Description

Circa 1895. This graceful Queen Anne Victorian, shaded by a tall birch tree, is in the heart of Whitewater National Historic District, adjacent to the University of Wisconsin. It was built for Edward Engebretson, mayor of Whitewater. Yellow tulip and sunny daffodils fill the spring flower beds, while fuchsias and geraniums bloom in summertime behind a picket fence. The inn's gables, flower-filled veranda and three-story turret feature a handsome green tin roof. Each guest room is named for a Wisconsin hardwood. The Red Oak Room, Cherry Room and Bird's Eye Maple Room all offer handsome antiques in their corresponding wood, Laura Ashley prints, antique sheets, pristine heirloom-laced pillowcases and down comforters. A hearty breakfast is sometimes served on the wraparound veranda, and there are kitchen facilities available for light meal preparation. Whitewater Lake and Kettle Moraine State Forest are five minutes away.

Love this little B&B right next door to the college. Yummy breakfast and great hospitality. Main Street location hosts pretty historic homes.

Spoils You

Nancy makes it feel like home, and the Victorian house is beautiful and comfy. The rooms are spacious and varied and clean. The warm wood finishes were so beautiful, and each guest room features a different wood. Nancy collects antique pillow cases and they are ironed so pristinely. You feel like you live in a mansion in the early 1900s. I've been here two or three times and have always been welcomed and cared for so well.
