Hidden Serenity Bed and Breakfast has new neighbors! Two fuzzy, cuddly guys named Lewis and Clark have moved in across the street. Shalom Wildlife Zoo has adopted two brown bear cubs. They are a huge hit in eastern Wisconsin and have captured the hearts of many all over the world! Lewis and Clark have been on the news on at least two different channels and are a huge sensation on the Shalom Wildlife facebook page. They even were on Good Morning America!!


While you are enjoying a romantic getaway at our inn in the woods, you can literally walk over to Shalom Wildlife Zoo and see the brown bear cubs and all the other creatures they have, such as elk, several kinds of deer, buffalo, fox, goat, horses, and many more animals. Many mamas have birthed babies this spring which makes it even more exciting. Come to see the little ones including Lewis and Clark.


Lodging at Hidden Serenity Bed and Breakfast is perfect for the animal lover who will certainly visit the Shalom Wildlife Zoo. Our romantic Wisconsin Bed and Breakfast offers gourmet hot breakfasts with fresh coffee or fresh herbal teas.

The beauty of our romantic getaway cannot be hidden.

Tapping the sugar maples to make syrup at Hidden Serenity Bed and Breakfast

A new adventure at Hidden Serenity Bed and Breakfast is about to begin! Soon we will tap our sugar maple trees – a hobby, and  often a business that many people in Wisconsin partake in. The delicious golden treasure is ready to flow. As we ready our equipment to go through the process, we are excited about this new endeavor. We have been doing extensive research on collecting the sap and boiling it down to make smooth, sweet syrup. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway during the next few weeks book a room at our Bed and Breakfast, you may find us tending to the sap! We are anxious to share the thick liquid with our guests at Hidden Serenity Bed and Breakfast. Imagine your hot gourmet breakfast of waffles, smothered with maple syrup tapped from the trees just outside the windows of our luxury inn. There aren’t too many Kettle Moraine area lodgings that can offer that!

Tapping the sap in the maple trees is just the beginning of a beautiful spring season.  The flow of the sap indicates that the trees will soon be budding out and the days are getting longer and, thank goodness, warmer. A nice hike on our trails will awaken your senses that may need some reviving at this time of year, just like the trees. Enjoying a romantic getaway in spring can be very refreshing for the body and the soul. As we collect the sap and boil it down, we are imagining all the guests at Hidden Serenity Bed and Breakfast that will be enjoying the delicious breakfast it will be served with. Treat yourself, body, soul and sweet tooth too!
