Great Stay!

4.8 on August 27, 2015

We had a nice stay at the Rochester Inn. The room was clean and it was a lot more "homey" and comfortable than a traditional hotel. The breakfast in our room was on time and wonderful. We enjoyed a few of the chocolate chip cookies from the cookie jar in lobby too! Staff was informative and very friendly. Highly recommend this place!


Sheboygan Falls Getaway

4.4 on November 15, 2014

We loved the charm and service and delicious breakfasts. The Rochester Inn is in a historic district along a rushing river. Kohler is just minutes away for food and entertainment and Sheboygan, a little further, has a few outstanding restaurants and great museum. The only disappointment was that there were no toiletries except a bar of soap and I had to go to a pharmacy to buy those items.


Wonderful stay at the The Rochester Inn, A Historic Hotel

The building is amazing and we stayed in a great suite with a living room on the lower floor and the bedroom on the higher floor. It was really comfortable. The owner if very friendly and accommodating. It was a wonderful stay. Moreover Sheboygan Falls is a pretty little town and you can go out for a walk. We will come back. Thank you very much!

Our Favorite B&B

We have stayed at the Rochester Inn several times and have always left feeling relaxed and ready to face the challenges of everyday life! The two story suites with double whirlpool baths have brought us back again and again! The bountiful breakfast brought to the room each morning is a wonderful way to start each dayof your stay. We highly recommend the Rochester Inn for a romantic weekend away!


Absolutely Perfect!

The Rochester Inn and Sheboygan Falls is the perfect getaway. Jackie is so warm and welcoming and so helpful in planning your stay and things to do in the area. The rooms are lovely. It was so peaceful and quiet. Our breakfast was delicious and we enjoyed chatting with Jackie and exploring the town, as well as, several of the area golf courses.


Great alternative to Kohler hotels

4.6 on July 26, 2012

We were booking a weekend in Kohler and the rooms at the American Club were very pricey and the Inn on Woodlake was booked. I looked around the web and found the Rochester Inn on this site and based on the reviews we booked it. I like staying near downtowns/walkable neighborhoods so this was the perfect fit. It is just across the river from the Sheboygan Falls downtown area. Making the reservation was a breeze. They even accomodated our Saturday-only stay as I agreed to be flexible in what room we got. When we arrived they were very friendly and informative - gave us some tips on where to eat, etc. The room was incredible. The photos don't do them justice. They are large, comfortable, and tastefully decorated. They were also very clean. Its the kind of room you feel like you should just hang out in. The breakfast was really good. We had some eggs with cream cheese, tasty bacon, and lots of fresh fruit and some OJ. My only complaint is the coffee. It was just food-service grade stuff. Not horrible but an Inn of this quality should be serving some better stuff like Alterra or Stone Creek. I know Torke is located in Sheboygan, but their coffee isn't good. That is just nitpicking anyways. Everything else was awesome. Anytime we return to this area, we will stay here.


great

Step back in time . . .

One step into this B&B and you will feel like you have traveled back in time with luxuries of modern times. Very clean room with huge deep soaking Kohler whirlpool tub in the bathroom. The sink is outside the bathroom bringing back memories of a time when people used bowls and pitchers for washing. The 2 story suite has a beautiful triangular window. Four post bed and electric candlelight lighting fixtures add a nice touch. Staff is super nice and very accommodating.


Can't wait to go back!

We have been going to the Inn for over 12 years. This time, we were celebrating out 20th anniversary. Jacci, the Inn-keeper, contacted us in advance to confirm and to let us know we could check in early and offered to upgrade us if a room was available on check in. We viewed two of the other rooms, but decided to stay with our favorite #6. The room is very quiet, tastefully decorated and clean! We always have had an excellent stay and are always treated to a wonderful breakfast in the morning, served right our room. This is a great value and a must try for anyone looking for a romantic getaway. We can't wait to go back!
