About the inn

What a difference a night makes at Cameo Rose… an award winning genuine Madison Wisconsin bed and breakfast getaway on 120 scenic acres of rolling hills, scenic woodlands, private trails, glorious gardens and a pond with 3 waterfalls – all just 10 minutes Southwest of Madison.

The nicest people in the world stay at the Cameo Rose. Enjoy a world of hospitality, affordable luxury, comfort and beauty in an elegant country inn B&B with five distinctive guest rooms in a Victorian-style mansion with panoramic views, and the "best beds and best breakfasts" for relaxing, renewing and romantic Wisconsin getaways.

So far from the stress you left behind, a genuine getaway without city-wall views, bright lights, sirens and traffic noises. So close to everything… 15 minutes to New Glarus - America's Little Switzerland or Mount Horeb - Little Norway and within an hour of 101 Wisconsin Attractions.

Accolades include Wisconsin State Journal, "One of the most attractive bed and breakfast hotels in the United States”; Arrington's B&B Journal, "One of the top 15 B&B/inns in the country" and “Best Breakfast in the Midwest”; and Bob Puhala, Chicago Sun Times, "One of the finest getaways in the Midwest."

To guests, “Cameo Rose is a special place" and to TripAdvisor, Cameo Rose deserves the “2012 Certificate of Excellence” Award. Luxurious rooms and amenities await you on a private park estate complete with scenery, English Cottage gardens, glorious sunsets, moonlit nights, stargazing, and immense peace and quiet.

Refresh in whirlpool and fireplace rooms, honeymoon suites, a group suite, comfy king and queen beds, luxurious spa robes, air, closets, insulated inside walls and hair dryers and radio/CD players. Whirlpool rooms have TV/VCR and refrigerators.

Dawn’s artistic blend of elegance and comfort, roses, white lace and other Victorian era treasures add to your romantic experience. Relax and enjoy check-in-time refreshments, a wrap-around porch, Gazebos and pergolas, the wicker-filled tower sunroom or the warmth of a fire in the cozy living room.

Experience hand-in-hand strolls on miles of private trails, birding, deer and wild turkeys grazing, swings-for-two, a lazy hammock, a great sleep and a full memorable breakfast elegantly served on vintage china and lace.

Dawn and Gary Bahr will welcome and pamper you from the moment you arrive. Dawn's attention to detail and fine dining, antiquing, shopping and tourism suggestions will make your travel Wisconsin vacation extra special. Dawn gave up business administration and wanted a bed and breakfast in Wisconsin between Madison, Belleville, Fitchburg, Oregon and Verona. Gary retired from banking and real estate and wanted a small cabin in the woods. Cameo Rose is "their" compromise.
