Come stay at the Hamilton House after a day of biking around the Kettle Moraine State park. Miles of off road and country road trails await you and your bike. If you prefer, head over to the La Grange General Store to rent a bike. then you do not have to bring your bikes from home.
below is a map of whitewater's three bike shops and one of my favorite leisurely afternoon bike rides that includes a stop at the Artisan well to refill your water bottle and a quiet picnic spot.
then return to the Hamilton House for a lesuirly soak in your jetted tub, or a glass of wine on the front porch. We have secure bike store so that you can go off to dinner and leave your bikes behind.

A Women's Only Bike Ride. Every Thursday at 6 pm from the 1st Thursday in April until the last Thursday in September (weather permitting). Leaving from the LaGrange General Sore. The Lady Flyers is a recreational cycling group of women of all ages and all abilities (beginner to advanced) who enjoy camaraderie, fun and fitness. The group promotes bicycling as a lifetime activity that empowers women through good health, wellness, friendship, and personal accomplishment. The group vibe is non-intimidating and easy for beginners to get involved. Clinics are held periodically to teach basic bike maintenance or other bike related activities. These are unsupported rides, but route maps are available for download. Each route is ridden three times in a row to help familiarize everyone with the roads. Biking is on the back roads around the beautiful Southern Kettle Moraine State Forest in Wisconsin near the towns of Palmyra, East Troy, Whitewater and Elkhorn. Helmets are required on all the rides.
This past summer we were one of the fortunate inns to host Bob and Ann during their bike trip through the countryside of Southeastern Wisconsin. We truly enjoyed their stay and it was great fun to live vicariously through them as they biked from inn to inn. I am pleased to share their gallery of photos taken during their travels.
We were in our element.....biking on country roads (with only an occasional car) with lotsa cows, barns, corn, and endless peaceful, picturesque scenes!!! Memorable stays at B&Bs in Whitewater, Cambridge, and Wales....beautiful rooms, warm and wonderful hosts, incredible 3/4 course breakfasts, most interesting guests, and enjoyable walks in and around each town. One of our favorite times together! :-)
Wanted to share "a taste of Wisconsin" with you...ENJOY! Anne and Bob
