Is George Webb's your go-to restaurant at 3:00 a.m. when you're craving an All-American breakfast with crispy bacon and eggs, a warm stack of pancakes with maple syrup and a juicy cheeseburger? Well, now you can own the place where it all began.

George Webb's mansion in Wales, Wis. is up for sale. The mansion was built in 1895 and was the location of the very first George Webb's Restaurant. The mansion currently operates as a Pedal'rs Inn Bed and Breakfast.

“The restaurant that George Webb had actually was throughout the area here that’s open to the guest," Dee Nierzwicki said. 

But since then the mansion has been updated, upgraded, and remodeled and it currently serves as the cozy Pedal’rs Inn Bed and Breakfast.

“I have to say that the home acquired us," Nierzwicki said. 

"At the moment that we found it we were not looking for it," she also said. 

Nierzwicki acquired the home nearly 18 years ago from the Jerusalem Presbyterian Church, and opened it as a bed and breakfast in 2004. According to Nierzwicki, she’s made it a point to maintain the history of the Painted Lady Victorian while also paying homage to its previous owner.

“There’s so much detail in the house and the architectural design of the house," Nierzwicki said. 

"But there's also the detail of every moment that we had here," she also said. 

The five-bedroom, 3,748 square foot mansion is listed at $499,000.

The realtor for the mansion, Ryan Delaney, says the home has always been a place of hospitality since Webb invited people into his restaurant there, up until recently when it has served as a bed and breakfast. 

“We actually do have two clocks in our kitchen to commemorate George Webb," Nierzwicki quipped. 

Dee said the home has always been a place where hospitality happens and she hopes that trend continues and while she turns the page to begin a new chapter her only wish is that the homelands in good hands.

“I’m not giving up the industry because I’m burnt out," Nierzwicki said. 

"But with every advancement personally, you look for what’s the next new bright thing that’s going to be in your life," she also said. 

Although the property is for sale, they’re still taking reservations for the bed and breakfast and they’ll continue to do so until the home is sold.
