The schuster mansion is a delightful B&B.It's like a mini vacation from the grapples of the city. When you step into the mansion it's like stepping into a time portal to the rich past of history. I'M enjoy my stay and would definitely be back.

Everything I was hoping for and more.

I can't say enough about my stay at the Schuster Mansion. Rick and Laura Sue could not have been more helpful and friendly. My room was clean, cozy, and quiet. Breakfast was delicious! I look forward to staying with you the next time I come to Milwaukee. Therese

Autumn at Schuster

We learned a lot of history about Milwaukee and also the beer industry. Easy access to downtown. Beautiful building and furnishings and exceptionally friendly host and hostess.

Trip back in time!

The mansion is wonderful and the rooms are decorated in Victorian style. It's like a trip back in time. The host are a bit like old hippies. Didn't have much to say to them as I'm a conservative. They were very attentive though. Now for a little advice. Check out google maps street view first to see what the neighborhood looks like. Some people may not feel comfortable in such a run down neighborhood. Check out the crime rate so you know not to walk around at night.

5 Stars for The Schuster Mansion

5 on February 06, 2013

It's hard to overstate how much my wife & I enjoyed our 2-night stay at the Schuster Mansion. The mansion itself is a majestic Victorian structure - just like the pictures. The inside has been beautifully decorated throughout in furnishings and colors consistent with the era in which the home was built. We stayed in the Pias suite which was wonderfully decorated. Particularly enjoyable was the four-poster bed with canopy. But we took a quick peek at 3 or 4 other suites and each was carefully finished and decorated. We were impressed with how clean and dust-free the entire home felt which is no small feat for a house of this size. The breakfasts were excellent. Not mere Continental-type breakfasts but full, satisfying breakfasts beautifully presented on fine china. We especially enjoyed being served breakfast in the sunny alcove with glass ceilings. Laura Sue and Rick are great hosts. They are present and helpful whenever needed but not hovering or over-bearing when not. The suites and mansion floor plan make it feel like if it's privacy you're looking for it's easily achieved. All-in-all it was a great experience and we're so glad that Laura Sue and Rick are restoring such a beautiful, historic home and then sharing it with the public.

Short Stay

We were only there for a night stay, and had to leave before having the chance to enjoy breakfast, but it was a nice house...bit pricey but if you like the Victorian era this is a great place!

Great place to stay.

Stayed here only one night and in the smallest room. A comfortable bed and great decor. A most excellent breakfast was served. It was a Sunday night and very quiet in this neighborhood. Would recommend it to all when staying in the area.

The best B&B in Milwaukee

5 on May 25, 2012

Stayed from May 19 to May 22, first leg of a journey to Wisconsin Dells. The Schuster really is one of the nicest B&Bs I've ever stayed in. Rooms are charming and comfortable, you have access to the kitchen, the chocolate chip cookies (fresh every day) are to die for. Breakfast was excellent every morning we were there. Most importantly, the hosts are quite delightful. They obviously care about their guests and do everything they can to make your stay enjoyable. I look forward to returning.

Excellent B&B

We enjoy looking at vintage houses, and thought that Schusters Mansion would be a great place to stay. It was love at first sight! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay-from our accomodations in the Pias Suite to breakfast the next morning! We would definitely stay here again if our travels bring us to Milwaukee.

excellent stay

a wonderful house with a great staff of owners, plus a corgi! how can you go wrong with a corgi? breakfast was outstanding and the proprietess was very informative about the local area. got a random upgrade, which is always welcome. i do have to admit that we paid a bit more for our one night than i have at other b&b's, but not by a large amount. would stay again.
