I want to stay for my wedding night but we won’t be able to arrive until very late. Can you accommodate us?
Many couples choose to spend their wedding night at the Astor House and we love to be a part of the start of a new marriage. Since couples usually arrive late at night after their reception, we make arrangements to provide you with a key so you can let yourself in rather than waking up the innkeeper.
May we bring 2 cars when we stay at the Astor House?
We have off street parking at the house to accommodate one vehicle per guestroom. If you happen to be bringing two cars, it helps to call us ahead of time so that we can plan for the second vehicle.

Some rooms have DVD players. A DVD player can be added to a room upon request.
Do you have videos available for guests to borrow?
We have a limited number of DVDs available for loan to guests, and there is a video rental store nearby.
Is Internet access available?

What is a continental plus breakfast?
Our Continental plus breakfast includes a prepared fruit item, a muffin or bagel, or a filled specialty bread that changes from day to day. We also offer coffee, three different varieties of tea, orange juice and skim milk. Often an additional hot item such as our popular banana chocolate French toast is on the menu.
A word about the coffee. Your innkeepers love a great cup of coffee. We are committed to serving the same to our guests. Each pot of coffee is individually brewed for each breakfast from fresh ground beans with filtered water. The coffee is served to you moments after it is brewed. You won’t experience coffee here that has been sitting on a hot plate or in a carafe for a long period of time. We obtain our beans from area roasters where we buy it in small batches to assure freshness. If you love good coffee, whether regular or decaf, you will be glad that you decided to stay at the Astor House.
May I have breakfast in my room?
Most weekends it is possible to have breakfast delivered to your door in a basket. Busy Packer game weekends may be an exception. Upon check in you will be given a menu from which you can select breakfast items and indicate whether you would prefer to have breakfast in our parlor, in your room or on the front porch (weather permitting).
Do you serve lunch or dinner?
No. As a bed and breakfast, we are only able to serve breakfast and only to our guests.

Where does the name Astor House come from?
The house is named for the neighborhood in which it is located. The area is known as the Astor Historic Neighborhood. The neighborhood gets its name from John Jacob Astor, the famous east coast entrepreneur who owned the American Fur Trading Company. Mr. Astor also owned the land in the neighborhood that back in the 1800’s became known as the town of Astor.
