I chose this B&B as it was in Green Lake and we attended a family wedding in Ripon. Although this was a family wedding weekend, we treated it more as a couples weekend getaway. The home was built in 1900 and is decorated with some wonderful antiques. There was a plate of cookies in the foyer to welcome us. We managed to miss the owner when checking in, but this is not an issue for me. (I have stayed at other B&Bs where this is also the case.) So, we grabbed the room keys and headed out for the night. We booked the Bayside room that is on the second floor. The room is spacious and has a private bath with a claw foot tub. The room looks much better in person than the pictures depict. The room has a partial view of the lake, but it's partly obscured by tree foliage (I knew this when booking). The view might improve in the winter months when the leaves are not on the trees. Although it is an old home, there is the modern convenience of a ceiling fan, which I greatly appreciated. A wonderfully quiet town for sleeping; the morning came and there was no shortage of hot water for showering. Breakfast was wonderful and presented on time. An egg based dish, fresh fruits, and a bread/coffee cake. Juice, water, and coffee options. We took a nap on a Saturday afternoon while piano music wafted up the staircase, wonderfully romantic.I would definitely recommend staying here.
My daughter and I spent a delightful night at the McConnell Inn. The beautiful flowers and bench in the garden were breathtaking, with the view of Green Lake. Our room was very comfortable and well decorated. The hospitality of Mary Jo was very appreciated, including lots of special little treats and extras, which were much appreciated. She took the time to talk with us and get to know us a little, as well as sharing activities in the area. The breakfast was a nice variety and delicious. We enjoyed the swings and rockers on the front porch, which we played games on well into the night. We had a nice mother/daughter time!
We live in Ripon, but had a one night getaway for our anniversary. Mary-Jo and Scott were wonderful -- really accommodating. The house is gorgeous and the breakfast was fabulous. We will definitely make it a point to get back to this quintessential Inn very soon. Highly recommend.
Spent a Saturday night at the Inn. The room was nice and the bathroom had just been remodeled and the shower was wonderful! The Inn has been completely refurbished and it is obvious the owners have taken great pains to make sure the details have been attended to over the years.
Chose this inn because of the location. We stayed there after spending time in Oshkosh. The house has been completely renovated. The room we stayed in recently had the bathroom renovated. The ginger pancakes we had for breakfast were outstanding. Mary Jo was helpful with directions to a couple of places we wanted to visit. It was a nice place to just relax.
We were hesitant to stay at the Greenway House because we typically are not huge fans of bed and breakfasts. However, our experience at the Greenway House this past weekend has completely changed our minds on how we view BB's. This home is absolutely stunning. It sits on a huge corner lot with the lake across the street. You can see the lake through the trees. The gardens are beautiful and the awesome wrap around porch is so inviting. Our room was magnificent. A HUGE king size bed that was so comfy, the room was spotless, and it was the perfect mix of the historic charm of the old house with a modern and clean feel since everything in the house was renovated about a year ago. They provided cold water bottles, small bottles of wine, little gourmet chocolate treats waiting for us in our room with fresh baked chocolate chip cookies. The owners are the cutest, sweetest couple. You can tell they have poured their heart and soul into taking care of the house and their guests. The breakfast was fresh, organic, healthy, gourmet, and so so so delicious. One morning he served baked oatmeal with caramel, apples, and almonds. The next morning was a potato, egg, and kale hash along with blueberry crumble that they made gluten free and dairy free for me. We had breakfast both mornings while sitting outside, reading our books on the wrap around porch. Its a ten minute walk to the main part of town.... although Green Lake itself is pretty small. This place is heavenly and we will for sure be back. We can not say enough good things about this place. It is a very very beautiful and special place.
An absolutely wonderful modern day b & b....the inn keepers are delightfully warm caring people.....the entire atmosphere is inviting and the inn is beautiful inside and out...being right on the lake front is a definite asset and there is a wonderful restaurant within a 5 minute walk
I tried to click "outstanding" for each category, but it wouldn't allow me to do that. EVERY category was OUTSTANDING. My husband and I loved this place and will return again. Thank you for a great stay! Mary Kay and Bill (from St. Paul, MN)
First off, the house is absolutely beautiful! We were warmly greeted by Christina and shown around the house. She's very sweet and we had fun talking with her. We were shown to our room (Oakwood) where there were fresh flowers, freshly baked cookies, and chocolates. The bed was so comfy! Which definitely made our stay THAT much better... there was a huge smart TV, which was nice as some B&B's don't even have TVs in the rooms. There were white fluffy robes and little amenities that really make the place... like coffee stations around the house, soap dispensers in every room, and wine! The house was really pretty and nicely kept on the inside... very clean and neat compared to others we've been to. It was a classic B&B with nice contemporary touches. Breakfast was pretty delicious... we didn't leave hungry that's for sure! The innkeepers definitely made our stay... we had a fun time talking and getting to know Matt and Christina at breakfast and were very polite and helpful. We highly recommend this place! It's one of the best B&Bs we've been to
