Best of the ‘Burbs 2015: Bed and breakfast/inn
Walking Iron Bed & Breakfast, Mazomanie
This Victorian gem gets its name from the town itself; Mazomanie comes from Chief Mazomani, a nineteenth century leader of the Dakota Sioux of Minnesota, and his name translates to “The Iron That Walks” or “Walking Iron.” An Italianate brick house built in 1865, this B&B features a harmonic blend of historic grandeur and modernity after a full-scale restoration by current innkeepers Karisa and Dave Friske. Exquisite plasterwork, elegant wallpaper and vintage furniture seem to turn back the clock, but the wireless Internet and other amenities will remind you of the house’s modern conveniences. Descend into dreamland in one of five rooms, and enjoy a haven of peace and tranquility.
Finalists: The Victorian of Cambridge, Cambridge; Cameo Rose Victorian Country Inn Bed & Breakfast, Belleville
