Our boutique guesthouse concept offers a personalized lodging experience you won’t find anywhere else. Kinn Guesthouse was designed to offer you a memorable, one-of-a-kind take to escape the excess of old-school luxury and replace it with a more modern take of what luxury means for today's traveler.
We do that by intentionally staying away from 400-room properties, white-gloved doormen, bell hops, and silver-domed room service. Instead, we offer guests authentic experiences that focus on modern luxuries, like the efficiency of self-check-ins, contactless service, beautiful spacious rooms with modern amenities, communal chef’s kitchens and the freedom to experience a property on their own terms. We do all that in carefully curated spaces that feel more like a home-away-from home.
We' re proud to be the first-of-its-kind hotel in Milwaukee and we promise our unique combination of home, luxury, and comfort under one roof is something you’ll see and feel in every aspect of your stay.
If you like to stay in places that are a little more tucked away but still have plenty of local culture to explore, then our Bay View guesthouse is perfect for you. Located right on Kinnickinic Avenue and only a 5-minute drive to downtown, the Bay View guesthouse is nestled in one of Milwaukee’s hippest neighborhoods. It offers eight spacious rooms with high ceilings, fully furnished communal kitchens to prepare meals and, for guests looking for an authentic Milwaukee experience, walk right out the door to explore the area’s most eclectic shops, eateries and pubs.
Where staying away from home feels more like being home.
