Brambleberry is a real Wisconsin bed and breakfast that has been named one of the state's best eco-elegant inns by the Wisconsin Department of Tourism. Wisconsin's most affordable, romantic country weekend getaway is a one-of-a-kind destination in itself. Our romantic English/Scottish country manor inspired home has all the charm of a small English country house hotel and provides couples with a blissfully comfortable, intimate, sanctuary retreat in which to relax and reconnect. (No children or pets allowed.)
A whole other world away, Brambleberry has English farm ambiance, complete with the pastoral view of grazing sheep and Scottish Highland cattle.
All guests are welcome to a free wine tasting during winery hours.
We're also the perfect place for that special anniversary, short vacation, murder mystery evening with your friends or a wedding night. We accept bookings for Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. The B&B is closed Monday through Thursday nights.
Our affordable rates range from $99 to $189, depending on room amenities. All five of our charming guest rooms have private, attached bathrooms. Our Wedgwood and Vineyard rooms are able to accommodate three guests. Whether you're looking for an inexpensive clean room with comfortable bed or an intimate, romantic retreat with double whirlpool, fireplace, luxurious canopy bed, satellite TV, DVD player and movies, we've got it.
Brambleberry is so much more than a typical Wisconsin bed and breakfast. We are a leader in Wisconsin agritourism. We raise Scottish Highland cattle, Scottish Blackface and Suffolk sheep, pigs, chickens and field crops. There are plenty of cute lambs for guests to visit and pet. Here's a video of a lamb being born. Organic produce, a home orchard, small vineyard and maple syrup production are also part of our diverse Wisconsin farm bed and breakfast operation. Because we are a licensed and bonded winery, guests may only consume alcohol they bring with them in their guest rooms.
Experience the peace and quiet of our private nature trails. Peruse our book and video library and munch on a treat of buttery Scottish shortbread. Visit our winery for a free tasting from noon to 7. The winery closes at 7 p.m. Our special home-cooked, full breakfast -- which always includes at least one item grown or produced here on the farm -- is the highlight of an enjoyable stay.
From November through March, B&B guests can even make arrangements to have dinner at the inn. Brambleberry is one of only two Wisconsin B&Bs that offers dinner to guests. During the summer and fall months, pizzas, cheese plates and light snacks are available in the winery until 7 p.m Saturday. The B&B dining room is not open to the general public. Separate reservations for the scheduled Saturday night dinner need to be made by noon Wednesday (before we grocery shop) if you wish to participate. Check out our dinner page for the menu schedule.
During the growing season, Brambleberry serves more organic produce grown on site than any other Wisconsin bed and breakfast. Guests can literally be "in touch" with their food source. We also sell individual cuts of grass-fed Scottish Highland beef and Scottish Blackface lamb.
