This Victorian farmhouse, located in western WI was once the focal point of a 518 acre horse farm, owned by a lumber baron. A century ago trotters circled the oval tracks at Oaklawn Stock Farm. Today, stay and be enveloped by the quiet comforts of another time. We provide the amenities, including wi-fi, refreshments and accommodation for special diets, to make your visit with us effortless. Come for business, UW-Stout, family, biking the Red Cedar Trail or a show at the Mabel Tainter Center for the Arts. Enjoy the peaceful screened porch, birds, walking paths, the stillness of a brilliant sunset and the warmth and hospitality that is the true character of such a grand old house.

Great Place to Stay

5 on November 16, 2014

I was traveling to Menomonie on business and stayed at the Oaklawn Inn. It was a great place to stay! Very quiet, delicious breakfast, fast and reliable wifi, comfortable accomodations, very clean, and tastefully decorated. Maggie, the Innkeeper was wonderful! She was friendly, made us a healthy and tasty breakfast every morning and was very accommodating on a few special requests. The house is beautiful. Great location for travels to Menomonie. I would definitely stay here again.

A Fun Place to Stay

5 on June 24, 2014

Stayed at the Oaklawn Inn in June. Were in Menominie for a wedding party. Maggie and the inn were great. Food at breakfast was varied and delicious. Our room was large, the bed comfortable, and the AC worked great. This was important since the weather was warm for this time of year. We enjoyed visiting with Maggie, who was full of information, about local activities, and good cheer. The Oaklawn Inn is big, but warmly decorated and we felt at home the minute we entered. We highly recommend a stay here if you're in the area.

Best of the places I have stayed in Menomonie

I have stayed in the Menomonie area many times and Oaklawn is at the top of the list for my next visit. Not sure why I never stayed there before this! Lovely setting, great breakfasts, Maggie is incredibly knowledgeable and helpful about the attractions of the area. My favorite thing was sitting on the screened-in porch at night with a cocktail.

Very accommodating and comfortable

4.8 on February 11, 2014

I was traveling for business to Menomonie for 3 nights and did not want to stay in a 2 to 3 star hotel. Google searches lead me to Oaklawn. After viewing the web site and initial contact with Maggie, I told our cooperate travel agent that Oaklawn was where I wanted to stay. Maggie matched the room rates to any local hotels. What a beautiful, comfortable home. One of my comments to Maggie was that prior to my visit I had never been called by any Hilton property (which is where I usually stay) to discuss what I wanted for breakfast, what could be done to make my stay more pleasant as well as local restaurants and activities. The home cooked breakfasts were fabulous. The accommodations were very comfortable and relaxing. My next trip to the Menomonie area I will be staying at Oaklawn.

Inviting Inn

5 on September 25, 2013

We celebrated a friend's birthday in fine style thanks to the help of Maggie the owner of the Oaklawn Inn. Prior to our arrival she made several suggestions for massages, lunch and dinner spots and things to do in general. The inn was comfortable and homey. The breakfast was great. We were treated like very special guests.

Charming Victorian Bnb

5 on August 13, 2013

My family enjoyed staying here very much! Maggie was very welcoming, and the two connected rooms worked very well for our family of five. We also appreciated how accommodating she was about the breakfast menu -- our two boys have mild autism and have a restricted diet while the rest of us enjoyed her fancier homemade fare. I am working on a travel guide for historic lodging and I appreciated the time Maggie took to tell me about the history of this unique place. Sitting for an afternoon on the big porch felt like traveling back in time. It was wonderful! I heartily recommend this place for families, couples, and anyone wanting a charming bnb experience.

Business retreat

A small professional meeting was made special when out-of-town members stayed at Oaklawn Inn. Breakfast was delightful, and took into consideration dietary needs. Informal discussions on the porch in the rain were a highlight of the meeting.

Lovely Stay

I had such a lovely experience at Oaklawn Inn. The rooms were well appointed and comfortable and so clean, and the porch was even better. We spent a morning meeting in the rain on the covered and screened porch looking out over the trees and lawn. Very peaceful and productive at the same time. Mostly, I appreciate Maggie's attention to the food. I have a fair number of restrictions that aren't always easy to work with, and she contacted me in advance and then prepared a delicious and fresh breakfast that was perfect for me.

Going Back in Time

We stayed one night in early spring and were delighted with the historic home where you can imagine all that must have transpired there over the last 100 years. Maggie has renovated and decorated so it is charming without being stuffy. Comfortable bed, wonderful food, gracious and friendly hostess. We loved the walking trails, screen porch, and bird songs.

An Oasis in Menomonie

4.2 on April 24, 2013

Oaklawn Inn is a lovely, stately building built in the late 1800's. The rooms are very comfortable and the common areas are large and relaxing. The highlight of this B&B is the large, enclosed porch with a view to the grounds and wonderful sunsets. The owner is a gracious and knowledgeable hostess who makes a great breakfast. You cannot go wrong with this accomodation.
