Different from my regular posts, this one is a review of 1810 Emerson House, a bed and breakfast in Beloit, Wisconsin. For more information click 1810 Emerson House and on Facebook search for 1810 Emerson House bed and breakfast.
1810 Emerson House is owned and operated by Beth and Tony Bonasera of Beloit, Wisconsin. Beth is a quiet, petite, caring lady that truly thinks about the well-being of others. Tony is an extrovert with a huge heart, Sicilian heritage, a cheerful smile, and a love for cooking. Together this married team live out their gift of hospitality whole heartedly. After a stay at their bed and breakfast it is easy to leave feeling like you made new friends.
A personal note about Tony and Beth Bonasera is they remind me of a passage from the Bible. Romans 12:6-8 In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out with as much faith as God has given you. 7 If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well. 8 If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly.
This is the dining room and like all the rooms of this house the details and elegance is amazing. Visitors are surrounded by fun and unique décor that add to the warmth and grace of this bed and breakfast.
Tony and Beth do an excellent job of treating all visitors like royalty. The breakfast on this stay was a stacker. It was short-sighted of me to not write down the different layers of this breakfast stacker however it was delicious!
The stacker was served with a fresh fruit cup that was almost too pretty to eat.
Dessert was a bread pudding that would rival any fine restaurant anywhere. As a personal favorite I have had bread pudding many times and Tony’s is phenomenal!
Lest I forget the coffee was great too.
Okay so enough about the food…
