Easy street parking, easy walk to lots of places to eat, and good sunset viewing were all parts of this brief stay. Breakfast was also very good. If I were going to...

This is an historic Victorian Style house, completely redone in the period style on the inside. The rooms are very comfortable, have private, well appointed baths with showers. There is a small conservatory off the house in the back garden which is a great place to spend a lazy afternoon. A short walk will take you to a place to...

This Inn not only affords a superb view of Lake Mendota, it also boasts an innkeeper who goes out of her way to make sure her guests have all the information they need for a fun visit. And the breakfasts were excellent as well.
