Welcome to 
Cameo Rose -  
Madison's Victorian 
Country Inn B&B

Welcome to a world of hospitality...


Dawn Bahr, innkeeper, in association with husband Gary Bahr, will welcome and pamper you from the moment you arrive with 5 star bed and breakfast hotel hospitality. Country Extra says Cameo Rose " sparkles with hospitality." Guests rave about Dawn's attention to detail and emphasis on cleanliness. Dawn's recommendations for fine dining, antiquing, shopping and tourism suggestions will make your vacation extra special.


Dawn gave up business administration and wanted a bed and breakfast in the country near Madison Wisconsin. Gary retired from banking and wanted a small cabin in the woods on their farm. Cameo Rose is "their" compromise. Please tell your friends, relatives and co-workers about us.


SEE the Innkeeper's Song" below and sing along to Gary's  "I Do The Time" tribute to Dawn's 25 years as an innkeeper in 2016. 

THE INNKEEPER"S SONG

NOTE: Dawn gave up business administration and wanted a bed and breakfast in the country near Madison Wisconsin. Gary retired from banking and wanted a small cabin in the woods on their farm. Cameo Rose is "their" compromise. Please tell your friends, relatives and co-workers about us.


Dawn dreamed of operating a B and B for many years. Gary use to sit at the bank and real estate office and dream of retiring early to clean house all day. Dawn has made it possible for Gary's dream to come true. In gratitude, Gary wrote a song to honor Dawn’s 15th (2006) and now 25th year (2016) as a hard working innkeeper. You may sing it to the tune of Johnny Cash’s ‘I Walk the Line’. 


After seeing the movie 'I Walk The Line" Dawn bought the soundtrack and played it 24/7 until Gary started thinking to the tune, talking in tune, cleaning to the tune and then singing in tune - thus the song.


 

I DO THE TIME


She wants a big house for a B and B.
I want a cabin… and to see the sea.
I made up plans... now do not be surprised.
Because she's mine, we compromised! 

Lent her a million for her BnB.

If I help... she says will repay me.
Now do it all... no payments do I see.
Because she's mine... I work for free!

I do the dirty dishes all the time.

I scrub the tubs and showers and de-lime.
I keep my eyes wide open for the grime.
Because she's mine; I tow the line.


I mow the trails from morning until night.
Avoiding cleaning makes it a real delight.
I sweep the walk and porch with all my might.
Because she's mine; I do not fight. 

I greet the guests with smiles that are sublime.

I clean the toilets and what guests leave behind.
I mop the floors and work and do not whine.
Because she's mine; not paid a dime. 

I do the make-work that she thinks is fine.

I’ll do it all until I’m ninety-nine.
I do the work, although I did no crime.
Because she’s mine… I do the time!
