We’ve become big fans of Bed and Breakfast accommodations over the years. They offer the best personal touches and unique experiences.  On a recent trip to the stunning Baraboo region near Wisconsin Dells, we stayed at one of the best B&B’s in Wisconsin (and that we’ve experienced anywhere): The Inn at Wawanissee Point.  Pulling up to this respite, we immediately felt relaxed.  To get to the front door, we walked amongst wildflowers and water features over a little bridge. The most calming start!

At the entrance, we could already see the incredible view and it literally stopped us in our tracks. And we even knew to expect it from photos! Owners Trudy and Dave greeted us and let us soak in the view before giving us a tour of the stunning property. The house is huge and set on 42 acres so there is plenty of space to roam.

While it’s hard to sum up our incredible visit, below are the top 7 Reasons to Book one the Best B&B’s in Wisconsin: The Inn at Wawanissee Point for your next midwestern adventure!

Note: Our stay was hosted. As always, opinions are my own.

1) Stunning View

When the URL directs you to the Inn at Wawanissee Point, there are high expectations! The Inn at Wawanissee Point truly does have one of the best views overlooking Lake Wisconsin below the bluffs. The view was gorgeous for our visit in summer and I can imagine the Fall would be beautiful too. They even have a hot tub you to better soak in the view!

2) Incredible Owners

Dave and Trudy are two of the nicest and most positive people you will meet.  We loved getting to know them more over the wine and cheese happy hour they serve daily for their guests.  From traveling the world, living abroad, starting a business, raising kids and building their dream home that they’ve opened up to others through the B&B, they have some incredible stories we enjoyed hearing about.

This home is a labor of love and as unique as their life journey has been.  They spent six years building their 10,000 square foot dream home. It even has personal touches added by members of their families.  How lucky are we that they lovingly open up their home to guests?!

3) Delicious Breakfast

Each morning, Dave and Trudy prepare a gourmet homemade breakfast served either on their back deck overlooking the lake or in the dining room. The details are incredibly thoughtful. For example, we were offered fresh Wisconsin cherry juice to mix in with Orange juice. Trudy had also made fresh granola for our yogurt. If you visit in the summer, you’ll also experience the hummingbirds that come to feed as you enjoy your breakfast.

The wine and cheese hour is also not to be missed! Trudy prepares delicious trays of award winning Wisconsin cheese, crackers, fruits and nuts that are the perfect way to wind down the day or as an appetizer before going out for dinner. 

4) Relaxing and private rooms

We stayed in the Bird’s Nest which has beautiful south and west facing windows.  Living in the city, I had to sleep with the window open to enjoy the sounds of nature!  The bed was incredibly comfortable with the softest sheets too – we both slept so well.  The bathroom also had a jet tub that would be great for more relaxing.

Our room was located near the elevator that helps make the inn accessible.  Each of the bedrooms is spaced out and there are no adjoining rooms so you’ll have a ton of privacy.

All of the modern amenities you’d expect (and then some) are present: luxurious soaps, TV, remote controlled window shades, bottled water, etc.

5) On Site Trails

The beautiful 42 acres have 3 miles of trails that Dave, Trudy and their families have created.  The trails are moss covered and often set alongside water.  Benches have been placed throughout for breaks as well.  In the winter, you can use the inn’s snowshoes for free to trek the beautiful snow-covered paths.  If you’re lucky, the resident dogs will patiently lead you like they did for us! These trails are a unique experience that make the Inn at Wawanissee Point of of the best B&B’s in Wisconsin.

6) Great location near activities

The entire region has so many activities to balance with time spent at the B&B! Some of our favorite activities were hiking and paddling at Devil’s Lake State Park and Mirror Lake State Park, taking a boat ride of the Upper Dells, enjoying Old Fashioneds at Wisconsin’s #1 Supper Club Ishnala and at the beautiful Wollersheim Winery & Distillery, walking in the lavender fields at New Life Lavender & Cherry Farm (seasonal) and taking Wisconsin’s only free ferry across Lake Wisconsin at Merrimac. 

For dining, don’t miss Cheeze Factory in Baraboo and coffee and brunch from Bella Goose. Some other favorites in the area include: Del Bar, Tumbled Rock, Little Village Café and Driftless Glen (if you stay at the B&B Sunday through Thursday, you’ll get a $25 gift card to use there too!).

7) Private experience

The B&B only has four rooms and is adults only so it feels very exclusive.  Since the house is 10,000 square feet and the property spans 42 acres, we at times felt like we had the place to ourselves! It would also be a beautiful place for a smaller wedding or a smaller family gathering. It’s an especially great meeting spot for people spanning Illinois, Minnesota or other parts of Wisconsin.

I hope you’re convinced to book a stay at this magical B&B! The Inn at Wawanisse Point is one of the best B&B’s in Wisconsin and we can’t wait to return in another season.
