Travelers are always looking for memorable and relaxing experiences. Let’s discover more through the words of our innkeepers. Many thanks to Kay Rodewald for sharing her own secrets with BBOnline.com! Why do most travelers stay at your inn?
There are a lot of reasons why our guests come and stay with us. We have been in business for 25 years so a lot of our guests enjoy the area so much that they come back year after year. They stay with us when they are coming to our area to bike and hike our near-by trails, and to enjoy our beautiful beach.
What are you best known for? What makes your inn unique? What do you love most about your inn?
I would say we are known for the quiet peaceful surroundings of a quaint community along Lake Michigan.We are the only bed and breakfast in Two Rivers. So if guests are looking or an accommodation that will offer them a complete personalized customer service experience in a beautifully restored historic property, that would be us. The architectural style of the house is called a Shingle Style house. We have a blend of Mission and Victorian in the detailing of the house. Stained glass windows, quarter sawn oak woodwork, and window seats to mention a few. Plus my new kitchen just recently renovated.
If someone has never been to your city, what is the #1 reason to come visit?
If they are looking for a quiet get-a-way where they do not have to put up with crowds, traffic, or waiting in lines, this is the place.
What’s the best compliment you have ever received about the inn?
When I get guests that tell me that they have staying at bed and breakfast for years, and ours ranks as one of the best they have stayed in.
What’s the best kept secret about the area?
Our beautiful sugar sand beach at our local Neshotah Park in Two Rivers, WI along the sun-spangled shores of Lake Michigan.
If a traveler is staying at your inn for 4 nights, what should he/she do in the area?
They should bring their bikes or you can rent bikes in the area. The first day they can bike into Point Beach State Park along the Rawley Point Trail. Spend the day on the beach and bike back. 12 miles round trip. The second day they can bike south towards Manitowoc along the Mariner’s Trail stopping off at the Hamilton Wood Type Museum, the Wisconsin Maritime Museum and the Rahr West Art Museum along the way. Again a 12 mile round trip. The third day you can walk to our downtown area to explore Schroeder’s Department Store which has been in our community for over 125 years. Then continue over the bridge to Neshotah Park for a little more beach time relaxation. The fourth day, you could hike one of the sections of the Ice Age Trail that goes through our community. The Ice Age Trail is a 1200 mile national hiking trail that goes through Wisconsin following the path of the glacier that flowed through the state . Or, if you are a birder, you would enjoy going to Woodland Dunes Nature Center and explore the boardwalks looking for waterfowl along the river.
Is there anything within walking distance of your inn?
Yes, we are within walking distance to the downtown, our beach areas and several restaurants.
What is your favorite restaurant/food in the area?
The Courthouse Pub is always excellent for a great meal. I also like the ribs and sandwiches at Kurtz’s Pub and Deli.
