Hidden Serenity- Southeastern Wisconsin's Ultimate Bed & Breakfast

Located in the Heart of The Kettle Moraine and Close to Amazing Golf

Just north of West Bend, Wisconsin in the heart of the Kettle Moraine resides Hidden Serenity, a family-owned and operated Bed and Breakfast in a picturesque setting. recently had the chance to interview co-owner Chris Cochran about the property.

1) In your opinion why is Hidden Serenity the perfect place to unwind and please discuss the pride your family has in the property?

Hidden Serenity is surrounded by 24 acres of wooded hiking trails. Often times you see deer, birds, foxes, and abundance of other wildlife. When we originally built the house we used the trees cleared from the building site for all of the wood floors, trim, crown molding stairs and other projects within the house. We also make our own maple syrup on site to serve to the guests for morning gourmet breakfast.

2) Please discuss how your location in so convenient for Wisconsinite's and Chicagoan's to enjoy?

Hidden Serenity is as close as a two hour drive from Chicago's O'Hare airport, yet from our surroundings you would think you are much further north. There is no need to deal with the hassles of airports, taxi's, or rental cars to find hidden treasures that await when you stay at Hidden Serenity.

3) If you were staying at Hidden Serenity for two nights what activities would you recommend enjoying?

It's best to stay at least two days at Hidden Serenity. The first thing I would enjoy is the 110 acre wildlife zoo just across the street. Plus, we have incredible famous golf courses such as The Bog and Erin Hills that are just minutes away. We are on the edge of the Northern Kettle Moraine that features many rustic roads, specialty shops, and scenic sensations. We are also positioned closely to the Wisconsin Art Museum, Memories Dinner Theater, the Port Washington Marina, and Historic Downtown Cedarburg that are all within a 25 minute drive.

Come enjoy Hidden Serenity and find adventure, come back to luxury, and go away refreshed.
