We had a great experience with Yvette and James.
Yvette was there to welcome us when we arrived in the late evening and got us settled down -plus lots of food and point of interest recommendation- within half an hour. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We had a great time in Milwaukee thanks to Yvette's recommendation.
This place has to be the best place to stay in Milwaukee, the Mid West, North America – maybe the world? It may look and sound good on the description but the reality is even better! I've rarely felt this good, this safe, this relaxed, this welcome, and this nourished in a stranger's home. Yvette and James frequently went far out of their way in look after me and made everything flow just perfectly for me. In addition the room felt luxurious, it was quiet and warm and allowed me to really recharge during a frantic time at a conference. The breakfasts were divine, and the area was perfect for me – walking distance of all I needed. I'm so glad I found this place, it made my time in Milwaukee way better than it could possibly have been otherwise! Can't recommend it highly enough.
A friendly house. A family atmosphere. Yvette and
James are sympathic and authentic ! A good place to stay and visit Milwaukee. It's a big city but it's very quiet and there's a lot to discover : culture, music, nature...
Yvette was a great host and provided everything I needed to have a great stay. The room was quiet at night, and with a separate exterior door to enter/exit the house made it extremely convenient as I had to leave early in the morning, so I didn't disturb anyone else. There is no interior door, but rather a curtain, that separates the room from the rest of the house. The bed was comfortable and the fan in the room helped keep everything cool
Yvette was a fantastic host. She and James were very welcoming and very helpful. She even picked up me up at the airport when I was delayed about an hour. It was lovely. The home was beautiful, very accommodating, and it was a very great way to get introduced to Milwaukee. I highly suggest you look into visiting them.
