Welcome to Helvetica Inn an original Swiss home from the 1800's with a charming Tea Parlor, 3 guest rooms, and indoor cycle storage. The Inn is a home-stay and sits at the threshold of New Glarus in an area often referred to as back-town. You will be within walking distance to the many New Glarus festivals, the Sugar River Bike Trail, the Historic turn of the century Swiss Village, and the many charming stores, taverns, and eateries in downtown New Glarus. Just outside the back door is an abandoned cow pasture and an old hillside dairy barn kissed by yesteryear. A quiet rural environment welcomes you as well as, a wonderful cup of tea which makes everything better. Mention BedandBreakfast and get 10% off! We also have a special for bicyclists!

Every time we have stayed at Helvetica Inn we felt like we were visiting our family homestead. Lynda is a delight to be around and New Glarus has the atmosphere that reminds us of home. Love the many bike trails, the fun taverns and restaurants. We even spent the day at the pool. Our goal is to stay in every room at the Inn including the charming little overflow room. So far we have stayed in the Hosely Room which has the best bed I have ever slept in. Lynda told us it is a Kingsdown and rather expensive and just amazingly comfortable. The room has a large private deck with a fountain and you can see many constellations. The Gerber Room is super private and cozy. When we stayed in that room it was a little cold outside and we used the electric woodstove and felt like we were in a little cabin in the woods. Another comfortable bed and we never woke up until 10 AM. Fortunately, Lynda was kind enough to still provide us with breakfast and we just love the quiche she serves. We just love this Inn and Lynda is just the sweetest person. We are looking forward to our next stay which will be the Calderon Room. Helvetica Inn is also tucked towards the back of the village but you can still walk everywhere. You are totally off the beaten track and no road noise.

Our little family stayed for two nights in this cozy house. Linda is a very friendly welcoming host, she even looked after our son one evening so that we could go out for a drink. My son loved to play with the two dogs Bode and Kelly - and we all had a very good time in a very pleasant Bed & Breakfast. Go and stay with Linda, when you're travelling through New Glarus.

Helvetica Inn is a beautiful home in a great location. Great views and fantastic innkeeper. Lynda will make you feel right at home and cooks a great breakfast! My husband and I have been there twice already, and we cannot wait to go back again.

Lynda was as a wonderful host and gave my wife and I a very peaceful escape without having to drive far from Madison. New Glarus is full of character and great biking!

Very friendly innkeeper; very tastefully decorated; bed very comfortable; extremely convenient for the services in town; Gerber suite is a good value. We would go there again.
