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!

B&B Getaway Giveaway Week 7

Monday, March 17th, 2014

Here’s a quick quiz: what do trout fishing, the American Birkebeiner, and a 36-mile view have in common?  All are found at B&Bs – showing that when we say ‘seek the unique’, we mean it! The stunning view from the pub and virtually all of the Inn at Wawanissee Point is both relaxing and a stimulation to explore – and perhaps motivation to ‘work off’ the gourmet breakfast.  A world away in a 20 minute drive from WI Dells.  And referencing the Dells, innkeeper Agnes says ‘when you’ve had enough stimulation’, head just 40 miles north to the Mecan River House (Coloma) – with a #1 trout fishing stream running along the length of the property.  Unwind on the deck, or search out antiques and hand-crafted Amish items at the nearby shops.  Heading further north to the Hayward / Birchwood area, the Cobblestone B&B is a destination in any season.  Of course, the Birkebeiner  x-c  trails are the winter draw (and just a few hundred miles of snowmobile trails too), more trail systems offer fat biking, mountain biking, hiking…”run, bike, ski” is the northwoods mantra.  Enter our Facebook contest to win a 2 night stay at Cobblestone B&B, Inn at Wawanisee Point, or Mecan River House http://a.pgtb.me/qVSz88

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.
