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!

We have stayed here twice and both times have been great. Each room was comfy and breakfast was delicious. We will definitely come back again - probably this winter when we can go snowshoeing and skiing.

A beautiful home, most of the original home has been restored. Jenny and Steve were warm and friendly. All the details were thought of - from robes and slippers, bubble bath, magazines, games, beverages and cookies. Very clean. Hopefully we'll be back!

Charming with all the amenities you could ever want. Breakfast was outstanding! Regret that we couldn't stay longer but if we are ever in the general area again we will go out of our way to stay here.

We just returned from a wonderful overnight stay at the elegant and very historic Franklin Victorian located in a residential area. When we pulled up, we knew immediately that we had made the right choice for our bed and breakfast experience. The website portrays exactly the outside and inside of this magnificent grand victorian. We were met by the friendly... More

We stayed for 2 nights and absolutely loved this bed and breakfast. Jennifer has thought of everything to make the stay a great experience. A beautiful home with all the amenities you could ever want. And a delicious breakfast each morning. If you are not sure what to do in the area, literature is available and restaurant menus are available.... More
