My family chose the historic Wilson School House to gather from Maine, California and Arizona. We were attending a family wedding along the Mighty Mississippi and wanted to be together. The school house was the perfect place for our family reunion. We were close to La Crosse and the rest of the wedding party. The historic educational artifacts made for... More

We stayed for just two nights but had a wonderful stay. Everything we could have needed was there - linens, toiletries, coffee and juice, and the decor was fun and antique and the furniture comfortable.

The Schoolhouse is very charming and quaint. It s peaceful and very clean. It has a convenient location for our birding excursions. It is so nice, we've been here three times and I'm sure we will be back again in the future.

My sister and I rented the schoolhouse for one night to attend a conference. The place was great. It was bright and cheery with lots of sunlight. It had everything you needed to cook meals and also provided info for dining out. They had lots of interesting information about the renovation and history of the schoolhouse. The hosts were wonderful... More

We rented the schoolhouse for one night with our friends and their kids. We were able to sleep 4 adults and 6 kids amongst all of the bedding options. The main floor of the Inn was really cool and open. It was neat to see the historic elements of the school, including the chalkboard and built-in book cases. The space... More

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

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
