Located in Stoughton, Wisc. -- only 20 minutes from beautiful Madison -- the Altemus Corners House makes a perfect weekend getaway any time of year.
An old-fashioned farm home located in the heart of farm country, the house is an 1870’s structure with original woodwork, layout and ambiance. It is completely refurbished with three guest bathrooms and four bedrooms. Period antiques and handmade Victorian lampshades accent every room.
The southern style front porch with gazebo is an excellent place to eat breakfast and relax on warm summer days. There is air conditioning, a music room parlor, and several sitting areas in the house.
The innkeeper lives onsite and farms herself, ensuring that guests enjoy fresh flowers (in season) and delicious homemade food harvested from her own gardens to compliment her old-fashioned family recipes.
Check in time begins at 3 p.m. and check out time is 11 a.m. Altemus Corners is an alcohol-free bed and breakfast inn.
A relaxed full breakfast is served each morning. Homemade deserts and beverages are served in the evening. Drop a compliment to the innkeeper and she may surprise you with a homemade Danish kringle.
The Altemus Corners Guest House is only two miles from Interstate 90 and is located 20 minutes from the Wisconsin state capitol, University of Wisconsin - Madison, Kohl Center, Henry Vilas Zoo and the Dane County Expo Center. Saturdays from May to October, walk the capitol grounds and enjoy farm-fresh produce, flowers, baked goods and cheese curds during Farmers Market.
Antique shopping, Stoughton Opera House, museums and several state and local parks can be found five minutes away in Stoughton. The Coachmen 27-hole golf course and restaurant is only two miles away.
