Sweet Autumn Inn

1019 S. Main St. , Lake Mills, WI 53551 USA (Show map)


Built in 1910 this classic four square features craftsman style architecture and landscaped grounds. Each guestroom has a queen size bed, fireplace and private bathroom with hairdryers, robes & slippers. We are located one block from the Glacial Drumlin recreation trail and easy walking distance to "legendary" Rock Lake. Lake Mills Golf course is right across the street and downtown shops are just blocks away. Relax on our large veranda or by the goldfish pond with a glass of wine or lemonade. Wake up to the delicious aroma of coffee and fresh-baked pastry, followed by fresh fruit and a gourmet breakfast entree.

A quaint place to stay

4.8 on August 22, 2016

Teri was a terrific hostess. She welcomed us into her home. She had details of what to do, eat and drink establishments at her fingertips. The rooms were well apportioned and comfortable. She was very accommodating. The breakfast she served the next morning was outstanding. We were sorry we could only stay there for one night.

A lovely respite

Our 3-day stay produced 3 outstanding breakfasts, 3 pleasant days and 3 comfortable nights. We remained close to " home " for all 3 days. There were 2 beaches very close by, a variety of restaurants, a large archaeological site and a new outlet mall. This was our second stay here.

Great location

our second time around at SAI. Terri does an outstanding job. The rooms are so warm and welcoming, clean, comfortable, and gave us the perfect setting to turn our lives off for a night. Our only regret is that we didn't stay for 2 nights! Her breakfast is out of bounds good and delicious from start to finish. We'll be back soon!

Couldn't possible be better!

Awesome Sweet Autumn Inn

I loved my stay at Sweet Autumn Inn! My room was decorated in a classy nautical, lighthouse theme. The bed was very comfy. The house is beautiful and everywhere you turn there is something new to discover. The owner, Teri, is so gracious, personable, and very knowledgeable about the area. She prepared a scrumptious breakfast that met my dietary restrictions. I will definitely stay three again.
