Welcome to nationally-registered historic landmark Nelson Salisbury House, built in 1873. An example of American Italianate architecture, the house is steeped in local history. Close to lakes, parks, University of Wisconsin-Whitewater campus, & downtown restaurants. Abandoned for years, our family is bringing the old house back to life so it's not fancy, but it is authentic. Stay here if you want to experience the uniqueness of a quirky old house complete with trundle bed & lots of artwork.

Suzanne's place is just as described: a big, old, fascinating, historical home with artwork covering the walls. I spent two comfortable nights there, and thoroughly enjoyed my visit. Great central location too.

I had a very nice, albeit short, stay at Suzanne’s house. My plans changed last minute and she was able accommodate a later check in. The bed was so comfy and I slept soundly. I would definitely stay here again!
