The Badger Den Gets a Make-Over

Well, it’s sad to say, but the Badger Den’s University of Wisconsin Badger Theme wasn’t a hit with the ladies.  Yes, the guys really liked it, especially with all the UW memorabilia, but it’s the gals that make the decision on the room, right?  So, in listening to our guests, we have given the Badger Den a make-over – and so far comments are favorable! There’s still the beautiful, large bath with a claw tub & a separate shower, and the room still has the great pasture view and window seat along with a fireplace and large flatscreen TV – so it’s a win-win for the guys and the gals.

Making Homemade Maple Syrup

A specialty of the Speckled Hen Inn Bed and Breakfast is our breakfast feasts. We always provide our guests with fresh eggs from our wonderful hens, seasonal fruits or vegetables from the property, fresh baked goods, and homemade entrée creations that just make a heart happy. Many locals will travel around the state to find excellent maple syrup but we are fortunate to have acreage populated with Silver Maple trees growing along the creek, the required equipment and the personal motivation spurred by a passion for quality.
