Nestled on four acres of aged Burr Oaks and stately Jack Pines, this intimate country inn welcomes you to life in rural Western Wisconsin. Located in Wisconsin’s Coulee Country, visitors enjoy the beauty of the hills and valleys combined with friendly, small-town atmosphere of the Whitehall area. Every season provides unique experiences for the fortunate traveler who passes our way. A bike ride or drive on the winding roads through nearby valleys, where Amish practice traditional lifestyles, will take you back through time to the 1800's. Steven and Linda invite you to experience a gentler era at the Oak Park Inn and Historic Hopkins House.

We honor a culture that time has forgotten in this Carriage House room. A quilt on the double size bed and prints of Amish children are just a sampling of thier heritage. An Amish-made doll sits waiting on the shelf for that special little girl.

Needed a local place to stay and this filled the ticket very well. If you come in the summer, enjoy the beautiful woodland grounds, but bring the mosquito spray. Very accommodating owners who can fill you in on most all of the local story.

Having travelled extensively in USA we have never stayed at a gust house, what a rest awaited us! Lovely gardens and house, warm welcome from Linda and lovely clean room with very homey feel and very clean! Gardens were lovely and we really enjoyed the rockers! Breakfast was plentiful and varied and Steve and Linda great company! As English guests we felt very welcomed and would not hesitate to recommend oak park inn or if we are lucky enough to visit Wisconsin again would head straight back! Thank you Steve and Linda you are great hosts!

Linda and Steven, We had a fabulous time staying at the OPI! My kids and grandkids loved the setting, fire pit, yards to play on, spacious suites, breakfast...I could go on and on. My Mom loved meeting you, Linda..after the Saturday night party! She had heard us talk about you after so many of our visits! OPI is truly our home away from home! Thanks for everything ! Best, Biz

An Unexpected Pleasure-We stayed two nights at the Oak Park Inn Hopkins House and were thoroughly pleased with the experience. The property and rooms were warm and welcoming, clean, and complete with everything we needed. Our hosts were the best, engaging and sincere without intruding on our time together. We were very pleased with the whole experience.

I was impressed at the very personable staff. I arrived on one of the coldest days of the year, and the desk clerk turned the heat up for me because I was arriving late. Very clean and comfortable. I will stay at the Oak Park Inn anytime I am in the area.

If you're planning a stay in this neck of the woods, you won't regret a stay at the Oak Park Inn. It boasts clean, beautifully decorated rooms with comfortable beds. You'll enjoy a delicious breakfast accompanied by great conversation with the owners, who will be happy to tell you all about the area and as it's history. It is obvious that Linda and Steve have put their heart into making their guests feel welcome. We've enjoyed several stays here and wouldn't stay anywhere else when in the area!
