Great place to stay in Watertown, charming house with lots of history. It was only 5 minutes away from the Wedding venue.

Excellent place to spend the night

We have stayed at the Jesse Stone House three times now and each one has been very nice. The rooms are comfortable and the breakfast delicious.

Average but affordable

This was a quaint B&B in Watertown, WI. This home had much character, charm, and centrally located. The room was dusty, but the bed was very comfortable. Things on my wish list for this place: 1. A TV for each room (an older TV in the main sitting area was available). 2. More insulation in the walls...I could hear the conversation in the other room -- clearly. Their snoring and other things were like I was in their room. This made me feel uncomfortable and revealed very little privacy. The breakfast was excellent!

Excellent Choice

On a whim we decided to stay in Watertown and found Jesse Stone B & B. We could not have been more pleased with our choice. the rooms and the history that Chuck shared with us was incredible! I highly recommend anyone to stay in this lovely home. Pat was busy babysitting and we look forward to meeting her the next time we stay!!Ken & Ellen Leasure

Four of us stayed at Jesse Stone House B&B recently, and loved every minute of it. We had a parlor between our rooms to sit and visit, watch TV play games or just veg. The Catholic Church was nearby as were good restaurants. This is a beautiful historic mansion and we would recommend it highly to anyone. We particularly enjoyed the player piano listening to Pennyslyvania Polka and Phantom of the Opera! The food was the best and we were treated like queens!

Great house

We came to Watertown for the memorial for my wife's late mother. It was a difficult time and we were under a considerable amount of stress with the service and with packing up her father to move. The Jessie Stone House was a wonderful escape from the responsibilities of the week. We enjoyed our room and the modern private bath. It was quiet. The proprietors were incredibly friendly and understanding. Breakfast was always ready at the instant we came downstairs. The meals were varied and beautifully prepared. The portions were generous and very filling. We highly recommend Jessie Stone house and will go out of our way to visit there again. With no family left in the area, our trips to Watertown will be limited but we would go the extra miles to stay there. Thanks very much!

Return to Watertown.

My wife and I were out to visit some friends that I had not seen in about 30 years, when I graduated high school.. The Jesse Stone House was so much more enjoyable than staying at a hotel chain. The house was immaculate with so many interesting antiques. The Damaske's were great host and the breakfast was outstanding. We were very pleased to have found the Jesse Stone House. We plan on making a yearly pilgrimage to Watertown and definitely plan on staying at the Jesse Stone House when we do.

we had a very memeorable time at jesse stone. The home was interesting, and the antiques lovely. The owner even played the player piano for us. The breakfast was gourmet. We invited a guest for breakfast and they were welcomed by the owners.
