Beautifully restored schoolhouse with lots of history but modern amenities for a wonderful stay. Lots of light in the main room, with a great kitchen for cooking a meal or for those who enjoy watching and chatting with those who cook. The hosts are very attentive and had thought of many details for comfort, snacks and beauty. But very respectful... More

My family rented this schoolhouse when we were in La Crosse for a funeral. It was the perfect location and accommodations for my family to be able to gather to celebrate my grandmothers life and relax/decompress. I would highly recommend the Wilson Schoolhouse Inn for anyone heading to the area.

I met my niece and sister for a girls weekend. Wonderful! Spacious and clean. Easy to find everything we needed. We left with plans to tell our friends and hope to stay there again. Comfortable furniture and great kitchen! Books to read, games to play and literature that helped us find out where to order pizza, rent a movie 😊

I can't believe this historic schoolhouse is available for travelers to stay and at such an affordable price. Fresh flowers greeted us on the kitchen table. The kitchen and family/ living room is spacious. Look up at the wonderful wood panel ceiling. Beautiful hardwood floors and ornamental rugs throughout. This place is very unique and memorable. So glad the owners... More

We had a most enjoyable stay in this old renovated schoolhouse. Best place to stay in La Crosse! It's truly a gem. The owners are very accommodating and welcoming. The location is great, and placed among the rolling hills of La Crosse.

You are immersed in a woodland setting yet you are just minutes from downtown. It is such fun to stay in a piece of history so lovingly maintained. Plus the schoolhouse is so much more comfortable than a hotel. The owners are friendly, organized and helpful. We will definitely be coming back. Note: You will get some road noise since... More

My family was planning to stay 3 nights on a visit last September and ended up extending our stay an extra night because we enjoyed staying in the Wilson Schoolhouse Inn so much! The word "inn" in the name is a bit misleading. It's not a hotel or bed and breakfast but you are renting the entire schoolhouse, which has... More

Six high school friends spent a wonderful weekend this February at the Wilson Schoolhouse Inn. We were all very excited to see it, and were not disappointed. It is a wonderful, spacious, yet intimate space. It is very clear that Lizbeth and Richard take great pride in what they have accomplished with their loving restoration of this historic landmark. They... More

I met two of my best girlfriends here for the weekend (I'm from Minneapolis, they're from Madison) and we had a wonderful time! Lisbeth and Richard were very communicative throughout the booking process and met me when I arrived to show me around. The inn is gorgeous, cozy, comfortable and homey. My friends and I spent a little time wandering... More

We spent the weekend at Wilson Schoolhouse Inn and enjoyed our time there very much! It's a wonderful combination of character and charm, with comfortable and well-appointed details. The large living space is perfect for cooking big meals and relaxing with friends or family.

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
