Family getaway with a Packer flair

5 on December 05, 2016

This gem of home is complete with the hospitality of the owners Scott and Nicole. Private and welcoming this weekend getaway was our family's Christmas for 2016. The Casa Suite upstairs housed our family of four with an additional 2 friends--everyone enjoyed their time and space. The bedrooms are a retreat in and of itself The bathroom layout was conducive to our family complete w tub and shower and the family area was a perfect hangout while enjoying games movies and delivery pizza. No need to eat out much as Nicole's cooking is 5 stars too -breakfast is made w love and she thoughtfully packed us snacks to go when we rode a bus to the Packer game on Sunday. I'm scrambling to think of the next time I can come back to this area just to stay here. Thanks for an enjoyable and easy weekend getaway!

Innkeeper Response

Stay at Braton B&B

We enjoyed our stay at the beautiful Brayton B&B. Nicole and Scott are very gracious and friendly hosts. We loved our delicious breakfast and comfy clean room. If your in Oshkosh and need a B&B it is your must stop!

26th Anniversary Trip

5 on September 25, 2016

We, the Korkowski's stayed three nights in this beautiful home in mid-September. Nicole and Scott Brayton are easily the most pleasant, giving, informative hosts we have stayed with. By the third day, I felt like was in my own home and it was difficult to leave! They hosted wine and app socials, sat with us and had long, wonderful conversations, and spoiled us with delicious breakfasts. I am already trying to find another reason to travel back to the area just to stay with them!


An Oasis in Osh Kosh

4.8 on September 23, 2016

My wife and I plan our annual "Anniversary Trip" each year and this year, due to some college soccer games for our daughter, we planned a stay in and around the Appleton / Osh Kosh area. After reviewing the online profile for the Brayton B & B in Osh Kosh, we decided to take a chance on it. We could not have been happier. What a well-run establishment, and what great hosts. And Nicole's cooking?...WOW. It's close to downtown, so you can walk to all kinds of restaurants and shops, but such a great place, you almost hate to leave. I'd recommend it to anyone!


Oshkosh Gem

Enjoyed our 2-night stay at this beautiful bed and breakfast. Quiet, comfortable room, great breakfasts. NIcole and Scott enjoy what they do and it is evidenced by the hospitality shown to their guests. If we are back in the area we will return. Thanks, for the wonderful time.


A Small Urban Gem

5 on July 19, 2016

Our stay here was so comfortable and delicious. We have nothing bad to say about this place or the hosts, Nicole & Scott. One of the oldest brick houses in Oshkosh built right after the Civil War (1867) the current furnishings are comfy and hip aka leather and big comfy chairs. Different areas to hang out privately or be social. A sweet backyard space under a pergola surrounded by beautiful sea grasses. Great bed. Would love to able to visit again!


Wonderful!!

This was the most beautiful and relaxing B&B we have ever experienced!! Can't wait to come back, five stars!!


It's ideal!

I can't think of a single thing that could be improved. I even loved the breakfast, and I am not much of a breakfast person.


Felt Like Family

We were met at the door and greeted. Rooms were very well appointed and very comfortable. "Happy hour" with hosts was informative for our stay, and food was very good. Walking distance to town was helpful also.

Signature Dish

Creme Brule French Toast
Two recipes combined into one decadent breakfast. 1 stick of butter, 1 C brown sugar, 2 tsp. corn syrup, 1 loaf of cinnamon bread, 5 large eggs, 1 1/2 C half and half and 1 tsp. of vanilla Streusel topping – 1/4 Brown sugar, 1/2 stick butter, 1/4 C old fashioned oatmeal, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and 1/4 C chopped pecans(optional) Heat 1 stick of butter, 1 C brown sugar and 2 tps. of corn syrup in a small saucepan until it starts to simmer and slightly bubble, stirring occasionally. Pour sugar mixture into an 8×8 casserole dish. Take 4 pieces of cinnamon bread and lay in the bottom of the 8×8 pan, making them fit. Do this 2 more times so you have 4 stacks of 3 high slices of bread. Mix together the eggs, half and half and vanilla. Pour this over the bread mixture and refrigerate overnight. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Bake for 15 minutes. While baking, mix together the streusel topping. After 15 minutes of baking sprinkle the topping over the bread and bake an additional 10 minutes longer. Serve with strawberry jam on the side.
