Keeping it simple...

Our Inn is not a museum, nor a gift shop or chain motel, it is your home-away-from-home. Whether relaxing on the front porch, or in one of the parlors, walking along the Mullet river in Huson Park, or dining at a Wisconsin Supper Club, you will enjoy the comforts of the Huson House.

Family History...

The Huson family were early settlers of Plymouth. Gilbert operated a farm implement and feed business known as Huson Bros. & Timm. At one time Gilbert's parents, brother 's Henry and George, all lived in homes within 2-blocks of each other on Collins street.  Gilbert and Susan raised 3-children, Clara, Mary and Willard, in their new home. Gilbert retired after the home was constructed and remained there until his death in 1917. The home remained in the Huson family until the 1940's.

Breakfast

Good Morning!

Breakfast is served in the dining room. A time which is convenient for you is determined beforehand, though breakfast is not served after 10:00 a.m. The Innkeeper decides the menu for each breakfast, which typically starts with fruit and/or yogurt, a sweet, followed by something baked. Please alert us to any dietary needs at the time of your reservation. We do our best to accommodate guest needs. Once a guest came down for breakfast and shared his multiple food allergies which we were unaware of. Unfortunately we were not able to attend his funeral. Just kidding!

Did you say you like to eat?

Wisconsin is known for its supper clubs and we have a few close by. These places are just timeless. A brandy old fashioned press, relish tray, cheese & sausage, pickled beets, herring, and a big-ol steak or prime rib, a few things which make for a Supper Club experience which you won't soon forget. And you won't leave hungry! A little tipsy? Perhaps!

ž ½ cup fresh or frozen blueberries 

ž ½ cup fresh or frozen raspberries 

ž 8 ounces cream cheese, softened 

ž 2/3 cup granulated sugar 

ž 2 large eggs 

ž 1 teaspoon vanilla 

ž ¾ cup whole milk 

 Lightly coat a 9-inch square pan with cooking spray. Place croissant pieces in the pan. Scatter the blueberries and raspberries over the top. In a medium bowl with an electric mixer, beat cream cheese and sugar until combined and smooth. Add in the eggs and vanilla and beat until well blended. Gradually add milk, beating well after each addition. Pour mixture evenly over croissant pieces. Gently pat down with a wooden spoon so all the pieces are coated. Let rest 10-15 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350*.   Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until set in center and golden brown. If top starts to get too brown toward the end, cover with foil.
