“We didn't want to go home!”
Reviewed May 17, 2012

This is the MOST fantastic place to stay in La Crosse! My new husband and I planned our wedding and reception at the Bentley- Wheeler (we stayed in the ballroom suite) and had my out-of-town family stay in the other rooms. We originally planned to stay with Ken and Jay for 4 nights and ended up staying 6! The rooms are fantastic, the location is gorgeous and the service is impeccable. The Ballroom suite has a full kitchen in it.....wonderful for a long stay!! All 3 bedrooms in the main house are beautifully decorated and well appointed. Every morning is like Christmas when you peak out your window to see what the "breakfast fairy" has left for you. Warm scones or muffins, juice, milk, yogurt....you name it! The towels are fluffy, the linens are crisp and the atmosphere is warm and inviting...what more could you ask for? Oh, and the claw-foot tubs? OMG!
On our wedding day, they made sure everything went smoothly.I couldn't thank them enough for their extra attention to detail.....they made us feel at ease just knowing that they were there.
Ken and Jay really went out of their way to make sure that everything about our wedding was over and beyond what was expected. We can't thank them enough and HIGHLY recommend that your first choice in La Crosse is the Bentley- Wheeler!

Travelers seeking a memorable experience should plan a stay at the Bentley-Wheeler B&B in La Crosse. The property includes a beautifully restored main house with a varied choice of rooms as well as a guest house, which is perfect for a family wishing for some privacy and pampering at the same time. Both offer comfort and grace under the watchful eyes of the owners, who do everything possible to make guests feel welcome, from warm scones in the morning to soft duvets at night. The convenient location on a lovely main boulevard offers a quiet setting just blocks from downtown. We will continue to return every time we travel to La Crosse.

Room Tip: When making your reservation, describe your wishes to the owners. They will choose the perfect space...

We had a wonderful time at the Bentley-Wheeler farm house. We loved the kitchen and coffee area. It was so nice to be able to bring snacks and not have to pay crazy prices or go out for every little thing! The four of us get together every year...just for a few days so having the whole place to ourselves let us focus on the visit and just being together. We had a lot of laughing and catching up to do on our 'girl getaway' and we have never been called quiet. Having the whole house was perfect! We were like little kids choosing our rooms (they are all beautiful) and having two bathrooms was awesome! The price when split four ways was amazingly affordable. Better than we could have done sharing a room at any hotel chain with added bonus of always being together and able to run around in comfy clothes. Normally, we go somewhere new each year. After being in your beautiful house...we decided that return visits and traditions might be a good thing! Thanks for sharing this beautiful home with us!!
The added bonus is the house is within walking distance of some great restaurants and an organic food co-op.

Room Tip: All rooms are great. They are upstairs - so must be able to climb stairs.

I'll keep this short and sweet. My wife and I stayed in the ballroom suite and had a great time. The owners delivered a tasty, locally-made breakfast to our room every morning (finally, a B&B with choices for breakfast!) and the suite was amazing, at a great nightly rate. We felt like we had our own house to ourselves because the suite was so big. Yes, we did have a dance together since it is a ballroom. The owners were great as well. They were super-friendly and even let my wife take the Twilight Series of books home with us (she got hooked on them while staying here). She tried to ship them back after reading them, but they told her to keep them. Who does that? Oh, wait, the owners of this B&B do.

If passing through the area again, we'd definitely stay again. You should too. The whole area is a hidden gem in the upper Midwest.

We live just "up the river" from LaCrosse, on the Great River Road in Fountain City. As we were attending a wedding, it was easier to spend the night, dine out and travel back the next morning.
Having done this before and been disappointed with local motel accomodations, we searched out and found this B&B.
Boy, are we glad we did!
Magnificent restoration efforts and attention to detail are immediately on view as you drive up and the interior goes beyond that. The owners upgraded our stay to The Ballroom as it was available and we walked into, well...beauty. Awe inspiring, sheer beauty.
Comfortable bed, warm furnishings and the morning breakfast basket left at your door included warm cinnamon buns, fresh blueberrys and more.
As owners of our own turn-of-the-century building, we understand what it takes to undertake and complete this kind of project. The owners have not missed a thing and any traveler should not miss this opportunity.
We will be recommending this B&B to any of our clients that are looking for a unique place to rest and enjoy as they travel through the area.

My 2 sisters and I spent 2 nights in the Ballroom Suite. This space (2500 square feet) is fabulous! Never once did we feel like we were in a hotel setting, we were "home". Ken and Jay made us feel very welcome, and made sure we had everything we needed. The Breakfast basket was fantastic! Freshly made, scones, on a warm plate were delicious! Cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit and milk and juice. Even fresh coffee beans and grinder! Perfect! The house is amazing, perfectly restored, with plenty of history. Thank you so much for a great weekend!

We had just one night to stay in La Crosse and choose the Bentley- Wheeler. What a wonderful home. We travel to La Crosse occasionally (from California) and will stay here again.
