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.
Thank you for your recommendation. I appreciate for your comments about photos, new photos will be on our web site by the end of this year, I would love your feedback. We hope you will return soon.

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!
How fun it was for us to host your mother/daughter get-a-way, thank you for choosing McConnell Inn for this special time.
