Seek the Unique at TWO NEW INNS!

Thursday, April 2nd, 2015

We’re delighted to tell you about 2 B&Bs that have just joined WBBA.

Door County Lighthouse Inn in Egg Harbor/Door County is a cozy lighthouse-styled B&B. Innkeepers Claire & Frank are your source for ‘everything lighthouse’ – including lighthouse tours by trolley packages. And, rather than choose which winery to visit, check out their Wine & Dine package: tour & taste at 4 wineries, dine, and leave the driving back to the inn to the trolley. Claire notes: “in May we expect the cherry and apple tree blossoms to show!”

Allyn Mansion B&B is one of those rare properties at which the term ‘elegant’ is appropriate – it was the grand prize winner nationally for historic restoration and is considered among Wisconsin’s 20 most remarkable homes – it’s in the book! But, relax … at Innkeeper Randy’s evening wine and craft beer reception, and therafter in your spacious suite furnished with a 32” flat screen tv (premium satellite access), WiFi w/a Samsung Galaxy 4 tablet and stereo system. And just so you know, your private bath is stocked with aromatherapy soaps and plus Turkish towels. The Allyn Mansion B&B is located in Delevan, in the Lake Geneva area.

Step back into the elegant past with all the amenities of today at the Allyn Mansion.

Taking Historic Restoration into Our Own Hands

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

We have a hunch that the member inns of the Wisconsin B&B Association have done more for historic preservation in this state than any other industry. And, by the way, historic inns could mean historic strurcture but modern amenities and interior design. Want to build a B&B itinerary around the state’s 10 historic sites? Here’s the link to the State Historical Society’s list of those sites, along with the link to our search-by-city function.
