Vacation Dreams

5 on August 19, 2016

We totally enjoyed our stay at the Dreams of Yesteryear B & B. It was very comfortable. Bonnie had all sorts of documentation on the original owners and how they had restored the house. We highly recommend staying at the Dreams of Yesteryear.

Wonderful Stay

4.8 on July 20, 2016

My husband and I spent 2 nights at the Dreams of Yesteryear B&B. It was a wonderful experience. The house is absolutely beautiful with Victorian furniture and furnishings. Our bedroom, the Isabella room, was quaint and charming with a very comfortable queen sized. Our hostess Bonnie was so personable and friendly. She knew the complete history of her home and shared with us the remodeling and rehabbing they did to make it the beautiful home it is today. Bonnie's cooking was absolutely wonderful. We enjoyed breakfasts that were unique and delicious. They actually held us through the entire day until dinner. And coffee was always ready at 7:00 a.m. You couldn't ask for a better hostess than Bonnie. She knows the entire area and recommended a number of great places to visit while we were there. Should we return to the Stevens Point area in the future we will definitely stay at Dreams of Yesteryear B&B.

Check in and check out were very easy with the Maher's. The room was perfect. WE really enjoyed our visits to local breweries and Father Fat's small plate restaurant.

Lovely Host and Home!

My daughter and I traveled to Steven's Point for an Admitted Student Day at UW-SP. We chose the Gareld's Room because it offered two twin beds - perfect for mother and daughter! We were greeted, warmly, by Bonnie who made a wonderful recommendation for a nearby restaurant for dinner. Our room was perfectly decorated and we slept well in the comfortable beds! The entire home was beautiful and the breakfast the next morning was delicious! Pecan-stuffed french toast with sausage, fruit, lime and banana yogurt, juice and mint tea - just wonderful! We will be back and I'll bring my husband next time! :) Thank you Bonnie!!

Innkeeper Response

Nice stay

4.0 on January 17, 2016

Very charming place. The decoration is tasteful and authentic period. We enjoyed our stay in this large B&B. It was nice and quiet and we got a lot of reading done. The hosts, Bill and Bonnie, shared interesting stories of how the place was restored and of the people who originally lived there. The breakfast was delicious. We hope to stay there once again sometime.

An Amazing Experience

5 on May 11, 2015

My sister and I stayed for a week and a half at this charming bed and breakfast. We could not possibly rate it more highly and would only stay here when in Wisconsin. The house and rooms are simply gorgeous and are scrupulously clean. Bonnie and her husband Bill are welcoming and so fun to talk to over breakfast, which is always excellent. Do yourself a favor and stay here!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you again for staying with us. After a week and half, you ladies were like family. Also, thank you again for the mementos you shared. I'll always treasure them and the time I got to spend with you. Hope you'll find a reason to come back to Stevens Point and stay with us.


Charming place for a visit

This B&B is a lovingly maintained, grand old home. The rooms are clean and the breakfast delicious. The location is also convenient yet quiet. I highly recommend.

Innkeeper Response
