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.
