The Roth House – Soldiers GroveStrawberry Lace Inn – SpartaDreams of Yesteryear – Stevens PointScofield House – Sturgeon Bay, Apple Tree Lane B&B – WaupacaIsadora’s B&B – West Bend.
