What a wonderful place to stay! I truly cannot think of anything about our visit that was less than lovely. Our room, The Franklin Suite, was so pretty and comfortable. I so enjoyed the whirlpool tub. The entire house was beautiful. I spent many hours reading on the comfy front porch. It was blissfully relaxing. The breakfasts were so delicious,...

This beautiful B&B is one to remember. The smell of homemade bake goods filled the air as we walked in the front door of the Inn. The Lawrence Room was beautifully decorated and the fresh baked cookies waiting for us in our room were a real treat after a long trip to Wisconsin. Judy was a wonderful host and very...

After much research while on the road we chose the Franklin Park Inn above Airbnbs, other bed n breakfasts, and hotels within a 50-mile radius, and were glad we did! The bed was very comfortable and we felt very much at home in Judy's elegant inn. Judy met us upon arrival with some delicious homemade rhubarb cake and a glass...

Every aspect described on their web site was exceeded. Judy has used her background as an art teacher to add interesting decorative touches to each room, as well as the garden. She is fastidious in her care of the property, and was also very helpful in recommending restaurants and area sights. Breakfast was a real treat and she was careful...

This is our third year staying at the Franklin Street Inn and once again it was amazing. We were treated like friends returning for a visit instead of guests. When we arrived, there was cake to try and it was delicious! The room was very clean and the breakfast was terrific. Judy's presentation is always a special treat. We hope...

Could not believe the cleanliness of EVERYTHING in the house. Breakfasts were excellent and hospitality amazing! We stayed at Franklin St on Durkee in the Sea Breeze room. It was roomy enough for me and my three friends, and the decorations in all the rooms were "themed". We loved it!

My husband & I enjoyed a repeat stay when we attended Lawrence University's graduation. The location is perfect for walking to all the graduation events. We did not have to hassle with parking once. Judy is a gracious hostess, the house and yard are lovely. There is a city park one block away which is perfect for evening or early...
