This was our first Bed and Breakfast experience and we couldn't be any happier! David and Nancy were very helpful and made us feel very welcomed. The Bowman Garden Cottage was absolutely beautiful. The bed was extremely comfortable and the sheets were like silk. The cottage was tucked away in the back of the property, surrounded by trees; which made it extremely peaceful. We loved it and will be sending all our family and friends!!

Lovely B&B

3.6 on July 22, 2014

We travelled with our kids and stayed in one of the cabins and in the airstreamer. It was only for one night, but a great stay and we would have extended if there had been openings. Great for going into Wisconsin dells and day trips to Madison. NB We didn't have dinner, but I had to score it to make my review :-/

Great Stay!

Wonderful Weekend!

We brought two other couples to the Dells to stay at Bowman's and enjoy the area's golf courses. We all had a lovely time and those who came for the first time couldn't stop marveling at the accommodations, meals and hosts. Our thanks to Nancy and David for making this a memorable weekend with friends! Susan and Bob Blakely

Oak Hill Bed and Breakfast Is Top-Notch

5 on June 21, 2014

I highly recommend Bowman's Oak Hill Bed & Breakfast to anyone who wants to have a wonderful and restful stay while visiting in the Wisconsin Dells area. Dave and Nancy make you feel welcomed and at-home. I especially recommend booking one of the two cottages on the property. The traveler has their own little space away from the main building and the sense of privacy is something to treasure. Great hosts and a great property!

Stayed in the Argosy

5 on June 14, 2014

John and I had a wonderful stay with the Bowman's. The Argosy was an awesome experience and the outdoor tubs were so relaxing. Our breakfast the next morning was beyond delicious; it felt like we were visiting friends instead of guests at accommodations. We will definitely return!

Great honeymoon getaway!

4.8 on June 14, 2014

We stayed 4 nights at Bowman's Oak Hill B&B. It was a relaxing, secluded private cabin with an awesome corner whirlpool tub (necessary after a long day of kayaking on the river). Breakfast was amazing and there was a good variety of healthy, delicious breakfast foods, though our favorite was the lemon meringue sauce for french toast! The Bowman's themselves provided excellent care and great conversation, and were a nice local resource happy to answer any questions or offer advice. Our only "complaint", if you will, was that the price was a little outside our budget, but we're glad we splurged because it was definitely worth it! Would stay there again if we go back to the Dells area.

Fantastic Getaway for Adults without Children

4.8 on May 29, 2014

Nancy and Dave are personable and on the ball -- our expectations were exceeded in every way at this quiet getaway near the Dells. My boyfriend and I stayed in the cottage at the end of the garden path. It was secluded and nestled near a wooded area. The cottage was impeccably clean and nicely decorated. Nancy and Dave gave us wonderful advice on where to dine, etc at the Dells. Also must give praise to Nancy's excellent breakfasts, feasts that started our mornings.

Road Trip 2014

David and Nancy met me when I arrived, had tea available for me and suggested a place for dinner. The location was great - peaceful. Enjoyed the company of the hosts for breakfast and had a tour of the other rooms. I will definitely stay here again and will recommend to family. Thinking it would be a great sisters weekend location.
