This place was fantastic. Felt spacious yet cozy. The rooms were a great size and great bathrooms with everything you would need. Felt very taken care of and comfortable.

Our stay at Karen's was wonderful, we felt safe and taken care of yet but given plenty of privacy. Beautiful place and pool was a bonus!

My new husband and I owe the wild success of our wedding weekend to John and Karen at Ye Old Manor House. This house endlessly interesting and packed with amenities, and the hosts are thoughtful and attentive beyond measure. We were able to put up all 20 wedding guests (including my husband and I) at the B&B for a long weekend, which provided the perfect balance of intimacy and togetherness. We were able to use John and Karen’s charcoal grill and kitchen, which saved us from the hassle and cost of eating out. We made full use of their fabulous pool (with pool towels!) and garden spaces, and I regret not spending more time around their unique outdoor fireplace. Karen was always quick to respond to my messages, and anticipated our needs beautifully. The breakfasts were phenomenal; from gluten free options and real maple syrup to garden-grown vegetables and herbs, I was consistently impressed. 5 stars is honestly not a high enough rating for Ye Old Manor House- we are already planning to return for our anniversary next year!

You can't find hosts that are nicer than Karen and John. They did an amazing job making us feel at home and simply relax and enjoy our time. They gave us our space when we needed it, and were available at all the right times. We rented the entire 8 BR home, which is huge, and it really felt like our home even if it was just for one night. We held a bachelor party there and despite the difficulty in hosting ten guys in their late 20s / early 30s, Karen and John did so without any difficulty. There was never a concern with noise, and they provided so many helpful items to make our stay extraordinary. For example, they provided us with top of the line BBQ tools so we could use their great charcoal grill. They provided us with plates and cups so we didn't have to buy our own. They set up a volleyball net and provided us with a ball so we can play on the lawn. I just can't stress enough to what great lengths Karen and John went to make our stay amazing and simply unforgettable. I would recommend staying at their place for any occasion, whether it's a huge family reunion, bachelor/bachelorette party, or even just a couple's retreat. Simply amazing.

Stayed at Ye Olde Manor House with my entire family for my mom's birthday. We had the house to ourselves and we felt very comfortable and at home. Every room was impeccably clean and the b&b itself was decorated with such detail. I can't imagine how they put the place together and maintain it, but they do a great job! I guess that's where their passion really comes through, in the decor, in the food and in their hospitality. Thank you so much for a weekend my mom will never forget!!

What a great stay! We stayed here for our weekend - office outing. It was a group of 13 of us and we had a BLAST! The food was so delicious. The hosts were gracious and welcoming. The home is charming and artistic. We enjoyed our stay and will be back.

As a group of 13, we spent a weekend at this beautiful cozy house for a weekend. Karen and John are really good hosts! The amount of food at the breakfast was definitely more than enough, and I guess what is more important - they were super delicious! We spent few hours the night we arrived at the heated pool, and it was definitely a lot of fun! This house has everything you need for a getaway weekend! Definitely recommended!

Karen User ProfileKaren is a superhost.

I grew up in Chicago where I lived until I moved to the east coast to go to college and graduate school. After grad school I moved to New York City where I lived and worked for 22 years. During those 22 years I worked in academia, philanthropy and in the non-profit sector and met my husband. In 2007 we purchased a bed and breakfast and relocated to Elkhorn, WI. We also started a vegan food product company, the Elegant Vegan. I love traveling to Italy and reading conspiracy theory novels. Our guests come as strangers but leave as friends.
