The Inn was built in 1900 by P.J. Christofferson, M.D. He and his brother A.M. Christofferson built the first hospital in Waupaca, which is located behind the Inn and is now a group home. P.J. and his wife Adelle owned the home until Adelle passed away. It was then sold to a local chiropractor, Dr. Smith, who built the small one story building that sits behind the Inn amidst the gardens. The families of Ross and Van Ornam owned it prior to selling to Ms. Oerter in 1994. The house was converted to a bed and breakfast and after extensive updating and adding bathrooms to all the rooms, the Green Fountain was opened in the fall of 1995. Landscaping, gardens, fountain and statuary were added to unite all three properties. In 2002, the Back Door Bakery was opened followed by the Secret Garden Café where bakery and lunches were served in and outdoors. The Café remains opened all year for lunches and dinners are available now on Friday and Saturday nights. The Inn is available to host small weddings, showers, anniversary and birthday parties plus other intimate gatherings.
