Two Great Wisconsin State Parks to Explore Near our B&B

There are two great Wisconsin State Parks to explore within 15 minutes of our Wisconsin Bed and Breakfast. With a world of outdoor activities to choose from! You could spend weeks with us and still not accomplish all there is to do here in Baraboo. And sure, you could camp at these Wisconsin State Parks, but why not have these amazing wilderness activities during the day, paired with an elegant and warm stay at the Ringling House Bed and Breakfast?

Devil’s Lake State Park is Wisconsin’s most popular State Park with more than 3 million visitors each year. When you stay at our B&B, it’s only a quick 10 minute drive to all the action. You’ll find beautiful beaches and swimming areas, boat rentals, and hiking trails. For the most adventurous there’s some amazing and daring rock climbing. For those who prefer keeping both feet on the ground, birdwatching is an excellent past time at this Wisconsin State Park.

Additionally, Mirror Lake State Park is only a 15 minute jaunt just north of our Wisconsin Bed and Breakfast. The 137-acre lake is the centerpiece. Due to the high sandstone rock sides, the lake is shielded from the wind, creating a smooth, glassy surface. Perfect for a quiet kayaking excursion, swimming on the sandy shores, and exploring the forests in the surrounding area.

On a stay at our Baraboo Inn you’ll be surrounded by the beauty of these Wisconsin State Parks and still have the luxury of a cozy suite and pristine bath at our Bed and Breakfast. The historic Inn creates a lovely atmosphere with antique appointments, rich historical connections, and home cooked meals shared in our dining room. We can’t wait to host you; book your room today!  Continue reading

The Best Birdwatching Near our Wisconsin Bed and Breakfast

On any trip out to the Baraboo area of Wisconsin, exploring the natural beauty of this part of the country is a must. Birdwatching is a wonderful way to feel like a part of nature, not to mention, it’s a quiet, relaxing and calming pastime out in the fresh air. And we can all use a little bit more of that in our lives these days.

According to the Audubon Society, Wisconsin is a great birding state due to its forests, wetlands and lake shorelines. Baraboo Hills is known as a birdwatching hotspot due to the hardwood forests that grow around ancient rock formations. This is the perfect landscape for safe nesting. Many varieties of Warblers, Cuckoos and Woodpeckers call the area home, and if you’re super lucky you might catch sight of a Peregrine Falcon.

Our Wisconsin Bed and Breakfast is only 10 minutes from Devil’s Lake State Park, a very popular birdwatching destination. More than 100 species of birds nest in the park and during migration season that number goes up immensely. We’re also in the vicinity to many other main birdwatching areas—this guarantees some successful sightings and nature outings when you stay at our Wisconsin Inn. Start planning and book with us today! Continue reading
