Stevens Point Gem

5 on October 02, 2017

Our son is a UWSP student and instead of a hotel while visiting this weekend, we chose to stay here. What a delightful host couple and the accommodations were fantastic. Such a Victorian charm and the breakfast was delicious. We will be staying here the next times we visit and we highly recommend.

Innkeeper Response
I appreciate your kind review and am so happy you enjoyed your stay. I always like when parents of our university students stay with us. By the time their son/daughter graduate, we've become great friends. Looking forward to your next stay.

This B&B is a great choice for a stay in Steven's Point. Close to downtown and the Green Circle Trail. Food was tasty and sufficient/substantial.

Beautiful and romantic

Bonnie and Bill were great hosts and spent sometime chatting with us over breakfast. We really enjoyed the strawberry stuffed french toast! We found our room to be comfortable and have everything we needed. Bonnie was gracious about us arriving late. We will be back.

It was a wonderful dream

Dream of Yesteryear in Stevens Point Wi was the most beautiful home we have stayed in. The antiques were exquisite. The rooms very comfortable. It was exceptionally clean and Bonnie, the hostess, made us feel right at home. The breakfast was delicious. We would recommend this B&B to everyone. A most enjoyable experience.

We had a wonderful stay. Excellent breakfast! Our floor had its own thermostat, which was a pleasant surprise in a Victorian! We both highly recommend staying here. Our expectations were exceeded in every way. We plan to visit Steven Point again and we would stay nowhere else!! Great location too! Walking/Biking distance to the Green Circle trail and Point Brewery.

Stevens Point's Hidden Gem

5 on June 21, 2017

I had a presentation near Stevens Point. I had planned on camping, but my wife decided to come with. The weekend stay was one of the Best B&B I have stayed at. Bonnie was flexible with check-in time. The room was exquisite and plush. Every inch of the place is clean and decorated. I felt like I stepped back in time. There was quite a thunderstorm while we were there. The room was very quiet. The morning sun slowly wakes you up in the morning. The showers were hot. The breakfast was amazing. The hosts entertained with enjoyable banter. I highly recommend sitting on the porch with coffee before breakfast.

Innkeeper Response
What a wonderful review. Thank you so very much. It was a real pleasure having you stay at our bed and breakfast. Hope you'll come again--maybe for the next Midwest Renewable Energy Fair.

Victorian...and Chic, Too

5 on May 30, 2017

"Dreams" is a wonderful place filled with Victorian décor. Not far away, though,are chic art galleries, some in a beautiful park along the Wisconsin River. Add to all that the graciousness and cooking skills of Bonnie, the owner, and its 5 stars!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for staying with us and taking time to write a review. We love our guests and I enjoyed cooking for you. Hope you'll come back.

Fall Family Visit

Six adult family members visited Stevens Point for a weekend in early October. DOY was clean, quiet, and very conveniently located. The Mahers were excellent and gracious hosts.

Innkeeper Response
