Fantastic Stay!

5 on June 25, 2017

We had a wonderful stay at Bowman's. Russ and Laurie are so kind and accommodating. The breakfast is absolutely fantastic! You will not find a better one anywhere in the area. We also loved the peace and quiet, especially throughout the night and early mornings. Our room was great. The beds are really nice and comfortable. Russ and Laurie suggested great activities and places to see and eat. They even packed us a breakfast when we had to leave at 5:30 am on the final day (thanks for the pumpkin muffins...we ate them all on the long flight!). We will definitely stay here again if we come back to the area. Thanks so much!

Lovely cottage, wish we could have stayed longer!

5 on June 25, 2017

We stayed in a gorgeous cottage but due to time restrictions we were only able to stay for 1 night, which was a shame as we would have liked to have stayed longer. Our hosts were extremely friendly and helpful and prepared us a lovely breakfast before our flight home. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to others who don't want to stay right in town but just minutes outside. We also loved watching the array of birds that flew in and out of the garden to the feeders.

Best B&B experience

5 on May 07, 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bowman's Oak Hill Bed and Breakfast. The hosts were friendly and attentive, room was comfortable, food was incredible. We would definitely stay here again any time.

Dell's Area B&S

4.4 on May 06, 2017

We visited last month for our Wedding Anniversary. The owner's are so friendly and attentive. The breakfast's are amazing! I'm gluten free and have not had French Toast in years, until this visit, they made gluten free and it was the same as my husbands, not something else, or different and it was sooo good! We stayed in one of the cottage's and it was so cozy and clean! They even stopped over to wish us Happy Anniversary and gave us a perfect red rose & vase. We loved it and would go back again and again!

Innkeeper Response

Another GREAT visit

5 on September 28, 2016

Our second stay for the second year. Our event runs from very early to very late. We have yet to be able to experience the highly touted breakfast. However, the treats and snacks left behind for us were AMAZING. Dave and Nancy remembered us from last year making our stay even more inviting. Truly amazing hosts. They make you feel warm and welcome. Try finding that at a Dells resort.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for this special review! It is always a pleasure to welcome returning guests!!! You make what we do here very easy. It was wonderful to see the two of you again and see you were doing so well!! So happy you could come again this year!

- David and Nancy (innkeeper)

Excellent stay at a great B&B

4.8 on September 25, 2016

Dave and Nancy were wonderful hosts. They wanted to ensure our stay was perfect. Our cabin was a great place to relax with a very short walk to the house for a tasty breakfast. On our last day, we needed to get on the road early so Nancy made us fresh, hot breakfast sandwiches to take with us. What a nice touch!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your kind review! It was nice to get to know you! We enjoy being able to send our early check outs on the road with something that can easily be managed in the car. Hope to have you stay again when you are in the dells area.

Bowman's Outstanding Service

5 on September 11, 2016

Flawlessly presented, great food and even better fellowship. The best stay we have ever had, anywhere!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your outstanding review! Know that we will be looking forward to having you return for another visit! You are right about the fellowship, visiting with you and other guests is one of our favorite parts about living our dream to own a B&B. We were blessed to have you with us!

- David and Nancy (innkeeper)

Lovely getaway

4.8 on August 25, 2016

The room was charming, food phenomenal, and our hosts were gracious and helpful with lots of useful advice about the area for dining and travelling. Not really a place for kids, but would highly recommend it for travelling adults.

Innkeeper Response
We are happy to know your experience with us was a pleasant one, especially since we noticed you almost never stay at B&B's! We really appreciate you taking the time to write a review!! Even though we welcome children in the cottages we are not really set up for meeting children's needs at large. We have no pool or play ground. Also to preserve the adult experience for guests who have come away from their children for a romantic getaway we serve breakfast to families in their space or on the covered dining deck, weather permitting.

- David and Nancy (innkeeper)

Best getaway I've ever experienced

5 on August 21, 2016

It was my first stay at a bed and breakfast. I felt welcomed, the room was outstanding, the breakfast was as good as any I've had in some time, and the decor reminded me of my youth which was very pleasing for me. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting a respite from the world as we know it....

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking time to review your first B&B experience! It pleases us to know you enjoyed your stay enough to recommend us to other potential guests!! It is always our goal to spoil our guests so as they will want to continue to use B&B's as their first choice when they travel!

- Nancy and David (innkeeper)

Anniversary get-away

4.2 on August 12, 2016

Our stay was wonderful. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, we felt welcome and valued as customers and friends. David was knowledgeable about all the Dells has to offer. Nancy's meals were exquisite. The grounds were well-kept and beautiful. We stayed in the Argosy for two nights. We had everything we needed to make a yummy "dinner-in" one night, and we enjoyed soaking in the antique claw-foot tubs. We definitely felt that we were on vacation, and we will be sure to stay at Bowman's Oak Hill Bed and Breakfast again!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for reviewing your stay in the Argosy Adventure! We are pleased to know you took full advantage of all this totally unique and fun accommodation has to offer! We will certainly be looking forward to having you return for another stay!

- David and Nancy (innkeeper)

Best getaway I've ever experienced

5 on August 10, 2016

“After the stress of work all week, all I was looking for was someplace to get away and relax. The Bowman's tgraciously accepted Rochelle and me into their bed and breakfast and we had a wonderful experience from check in to the homemade breakfast each morning, the coffee on the front porch, the deck out back overlooking some beautiful woods, the extremely comfortable bed and pillows, and the fellow guests sharing breakfast, it was worth it and we plan on returning in the future...”

Innkeeper Response
We are so pleased that you found our Bed and Breakfast relaxing! Sounds like it was just what the Doctor ordered, so to speak! This property seems to have that calming effect on people. We are happy to be able to share it with you!!! Looking forward to having you return for another visit!!

- David and Nancy (innkeeper)

Very pleasant stay

5 on August 10, 2016

We just stayed last weekend and had a wonderful time. The hospitality was far and above. A great location and so relaxing. This is truly a down home B & B would recommend it to anyone. David and Nancy are wonderful host and a Godly couple.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind review! We do truly love what we do here. It is a wonderful new adventure every day! We feel blessed to have been able to live our dream of innkeeping on this beautiful property.

- David and Nancy (innkeeper)

The best B&B experience ever!!!!

5 on August 02, 2016

It was my 2nd experience to stay at this lovely place, Everyone was perfect. Nancy and David are the best owners, and their house is extremely clean and comfortable. The breakfast was awesome!!!! Love it so much. Strongly recommend it to everyone.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you! I'm thinking you are some of the best guests ever! We love having our guests return for another stay!

One night stay

2 lovely nights in the Airstream Argosy

5 on July 14, 2016

I surprised my husband with a birthday getaway to the WI Dells and I wanted a different style of accommodation and was happy to find this B&B had a renovated Airstream Argosy. Besides the cool, vintage Airstream (which is wonderful), they have built a private deck around the vehicle and there are 2 outdoor claw foot tubs in a cabana where you can relax. My husband loved the surprise and it was fun staying in the Airstream. Nice that it had air conditioning because there were some hot summer nights in July. Breakfast in the main house was delicious and our fellow guests were very nice to chat with. This place is a short 5 minute drive to the Dells so you get the quiet of the outdoors with the convenience of being close to the Dells. Thanks for a great stay!

Innkeeper Response
We are just taking time to catch up on responding to reviews and saw your glowing review of your stay in the Argosy! Thank you so much! We are always pleased to know that unique accommodation was a hit with our guests!

- Nancy and David (innkeepers)

Excellent place; ridiculously nice owners

4.4 on July 08, 2016

Excellent place; ridiculously nice owners. Didn't know the breakfast schedule in advance and some of the foods were a little out there. Everything else was wonderful.

Innkeeper Response
Hi there, can't say we have ever been called " ridiculously nice" before! LOL Thank you! Sorry we caught you off guard with our original out of the ordinary breakfast menus. Just can't seem to bring myself to everyday food. Thanks for taking time to write a review. Sorry it took me so long to respond. It has been crazy busy. Hope you come again!

- Nancy and David (innkeepers)

Wonderful hosts.

4.2 on July 07, 2016

Innkeeper Response
Happy to know you enjoyed the Argosy Adventure!

- Nancy (innkeeper)

great place to stay

4.8 on July 06, 2016

My husband and I had a very nice weekend at the Bowman's Oak Hill B&B. our room was just right and comfortable seating as well as a comfortable bed. The breakfasts were excellent... For the same price as a hotel room, we had great breakfasts and a nice shaded deck to enjoy some time outside. We will definite stay there again if we are in the area.

First Time's a Charm

4.6 on June 30, 2016

Stayed in Gracie's Garden Room in the Main House with my husband for a "babymoon". It was our first time staying at a B&B so we didn't know exactly what to expect other than from all of the other positive reviews for this place, that it was going to be great. It was. Nancy greeted us on our arrival -- so pleasant and friendly. The room was very clean and spacious enough for a few nights' stay. Whirlpool was relaxing and the bed was comfy! We enjoyed playing cards in the sun room after returning at night. Just wish the time didn't go so quickly while we were there. Would have loved to explore the property a little more.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your lovely review! Sorry it took so long to respond. Summer is a bit crazy around here. I bet you have had your new baby by now! Hope the adjustments are going well for you all. We look forward to seeing you again some time!

- Nancy and David (innkeepers)

Excellent, Excellent, Excellent

5 on June 16, 2016

This was my 4th visit at this B&B and everytime is better than the previous one. The owners Nancy & David make you feel right at home and are the greatest hosts. If you have a chance to visit do so as it's terrific!

Innkeeper Response
We were so pleased to have you return for your 4th visit! It is like having a loving family member coming to visit. You absolutely light up the house with your joyful spirit! Thank you for giving us the ultimate compliment by returning and bringing your friends with you!

- Nancy and David (innkeeper)

The Bowmans are wonderful.

4.8 on June 15, 2016

We stayed for three nights on our honeymoon and couldn't be more pleased. We enjoyed our experience in the Argosy. We also enjoyed all our conversations with the Bowmans they were great to talk with, full of wisdom and experiences. It will be at the top of our list next stay in the Dells! Jackson & Becca

Innkeeper Response
It was an absolute pleasure to have the two of you with us. We will be looking forward to seeing you again your next trip to the dells! We are so happy you enjoyed the Argosy Adventure!

Birthday weekend

3.6 on June 13, 2016

My boyfriend and I stayed for 2 nights. It was a cute little B&B. Nancy and David were very nice and accommodating. Breakfast was AMAZING! Wish there would have been more to do at the B&B, but overall a wonderful experience!

Innkeeper Response
We are so pleased that you chose our property for your first B&B stay! And that you enjoyed your experience. The peaceful setting with time on the covered swing, board games, TV, movies or a rowdy game of horse shoes, star filled sky's, occasional wild life watching and spending time together are our big attractions here! We loved having you with us for your birthdays! Hoping to see you again sometime.

- Nancy (innkeeper)

Perfect first B&B stay

4.6 on May 25, 2016

This was our first time at a bed and breakfast and we will absolutely return! David and Nancy were so great. The rooms were so cute and the out door space is so peaceful. Nancy's breakfast can't be beat. Only minutes from downtown as well!

Innkeeper Response
It ia always a pleasure to have first time B&B Guests! We are pleased that you enjoyed the experience here! We will be looking forward to your next visit!! Thank you for pointing out how close to town our quiet retreat is.

Cozy Get-away Cabin

5 on May 20, 2016

After the hustle and bustle of the city, we enjoyed the solitude of our private cabin located just minutes away from The Dells attractions. The owners were friendly and helpful, and breakfast was great. If we find ourselves in the area again, we know who to call!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you! You must have been some of our first guests of the season! It is great to be back greeting guests and sharing our property with them. We are pleased that you enjoyed the Cottage Room you booked with us. We will look forward to your call the next time you need a peaceful weekend away!

- Nancy (innkeeper)

A hidden gem

4.8 on October 24, 2015

We stayed in the garden cottage. A warm, relaxing, quiet get away hidden on the edge of town. David and Nancy were very friendly and helpful with our stay. Even though our schedule did not allow us to try any of the breakfasts, we were surprised and delighted with the treats they left for us. They both went out of their way to make us feel comfortable during our stay. Definately booking again for next year!!!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your stay with us! We appreciate your kind words and are happy your stay was comfortable! We will be looking forward to seeing you again on your return visit next year! Have a blessed and safe winter.

- Nancy (innkeeper)

Great place to stay!

4.8 on September 01, 2015

David and Nancy are very gracious hosts! We felt very welcome and comfortable. The food was fabulous! They make you feel like family, and we didn't want to leave.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind review of our B&B! We really appreciate the time you took to do this for us. It is always an honor to share our home and lives with the guests who come through our door. Hope to see you again!

One Of the Best!

5 on August 12, 2015

We have visited about 20 Bed and breakfasts in the Midwest and this is one of the best.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking time to write a review! We are honored to be on your "best" in the Mid West list!

- Nancy Bowman (innkeeper)

Our Stay Was PERFECT!

5 on June 03, 2015

This was our first time at a Bed & Breakfast, and WOW David & Nancy really set the bar high! We were blown away by the service, the AMAZING cabin we stayed in, the DELICIOUS food, and most of all, the great company and conversations with them in the morning! We couldn't have asked for a better way to celebrate our first anniversary! We will DEFINITELY be back!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your very nice review! We are so pleased they you had a great 1st anniversary celebration here and we will be looking forward to your return visit!

Perfect Getaway

5 on February 05, 2015

We stayed here in the Garden Cottage back in the summer of 2011 while my husband was on R&R. It was the perfect little weekend getaway to relax and enjoy our time together! The cottage was cozy and cute and breakfast in the morning was delicious! Nancy and David Bowman are friendly, wonderful hosts and they make you feel like you're right at home! Now that we finally moved back to WI we are already making plans to come back this summer for another weekend away!

Innkeeper Response
What a delight to receive your review today from your 2011 stay with us! We will be looking forward to your return visit in the summer. We are not available for phone reservations right now however you may book your stay anytime you have decided on your preferred dates, through our web site at

- David and Nancy Bowman (innkeeper)

Very enjoyable stay

5 on November 07, 2014

The cottage was very cozy and romantic.

Innkeeper Response
Hi there! I was going over some reviews and notices I had not thanked you for taking time to do a review for us! Yikes that was almost 2 years ago! Shame on me!

- Nancy (innkeeper)

Great for a girls weekend

4.8 on October 30, 2014

The three of us had a wonderful stay in Geraldine's room. Food was excellent.

Innkeeper Response
Sorry I missed this from almost a couple of years ago! Thank you for taking time to do a review of your girls weekend! We will be open this year (2016) through October 30th. Is it time to come again?

Our First B&B

5 on October 27, 2014

We were very pleased with our stay and would recommend this place to anyone! Having never stayed at a B&B before we were a little nervous about what our role would be. But our hosts were so welcoming and friendly, it was easy to relax. Thank you so much for making our stay so nice!

Innkeeper Response
You are so welcome! It was our pleasure to have you with us as first time B&B guests. Thank you for choosing to stay with us. We are pleased you felt relaxed. Looking forward to seeing you another time! We are running a special in May of two paid nights and a third consecutive night FREE ! (Excluding Memorial Day weekend) be sure to enter Free night" in the special needs section of your reservation.

- David and Nancy Bowman (innkeeper)


5 on October 11, 2014

Nancy and David go Above and Beyond for their guests. The grounds are breathtaking, the rooms are sublime, the breakfasts are "To Die For," and when there are other guests, they make everyone feel so comfortable that meal turns into a joyful party. With their knowledge of the area, they make excellent suggestions on places to eat, entertainment, and sights not to miss. And after an eventful and sometimes tiring day, in the dells, what a pleasure to return to this quiet secluded oasis of peace and tranquility.

The Quiet Side of Wisconsin Dells

4.0 on September 10, 2014

Breakfast is delicious and conversation interesting around the dining table at this bed and breakfast where Dave and Nancy serve as hosts and travel consultants, providing information and recommendations for activities and restaurants in the area.

Great Stay

5 on September 07, 2014

We spent 2 nights at this comfy b & b. This was the most spotless place we have ever stayed in! Hosts were very friendly and breakfast spectacular! Great value, quiet, relaxing atmosphere. Would stay again!

Perfect for our 10 yr anniversary

5 on September 03, 2014

Bowman's Oak Hill Bed and Breakfast was a fantastic experience all around. The location is perfect. It feels like you are away from everything, but only minutes away from main attractions. Nancy's breakfast is literally award winning. Enough can't be said about how this was such a great part of our anniversary weekend. Highly recommend to everyone.

Best B&B we've ever stayed at.

5 on August 29, 2014

What we experienced during our stay was exactly as their website advertised. Our cottage was wonderfully comfortable and well situated on the property for privacy. The bed was VERY comfortable (slept all week as well there as in our own bed). The leather couch was also very comfortable. The breakfasts were fabulously delicious every day! David and Nancy were very nice, but not intrusive and well informed about the area attractions and eateries. The Cottage, main house (dining area) and grounds were all very well maintained and beautifully decorated. We would highly recommend choosing this B&B. We have stayed at a lot of B&B all over the Midwest and this one has been the best by far then all of the others.

Best place for Couples in the Dells

4.8 on August 23, 2014

We weren't traveling with children so we wanted a quiet place to stay. We had Aunt Geri's cabin and it was perfect. The breakfasts were amazing. We will definitely return.

weekend to remember!

4.4 on August 16, 2014

This was our first experience at a B & B, and we greatly enjoyed it! We met some wonderful people during our stay. Will definitely do it again.


5 on August 11, 2014

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!

4.6 on July 09, 2014

Great B&B getaway!


5 on July 09, 2014

great place to stay very relaxing environment

Wonderful Weekend!

5 on June 29, 2014

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

5 on May 29, 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.

Close but not too close to the downtown area

4.6 on May 21, 2014

A little slice of peace and solitude just a few short minutes from downtown Wisconsin Dells. We celebrated our 10 year anniversary here and loved Gracie's Garden Room and the marvelous whirlpool tub. Breakfast was excellent and the hospitality was perfect. Would recommend to anyone. Had a great time!

First B & B

5 on May 13, 2014

Jim and Brenda were great ! They were very friendly and treated us like family. Who could ask for a better experience when trying something new !!!! Dick & Lorna

I didn't want to leave!

4.4 on April 09, 2014

The inn-keepers were super friendly and helpful. The breakfast that was served was better than any place around. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice getaway/vacation!

Weekend Getaway

4.6 on March 16, 2014

This was the 3rd. time we have stayed at Bowman's Oak Hill Bed & Breakfast and everything was outstanding as usual, with the exception of one thing. While we were there over the weekend, we received an inch or two of snow and were surprised that at no time during our stay (Friday night thru Sunday morning) did the person managing the Bed & Breakfast for Dave & Nancy shovel the walkways or driveway. The walkways to the cabins and up to the back of the house were snow covered and slippery. It was not the service we have come to expect. Otherwise the food was excellent and the rooms were spotless.

Great B&B

4.8 on March 10, 2014

Great hosts and amazing breakfast. Really enjoyed my stay

Winter getaway

5 on March 06, 2014

This was the first time in a bed and breakfast for us. Totally enjoyed it. The rooms were so very nicely kept up. The innkeepers were so friendly. Would come back here in a heart beat. What a great first experience for us in a bed and breakfast. Hope to return next winter again for a short getaway. Dennis and Kay

Wonderful little getaway

5 on March 04, 2014

This wonderful property provided such a great getaway from all the hustle and bustle of life. The cottages are perfect for a romantic weekend away. Breakfast was simply amazing! There was variety of food and enough for a little morning snack as well. It was neat to see wildlife outside our window. We will definitely be returning in the future.

Great stay

5 on January 28, 2014

Food was excellent and the rooms were great. Near everything in the Dells, but off in its own secluded area. Quiet during the night and plenty of wildlife to see as well. Would definitely stay again.

Great B&B In the Dells

4.4 on January 23, 2014

Had a great stay; the innkeepers were nice, rooms were clean & a little vintage, they had a lot of food for breakfast (although the quality was only OK). Very close to downtown (although not walkable) and to snowshoing and other activies.

Nice / Friendly and Good B&B

4.2 on January 22, 2014

We stayed for 2 nights and had a warm welcome. The B&B is nicely located and offers a good breakfast and comfortable environment

Perfect little cabin getaway

4.6 on January 04, 2014

Really enjoyed our stay at Bowman's Oak Hill. We stayed in Aunt Geri's cottage which was exactly that we were looking for during our stay in the Dells - a cozy and secluded little cabin getaway. Extremely clean and well maintained. I don't know how much this feature matters to other people but I absolutely LOVED the heated bathroom tiles. They make a huge difference when it's below freezing outside. The hosts, Brenda and Jim are great people and very hospitable. They were even kind enough to pack us a picnic basket with our breakfast every morning so we could enjoy it in the cabin. High recommend this place especially if you're looking to escape the often gaudy resorts found in the Dells. Would definitely come back again!

Anniversary stay

4.6 on December 04, 2013

My husband and I stayed for our tenth anniversary and had a wonderful time! The cottages are so warm and cozy, and the couple running it are wonderful! We would definitely stay here again!

Nice respite near Dells

3.4 on December 03, 2013

A good choice if you peace & quiet while still close to the Dells frenzy. Very private, clean & comfy stay in Garden Cottage - liked that we could control the heat output of the electric FP, though prefer gas for ambiance. Very tasty & ample breakfast, delivered to our door! Very nice glassware & utensils much appreciated! In summer the porch would be a great addition to a restful stay here.

Bowman's Oak Hill

4.8 on October 23, 2013

When we first drove in, we saw a deer in the front yard. The driveway from the road to the house was very nice and let us know that we would not be bothered by any road noise or traffic during our stay. Nancy and David were wonderful right from the start. They were very welcoming and accommodating. Upon arriving to our room, we found it spotless. Everything was in great working order. Breakfasts were amazing both for the quality and taste of the food as well as the company we shared, both the Bowman's and the other guests. The grounds were maintained in great condition. I would not hesitate to stay at Bowman's Oak Hill again.

Very clean and contained all the amenities

4.2 on October 22, 2013

We were in the garden cottage - it included a nice porch and was somewhat secluded from the other accommodations. Good hiking in the area

September 2013

4.8 on October 07, 2013

We liked it very much, the owners are very friendly, the rooms were very clean, comfortable and beautiful. The breakfast was excellent. We strongly recommend it.

I would recommend this B & B to anyone. It was very good!

4.8 on September 23, 2013

Very friendly, clean and beautiful.

In a word: Perfect!

What a fantastic weekend in the Wisconsin Dells - all made possible by David and Nancy and Bowman's Oak Hill B&B! We are seasoned B&B'ers and were quite impressed by the property and service offered. The grounds were beautiful, the room meticulously maintained and the guest services were outstanding. The breakfasts prepared by the hosts were worth the stay alone! And the comaraderie and story-swapping in the morning were lovely. And this being our first family vacation (travelling with a 3 month old) we appreciated the care and concern taken to accommodate us. David even offered to hold our wee one while we ate and he did so with aplomb - definitely the sign of a seasoned, proud grandpa himself. If we find ourselves back in The Dells, we will 100% stay at this inn again. We are already recommending it to all of our friends! Thank you! Jennifer Hoover, Chicago

We stayed in the Argosy trailer and it was awesome! David and Nancy are the nicest people we have ever met and the breakfast was fabulous!

Quiet Get Away

A nice clean private getaway

nice b&b near the dells

4.6 on September 03, 2013

this was a nice b&b, with beautifully decorated room, very friendly owners and great breakfast... i would recommend it

Anniversary stay

4.8 on September 02, 2013

We stayed at Bowman's for 3 days in August for our 25th anniversary.

Pleasant surprise

5 on September 02, 2013

I was making last minute plans and was so lucky to find the Bowmans. From the relaxing atmosphere to the excellent meals and service I could not have asked for anything more.

Never stay anywhere else

5 on August 28, 2013

This is by far the nicest most comfortable bed and breakfast, relaxing, personal touches, breakfast all outstanding, I can't say enough good things, simply the best. \ Mike Schulz


5 on August 24, 2013

My husband & I had never stayed at a B&B before, and we stayed here for our 'mini honeymoon' and it was fantastic! They had a romantic cabin we stayed in that was better than any hotel I've ever been in. Nancy & David are extremely nice and the breakfast was divine! Oak Hill is barely a 3 minute drive to downtown Dells and for a 3 night stay it was cheaper than 1 night at the Kalahari or Great Wolf Lodge! I don't think I'll be staying any where else but Oak Hill for my future Dells Trips :)

Repeat stay just as fantastic!

5 on August 14, 2013

This was our second stay at this magnificient B&B. This time we stayed in the Argosy which was awesome! We highly recommend this little slice of heaven. The breakfasts were outstanding. Many kudos to the owners, David & Nancy, you can just feel the love they put into this place.


5 on August 13, 2013

We had the best experience ever! An absolute must to go here!

I would definitely recommend this place

4.6 on August 13, 2013

We had a very lovely time. The bed and breakfast was clean, comfortable and felt like home. The breakfast was the best food I have ever had for a breakfast meal and I am still dreaming about Nancy's cinnamon rolls and pancakes with her "special sauce." The service was top notch and Dave and Nancy were there to see to every need that we might have had. It was a beautifully decorated home with a great location that puts you close enough to the Wisconsin Dells tourist area without having to deal with the noise that invariably comes with it. I slept like a baby all three nights of our stay with the windows open. My only issue that I could think of was that there are no televisions in any of the rooms in the main house. That being said, I would absolutely without a doubt recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone who would like a great value (compared to the majority of the big name hotels in the area), personal touches and the feeling of staying with family rather than at a business. This place was fantastic!

Perfect B&B experience

5 on August 11, 2013

Wonderful room in a peaceful setting just 3 minutes from downtown Dells. Nancy and David are superb hosts. Nancy's breakfasts were delicious works of art and the breakfast conversations with other guests were very enjoyable. We enjoyed relaxing away from the hustle and bustle. Highly recommend!!

Our first Stay in Wisconsin Dells

4.6 on August 10, 2013

We had a very enjoyable stay with Nancy and David in their lovely home, and were made to feel very welcome . We were given good advice about the local attractions and enjoyed our chats over breakfast with the other guests.

beautiful & welcoming

4.8 on August 04, 2013

Wonderful hosts Beautiful property Delicious breakfasts Home away from home

The best place to stay in the Dells area

4.6 on July 30, 2013

If your looking for a little privacy this is the place to stay. We just stayed there July 21st and 22nd for my boyfriends birthday and we couldn't of been more pleased. The grounds were well maintained and the Garden Cottage had everything you needed and was very clean. We will definetly be back. Very close to everything. We did not get to meet the owners this time as they were on vacation, however, Kathy who they had taking care of the place was the nicest lady we had ever met and did an excellent job at making us feel at home and making a wonderful breakfast. Thank you for all your hard work-This was by far better than a hotel

Bowman's Oak Hill B&B

5 on July 25, 2013

My husband and i enjoyed our stay so very much. Cabin was just gorgeous and the scenry of the grounds just beautiful. We look forward to another visit in the future. Our highly apprasing thanks to the staff who were so very helpful with our stay.

Romantic getway

4.8 on July 17, 2013

Always a wonderful place to stay. We are repeat stayers and the whole experience is why. Warm hospiital care takers in Dave in Nanacy always make you feel welcome.

Great Experience

4.6 on July 12, 2013

Charming place in rural Wisconsin,,,quiet and cozy with the added plus of two people, Nancy and David, who obviously take great pride in their B&B. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a place to get away from the "real world".

If you want the best in the Dells...

5 on July 11, 2013

My husband and I had the pleasure of spending 4 nights at the Bowman’s Oak Hill B&B last month. As a former travel agent, I look for a nice, clean and hospitable inn for us while on vacation. And we were not disappointed…this B&B was special. David and Nancy were wonderful hosts; making sure that we had all that we needed and even helped us with our itinerary since this was our first time in Wisconsin and the Dells. With their suggestions, we had plenty of activities and had a wonderful time in the Dells! The B&B is just 5 minutes from all of the ‘action’ but sits back away from the road in a beautiful wooded area. It was the perfect place at the end of a long day to sit and relax, visit or just enjoy the quiet. We stayed in Elmer’s Oak View Room and it was beautiful. It was spacious with a nice large bathroom. The breakfasts were enormous and delicious. Nancy does it right when she prepares a meal! She was also very concerned about my food allergies and discussed what she was preparing to serve the next morning so I wouldn't have any complications...she was so accommodating! We both enjoyed many conversations with David and Nancy and felt like we were coming home at the end of the day. There is a reason why this B&B is noted as being the Wisconsin Dells best!


5 on July 11, 2013

COULD NOT HAVE BEEN BETTER!!! This was our 2nd time to visit Bowman's Oak Hill B&B. It is an AMAZING place! The owners are so friendly and hospitable, and the rooms are inviting and comfortable. Everything is incredibly crisp and clean! And the breakfasts are DELICIOUS! We LOVED our time here and plan to return as soon as possible. Thank you, Nancy and David, for another lovely stay!!!

Gem in the Dells

5 on July 10, 2013

Hosts were wonderful and we loved our 2 nights there. Rooms are beautiful and exceptionally clean. Can't wait to go back!

Beautiful place and wonderful innkeepers

5 on June 30, 2013

This is a lovely house with beautifully done rooms, it was quiet and pleasant to stay in. We had a jacuzzi and wifi and rather enjoyed that there was no TV. The grounds are lovely - close enough to the towns in the Dells to participate in any/all activities but far enough away from the crazy to be quiet and comfortable. The innkeepers are very hospitable and friendly and easy to talk to - just a wonderful experience and we wish we could have stayed longer.

Weekend Adventure

4.6 on June 27, 2013

The bed was very comfortable, the room was very clean and inviting, the grounds are BEAUTIFUL and made for a lot of bird watching opportunities that I took advantage of, and the breakfast on both mornings that we were there was excellent. I did not leave the table hungry at all. The owners are wonderful people who made sure that we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. I absolutely loved it here here and plan to visit again!

Beautiful and Relaxing

5 on June 26, 2013

My husband and I stayed in the Garden Cottage to celebrate our second wedding anniversary. The garden cottage was absolutely beautiful, private, and relaxing. Nancy and David are wonderful people and you can tell they love their B&B. The food was excellent, overall this is a wonderful place to stay. We plan on visiting again sometime and I would recommend this B&B to anyone.

Great Stay!

4.6 on June 24, 2013

Enjoyed our stay! Dave & Nancy do a great job of extending their warm welcome & hospitality. If in the Dells, this is a great option to consider for lodging! Great facility, wonderful food, very relaxing.

great B& B

5 on June 20, 2013

great experience. highly recommend to others. definitely would stay there again

Argosy stay

5 on June 19, 2013

My wife and I stayed for two nights in the Argosy for her 40th birthday and it was great. The outdoor soak tubs on the deck were amazing. Can't wait to return to enjoy the Argosy again at a later date. Definitely a must stay if you like camping and the outdoors with all the comforts of home. Totally awesome. Thanks.

Great stay and hospitality!

5 on May 31, 2013

The rooms are beautiful though I would suggest staying in a cabin if available. It was like a home away from home. Awesome breakfast and nice location. Truly get the feeling of being in the Dells. We hope to go back again.

"Quiet, relaxing retreat"

4.6 on May 27, 2013

This B&B was everything we expected and more. Loved Aunt Geri's cabin - beautifully decorated and exactly as pictured on the internet. The setting was a welcome quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of the Dells, The Bowman's were a joy to visit with and very accommodating. We awoke to birds serenading us, wonderfully rested, and topped it off with a delicious breakfast. Definitely plan to return to this spot when visiting the Dells again. Than you! Jean and Randy - Illinois

Absolutely Wonderful!

5 on May 21, 2013

We stayed here for our first anniversary. David and Nancy are extremely friendly and hospitable, and the food was amazing!!

Perfect Bed and Breakfast

5 on May 15, 2013

My husband and I went here for our babymoon and had an amazing time. The room we stayed in Gracie's Room was perfect with a great whirlpool tub that was very relaxing. David and Nancy were wonderful hosts with great recommendations for locate cuisine and entertainment. They were really friendly and interested in getting to know their guests. Their breakfasts were amazing. Some of the best food I have eaten. It was a highlight to our stay. Nancy made everything from scratch and had portions that would fill you up for most of the day. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast for a relaxing and enjoyable weekend.


4.6 on May 05, 2013

My wife & I had a Wonderful anniversary it was very peaceful time. the food & service was AWESOME

Way better than staying in a chain hotel!

4.2 on May 05, 2013

Nice place, nice folks. Great food, clean rooms. Free wifi, but filtered to block "undesirable" sites. No cell phone coverage.

A winner!

4.2 on May 02, 2013

We have stayed here twice in the past several months and would highly recommend it to anyone. Very relaxing atmosphere, pretty grounds, extremely clean and attractive rooms, great food, friendly and accommodating hosts.

Our second stay!!

5 on April 25, 2013

This was our second stay at this B&B to celebrate another anniversary. From the moment we checked in til we packed up and waved goodbye, we were made to feel welcome and appreciated. We chose a different cottage and were just as pleased as we were on our first visit. The bathroom floor is heated and we seriously giggled each time we set foot in there. The breakfast was not pretentious or common. Just plain good food with flair. You will not be disappointed. We certainly will be going back . Darnell & Heather

Excellent Romantic Getaway

5 on April 17, 2013

Bowman's Oak Hill B & B was the perfect setting for a romantic getaway. We stayed in a separate cabin so that we had total privacy. The cabin was immaculate with a king size bed, hot tub and a little kitchenette complete with flatware, coffeemaker and teapot. Breakfasts were wonderful--delicious and healthy. I am taking away a couple of recipes. Our hosts were so friendly and helpful and we had many nice conversations around the breakfast table.

Great Stay for a great value

4.6 on April 10, 2013

We stayed here on our anniversary weekend getaway. The room met my expectations and compared to other rooms for B&B's we have stayed at. Service wise was above and beyond. We did the water park package and they called for us to make sure they were accepting the passes the day we were looking to go. Outstanding value, delicious breakfast. Would stay here again if needing a place to stay in the Dells.

Awesome place to stay

5 on April 02, 2013

The hosts were very good. Awesome Breakfast and services. Absolutely recommend

Review for Bowman's Oak Hill Bed & Breakfast

4.4 on March 27, 2013

This was our first stay at a bed and breakfast and we loved it. The property was beautiful and the attention to detail in our room was outstanding. I would recommend to anyone who wants to get out of the touristy watermark atmosphere in the Dells.

Had an excellent stay, we will certainly be back!

5 on March 24, 2013

Everything about our experience at Bowman's Oak Hill B&B was great. From being welcomed in when we arrived to the check-out, each detail exceeded our expectations. The room was perfect for our honeymoon and the service was great. They didn't have other guests on some of the nights during the week so breakfast was brought to us at our cottage in the morning which was a nice service. All of our future visits to the Wisconsin Dells will include a stop at the Bowman's Oak Hill B&B!

Bowman's Oak Hill Bed & Breakfast

4.6 on March 06, 2013

This was my last trip up to Wis. Dells for Volleyball tournaments. My daughter is a Sr. and I have been coming up there for 5 yrs. The girls all stay together and I forgot to make a reservation at the hotel. Faced with high priced, water park rooms, I turned to B&B sites. WHY DID I NOT DO THIS 5 YRS. AGO!!! So relaxing and enjoyable!

February get away for the Snow Train

4.4 on March 05, 2013

Very private and clean cabin. Very nice mingling with the guests for breakbast.


5 on March 01, 2013

I took my girlfriend here for Valentine's day amd we were both so amazed at such a great place. we will definitely come here again and choose our vacation stays around this bed and breakfast.


5 on February 24, 2013

The hosts were gracious and welcoming, the room was very comfortable, and the food was great.

Peaceful surroundings plus great breakfasts!

4.6 on January 01, 2013

Stayed 3 nights while son and his family were staying at a waterpark resort. Perfect for me to stay at this B & B at night, eat a delicious breakfast, then join my son and his family.

A night in the woods!!!

5 on December 10, 2012

We enjoyed the hot tub. Breakfast was great. New friends are always a pleasure to find. Thanks for the menories.

A wonderful place to stay in the Dell

4.6 on November 27, 2012

If you are looking for a relaxing place to stay just minutes from all the action in the Dells, this is the place. We stayed in their cottages and it was truly relaxing, comfortable and enjoyable. Went to the main house each day for breakfast but also had kitchen facilities in our cottages so we could eat leftovers, make coffee, etc. Treat yourself and stay here!

Just Right

5 on November 27, 2012

Been there twice. Tried both cabins and enjoyed two of the best weekend getaways of our lives. everything is nice.

Just amazing and relaxing. Everything we hoped for.

5 on November 14, 2012

Just amazing and relaxing. Everything we hoped for.

Garden Cottage and Argosy Experience

4.4 on November 14, 2012

The first night we spend in the Garden Cottage and it is a beautiful accomodation. You feel like you are sitting in a cottage in the valley all by yourself. We truly enjoyed this stay. The second night we stayed in the Argosy. The Argosy is a nice way for people to experience the camping adventure. The claw foot tubs in the private screened tent were awesome and even though the weather was cool they were very relaxing and we enjoyed using them on Saturday night after a day of being in the rain.


5 on November 13, 2012

This was the second time my hubby and I stayed here, and it was great service, a wonderful night of sleep, some of the best egss ever and the most delicious pancakes either of us have had. Nancy and David are truly wonderful people and we will be returning again for sure and probably continue to do so.

Need to relax? Stay at Bowman's!

4.6 on October 30, 2012

We stayed at Bowman's Oak Hill for our 4th wedding anniversary. We stayed in the Garden Cottage and couldn't have asked for a better experience. David and Nancy are awesome hosts that make you feel as if you are visiting relatives. They are always around if you need anything at all but also give you plenty of space for privacy. We brought our 17 month daughter with us and she really enjoyed playing with their two cute little dogs. If you are looking for a place to get away from it all just to relax look no further than Bowman's!

Exceptional B & B

5 on October 28, 2012

Our recent stay at Bowman's Oak Hill Bed and Breakfast was wonderful. Nancy and David were excellent and gracious hosts and we truly enjoyed the over the top, delicious breakfasts. The house is beautifully decorated with gorgeous antiques. We stayed in Aunt Geri’s Cottage which is very charming and cozy. The house, the cottage and the grounds were immaculate. We would definitely recommend this B & B and are planning on staying there again.

Nice transition for a first time BnB'er

4.6 on October 28, 2012

We stayed at Bowman's B&B, in the Argosy Adventure. Not much of a stretch, since we camp on a regular basis, but we wanted the B&B experience. Dave and Nancy were AWESOME, and were there for any need we may have had. Beautiful property and personal touches.

Beautiful stay!

4.8 on October 10, 2012

We were absolutely delighted with our stay at The Bowman's home. We chose the Argosy adventure and it was one of the most unique and romantic anniversaries we have had to date. The tubs were phenominal! It was only about 40 degrees but we put our robes on and headed into our private cabana and relaxed with a steamy bubble bath while listening to nature all around us. I felt like I was at an expensive spa, not a streamline trailer :) The Trailer itself is so cute and clean. The matresses(yes, separate beds) were so cozy. The sitting area was comfy with a futon-like couch/bed perfect for cuddling up to watch a movie. We are NOT campers.. matter of fact we hate it but boy did we LOVE the Argosy. We will be back. We loved David and Nancy too, they were the nicest people.

A wonderful break in Wisconsin Dellsr

4.2 on October 05, 2012

We chose to stay at Bowman's Oak Hill to get away from the large 5 star hotels we had been staying in during our North America adventure. It was an excellent choice to make. We stayed in one of the cottages. We had lots of room & felt we had our own space. Bowman's Oak Hill provided a quiet break. Nancy & David provided a friendly atmosphere & prepared a tasty breakfast that set us up for the day. I highly recommend this B&B.

Argosy Adventure

4.4 on October 04, 2012

If you like nature and camping in style, the Argosy Adventure is the place to visit. The outside tubs were very unique and relaxing after a long day of walking. The Bowmans have put a lot of thought and hard work into this vacation outing. Breakfast was awesome and the company was very interesting. Thank you for a great weekend!

A bowman blast

4.6 on October 03, 2012

The owners of Bowmans were unbelievable. They are very kind and courteous. The breakfast was amazing. Would recommend this bed and breakfast and can't wait to stay there again.

The Argosy - Wonderful Adventure

4.6 on October 03, 2012

Wonderful stay. David and Nancy are the nicest host and hostess. Nancy made a wonderful breakfast accomodating my special diet restrictions. The renovated air stream was a different way to stay. Definitely different in a GREAT way. The nice relaxing night out in the claw foot tubs could make anyone sleep like a baby. The location was great for us close to everything, but not in the hustle and bustle of Wisconsin Dells.

The perfect place to stay for our Sister's weekend

5 on September 30, 2012

Nancy and David were wonderful hosts and we had a great time. I would recommend the B&B to anyone.

We Loved It!!

5 on September 27, 2012

My husband and I stayed one night back in Feb. 2012. We absolutely loved it. We are going back for two nights this October. We cannot wait. We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this lovely B&B. David and Nancy were exceptional! We have recommended this B&B to many of our friends and family. Jamie and Mike Jerred

Pleasant stay

4.2 on September 18, 2012

My husband and I just stayed one night at Oak Hill but it definitely me our expectations. David and Nancy were gracious hosts that knew the area well. Breakfast was wonderful too!

Bowman's Garden Cottage - Beautiful, Quiet and wonderful hosts!

5 on September 03, 2012

Just got home from a 3 day mini vacation at Bowman's Oak Hill B&B. We stayed in the Garden Cottage. Being newbies to the whole B&B experience this was great. I would come back again and again to the Bowan's B&B. The little cottage was decorated so nicely. It was super clean and comfortable. David and Nancy made sure that we felt at home and that all of our needs were taking care of. We were celebrating our anniversary and Nancy and David were so kind to leave a personalized note and cookies. The property was just beautiful. Overlooking a plush garden of flowers and vegetables, we were able to sit out on our porch, relax and listen to the birds and wildlife. This is definitely a place I will be staying at again and again. Thank you again David and Nancy for making our stay at Bowman's B&B a pleasant one. Jon and Janel Fry - Caledonia WI

Wonderful Stay!

5 on August 23, 2012

Nancy and Dave were wonderful hosts. Nancy's cooking is outstanding. The rooms were spotless and always fixed up nice when we returned from our activities. They have 2 cute pups who greeted us every morning. We had a wonderful time.

More than I expected

5 on August 23, 2012

This was a different bed and Breakfast with the sleeping area being separate from the main location. It turned out that this was a small little cabin, with its own kitchenette, sitting area, bathroom and a front porch overlooking a garden. That cabin has a rich history and is so pleasant to stay in. It was so quiet and peaceful, everything was very well maintained in the cabin, it made you feel at home. We would sit on the porch and talk, enjoying the sounds of the woods and the views. I am from the city area and it was so relaxing to have the escape from the hustle and bustle. David and Nancy are the nicest folks you will ever meet, they treat you like family, not like renters. They take an interest in what your plans are and how you are, you never feel like some places where you know they are only going through the motions. These are good caring folks. They like to offer suggestions and ideas for you and let you know what is great to go do around the area. They even took into account my food allergies and adjusted for me! Some of the best breakfasts I think we have ever had. As we were pulling away, we both agreed that we have got to come back here again and make it soon!

Wonderful escape!

4.6 on August 22, 2012

Nancy and Dave are wonderful hosts. Kind, generous and amazing food. They welcome you into their home as if you're family!

Quite~ cozy~ romantic~ B&B cabin!

5 on August 22, 2012

David and Nancy have a charming cabin at their B&B it was perfect for your stay. Nice quite and romantic spot to grow even closer to the love of my life. We loved the little cabin and the breakfast both days was outstanding!

Great, relaxing place to stay

5 on August 21, 2012

Bowmans are great hosts and provide a delightful place to stay. Food was fantastic.

Outstanding, relaxing B&B

5 on August 16, 2012

We absolutely love this B&B. Nancy and Dave are wonderful. It is close to everything, yet very quiet and relaxing. We feel very welcome when we stay here. We very highly recommend it.

A Bright Light in The Dells

5 on August 11, 2012

David & Nancy are great hosts! We loved our two-night stay. Exceptionally clean and tidy. Beautiful grounds and cabin. Great coffee! Creative and tasty breakfasts. They have your comfort at heart. Can't think of a negative thing to say about this little bit of heaven in Wisconsin Dells.

Bowman's B & B

3.6 on August 09, 2012

The property is very relaxing and the room was clean and quaint. The owners were accommodating and friendly. the location was close to town and attractions. We enjoyed our stay very much

Our First B&B experience couldn't have been better!

5 on July 25, 2012

In all the hustle and bustle that is the Dells, I never would have imagined finding a little hideaway. But we did. Not only was the cabin perfect for our weekend getaway, but David and Nancy made us feel right at home. Their recommendations were spot on and the care they put into their B&B shows. David's cabin is a work of art and Nancy's food looked straight out of a magazine, and just as tasty as it looked. Highly recommend their B&B and can't wait to go back.

A home away from home

4.6 on July 18, 2012

We had never been to the Dells before and I am so glad we chose to stay here rather than at one of the many hotels or water park resorts we drove past. From the very beginning we felt right at home at the Bowman's Oak Hill B&B. Nancy greeted us warmly (and with some amazing cookies I might add!) and our room (Elmer's Oak) was exactly as it was pictured on the website. I don't believe the bathroom was pictured and it was outdated, however, very clean and therefore very comfortable. The home itself was quaint, comfortable and away from all the business of the downtown Dells area. I wish we would have had more time to enjoy the backyard deck area, but perhaps next time. Both David and Nancy were wonderful hosts- always happy to spend some time getting to know you and loved telling us stories about their children and grandchildren. Their two little dogs Cookie and Tessie were so sweet and really added to our experience. Ok, the food.....what can I say? It was AMAZING!!!!! Personally, I am a breakfast nut and hope to own my own B&B one day. I hope my future B&B dishes will be as tasty as these! The first morning we had a southwestern frittata with bacon, fresh fruit and a nice, big homemade cinnamon roll. The second morning we had peaches & cream french toast with sausage and a fresh fruit smoothie. Everything was just perfect. This is the fifth B&B I've stayed at and definitely one of the best. If you are a B&B fan like me, here is what you will probably love about it- #1. The food. #2. The hospitality. #3. The cleanliness. #4. The other guests (at least in our experience). #5. The proximity to other attractions. My only critique (not even a complaint because everything was wonderful) is that I prefer B&B's with a lot of architectural details and charm. This didn't have that, but the rest of the experience was top notch. We will definitely stay there again next time we are in the area

First time b&b

5 on July 16, 2012

Was very impressed with the Bowman's Bed and Breakfast! The atmosphere was extremely clean, inviting and relaxing! We will definitely be making a return trip!

An outstanding stay

5 on July 16, 2012

Bowman's Oak Hill B & B is in a beautiful setting. A long winding driveway to the house and grounds opens to the quiet yard with host and hostess ready to open their home to new guests. They are very gracious and helpful to your needs. Need a restaurant recommendation? How about what do do near by? Just ask. They have guest books for each guest room filled with wonderful comments from those who have stayed in the past. I must comment on the Breakfast part of the B & B. Nancy did her award winning 2009 Wisconsin Bed & Breakfast Association’s statewide recipe cook-off recipe for Wisconsin Wild Rice Cran-Apple Breakfast Bake. Wow, it is no wonder it won this award. We enjoyed our stay at Bowman's B & B and would recommend to anyone traveling to the WI. Dells to take our recommendation and stay in this B & B. You will feel like you are at home.

Delightful, Unique B&B Experience

5 on July 03, 2012

I have been to several B&Bs in the past, and this one was by far a standout! Nancy and David were FANTASTIC hosts, extremely welcoming, warm, and congenial! We stayed for three nights in Aunt Gracie's cabin -- I highly recommend staying in one of the cabins while here. They are as adorable in person as they are in pictures on the website! Nancy is a TERRIFIC cook! My boyfriend and I are picky eaters to an extent, but we were delighted each morning with the spread that was prepared for us. The food combinations were as unique as the cabin setting -- what I mean to say is that Nancy used a variety of ingredients in preparing her meals -- healthy ingredients -- though you'd never know it! Delicious, flavorful combinations that you wouldn't think to put together. We were even lucky enough to experience her award-winning breakfast combination -- scrumptious! I cannot recommend this B&B enough!!! Note -- it's a short drive to the main drag where the Dells action is -- tourist trap area if you will -- but far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet that one yearns for while on vacation!

Mini Vacation

5 on June 30, 2012

We stayed in Aunt Geri's Cottage, and it was wonderful. The cottage was so cozy and comfortable, it made us feel like we were at home. The breakfast each morning was delicious. The Bowmans were wonderful hosts. We would definitely stay there again and recommend to our family and friends.

Lovely B & B for a quiet get-away.

5 on June 25, 2012

We stayed at the Bowman's Oak Hill B & B last week while visiting the Wisconsin Dells and were delighted at the friendliness of the hosts, David and Nancy. They gave us helpful information of places to see and eat, and their home was most welcoming after a long day of travel....very clean and quaint. We highly recommend this B & B. The breakfasts were amazing, too! A great way to start the day.


5 on June 11, 2012

This was our first stay at a bed and breakfast and it set our expectations high. The cottage was clean, cozy, and romantic. The two best breakfasts I've had in a long long time. David and Nancy went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. They even sent us off with plants and flowers for our garden. We were very pleased with everything and look forward to returning in the future.

A weekend to remember

4.0 on May 02, 2012

Even with Nancy out of town Dave was a wonderful host, our stay in Aunt Gracie's cabin was delightful and the breakfast that Dave prepared was different and delicious. I certainly plan on returning doing the warmer season so I can fully enjoy all that a B&B has to offer.

Gem of a place

4.8 on April 16, 2012

A very pleasant stay, worth every penny. Excellent food, comfort and hospitality,

Nature and Nuture Combined

Third visit to this unique B & B; can't wait to go back again very soon!

All about the food

3.8 on March 30, 2012

When I booked this bed and breakfast I needed 2 things: 1. a place to stay that was close to entertaining activities, 2. an interesting, home-cooked breakfast! We were close to Wisconsin Dells, a very charming place for gambling, games, indoor water playgrounds, bowling, bars, arcades...etc. We also had some fantastic meals! I think the french toast jumble was the best out of our meals there. It was a very nice, Christian Bed and Breakfast.

Amazing Anniversary Trip!

5 on March 25, 2012

This was our first stay at a bed and breakfast, and we couldn't have asked for a better first place! The cabin was so cozy and clean. The hosts were amazing! We had great conversation during breakfast, which was delicious! We can't wait to return again, and we have been recommending it to everyone!

Outstanding B&B

5 on March 11, 2012

This B&B was outstanding in all aspects. The owners Dave and Nancy are the nicest people you will ever meet. They know how to treat and service their guests. The breakfast they served each morning was the best we have ever had. Not only was the food good but the presentation was all very nice as well. We enjoyed our conversations with them and will definitely go there again. We highly recommend it.

Privacy and Romance

4.6 on February 22, 2012

We stayed in the Garden Cottage and loved the cottage and the privacy. We hope to revisit in the summer time and enjoy morning coffee on the porch. David and Nancy are very gracious hosts and we enjoyed our conversations. We would highly recommend a visit to Bowman's Oak Hill B&B and a stay in the Garden Cottage.

Wonderful Retreat

5 on February 16, 2012

What a wonderful place to relax and unwind. I had a great time talking with David and Nancy they are such wonderful hosts. Breakfast was fabulous! I will definately be back to this Bed and Breakfast. I would highly recommend to anyone! Theresa

Our Weekend Getaway Was Amazing!

5 on February 08, 2012

My husband and I only had one night to spend alone together and he picked this BnB. I was very impressed with David and Nancy as the hosts and quite impressed with the cabin that we stayed in. It was very private and cozy and best of all, romantic! Nancy was very helpful in finding things to do while we were in the Dells area. The breakfast was "to die for" and the conversation was even better. We highly recomend this BnB to anyone that wants to leave all their troubles behind and get away from it all! Jason and Jennifer Joling

Just what we needed

4.4 on November 18, 2011

The innkeepers were absolutely wonderful, and their breakfasts were to die for!! Absolutely loved her special pancakes, never tasted such delicious pancakes before!! Gracie's Room was great and very relaxing!

The best!

5 on November 16, 2011

The owners were very personable and friendly. I felt like they were my friends by the time I left.

A great place to stay

4.6 on November 15, 2011

We had a wonderful experience. The rooms were very nice and comfortable. The bathroom was spotless. Our hosts were warm, friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was delicious. Couldn't ask for much more!

Great Weekend Getaway

4.6 on November 07, 2011

My husband and I stayed in Aunt Geri's cottage for three nights for a weekend getaway. It was a spectacular stay. The setting of the B&B is great. It is very peaceful and out of way of the downtown area but is only about 5 minutes away. The three breakfasts we had were beyond delicious. I would highly recommend a stay here and we will stay again if ever we visit the Dells again.

A delightful place!

4.0 on November 04, 2011

The setting is beautiful, owners delightful, overall a great place to stay!


5 on November 03, 2011

At the Bowman’s Oak Hill B&B, We stayed in the cottage and had an awesome expirience. David and Nancy are wonderful people. We felt like we were with family the week and a half we stayed with the Bowman’s. The Breakfast was awesome every morning. The cottage was clean and very nice. We are looking forward to returning to Wisconsin and staying with Nancy and David in the near future.

Fall Getaway

4.8 on October 26, 2011

We definitely enjoyed our visit and would have stayed more nights if there would have been a vacancy. The breakfasts were outstanding and the hospitality was genuine. We'll be back.

Great Experience

4.8 on October 20, 2011

This was our first stay at a bed & breakfast. I wanted to do something special for my significant other on our anniversary and this fit the bill nicely. Nancy was quite welcoming upon arrival. Our room was so immaculate we were almost too afraid to touch anything. We enjoyed a nice night out in the Dells. Breakfast was absolutely wonderful! David is quite knowledgeable about the history of the area which made for some good conversation. Thanks for the stay!

Absolutely Charming

5 on October 17, 2011

My best friend and I needed a girls night away from our guys so we thought there's no better option than a quaint bed and breakfast in the Dells. We had the best time!! They recommended a fantastic restaurant nearby and ensured we knew exactly how to get there. The place is lovely and the property is gorgeous! We decided that whenever we needed girl time, we would head there without a doubt! Don't even get me started on the delicious food! Check it out!

'Long Days and Pleasant Nights'

5 on September 26, 2011

This was around our 15th trip across the 'pond' from the UK. We've stayed in all the usual chain hotels. The upmarket and the more average ones. We decided to try something different and give a B&B a try instead. B&B's are very common in the UK far more numerous than they appear to be in the US. If this is typical of the standard you can expect then boy alot of you are missing a trick over there. Nancy and David were incredible hosts. We stayed with our 13 year son in one of the two on site cottage's. I know its a cliche but it was a 'home from home' that will live a long time in my memory. Nancy's breakfasts are to die for. They are without doubt the best we have had in the US. All I can say is if your reading this and you choose to stay elsewhere then you've made a poor decision.... Thank you both for helping to make our stay a memorable one. God Bless.


5 on September 21, 2011

This was our second stay at Bowman's Oak Hill Bed and Breakfast and it was AWESOME. Dave and Nancy are great hosts. The cabin was a perfect retreat and the breakfast was fabulous. If you are looking for a romantic getway or simply a place to unwind, you need to stay at Bowman's Oak Hill Bed and Breakfast. It is also only a few minutes from downtown Wisconsin Dells, but it feels very private and secluded. We will stay here again and again. I highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast

The long road home

Nancy and David were great hosts. The location is close to activities but quiet and peaceful at night.

Peaceful Weekend

4.6 on August 23, 2011

We had a great time at Bowman's. The room was very comfortable and so clean! The breakfast was wonderful. It was such a nice peaceful weekend.

So close, yet so far away.......

4.8 on August 23, 2011

What a wonderful environment that has been created by The Bowman's. Hospitality, friendliness, wonderful breakfast, quiet, I could go on. All that and only 7 minutes from all of The Dells attractions.

my first B & B stay

4.4 on August 17, 2011

This is both my first and last B & B stay. Lovely room, great bed, tasty cookies, and good breakfast. One of the other guests is in great need of C-PAC. I could hear her snoring through the walls. Nasty.

A Wonderful Respite

4.8 on August 08, 2011

My wife and I spent two nights at Bowman's and consider it one of the finest B & B's we have visited. We prefer to stay in a bed and breakfast inn rather than a hotel and we were so pleased that we were able to book a room there. David and Nancy do B & B right! The accomodations were wonderful, our stay was very peaceful and David and Nancy were two of the most warm and hospitable hosts we have met. My wife has several food allergies and they were so very careful to make sure she had a good meal each morning. If you are ever in the Wisconsin Dells area, forget the hotels. Book a room at the Bowman house!

excellent place to stay

5 on August 02, 2011

Very nice accomadations, very relaxing, quiet, very friendly innkeepers.

Great Stay in Dellls

4.0 on July 29, 2011

This is a wonderful alternative to other lodging in the Dells. Nancy and Nancy are very generous with their time and helping you to be comfortable. The location is great and gives you a sense of isolation even though you are so close to everything.

Peaceful Location

4.8 on July 28, 2011

We were two sisters traveling together to find a serene location with wonderful hosts. The room was perfect for the two of us, the full breakfast was superb and the amenities were exactly as described. The location was quiet and peaceful although we were very close to the Wisconsin Dells excitement. We will definitely stay with them again.

A grown-up place to stay in the Dells

4.8 on July 22, 2011

A nice quiet oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the town, but close enough by car to be convenient. The breakfasts were delicious, and Dave and Nancy were wonderful hosts. The luxurious linens and comfortable bed provided a great night's rest.

Excellent B&B, Exceptional Location

4.2 on July 18, 2011

This B&B is exceptionally clean and the owners are extraordinarily friendly and welcoming. The location is about 1 mile off of the main strip in the Dells, so it is convenient. However, the location is wooded, serene and secluded, leading to a very relaxing location. I booked at the last minute and could not get one of the cabins (we stayed in the main house), but we did see the cabins, which looked so nice, my wife and I are planning another trip up to stay in them. Be sure to say "Hi" to their outdoor cat, Mr. Whiskers, who is exceedingly friendly!

First time at a Bed and Breakfast

3.8 on July 13, 2011

It was a really good first experience. They were extremely nice and our room and bathroom were extremely clean. Any concerns i had about staying at a bed and breakfast quickly disappeared. I would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it to others

Bowmans Bed & Breakfast

4.8 on July 11, 2011

We spent two nights in the garden cottage and were vey pleased with the cleanliness and the peace & quite. The breakfast each day was 5 star along with the wonderful ideas that Nancy & David gave us for the area. I look forward to staying there many more times in the future and highly recommend this B & B to everyone. Hopefully you will get a chance to taste Nancy's lemon sauce which I believe she should market. Thanks again Nancy & David ! Marianne S. Dayton, Oh

What a Wonderful B&B..Looking forward to going back!

5 on July 09, 2011

This is a wonderful B&B. You can tell they Love what they are doing here...all of the special little things...homemade cookies in your room..bed turned down with chocolates..Beautiful Linen...the yard has all sorts of places to sit and enjoy the garden and little birds every where....And a Breakfast to die for....We are already talking about when we will go back.

Relaxing Anniversary Weekend

4.0 on June 27, 2011

David and Nancy warmly welcomed us into their home and recommended a great place for dinner. The breakfasts were fantastic - both the food and conversation. Elmer's Oak View Room in the house was very comfortable and clean. They shared history of the Wisconsin Dells area and a video of the 2008 draining of Lake Delton. We had a pleasant three night stay and recommend Bowman's Oak Hill to others.

What a treat!

5 on June 21, 2011

WOW! What a wonderful setting - quiet and peaceful, but only minutes from all the attractions Wisconsin Dells has to offer! Aunt Geri's cabin is lovely and immaculate! Breakfasts were amazing!!! They were incredibly delicious and no need to eat again until dinner! David and Nancy also made our time around the table very special - like sharing a meal with family! We drove 11 hours to celebrate our anniversary at Bowman's Oak Hill B&B, and it was definitely worth the drive!!! We're already planning a return trip!!!!!

Perfect weekend

4.4 on June 17, 2011

My husband and I went to stay at Bowman's Oak Hill for a mini-BabyMoon. It was so cute and clean and the Bowman's were so nice. I can't say enough about the food!! It was some of the best breakfast food I have ever had. Both mornings were so yummy!! We went out to dinner in the Dells both evenings and had a lovely time. During the day on Saturday we got discounted waterpark passes to Kalahari through the B&B and we had a blast. It was a wonderfully relaxing weekend and just what we needed. We are already talking about getting a group to go stay again.

Outstanding Bed and Breakfast experience.

4.6 on June 12, 2011

Nancy and David are excellent hosts and made us feel welcome and special. We would recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone and already have! If we are ever back in the area we will definitely be staying at the Bowman's Oak Hill Bed and Breakfast.

Dells done right

4.0 on June 08, 2011

My wife and I really enjoyed our "minication". The rooms were spotless, the food was great and our hosts were gracious and informative. We will definitely be back in the future. Well done Bowman's!!!!!

Anniversary perfection

5 on May 17, 2011

My wife and I returned to Bowman's the third time in as many years for our wedding anniversary. As in the previous times, our stay was great! Location: easy access. Far enough away from town to avoid crowds, but close enough to run in for fun and dining. Grounds: well maintained, in a private location Breakfast: Superb. We have visited a number of B&B's around the Midwest and this ranks as one of the top in taste and presentation. Rooms: All rooms and cottages very clean and well maintained with great amenities. The cottages are PERFECT for a very private and romantic getaway! Hosts: The best part! Nancy and David are a wonderful couple, who are waiting to serve you. If you like to get to know your hosts, this is the place to come. Friendly and forward come to mind, but if you are a private person they respect that as much. If you are looking for a great place to stay, I highly recommend this location.


3.6 on May 04, 2011

The hospitality was wonderful and we loved the cottage that we stayed in.

Bowman's Oak Hill on April 1, 2011

4.2 on April 16, 2011

We stayed in the Garden cottage. It was quiet & peaceful, very relaxing. Huge comfortable bed. Breakfast was delicious. Hosts are very welcoming & friendly. We will definitely stay there again.

Just what the doctor ordered.

5 on April 03, 2011

Everything about our stay was wonderful from the peace, serenity, and generous hospitality provided by the innkeepers David and Nancy Bowman. My wife and I will never forget our stay there and looking forward to returning.

A Great Little Place To Recharge

5 on April 01, 2011

We stayed here for 3 nights in Aunt Geri's Cottage for our 10th Year Anniversary. It was clean,cozy and relaxing. David & Nancy are great inn keepers and go way above their way to make your stay welcoming and comfortable. Nancy's Breakfasts are outstanding and very far from ordinary. I was teasing her saying how are we suppose to go back to a normal life after eating her breakfasts in the morning. David & Nancy are very informational and know the area around the Dells very well. We even took their recommendations for dinner and it turned out to be one of the best little local places to dine at. I hope we can visit again soon cause I totally want to go back. This was our first experience with a B&B and a very GOOD one!!


5 on March 27, 2011

We had such a wonderful time during our stay at Bowman's Oak. We just wanted a simple weekend getaway before our baby was born, and it was just perfect. We stayed in the garden cottage, which was just beautiful, homey, clean, and perfect. Nancy and David were so friendly and made the best breakfast! They are the perfect type of folks to own a bed and breakfast--they are so friendly and warm. We would go back again just to visit them. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast.

Great Stay

4.8 on March 02, 2011

Bowman's B&B was a fantastic first experience. Owners are very courteous and polite, going out of their way to make the stay as enjoyable as possible. Great breakfast in a comfortable, family-style setting. Recommend for anyone!

Perfect Getaway

5 on February 23, 2011

Wow, what a weekend! Bowman's Oak Hill Bed and Breakfast provided everything that a weekend getaway could offer. My wife and I work stressful jobs and needed a place to relax. Both of our birthdays occurred over the Presidents Day weekend and we were thinking about flying all the way out to stay with my wife's grandparents in New Hampshire in order to enjoy the warmth and restfulness of a home. We finally agreed that it was just too expensive for just a few days and decided to book a B&B instead. I am big into researching activates before I book them and Bowman's B&B came #1 recommended on TripAdvisor and included some wonderful comments by the visitors. I'm not exactly sure where to start because there are so many aspects of this B&B that were exceptional. I was tempted to book one of the cabins that are offered to ensure that everything was as peaceful as possible, but it was taken before we could decide. It turns out that it didn't matter because even though our room was in the main house it provided a perfectly cozy and homey atmosphere while including amenities like a large whirlpool tub and stand in shower. My wife noted that the feeling of the room reminded her of her grandparent’s house and gave her just as much of a restful ambiance. The room was just the beginning as the Bowman's truly made us feel at home. Warm, welcoming, and friendly people, if I didn't know any better I would have thought that we were their grandchildren. From helping us get around the Dells as newcomers, to first-hand recommendations, to exquisite homemade breakfasts, to chatting about our jobs and lives, the Bowman’s were simply a joy to be around. Their relationship, attitude, and positivity were an inspiration for my wife and I, and gave us hope as for what our relationship could blossom into in our later years. If we ever go back to the dells (this B&B might be the #1 motivator for us to do so) we will be staying at Bowman's Oak Hill Bed and Breakfast.

Secluded Peace and Quite

5 on January 10, 2011

This is a great place to "recharge the batteries." My wife and I arrived early and were warmly welcomed by the owners, David and Nancy. We enjoyed a quite evening together away from the maddening crowds. Breakfast with the owners the next day topped off a great day away from our responsibilities.

An amazing experience!

5 on January 05, 2011

Nancy and David are wonderful hosts with exceptional hospitality! Foreigners friendly. Breakfast's delicious with all the fresh ingredients from their garden. We love the stories about their house and the area.

Immaculate & Welcoming

5 on November 02, 2010

When I saw the website, I knew this was the place we wanted to stay, and we were not disappointed. The b&b was immaculate, and Nancy & David were so welcoming. The breakfasts were incredible. One morning we had freshly picked raspberries. Our accommodations were in the home part of the B&B, and our room had adequate space for luggage. The common areas were very nice. We wished the weather would have been nicer so that we could have enjoyed the outside deck. The b&b away from the hustle and bustle of the downtown & waterpark area, but we were close to everything in the Dells.

Quiet, serene and welcoming

4.2 on August 18, 2010

A welcoming retreat from the city life awaits you at David and Nancy's Inn. They are just a few miles from the downtown Dells area and water parks. But, you would not know it. You will drive up to their place and see old white pines and beautiful flowers everywhere. There are two cabins with all the amenities and their home is immaculate. The breakfast is fresh and the berries were hand picked from their garden that morning. So much food, we could hardly eat it all. You are treated as if you are family and welcomed with open arms. We were blessed with being able to find this wonderful and relaxing home atmosphere. All the comforts of home without having to do anything but relax. WE loved it.

Great place to stay while you play

5 on June 07, 2010

I have stayed with Nancy & David several times and each time my expectations are exceeded. We had a delicious breakfast of pancakes with a delicious lemon sauce and sliced fresh strawberries out of their garden, crisp bacon and a lovely fruit dish with a brown sugar topping. Pair that with delicious coffee and juice and wonderful conversation and what a wonderful way to start a day in the Dells. After a busy day doing all the things the Dells has to offer, Bowman's Oak Hill offers a restful respite from the day. Thank you again to David and Nancy!
