Get Cozy at our Wisconsin Bed and Breakfast This Winter

Wintertime is one of the coziest times to visit our Wisconsin Bed and Breakfast. And there are so many outdoor activities to enjoy in the snow right nearby our Inn at Devil’s Lake State Park and beyond. After a day playing in our winter wonderland, there’s no better place to retreat to for a cozy fire, warm beverages, and quiet time together. The blanket of white surrounding the Ringling House makes it feel even more romantic.

Our Wisconsin Bed and Breakfast has a rich history within the Baraboo WI community. Charles Ringling, one of the five famed siblings, built this Georgian Revival structure as his home in 1901. Today, after updates and remodeling, you’ll find we’ve tastefully kept all of the historical ambiance paired with modern amenities to accommodate the wants of needs of today’s guests. From the moment you step foot into this impressive mansion, you’ll feel transported to a different era.

If you’re heading to our Wisconsin Bed and Breakfast with romance in mind, each of our six guest suites pays tribute to an extraordinary love story within the Ringling Family. Named after these famed couples, you’ll find our rooms the perfect place to rekindle or nourish a relationship with your special someone. Join us this winter for a lovely getaway to Baraboo WI, for a peaceful retreat. Check our availability and book today!
