Lovely Lodging


We lodged at a lovely bed & breakfast during our Wisconsin vacation. This was the peaceful view from our room’s tiny private balcony.



Although Tauschek’s Bed & Breakfast was an hour drive from Oshkosh, this separation from hectic AirVenture festivities was vital to our sanity.



If you ever find yourself near Plymouth, Wisconsin, please consider staying with the Tauschek family. Steve and Mary Jane are kind, caring souls who provide delicious home-cooked breakfasts and comfy lavender-scented bedding:)
