My husband has special needs and Steve & Mary Jane we're welcoming and supportive and didn't even know us! We were treated like friends who were returning unlike new customers just staying for a couple of nights. It was really nice that both Mary Jane & Steve came out to the car to say goodbye when we were leaving. We've stayed at dozens of B&B's all over the U.S. and that was a first, Boots Dwyer
Mary Jane & Steve were very welcoming upon our arrival. The rooms and home are decorated very nice and made our stay so relaxing as well as the horses grazing out in the pasture. Make sure to stop at the Back Porch Bistro for a meal.
Had a wonderful weekend escape from Chicago. Breakfast was the absolute highlight, and dining on the patio was such a nice way to start the day. Also loved that our pup was allowed to stay. Will definitely return soon.
In this day in age, you are extremely pleased and fortunate when you find someone who loves their Bed and Breakfast home like Steve and Mary Jane. Steve's love started with the foundation and literally had a hand and sweat equity in every square inch of this 4 room B & B with large great room, real stone fireplace and huge windows and outside deck, overlooking the beautiful horse pasture and green fields. The cabin is natural pine, white walls, and wood ceilings. It gives a warm, light feeling and the colorful decorations, lavender washed bedding, two person jacuzzi that purred like a Ferrari, chocolates, and soft rose flowers made us feel at home and that this visit would be special! Yes, Steve greeted us at the door after checking with us by phone what time we would arrive. He gave us a complete tour of the great room, stocked kitchen with coffees, teas, and treats as well as showing us our room to make sure we knew how to operate the jacuzzi and TV and DVD player. The next morning, we met Mary Jane who was busy cooking with Steve's help a hearty breakfast of fruit, bacon, cheesy omelette, with a Dutch pastry with local cranberries. Of course, Steve had asked the night before if we had any dietary restrictions or preferences. Cups of Door County coffee where available and we even fixed tea at night. The meal was Deeelicious! Overall, great stay, loved the house, room, and Steves and Mary Jane personal attention to detail. In the first five minutes, my wife and I were discussing returning. We have already forwarded this website to family. Plenty to do in the area -race car track down the road, Ice Age hiking trail, Elkhart Lake and tasty restaurants. Travel east 15 minutes and you also have Sheboygan and Kohler to visit. Or maybe you just want to enjoy the quiet, read a book, take a walk, see the stars, or have a bonfire in the fire pit in the field below the deck. Steve's and Mary Jane home make visiting a relaxing reality.
Had a wonderful stay, beautiful bar and restaurant. The food was great! Great selection of Irish, local and commercial beers. loved the Irish grilled cheese. The balance of Irish cheddar, bacon and spinach was perfect. The room was nice. The bed could of been softer. But the 2 person Jacuzzi more than made up for it. The staff were great very friendly. Very reasonable for a quality hotel
I made a reservation at this bed and breakfast after an internet search for B&B's near Koehler, WI. Being from Illinois, we were looking for a little weekend getaway in a quaint town in Wisconsin a few hours away for a birthday celebration. We had no pre-conceived notions going up to this property except for a Victorian vibe with a breakfast and private bathroom and cleanliness. The Rochester Inn delivered big! They hit it out of the park. The two-story suite we had was quaint with nice touches: keurig coffee maker, basket of assorted k-cup selections to choose from, wet bar, televisions upstairs and downstairs, a bookshelf with lots of books to peruse, DVDs in a glass cabinet in the hallway, large jetted tub that comfortably fit my almost 6 ft. frame, and my partner's 6'5" frame, aromatic bath salts, lots of towels, and a comfortable four poster queen bed. The service was exceptional. The proprietor delivered our breakfast to our room and it was phenomenal. There was a crock of herbed eggs with Canadian bacon on the bottom, fresh fruit assortment, a flaky croissant with a yummy apple cinnamon jam, and orange juice. I think something else was included, but I can't remember. We were extremely pleased with this unexpected B&B choice and highly recommend it for any couple's getaway or a treat yourself weekend! Enjoy!
I stayed here after I had a wedding in Elkhart Lake which was a very short drive. They were so accommodating with how late we showed up. In the morning, they had juice, coffee, tea available. Then they had prepared a light, but fulfilling breakfast. It was unfortunate that I had only stayed one night because this place is beautiful. I'm waiting for the opportunity to go again!
We were a couple celebrating an anniversary. We had Room 4 - a two-level suite. The room was beautifully-decorated and spotless. The bed was comfortable. The hot tub fit two very nicely. We brought along a couple of classic romantic movies to watch to help us relax and cuddle, but there was no remote for the DVD player, Further, the universal remote for the TV generally didn't respond. I will award goodwill points for the owners who came from off-site to solve this issue. But the irritation and lost time put a damper on our getaway. Later, we found that we were not able to turn on the hot water knob for the hot tub (apparently last turned off by a person with a vise-like grip), thus we had to fill it by running the shower. We couldn't replenish the water except by running the shower. We weren't going to bother the owners again, but this was a disappointment. The breakfast of almond-encrusted french toast, sausage, much fresh fruit, and O.J. was outstanding! It would be nice if there was a table that sat two in the suite. But this isn't practical given the lay-out and space limitations. We mentioned all of the above (good and needs improvement) to the male owner, who mentioned that he and his wife bought the Inn recently and were still learning about the maintenance and other aspects. I'm confident that our experience was an aberration and that the new owners will address these details. I'll give this Inn another stay in the future.
The staff was beyond helpful, the room was great with awesome Keurig selections. the only "complaint" I would say is wishing the breakfast was hot, I did have to warm up parts of it but that could be a personal preference
We LOVED our time at Tauschek's Bed & Breakfast. The home has four rooms total — so us, long with three other couples, rented out all of the rooms for the weekend and had the B&B to ourselves! The Great Room was a perfect place to start a fire and play games together around the large coffee table. Our individual rooms, equipped with full baths and a whirlpool tub were perfect "escapes" if we wanted any alone time as a couple! Mary Jane and Steve cooked us a wonderful breakfast each morning and the kitchen was loaded with supplies for making lunch or dinner each evening. Would highly recommend — clean, cozy, and wonderful hosts!
Very nice place to stay. It is clean, charming, historical, warm and nice bathroom with two-person whirlpool. Owner changed breakfast to be a self-serve from a small refrigerator and a microwave. This isn't a B&B experience. The person behind the desk could easily warm and serve the breakfast and exchange a pleasant conversation during the slow winter months.
We had an enjoyable stay at the Rochester Inn! The fact that there is a separate sitting room is wonderful in the morning when one person is up and the other is enjoying sleeping in! It would be nice if they added bath salts for the tub and some bathrobes. The breakfast was delivered to our room and was outstanding! We would stay here again!
I have been driving past Tauschek's for a 5 years as we only live a few miles from there. I always thought it was a beautiful building. When my husband finished his master's degree I wanted to find a nice relaxing getaway that wasn't too far from home. Tauschek's came up on my search for nearby bed and breakfasts. I thought why not. I am so happy we stayed there. The prices were great! The room was perfect! Breakfast was delicious! Mary Jane and Steve were very kind! Don't miss out on this diamond in the rough!
Room was very clean but needs some minor maintenance....carpet in hallway starting to show wear....exterior of building beautiful was nice and fresh....dinner was a disappointment....breakfast was very good....
Enjoyed a wonderful weekend at this charming B&B. MaryJane and Steve have a beautiful place and made us feel like it was our home also. Great breakfast and relaxation the entire time. We even got to spend some time with there loving dog "Harley". Looking forward to our next stay this Winter. Thanks again for a memorable weekend, Linda and Dan L.
Steve and Mary Jane was gracious hosts at their beautiful B&B. Steve was thorough in explaining everything around their place when we arrived. Mary Jane prepared wonderful breakfasts for our two day stay. She is definitely a conversationalist! (in a good way!) They made you feel welcome in their home! Recommended!!!
We had the absolute best time over a quick weekend stay for a wedding in Sheboygan. Our hosts were very courteous and called us ahead of time, knowing that our flight was getting in late, and they were still able to make arrangements for us to get our key and come in. The room was so beautiful and comfortable. We wish we could have stayed longer! Definitely recommending this place to our friends in the Chicago area who need a weekend getaway. Thanks so much!
Our arrival time changed and our hostess was able to accommodate the change without an issue. Our room category was upgraded, and we had our choice of two different rooms. Both were very nice - two stories with the bed and bath upstairs. We could come and go any hour as we pleased. Breakfast was prepared just for us and served in the dining area (we had the option of having it served in our room). Both hostesses provided excellent service. I would highly recommend this site.
We returned with friends this time and again it was an outstanding experience. Steve and Mary Jane made it their priority to offer us the perfect balance of hospitality and advice on regional highlights. Their home is beautifully maintained with a perfect balance of inside comfort and outside nature. We especially enjoyed an evening around the fire pit gazing at the brilliant stars.
