About the Property

Guesthouse for 6. Up to 10 allowed for an additional fee with rent of BnB rooms

The Muse Gallery Guesthouse is a quality, licensed lodging between Milwaukee's airport and downtown and just down the street from the Lake Express ferry port. The Muse is also an art gallery featuring for your viewing pleasure and for sale the works of prominent and emerging artists from the Milwaukee area. It is ideally and conveniently located in Bay View - one of Milwaukee's trendiest neighborhoods. The guesthouse accommodates 6 people. Parties of up to 10 people can be accommodated by adding rooms available in the bed and breakfast inn on the first floor of the house. Please inquire of the owners the options and terms of adding these additional rooms.

Bay View, overlooking Lake Michigan on the city's southeast side, is home to an abundance of Milwaukee's newest restaurants, popular bars, eclectic shops and galleries, the Avalon theater, verdant parks, the Oak Leaf bike trail, a seasonal farmer's market and Humboldt Park's summer Chill on the Hill weekly music festival. Some are just steps away, and all are within walking distance. In this neighborhood there is so much to do that you never need to leave it!


The Muse Gallery Guesthouse is the perfect guesthouse for Bay View residents to host out-of-town guests, as well as the perfect place for guests to be able to entertain in their home-away-from-home. Close to downtown for business travelers. Also close to the Bradley Center and Miller Stadium for sports enthusiasts visiting town for ball games. The Muse Gallery Guesthouse provides inspiring accommodations for artists/actors/theater and art critics in town for openings.

New in 2015... The Muse Gallery Guesthouse has expanded to include two bed and breakfast rooms with ensuite bathrooms on the first floor of the building that can be rented in addition to the second floor guesthouse to accommodate an additional 4 guests. Please inquire about availability of the these rooms if your party wishes to expand into the whole house by renting the bed and breakfast rooms in addition to the guesthouse. Additional charges will apply when renting the bed and breakfast rooms and breakfast can be included.
