If you are looking for the quintessential Hotel Kewaunee, WI then make sure you book yourself at the Karsten Hotel, and we will take good care of you.

Bask in historical surroundings. Karsten is a beautifully preserved brick hotel built in 1912 before the dawn of elevators. Our 23 comfortable rooms, the antiques, the original stained glass in the bar, the woodwork, and the wood-floored ballroom are all reminiscent of the late Victorian era. All three floors of the hotel have wide, spacious hallways that provide guests with genteel privacy. Karsten Hotel Kewaunee, WI is the place where you can catch a glimpse of the leisurely life in the past.

Enjoy recreational activities. If you are staying for a vacation, there is no better place for fun and recreation than Karsten Hotel. You can go boating, hunting, fishing, hiking, or kayaking nearby. You and your family can also do a spot of horse riding or biking in the trails surrounding the hotel. If you want a little excitement, you might try a little ghost hunting, and see if the three resident ghosts – William Karsten Sr., the former owner, or 5 year old Billy Karsten Jr., or Agatha, the former housekeeper – will make an appearance. However, if you just want to spend some moments in peace and quiet, you have a beautiful view of Lake Michigan to keep you company. If you stay in a Premier room, you will wake up to the glorious sight of Lake Michigan bathed in the gold as the sun begins to rise.

Relax in our comfortable rooms. Each of our rooms has free high speed internet and cable television and guest controlled heating and air conditioning, and all the usual amenities of a modern hotel room. Our guests can have a complimentary continental breakfast in our dining area to start their day. We take our guests’ comfort very seriously, and we have maintained a sitting room in each floor.  Each of our rooms has a TV, and an optional refrigerator.  Those who want Jacuzzis in their rooms can book themselves in a room equipped with one, and we even make rollaway beds available upon request.
