Great small town B&B

My partner and I stayed here for two nights in October in the Master suite. Jennifer was helpful, kind, and an excellent cook! The rooms were very well maintained and we were so comfortable. Will definitely stop again if visiting in the area.

Home Away from Home

5 on August 20, 2017

From the minute we walked in the door we felt at home. We probably could have spent the entire time in our beautiful suite. The breakfasts were delicious and such fun conversation with the other guests. Jennifer was above and beyond helpful. The next time we are in the area we will definitely stay here.

Innkeeper Response
We are extremely grateful for your review. We believe that business is all about people and the greatest compliments we can receive are those that highlight the commitment we delivered. Your review makes a difference to us and it is incredibly helpful as a way to introduce others to what we do here. Thank you

Franklin Victorian Bed and Breakfast was lovely

5 on July 30, 2017

Franklin Victorian Bed and Breakfast was lovely. They sent an email a couple of days in advance with clear directions to the B&B. Jennifer met us when we arrived and gave us a tour. The room was welcoming. We appreciated the mini-fridge with sparkling water and juices and the snacks. The breakfast was delicious. They made me vegetarian patties because I don't eat meat. I liked the thought. I would definitely recommend this Bed and Breakfast..

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to share your time with us and future guests or ours. We are constantly hard at work doing everything we can to deliver high quality experiences to every one who walk thru our door.

Great Place if You Want to Bike the Trails!

4.8 on July 21, 2017

The hostess is quite thoughtful in the little extras placed strategically for guests. There are plenty of refreshments and snacks, early morning coffee before breakfast, and delicious hot breakfast, extra toiletries in case any were forgotten, storage for bikes, and candies and a small bottle of wine in the room. One can tell that much thought is given as to what makes guests feel welcome and appreciated. I highly recommend this B & B.

About the innkeepers

We moved to Sparta, Wisconsin in 2002 and are enjoying running an award winning bed and breakfast ever since. Jennifer wanted to own and run a bed and breakfast. With her interior design background, it only seemed natural. Both Jennifer and Steve had grown up in La Crosse, Wisconsin. Because of their love of the Midwest and their family ties in Wisconsin, they wanted to return to their roots. We love what we are doing, so come visit we would love meeting you!
