Milwaukee’s Schuster Mansion Is a Delicious Opportunity for a Hungry Buyer

It’s rarer than a double-yolked egg to find a bed-and-breakfast for sale that needs no restoration or improvements.

But we found one: Wisconsin’s Schuster Mansion, which is listed with Tina Ferlindes and Tonya Thomsen of Realty Executives-Integrity for $2.2 million. The sellers are ready for a new host to take over the 9,300-square-foot mansion, which they’ve operated as an inn since 2008.

Built in 1891, the red-brick mansion is located in the Concordia District, a neighborhood 2 miles west of downtown that’s also referred to as the Bed-and-Breakfast District.

The German Renaissance Revival architectural style is a nod to Milwaukee’s German immigrants of the late 19th century. The mansion served as a single-family home from 1891 to 1924, then converted into apartments over the decades.

Nowadays, there are four themed suites and three bedrooms for guests—all but two have a private bath. There are also the owner’s quarters, a kitchen for prepping guests’ breakfasts, and a two-car garage.

Original hardwood floors, pocket doors, high ceilings, and woodwork add period charm while a conservatory, parlors, library, and formal dining room provide ample space for guests to spread out.

Business at this inn has been simply delicious.

“A lot of their guests are coming for events in the area,” such as weddings, says Thomsen. “They have a lot of return guests.”

After a successful run as innkeepers, homeowners Rick and Laura Sue Mosier are ready to retire. The Mosiers added a Victorian garden with Lannon stone pavers as well as new siding and off-street parking.

“They have really brought that property and business to what it is today,” says Ferlindes.

Laura Sue, who hosts afternoon tea for guests and nonguests alike, “dresses in period costume,” says Ferlindes, “and spends time going through the history of tea. She’s really a plethora of information relative to the family (who first lived in the house) and the city of Milwaukee.”

Schuster Mansion, which is listed on the city, state, and national historic registers, is a turnkey sale.

“All the linens, silver, and furniture (are included). There’s even a Schuster-branded vehicle,” says Thomsen.
