Our little family (my husband, me and our daughter) had a wonderful stay in this charming Bed & Breakfast and enjoyed Appleton and our visit to Green Bay/Lambeau Field/ Packers Game(!!!) very much! Judy and Ron are very nice hosts and we felt very welcomed from the beginning. The rooms are very comfortable, very clean and with much love decorated....

Took a trip to Appletom, Wisconsin with two other couples to celebrate Octoberfest. It was the best Octoberfest ever with lots of good food, music, and arts and crafts. We stayed at Franklin Inn on Durkee, a charming and very clean B&B. The food was delicious, the service was excellent. Would highly recommend this B&B to anyone visiting Appleton, Wisconsin...

My husband and I were traveling back to Illinois from the UP and decided the day before that we would stop in the Appleton area to visit the EAA museum in Oshkosh. In keeping with our restful vacation, we decided that a B & B might be a better choice than a hotel for the night. Our decision was a...

Beautiful facilities, wonderful food, a delightful hostess who wants to be of service but who doesn't intrude! What more can you ask for? Franklin Inn provided us with a delightful atmosphere in a very convenient location. I recommend this Inn to anyone looking for rest, relaxation and a small town atmosphere.

Lovely home in the classic B&B style. Felt like family from the moment I was in the door. Hosts Judy and Ron were primarily responsible for this feeling; the inn it self was the cherry on top. Great room layout and decor with a mythical Shangri-La, a mystical, harmonious valley set somewhere on the periphery of China and top secret...

Our room was VERY CLEAN! The #1 thing that is important to me in a place. Judy was very nice and welcoming. Her breakfast was gourmet! She even made me a special gluten and dairy free dish. Plenty of off street parking.

We booked this bed and breakfast very last minute on our travels to Door County. The owners and hosts were very friendly, helpful, accommodating and interesting to talk to as they told us about the history of their home. The rooms were immaculate and very beautifully decorated. We stayed in Shangri-La with a beautiful, but very comfortable antique bed and...

When you step through the front door of the Franklin Inn on Durkee (the sister B&B to the Franklin Street Inn) in Appleton, you are greeted with a warm smile and the invitation to make the inn your home away from home. Innkeeper Judy showed us to our room -- the Shangri-La Room -- where my husband and I felt...
