We really didn't know what to expect when we arrived at the Roots Inn late last June. For years, we had stayed at the French Country Inn in Ephraim which, sadly, had closed as a business the year before. So, we decided to stay at a B&B in Sister Bay that was still listed as the "Inn on Maple." We...

...All equally wonderful. I was here on a Mother - Daughter weekend in the depths of a cold dark icy winter. Tastefully decorated with a mix of heritage furniture, with a touch of modern paint and warm decor schemes, the place is warm and comfortable, and within easy walking distance and driving to multiple destinations that remain open in Winter...

Everything was excellent and clean for my 2 nite stay. Mattress was extremely comfortable for a great nite's sleep. Food was out of this world. I would highly recommend anyone who wants to get away from the city to stay here for a week and enjoy themselves. Sara and Collin have done a tremendous job with this establishment and are...

My wife and I spent a night here after Thanksgiving. When we arrived we were greeted by owners Collin and Sara in the Kitchen/Bar. We enjoyed a drink with them while watching the Badger game and learning about the inn. Our room was very nice, and we were also told that they're in the process of upgrading them as well....

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!

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...
