Franklin Street Inn

We welcome you to come and relax with us. Experience the comfort, beauty and warmth of the Franklin Street Inn in Appleton, WI, a restored Queen Anne Victorian. We combine the elegance of a bygone era with today's modern conveniences for a memorable experience.

The Inn is nestled in a charming neighborhood of historic homes. The  Innkeepers, Keith & Lori Hansen, go beyond your expectations to guarantee a pleasurable stay.  Your reservation includes a full elegant breakfast in our formal dining room.

The 21st century amenities you value most when you travel can be found here: private baths, top notch beds with luxurious bedding and pillows, elegant robes, free Wi-Fi, Smart TVs, and comfortable sofas and easy chairs. Pamper yourself in one of our suites with a whirlpool and fireplace. Our full elegant breakfast can also be served in your suite.  On-site massages or reflexology therapy are available to help create a relaxing stay.
Our rooms and suites have been decorated with great attention to detail.  Enjoy the beauty of the 19th Century through the antique decor in the house.  

Guests relax on our wrap around porch, in our backyard gardens, or by the parlor fireplace. We always provide complimentary hot and cold beverages, and we provide welcome treats on occasion or upon request.

Our romantic Wisconsin bed and breakfast is a unique place for your next getaway, or for celebrating an anniversary or honeymoon. Guests also travel to the inn for murder mystery events, afternoon teas, small intimate weddings and receptions, baby and bridal showers, bachelorette parties, business meetings and retreats.

Our Inn is a short walk from the History Museum at the Castle, Trout Museum of Art, Lawrence University, City Park, the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center, fine restaurants, City Center events and shopping. We can also provide you with a walking tour of our historic neighborhood. We are located a short drive away from the Fox River Mall, Lambeau Field (home of the Green Bay Packers), the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Museum and summer show, several golf courses and beautiful Door County.

William Rhodes, a local grocer, contracted architect W.W. Delong to design this historic 1897 Victorian home.  DeLong included a double air space principle by building a double vestibule at the front entrance. The original oak pocket doors, grand oak staircase, lovely birds-eye maple hardwood floors, window seats, high ceilings, oriental rugs, stained glass windows, and old chandeliers give you the warm feeling of yesteryear. The home is listed on the Wisconsin State Historic Record.
