Kinn Guesthouse

Hero 4

Connect With Milwaukee’s Trendiest Neighborhood

If you like to stay in places that are a little more tucked away but still have plenty of local culture to explore, then our Bay View guesthouse is perfect for you. Located right on Kinnickinic Avenue and only a 5-minute drive to downtown, the Bay View guesthouse is nestled in one of Milwaukee’s hippest neighborhoods. It offers eight spacious rooms with high ceilings, fully furnished communal kitchens to prepare meals and, for guests looking for an authentic Milwaukee experience, walk right out the door to explore the area’s most eclectic shops, eateries and pubs.

Get a Feel for the Bay View Area and Our Guesthouse


Or is it the other way around? Actually, it’s both. We’ve poured our heart and soul into making sure every one of our rooms is the right mix of glam and fam. Here, you can kick back after work, shopping, and venturing! We promise you will feel right at home. For example, our private baths with walk-in showers and Waterworks® fixtures, appointed art from locals, Brooklinen® bedding, comfy Omaha mattresses, Apple TV, access to our fully stocked chef’s communal kitchen, and more.

The Inspiration for Our Guesthouse Concept

What do you get when you combine a family’s history and passion for hospitality, a street name, and the abbreviation for a native word that means “mixed”? You get Kinn, a one-of-a-kind hotel experience that perfectly mixes the eclectic style of a boutique hotel with the amenities and down-home feeling of a residential rental property. Learn more about the inspiration behind our unique approach to hospitality and why we chose Milwaukee as the perfect place to start this adventure.


We have dog-friendly rooms in our Downtown Milwaukee Guesthouse. With hardwood and tile flooring throughout, messes cause us a little less stress. We also provide dog bowls for your convenience. The fee is $65 per pet with a weight limit of 65 pounds per pet. All dogs must be crated if left alone in the room. Limit of 2 pets per room. Please let us know during booking whether your best friend will be “tagging” along.



Old school meets new school, East Coast meets Midwest, with a Southern-style Italian restaurant landing right in the middle of it all. Delivering distinctly Italian cuisine that’s easy to pronounce and even easier to share, guests will enjoy seasonally inspired dishes throughout the year. Sorella serves healthy foods with elegant flavors, which are often made with locally sourced products.
