Spring is here?

Well, close!  You deserve an extra day away with your special someone! We’ll take 10% off your stay of two nights or longer. Take advantage of this through April 30, 2014.  Nights must be consecutive and in the same room. Phipps Inn, Inns of the Valley and Wisconsin Bed & Breakfast Association gift certificates are welcome with this special. Donated or trade gift certificates from the Phipps Inn and other third party gift cards or certificates will not be accepted with this special. Not valid with other specials, offers or for whole house rentals. Other restrictions may apply. Contact innkeepers for details. (If you make an on-line reservation, you will receive a second updated confirmation noting the discount.)

The walk along the river is beautiful this time of year.  The swans are still here and the other waterfowl arrive daily.  Work up an appetite for breakfast1  Maybe we'll make our Sticky Buns that always get rave reviews.  See the recipe on our web site.

Spring is here! At least for today...

The Chocolate March is over and we're ready for April!  Our fireplaces will provide you with ambiance for romance and the weather allows some slow walks downtown and along the thawing river.  A new restaurant opened in Hudson: The Smilin' Moose.  Reports on the food and drink give it an A+. It's a short walk from the Phipps Inn Bed & Breakfast.  Come and give it a try.

We're Extending our Winter Special

Since winter seems to be extending itself, we've decided to extend our winter special here at the Phipps Inn Bed & Breakfast.  You can get 10% off a two (or more) night stay until April 30, 2014.  We hope that at some point between now and April 30th you won't be coming in from the cold any longer - you'll just be enjoying the Phipps Inn and Hudson, Wisconsin!  Come on over!  We'll be glad to see you!

Winter Warm-ups

It doesn't matter what the groundhog says.  There is still lots of time left to warm up this winter in Hudson.  One of our favorite places is Mama Maria's restaurant in North Hudson.  A nice glass of Chianti goes great with Veal Lombardi - a new dish on the new menu.  The menu hasn't completely changed.  Old favorites like Seafood Cannelloni and the ever popular Champagne Chicken are still available.  Mama's makes the best risotto around.  I recently had Walnut/Gorgonzola risotto as a side to Chicken Angela - my all time favorite.  We'd be happy to make a reservation for you at Mama Maria's.  Warm up with their wonderful food and then enjoy more warmth in a whirlpool tub in front of the fireplace in your Phipps Inn room.

Winter Fun in Hudson

There's almost nothing as much fun - and as pretty - as cross country skiing in Willow River State Park.  Wildlife, waterfalls, a workout!  What could be better?  More cross country trails close to Hudson are Afton State Park and William O'Brien State Park just across the border in Minnesota.  If you're more into the downhill adventure, Afton Alps is growing and improving their facility - and it's less than 10 miles from Hudson and the Phipps Inn.

Hudson's Hot Air Affair is February 7-9.  It's a beautiful sight when 25-35 hot air balloons take off at the same time.  Friday night's parade is always a blast - literally and figuratively!  The balloon pilots show off their fire power and the parade units are creative and usually very funny.  Mix a little romance with winter fun and reserve a night - or two - at the Phipps Inn Bed & Breakfast.  We're close to all the action!

Eat Dessert First!

Through this Friday, December 7 each restaurant will feature a dessert with a specific holiday ingredient. The participating restaurants are Winzer Stube, The Nova of Hudson, Urban Olive and Vine, Barkers, San Pedro CafĂ©, Stone Tap, Postmark Grill, and Pier 500.  The Nova will be serving Double Chocolate Flowerless Cake with Izzy's Peppermint Chocolate Chunk ice cream and a house made candy cane crisp.  It's got our vote!
