Located across the street from the University of Wisconsin Arboretum, the 1800's landmark and Annex addition are surrounded by native gardens and mature trees. Formerly the Plough Inn, the historic structure served as a tavern and stagecoach stop dating back to 1853. The inn's original wood floors, natural stone fireplaces, and dramatic great room are just some of the features that are admired by visitors today and make the Inn a wonderful hotel alternative. Recent additions include a sauna and beautiful sunroom for all guests to enjoy.

All eight guestrooms have queen-size beds except for the Studio and Tap Rooms, which have king-sized beds. Each lodging accommodations features a private bath, and several have fireplaces and whirlpool tubs. A reading chair or couch is available for relaxation. A welcome beverage is served upon your arrival, and hot tea or herbal ice tea is available at any time. Aveda hair care products are offered for guest use, and cable television is available in most rooms as well. Wireless high-speed Internet access is complimentary.

You may choose the Cozy Rose, a quaint guest room with an antique bed, pale rose walls, and a beautiful floral pattern on the linens. A natural stone fireplace, velvet reading chair, wet bar, and whirlpool bath add to the romance of the room. As a finishing touch, a fresh rose is placed in the room to greet you on arrival. Or perhaps you would enjoy the Tap Room, once a popular tavern in which carriage travelers stopped for spirits and then danced upstairs. A "bubble bath for two" soaking clawfoot tub is one of the features of this newly renovated guest room. Silky linens, a dart board, and game table add to this very special accommodation.

Memorable breakfasts are found at The Arbor House with an extended continental breakfast during the weekdays and a full breakfast feast on weekends. Room service is available for corporate clients.

Arbor House blends historic features with modern amenities and an environmental emphasis. The inn showcases resource-efficient architecture, interior design, energy and water use, landscaping, and inn operations while providing opportunities for recreation and learning more about urban ecology.

Arbor House is within walking distance of Lake Wingra, just a few blocks from Edgewood College and one mile from Camp Randall Stadium. Biking, nature trails, bird watching, swimming, golfing, sailing, canoeing, cross-country skiing, and the zoo are virtually on your doorstep! Guests can walk to popular neighborhood restaurants and shops or take a brief five- to ten-minute drive for University or State Capitol activities. Arbor House is a healthy, ecologically-minded place, ideal for a business retreat, family reunion, or long weekend with a group of friends.
