Bed and Breakfast vs. Hotels

February 9, 2011 by braytonbb

Many people ask us why they would want to stay at a bed and breakfast rather than a hotel since we don’t give “priority points”.
We tell them this. Though we don’t give points we do give you many amenities that hotels cannot offer.

Our KEY COMPLIMENTARY offerings:

*Full homemade breakfast in the morning at the time you choose either in your room or in the dining room next to a cozy fireplace.
*Weekend afternoon wine and cheese
*Homemade desserts every evening
*Refreshments
*WIFI
*Concierge services
*Parking

In addition to the Brayton Bed and Breakfast experience:

*Gracious and attentive service.
*Unique downtown destination that provides you with plentiful shopping, dining, museums, parks and a beautiful riverwalk – all within walking distance.
*Luxurious rooms
*Private bath, some with soaking tubs
*Premium bath amenities, towels and linens
*Plush robes and slippers in our suites
*Same price if not less than your boutique or high end hotels.

We think the choice is clear. Come see for yourself.

DeYoung and Friedrich wedding

September 29, 2010 by braytonbb

This wedding over Labor Day was truly incredible. The bride Johanna residing in Virginia planned this special weekend for her family and friends who were wonderful. Each guest had  their own play book so everyone knew what was going on every minute of each day.  It was orchestrated like nothing I had ever seen.  I had the pleasure to get to know so many amazing people. Lunch was served with mimosas and a trolley came to pick the girls up to take them to the Paine.

4th of July on the pontoon with guests – I mean friends

August 28, 2010 by braytonbb

We had a wonderful time taking the pontoon out on Lake Winnebago for the Sawdust Days Fireworks on July 3rd. The lake a was a little choppy, but once we settled in the bay it was calm and beautiful all night.We had the opportunity to get together with some past guests that stayed with us again this year that we have become friends with and got to know some new guests who have become friends as well.  Thanks Denise for taking some great pictures.

Brayton Bed & Breakfast

June 19, 2010 by braytonbb

Our home is your home away from home.
Forget about the lace, ruffles, floral patterns and country motif; you won’t find any of that at the Brayton Bed and Breakfast. As you enter through the front door of the Brayton Bed & Breakfast, you walk into a bright and airy four seasons room that begs you to sit and enjoy that early morning cup of coffee at sunrise. Step into the foyer with the curved open staircase and you are greeted with casual elegance and deep rich hues that are present throughout the entire home. The Brayton B&B boasts original architecture inside and out for that feeling of authenticity that you won’t find in any branded hotel. But central air, flat screen TVs, wireless Internet, 800 thread count sheets, Aveda hair care products, and fluffy robes and warm slippers in our suites are proof positive your accommodations are up to date and very comfortable. Four uniquely designed and richly decorated guest rooms with their own private baths cater to every personality.

Anyone for some tasty treats?
Each morning, we serve a complimentary full breakfast in our family dining room. On the weekends, a wine and cheese social is held in late afternoon in the living room, and homemade ooey gooey desserts are served later in the evening.

In the Heart of Oshkosh
The Brayton B&B is conveniently located just a block from Historic Downtown Oshkosh and is a short walking distance to restaurants and events. Whether you are in the mood for a tender, juicy steak, a piping hot pepperoni pizza, gourmet caramel corn, or a piled high sub sandwich, your taste buds can be satisfied within a few blocks of us.

If it is gourmet coffee or that special bottle of wine, you will find it in downtown Oshkosh, along with lots of eclectic stores and boutiques to fit just about every shopping taste. Check out “Things to Do” for a listing of current and upcoming activities in and around Oshkosh.

upgraded pontoon

May 24, 2010 by braytonbb

We upgraded our pontoon this year. It is a little nicer and can seat ten more comfortably.
We took it out for the first time on Sunday (90 degrees) and WOW, was it fun and hot!
We know you would love being out on the lake and stopping in for a cold beverage at one of the many restaurants along the river. Scotty would love to be your captain or just ask him for a few tips and you can be out on your own for the day relaxing in the sun.
We will be taking it out again on Memorial Day, so we will try to get a few pictures of Captain Scotty and the pontoon in the lake.
