Where Staying Away From Home Feels More Like Being Home

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.

A Difference You Can Feel From the Moment You Check-In

It’s Like a Home-Away-From-Home

That’s how guests describe our properties after staying with us. It begins with the freedom of our self-guided check-in process and continues through to the styling of our shared lounge spaces, our fully furnished communal kitchens and the sleep-inducing Brooklinen bedding in every room. When you stay at Kinn, you can expect the perfect mix of hotel and home.

Always Located By The Action

Whether you like to stay somewhere that has a neighborhood vibe or whether you prefer to be amidst the sights and sounds of the city center, Kinn guesthouse will always place you at the crossroads of the best food, retail, art and business scenes. Perfect for mingling with the locals, creating memories and maybe even making lifelong friends.

Share Common Spaces & Stories

We love when people come together to share their common experiences. Our decked out communal kitchens are the perfect place to do just that. Fire up the pro series range and while you are slinging ingredients…don't be surprised if a fellow guest chats you up, shares a story, a recipe, or perhaps even a tip for the perfect blanched kale salad.


Bay View

Nestled in one of Milwaukee’s most vibrant neighborhoods, the Bay View guesthouse is our flagship location. It’s where the Kinn story began and that story is still unfolding every day, with every new stay. This 8-room guesthouse offers spacious rooms with high ceilings, a fully furnished communal kitchen to prepare meals and, for guests looking to immerse themselves in the local scene, walk right out the door onto famed Kinnickinic Avenue, where the area’s most eclectic shops, eateries and pubs await.
