Fall is the perfect time for a romantic getaway, and a bed & breakfast is the perfect place to get cozy for a special weekend away! Whether you and your sweetie want to enjoy a charming oasis in the heart of downtown or enjoy a calming getaway in a nearby village, Milwaukee has a B&B that will make your heart flutter.
 
Experience Milwaukee’s Irish hospitality at County Clare Inn & Pub. This cozy getaway is in easy walking distance of much of downtown Milwaukee’s popular attractions, from the lakefront festival grounds to the nightlife and shopping of Brady Street. Guests will enjoy complimentary breakfast, parking in a private lot and a luxurious double whirlpool bathtub. The on-site pub and restaurant is the perfect place to end your evening with Irish cuisine and live music every weekend.
 
Just minutes away from downtown, enjoy the romance of the Victorian era at Manderley Bed & Breakfast. The stunning cream city brick Queen Anne Mansion features much of the style of the era with six fireplaces, intricate woodwork, stained glass windows and hand-painted walls. Stay in one of four rooms and dine on handmade breakfasts that feature vegetables from the on-site vegetable garden and even eggs from the backyard chickens!
 
The historic Schuster Mansion Bed & Breakfast is still a testament to the past; your stay includes a guided tour of the mansion’s many stories and treasures. A sumptuous custom homemade breakfast will help you rise in the morning, and fresh baked cookies alongside tea and coffee in the Butler’s Pantry is the perfect snack. For the full experience, make sure to reserve a place at the mansion’s famous Victorian High Tea.
 
Located in charming, historic Cedarburg, the Washington House Inn was originally built in 1886. It served as an inn until the 1920s and was renovated and returned to its original purpose in 1984. Since then, it has served as an elegant, romantic retreat for visitors to Cedarburg. A variety of unique rooms are available for your getaway, including majestic two-level suites. A deluxe continental breakfast can be enjoyed in your own room or in the Gathering Room, and a complimentary wine and cheese social hour is hosted each afternoon.
 
Just a short drive outside the city, you’ll find the beautifully restored Westphal Mansion Inn Bed & Breakfast nestled amongst the scenic beauty of the Kettle Moraine region. Enjoy the charming Old World atmosphere in eight suites, each bearing the name of a great literary figure, alongside modern luxury. The Westphal Mansion Inn is known for elegant four-course breakfasts that feature the best of local farm fresh produce during summer and fall. You’ll also enjoy a complimentary wine and cheese social hour each evening and fresh baked cookies.
