We have been guests at the Appleton Inn several times over the last year and Gordie and Carol have always treated us special. We love the cozy rooms, close proximity to downtown Appleton and fun tasty breakfast. The value proposition is also superior to any of the area hotels. The Luongo's St. Louis, Missouri

Unfortunately I had the worst experience at a bed and breakfast. The room was pretty but the linens were worn out. The walk through the kitchen to the room was fine but not when there were dirty dishes in the sink. The breakfast was disappointing especially with the yogurt still in the original packaging. Would not recommend this stay to...

This is a convenient location, and the proprietor was very pleasant. Breakfast was good, too. If you love quilts, this is the place to stay -- they also host regular quilting weekends, and the product of those weekends is on display everywhere. On the other hand, if you want a place to put down your toothbrush and toothpaste in the...

The owners are friendly. The place is clean. Breakfast is good, you are even offered seconds. I would recommend is as excellent except the B&B is not an old mansion with the original bedrooms rented out. Rooms have been made out of parts of a former old home. Rooms off the road in front are quieter. The inn is on...

We really loved this personal, and exquisitely decorated little spot!! Carole and Gordie were priceless. They went out of their way to make our stay wonderful. It was a little taste of Americana. They represent the best of what a bed & breakfast should be.

We had a sisters shopping weekend and decided to try a B&B. This place was so clean with fun, unique decor. It felt like we were in a fairytale tea party.

We stayed 2 nitghts at the most wonderful B&B. The hosts were gracious and friendly. Could tell when we wanted to be alone, but available to chat or serve. Quiete neighborhood. The rooms were beautifully decorated. Our room was large and comfortable. Everything we could have asked for on our Weekend date!

We stayed at this B & B while we attended a friend's wedding in Appleton. Carol and Gordie were gracious hosts who seemed to really care about the well being of their guests. We received a free upgrade to a well decorated room with a very tasty breakfast. The common spaces were inviting and well furnished. Overall a most enjoyable...
