That picture makes me think of the "Don Q Inn" in Dodgeville: http://www.donqinn.net/rooms.asp
I was a kid when Don Quinn bought the barn and made it into something special. My brothers worked there as waiters. I remember when he flew the "Flying Guppy" in and either llanded it on the highway, or taxied it to the inn via the highway. I also remember the Sikorsky Skycrane lifting the steeple into place that he used as a bridal suite.

BG-you'd have like the cheese room; a vat was suspended from the ceiling on stainless steel chains, and a huge mattress made for it. Or the fireplace with 12' logs.
