This place was a pleasure to stay in. The hostess, Jennifer, saw to it that all our needs were addressed in a pleasant manner. She was helpful in giving feedback on area Things To Do and Places To Eat. The room was very comfortable with nice amenities included (guest bottle of wine and candies in the room). The morning breakfast was delicious, and Jennifer visited wit us during that time.

I rented a room at the B and B for a solo weekend writing retreat. It’s a beautiful, historic home and Jennifer is very friendly and welcoming. The place is easy walking distance to downtown. Lovely and cozy. I did wish there was a desk in my room, or a table and chairs in the common area to sit and write, but there’s plenty of cafes and coffee shops to pop to if needed. My room let in great sunshine and overlooked the garden. I enjoyed writing outside on the porch too when the weather was nice.

Thank you so much for the 5-star review and we are so happy you had a nice time. We do have tables in some rooms however, we do have a lap table in all rooms. We are glad you enjoyed our coffee shops and downtown area. It does many for a nice easy walk and seeing all our town has to offer. We look forward to your return stay!

Super hosts that think of all the little details for your stay from white noise machine to pillow mist to all the toiletries you could need. I would come back again only next time hoping the weather were with less rain.

This B&B is a gorgeous retreat in a quiet romantic country town of Wisconsin. The house is beautiful and the host has thought of everything, from comfy bedding, bike storage, early morning coffee and INCREDIBLE breakfast. I reveled in the details. The accommodation is perfectly located to ride both the Elroy-Sparta and La Crosse trails. The host also offers trail passes and a shuttle at extra cost. I will be back to ride the La Crosse trail!
