Chris and I have relatives in Birchwood, and have always enjoyed Mary Lou's hospitality when we stay! Her place is very relaxing, warm, tidy, and her other guests tend to be charming company at breakfast. Her place is in Downtown Birchwood WI, and is about 45 - 50 minutes by car from Spooner and Hayward WI, which have good antiquing and art studios for shopping. It is also convenient to Lake Chetak, and the resorts in that area. All of the rooms have a unique charm to them - and her breakfasts are some of the best in town. We highly recommend staying with Mary Lou, and feel it's the best place in Birchwood WI to stay!
My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary with a three night stay at the Cobblestone over the Memorial Day weekend. Every part of our experience exceeded our expectations. Mary Lou is such a warm and caring person. She is an awesome cook and our breakfasts were deliciously amazing! Our room and the common rooms are decorated beautifully and are immaculately clean. We stayed in the English Garden Suite and it served as our own private retreat for a weekend of relaxation and renewal. Mary Lou even had an antique wooden puzzle available which we enjoyed putting together. Mary Lou and the Cobblestone provided the perfect getaway weekend for us. We will be back! Dale & Jillian Beaty
What a fabulous find in the north woods! Everything was wonderful! Breakfast was better than we've had at 4 star restaurants. Our room was clean and very comfortable. Highly recommend staying here. We'd love to return.
My Husband and I along with another couple did a road trip to Birchwood for one evening. Our stay was very enjoyable and beautiful B&B. Mary Lou was so nice and welcoming during our stay. The breakfast was fabulous and I learned a new recipe for baked yummy whole apples.
My wife is very particular when it comes to where she stays. She was very satisfied with the whole place. It was relaxing, friendly, and very clean. Thank you for making our first stay in a B&B so pleasant. We will recommend it to everyone.
I needed some time away for my self. I felt very safe and well taken care of here. I would recommend this place to all. The rooms were very clean . The sheets and pillows were awesome. The breakfast was very tasty. They also have a wonderful gift shop out back that has many nice things. I will return .
We had an outstanding stay with Mary Lou at the Cobblestone. The house was warm and quaint, breakfast was fantastic and the conversation kept us from leaving on time. I would definitely recommend to anyone. Chris & Andrea De Pere, WI
This is our 2nd time to stay here. Our first time was in the Bear's Den in winter and this past weekend the English Garden Suite this spring (2015). It's been over 7 years since our last visit.The service of Mary Lou along with London & Paris are the main reason for our return along with the charm of the home. She really keeps the place very clean and the detail of her work through out the home shows. Lots of TLC this B & B has. We enjoyed an evening to relax and had one of the best night sleeps in a long time. It was very nice to have breakfast ready. Plenty of food and tasty. We live in the Twin Cities, MN and spend a share amount of time in northern WI - camping. However, for my birthday and Mother's Day month I really wanted to return back. So glad my husband and daughter were with me. It was a very stress free time. Look forward to another future visit. A great gem in the north country!
We stayed for two nights & so glad we did! Mary Lou is the perfect host, asking us what we wanted for breakfast. We forgot our camera...I called her & she will be returning it the next time she is in the twin cities of Minneapolis/St. Paul. How nice for me!
We happened upon this place while searching for lodging near Hayward, and we were very pleased with our experience. We had our 6 month old with us, and it worked out where we had the entire lower level to ourselves, which was wonderful. Lovely staff, cozy rooms, delicious food. We were very refreshed by our stay. I would highly recommend Cobblestone Bed & Breakfast!
The Cobblestone was the closest place we could get reservations for our trip to view the Ice Formations in and about the Sea Caves at the Apostle Islands National Park. Turned out to be a perfect location. Only a slight detour from the route we'd have otherwise taken to get there, and close enough to the park to get there, take in the caves as well as Madeline Island, and get back to the Cobblestone in a single day. Mary Lou has turned this house into a comfortable B&B, with great decor. The breakfast was fabulous.
The best 2 days away from home I have had in a long time. The host only complimented the already great atmosphere of the Cobblrstone B & B. In this peaceful setting I had the best sleep in a while. The food and conversation was warming to the soul....Thanks for a wonderful time Marylou!
Cobblestone Bed and Breakfast is one of the nicest places that my husband Clint and I have ever stayed. We began coming here several years ago and it has become our little home away from home here in Birchwood Wisconsin. We travel up here at least 5 times a summer. Mary lou is always accomidating and we've never had a bad nights stay. It's always fun to meet and talk to the different guests. Finding out where they are from and what brings them to Birchwood. The value is excellent. Where else can you get a wonderful comfortable bed AND a delicious breakfast for around 100.00 a couple? The housse is decorated for each season. We have stayed in the lower lodge and that is our favorite spot by far. It has it's own little kitchen and living room. We've brought friends with us to stay and it's like having your own little cabin in the woods. Very private. My favorite bed by far is the French Quarters. As soon as my head hits the pillow I'm off to dreamland!! Then of course there is Paris and London the two cats who remember us and run to greet us as soon as we walk in the door. All together a FIVE Star with EXTRA Stars Experience! Love ya Cobblestone! ----The BOOKERS....
The Cobblestone is an amazing find for Northwest WI! A cozy quiet guesthouse, with an amazing host! We needed some rest and relaxation, and found the Cobblestone to be just that. From the peaceful front porch, to the comfortable room, and the delicious breakfast. Mary's attention to detail in decorating and making people feel at home is outstanding. This is the place to stay!
My husband and I spent one night in the English Garden Suite and it was an amazing visit. We were so welcomed, we instantly felt at home. During our stay, we were able to relax and enjoy the amenities in the room. We literally felt like we were on our own little island together, while forgetting about the world outside. The breakfast and coffee in the morning were a delightful start to the day and we were comfortably full. Thanks for being a wonderful hostess; we hope to come back!
My Prince Charming and I had a delightful overnight for our fifth anniversary at the Cobblestone. Our room was done up most charmingly in a Chinese theme. The amazing feature was the huge metal soaking tub, a work of art by itself and deliciously roomy. Prince Charming and I lolled for quite some time. Breakfast was yummy good and there was lots of it.
Came up to the area I gew up in for the weekend. I am a wedding photographer and was shooting the wedding of a friend. Of course there are really no hotels in this area and I have always wanted to stay at a B&B. We ahve 2 kids ages 5 and 2. I was a bit leary bringing them with, but they LOVED it! A did we. The place is beautiful! We were upgraded to the whole basement area with 2 bedrooms at no charge. Our kids loved the firepace and christmas tree. THe beds were comfortable. Breakfast was GREAT! amazing blueberry pancakes, sausage, bacon, fruit, and smoothies. Great coffee too! (were coffee people). My kids loved just relaxing int he living room in the morning playing games and hanging out with Mary Lou! (you are so welcoming). We are hoping to go up again soon!!!!! Very recommended :)
My husband and I wanted to spend a weekend of snowshoeing on the Ice Age Trail this Feb 2011. We stayed in the Bear Den and was perfect for us to have the lower area to ourselves. Mary Lou is an excellent host and made us feel at home. She keeps the B & B in perfect condition and having Paris & London - they are the most charming cats around! Mary Lou makes a great breakfast you won't want to miss. We travel in the area often and will visit again! Keep up the great work Mary Lou!
My husband and I stayed at Mary Lou's marvelous bed and breakfast on our wedding night in August-- we drove an hour and a half, and it was absolutely worth it! We stayed for two wonderful nights and spend most of our time at the house. Mary Lou found an old romantic board game and loaned it to us, and we chose some old black and white movies from her collection. We stayed in Love at First Sight, and the bed was very comfortable, the decorations well-chosen, and the copper tub absolutely beautiful. It fit two, a bit cozily. Breakfast. was. INCREDIBLE. Miss Mary Lou can most certainly cook! We stayed at two other excellent B&Bs on our honeymoon, and neither could match Mary Lou's cuisine. We really enjoyed the family setting and the atmosphere of the whole house... and the big porch and porch swing were comfortable and relaxing. Thank you for a great first two nights together as husband and wife!!
A miraculous approximately 100-year-old house with all delicacies one can wish. Cleanly and with dear equipped rooms. Mary Lou the owner a nice and obliging person. The very well put together breakfast leaves open no wishes.
We really enjoyed staying in the beautiful Spring Suite. The entire house was charming and historic. The breakfast was wonderful and the hostess went above and beyond to make sure we had a great experience.
Wonderful and unique accomodations. Very relaxing, tastefully decorated with a warm and friendly atmosphere. Our sincere thanks to Mary our wonderful host for being so attentive. The rooms were so exquisite, and the breakfast was extraordinary. The gift shop adds a very nice touch. We have stayed twice and already have planned a return trip this fall. I highly recommend Cobblestone Bed and Breakfast if you are looking for a quiet retreat from the city, away from a busy schedule. It is a most truly relaxing experience!
We come to Birchwood once a month each summer but what a pleasent surprise to find this wonderful spot! We had a WONDERFUL time and the bed felt like heaven at the end of a long night. This is our new spot to stay when we are in Birchwood!
