A Night of Tranquility!

5 on January 28, 2015

Very nice experience with a lot of comfort. Can not wait to return and enjoy the summer season.


One of Our Favortie Places

5 on January 19, 2015

Prevailing Winds Lodge is a favorite place for my husband and I to go for a getaway. We have visited 3 times and every visit seems to be better than the last. The overall ambiance is warm and welcoming. Jen and Steve are so awesome and make you feel right at home. The beds are so comfortable it feels like you are sleeping on a cloud. Breakfast is out of this world incredible. Every time we have breakfast our biggest complaint is we wish we had bigger stomachs to eat more! The eggs are fresh from their chickens and Jen and Steve are conscious of where the food comes from. I love everything about this place, and can't wait for our next stay!

Prevailing Winds Lodge is beautiful, comfortable and clean. Steve and Jen are accommodating, friendly and genuine. The breakfasts are outstanding. They are made from scratch and were enough to hold us until dinner. Steve is a top notch cook! The property and grounds are beautiful. Can't wait to go back. Debbie


Peaceful and Serene

My husband and I were privileged to recently spend a few nights at this lovely B&B. The inn is indeed lovely and well appointed. The food all homemade. They go above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable. We will be back. Joyce and Brian


Great getaway place

4.8 on October 29, 2014

Great hosts - personable but not intrusive. Fantastic breakfast - best food ever - all fresh. Decor is log cabin with a modern flair .... Very clean and very comfortable beds¿¿. We had 4 of the 5 rooms so we had the whole place to ourselves - very relaxing. The locale is secluded but very accessible. Would highly recommend it!!


Hidden gem just 30 minutes from Madison!

5 on October 23, 2014

We bid on & won a gift certificate at a charity silent auction for a one-night stay at this B&B, located about 30 minutes from us in Madison, WI. Since it didn't require a flight from us, we were always last minute in checking with them to see availability, but Steve worked with us & let us use the gift certificate two months after it's expiration in order to make sure we could have our overnight. The property itself is just beautiful; the log cabin is gorgeous & it's decorated in a very classic & comfortable way. The little touches like home-made chocolate chip cookies upon check-in, glass bottles of water to take to your room & multiple Keurig stands were much appreciated. The bed was very comfortable & we ended up buying the sheets that they use on the beds from their gift shop b/c they were the best sheets we had ever slept on. That night, we went out to eat at a local fish fry, which was fun. In the morning, the breakfast was out of this world gourmet....two courses & all home-made. The land around the B&B is beautiful & good for hiking. We will definitely recommend this property to both people from Madison looking for a little get-away as well as people from further away & out of state. Thanks so much Steve! -- Jenn K.


We Must Return!

5 on October 20, 2014

My husband and I recently spent several days in Wisconsin/Illinois to celebrate our anniversary. We stayed in 3 different B&B's, all top-rated for their specific area. PWL was clearly the winner, so much so that we’ve already booked a weekend at PWL for next October. PWL is truly a place to experience the quietness and beauty of the Wisconsin countryside, as well as the grandeur of a magnificent and tastefully-decorated log home. Its seclusion yet close proximity to Madison as well as parks and many other attractions is a plus. Jen and Steve are perfect B&B hosts – personable, professional, and sensitive to the individual needs of their guests. I can’t even begin to comment on all the small touches that added to the stay. And the treats/breakfast … wow … just wow! We recommend PWL without hesitation and look forward to our next stay!


An amazing experience!

My husband and I stumbled upon Prevailing Winds searching for a place to spend out 1st year anniversary and we couldn't have landed in a more perfect place. The breakfast was amazing and we both have food allergies that they were more than willing to accommodate for. The rooms were incredible, we could have slept for days the bed was so comfortable. The place was magical; if you want a warm, cozy and relaxing getaway with delicious food this is the place for you. Also, it's so close to Madison and other great state parks that we had so many options for activities. Our whole experience was incredible! Jamie (St. Paul, MN)


Perfect getaway in the country

5 on October 14, 2014

If you're celebrating something special or maybe a weekend with family I can't recommend Prevailing Winds Lodge BnB near Mount Horeb enough. Amazing, beautiful, warm, peaceful. My wife didn't want to leave. Steve and Jen (hosts) are so welcoming and accommodating, sharing lots of stories about the lodge, baking recipes and local knowledge. Incredible breakfast and desserts. Forget your diet. Just find a reason to go! - Jim


Amazing Lodge!

5 on October 08, 2014

Fantastic stay! We would highly recommend planning a getaway to Prevailing Winds Lodge, which is nestled in the woods in beautiful Blue Mounds, WI. The lodge and rooms were exceptionally clean. The bed in our room was AMAZING! It was fluffy and had premium linens---we almost slept through breakfast. Breakfast was scrumptious---they used local bacon and sausage and eggs from chickens that they have in a coop just outside the lodge. The property has a few well-maintained, scenic hiking trails on it. Make your reservation now! You'll be happy you did!---Sincerely, Javon, Happy Visitor.
