Jennifer has done an amazing job of restoring and furnishing this beautiful old home. The Breakfasts are gourmet with beautiful table settings of china, crystal and linens. Beds and... More

Used this as a starting point for cycling for a couple of days. Beautiful accommodations, friendly service. Very oriented to cyclists (even have a bike wash station outside, which we didn't there but could have really used at our prior stop!) Quite convenient to both Elroy-Sparta and LaCrosse River trails. Sparta doesn't have a ton of dining options, but Taste... More

There is no detail that Jennifer and Steve have not thought of. Their hospitality is amazing and everything about this B&B is top notch. The rooms are beautifully decorated, the house itself takes you back to another era. And let's not forget Jennifer's breakfasts. They are delicious....I felt like I was on a cruise ship. I highly recommend this for... More

Owners do a wonderful job-- very friendly and accommodating. Delicious breakfasts! (Can even make them GF!) Shuttle service to Elroy to begin the bike trail was a nice extra touch. -- All in all a very nice place to stay !

We stayed at this lovely inn for the second time. Our room was comfortable, clean and inviting. We used the sound machine to go to sleep. The breakfasts were delicious and filling. My husband even stepped out of his comfort zone and tried a couple things he normally wouldn't have. When we departed, the hostess said she'd love to have... More

We came here for our 16th anniversary and had a nice visit. First experience at a bed and breakfast. Our expectations were exceeded. Breakfast was tasty and room was super clean! Would definitely recommend this place if your in the area.

I stayed at the Franklin Victorian while on business and found everything I needed. Jennifer was gracious enough to make me a breakfast "to go" because I had to be out the door at a very early hour, which I deeply appreciated. The house is located in a well-maintained neighborhood with easy access to downtown stores and businesses; I hope... More

We were there for a mid week getaway before the peak season, so it was quiet. Room was clean and comfortable and had all the amenities that we could need: plenty of towels, robe, hairdryer, etc. Outside of the room is a buffet stocked with fixings for hot drinks as well as cold drinks in a little fridge. You are... More

Not only is this a beautiful B&B, but Jennifer and Steve are the "hostess wit the mostest." They have all the special amenities that make for a great B&B stay. I can't say enough about the wonderful breakfast we were served. We were there for 3 nights and each breakfast was different but equally delicious. Jennifer is a fabulous cook.... More
