Hidden Serenity Bed and Breakfast is a spacious two-story home nestled in the woods on the edge of the Northern Kettle Moraine State Forest. Guests can look forward to luxury rooms, gourmet breakfasts and gracious hosts in a peaceful setting convenient to both nature at its best and the offerings of city life. We offer 24 acres of on site trails for hiking/snowshoeing and wildlife viewing, lighted tennis court, billiards, a front porch and back deck with a relaxing view of the forest and wildlife. Built in 1997 as a private residence, the owners used some of the trees from their forest for most of the finishing wood in the house –floors, molding, etc. The home features four luxury guest rooms each with its own private custom bathroom, as well as two story windows in the great room-great for wildlife viewing. Some special features of the home include reclaimed fireplace mantles in each guest room, energy-efficient LED lighting throughout, tastefully hidden TVs, reclaimed chandeliers, and free Wi-Fi. Close your eyes and imagine the contentment of a warm scrumptious breakfast, the awe of the production of nature, the sensuousness of getting to know each other better, the invigorating feeling of a brisk hike, the relaxation of peaceful and quiet surroundings. Book now and experience Hidden Serenity Bed and Breakfast.

We'll definitely be back!

5 on January 23, 2015

We had such a great time! Chris and Sally were such gracious hosts. They were fun to get to know and made a terrific, hearty breakfast for us to start our day. We loved the attention to detail in our room...from the mini fridge of bottled water to the lights under the bed. Very cool! They offer tons of things to do; we wish we had more time to enjoy exploring outdoors. We had a blast at the Wildlife Sanctuary across the street. Great recommendation to visit! My husband wanted to try other B&B's when we go back to the area; but, since our stay, he is convinced we need to get a group together to rent out the house! We'll definitely be back!!! Kari and Ben

Very nice B&B

This is the first time we have ever stayed at a Bed & Breakfast and we chose the right one! You couldn't ask for better hosts, food and location! The house is very unique & homey and the rooms are very comfortable. Chris and Sally make you feel like long lost friends the instant you get there! We will definitely be coming back!

Wonderful Stay!

Sally and Chris were very accommodating, friendly, and attentive. We were impressed. Property is absolutely wonderful and the atmosphere and room were extremely relaxing and comfortable. It was the perfect stay during the races at Road America for us!
