A tour of the Brumder Mansion
Finding the Brumder Bed and Breakfast isn’t necessarily a discovery. The beautiful yet unsung mansion, located at 3046 W. Wisconsin Ave., has been profiled before on the cover of Milwaukee Home and Fine Living, gets high ratings online and has a steady clientele.
Most of that clientele are return customers or word-of-mouth guests. Many parents visiting Marquette students stay here; honeymooners gravitate toward the turn-of-the-century charm; Harley riders and baseball fans find it conveniently close; and occasionally, those seeking paranormal activity stop in.
It’s intriguing to see such a place in a neighborhood in flux.
I think my favorite room was the bathroom on the third floor with the Kohler Artist Editions toilet and sink. There was so much room and privacy up there, I could understand how someone might spend the entire weekend inside. As for that lower-level ballroom space, Tom Carr has future plans to host musicians and other events there. He’s partial to Irish music and jazz and would like to eventually host a few events a month.
