I Scream, You Scream . . .

There’s something to scream about again down at the Walker House.  And, it’s not ghosts.  Owners Kathy and Dan Vaillancourt report: “the ghosts have left the building.”

The Villancorts have entrusted much of this operation to three Mineral Point lads on summer break after their first year of college — Todd Tibbits, Alex Trollop and Garrett Rose.

In addition to dining, the Walker House offers 9 charming rooms for lodgers, each one featuring the work of local artists. In fact, this weekend the hotel rooms are filled with a local wedding party.

For those looking for ice cream and pizza, the Walker House has plenty of seating options available.

There’s the outdoor patio . . .

The pub . . .


And not, one, but two candle-lit caves.


So, come on down to the Walker House for a ghost-free good time – starting today!!  Hours (for now) are Friday 4-9pm; Saturday 4-9; and Sunday 2-7.
