Pleasant weekend interlude

4.8 on November 30, 2015

Spent a Saturday night at the Inn. The room was nice and the bathroom had just been remodeled and the shower was wonderful! The Inn has been completely refurbished and it is obvious the owners have taken great pains to make sure the details have been attended to over the years.

Pleasant Interlude

Chose this inn because of the location. We stayed there after spending time in Oshkosh. The house has been completely renovated. The room we stayed in recently had the bathroom renovated. The ginger pancakes we had for breakfast were outstanding. Mary Jo was helpful with directions to a couple of places we wanted to visit. It was a nice place to just relax.

Wonderful stay

I tried to click "outstanding" for each category, but it wouldn't allow me to do that. EVERY category was OUTSTANDING. My husband and I loved this place and will return again. Thank you for a great stay! Mary Kay and Bill (from St. Paul, MN)

Great experience all around

The McConnell Inn was welcoming and comforting even though it was the off-season in the area. The room was spacious, clean and had a great view of the lake. Thank you for everything!

We would stay here again!

The McConnell Inn is a charming B&B, located just yards from Green Lake. We were the only ones staying there, so it was nice and quiet! The breakfast was excellent and more than we could eat. We had some difficulty getting the WiFi to work in our room, but the owners' son tried to assist us. Seems you need to be close to the router for it to work properly, which we didn't expect. We stayed in the middle of the week in March, so there wasn't alot to do in Green Lake at that time of year. But, we can really see where McConnell Inn would be located in a terrific place to enjoy the area in the warmer months!

This is a unique recipe that uses cottage cheese in the batter. Most guests cannot discern the cheeese in the pancake, but with the fresh grated apples, it makes for a hearty breakfast.
