Beautify restored home - a veritable museum. Excellent breakfasts. Genial host. A great find.

Best of all, the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and we were made to feel very special. The decor was over-the-top Victorian! I could never live in a home like this, but it is truly a fun place to visit. I wish we had been able to stay longer to enjoy more of the amenities.

Innkeeper Darrell was very pleasant & accommodating. We enjoyed our visit tremendously!

I have stayed at Isadora's many times over the last few years and always enjoy it. The Sunroom Garden Suite is my favorite, but all the rooms are very nice. Haven't stayed in the French Nook yet, but I will just so I can say I've tried all the rooms! Great B&B, great hosts, great food - what more do you want?? Darrell and Deb are outstanding hosts and just all around good folks. I stay in hotels or B&B's around 100 nights per year and this is my favorite place to go. It's the only place I stay when in the area unless they are full or closed for some reason. Don't hesitate - you won't be sorry!

Our stay was a last minute decision and it was a good one.

I enjoyed it. I'm a vegan so I brought my own food for breakfast. So was nice to have access to a mini-fridge in the dining room.

My husband and I were married on September 19th and picked Isadora's Bed and Breakfast as our 2 day get-away/honeymoon. Our suite had a whirlpool tub we took full advantage of and the entire weekend was very quiet, peaceful and romantic. Breakfast was a pleasant surprise with a healthy and tasty menu. We were able to have some conversation with the owners, Debbie and Darrell, who made us feel very welcome and gave us some background on the history of the house. The décor and atmosphere was definitely a plus for my husband and I. We were very glad we chose Isadora's as our honeymoon get-away!

short 1 night stay and gone early the next day so didn't get a chance to try breakfast. room was nice.
4.6 on August 20, 2015
Stayed 3 nights & we're very comfortable & impressed. It's interesting & like a museum. When we return to this area, we will definitely book here again, as it's a lot more pleasurable than staying in a hotel.

Our entire experience was perfect. D&D were most gracious hosts. If it were possible to sell everything at home I would have stayed on permanently. Well done!
5 on May 27, 2015
The Garden Suite was awsome! It had a 4 season sun room in addition to the bedroom. I would definitely stay here again! The food was great!

An excellent example of what a B & B should be. Super friendly owner. Beautiful room and a truly great breakfast. A+ experience. Highly recommended.
5 on April 29, 2015
Nicely restored home with excellent rooms and facilities. The innkeepers were very nice, knowledgeable and accommodating and the food was excellent. If I ever stay in the West Bend area again, I will look to stay at Isadora's B&B again and recommend them to anyone going to the area.
3.4 on April 21, 2015
The room was very nice and the food was delicious and beautifully presented in a relaxing, quiet atmosphere. The history of the house and the Victorian décor was very interesting. There are period dresses on mannequins throughout the house. The owner was quietly friendly and knew a lot about the area and where to eat. It’s a short walk to the downtown area.

Charming lodgings, well situated, with caring, attentive hosts and gourmet breakfasts. We have stayed there before and will certainly do so again!

Nice house and grounds to tour. Loved the porch in the morning.
5 on August 18, 2014
My wife and I were looking for something to do for our wedding anniversary. We didn't have the time to do a big trip and living near Chicago makes it pretty difficult some times to find things to do out side of the city. Isadora's B&B was the perfect place. It is run by the nicest people who pay close attention to detail and provide a great atmosphere. The food was amazing and they even went out of there way to accommodate my wife's gluten intolerance. We highly recommend it and plan on returning.
5 on August 04, 2014
This B & B is definitely one of the best we've stayed in. The house is done in Victorian style to match what was in fashion then. Every detail was attended to. The host and hostess are very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were delicious. I highly recommend staying here.
4.6 on July 30, 2014
This was my husbands first time at a B&B, though I've had many. He loved it and I have to be honest, this one was my favorite. He would rather stay at B&B's in the future instead of hotels. Darrell was there to meet us at the door and made sure there was appropriate parking for my hubby's collector car as we were returning from a car show. He gave us a tour and our eyes were racing to take in all the beauty of this magnificent home. We were treated with dessert and beverages which we enjoyed on the wrap around porch. We watched day turn into night and swung on the porch swing catching glimpses of the fireflies. The room was cozy and had extra touches of period decorations and furniture. The chocolates next to the bed was a nice surprise also. Breakfast was outstanding, better than any restaurant we could have found. Banana muffins, broiled grapefruit, quiche, bacon, fresh orange juice and fruit were served on beautiful china on top of the ornate dining room furniture. Take the time to explore the history and artifacts in this home. There was great time and care in the decorating and there was much to take in. Darrell and Deb was wonderful hosts and we truly hated to leave. Steinie and Lori, Wisconsin Rapids, WI

This is a homey place to stay. It is a fun experience to have a meal with other guests and to learn about them.
5 on June 25, 2014
We stayed here for the proximity to downtown. The inn was quiet and the proprietor was very friendly and courteous. During a brief rain spell, we relaxed on the porch swing and were dry and comfortable. I plan to come back here again.
4.2 on November 26, 2013
Warm and comfortable. They offered a wide assortment of reading materials and many places to enjoy them. I was upgraded to a different room which offered more privacy. Breakfast was very filling and delicious.
4.8 on November 18, 2013
Very comfortable, excellent hosts, fascinating historical details. I would definitely stay here again.
5 on October 23, 2013
It was like staying in a museum, a walk back in time. I would stay there again. Can hardly wait til summer when all the flowers are in bloom.
5 on September 02, 2013
We spend five nights at this wonderful, historic B&B. Each day started with a fabulous breakfast. The presentation was awesome and the taste was even better. Our room was filled with beautiful antiques and connected to a lovely sitting area. The downstairs parlor and dining rooms were like a living is a museum. And sitting on the porch was so relaxing. Deb & Darrell were tremendous hosts. We highly recommend this wonderful B&B.
4.6 on August 27, 2013
My first stay in a B&B and I have to say it was very enjoyable, clean and quaint. The owners are wonderful people.

We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful victorian mansion. The decor was lovely and the food was wonderful.
5 on August 16, 2013
House was lovingly restored, and decorated with authentic pieces from the time period 1893-1935. Home can keep the guests occupied with the unique touches.
5 on August 16, 2013
Our stay at Isadora's was a spontaneous one. We live in West Bend and have always wondered about the big beautiful house on the hill. Last night my husband said "lets go", we called and they were happy to accommodate us last minute. The house was captivating. The history of the house is so intriguing, I felt like I was being told a bed time story. The owners have an equally interesting one so our stay was restful but quite adventurous for the mind. Loved it!
5 on August 16, 2013
Darrell and Deb made us so comfortable. We loved everything about our stay. We felt like a King and Queen. We will return. It was much more comfortable than a motel stay. Thank-you. P&G
4.2 on August 15, 2013
An eclectic collection of period antiques awaits you in this stunning cozy home. Deb and Darrell dedicate themselves to assuring that your stay will be memorable.
3.8 on August 14, 2013
The French Nook is on the 3rd floor of the house, and stairs from 2nd floor are narrow and steep. Carrying luggage upstairs from 1st floor can be difficult, and no assistance was offered - although in fairness, we did not ask. Room is tiny and has no closet, so unpacking except for socks and underwear (there is drawer space) is not an option. Also, we found the room quite chilly. While it was acceptable for a one-night stay, I wouldn't choose the French Nook again. We stayed in a 2nd floor room on a prior visit and thought it was very nice. Breakfast was tasty and nicely presented, and the innkeepers are very pleasant. The location is ideal. I'd recommend Isadora's to anyone and hope to stay there again - just not in the Nook.
5 on August 14, 2013
This home in so peaceful and relaxing. Darrell and Deb are warm and friendly - you can tell they love what they do. We will be going back.
5 on July 25, 2013
Unlike many B & Bs that have a buffet breakfast, I felt like the Earl from Downton Abby being served a wonderful three course breakfast with great coffee and a newspaper.
4.6 on July 17, 2013
We were only supposed to be stopping through but it was tough to leave. The garden is lovely and lots of outdoor seating is offered. The big antique bathtub is heavenly. The sun porch upstairs is a great place to read. And it's a lot of fun to look at all the vintage clothing and antiques. I didn't get to visit much with the owners but they seem very interesting.
5 on July 07, 2013
We used Isadora's as a base for the Strawberry Festival and other attractions, and our choice could not have been a better one. Our hosts were charming people. We loved our room with its room overlooking the garden, and every inch of this b&b is wonderful to explore. We'll be back.
4.8 on June 17, 2013
Wonderfully decorated home; very friendly; loved the evening dessert! Only complaint (minor) was road noise--who knew West Bend had so many motorcycles?
4.8 on June 10, 2013
Isadora's is a beautiful Victorian home. I loved the house & antiques inside the home. Everyone was friendly and rooms and breakfast was awesome.
4.8 on June 10, 2013
What a surprise for Rose to turn 61 and get to sleep in the room called "Country Rose". Since we saw good live music that evening, this became her best birthday. The interior of Isidora's provides all the distraction you need, and the grounds are well-groomed. What a place!
4.8 on May 27, 2013
I had a very peaceful stay, will definitely visit again.
4.8 on March 03, 2013
My husband and I had a very nice experience at Isadora's. Darrell was extremely nice and he gave us a lot of interesting information about the house, previous owners and some of their renovation. The price was excellent and breakfast was top notch!
5 on November 24, 2012
Darrell and Deb are amazing hosts! We enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it!
5 on September 30, 2012
Darrell's cooking abilties are wonderful, a differenet breakfast everyday. Thank you! The complete experience was a memory to cherish.! Thanks

Everything was PERFECT for our wedding night! Will be back when we can fully enjoy! Amazing setting!
5 on September 16, 2012
My husband and I stayed here for our 5th anniversary. We needed to stay close to home, Sussex, but didn't want to spend the money required to stay at the B & B's in Cedarburg. This little charmer is the place to go! We enjoyed a day in Cedarburg strolling and shopping, then checked into Isadora's around 4pm. Dinner at the Brewery in West Bend and the farmer's market Saturday morning was just the little get away we were looking for. Our hosts were kind, gracious and friendly. We don't espcially like eatting with strangers, but the breakfast was fabulous and the other guests were quite fun to visit with. We will stay here again, FOR SURE! Dinner at Cafe Soeurrete or the Poplar Inn is highly recommended for a more formal Saturday night dinner.
5 on September 05, 2012
The rooms were comfortable and beautifully decorated. Beakfast was home made and delicious. The owners were friendly and welcoming. Great stay all around!
5 on September 04, 2012
The friendly greeting of the innkeeper was the start of our wonderful stay. The room was beautiful, breakfast was delicious, the coffee was fabulous, and the Victorian-era wedding dresses were a joy to behold.
5 on August 14, 2012
Stay here if you ever have the chance! This was the best B&B I have ever stayed in!
4.8 on August 13, 2012
Darrell and Deb were great innkeepers, going out of their way to meet our needs. The breakfasts were delicious and enormous, and the desserts were like a meal in themselves. We stayed in the Arbor Rose room; the hot tub was wonderful to come back to after a long day out and about. We will definitely be staying here again!
5 on July 26, 2012
Darrell and Deb have clearly restored the Stephen B Mayer House and honored his wife Isadora with their own heart and soul. It is both a trip back in time and an experience of modern comfort and beauty. The gardens are spectacular!

The decor really made me feel that my grandmother would come around the corner at any time! Last year I stayed at the Pfister, but didn't feel the warmth.

4.8 on May 09, 2012
We were enjoying a gift certificate from a friend, and enjoyed getting away for a night, to Isadora's in West Bend... Deb & Darrell were extremely hospitable, the sit-down breakfast was delicious AND Victorian fancy, and the room we were in was very comfortable and spacious! Highly recommended!!
4.8 on April 17, 2012
Being old house lovers, and now living in a newer home, we received our "old house fix" by relaxing in the serene and welcoming Isadora's B & B. With great attention to Victorian decor and wonderful service, we felt as though we had stepped back in time. The fabulous breakfast completed our get away, and we left feeling refreshed and pampered.
5 on December 20, 2011
The room was simply beautiful and created a peaceful atmosphere. Enjoyed the breakfasts in the lovely dining room. The entire decor was a creation of yesteryear. The history of the home and it's original owners was detailed through photos and memorbilia. Such a peaceful atmosphere. Wonderful hospitality!

The best B&B I've ever stayed at. Beautifully decorated house with exquisite attention to detail. Gracious hosts that always made me feel welcome.
4.8 on October 04, 2011
Isadora's was a great get-away in a lovely setting. I would recommend this B&B to friends without hesitation.
5 on September 21, 2011
We were very happy with our recent stay at Isadora's Bed and Breakfast. The inn was exactly as represented, charming and lovely in every way, but with all of the modern conveniences too. The breakfast was delicious, and our innkeepers were very attentive and friendly. Would definitely recommend.
4.4 on September 21, 2011
Our stay at Isadora's Bed and Breakfast was our first B&B experience and a very fantastic one. Darrell and Deb were so inviting. The room has a enclosed sun porch, which made a comfortable place to sit and read, watch the sun rise, and have a glass of wine over conversation. The attached bathroom was so convenient. We definitely stop and visit again sometime.
5 on August 29, 2011
The hosts were very delightful, extras such as a treat laid out in the evening, a wonderful breakfast, and the sunporch with the room made this a fabulous experience.
4.6 on August 28, 2011
Our son and his family live in West Bend and we were visiting from Ohio. Not to put a strain on the capacity of his home, we chose this B&B close by and it worked out very well. Our hosts were very friendly, helpful, and great breakfast! Will likely do it again.

My husband and I had an enjoyable and relaxing stay at Isadora's. The Country Rose room was comfortable and allowed us a good night's sleep.

So nice and ecsentric my husband loved the place it was for his fathers day I took him there...lol
4.4 on August 03, 2011
My husband and I were in West Bend visiting and were originially planning on staying in a hotel. We decided to give this a try because it was so close to our family's house and, with breakfast, was a better deal than a hotel. I'm so glad we did. The French Nook room is adorable (may be a little tight if you are very tall like we are) and the food is fantastic. The complementary beverage collection (including hot cocoa!) was very helpful. We even brought our family by to see the awesome architecture/classic decor of the house.
4.4 on July 27, 2011
I was upgraded upon arrival to room on second floor, due to record high temperatures outside, as they were concerned about me being too warm. They held the lower price for the three day visit. The breakfasts were amazing - bone china, silver utensils, pitchers of ice water, orange juice, and cream for my excellent decaf coffee. A croissant souffle baked with fresh strawberries , served hot and delicious. A broiled sectioned grapefruit with brown sugar topping. A "breakfast banana split" on cut glass crescent dish, bananas cut lengthwise with topping of yogurt & sliced fresh strawberries. Hot, fresh muffins (cranberry nut, banana nut); crisp sugared bacon (brown sugar, mustard, red wine); these are just random samples of the delicious fare. I know you don't want effusive praise, but how not?? The room and bathroom and closet were exactly as pictured above, and sitting room with library was accented with beautiful antique wedding dresses, vintage lamps, dvd's, magazines, and books galore! I was a princess for three unforgettable days. My nephew took pictures of the perennial gardens outside to assist in planning for his new home. Would recommend to anyone who wants to be pampered in an exquisite environment.
4.8 on June 06, 2011
The host and hostess were very attentive. The room called 'the French Nook' was very comfortable. Bathrooms were extra clean. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Beautiful antique b&b with great service and accommodation, we WILL be back!

Delightful stay at Isadora's. The home and its furnishings would rival any museum of the Victorian era. The setting was exquisite. Breakfast was freshly made and very tasty. Thanks to Darrell and Deb for sharing their historic home.

This was our third stay at Isadora's. Always comfortable, excellent breakfast. We love staying during the holidays, it's elegant victorian decor is especially lovely.
