Nestled in the scenic city of Oshkosh, Wisconsin, the Braywood Inn is a hidden gem that combines historic elegance with modern comforts. With its rich history and proximity to notable attractions, this boutique inn offers a truly unique experience for travelers. 


History and Location:

The Braywood Inn was originally constructed in 1867 by the Rich Family. After the Rich Family sold the property, the house had several different owners until finally in 1928 it was sold to Hannah Goodwin. “Belle,” as she was called, ran it as a men’s boarding house, calling it “Bachelor’s Hall.”

In October 2004, Scott and Nicole Brayton purchased the home with the intention of making it the premier Oshkosh B&B. In April 2021, the property was purchased by Michelle and Kendal Watwood. Wanting to extend the legacy of the previous owners, the property was renamed the Braywood Inn and has transitioned from a B&B to a “boutique style inn” which includes a continental breakfast and welcome basket in your room.

Situated in a picturesque neighborhood, Braywood Inn benefits from its central location. The inn's proximity to Downtown Oshkosh allows guests to easily explore local attractions, including museums, art galleries, boutiques, and restaurants. The location doesn't get better than this!
