Loved, loved, loved our stay at the Hamilton House in Whitewater Wis. Beautiful home, romantic room, delicious food, wonderful hostess. Thank you Kathleen!

Wonderful Experience

5 on November 21, 2012

We have stayed at the Hamilton House twice now, and can't wait to make our next reservation. Our son is attending UWW, and when looking for accomodations, we stumbled upon the Hamilton House. Are we ever thankful that we did! Kathleen is a wonderful hostess, and makes you feel right at home. The common areas are comfortable, rooms are all stunning, and location is fabulous (within walking distance to dining). Can't wait to visit again in the spring!

Review of Hamilton House B&B, Whitewater, WI

5 on October 23, 2012

They accommodated our late arrival. This really helped us in our planning to attend the homecoming events we wanted to attend. The room was nicely appointed and very comfortable. The fire place was a nice touch after the coming back from being our on the town. Sunday morning breakfast was filling and not over done. The other guests were great to talk with and many great stories were told about the house and memories of past times at UW-Whitewater. Thanks for a great stay.

Wonderful stays at Hamilton House

The rooms are absolutely lovely, clean, and well-provisioned. The location is great--right downtown with parking. Kathleen and Jim are great people who do their best to meet your every need. I have stayed here 8 nights altogether and have another 2 planned next month. I feel like I've arrived "home" each time. Kathleen's homemade breakfasts are fantastic!

I had little expectations of the Hamilton Bed & Breakfast. I was thrilled with the accomadations. Our host Kathy was warm, friendly and informative. The Hamilton was beautiful, beds comfortable and very clean! We would certainly stay there again.

A Wonderful Place to Stay!

We had an amazing time staying at the Hamilton House. It is a beautiful house! The bed and sheets were very comfortable and we loved the jacuzzi in the room. Our innkeeper made sure to make us feel very comfortable and willing to answer any questions we had. The drinks and snacks provided were very much enjoyed! Breakfast was delicious-especially the scones! It is definitely a place I would return to and recommend to others.
