My husband and I stayed for a weekend in November - the rooms were clean, the breakfast was delicious and Sara and Collin went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. The location is great: two minute walk to the water, restaurants, bars, etc. Will definitely stay again.

We ate a late lunch with friends who had been here before....what a wonderful find. The soup and sandwiches were authentic home grown recipes and ingredients sourced locally. The quaint and friendly atmosphere added to an overall relaxing 5star experience...we loved this place!

I've stayed at a ton of bed and breakfasts and this is now at the top of my list of favorites . The food was creative and delicious and the bar was a...

Our first visit to the area, my husband and I discovered Roots serendipitous by walking past the open door. We were warmly greeted and seated by Sara, who with Collin, her husband/chef, own Roots. The menu offerings are unique and intriguing. The Potato Waffles & Chicken was wonderful. The pulled Amish chicken, was combined with house honey, dijon & garlic...

Too say we had a fantastic time during our stay at Roots simply wouldn't be enough - the owners kindly greeted us upon our arrival and brought our luggage up to our room, which had the most peaceful view of the lake that you could see through the changing fall leaves. It was picture perfect. The location is perfect, it's...

My husband and I went to Sister Bay for a weekend get away with friends. We all stayed at Roots Inn & Kitchen and had a blast! We walked to the lake, downtown, and Sister Bay bowl. Amazing breakfast - Collin and Sara were super friendly and top notch service! Hope to be back soon.

Roots Inn & Kitchen was everything I had hoped it would be for a fun and relaxing weekend. We were greeted upon arrival by Sara and Colin (the owners) and shown to our room. It was cute, clean and cozy! Everything we were looking for. The restaurant side of the house was awesome! So comfortable and welcoming. Living in Chicago...

The inn itself was very clean and the location was ideal as it is right down town. However, the room (Room 2, Twin bed room) was so small it made me claustrophobic. On top of that, they served non-traditional foods: Baked kale for appetizers which tasted like burnt cabbage leaves to me; and for breakfast they served what they called...

You stay here at the owners’ convenience. You eat breakfast when it’s convenient for them to plate it, which is promptly at 8 a.m. You show up at 8:30 or 8:45 and the kitchen will be locked. You get a complementary drink and homemade appetizer promptly at 4 p.m., unless there is a Packer or Badger game on, which is...
