If you are planning on spending the night in Sparta, book a room at the Franklin Victorian B&B. The house is an architectural delight; the hospitality gracious, the accommodations restful and the breakfast scrumptious! Owner Jennifer Dunn is friendly and goes above and beyond with the myriad amenities she offers gratis, from beverages (usual sodas and waters in minifridge but... More

Can't say enough about the Franklin Victorian b & b. It is clean and spotless! We biked with our friends the 37 miles from Elroy to Sparta for one night and returned to Elroy the next day.Bikes are all locked away in a garage and there is even a bike wash. The rooms are clean and comfortable. All the amenities... More

The Franklin Victorian is very well maintained. The owners were friendly and helpful. Lots of little amenities in the room. The room was quiet and comfortable. They provide (at extra cost) a shuttle for the Elroy/Sparta trail which is helpful if you are there for biking like we were. I would recommend this place for friends.

We loved our stay here before our bike ride from Elroy back to Sparta. The room was fantastic... every need was accommodated. We used their bike shuttle to Elroy which allowed us to bike back to Sparta and our vehicle.

This was the second B&B I've stayed at, and I'm hooked. Franklin Victorian Inn set the bar high. Gracious hosts, amazing breakfasts, and ALL of the little extras. I can't think of one thing missing, but I could write about MANY things that made it an unforgettable, enjoyable experience. Thank you Jennifer and Steve! We'll be back to ride the... More

This is way better than a hotel. So nicely decorated and a wonderful breakfast. The host was very friendly and willing to answer any questions. We enjoyed our short stay and will be back again. Would love to do a murder mystery at the inn sometime.

The Franklin Victorian Inn was outstanding. Jennifer, the host, was very friendly, inviting and a wealth of knowledge of the area. The accommodations were first rate and very comfortable. Any time you are in the area it will be well worth your stop.

We had a wonderful experience at the Franklin Victorian B&B . . . can't think of anything they could have done to make our stay any more comfortable. All the little touches set them apart of from the norm . . . bathrobes, CD's of beautiful music, candies, snacks, free Netflix, games, toiletries, resources . . . besides great food... More

Starting with the beautiful exterior, you know the trip is going to be special. The house is clean and gorgeous both inside and out, and the rooms are pristine. Loved the rustic feel with updated amenities. The breakfast was superb, and the location was quiet and tranquil. If you need a weekend away to relax, it'd be tough to find... More

My husband and I wanted a weekend getaway that was both relaxing and had things that we could go and do (visit downtown Sparta and LaCrosse) and it had it all! Breakfast was incredible too! We would highly recommend staying here!
