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

A clean quiet B&B. Rooms are thoughtfully appointed... Jennifer has thought of all the amenities. Location is great. It's within a mile of the Elroy Sparta and La Crosse bike trails. The inn has a bike barn to securely store bikes over night. . We purchased our trail passes and the shuttle through the inn. This worked out perfectly. After... More

Very clean. Owner went out of her way to take care of whatever we needed. Good breakfast. Located close to bike trails. Walking distance to good restaurants. Safe storage provided for bikes. Close enough to Lacrosse for more fine dining and shopping. One of the nicer B&B's we've stayed at!

Stayed last year also. Beautiful Victorian home. Hosts have anticipated every possible need. Close proximity to bike trails. Very nice breakfast at one sitting (8:30am). Short walk to small downtown area with good restaurants. They also sell the most comfortable bedding (sheets).

I recently decided to do an item on my "Bucket List:" Ride the Elroy-Sparta Bike Trail. My husband was on a fishing trip and I figured I'd head to Wisconsin and see how much of the trail I could handle in one day. The weather conditions were perfect and after 5 hours and 13 minutes I had completed 67 miles!... More

This was an amazing B&B. Jennifer was so nice, and her breakfasts were gourmet AND delicious AND healthy. She was particularly helpful with my friend who is gluten and lactose-intolerant. The rooms were not only spic and span, but they were sweetly, intricately decorated. She had thought of everything, including soft bathrobes. There were cookies in the evening, coffee available...

The innkeeper here has thought of everything. There's a well-stocked buffet with hot & cold drinks, a full cookie jar and lots of other treats. Books, travel guides and maps in the common room along with TV/DVD. Rooms are cozy and comfortable with robes, scuffs, nice toiletries, clock radio, CD player, sound machine and a basket of little things like... More

My husband and I stayed in the Master Suite in June, 2013 to celebrate our 36th wedding anniversary. The room was spacious, with two Queen Anne chairs, a small dining table with two chairs, a lovely fireplace and mantle, and great lighting. The king bed was very comfortable, with super soft linens. Jennifer even provides a CD player with a... More
