This 1892 Victorian is nestled in the charming town of Manawa, Wisconsin. Eclectic mixes of furnishings old and new are represented in each room. Several of our rooms have hand crafted Queen Size beds, which Tim built. Out in the backyard, numerous examples of nature’s beauty grace our gardens. And if the time is right, a black raspberry treat can be found. Seating choices abound from rocking yourself to sleep on the front porch to remote quiet locations amongst the trees and flowers. The sixteen-room Queen Anne Victorian home designed by W.W. DeLong was built for Wisconsin lumberman Arthur Lindsay, president of the Little Wolf Lumber Company and Lindsay Light & Power. Our home has been upgraded with creature comforts we all covet. Each of our rooms have their own bathroom for your convenience. WIFI is available throughout the house. Business travelers will appreciate the availability of a quiet place to work, and television in each room. A coffee bar is located right outside your door for your convenience. The Lindsay House is a great opportunity for your team to get out of the city for meetings and retreats. The innkeepers, Judy and Tim Trull were married in the Last Frontier of Alaska, while serving in the United States Air Force, Fire Department. They are the proud parents of daughter Morgan, who is a massage therapist. It has been Judy’s dream to run a Bed and Breakfast and her dream was realized in December 2004… and she loves it!

We aways enjoy our stay

Visiting the Lindsay House B&B is like "going home again" (because it is). We enjoy the well-appointed rooms, the spacious bathrooms, and of course the exquisitely prepared breakfast. Thank you again, Judy, Tim and Morgan, for another pleasant visit. Sara Lindsay Rath & Del Lamont

Feels like home away from home!

5 on April 29, 2013

The Lindsay House is very clean and comfortable. The first time we stayed we felt right at home by Judy, Tim and Morgan's warm and friendly personalities. The decor is so fitting for the era of the house. The house is clean and the little personal touch amenities are so wonderful. The treats set out in the evening are always delicious and the breakfast is outstanding. Every time we stay we meet people at breakfast who are wonderful and interesting to talk with. It always feels like we're with friends! I highly recommend and always look forward to our next stay.

Had a great stay

My S.O. and I really enjoyed our stay at the Lindsay House--breakfast was delicious, homemade, and not too heavy, & we enjoyed walking around the town, though there isn't much going on around there this time of year. The room was clean and nicely decorated and felt well taken care of. Overall a great stay, would definitely consider coming back again for another wknd.

15th Anniversay Getaway!

5 on July 08, 2011

This was our first stay at a B&B and we had a very warm welcome from Judy and Tim, when we got to our room there was a bottle of chilled wine ready for us to celebrate our anniversary. They went above and beyond to make our stay wonderful. GREAT gourmet breakfast and always had very pleasing snacks and deserts. We will definitely go back again. Thanks for everything Judy and Tim!

Excellent inn with all the touches!

5 on July 04, 2011

We reserved 2 rooms at the Lindsay House B&B this past weekend, and it exceeded our expectations in every area. The owners, Judy and Tim, accomodated us in every way including adding a roll-away bed for us to allow for a 3rd guest in 1 room. We were treated to homemade brownies and cookies, a variety of teas and coffees, and an amazing breakfast (they even made special accomodations for a few of us to allow for a vegetarian of the breakfast menu). There are special touches like Mary Kay products and fluffy robes in the rooms, and we were able to have breakfast at a time of our choosing. Judy and Tim went above and beyond to make our stay special and memorable. The services and extra touches provided made the Lindsay House one of the nicest B&B's that we have stayed at, and made our trip to Manawa a memorable one!

Sweet Little B&B in the Middle of Wisconsin

4.4 on June 02, 2011

My boyfriend and I were traveling through the middle of Wisconsin and needed a place to stay one evening. We called in the morning and were able to get a room that evening. Tim was great host and the B&B was clean and comfortable. The town of Manawa did not offer a lot in terms of entertainment or dining, but the B&B was a nice little gem to stumble upon. Breakfast was fresh and tasty. I would definitely recommend this B&B to other couples.

Great stay in Manawa

Called the night before to make a reservation, Tim, the owner was great and left the door open for us even though he was not around when we arrived. A great sleep and a good breakfast.
