“An immaculate escape”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

I'll confess to low expectations. Having registered for a conference in La Crosse, we found our way to the Bentley-Wheeler only after finding the more visible lodging options booked up. Coming across a listing for this property, I read reviews and descriptions and, mostly out of desperation, made contact to check on availability. I couldn't be more grateful for the prior deadends. The Bentley-Wheeler turned out to be a special part of our trip -- from the contact a few days prior to arrival to check on our arrival plans, to the careful warnings about ice in town, to the gracious reception, crowned by a beautifully restored house, a comfortable room, and a delightful breakfast served to accommodate our conference's schedule. We will look forward to returning for another conference, but this time we will start at the Bentley-Wheeler, and pray that they have an opening.

We have stayed at the Bentley-Wheeler several times a year and we absolutely love it. The customer service is impeccable. It is a beautiful home with wonderful service. We strongly recommend staying at the Bentley-Wheeler.

I stayed 2 nights in the Guest Suite for a conference in La Crosse. The landscaping was well manicured with a beautiful fountain in the courtyard. The Guest Suite was nicely decorated and very inviting. The breakfast picnic basket was a nice touch...not to mention delicious. The owners of the Bentley-Wheeler B&B know how to pamper their guests!

We spent five days in the guest house and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Jay was a friendly and gracious host who provided us with generous and tasty gluten free options in the daily breakfast basket. We also appreciated the dinner reservations he made for us at one of La Crosse's finest restaurants as well as tips on where to dine and must see attractions. The guest house was spacious, private, well appointed and very comfortable. There was a lovely feeling in the house of warmth and hospitality. We would definitely choose the Bentley-Wheeler again should we return to La Crosse.

We booked July 4th and 5th at this B&B. It was wonderful. The breakfast picnic basket was just fine with the fresh fruit, yogurt, scones, granola, milk and juice. We had a truly stress-free visit. The ballroom was beautiful and very comfortable, air-conditioning that we could control, and we watched the fireworks from our private balcony. Bed was great and plenty of room to hang your clothes and stash your bags out of sight, and it was quiet, no noise whatsoever from other guests. It was great to park our car off the street as well. Enjoyed chatting with Jay and Ken and meeting their birds. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this B&B.

Room Tip: Splurge... rent the ballroom. Dippy diner.

We were in town for a wedding last weekend, 4 of us rented the guest house which offered an amazing kitchen, spacious rooms, and was overall charming and private. There were only 4 of us but the guest house could easily fit 4 couples!! Would def recommend this option over any hotel! Not sure if we will ever be back in La Crosse, but if we do, we will certainly stay here!

this was my second visit to the Bentley-Wheeler, this time with my Mom and sister. We stayed in the guest house and all of us were completely charmed by the space, the food, and the overall experience I had kept the place a secret until our arrival, and both my Mom and sister were so impressed and delighted!

Jay was out of town this trip, but Ken, even with a hand injury that had put him in the ER that same day, couldn't have been a nicer, more pleasant and hospitable host.
