Felt right at home

The new owner Patty is friendly and gracious, the beds were comfortable, the breakfast was outstanding we felt like right at home. We love craftsman homes and the short walk to shopping makes this a great place to stay. I would recommend staying here and intend to soon.


A great stay!

It was a great first experience with a B&B...comfortable bed...good breakfast...Great hosts! It was easy to make ourservles at home. Only minor complaint is I did not get a response to a phone call when I had a quick question prior to our arrival. However, we would definitely recommend to others.

This was not the ideal time to visit McGregor as some of the businesses were closed for a shorter season. Our innkeeper was very nice and the stay was comfortable. This is a very good value also. I would stay here again if I'm every in McGregor overnight.


Just like home!

Our stay at the Lamp Post Inn was most pleasant. My husband and I really enjoyed our stay in the beautiful 100 year old house. The bed and room were really comfortable. Also the hostess was very pleasant and the breakfast was really delicious. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home with us on our trip to Wisconsin. We would definately return next year on our summer trip.
