What Wisconsin B&Bs Would Celebrities Choose

Monday, February 28th, 2011

With the Academy Awards duly presented, and “The King’s Speech” raking it in, makes us think – which Wisconsin B&Bs would be the first choice of celebrities and royals? A good starting point would naturally be those on the National Register of Historic Places. These properties are stunning, well-preserved, oft-photographed and much-talked-about, just like the stars themselves.

Cabin-Style B&Bs Actual Cure for Cabin Fever

Friday, February 18th, 2011

It’s about this time every year when we all start feeling a little squirrely. The walls seem to close in and we cringe every time the words “snow” and “cold” show up in the forecast yet again. So is there a cure for the proverbial cabin fever? Strangely enough, the answer may lie in staying at a cabin-style B&B in Wisconsin. Just the act of getting out of the house, exploring someplace new, sleeping under a plump down comforter and waking up to a gourmet breakfast prepared by someone other than yourself may be all the antidote you need to feel yourself again. May we suggest these B&Bs that either are actual cabins or deliver a cabin ambiance: Grapevine Log Cabins in Sparta; Tauschek’s Log Home in Plymouth; Inn at Lonesome Hollow in Soldiers Grove; Justin Trails in Sparta; Lazy Cloud B&B in Lake Geneva; and Bowman’s Oak Hill B&B in Wisconsin Dells.
