Our Mini Wisconsin Dells Getaway

5 on July 26, 2016

Our stay was wonderful! My husband and I were looking for a mini getaway at the Dells. I found Parkview B&B online and noticed that the rates were so much better than staying at a hotel in the Dells. Parkview B&B is also only a 20 minute drive from the Dells so I decided to make a reservation and I'm so glad I did. Our stay was relaxing because we weren't in the hustle and bustle of everything but still close enough to all the fun. Lorraine and Neil were wonderful hosts as they were friendly and hospitable. Lorraine asked if we had dietary restrictions and I mentioned that we are vegetarian so she planned a delicious breakfast around that. We truly enjoyed meeting Bentley, their miniature poodle. He was adorable! We will definitely stay again next time we want to visit the Dells! Thank you again Lorraine, Neil, and Bentley!


Great Hospitality

Best B&B I have ever visited

5 on July 13, 2016

We rented 2 rooms at Parkside in July 2016. The Innkeepers, Lorraine and Neil, just purchased the property and made our stay memorable. Not only were they hospitable, they went out of their way to make us feel at home. I felt like I was visiting my sister for the weekend. The Inn was spotless and the decorations were perfect for such an old home. Lorraine cooks up a mean breakfast! They were knowledgeable about the area and offered up suggestions on where to go for dinner or sightseeing. I highly recommend you visit Parkview B&B and experience a weekend with Lorraine and Neil!


Parkview terrific stay

A wonderful B&B with great hosts. Tom & Donna were friendly and helpful but not overly so. Just right. Terrific house and lovely bedrooms. Very comfortable. Donna's breakfast was outstanding. We had reservations for a Taliesen tour the next day and it was only a short, lovely half hour drive. Quite handy.


Cozy, welcoming and exceptional breakfasts.

A clean, well decorated and restored older building just off the main street of Reedsburg. The breakfasts were tasty creations made from scratch with beautiful presentation. The owners were happy to join in the lively conversation with new and returning guests.


Lovely space, friendly innkeepers, delicious food

Our room was a tad small, although not the owners fault.I had booked another room but someone else wanted it and we conceded since we weren't there to sit in our room. Breakfast was delicious and hosts kind and helpful.


Great value

Our stay was over the Memorial Day holiday this year. We enjoyed the Seifert Room (sp?) during our two night stay. To start at the beginning...it's been many years since my last B&B stay and this particular weekend I had the privilege of introducing a close friend to the pleasures of a B&B. We arrived in the early side of the published check in times and were greeted by Donna the Innkeeper. We were shown the room, given the specifics and asked about any dietary restrictions. We had the rest of the day to explore the room and the surrounding area. We spent time in the local area and Spring Green. Our first breakfast was nothing less than magical. Donna is the epitome of the perfect innkeeper and served us the absolutely most perfect delicious breakfast we've ever experienced. Crustless quiche, fruit compote, potatoes perfectly prepared. Oh my. The second day was as perfect as the first. Local exploration, a perfect breakfast hosted by Donna and Tom, who by the way, are both excellent conversationalists. The room was very comfortable, with great linens, great mattress. There was a TV with DVD and cable service for the local news and what not. We had a private bath which was perfectly suited to our needs. Oh, and the coffee and zucchini bread was awesome!!! Sorry. Needed to mention that. To sum up. Highly recommended. Such a bargain and in such a great location. Book now!
