Winter Activities at Amil’s Inn

January 31st, 2014 by David Reeck

As many of you already know, we have been having an ‘old fashion’ winter in Western Wisconsin.  There has been an abundance of snow as well as cold.

For outdoor activities, the snow and cold makes for great snowmobiling, ice skating, cross country skiing, and snowshoeing.  The Elroy-Sparta Bike Trail is open to snowmobilers and is very well groomed.  In fact Wisconsin has 110 trails open to snowmobilers with 25,000 miles of well groomed trails.  Check out www.travelwisconsin.com or www.wistravel.com for more information.

For those who would rather be inside, Amil’s Inn offers a great place for those that do scrapbooking, basket weaving, make a denim blanket, organize recipes or any other project that would need a warm and cozy place.

Hope to see you soon!

Icicles found at Amil’s Inn Bed and Breakfast

October 30th, 2013 by David Reeck

Icicles on our water fountain.  Time to put away for winter.

Icicles on our water fountain. Time to put away for winter.

We have been very busy trying to cover up all our beautiful flowers in the cool of the night.  This past evening the temperature dropped into the low 20’s.  As you can see our water fountain will have to be put away for the winter months.

The vegetable gardens have been tilled and the final harvest has been made of most of the garden vegetables.  The Lord has been so good to us again this year.  We have a trailer full of butternut and spaghetti squash.  We share with our guests, neighbors and the elderly that are in need.  The only thing that is still left in the garden to feast on before the holidays is carrots and brussels sprouts.

Oh…. I still have lemon balm to dry for winter tea.  This is a plant that produces so much.  It was given to me from an Amish friend (just 3 roots).  Ha! Ha!  We have to laugh because it is a plant that wants to take over the entire garden.  In the spring, we will till circles around it and only allow a 3 foot size area for this plant.  Lemon Balm is used not only for teas but also garnishing.

Well, I better sign off for now and get a nice simmering slow crock pot ready with chicken and dumplings so we can finish the fall clean up before Jack Frost comes and breaks our water hoses!

For those health enthusiasts, come and join us this weekend as the Elroy-Sparta Bike Trail closes the tunnel doors for the winter months after the Rails to Trails Marathon which  will takes place Sunday, November 3, 2013.  The Rails to Trails Marathon consists of a full, Boston qualifier, marathon, half-marathon, 5K and 1 mile run.

Flowers Are Coming To Life At Amil’s Inn

May 30th, 2012 by David Reeck

Lupines-one of the many varieties of flowers you will experience at Amil's Inn.

Spring time is always a very busy time at Amil’s Inn.  Your Innkeepers, Anita and David, enjoy making the grounds of Amil’s Inn as beautiful as possible for our guests to enjoy during their stay with us.  Not only will the guests have flower gardens to enjoy but also several vegetable gardens as well.

As you drive into Amil’s Inn one of the first gardens you will see will be the “heart” shaped flower garden which is outlined by a row of hostas and within the “heart” are many different varieties of perennials. The “heart” is to let people know that they will find warm hospitality during their stay at Amil’s  Inn as well as a reminder that Wilton is the “heart” of the Sparta-Elroy Bike Trail which is a great place to start their trek on the Elroy-Sparta Bike Trail.  After you are parked and are ready to enter the Inn, you will be enjoying some perennials and annuals that are planted on both sides of the entrance sidewalk to the front door. 

After you are settled in our guests are welcome to walk the grounds to enjoy the vegetable gardens and other flower gardens.  Grassed walkways have been placed throughout the vegetable gardens so that the guests are able to observe our plantings more closely.  The only thing we ask is that if a weed says, “pull me” don’t hesitate to comply with their request!!!!

Your Innkeepers strive to make your visit to Amil’s Inn as simple, comfortable and cozy as possible and we trust that our flower and vegetable gardens will help you experience just that.  We hope to see you soon.

Amil’s Inn Visits The Cream Pitcher

February 23rd, 2012 by David Reeck

A cozy, crackling fire awaits you.

This past weekend the Innkeepers from Amil’s Inn Bed and Breakfast-Anita and David Reeck stayed with Diane and Vern Dalberg of the Cream Pitcher Bed and Breakfast for some rest and relaxation.  We soon realized one night was not enough time to enjoy this beautiful Bed and Breakfast.

The Cream Pitcher Bed and Breakfast is situated among the hills of Richland County, this unglaciated area offers awesome beauty as well as outdoor activities in every season.  There are more than 3 miles of hiking trails through the 100 acres of woodland.  One may watch deer, turkeys and other wildlife; see and hear many species of birds and enjoy the creek that flows close by.

 The innkeepers, Diane and Vern have a large collection of pitchers from the 1930′s, 40′s, and 50′s.  The home is embellished with many antiques. The Cream Pitcher was meticulously hand-crafted to ensure the proper blend between modern amenities and old-fashioned quality and comfort.

Guests of The Cream Pitcher experience a retreat in nature. Sports enthusiasts can enjoy hiking, biking, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, fishing, or just relaxing.

We stayed in Jared’s Room which is a spacious room with its own private entrance; a screened porch with hammock chairs, this “northwoods” room has a comfortable queen size bed, a private bath with a large, double shower.  It has a great view of the woods…you can watch wildlife and listen to the birds(in fact Sunday morning we heard a woodpecker outside our window) or step outside and walk the trail into the woods.

There are 3 other beautiful and spacious rooms, all with private baths and more—Kathie’s Room, Andrew’s Room and Tolena’s Room.  

For more information about The Cream Pitcher Bed and Breakfast and to plan your stay, visit their website: www.mwt.net/~crmptchr.  You will not be disappointed.
