    B & B @ the Brumder, mix of the 19 & 20th century

    by

    Maybe it's because I'm accustomed to sleeping at youth hostels, but when I stayed at the Brumder Mansion I was thoroughly impressed. The owner Carol had accomodated me at short notice, and was an extremely nice and outgoing personality. The mansion was clean and comfortable, and was decorated cheerfully for Christmas. The room my boyfriend and I stayed in (Marion's Suite on the 3rd floor) included a gas fireplace (very useful as the facility seems quite big), a small color tv/vcr with Direct TV, 2 person whirlpool, and a HUGE marble shower. There are different amenities for different rooms, and are priced accordingly. It's best to double check. You can check the availablity and prices of the 5 rooms on the website and reserve one, as well.

    Breakfast was nicely presented in the dining room, although Carol gave us the option for the meal in our room. Buttery blueberry waffles, fresh fruit and strong coffee set us straight for the day.

    Directions:
    Drive west from downtown on Wisconsin Ave; drive past Marquette U. The number streets get higher, & the mansion is on the right side. There is a parking lot that is shared with another inn: after turn on 31st, look out for a iron gate on the LEFT side. Once you pull in, you can park to the right.

    Unique Quality: Beautifully well-thought out decor. There are many fantastic antique chairs and settee on the 2nd floor, and some really great wood furniture.

    There is a theatre in the basement for special events and acting classes. Check out other events on the webpage.

    The owner is a dog lover, so her cute scamps scutter around the house as well! Look around for Big Al.

    Directions: See description.

More about Brumder Mansion Bed and Breakfast

Brumder Mansion

by Dabs

Located several blocks west of the Pabst Mansion on the same street is the Brumder Mansion. At the time it was built in 1910, the area where these mansions stood was the city's most desirable neighborhood. George Brumder, a wealthy businessman who made his fortune in publishing and banking, built this brick English arts and crafts mansion for his son, George Jr.

By the 1920s-1930s, this was no longer the place to live and many of the mansions were knocked down. This mansion survived and was used as a boarding house, a parsonage, and activity center for the Lutheran Church as well as a Christian coffee house and live music venue called The Catacombs in the 1960s.

It is now a bed and breakfast, the rooms look lovely on the attached website.

Tripoli Shrine

by Dabs

Located in the stretch of Wisconsin Avenue between the Pabst Mansion and the Brumder Mansion, the Tripoli Shrine was designed to resemble the Taj Mahal. It was the first Shrine Temple in Wisconsin, opened in 1928.

Most people who live in the US probably best know the Shriners from either their appearances in parades zipping around on minature motorized vehicles wearing their trademark red fezes or from the Shriner's Circus.

I honestly didn't know much about the Shriners besides that, the attached website says that the Shrine was founded in 1872, originally as a social club which later developed into a charitable organization that raises money to provide medical care for children free of charge.

Located at 3000 W. Wisconsin Avenue.
