A luxury Bed and Breakfast
Built in 1879 as a private summer residence for the two Schuttler brothers , The Inn at Pine Terrace was modeled on the design of a French nobleman's castle near Vienna. The original owners, wagon builders from Chicago, named their estate "Mon Bijou" (My Jewel).
Mon Bijou remained in the Schuttler family for over forty years and hosted such notables as Mark Twain, several American Presidents, and many of the country's beer brewing elite, including the Miller, Anheuser, Busch, and Pabst families, as well as railroad and industrial barons.
In the 1920s. the Inn was sold and became the Pine Terrace Resort, acting as the center piece for a popular lake front resort. At that time, the Inn owned 150+ acres of land, stretching down to Fowler lake.
In 1986, over 1.5 million dollars were invested to restore the Inn. Taking 2 years and using the finest local craftsmen and furniture makers , the Inn was returned to its original grandeur. Since then, the Inn at Pine Terrace has been run as a Bed and Breakfast, allowing both the local and distant traveler a chance to enjoy a night's rest in a true piece of 19th century history.
The Inn at Pine Terrace is one of the finest and largest of the Victorian mansions still standing in Oconomowoc today and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
