Innkeepers are generous, great storytellers, and excellent cooks. Goats and other animals are friendly. Great location: lots to do on-site and nearby. Relaxing and fun.


An Unforgettable Stay

5 on June 29, 2015

We stayed at Rainbow Ridge as we passed through La Crosse on our way down the Mississippi and were so delighted that we did. Situated in a beautiful, peaceful part of Wisconsin it was wonderful to not only enjoy a comfortable bed and fantastic breakfast but to take in the sights and sounds of the farm too. Cindy and Donna are wonderful hosts and very generous in letting us see some of the work they do, explore the site and give us their time to talk about what to see and do in the area and all about life running the farm. It was such a shame that we only had one night here on our journey as we could have easily spent an entire day just exploring and enjoying the farm, let alone the surrounding parts of Wisconsin. Only a short distance from La Crosse it was wonderful to have the combination of convenient proximity to the town and at the same time being out in the wide open countryside and the fresh air. An unforgettable stay and if ever we find ourselves anywhere near the area again, we wouldn't hesitate to think of Rainbow Ridge as our first choice for somewhere to stay.


City kids love a farm

My children, eleven-year-old twins, had an absolute blast staying at Rainbow Ridge. What an educational experience, too! Cindy and Donna taught them a great deal and were patient and understanding as my city kids and I fumbled our way through feeding and milking goats. We created memories that will last a lifetime.


Wonderful Weekend!

My husband and I needed a little getaway, and we could not have been happier with our time at Rainbow Ridge. Breakfast was amazing, the rooms were clean and comfortable, and we were encouraged to interact with the animals. I will definitely be going back, and we look forward to seeing how big the babies get!


Lovely Country B&B

I really enjoyed my stay. The room was clean and cozy with a beautiful view of the pond and grounds. Breakfast was delicious and nutritious. I especially enjoyed the farm fresh eggs produced on site! Great company too. I'll be back!


Wonderful experience

Rainbow Ridge b&b in Onalaska, WI exceeded my expectations. The staff was very pleasant. The room was very nice. Breakfast was wonderful. The location of Rainbow Ridge is very scenic. Highly recommended.


Idyllic Surroundings

Two night stay with a 4 and 5 year old in November..went for the experience of a farm and animals for the children. They loved it and the innkeeper got sleds out for them the morning after an inch of snow--they had a wonderful time. The first night we were there, a friend of the innkeepers took the girls and let them throw hay and feed--they were thrilled with that hands-on experience! Being able to see animals up close was definitely a great experience for them and one I am sure will be remembered. The beds were wonderful--I slept soundly both nights and I am usually a terrible sleeper. The breakfast was wonderful and amazing. The only things that weren't wonderful--they have deep clawfoot tubs that beg for a long, hot bath...but I could only get five to six inches of hot water before it was gone. I tried at night, then in the morning--and it was the same each time. I tried the shower but it didn't work very well in the blue room. My daughter had a similar experience. Also the lighting was inadequate in the blue room bath for make-up, and the lamp by the bureau mirror in the bedroom didn't work. A bit better bath lighting, reglazing the old and dingy-looking tubs and doing something about the hot water supply would definitely enhance the experience!


Best B&B

Needs some work

My husband and I stayed here for an evening. We felt like we were invading their space. The bed was very comfortable but the door didn't shut all the way and the bathroom had cobwebs. The breakfast was advertised to have local items and yogurt. The eggs were farm fresh but they did not have real maple syrup or yogurt.
