Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Beth and Mark were awesome hosts and they both made us feel very comfortable! The house and room were spotlessly clean with some excellent vintage style. They had a puppy named Wrigley who was also super friendly. The shared bathroom was not an issue at all. Great experience all around.

  • When we looked at the other reviews the word delightful came up, and that perfectly describes our experience of Beth, Mark and their home. The home is lovely, very, very clean and welcoming. They have a wonderful mix of being respectful of our privacy and engaging with us. We were dropping off our daughter to Lawrence U. and their home was a very convenient distance away. They were great resources about Appleton. Our last morning there Beth made an incredible breakfast. We were very happy with our experience with them and their home.

  • We were there for a coupe days for ur son's wedding. It was a very nice place to stay, Mark and Beth are delightful and sharingpeople. For some reason we thought it had a private bath room, it didn't but it worked out just fine. Laurie

  • Beth and Mark have a beautifully restored 101 year old home. Tastefully furnished and decorated, and comfortable. No desk in bedroom, but plenty of space in living room for working on your laptop . Free wifi. Having to share the (very clean) bathroom was a concern, but ultimately not a problem. Hosts are both conscientious.

  • This was a perfect fit for me. I was visiting my daughter at Lawrence and really appreciate the comfort and ease that Beth and Mark's home provides. And the affordability allowed me to spend more days with my girl. Comfy bed, no overpowering fragrances...I didn't know what I was looking for, but as it turns out,your home was it! A great introduction to airbnb!

  • Beth and Mark are awesome! Very very friendly people who have obviously put a lot of effort into making the stay as inviting, comfortable, and relaxing as possible! The heated mattress pad was really nice on those cold Wisconsin nights! Which isn't to say the room gets cold, just that the extra bit of heat was very very nice. :)

    November 2012
  • Beth and Mark are wonderful hosts. They provide a beautiful place to sleep and full use of their house. It really is a home away from home and would not hesitate to stay with them again or to recommend them. Their personalities are as bright as their home.

    November 2012
  • I loved my stay at Beth's place. Her welcome and warmth provide a sense of home away from home.

    September 2012
  • Beautifaully appointed home in a nice area of town. Beth was a lovely host and although we only saw her for a short while she made sure we had all the information we needed about the house and area.

    August 2012
  • Beth and Mark were such great hosts! The house was super clean and our stay was fantastic. The location was convenient and close to all sorts of things. It couldn't have been any better.

My husband, Mark and I are both self-employed and love a simple life. We are active and we love the outdoors. Mark can't live without his bicycle, I can't live without my camera. Both readers and musicians, our house is full of books and musical instruments, instead of television. We love our local community and try our best to support it wherever possible. Hosting is one of our favorite things to do: we regularly have friends over for dinner or games--we very highly value relationships and community. Each of us hold respect in high regard and actively aim to put love in action through serving.
