The Wilson Schoolhouse is fantastic. Our family stayed here for a week of summer vacation. The building has been transformed into a terrific, unique and fun place to stay. It is very well equipped and maintained. The kitchen had everything one would need. The bedrooms and baths were decorated very nicely. There was plenty of room for group activities, which... More

Not many times you can stay in such a unique place. Quiet, open, interesting and comfortable, the Wilson Schoolhouse Inn is a real find in a cookie cutter world of hotels and motel chains. Very spacious and quite, with historical flavor. Like staying in a little museum. If you have well behaved kids, they will love it. Truly one of... More

"The Bags are Loaded" is an Autumn friends/family reunion begun in 1993. Some friends and some family...some from Minnesota, some from Wisconsin and some from Illinois gather each October to enjoy ''girl time''!! We always stayed in a different location somewhere half way between Minnesota and Illinois, until we found the Schoolhouse in 2006!! We decided that the Schoolhouse met... More

The Wilson Schoolhouse is a superb place to stay. Clean, beautiful rooms, modern, well equipped kitchen, hospitable hosts, enormous windows, and lovely yard. Juices, cereal and granola bars were much appreciated! Fun place to stay for children as well as adults!

My husband and I spent Memorial Day weekend at the Wilson Schoolhouse to celebrate our 15 wedding anniversary. We really enjoyed the stay. I think the kitchen is better stocked with cooking gear than my own! We had a great time enjoying the big open space of the main level. You could easily have several more people stay in the... More

We booked the Schoolhouse for a weekend and really loved the feel of the place! You can just feel the history of the building the minute you walk in the door. The innkeepers are wonderful and filled us in on the history of the Inn as well as things to do in the surrounding area. There is nothing missing from... More

Large and well appointed. Great location and very quiet, beautiful grounds. I went to a one room school house so it brought back many wonderful memories. We are coming back to enjoy the fall colors. The owners are wonderful to work with. We are very thankful to have found this place.

We have stayed at the Wilson Schoolhouse 4 of the last 5 years on our visits to LaCrosse. Absolutely fantastic place - quiet, clean, laid back and cool as all get out. I love the charm and history of this place and all of the friends we've brought with us have loved it. I can't say enough good things about... More

The owners were so kind and easy to communicate with. We stayed with friends and their 2-year-old over Easter weekend. LOTS of room for the 2-year-old to run around but still stay safe, and they had multiple baby items available - crib, high chair, etc. 2 bathrooms full of towels, shampoo, and soap. Many cable channels, extra OJ and granola... More

My wife and I needed a place to stay while we looked for a house (we are relocating to La Crosse). While we were traveling for business, we wanted our experience to be fun and romantic, as well, and that is exactly what we got. We have only positive things to say. The Schoolhouse is large, beautiful, quiet, and peaceful.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The old schoolhouse desks are replaced by modern, comfortable furniture in the restored Wilson Schoolhouse. Where students once studied, you can now relax in comfort surrounded by Wisconsin hills, just a mile from the beautiful upper Mississippi River.​ The Wilson school was built in 1917 and functioned as a one-room school until 1965. It was recently restored and elegantly furnished to retain the "open" atmosphere of the original schoolhouse. It still maintains much of its original character and charm with the original slate blackboard and school desks. The schoolhouse is listed on the City of La Crosse, the State of Wisconsin, and National Register of Historic Buildings. It is located in a rural setting on 12 acres of woods, fields, and gardens only 8 minutes from historic downtown La Crosse. Rental includes the entire schoolhouse and will comfortably accommodate 2 to 8 adults during their stay in La Crosse, WI. ... more   less
