The Honeybee Inn is a delight. We have stayed there twice in the spring and had excellent experinced both times. The Inn is clean and well appointed, Barb pays attention to the small details that make your stay extra special. The house is beautiful, Barb is warm and friendly and serves amazing breakfasts, and is available with advise and direction for places to visit and eat. Horicon Marsh is a must visit, beautiful and peaceful!

Sweet time at the Honeybee Inn Bed and Breakfast

Our Inn keeper was so kind and helpful, she made us feel right at home. The inn was beautifully decorated/restored and neat and clean. Many little touches like many current DVD's available, robes and slippers, a coffee/tea bar, homemade cookies, cold bottled water and popcorn .... just a wonderful time. Our breakfast was just delicious! I would recommend this inn to anyone looking for a lovely, relaxing getaway.

Highly recommended

The Honeybee Inn is a beautiful home and is meticulously maintained. The attention to every little detail to add to the comfort of guests is impressive. The breakfasts were wonderful and artfully served. We would be delighted to be able to go back someday.

My husband and I planned a weekend get away for our anniversary at the Honeybee B&B. We stopped at a cute little town Cedarburg first them went on to Horicon and it worked out great. Barb was a great hostess and a wonderful Cook. I asked for candles for our room and she had them waiting when we got back to our room. We also purchased the package that included the evening boat tour on the Marsh with chocolate covered strawberries and they were delicious.

An Oasis in Wisconsin

We stayed two nights in early May 2014 during a driving/birding trip from Northern Virginia to Minnesota. The inn is perfectly located for bird watching at Horicon Marsh. Since the inn is off the main road thru Horicon, it was quiet and provided just the rest and relaxation we needed after 1) a day on the road from Ohio and 2) a full day of birding at Horicon Marsh. The breakfasts were creative and delicious. Also, Barb is very knowledgeable about the area and gave us a good recommendation for supper in Mayville. The house that became the inn was built in 1902, has the original woodwork, and is one of the more spectacular B&B's we've stayed in. You won't go wrong staying here.

Greatest Weekend!

We were in the area for the Nancy's Notions weekend; however, the stay at the Honeybee was the geatest part of the weekend. It was liked being pampered everytime we walked back in as though we were the only people in the world. The food was awsome and the whole stay was most relaxing. My cousin and I are already planning next year. I'm trying to find an excuse to bring my husband back sometime during the year. This place is great and it is exactly as you see it in the pictures on the website. I hghly recommend it! Susan

Wonderful Weekend

The temps outside were below zero all weekend. Our room was warm and cozy. Breakfast was worth half the cost of our stay. Great Family business!
