Reviewed August 12, 2011

A very relaxing B & B stay with a great view of the Mississippi. Even if your room is not one with a river view, the front porch and balconey provide a great place to relax and watch the river roll by in the evening. This was also the roomiest B&B that I can recall staying in and the breakfast was made to order.

I looked at a lot of different options for staying in Alma, Pepin, Wabasha, Lake City, Red Wing, etc... and ended up at the Tritsch House partly because of the photos and the information on the website, www.thetritschhouse.com.

Extremely pleased with this place. The house is beautifully restored and tastefully decorated with gorgeous period-appropriate furniture, but minimally so - not a lot of knick-knacks and crap around cluttering the experience. Very clean.

The Innkeeper said that the Belle of Alma room is rented most frequently, but we looked at all the rooms and were so glad that we were in the Gessel Room - I loved the huge bathroom (probably a converted bedroom). This room actually feels a lot bigger than how it looks in the pictures on the website - very spacious. Bed was fantastic - had a great sleep.

I liked that there was a wine fridge in the kitchen and glasses & corkscrew in each room. Breakfast was great - made to order eggs & bacon, and with 2 kinds of homemade jam (made by the innkeeper's mother) to go on the toast/muffins. Very nice touch! Free wi-fi, too.

Service: friendly and welcoming, but not overly in your business - great.

Room Tip: river view = Belle of Alma; beautiful room=Gessel

Very nice accomodations in this Victorian style home. Updated bath w/shower AND a very large whirlpool tub in the room!!! Great bed/bedding, etc. Air conditioned. Beautiful woodwork and furniture. We happened to find this place on the web, and they only had 1 room left, so we took it. We wanted to jump on our motorcycle to celebrate 28 years of marriage on this little overnight "get away" that was hardly planned! We love riding through the "dug ways" of Buffalo County, just east of Alma. Johnny, the owner...a young guy, was very easy to visit with and steered us right with the restaurant choice that night too. The only thing, was...he didn't want us playing pool and breaking the balls after 10pm. Alas...we turned in and enjoyed the room:)

What a nice surprise for a B&B. It is run by a great young man, who made us feel right at home. Breakfast isn't the usual stuffy- fancy foods that my husband could care less about. After a morning walk around town, we came back and had a "real" breakfast in the recently remodeled kitchen. We will be back.

My husband and I stayed at this beautiful bed and breakfast on our recent bicycling vacation from Minneapolis to LaCrosse.
We arrived late in the afternoon after riding 40 miles from Redwing. The innkeeper had informed us that his father would be greeting us and checking us in. Our host was waiting as we trudged up the driveway. He helped us stow our bikes in the garage and offered us a cold drink before giving us the tour of the home. The home, built in the early 1900s, has been fabulously restored and updated by the innkeeper, Johnny Elliot. The rooms maintain all the charm and feel of the old Victorian home but with classy modern updates. We stayed in the Walser room, which was equipped with wine glasses, a jacuzzi tub, couch, and posh bed. The towels and bath mat were also incredibly luxurious, a perfect thoughtful extra touch. We really enjoyed the lovely porches with a view of the Mississippi.
We had dinner and lunch again the next day at a restaurant our host recommended, Kate and Gracie's. Both meals were delicious. An ample breakfast was served at the time of our choosing. Various breads and English Muffins to toast, fruit, fresh sticky rolls, hard-boiled eggs, cereal, juice, coffee, it was quite a spread. The innkeeper's mother was friendly and hospitable. We enjoyed chatting with her as we ate in the kitchen.
We will DEFINITELY be back to this Bed and Breakfast. We're planning a weekend with friends along the river, staying at the Tritsch House. We are so delighted to have found this gem of a getaway.

A great place to stay on the Mississippi in Alma, WI

We recently returned from a weekend in Alma, WI at The Tritsch House B&B. What a find! Alma is an old Mississippi River town in Wisconsin that is being regentrified, and it has some real gems, among them Tritsch House.

This Queen Anne vintage home has been restored with private baths and jacuzzis in all but one room. The home has 4 decks available to all guests well-equipped with chairs and tables for reading, taking in the sun/shade, or just relaxing with a beverage. The kitchen is available to guests with a refridgerator, and a wine cooler refridgerator for storing items you may wish to use in your room. Rooms are equipped with wine glasses, a couch, flat screen TV and wonderful beds. An ample breakfast was available each morning which included, yogurt, juice, fresh rolls from the local bakery, breads to toast, hard boiled eggs, cereal varieties and fresh fruit. The young man who owns the home is very particular and the home is well kept and clean.

Alma has many good places to eat, a unique bakery, coffee houses, and many shops to browse all within walking distance of Tritsch House, so once we parked our car, we didn't use it again until we left town.

There are no hotels in the city, so staying at a B&B, or one of the small Mom and Pop motels on the edge of town or in a nearby town are the only option to enjoying this town for more than just a drive-through experience.

www.thetritschhouse.com is the website I used to find this gem!
