The house that is now The Lamp Post Inn Bed & Breakfast was build circa 1874 and we’ve been pampering our guests since the 1980s. We have many repeat customers including a family that has been staying with us every September for 20 years.

We are host to customers attending shows at The Fireside Dinner Theatre and many of the local events in the Fort Atkinson area. If you’re planning a stay with us for the first time, we’re sure it will be memorable.

Please give us a call at (920) 563-6561 for reservations. We look forward to having you as our guests in our magnificent Bed & Breakfast.
