Cabins & CottagesLodging
In Arena, Wisconsin, it's at the end of Reimann Road.
Award winning and fully restored, the Brisbane House is now open for overnight guests! Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it’s notably tall and skinny and carved out of the stone from the nearby bluff. William Henry Brisbane built it in 1868. He was a human rights activist before his time. We’re preserving his legacy by opening it up to guest stays and by showcasing contemporary art created exclusively by internationally-known artists of color. Come to celebrate your friends, family, and your story. Leave inspired by Brisbane’s courage to write your next chapter. The house sleeps six and has one full bathroom. Also, the adjacent ''summer kitchen'' sleeps an additional four and there's another new full bathroom on the ground floor in the connector between the house and the summer kitchen. It is featured in July's Madison Magazine.
