Guests love that no passport is required for this Wisconsin getaway adventure.

Our Guest Said: "Repeat Customers"...December 16, 2013 My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon six years ago. We recently stayed again for our 6 year anniversary. We reserved the same suite, and it was just as wonderful as the first time! We won't wait six years to go back again!

Perhaps you always wanted to travel to a tropical island!

Today, the pleasure of plush carpet is sure to beat a walk through the sand! Be on the inside track down at this seashore, and soak in the two-person whirlpool washing your cares away in this lush tropical area under your private palm tree. A wicker couch is also beach side next to your private bathhouse. Retire with tropical vines lofting down from the vaulted ceiling in this secluded, but spacious tropical paradise.

Even if it is a chilly evening, the warmth from the fireplace makes the suite glow with an exotic ambiance. We offer a no sunburn guarantee from that heat wave!

Petit Chateau Suite

+

Bonjour! Welcome to Paris and the Petit Chateau Suite for your Wisconsin honeymoon.

Our Guest Said: "Outstanding hospitality"...June 16, 2013 We stayed in the Petit Chateau Suite for our 27th wedding anniversary. The atmosphere was welcoming and informative of the buildings history which we are big fans of. The food was original and well-balanced. The bathroom was elegant and impeccably clean which was also a plus for us. It was an enjoyable stay and wanted to move in :) 

The warmth just radiates in this Le francais suite as one enters on the original refinished pine wood flooring with complimentary large room area rugs. The lights are dimmed, the glow from the burning fireplace and the music with tributes from the city of romance only add to the perfection of an evening in Paris. Escape to the city of love at this inn for a panache experience that rivals a luxury hotel stay and is definitely oooo-la-la!

The decor in this room takes its cues from the sunny side of design with beautiful honey and golden hues accented with fleur-de-lis designs. Monsieur or Mademoiselle may relax on the French country-style love seat by the fireplace or melt stress away in the two-person, vintage-style whirlpool. So romantic for a Wisconsin honeymoon! Feel the drama in this suite: the rich black wrought iron head board on the king size canopy bed (or two extra long twins) and the Eiffel Tower with all its majesty and glamour both anchor the room opposite the floor to ceiling bay windows.

Included is a private sidewalk cafe style breakfast nook with a view of the city and an opportunity to plan a day of adventures in the Fox Valley. Au Revoir and Merci for visiting us during your Appleton, Wisconsin travels. Monday - Thursday $179.99 per night Friday - Sunday $189.99 per night

Primavera Room

+

The Primavera Room, which means Spring, can be your "new beginning" any time of year at our inn!

Our Guest Said: "Great place to relax."...February 26, 2013 My husband and I went to the Franklin Inn on Durkee for a weekend getaway. It was our first time at a B & B and it exceeded our expectations. Judy, the owner, was very welcoming and was a fantastic cook. Breakfast was delicious. The room was clean and comfortable. We will hopefully be able to enjoy time there in the future.

Include a fantasy trip to Italy when planning your Wisconsin romantic vacation! When in Italy, do as the Italians do! Let us recommend the best of Italian dining here in the Fox Valley. After Italian cuisine, return to your "Little Italy" to a private balcony, private bath, and queen-size four-poster bed beside a wall mural of beautiful Italy. Buon Giomo. Share a toast over a goblet of Chianti wine tonight.

The Tuscany wall mural draws you deep into the Italiano countryside amidst the vineyards. The purple Venetian plaster wall and the plush area rug with the grape cluster border design evokes elegance accented by the carefully selected Italiano artwork and sculptures. A quick stop to admire the Leaning Tower of Pisa is actually your private attached bath. Signor or Signorina should take time to discover the private Romeo & Juliet balcony for late night star gazing. Listen, the sound of music inhabits your room.

Why it is "An Evening in Tuscany" from the musical CD of favorites from this enchanting region to enhance the romantic Italiano mood tonight. Surely one will drift away with dreams of Italy tonight. Arise to the aroma of your delicious home-cooked full breakfast and grape juice to drink, if you wish! We offer a room service option for a romantic and delicious breakfast for two on the balcony, weather permitting or in the room. Buon appetitio. Arrivederci until we greet you next time!
