How exciting! Did you hear that Brayton Bed and Breakfast was nominated for Best Wisconsin B&B’s for Ice Fishing?

We are so honored! I mean we know we live in this great city where we are surrounded by beautiful lakes and architecture, but to be nominated! What an privilege! Check out some of the other B&B’s in Wisconsin that were nominated along with us but also for skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling.



MERRILL, Wis. (February 7, 2013) – For those of hardy stock – and really, who doesn’t that describe in the Midwest – the idea of cross-country skiing, snowshoeing or snowmobiling out the front door is the ideal.  Now take that notion and apply it to a winter getaway. While the front door for most hotels and resorts leads to the parking lot, at many Wisconsin B&Bs the front door leads you to the great outdoors. A quick survey of Wisconsin inns produced a slew of ideas for travelers who like to take in the fresh winter air.  So, in the spirit of the film and music awards season, we bring you nominees for “best of” in the following categories:

Best Wisconsin B&Bs for Cross Country Skiing

  • The Justin Trails B&B in Sparta deserves the lifetime achievement award for winter sports of all sorts, but especially for cross country skiing. They have a 10K trail on their property groomed for both striding and skating styles of skiing, and you can literally ski out the back door of the inn.
  • At Apple Tree Lane B&B in Waupaca, enjoy a hearty breakfast, then go for a brisk ski on the property, in that order so advises the owner.  Warm up at the outdoor fire pit with hot chocolate after.
  • Another strong nominee is Eagle Centre House in Eagle, given their proximity to Lapham Peak park in the Kettle Moraine State Forest with nearly 20 miles of trails of which 2.5 miles are lighted for night skiing.
  • Other inns with cross country skiing right on property include www.WisconsinBandB.com.
