Private, Romantic & Loaded with Amenities
Although the building dates to 1884, our guest suites are far from outdated. Dr. Thorsen and his wife Dianna worked for years partially restoring the second floor which is now John and Deb’s Place. When we purchased the building in late 2013, all the walls had been replastered and wallpapered. Three bathrooms were all decorated with marble floors and all had jacuzzi tubs installed. Other than that we had a wide open canvas to create the most luxurious lodging experience that Shullsburg has to offer. We installed a whole house water filtration system, water softeners and a large enough reserve hot water tank that there should never be a cold shower (unless you need one of course). These suites are huge. 12 foot ceilings and 9 foot windows add to the grandness. Even with king size beds, mini fridges and other furnishings, there is plenty of room to stretch out, do some yoga or even have an in-suite massage.
Privacy will never be an issue. Our suites are located in completely opposite corners of our 2000 square foot guest house. Both have foyers who’s solid hardwood doors can be closed for added solitude. Children are welcome and can be accommodated when the Hideaway Suite is rented for a small additional fee. However to assure our other guests (who may be looking for a child free stay) complete satisfaction, when traveling with children, the suite will not have access to the common areas or common bath.
Modern amenities meet old world charm. Keeping the historic feel is very important to us. That is the most attractive part about the city of Shullsburg. We do love our new world technology though and have found that others do as well. This is why we have strived to balance the two. It’s kinda cool looking through the original wavy leaded glass windows while sipping a cup of tea from your Kuerig machine and surfing the web on our wireless internet.
