Original Ringling Furniture in Music Room.

We received a very special gift today.  The gilded mirror that originally went over the fireplace mantle in the music room at the Ringling House Bed & Breakfast, had been on display at the Al Ringling Mansion here in Baraboo, WI.   Joe Colossa has generously loaned  the mirror to us from the Ringling family collection so it could be displayed again in its original home.  To confirm our thoughts that this mirror belongs here, were the holes in the fireplace mantle for the dowel fittings in the mirror – a perfect fit!

Shown from left to right are the guys working to get it up above the mantle, Stuart Koehler, Richard Bennett, and Joe Colossa.

Doesn’t it look great in front of the Ringlings Steinway Grand, on loan from the Ringling family collection?

Thank you so much Joe and Rich!

 

First Customers Today!

So today, our first customers arrived, as wide eyed as we did when we first did our walk through with the house!  We have  been working really hard to get the bedrooms ready for our guests, and the work paid off today with some excited and happy customers.   We have a big evolving vision for this place, and want to make enhancements to this place every year!

It gives us a sense of satisfaction and enjoyment to share this house and the history behind it with others.  I hope you can come and stay sometime!

Julie & Stu

 

Open July 10th!

Our tentative open date was June 15th, which has come and gone.   Oh boy, what a journey!    We will have three rooms open on July 10th, with finishing touches being put on the newly added bathrooms in the other three rooms.  We are looking to get one bathroom done a week so we will be open for a full house by the big circus parade weekend on July 25th!  Book your stay now!

The outside of the house is being painted is being painted by Culvers painting, who by the way, is doing a fantastic job.   The house is getting back to it’s former glory!   We will be posting some before and after photos when the work is finished.

We are so looking forward to sharing this great house with our guests in the near future!
