I went with 4 other friends for the weekend. Bob & Sue were very helpful informing us about local events, directions etc. Sue is a wonderful cook! The B&B is an older home and is need of some renovations.

Old building decorated with antiques. Room and the house itself were very clean and comfortable. Food was excellent. Fresh fruit and a hot breakfast was provided each day.

Sue and Bob made us feel right at home when we visited for an overnight to see a concert at Alpine Valley. The B&B is tucked into a woody area on the edge of farms, well kept and interesting. Our breakfast was outstanding and we really appreciated Sue taking our meal preferences into consideration. We wish we had more time...

Bob and Sue were so kind, interesting, and friendly. The breakfast was the best we've ever had. SO delicious. The place was peaceful and charming, a real respite. When it was time to leave and our RV didn't start, Bob even gave us a jump! Wonderful!

Bob and Sue, the owners, are super friendly and made us feel right at home. The prepared breakfasts were outstanding! It was a short five minute drive in to Lake Geneva from the B&B. I wish we could have spent more time there.
