I had a funeral to attend this Saturday and looked up hotels in Wausau on Friday. When I scrolled down the usual suspects of hotels I kept scrolling. I ended up on the B & B lists and the Everest. I couldn't believe the prices. They didn't seem right. I called. The prices were more than right; they were excellent. They stayed up for my late arrival and even had a snack ready. (Pound Cake...that a friend had made... an excellent friend!) I slept well in a comfortable bed. Breakfast was an excellent egg casserole, granola yogurt, juices, coffee and 'wine bread' which wasn't made with wine and you may not be lucky enough to get any during your stay...but I did. There! Jealous?! If you ever have some you will be!
There's off-street parking in back. An excellent restaurant/bar in an old italianate house across the street and a great neighborhood of old 'lumber-baron' houses in the surrounding blocks.
The only negative was that I couldn't stay longer. My every need was taken care of, by Dave and Lori. The house was beautifully decorated for Christmas with multiple trees etc.
It's worth the effort to get off the highway and get into Wausau proper to enjoy these friendly people and their classic B&B!
