We stayed int the Tower Room. So nice to have an extra room. We visited The Tangled Hickory in Viroquo. They had music and the people were very friendly. Also visited Branches and Vernon Vineyards. Attended a Spring Fling at Vernon Vineyards with free food and a great band. Our hosts Marie and Mike were also there from the B and B. Had lots of fun. The breakfasts were so delicious. I can't wait to go back. There is a lot to do around The Driftless Area. Wonderful hosts.

My husband and I had a lovely one night stayat Westby House Inn. The room was beautiful with all of the amenities that we wanted. Breakfast was a treat and was delicious from start to finish. It's a quiet town, which is what we expected. We enjoyed dinner at the local supper club.
5 on December 16, 2016
This is a lovely B & B with beautiful public rooms and beautiful rooms to stay. Our hosts, Marie & Mike made us feel very welcome. Everything was very clean. Our breakfasts were delicious! Marie gave us great information on the area. We stayed in the Tower Room, which had room for our friends (also staying there) to join us in the evenings after sightseeing in the area. We loved it.
4.8 on July 24, 2016
This was a welcome respite from our month long trip. Very relaxing, and then Marie directed us to a fab restaurant nearby. Breakfast was truly delicious. Great place for a special event too!
4.6 on July 19, 2016
Marie was exceptional and helped us with our tour plans. Where to go and where to eat. The B & B is beautifully decorated for the Victorian time it represents. We loved the room. Would come again.

We've had several very enjoyable weekend stays at this Inn. Marie and Mike are fabulous hosts, making you feel welcome and appreciated. Breakfasts are excellent in terms of quality and presentation. The property is well maintained to the point that, returning to the same room a year later, you could almost imagine that no one else had stayed there in the meantime. We look forward to our almost annual visits.
4.6 on June 14, 2016
The property is very well maintained as showcases some nice Victorian Features. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and the date-night package was a nice surprise for my wife. Breakfast was well prepared, nice presentation and again in a very inviting atmosphere.

Never stayed in a bed and breakfast before. A beautiful home, always something new to see every time we walked around. Always felt welcomed! We felt so comfortable there, and the owners are always trying to make sure we had everything we needed. We stayed for whole weekend and the breakfast the first morning was fantastic, i actually figured that it couldn't be topped the next day but it was! Already told my whole family that they have to stay there!
5 on March 01, 2016
I recently stayed in the Rose room at this beautiful B&B. The public and guest rooms are well-appointed, with a neat display of antiques. My room was cozy with a comfortable bed. Marie is a very gracious hostess, and an excellent chef! Our breakfast was amazing. I'll certainly stay here again when I return to the area.
5 on November 19, 2015
This was a very nice way to spend a night. We had evening's but would have been a great place a certain to just sit and relax. Breakfast was delightful.

We decided to take a short road trip and in the process of reviewing " where to stay" web sites, we came across the Westby House Inn and decided to give it a try. We didn't know what to expect with a B&B, but were very impressed with the hospitality and quaintness of this B&B.

Beautiful room, elegant property -- and in the heart of fantastic scenery.

We had the library room, it was very cute and had a lot of character. The light breakfast option was definitely all we needed too; it had toast, eggs, and fruit. Yummy!
4.4 on October 08, 2015
We stayed one night on our way down the Great River Road. Mike and Marie were very helpful in helping us find things to do in the area. Our room was very clean and the whirlpool and fireplace were very nice to have. Breakfast was delicious and check-in and out were very smooth.
4.4 on September 26, 2015
We had a fabulous stay at Westby House Inn. Marie and Mike were truly wonderful hosts. They were excellent at communicating prior to our arrival, and were very helpful in suggesting things to do in the area. We loved it!
5 on September 08, 2015
Lovely inn, great hosts, fantastic breakfast. (Even the GF breakfast was yummy!!) What more do you need? It's an excellent place to stay if you're in the western Wisconsin area. There are numerous wineries within hours of the Westby, so this inn is a charming place to choose as your base for your wine tasting adventure. Just go---you'll love it!
5 on September 01, 2015
If your travel plans include an overnight stay in Wisconsin's Driftless Area, you must make the Westby House Inn your lodging choice. We just spent the weekend there again (second-time visitors) and it was even better than the first. We met ten friends there and the Westby House was our collective home for a getaway weekend together. Mike and Marie were great hosts, addressing every possible need without being "intrusive," as the B & B experience can be sometimes. The rooms at the Inn are unique and done in a Victorian fashion to match the stately ambiance of the property. Outside the main house are additional rooms, each with their own themes and special touches (the Pinewood Room is like a cabin "up north"). As for meals, the Wesby House serves fresh and unique 3-4-course breakfasts each day and even offers a little cafe for lunches and light bites later. And for those who require all the travel amenities, this Inn has free high speed wi-fi, cable TV, and all the trappings. We've grown attached to the Westby House Inn and have made it our "go to" lodging in the Driftless. You won't be disappointed.
5 on July 23, 2015
I had made a drive through visit to Westby several years ago when I saw the bed and breakfast. I thought I'd like to come back and stay there. This time I planned my trip so I could stay there. What a delightful place and Marie and Mike have done such a great job thinking of any and everything you might need. I look forward to another visit and my trips between Colorado and the Wisconsin Northwoods. Sue
4.4 on April 21, 2015
We stayed April 17/18, 2015. The Westby House is a jewel. We relaxed and enjoyed our time. Would love to go back and spend a weekend again. We would strongly encourage any one to take time and visit Marie and Mike in Westby. Thank you for your hospitality. Archie and Kimberly

The charming Westby Room was a beautiful and warm reprieve from the cold winter weather. I was in town visiting family, and everything I needed was available to me. I never left the room! The electric, heated fireplace and music provided quiet ambiance to refresh my soul before returning to the world the next day. The breakfast was wonderful, and the owners were so hospitable. I am looking forward to my next visit!
5 on November 19, 2014
We have stayed at the Westby House twice now, they have been most memorable. The Inn is beautiful, the rooms are tastefully appointed, and Mike and Marie made us feel more than like at home, more like family. We highly recommend Westby House for the next time you visit the La Crosse area.
4.6 on November 18, 2014
Stayed here for a delayed honeymoon and it was worth the wait. Our hosts were very gracious and classy. Check-in was easy. The room was amazing! The date night package was just perfect for the honeymoon. The chocolates were delicious. The fireplace and hot tub were perfect. Very thoughtful of staff to shovel side walk and brush snow off of our car. Breakfast was amazing. Only one small negative, the coffee pot had old coffee grounds in it. Other than that, our stay was amazing and we will definitely return :)
4.2 on October 13, 2014
We had a wonderful stay at the Westby House Inn. Mike and Marie were wonderful, the food was amazing and the room was beautiful. All the little extra touches were great! Would definitely stay here again!
5 on August 26, 2014
We stayed in the Atrium Room in August of 2014. We were impressed with how clean everything was. Mike and Marie were very welcoming. Marie prepared wonderful breakfasts both morning. The location of the Inn was perfect for the various activities in the area. Hope to return again!
4.8 on July 15, 2014
We had a great, relaxing stay here in July 2014. We were late on our first day for our tea appointment, but Marie kindly stayed until we arrived and served us. The room was comfortable, clean, and quiet.

Even though it was a rainy couple of days, we still had an enjoyable stay at Westby House. We came for fishing, biking, canoeing, and relaxation and the only disappointment was not being able to canoe. Westby House is a beautiful grand Victorian with beautiful furnishings. Very clean and the good breakfasts reflected the seasonal produce of the area. We definitely would stay here again.
5 on June 21, 2014
Plan to relax in clean and comfortable rooms, be served a delicious breakfast...one of the best we have ever eaten anywhere, receive warm hospitality from this delightful couple, Mike and Marie. Their recommendations for sights to see were more than what we had time for, but we will return someday to finish the list and stay there again. The Library Room is quite charming and it was hard to choose from each one. Next time, we would stay two nights. The Tower Room looks very inviting. Be sure to check out Branches Winery, great wines and another really great couple! Ole and Lena Kaffe Hus has goodies, too!
5 on June 21, 2014
The Westby House is a very nice bed and breakfast. It's a great place to relax in comfort and enjoy all it has to offer. We award it Five Stars.

House, rooms, details, hospitality--this inn has it all!
5 on June 10, 2014
My husband and I were visiting from Colorado and needed a place close to LaCrosse. We decided to stay at the Westby House and couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. Mike & Marie were such gracious hosts and everything about our stay was over the top - the linens, the food, the wine selection, they have thought of every detail! The next time we are in the area we will definitely stay here!
5 on May 15, 2014
As parents of 3 girls, get-aways are few and far between. This was JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ordered. Mike and Marie run a clean, comfy, friendly, quiet and extremely accommodating B & B. It is clear that they have a heart and passion for the work they do. My favorite part was reading about the history of the house and hearing stories from Marie. What an amazing hostess! Thanks Mike and Marie! We'll be back.
5 on April 23, 2014
We stayed here this past July and had an excellent time. This was the second time I personally stayed and the B & B Girls first time. Everything was marvelous - Mike and Marie are outstanding hosts and the hospitality is unbelievable. We booked a B&B weekend again for July 2014. We love the history with the Inn and the rooms are so cozy and the woodwork of a historic Inn warms our hearts. Can't wait until July to visit again.
5 on April 04, 2014
This was my second stay at the Westby House. This time I stayed in the Garden room. Everything was there that I could possibly want or need. Staying there is such a pleasure. The house and rooms are beautiful and everything is so clean and comfortable. Marie, one of the owners is one of the nicest most pleasant person you could meet. She's also a great cook and very knowledgable about the house and the area. I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone visting the area.
4.6 on February 18, 2014
Not only beautiful and perfectly clean, but very food-allergy friendly and accomodating that way! Marie went out of her way to add special touches to our stay here, and I can't wait to go back.
4.8 on December 18, 2013
We had a wonderful stay at Westby House Inn. We stayed in the Rose room, it was beautiful and very clean. The breakfast was delicious, loved the china and all the little extras. Marie was a gracious hostess. We will definitely come again and bring friends.
4.0 on October 23, 2013
The Scandia loft bedroom in the separate building was just right for two. The bed and choice of pillows were very good, and we slept well. The cozy sitting room was fine for reading in the evening. We appreciated the simple continental breakfast that we could eat anytime as we prepared for the day. The owner alsomgave us good ideas for dining out in the surrounding towns.
4.6 on October 17, 2013
We weren't able to take advantage of all the amenities this home had to offer. Movies, games, sitting areas, and attention to detail were evident. The breakfast was first class and the home beautiful. Marie and Mike were available and ready to address any needs we had.
4.6 on October 15, 2013
We picked Westby Inn based on the ratings at TripAdvisor and few other recommendations from other websites. This is the first time we travelled to this part of wisconsin. We were happy that we selected this B&B. Both Marie and Mike took great care of us and made us feel very comfortable. Marie also guided us to nearby scenic points and state parks near by. This really helped us in the rest of the trip going forward. Breakfast was served in the dining room set with individual tables. We enjoyed the full-course breakfast and felt as home. The Inn was beautifully decorated and I loved the Tower suite room. I will definitely return to the Westby House Inn on future travels.
5 on September 18, 2013
I have been staying at the Westby House several times per year for more than a few years now. Marie and Mike take great care of me during my stay and are very accommodating of my somewhat unusual schedule. Breakfasts are excellent, and the facility is perfect for my visits to the Westby area. I intend to spend several weekends there annually for as long as I am able.
4.8 on September 17, 2013
We picked Westby Inn as we traveled home because of its location and positive reviews. We were not disappointed. Our Friday night stay was quiet even though the local football stadium a couple of blocks away had a game. Marie and Mike do a great job hosting and the large home, a classic mansion, was clean and inviting. Breakfast was served in the dining room set with individual tables so you could choose the amount of interaction with the other guests. Westby is a Norwegian town with Ole and Lena’s Restaurant and two large Norwegian oriented gift shops a block from the inn. My wife found the home to be the nicest of all that we have visited over the years.
4.4 on September 07, 2013
The owners of this B & B have thought of everything to make your stay relaxing, enjoyable and wanting to come back. The room we had was everything we needed and more from the sitting areas, the cookies and coffee down the hall from our room for the evening and morning wake up. The breakfast was a gourmet delight. The B & B incorporates using local food products in the area to help the community. It is worth the trip and experience this lovely B&B with wonderful host & hostess. Jeanine W New Lenox,IL 9/8/2013

This couple have done an outstanding job of creating a very nice place to stay. Everything was clean and nicely decorated. The bed was exceptionally comfortable. The food was great. The hosts were pleasant, friendly and welcoming. The area is beautiful. Appreciated the little gift shop, the reading material, the extra little touches in the room to make our stay delightful.
5 on August 07, 2013
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at the Inn. We spent our wedding night there as well. We both remembered the fantastic breakfast and service at Westby House. We hoped we had not exagerated its greatness in our minds. We had not Marie's breakfast certainly elevated the most important meal of the day. So worth it.
4.6 on August 06, 2013
The Victorianne Room was spectacular. The bed was so comfy and you could tell very clean. The Jacuzzi was spectacular for two. Our only regrets were that we could not have stayed longer. Mike and Marie were so kind. First time at a B&B.. Will definitely do it again. Website was awesome. User Friendly.

The pride of ownership surely prevailed at our stay at the Westby House Inn. Marie and Mike were most welcoming hosts showing interest in our stay, accomodating our requests for travel information and making sure we comfortable. The front porch and patio area were enchanting and provided a very plesant place to relax and enjoy the outdoors. The careful attention to details was truely evident with the beautiful antiques throughout the rooms, wine glasses/refridgerators, the cookies and refreshments provided each evening. We had a wonderful experience and enjoyed our time at the Inn.

We had a very nice stay at the Westby House Inn. We made last minute plans for a short trip and the room we stayed in at the Westby House Inn was very clean, quiet, and comfortable. Our stay there allowed us to have a relaxing weekend and we got to explore the countryside the following day after a restfull night. Great service and a good value too. Thanks!

This is a very beautifully restored 19th century family mansion where you receive a five star service. This part of Wisconsin is really lovely and we had a wonderful time just driving through the country roads where you feel you have travelled back in time. Wes and Carol (from England)

As a business traveler, it isn't always easy to find a place that is comfortable and provides the necessary services to make your trip a success. Westby House Inn does just that! From schedule accommodations to wireless to local recommendations, the Westby House Inn is just as perfect for the business traveler as it is for a couple looking for a quiet, romantic weekend.
5 on June 10, 2013
A wonderful house, the hosts were responsive to all our needs, and went out of their way to even surprise us with a couple of extras. What seemed like an out of the way B&B in the middle of nowhere, couldn't have been better. We would go out of our way to stay there again.
5 on June 06, 2013
I couldn't have picked a worse weekend to try to find a hotel in LaCross for my visit to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe! The Wisconsin State Track Meet was being held and there were no rooms available. ...Except at the Westby House Inn. Little did I realize how fortunate I really was. As I walked through the door of the Westby House Inn, I immediately felt at home with Marie's gracious welcome. The house brings you back in time with the Victorian design and Marie's impeccable decorating. I stayed in the Garden Room. It was small and cozy, and had all the amenities one could hope for including a cozy arm chair for reading and a very comfortable queen size bed. In addition were the adorable touches that made the Garden Room so special. Breakfast was gourmet and served with a personal touch and with attention to detail. I never felt so at home! I wish I could have stayed longer. Thank you, Marie and Mike. Joanne K.
4.6 on June 06, 2013
The home was one of the loveliest we have stayed at. It is in wonderful condition and the decor exceptional. We also enjoyed the wonderful breakfasts and peacefulness of our stay. The B&B is close to LaCrosse, which is a lovely city and the drive there and back was beautiful.
5 on June 04, 2013
Never stayed in a B&B before. This experience was marvelous. Stayed in another since and it was not even close to the Westby in any category.
4.6 on May 29, 2013
Absolutely no dust anywhere to be found in this spectacular B&B! We enjoyed all the character of it's history as well as some of the new elements like the whirlpool too! They even gave us a FREE upgrade because we were the only one's here during the week! So we got to experience two different types of rooms and love them both! Hospitality was great and the neighboring area was just like being in the rolling hills of norway! Loved it here and it was relatively inexpensive too!
4.8 on May 15, 2013
We've been there several times before and the inn keepers are wonderful, always recall who we are. Plus the area has great fly fishing!

Stayed at the Westby House while in the area visiting family. I had a very pleasant and relaxing stay. It's a beautiful old house. Very clean and the owner could not have been nicer. Delicious breakfast too. I will definitely stay there again while in the area.

The stay at Westby Houe Inn & Restaurant was a very enjoyable experience. It is so charming. We are looking forward to staying with you again when we plan a trip to that area; we will certainly let you know.

Nice place and nicer people. It was an enjoyable experience

My husband and I stayed at The Westby House and had a lovely time. Mike and Marie were attentive, gracious hosts. We stayed in the Garden Room and found it to be very comfortable and cozy. I appreciated little touches like toiletries and a hair dryer in the room. Breakfast was to die for! The scones and poppyseed pancakes were our favorites. I would definitely recommend The Wesby House and hope to come back soon!

I had to attend a conference in Lacrosse and every room in the area was taken; just before I reserved a room on Kayak for a terrible looking hotel in Onalaska, my colleague suggested that I look at Bed and Breakfasts. The Westby Inn is just a 30 min drive to Lacrosse and thankfully they had rooms available. The owner of the house was extremely accomondating and a fantastic cook!! The rooms were very comfortable, each with it's own bathroom, fireplace and wifi! I am so happy my colleague suggested B&Bs, I really enjoyed my stay! Great Supper Club down the road!!! Thank you!
5 on April 16, 2013
Classy, elegant and comfortable. Hosts Marie and Mike clearly understand the importance of customer service and attention to detail as every aspect of our stay was excellent. We stayed in the Tower Room suite and didn't want to leave. The breakfast was fabulous and we loved the fact that we had a private table for dining. We relished not having to share a table and make polite conversation early in the morning with strangers. This is an outstanding B&B. We highly recommend staying here.
4.8 on April 16, 2013
A lovely stay. Would definitely stay here again.
4.8 on April 14, 2013
It was a nice relaxing get away. Charming small town with unique shops. The Victorianne Suite was romantic with the fire place flickering, soothing bubble bath, and wine made for a perfect night. Cant wait to return to the Westby House Inn.
5 on March 20, 2013
We stayed in the Tower room, which was a two room suite. Because this was a winter get away we spent a considerable amount of time in the rooms reading etc. The rooms were very sunny and conducive to lingering. They were nicely decorated and spacious. Breakfast was excellent both mornings we ate there. We enjoyed driving through the countryside observing the Amish countryside. Westby is close to Lacross (26 miles) which provided another city to explore. All in all we had a wonderful three day stay and would recommend the Westby House to anyone.

Although ny stay was short, I enjoyed the Westby Inn. The room was very comfortable, charming, and the hosts took great care of me.

Mike and Marie are gracious hosts of this marvelous victorian home away from home. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. The rooms are clean and well equipped. The food is wonderful. Situated inside a farming community, peace and quiet are abundant while not too far away from activities and sights of neighboring towns and the Mississippi River.

We've been to the Westby House several times over the years and ALWAYS find it OUTSTANDING! It is consistently so.
4.4 on December 20, 2012
We have stayed at the Westby House numerous times - initially while visiting our son at UWL, then while "just passing through", and in the future just because. Marie and Mike have always made us feel like we are home-away-from-home and always welcome. Marie is a genius in the kitchen with a constant variety of delicious breakfasts featuring fruits, pastries, and a hearty main dish - almost always including cheese or whipped cream from the local dairy. Mike and Marie have recommendations for things to do or see in the area, and they haven't failed us yet. The Westby House is on our list of best places to stay anytime we're in the La Crosse area for whatever reason and in any season.
4.6 on November 01, 2012
I visited the Westby House Inn for the first time with a group of friends for a retreat. It was a wonderful weekend of laughs, great food, fun times, and deep discussion. Thank you to the hostess/owners of this fine establishment!
5 on October 17, 2012
The Westby B&B is the unique blending of a tastefully decorated grand historic home, lovingly restored and maintained, with the comforting kindness of hosts who treat you like family and nourish you with delectable meals. It's a must-stay whether you happen to be in the beautiful southwest Wisconsin region, or make it a destination.
5 on October 16, 2012
This was a first time visit for my husband and I, and we were VERY impressed. We stayed in the Rose Room, and it was perfect for us. (Always love to see real glass wine glasses!!) The breakfast was gourmet and delectable! :-) We liked the choice of time to eat and what to eat, besides the possibility of coffee BEFORE breakfast. Nice to see lovely white table cloths and sparkling glasses/dinnerware on each table. My husband, who is more quiet and reserved than I, also appreciated the opportunity to eat more privately than at a long table with many strangers. Mike and Marie were excellent hosts, very personable, welcoming, and accommodating. :-) I also enjoyed the gift shop, with several quality items, some locally made. We will definitely be back and will tell our friends of this great value and location! Thanks, Mike and Marie, for all you've done to make this a special bed and breakfast! A side note: I had just returned the night before from a 10-day New England trip, where I stayed in three different B 'n B's, and yours, was THE best! :-)

Staying at Westby House has been an outstanding experience on each of our 4 visits. Marie and Mike make you feel very comfortable and special.
4.6 on October 09, 2012
The Westby House is great. We traveled to Viroqua for dinner and found a wonderful restaurant serving locally grown food that was also wonderful. Everything about this B&B was fine. The room met our expectations which is a positive. The town itself does not offer much in the way of entertainment.
5 on October 08, 2012
The room was beautiful and relaxing. The food was yummy and the hostess was friendly and helpful. I recommend this lovely B&B to everyone.
5 on October 08, 2012
Our stay in this comfortable B & B was the best ever. Great room, personalized check in, and as good a breakfast as we have ever had. My wife had just discovered that she was glucose intolerant. We were served 2 different breakfasts to facilitate that. Wonderful experience!!!

This was our second stay at the Westby House, and we'll be back again. We love the charm, cleanliness, and fantastic breakfast in this beautifully restored home. Mike and Marie are gracious and welcoming hosts, making our stay one to remember.
5 on September 19, 2012
We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Wesby House Inn. The food was absolutely delicious and our hosts, Mike and Marie were very gracious. We stayed in the Garden Room and it was all that it was advertised to be. We will definately be staying here again when we are in the area.
4.8 on September 17, 2012
We had a very relaxing time. Our room was gorgeous with everything we could possibly want, even some delicious cookies waiting for us. :)
5 on September 14, 2012
I stay at the Westby House two - three nights a week and until staying there, have never been a guest at a B&B. I always thought it would feel like I was intruding on someone's space. Mike and Marie are such gracious hosts! When I go to The Westby House, it's just like going home. I've had the pleasure of sleeping in The Rose Room as well as the Atrium. As I am not a coffee drinker, Marie always has a cold Mountain Dew in the fridge for me and the home made cookies and pastries are unbelievable! Top notch accomodations and service!!!
5 on September 11, 2012
The Westby House is warm and friendly. Marie and Mike are great and food was fantastic.

We enjoyed our stay in the Victorianne Suite, The Jacuzzi, the stars on the ceiling, the fluffy bed... all so nice! Especially appreciated the option of having a continental breakfast in our suite (and so delicious too!)

It was relaxing and very enjoyable because of the friendly, helpful and knowledgeable people who answered our questions, and for the super breakfast. It was a grand way to celebrate our 50th wedding Anniversary.
5 on September 09, 2012
The Westby House is a very welcoming destination, outstanding appointments through out the home and guest house. the hosts Marie and Mike go out of their way to see to your needs. Guys traveling alone will love the Guest House Rooms conversely the Ladies will lean towards the finery in the Westby House proper when selecting a room. Take it from me whose travels to Westby have spanned the better part of the last 25 years, the Westby House has everything else beat hands down. The Old Towne Inn Supper Club is the best place for a fine evening meal. Tell Marie and Mike and Suzie at the Supper Club GhostRider sent ya!

Warm welcome, everything we needed available, comfortable room setting and great looking surroundings. We were very well cared for.

This was a delightful part of our trip to SW Wisconsin. We loved the Westby House, admired Marie for all her skills as an innkeeper, and felt right at home, even though it was our first trip to the area and our first time staying at Westby House. We would definitely return again.
5 on August 08, 2012
We really enjoyed everything about our comfortable stay at the Westby House! We will return and recommend to others!

The Westby House is everything that we had hoped it would be. Walk through the doors and you step back 100 years in time to an elegant Victorian residence that has every modern convenience incorporated into it. New tile bathrooms, wi-fi and flat screen TVs are surrounded by Victorian lace curtains, wood fireplaces and grandmas wallpaper to create a sense of slipping back to the future. We happened to stay in the Tower Room and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet and elegant getaway. You will not be disappointed.

The room we had at the Westby House was extremely clean and very friendly and relaxing. We would recommend this bed and breakfast for total relaxation.

The House itself is so charming - and decorated in that time period. It is lovely and quiet and peaceful. Mike and Marie were delightful hosts! We enjoyed out stay a great deal. The breakfasts were marvelous and delicious! If and when we are in the beautiful area of Wisconsin - we surely would come again! Thank you for the lovely time! Martha & Dale Banks

It is our first time at staying at a B&B and we could not be happier. The room is almost as good as the hospitality, service and food. If I would get 50 cents for eyery body I will tell about the Westby we could pay for the room for a month. Great Place!!!!!

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Westby House Inn - in The Atrium in the Guest House, for 9 nights. We had a family reunion to attend during the week of July 4th and early in April decided we'd like to try the Westby House because we had heard great things about it. So we made reservations. The experience went far beyond our best expectations. Mike & Marie are the perfect host & hostess and made us feel welcome and "at home" every single day. We didn't want to leave! The Atrium has 3 rooms: the comfortable bedroom, cozy sitting room, and lovely bathroom. All rooms were spotlessly clean. Of course we arrived during one of the hottest heatwaves in Wisconsin( with temps during the day in the 3 digits!), but the air conditioner worked fantastic and we were also given a tower fan to help push the cool air around. We also had use of the fully equipped kitchen (also a part of The Atrium), for those days we just wanted to stay inside where it was cool, to have lunch. The breakfasts Marie prepared each morning in the main house, were top notch and delicious. We plan on staying at this fantastic B&B for our future trips to Westby!
5 on July 12, 2012
I was returning to my hometown of Westby, Wisconsin for a family reunion in early July. I stayed in the Tower Suite a the Westby House Inn for 4 nights, and I could not be happier with the accommodations. From the time I checked in, I felt pampered. The service was personalized, the suite was immaculate, and the food was beyond compare!! Truly an experience that exceeded all expectations. I will definitely stay at the Westby House Inn again!

We enjoyed a restful, relaxing night with Mike and Marie at the Westby House Inn. The hospitality was excellent and the breakfast delicious. The tips and suggestions for things to do and see were very helpful.

Great accommodations. The Pine Room where we stayed was decorated with a great fly fishing theme. We immediately felt at home when we arrived. Great small town charm. Room was very clean and modern. The loft bedroom and spiral staircase added a special and unique touch to the room. The breakfast was excellent. We highly recommend this B & B and look forward to future visits.

A wonderful charming establishment in a beautiful part of the country. If you are in the area I highly recommend staying at the Westby House. The staff was nice and helpful with all aspects of my stay.

Westby House Inn is gorgeous. with antique furniture throughout that reflects the Victorian era of the Inn. We were very comfortable in our room and enjoyed the breakfasts and common areas as well. We were greeted warmly and advised by Marie on activities and places to dine. We felt pampered. It was a wonderful place for a get-away. We loved our stay!
5 on June 18, 2012
My husband and I spent one night in the Tower room. It was a lovely 2 room suite, with a sofa, 2 chairs, and a mini fridge. Beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. The breakfast was delicious. Would definitely stay there again.

I especially enjoyed the fine breakfasts in the beautiful Victorian dining room.

We are so happy that we chose the Westby House to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The room was extremely comfortable, the breakfasts were beyond our expectations, and the attention to all of the little details made for a wonderful stay. It is obvious that the hosts love their jobs and make their guests' comfort a priority. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.
4.6 on June 05, 2012
Thanks so much for your hospitality. We have stayed at other WI B&Bs. Yours was on par with much more expensive locations with better service and especially the food:)
4.8 on June 02, 2012
Mike and Marie are great hosts, very friendly, and location is spacious with plenty of privacy. We really enjoyed our stay!
4.6 on June 01, 2012
I had the Scandia room, which comes with its own private entrance in a building adjacent to the main house. That made coming and going on my own extremely easy. They have a wide variety of accommodations, so look at the web site to get a feel for what's available. The owners are VERY dedicated to pleasing their guests.
4.4 on May 29, 2012
Room was great. No noise, very private. Breakfast was fantastic. Stayed 3 days, had 3 unique breakfast meals. Host was very accommodating and friendly.
5 on May 19, 2012
This is a place to go when you need a little time away. This was a first experience for us and I would stay in this B&B again. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent! We enjoyed relaxing on the porch and it is right in town so you can walk to the different stores. Thanks again.
4.8 on May 13, 2012
It was our first visit, and it was a great suprise because Westby is such a small town. We were really lucky to get in due to a last minute business cancellation. The innkeeper was warm and friendly. We loved the little extras, movies, books, games, snacks and early morning coffee. A very satisfying breakfast, and a really nice gift shop.
4.6 on May 09, 2012
We have stayed in this B&B before, so we knew what to expect. It seems, however, that every time we stay, something new is added--the little extras that make us feel as though the owners put a lot of thought and expense into making our stay more enjoyable. The rooms are always exceedingly clean and beautifully arranged. Our hostess is always trying new recipes and adding her own special touch to them. They enjoy using locally made products and let us know about them. On this last stay, we were attending a conference just outside Westby, so we were glad to have another excuse to stay there. We always feel so welcome and truly enjoy "Ole & Lena" who make us feel like family. We would rate this one our favorite B&B!

What a delightful place to stay! We loved it. Had a chance to explore the area and hear live music at a near by restaurant. Charming!

I've been coming to the Westby House for over 10 years, and it never disappoints. There is an eclectic mix of rooms and accommodations - something for everyone, including the fisherman like me. Mike and Marie are excellent hosts, and the meals (not available all the time) are outstanding; not overdone, but elegant and tasty.
5 on April 23, 2012
Westby Inn is a must-stay. Mike & Marie were perfect hosts. It was very relaxing and enjoyable. They thought of every little detail!

I felt so special during my stay at the Westby House Inn. Mike and Marie were so welcoming and accomodating. From the beautiful, comfortable linens to the delicious and well presented breakfasts, the entire experience made me feel like royalty. Thanks for the rest and relaxtion treat. It was exceptional!

My future wife and I stayed at The Westby House for the second time this past weekend, March 24 and 25. As always, Mike and Marie could not have been more cordial and welcoming. Our room was cozy and spotless, and as important, quiet. We have stayed at several B&Bs the past few years and none can compare with the wonderful breakfasts served by Marie. Marie enjoys developing new dishes and her guests get to enjoy the results. If you have not stayed at The Westby House, do yourself a favor, book a room, and enjoy their fine hospitality.

What a great place to stay! An atmosphere of warmth and coziness that traditional hotels simply can't match. The owner was willing to provide advice as to favorite spots and sites in the area. Unique and personalized travel experience. Historic and decorated very uniquely. Very nice breakfast. Marie was so very nice and helpful. We lost are cell phone and with her help it was found. Thank you for the best stay ever. I will be back and will share this place with others.

We were made to feel at home the minute we entered this beautiful home. The food was delicious, the bed was comfortable and everything was spotlessly clean. It was a most enjoyable experience and we will most certainly return.

I loved this B&B in that the furnishing were beautifully ornate with candals, antiques, huge rooms, proceline treasures everywhere you look. The bed had a down mattress cover! It was very comfortable. The owners were very friendly and welcoming.

Before the birth of our fourth son, we had the opportunity to get away for a night and enjoy some quiet time. The Westby House was the perfect place for us. It was our first experience of a B & B, and we happened to be surprised by a generous upgrade when we arrived. Very accomodating hosts, beautiful rooms and special touches, and a delicious breakfast that we didn't have to prepare! It was just what we needed. We hope to be able to return again someday, provided that we can get someone to watch all our little boys at home!
3.4 on October 23, 2011
We stayed in the Garden Room. Very lovely, although a bit overdone in the decor, but that is the Victorian way. Bed was super comfortable. Breakfast was delicious. Mike & Marie were very nice hosts. I would stay there again if in the area.

Came up here to visit family and recover from a broken wrist. The room was extremely comfortable and peaceful, breakfasts were wonderful and felt so relaxed. Can't wait to return.

We had a beautiful weekend stay at the Westby House complete with a.maz.ing gormet breakfasts, thoughtful room details, warm hospitality and even a picnic lunch that we ate while out on a lovely canoe trip on the Kickapoo River. We stayed in the Library Room but had the opportunity to peer into the open doors of the unoccupied rooms so we could really get a feel for the Inn in totality and not just our tiny corner of paradise. With comfortable drives to Amish country, the Vernon Hills Winery, and the canoe launches of Ontario, WI, the Westby House Inn is a fantastic getaway in any season. Fully recommended.
4.8 on October 10, 2011
We stayed one night at this inn as a 'staycation' away from our kids. They have a good assortment of rooms with different rate options, from the basic to the ornate. The house was clean and warm. The breakfast was very nice; some unique menu items without getting too wierd. The owners were friendly and flexible in terms booking, payment and fielding questions about the local area. Overall, a well-run B&B.
4.8 on October 10, 2011
For our wedding anniversary my husband and I had a weekend getaway planned and at the last minute we had to cancel our trip due to storm damage and power outage where we were to go. We then looked at country towns north and west of us and found Westby House Inn. We were pleasantly surprised at finding a room at a good price at the last minute. The hosts were wonderful, suite was a mini home from home, very quiet and overall a very pleasant stay. We will certainly go back there again.
5 on October 05, 2011
When Marie greets you at the front door and you walk in to Westby House you know you are somewhere special. You will be pampered your entire stay. The rooms are spotless. The king size bed we slept in was so comfortable, we didn't want to get out of it in the morning. Morning breakfast is something to get excited about. It is the most delicious food you will ever taste. I would highly recommend a weekend ay The Westby House.

This was only the 2nd time we've stayed at a B&B, and the experience will surely encourage us to not only return to this property, but to try B&Bs in other areas as well. Marie and Mike make you feel welcome, the room had great ammenities, and the meals were excellent.

Traveling in Southwestern WI - Westby House is the place to stay. Beautifully decorated rooms with all required hospitality amenities and more. Innkeepers Mike and Marie are first class hosts with genuine care and concern for your comfort. Oh, and did I mention breakfast was DELICIOUS!
4.8 on September 26, 2011
We had a very, very nice time during our stay at the Westby House Inn. The Inn and the separate guest house are both scrupulously clean and nicely decorated. The amenties include things no hotel would give you, or would charge you for dearly, including a full size coffee maker with REAL coffee, complimentary soda and water, and an in-room refrigerator and microwave. Although there are no upscale restaurants within walking distance, there's a lovely coffee house right next door, and the bar across the street serves excellent food (try the Rueben Pizza!) and drinks. The Westby Inn breakfast was delicious and just right. We definitely plan to return!
5 on September 25, 2011
We just spent 2 nights at the Westby Inn and we could not be happier. The rooms were very clean and decorated beautifullly. It was nice to have coffee right outside your bedroom door before breakfast. Marie and Mike were very hospitable and helpful with recommendations of where to eat. My only minor complaint is that I would have liked a little more seating in the "living room" around the fireplace so we could enjoy the beauty of the first floor. I would recommend the Westby Inn to everyone. It is a great value. We also really enjoyed learning about the history of the house from Mike. Thank you

B&B was easy to find with easy parking. Marie was more than friendly and polite and showed us to our very nice, clean room. Our room was well appointed with a full kitchen, sitting room, front porch, big bathroom with whirlpool and a cozy bed with glow in the dark stars on the ceiling... very cool! breakfast was clearly home made and was superb. We are looking forward to going back when we get the chance.

We stayed in the Pinewood Loft...it was much bigger than the pictures make it out to be. The welcome when we first pulled in was so comforting after a 8 hour journey. Mike was all smiles and Marie went out of her way to give us a tour of the house as well as telling us where to go and where not to go. We have stayed in numerous hotels, motels, resorts and in many different countries...but we can honestly say that the service and the time spent at the Westby house far surpassed anything we have experienced. Plans for a return are already in the works! The bedding arrangement is very comforting. The pillows, sheets, mattress are all reminiscent of "home." The downstairs living area is spacious enough to lay out maps, clothes, bags, junk etc without seeming crowded. The kitchen area has everything a couple on the go can possibly use. The bathroom is perfect, clean and not intimidating like many hotel bathrooms. All in all, a trip to the Westby House is a trip to an ideal home, with two loving caring 'parents', clean rooms, ample space, wonderful food and an experience that makes you feel 'homesick' when you leave!
4.8 on August 16, 2011
My wife and I stayed here for 1 night this past week on our way from Chicago to Minneapolis. It was just great. The owners are wonderfully welcoming, and breakfast was top notch. The rooms are a little kitschy, which is pretty cool and adds to the charm of this beautiful property. When you find yourself in SW Wisconsin, be sure to give this place a look...you'll be glad you did.
5 on August 14, 2011
We have stayed at a few different bed & breakfasts around he state of Wisconsin, and Westby House is at the top of our list. The room was very well decorated, and had everything that you might need. The breakfast in the morning was one of the best parts of the day. We were anxious to see what different types of food Mike & Marie came up with. The 2 days we stayed there for our anniversary were excellent. Thanks for everything Mike & Marie, Adam & Karen

We stopped at Westby House on our way to MN to meet some friends for biking. We were pleasantly surprised with the friendly service, clean rooms and good food. Mike & Marie are wonderful hosts! We will stay there again the next time we are in the area.

Mike & Marie were wonderful hosts, Our experience began w/ an upgraded room, (so beautiful, I think I'm going to redecorate my bedroom) then for our Canoe trip on Saturday mike made us these wonderful sandwiches to go. We would definitely stay again. I was just surprised that the house was located right in town, but did not take away from the charmingness.

Westby House and Marie were so great! I stayed in the Guest Cottage and was so pleased with the cozy, spotless, and well thought out design of the place. And I had Wi-Fi on the patio of the main house. And Marie helped with every question or request. I hope to bring my husband back with me next time.
4.6 on July 13, 2011
We enjoyed a two night stay at Westby House. Lovely room, beautiful inn, gracious hospitality, many amenities. Marie is a culinary artist so you will experience an exceptional breakfast in both presentation and taste. While the inn is located "in town" the surrounding area is charming and a wonderful environment if you like to wander and explore quaint towns, little shops, and beautiful countryside. Don't miss the overlook point at Wildcat Mountain Sate Park nearby. Ontario.

Wonderful Victorian home furnished with antiques, collectibles, and historic photographs of the original owner's family and friends.

Only caveat: restaurants in Westby close very early, even on Saturdays.

We were in La Crosse, WI for a family wedding and wanted to stay at a local B&B. Westby is a quick & easy drive to La Crosse, and is a fun little town with great shops and restaurants. As a finicky traveler, the Westby House Inn exceeded my expectations with its comfortable rooms, decor, cleanliness, beautiful landscaping and dining. Mike & Marie were the perfect friendly hosts, going out of their way to accommodate our schedules and particular needs. I am looking forward to my next visit to Westby and the Westby House Inn.

Having grown up in Westby, my husband often said we should stay at the Westby House when we make our many trips back home for family gatherings. We are both happy to say that while it took a long time for that first stay, it was worth waiting for. EVERYTHING was perfect. The Innkeepers Mike & Marie made every effort to ensure we had a memorable experience and we did! Love, Love, Loved the breakfast. Thank you again for a great time!

We just stayed with Mike and Marie at the Westby House Inn in Westby, WI, and found it warm, welcoming, and an excellent value. The hosts provide lots of thoughtful touches and think of all the details to make your stay pleasurable. The food at breakfast was really great, too. If you are looking for a place within striking distance of Prairie du Chien, this B&B is definitely worth the short and scenic drive to Westby, and beats Prairie du Chien B&B rates by a long shot. We will definitely tell others!
5 on March 17, 2011
A warm welcome from Marie told us we had once again chosen the correct B & B. to visit. The charm and decor throughout the Westby House brings back wonderful memories we enjoyed growing up as we visited our grandmother's homes. The Rose Room gave us a relaxing, calm and quiet evening. Breakfast was especially delectable and very hearty and also more enjoyable as Marie visited with us as though we were "good friends".

This was the first time my husband and I have stayed at the Westby House Inn. We were very happy with our stay. We enjoyed the remote location and quietness of the house and town. We spent much time visiting the Westby House website prior to making our reservation and found it (the website) very accurate, informative and current! The rooms were just as we expected them. Marie was most helpful. Upon our arrival, we inquired about dining out for dinner and she not only gave us suggestions but offered to call and make reservations for us. The house was impecably clean and the food MOST delicious! I would highly recommend this B&B! We enjoyed being able to sit at our own private table for breakfast as in the past when visiting a couple of other B&Bs, the dining area had 1 large table for all to sit at and we felt that it wasn't a very comfortable situation.

I treated my companion to weekend at The Westby House. It was part of her birthday celebration. As others have noted, Mike and Marie could not have been more welcoming and codial. We stayed in the Tower Suite, a spacious, sunny, and absolutely spotless room. Of all the rooms we viewed, the was our favorite. Our breakfast the first morning was fantastic. My significant other is a wonderful cook and she raved about our tasty breakfast. Breakfast the morning of our second day was even better. Marie is truly a wonderful cook and hostess. The Westby House is a great base to use when one wishes to explore both the Mississippi and Kickapoo Valleys, some of the finest scenery in Wisconsin. If you are not familiar with the area, Mike and Marie can answer all your questions. After our stay, we both highly recommend The Westby House

My husband and I celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary at The Westby House. We stayed in the Victorianne Suite, which was perfect for a romantic getaway. It had everything we needed and more, and it was the cleanest room I have ever stayed in. Marie was friendly and welcoming at check-in, and her breakfast was delicious the next morning. We were able to take a tour of the open rooms and agreed that we would love to return every year and try a different room. They were all beautiful, spacious and clean. A great place to stay!

We have been visiting in the Westby area for many years,traveling from quite a distance. Because we usually stay in the area for 5-6 days, we wanted something different, more of an 'at home' atmosphere. We were not disappointed! Mike and Marie treated us like family from the moment we arrived until we left. Our room was most comfortable. The breakfasts were awesome each morning! In the future, this will definitely be our 'home away from home.'
4.4 on November 29, 2010
Marie met us at the door and was the epitome of welcoming. The room was fantastic. We were in a smaller room but it was still plenty large with a couch, very large closet and large comfortable bed. The breakfast was excellent and the dining room lovely. The house itself is HUGE and in beautiful shape.

This is my third stay at the Westby House Inn, and what a delight! Marie and Mike are such warm and friendly hosts who always treat you like family! Their home is absolutely beautiful, filled with antiques and family treasures. Each of their comfortable, homey rooms is tastefully decorated in a theme paying great attention to detail. The breakfast each morning is delicious! Always made from scratch, expertly prepared and beautifully presented! In short, I can't say enough about Mike and Marie's Westby House Inn! This is undoubtedly one of the best bed and breakfasts in the country! --- Cari from West Bend, WI

We have been to the Westby House twice and will be back again for sure. The atmosphere is peaceful and very romantic !!!

Recommended by friends, we really enjoyed our first-time one overnight at the Westby House Inn. We rehearsed in the front room right after check-in for a gig in Veroqua. Returned late and came back for wine and warmth, good nights sleep, exceptional Breakfast.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Westby House. It was the perfect place for us to be and offered us the reclusive setting in which to reconnect while my husband was home on leave from his deployment. Mike and Marie did not overlook the details when it came to preparing the suite that we had reserved. Nor did Marie hold back in preparing a delicious gourmet breakfast for just my husband and me.
4.8 on November 18, 2010
We love the Westby House and have turned it into an annual get-away weekend! Mike and Marie have thought of every detail for the rooms. Nothing that you may need will be overlooked. They are also familiar with local activities and dining and always have great suggestions for day trips or dinners out. We love the guest house with the whirlpool tubs, but have heard the rooms in the main house are beautiful too. Would recommend the Westby House to anyone looking for a great B&B. PS - Breakfasts are delicious, often with items from the local creamery!
5 on November 13, 2010
My husband and I had such a wonderful experience. The Inkeepers Maria and Mike made you feel like one of the family right from the start and I know we will always be friends across the miles. We are from New Hampshire and I flew up to be with my husband before he deployed. The Town of Westby was so gracious to us and we felt right at home. The food? Wow! The atmosphere, double Wow! the fellowship? Couldn't ask for better! If we are ever back in WI you can be sure we will go out of our way to stop by and say hi or even better stay there again!

Our friends gave us a 40th Anniversary gift getaway to the Westby House. It was outstanding! We loved the Victorian home, with it's beautiful antiques & very comfortable 4 poster bed. The area is very scenic, and rich in Norwegian history. The breakfasts were truly remarkable, and fresh baked cookies were always available. Everyone was so friendly, with helpful suggestions on a wide variety of opportunities to spend our time. We can hardly wait to go back. Barb & Dave

When I arrived, it was a Friday evening and just before 6:00 PM. My daughter would be joining me, but was running late and would not arrive until around 8:00 PM. I was greeted, made comfortable and enjoyed a wonderful chat while we waited for my daughter. Because there was construction on the road, my daughter was taking longer than she had anticipated, so they made up a cheese and fruit tray for when she arrived. I was also given directions and the name of a restaurant that would be open and still serving dinner. The weather was lovey for October and I went outside to sit on the veranda. How wonderful it was to hear the music and cheers from the high school game just a block away. This was my second experience with the Westby House and I can't thank them enough for their hospitality. If you are in the area, you must give them a visit, they even serve lunch during the week.

My best friend and I decided to do an overnight road trip, so we stayed at the Westby House Inn. It's nestled in a quaint American Norwegian village with lots of unique shops and restaraunts. We stayed in the "Victorian" suite, which was beautifully decorated, and had a gas fireplace and two person jacuzzi. Our hostess had our room warm and inviting for us with the fireplace lit and a few lights on when we came in. We had a nice tv with cable channels and video's to use, and Magazines to read. The bed was very comfy, and when we turned off the lights, the stars came out on the ceiling which was fun to look at. Our breakfast was very good, and Marie and Mike were very accomodating. My coffee cup was always full. They were friendly and welcoming. I would definitely go there again.

We stayed for one night in October on a weekend. We liked the service and found it to be cozy in the Scandiva Room. It had a rustic feel to it. The continental breakfast was good. The room was clean and was fair. We would definatley book a stay there again.
5 on October 18, 2010
My husband surprised me with a 2-night stay at the Westby House for our 5 year wedding anniversary. This was the PERFECT destination. Not only is the house impeccable, but the rooms were large, clean, and VERY comfortable. So many little details! Marie and Mike are amazing hosts... so accommodating and helpful. And the breakfasts! Oh, the breakfasts! I felt like a queen. Marie's cooking is out of this world and the presentation was spot on. We enjoyed every second of our stay. We are telling everyone about it and will surely be back again very soon. Thank you Marie and Mike, for making our anniversary such a memorable one!
3.2 on October 16, 2010
Westby room was spacious and lovely. Hosts were wonderful and the breakfast tasty and filling. Guests are requested to give a time of arrival, and a time that we would get down to the dining room for breakfast the next day. Because we were on vacation and trying to relax, we felt a bit under pressure with those requirements. Beautiful house and we would return given the chance.
4.8 on October 14, 2010
The Westby House was one of best B&B`s we have stayed in. The breakfast was excellent and so was the hospitality. On our list for future stays. Greg & Pat Meier
5 on October 14, 2010
We stayed in a different room from the ones we've stayed in so far. We've probably stayed at Westby House around seven times. The room this time was accommodating and beautiful as have been all of the others. Breakfast is always elegant and delicious. Usually there's a new interesting taste included, so Marie is always developing the menu. Another thing that people don't always think about is the extent of the interaction between owners and patrons (we've stayed in many different B&B's). At Westby House, this exchange is always just right, helpful and friendly.

We stayed one night and enjoyed the stay very much. We liked the separate entrance to what felt like our own cottage.

Every year my family picks a Wisconsin based Bed & Breakfast for a little retreat. Unfortunately, we were all very disappointed in our two night experience at the Westby. The beds were very uncomfortable, but far worse were the flat 3” pillows. We did ask for fluffy pillows the next day as we had a terrible time sleeping and we were directed to the extra pillows in our dresser. Well, the extra pillows were exactly the same! My parents had the same flat pillows in there room and no extras to be found. Small details like no tissues in the tissue box and no robes in the room the first night added to the disappointment. Breakfast the first morning was ok. It was a cornflake French toast with sausage. The coffee was hot the first cut but on cup two it was luke warm each morning. We requested to have a full breakfast again on day two but asked if we could have some scrambled eggs on the side. Well, we ended up getting scrambled eggs, two orders brown and rubbery, with toast that was overdone and a small piece of thin ham that was also over cooked and dry. As far as the house goes, it was a very pretty Victorian and everything seemed clean and organized. One thing that was missing was a common area inside the home to visit or sit besides your room. They used all the space on the main level for their restaurant. As far as our hosts were concerned they were rarely around and the only time we saw Marie was when she made breakfast. Mike seemed friendly but we only saw him once upon check in. Marie was not very friendly and when we left and gave her a check for payment she didn’t even say thank you or hope you enjoyed your stay or anything. The reason we enjoy staying at Bed & Breakfasts is to visit with the owners and hear about the fun and interesting things in their town and maybe visit with other guests. We can’t understand the good reviews on Trip Advisor. Perhaps these people have not stayed in B&B’s previously or they want a more hotel feel.
5 on October 07, 2010
2nd stay for us. Came back because they have a beautiful inn, very well maintained. We had no need to ask for anything because they already thought of everything. Very nice people.
3.6 on October 04, 2010
We stayed in half of a guest house, with our own private entrance and loft bedroom. The opportunity for a Raindrop massage was offered and indulged in, in our "room" shortly after arrival, starting out our stay perfectly. Marie was accommodating to our food preferences. We were able to prepare simple meals in our kitchenette and received delicious muffins and scones for breakfast, to enjoy in the privacy and comfort of our room, during our 2-day stay. We enjoyed a trip to nearby Viroqua, with its Co-op Market and Deli, full of locally grown produce, bulk grains, and hard-to-find vegan selections, and many other wonderful products. We also made a trip out to Vernon Vineyards, where we tasted and purchased some wonderful wine.

Friendly, comfortable, quiet, a delicious breakfast. What more could a weary traveler ask for?!

Our time spent at Westby House Inn was restorative for body and soul. Perfect 51st Wedding Anniversary retreat! The Victorian house beautifully detailed decor was charming plus. So much to take in visually, a real treat for the visual experience. The breakast experience was such a delight! Delicious and we dined in pampered elegance....Thanks so much for everything!
4.6 on September 29, 2010
This B&B has a unique charm to it which is enhanced by the warmth of the host/owners, Marie and Mike. They were delightful hosts! The rooms/inn were exceptionally clean and NO detail of making your room and experience was sparred! THANK YOU for a wonderful time! I would highly recommend this B&B to everyone!
4.4 on September 29, 2010
We were celebrating a special milestone with a group of 6 couples. This was our 25th year spending a fall weekend together. Westby House went above & beyond the call of duty to make our stay very special. I would highly recommend this immaculate B & B to anyone traveling to this beautiful area!

THIS WAS OUR SECOND TIME TO STAY AT THE WESTBY HOUSE AND WE HOPE TO STAY AGAIN SOMETIME FOR MORE THAN ONE NIGHT. GREAT VALUE AND A WONDERFUL BREAKFAST. MIKE AND MARIE ARE ALSO GREAT.

My wife and I went to Westby for a weekend away from the kids.
4.2 on September 17, 2010
This was an incredible stay for the price! We didn't stay in the main house. Instead we stayed in the Westby Guest Lodge right next to the main house. It was like being in our own little cabin in the woods. We really enjoyed having a continental breakfast provided for us in our room. We were able to have breakfast privately and on our own schedule. The room was very well decorated and it smelled wonderfully of pine. Everything we could have needed was provided for us, including videos to watch. We loved our stay and would definitely come back if travel takes us back to the area.
4.4 on September 08, 2010
Our children gave us a gift certificate to stay at Westby House. We chose to spend two nights in the Atrium Suite. The accommodations were beautiful, comfortable and designed with an eye for coziness and charm. We spent our day using the Elroy-Sparta bike trail, driving through the lovely countryside, canoing the Kickapoo River and relaxing in the suite's jacuzzi. Local dining was sparse because many places were closed on Monday but we discovered the Viroqua Food Coop has an excellent deli. For excellent dining try Kate's on State in LaCrosse--a scenic half hour drive away.
4.8 on September 07, 2010
We won this weekend thru a Public Television Auction. And I am so very glad. Maire and Mike are wonderful hosts. The breakfast was delicious. Marie was more than helpful with questions and to make our stay perfect. Lovely house, safe quite community with some of the best bicycling available in the state of Wisconsin. We will be back.

The rooms were so clean and beautifully decorated. We loved staying there and we look forward to staying again sometime.

We loved our room at the Westby House! It was super clean and very beautifully decorated. The food Marie cooked and served was very creative and very, very tasy! We will be coming back, that's for sure!
3.0 on August 28, 2010
we appreciated the period details, the charm of the rooms, and the amenities such as refrigerator, filtered water and coffee available for all guests in the inn. I do wish they used softer toilet paper (petty, I know), but I appreciated the good shower, nice towels and lotions in pump bottles. Also, breakfast was creative but much too sweet for my taste. Owners ask guests to let them know of allergies and special diets, but it did not occur to me to mention this issue. Perhaps there could be a choice of 2 entrees. Otherwise, a very lovely place to which we will return.
4.6 on August 25, 2010
My stay at the Westby House Inn was wonderful. The room was very clean and cozy, the kitchenette was wonderful and the continental breakfast was great. The owners were warm and helpful in providing information. I would definitely stay here again (and making plans to do so).

The Westby House was great. Very clean and relaxing. I wouldnt change a thing. Inn keepers were very nice but gave you complete privacy.
4.6 on August 24, 2010
We were only there for about 14 hours, but what a great stay it was. Marie was on top of everything and anticipated our needs to the fullest. The entire house is spotless! I even felt comfortable sitting on the floor of our room, and that's saying a lot for me! The accomodations were very comfortable, the amenities plentiful, and the breakfast superb. We will definitely recommend The Westby House to our friends.
4.6 on August 24, 2010
We really enjoyed our stay. We only wish we could have stayed longer. We did not eat in the dining area, but had the breakfast provided in our room and it was very good. The little cottage we stayed in was a delight and extremely clean. we both appreciated the clean environment. We know we will be back to stay and will make it a longer visit next time. Thank you!
4.6 on August 23, 2010
Everything was exactly as it appeared on the website. Marie was very flexible in trying to meet our needs and did provide everything we needed without being intrusive.

My husband was on a weekend leave prior to deploying to Afghnaistan for a year. We wanted a quite romantic weekend place to stay. The Westby was perfect. You wont believe the breakfast you will be served. I have never had a breakfast dish anything like what we were served OUTSTANDING. Thank You Mike and Marie

Rooms were luxurious, Mike and Marie are so friendly and helpful. They recommended places to eat and things to see in the area. Everything you could need is provided. Great value for money. Movies and bathrobes provided!

First time at this B&B ...but it won't be the last. If this was a simpler time - it sure felt very luxurious. The Host and Hostess were soooo hospitable and friendly. Breakfast could not have been better. It was an Outstanding Experience. Thank You Westby House!
4.8 on August 18, 2010
We decided to stay at the Westby because we just happen to like B&B's. It is so clean and the accommodations were very nice. It was also extremely quiet. We arrived at 5 pm and were in the mood for some ice cream. Usually the ice cream parlor closes at that time but the B&B owner called them up so we could get our ice cream and they stayed open just for us. What great service! You don't get that in the city. The mattress was great. They had movies we could watch in the room for free and the breakfast provide for us was so good. we are going back in 5 wks. We are actually going out of our way because it is such a great value. Try it out!
4.6 on August 16, 2010
We so enjoyed our overnight get-away. The room was even nicer than the photos on the Internet. The hostess was very welcoming and helpful with details about local bike trails, etc. The room provided every amenity, including a sofa and desk, iPod speakers and DVD player. We highly recommend this peaceful inn.

Marie and Mike were excellent hosts and my wife and I had a wonderful time staying in Westby at the Westby House Inn. This was our first B&B experience so we weren't exactly sure what to expect. But the rooms were very private (each with their own bathroom) and well appointed. The extra little touches are what makes this place. The use of a refrigerator at the end of the main floor was nice for storage, plus coffee in the morning, and pomegranate iced tea all day long. Breakfast was incredible! Interesting dishes plus great pastries, fruit, juice and coffee. Plus it was close to lots of recreational amenities and there are a few things to do right in Westby, which is a nice little town as well. I would definitely stay here again!
4.2 on August 11, 2010
We really enjoyed out stay!
4.8 on August 09, 2010
We love Westby House and staying in the Pinewood room was perfect for our trout fishing trip to the area. It has a lovely tour fishing theme and is so comfortable. We like to fish in the evening and leave early to fish in the morning. We were able to do this and not disturb other guests since the room is in a separate building with its own entrance. Enjoying the breakfast of scones, cereal, fruit and yogurt at our leisure also works well with our schedule. The room was quite for being street side. We will stay here again on our next overnight trip to the area.
5 on August 04, 2010
Very pleasant - I am definitely thinking of ways to get back and spend more time....1 night was not enough.
4.4 on August 03, 2010
What a relaxing, comfortable spot Mike and Marie have created in small-town, rural Wisconsin! The Tower room was a spacious, well-lit, lovely room. The fireplace and sitting area was an extra plus. Marie's scrumptious breakfast started our day of antique hunting and pleasant car driving through Amish country. Beautiful area... We will definitely return!
5 on July 27, 2010
This was our 2nd stay at Westby House and we found all aspects to be outstanding. We stayed in the Westby Suite and will request it again on our next visit. Marie and Mike are both gracious and friendly. We are already looking forward to our next visit.

We stayed at the Westby House July 11-13, 2010 in the Tower Suite. It is fabulous!! Very well cared for, extremely clean and comfortable. It was so nice to have the extra living room area that closes off from the bedroom. I was surprised at how great the hot water pressure is for an older home - we had great showers! The food is delicious and Marie was always right there to serve more coffee, etc. Marie and Mike have thought of everything! We spent most of our time on the front porch just relaxing, and can't wait to go back and do it all again!

4.8 on June 23, 2010
The Westby House Inn delivered what I hope for in a B&B. Privacy, quiet, plush setting and full unique breakfast . Other nice touches were cold lemonade available in the afternoon, and early morning coffee and treats close to the room. Hostess was friendly without being intrusive.
5 on June 22, 2010
We needed to find a place to stay during a "work" weekend for us. We are florists and were doing a large wedding in LaCrosse, WI. We could not believe our fortunate luck in locating the Westby House Inn for the few hours we did have to relax and sleep! An absolutely beautiful place and wonderful breakfast right in our room. We will be sharing brochures in our area and WE WILL be returning for a "fun" weekend sometime soon!
4.4 on June 21, 2010
We just finished a 2 night stay here, and I couldn't be happier with our experience. The pictures on their website are indeed just how the property appears. Extremely clean and well run extablishment. Breakfast was outstanding. No prepackaged muffins and Cheerios here. Freshly made scones, fruit medly, and eggs benedict one morning, followed by freshly made muffins, more fresh fruit and a wonderfull croissant variation of french toast the next day. Delicious to say the least. If you're looking for a place for a group of guys to hang out in and get rowdy, this isn't for you. If you're looking for a more refined yet very comfortable place to stay, check this place out. We're going back to the area in the fall, and we will definitely stay here again.

I'm not a typical B and B person, but I was lucky enough to discover Westby House and it is now where I stay on my frequent fishing trip to the area. They provide a cold breakfast in the room so I can head to the stream on my schedule. The room is great and comfortable and Marie and Mike are wonderful hosts. Having their cafe, Ole and Lena's, next door make is a nice extra and a great place for lunch. Whether the fishing is good or not, Westby House always makes my trip enjoyable.

Reality 2: 911 call, nice response from emergency services on isolated area of the 32 mile bike trail. Reality 3: Ambulance ride, 4 hours in ER, then dinner at McDonalds instead of the fancy place. Reality 4: Westby House Inn - a very nice B&B and exceptional friendly and hospitable innkeepers, Mike and Marie. THANKS.

We loved our trip to western Wisconsin and one of the highlights was our stay in the Westby House Inn. Marie was so attentive and met every need. The rooms were darling, the food was incredible, and the atmosphere was the most charming we've ever seen. It was our first stay in a B&B and it will be a hard one to beat. Easy access to world class fly-fishing, too, which was my husband's thrill!

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Westby House. Marie and her staff were friendly and accommodating. The suite was roomy and clean, and the facilities were first rate. We had an opportunity to enjoy the town as well, which was friendly and pleasant. We would definitely return for another visit.

I surprised my husband with a Bed and Breakfast birthday - I chose the Westby House Inn because his birthday coincided with the Norwegian Celebration I had heard about and wanted to attend. The Westby House Inn was more than accomodating to my every wish. The room was warm, which is a number one requirement to me, a "freeze-baby". The gas fireplace heated the room in no time, and increased the "romanticness" of the Victorian Room. The huge hot tub was another treat for us. The breakfast was delicious, and the Inkeeper, Marie, prepared my husband's meal a special way, as he has a problem swallowing. She made no big deal about it, and served him at the same time she served me. My husband felt very comfortable as we enjoyed conversation with others enjoying their breakfast with us. I would definitely enjoy staying with Marie and Mike Cimino again at their lovely Westby House Inn. My husband said he will carry happy memories of his 68th birthday!!!Thank you. Marilyn Liesch

We loved our room, the only complaint that we have is that at a lot of the other B&B's that we have stayed at there is cookies or soda or some kind of treat for the guest upon arriving or during the stay.
4.6 on April 14, 2010
I was extremely pleased with my stay at the Westby House. The accomodations were very clean, comfortable and inviting. I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone and will be back in the future myself. The afternoon tea was also very good. No detail was over looked. Excellent!!!!

I met two of my very good high school friends at the Westby House for a girls weekend because it's halfway between the Twin Cites and Milwaukee. It was lovely! We had our own suite with a kitchen. Marie served us tea in our suite complete with all sorts of sandwiches and goodies. We laughed and talked for about twelve hours straight. We were wisely put in the suite separate from the main house, so we didn't keep anyone up. In the morning we had the most wonderful breakfast I've had in a long time. There is not one thing I would change about the Westby house...and I'm picky about my B&B visits.

As old high school friends living from Minneapolis to Madison to Milwaukee, we don't see each other often. Westby was a great mid-point and the kitchen table in the Atrium room kitchen at the Westby House was great for hours of reminiscing and catching up. Marie's wonderful tea and breakfast topped off a splendid weekend.

My husband surprised me with a visit to The Westby House Victorian Inn for my 60th birthday. It was a wonderful stay. From the minute we walked in the door we felt very welcome and immediately felt as if we had "come home". Marie and Mike are very hospitable and friendly. We stayed in the Tower Suite - absolutely beautiful. Our every need was taken care of with the nice touch to details. A CD player with CD's provided for romantic and calming background music; bathrobes and slippers; body lotions; and TV with many movies to choose from. In the morning there was delicious coffee available outside our room. My husband had requested the cheese and fruit plate along with the chocolates - very nice and very very good. As you can probably tell, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to recommend it to others or to go back.

From the moment we arrived, Mike and Marie made us feel at home. We stayed in the guest house (separate from the main house) in the Atrium Suite. The pictures on the website don't do this b&b justice. They thought of EVERYTHING to make your stay enjoyable and relaxing. From thoughtful ammenities to delicious food, you will be amazed that such a wonderful retreat is so closeby.

Our stay was excellent. Many small amenities including wake-up coffee, bath robes, books to read, and movies to watch. The home is beautifully decorated. We were pleasantly surprised to find that dinner was being served on Friday 2/13 when the website indicated that it was only going to be served on 2/14 for Valentine's Day. The dinner was superb as was the breakfast the following morning. Overall, a very pleasant stay.

From the registration on-line to check out, it was very smooth and pleasant. The rooms are clean and beautiful. The only change I would make would be to have a little less accessories on the table top/tv stand so there would be more room to place our things (cosmetics/personal care items) while staying there. The food is always really good and that is key to making this a great value. We also enjoy their coffee shop when we pass through town. The scones are awesome!

We stayed two days at the Westby House Victorian Inn, in the middle of January. We were the only guests, and Marie was a gracious hostess. She shared the news of the area, and her breakfast was absolutely wonderful. The room was charming and comfortable. I would highly recommend staying at the Westby B&B.

Exceptional attention to detail throughout the entire facility. Fantastic breakfasts. One of the best B & B we've stayed at in 20+ years!

We stayed in the Tower. Waht a beautiful Room. We loved having a sitting room to relax in. The snak we had the first night was so wonderful. Great selection of goodies! The breakfasts were out of this world. So elegantly done from the food to the service. It almost makes me want to cook after buying the Association Cook Books. I took a nap though and then that thought went away. We can't wait to stay there again.

2 couples whose adult children came and left by Christmas Day. What to do? Go to Mexico for a few days? Air travel is expensive and there are security issues right now. How about a winter get-away to the Westby House? Absolutely perfect and just what we needed. We relaxed in the charming side by side rooms, enjoyed our 2 scrumptious breakfasts and the hospitality of Mike and Marie. We snowshoed in the Kickapoo Reserve on a picture perfect winter day and then relaxed at an excellent Westby Supper Club for drinks and dinner. We headed back to the Inn to our cozy room where we all watched the Badger Bowl game on the new tv. Mornings were spent reading and drinking more coffee in the charming parlor, soaking up the winter sun streaming through the Victorian windows or strolling through Westby, enjoying the small town atmosphere and exploring wonderful shops. This was just what we needed!

My husband wanted to have alittle get away for just the two of us after I have put in mny hours of work on my home farm after the renters took advantage of my brother (house was such a mess and unliveable.) We worked many hours along with some relatives to clean it up. It was the first time for us to spend time alone at a Bed and Breakfast (Westby House Victorian Inn --- Westby Suite.) An old time fashion Christmas was enjoyed by the whole family in many years on the home farm. My mom, who is 91 years of age, got to enjoy and make more memories of times when we were small children and now the great-grand children too. She wanted to have Christmas on the farm because she does have some health problems and she said it could be her last Christmas. I am very glad I put in many hours to get things liveable again for the love of my family and especially for my mom. My husband said he wanted just him and me to have this get away. It was soooo-- very relaxing, with the gracious hosts and hostess for their special hospitality. The breakfast was very delicious!!!!! We sure recommend this place for anyone --- friendly, cleanliness, quiet, and to just relax.

I used to play in this house 66 years ago and just had to check it out. It was wonderful, so beautiful. I would recommend checking it out at Christmas time, the decorations are spectacular. We had a delicious breakfast with the biggest blackberries I have ever seen. It was great.

We stayed in the Scandia room which is actually seperate from the main house. This was nice because we could come and go as we pleased. This unit was very nice and very clean and although we didn't have a chance to meet Marie, Mike was very helpful with providing dinner recommendations.
5 on October 15, 2009
We were running late the day we arrived at the Westby House. Marie and Mike welcomed us graciously, and did not make us feel at all guilty about the time. Would go back in a heart beat.
5 on October 13, 2009
Marie and Mike, Thank you guys so much for a wonderful stay and birthday trip! I can't wait to come back and visit soon. I miss your first class breakfast already. :) I really appreciated being able to stay an extra night, and your accomodations to make it so. After a full days' worth of adventures, it was so nice to come "home" to a hot bath, extroardinary glass of wine, delicious cheeses, fruits, and chocolates, and the most comfortable beds. It was a true pampering. Thank you so much!
5 on October 13, 2009
We were so thrilled when we walked into the Pinewood room to see how wonderful it is! The pictures do not do it justice! It was a wonderful get away for my husband and I and we will definately come to the Westby House again! Thank you!

We stayed in the Library Room. Marie has redecorated it recently and we enjoyed it as much as we did when staying in this room before, which is very much indeed! The Westby House is very quiet and restful. It is very clean and comfortable. I also like that Marie has implemented so many little touches that lead to excellence and also to a very special ambience. Breakfast is always delicious with professional service. We are always happy to return to Westby House. As a final thought, Marie and Mike have been helpful and understanding with any special needs of ours.
5 on October 09, 2009
I loved the decor, the privacy, cleanliness, service and kindness shown by the owners and staff. It was a wonderful experience that I hope to have again.
4.4 on October 04, 2009
Our stay was short, but wonderful. Our room and the whole house was very clean with many amenities. Marie offered a delicious breakfast and conversation on the history of the home. I would recommend a stay here. I know we will return!
4.6 on September 30, 2009
We booked our room in Westby WI, outside of the LaCrosse city limits, as we wanted the feel of being "out in the Country" for the few short days over the wknd of Sept 25-27! Because we were attending the Oktoberfest Celebration in LaCrosse, having a "separate" access (at all hours) to our room, was important to us! Well that is what we got with the Scandia room! It was a separate bldg off to the side of the Main Victorian Inn...ample parking too! Our room was fantastic---our Bed was perched high in a loft area, with easy access using a spiral staircase, the kitchenette below-was well stocked each day with: coffee, cereal, milk, juice & fresh fruit! Our Bathroom was surprisingly large...there was a shower, a nice vanity/sink area, mirror, hair dryer and a table too. It even came complete with matching Robes! Even though our visit was short, we would love to return & again stay at the Westby Inn! Thanks again Pam & Jim

Just off the highway on the to the Kickapoo Valley sits the quaint Westby Inn. It's a delightful victorian situated in the Scandanavian Westby, WI. Large, well appointed rooms and delicious breakfasts await your stay.
4.8 on September 20, 2009
We very much enjoyed our 5 night stay in the detached guest house (the Pinewood Room). The room contained everything we needed--and more! The kitchenette was most appreciated, the living room was amazingly spacious, the bed was nice & comfy, and the bathrobes were oh so cozy! Every day, while we were out, our next morning's continental breakfast was "delivered": cereals, baked goods, fruit, juice, yogurt & milk--a great way to start out each day. Our hosts did everything right to make us feel very welcome. This is a great place to stay if you want to get a feel for the Westby area--we recommend it highly!
4.8 on September 16, 2009
This is absolutely the best B&B in southwestern Wisconsin, and my wife and I have been to most of them in that area of the state. Mike and Marie will make you feel as though you have been friends forever. The breakfasts (we stayed two nights) were delicious, the room (we had the Library Room) was very clean with all kinds of thoughtful touches, and the whole atmosphere was one of relaxation. The inn is nestled in some of the most beautiful countryside of Wisconsin, and the Amish vendors in the area adds to its quaintness. Grant Mattes, Sheboygan WI
5 on September 16, 2009
We happened to be in the area for an appreciation dinner at the Harvest Moon Farm where we have a share. Since we live on the North side of Chicago, we planned to stay overnight. This B&B is absolutely charming and really a comfortable place with wonderful Hosts who made us feel at home. The breakfast in the morning was delicious and beautifully presented. We have the highest regard and we'll return again, and recommend it to our friends!
5 on September 12, 2009
It was a restful and pleasureable to stay at Westby Bed & Breakfast. Marie & Mike are sensational Hostess and Host and the conversations were heart warming. We had a great connection....FOOD. And thanx Marie for the TIP. We certainly will go back...WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE. Ben & Edwina

My wife and I have always wanted to stay at a B&B, so for our 30th anniversary I decided to surprise her. We had a great time and I believe we have grown even closer.
4.8 on September 02, 2009
We have stayed at several B&Bs and this is at the top of our list. Very comfortable, excellent service, great food, and extremely neat and clean. It's easy to tell that Mike & Marie take great pride in sharing the Inn with their guests. We will be back and will pass the word along.

All the details were taken care of by Marie & Mike. They both are very outgoing and informative about what the area has to offer. They were accomodating to allow us to use one of the dining rooms for cards at night. The gourmet breakfast was delicious. Westby is also close enough to many sightseeing or shopping areas. We loved the "library" room we had, and enjoyed our wine and appetizers upon arrival.
4.6 on July 30, 2009
My stay was very pleasant and accomodations were as fine as one could want. I cannot rate dining as I did not use the dining facility. The continental breakfast offered in my room was good.

My husband and I stayed at Westby House for his 40th b-day to do some local fly fishing. We do a lot of traveling, and try to stay at B & B's as often as possible. I have to say we were extremely impressed with the Westby House. The rooms were clean and fresh, and the little details the owners added were great. A book of local restaurants, and full course breakfast to die for (and she even was prepared for my gluten allergy), as well as a trail map for biking the next day. What a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city. I'd recommend the Westby House Victorian Inn to anyone looking for a great escape.
3.8 on July 28, 2009
We stayed in the Pinewood room, which is a detached room with a private entrance. It was a great value and came with a continental breakfast each day. The room was immaculate, as was the entire property. I highly recommend the Westby House for those travelling to the Kickapoo Valley in Wisconsin.
4.8 on July 22, 2009
We stayed at the Westby House this summer, it was very clean and charming Bed and Breakfast. The breakfast served was very good.

This is a lovely B&B and the proprietors are friendly and helpful.

This was our second time to stay at the Westby House and it will become a tradition as long as we are able to visit Wisconsin for our family reunion. Marie and Mike and their lovely inn make so much more an enjoyable trip. Enjoy selecting a different room each stay. This time it was the garden room and it was decorated to attractively. With a lot of extra in room amenities. The service was great and breakfast both mornings was thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you Marie and Mike for the Birthday wishes as well.

Great breakfasts, beautiful Victorian accomodations, friendly Innkeepers and a great location. What more does one need?
4.2 on June 15, 2009
Great place to stay when fishing the area trout streams. The breakfast provided for the "fisherman"s rooms" is a great idea. Very comfortable room to spend the non-fishing hours. It would be great if the check-in times could be adjusted since the 4PM - 7 pm window is prime flyfishing time.
5 on June 11, 2009
We stayed in the Garden Room which was so sunny & warm. The bed was so comfortable & Marie you mad such wonderful Breakfast the two mornings we were there. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home & pictures of all the hard work you & Mike did to make it a MasterPiece. We will share with others about your home. Ole & Lena's was such a cute diner & we enjoyed the lunch very much! We didn't know that you owned that too! Wow! Thanks & God Bless! Nan & Ron

This B&B offers the best possible seats for the Syttende Mai parade, right on the lovely front porch! Conveniently located next to a coffeeshop with light lunch items. What a beautiful area to visit! Be sure to take a drive on the rustic country roads. If you canoe or bike like we did, this B&B's breakfast will give you energy to spare! Delicious! Bed was SOOO comfy.
4.6 on May 19, 2009
We stayed for only one night in the Pinewood room, but had a great time none the less. The very clean and upkept room made our stay enjoyable. The theme of the room was carried over through every small detail, down to the little knick knacks and decorations. We will definitely return again.

Our weekend at Westby House Victorian Inn was just what we needed. The gormet breakfasts, clean comfortable rooms and warm atmosphere all contributed to a wonderful experience.

They were especially helpful in recommending restaurants and area attractions which made our stay all the more enjoyable. We hope to return in future and would certainly recommend the Westby House! "Well Rested"...from Wisconsin

My wife and I stayed in the Victorianne Suite on our 10th anniversary. We enjoyed our stay so much we booked the suite again for our most recent anniversary. Our stay was very relaxing.

We were in need for a night away and somewhere close. We had not been in the area for some years and were very surprised by the Westby House. It was both relaxing, victorian and comfortable. The whole stay was great. I usually do not complete reviews but felt a need to pass along our great stay. I would recommend the Westby House to everyone I know.

Upon leaving S. Dakota, we were informed that the Victorian inn we were suppose to stay at had no power & the road was flooded. What to do? We happened to find this one in a B&B book at the Welcome Center in LaCrosse. We called & they had an opening - we had the MOST beautiful suite, such elegance. Marie is a very charming innkeeper and a lot of fun. We enjoyed ice cream that their shop across the road, too. VERY good! Check them out!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, especially the fine quality of food, table settings, great coffee and service. Very clean and comfortable bed. Being able to book online was great - we had do make rush arrangements and the whole experience was seamless. An older friend was with us and she was given extra special attention. We all enjoyed the decor (just done up for Christmas) of the beautiful and tastefully done inn. A fun little gift shop completed the setting. We will certainly be back - even though we only live a few miles away!
4.4 on November 18, 2008
We happened on this little gem while chasing fall colors. Beautiful accommodations and a tasteful, light breakfast. Check out their coffee shop, as well!
4.6 on November 12, 2008
Marie and Mike are friendly and run a beautiful bed and breakfast. The house is gorgeous and decorated with great attention to detail. Two things could be improved in my opinion; the pillows were rather stiff and hard, and the first breakfast we had did not have much protein. But everything was very delicious, fruit and juice, muffin, good bacon. And the coffee was very good. I would love to stay there again!
5 on November 12, 2008
I stayed in the Victorianne Suite this November and it was just outstanding. The room was very clean. The star ceiling was just wonderful, I had never seen anything like it. The service could not be better. The breakfast was just remarkable. Every thing about this B&B is just a wonderful experience.

The Westby Victorian Inn is a lovely home. Our hosts are very gracious and caring. The food is exquisite. The rooms are not only beautiful, but comfortable and spotless.
5 on November 08, 2008
We enjoyed the weekend stay. Great food presented in the most elegant way. Marie and Mike were very knowledgeable and helpful in giving us local activies and attractions to complete our weekend away from our busy lives. Ole & Lena's Kaffe Hus, which Marie and Mike also operate, was a favorite of ours. The ice cream was a great way for us to end our day before retiring to our beautiful Westby Suite. We highly recommend the Westby House as a place to relax.
4.4 on November 05, 2008
We thought the property was beautiful and meticulous. Very clean and comfortable. Coffee was not good at all, weak and watered down. Disappointing at a B&B.

My husband and I needed to get away from our hectic work schedule and reconnect. This weekend could not have gone better. The true rating of how good our stay was....We didn't want to leave and when we had to.... we vowed to come back. We loved everything about the Westby from the room, service, food and friendliness of Marie and Mike. What can you change? I can't think of one things. My husband and I reconnected and it was only made better because of where we choose to stay. Thank you does not begin to express our gratitude.

My husband and I were at the Westby House to celebrate our 31st anniversary from 10/11 to 10/13. We have visited many B & Bs over the past 10 years, and agreed that Westby House had the largest rooms and suites that we have ever had the pleasure of occupying! Attention is paid to every detail in the rooms, and the Tower Suite was spacious and welcoming. Mike and Marie are experienced innkeepers who make it appear effortless to accommodate special diets, special requests, etc. It was a pleasure to be pampered by them, and to have peace of mind that every last detail had been taken care of. I don't know if they planned it, but our breakfast tablemates were interesting and added to our B & B experience! Mike and Mary are also well-versed in the locations of various attractions throughout the area, as well as restaurants that could accommodate hungry travelers at 6 p.m. on a Saturday evening! The Hidden Valley area of WI was absolutely beautiful at this time of year, and we are happy to have found a "home" for our fall anniversary trips. It is also just 28 miles from LaCrosse, so if your heart is seeking some time with 'Ol Man River, the Westby House is the perfect place to stay!
4.6 on October 17, 2008
After just two nights we felt like Marie was a longtime friend. She directed us to the quaint Amish farms in the area and to outstanding places to eat. Of course, this was in addition to the clear, comfortable, well appointed room. The dining was superb, we think Marie should be publishing a cook book. We look forward to returning and encourage you to enjoy this great B &B.
5 on October 15, 2008
My family and I had a wonderful four day stay at the Westby House. The fall colors and weather was amazing and the city of Westby is centrally located which makes Driftless Area access very easy. Mike & Marie Cimino, the Westby House Innkeepers, are unsurpassed with the warm hospitality that they provide and Marie always cooks up a delicious breakfast. It is Marie's life passion to run a B&B and it really shows when you stay at the Westby house. Be sure to stop at Ole & Lena's coffee shop while in Westby because it is run by Mike and Marie with the same high quality level as the Westby House. I highly recommend a stay at the Westby House!

This was our first stay at a B&B, and we were quite surprised how beautiful it was. Our Westby Suite was decorated in antiques and very spacious. We were very pleased with everything. The only thing that we were not happy about was the fact that the room had no air conditioning, only a fan, and was somewhat uncomfortable for relaxing. The weather was unusually hot for this time of year ( Oct. ) 82 degrees, and if at least a window air conditioning unit was available, our stay would have been alot better. Over all a beautiful B&B and our hosts were wonderful.

Beautiful and quaint, we stayed in the Scandia room which is like a private cottage and we enjoyed our stay. We look forward to going back.

You know how they say to expect less and you won't be dissapointed, well throw that adage away for your stay at 'The Westby House'. Malgorzata, my beautiful girlfriend and I (Rudy) had an amazing time in this wonderful home... It was just that! We felt the cozy warmth of home, while we delighted with the fine meals and treatment from Marie and Mike. We inhaled a refreshing air of vacation living. Furthermore, when we switched from 'The Jaccuzi Suite' to the 'The Pinewood Room', we thought that we were downgrading, since the price implied that, but we soon found out that we had just another amazing room with a different motif and soul. Malgorzata has travelled all over the world, and she was absolutely delighted with 'The Westby House'! We partook in early morning jogs, while enjoying the amazing country scenery. We were just a relaxing drive away from horseback riding, dinner boat rides in the great Mississippi River, cinema, and wonderful restaurant experiences in neighboring towns. If you want to indulge in a fine and relaxing vacation in the Wisconsin country, you have to book this house! We will definitely be back. We absolutely loved it!

We wanted a memorable 6th anniversary and we have it!! Mike and Marie opened their home and gave us the memories we both will cherish. The beautiful house, remarkable food, and of course the attention an experience you can’t get at a hotel!! We felt as though we were taken back in time and showed top-notch hospitality. I would recommend this to anyone who deserves a relaxing, enjoyable weekend with their loved one!

We went to the Westby House to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. The room we had reserved was not accessible due to some unexpected concrete work being done on the day we arrived. Marie upgraded us to a larger corner room and offered us complimentary (and delicious) full breakfasts the next morning. The room was lovely, the breakfast wonderful, and the ambiance of the inn and the town charming, and our hostess was very gracious. We felt very pampered.

We came to Wesby House to share our 1st anniversary. We wanted someplace romantic and the tower suite more than exceeded our expectations!! We had never stayed at a B & B before and were shocked by how wonderful the breakfast was. Marie is an excellent cook and she and Mike are so friendly! They make you feel right at home. They helped us select a wonderful restaraunt for our special evening and made the reservations for us!! During the day we went kayaking down the Kikapoo river and had so much fun. The river is high from all of the flooding so we had rapids and fallen trees to nagotiate-a true adventure:) We also were able to stop by an Amish communittee and see the wonderful shops. We are so pleased with our selection of the Wesby House and have so many wonderful memories of our first anniversary together!

Being rerouted because of the Iowa floods, we found this quaint and very welcoming inn. Marie greeted us as if we have been friends for years. The inn is MAGNIFICENT - the open stairway, the inviting dining areas and then the room! Wow...we were fortunate to get the Wesby Room. Enchanting! The room was VERY spacious, inviting and comfortable! This inn was the most quiet and relaxing inn on our trip! Marie was a very warm and delightful hostess - we needed that after being rerouted with the Iowa floods. Thanks Marie and Mike for an awesome night's lodging, scrumtious breakfast and small town friendliness!

Just stayed at the Westby House on the weekend of Memorial Day, 2008. Folks that run the Inn were very gracious, beautiful B&B, rooms and meals. Definitely request the full breakfast...delicious! Not sure how the price compares to other B&B's but I found it a "good bang for the buck". No problems with security, noise from people running down the halls or ice machines. The area around the town of Westby is beautiful and everybody you meet is welcoming. Very good small stream trout fishing in the area.

Absolutely beautiful property! We felt like we had stepped back in time. Every room is exquisitely decorated with antiques and period pieces, but very comfortable. Exceptionally clean! Delicious food graciously served on delicate china! Not a detail has been missed in recreating the environment of a gentile Victorian home. Room rates are very affordably priced...we will definitely be staying here again!

We stayed overnight at the Westby House in December while attending a Holiday party in town. The accomodations were very comfortable and clean. Mike and Marie ensured we were comfortable and the breakfast was delicious! Thanks for a wonderful overnight!

Ariving on a snowy day just before Thanksgiving we were given the warmest of welcomes. Anything you need Marie and Mike are there to help-a step back in time to good old values in a house that is charming.

The Westby House Vistorian Inn and the innkeepers are hospitable and welcoming. It is an excellent B&B - professionally run and a pleasure to be welcomed there as a guest. The innkeepers have thought about every detail to make one's stay comfortable, pleasant and enjoyable. I am sure that you will like it there. I most certainly did!

We enjoyed the comfortable suite and the privacy with our own bathroom adn jacuzzi. The hosts were very friendly and made accomedations for a gluten-free meal. We had a great time!

This was our first time at a B & B. We could not have asked for more! We both love antiques and the Victorian age, and the detail that went into this home is amazing!Highly recommended!

Mike and Marie are great hosts, serve wonderful food, have great ideas for spending the day away from the suite, and have kept their B&B in amazing shape! It was our first B&B experience, but it won't be our last. Put this one on your list of places to see.

Lovely place to get away to. I wish that my house was this clean! No details were overlooked. Beware that the shops of Westby close up at 5pm on Saturday, so come early. What a great breakfast you put on. I will recommend the dining room to nearby relatives. Thank you again, and we hope to be back.

We stayed in the Pinewood room, a two story room with a loft sleeping area and a kitchenette and living area on the first floor. Everywhere you go in house is exceptionally clean. It is centrally located for biking, hiking, golfing, and horseback riding during the spring, summer, and fall and a plethora of winter activities. The breakfast each day was outstanding and Mike and Marie offered alternatives for those with exceptional dietary needs. We stayed 3 nights with 4 other couples in our party. The only thing we found that might be improved is having a common area for a large group, maybe the front room of the dining room which be closed off in the evening. There was a large screened canopy outside and the weather for the first week of October was unseasonably warm. This allowed all of us to socialize whenever we wanted. You could not ask for a greater host and hostess. Mike and Marie made us feel like we were visting friends. I would recommend this wonderful place to anyone.

10 of us took a long weekend getaway together at the Westby House. The rooms were great, the food was great, the hosts were great and the weather was great.

Wonderful attention to details, this one is the definition of "hospitality", not to mention beautiful.

We had a nice time in the library room. We stayed here 5 years ago for our honeymoon and fell in love with the area and the Inn.

My husband and I stayed at the Westby House Victorian Inn with two of my brothers and their wives over Labor Day weekend. Mike and Marie run a lovely B&B. The Victorian home is beautiful and IMMACULATE! By far the best kept B&B I've ever been in and I've been in dozens over the years. The breakfasts were fabulous and the owners charming. We would definitely recommend this inn to anyone.

We have not stayed here as overnight guests(we live 4 miles away), but this is our favorite place to eat, wonderful food and service, and the turtle cheesecake is to die for! We gave our grown-up children(2 different couples) gifts of a night at this B&B and both couples absolutely loved it! Marie and Mike do a wonderful job!

Even though our trip was one to be remembered with the flood, the B & B was wonderful. The hosts were very friendly, room was beautiful and cozy, and breakfast was tasty. This was our first B and B stay and we will be back. This trip was to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary.

We stayed in the Pinewood Room/Suite. It was lovely. One small thing that was not perfect is that our room faced out to the street and there is a pub across the street that was a little noisy on Friday night. It was a cool night so we had the windows open. The spiral staircase can be a bit challenging to navigate in the middle of the night, but Mike and Marie provided a nightlight/flashlight which came in handy. Other than that,everything was wonderful. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend the Westby house to our friends. We would like to come back again.

Mike and Marie Cimino are the perfect hosts in their gorgeous Victorian mansion. We stayed in perfect comfort and the breakfast was outstanding--especially Marie's zucchini pancakes. We highly recommend dinner at DiSciascio's in nearby Coon Valley and also the "Ski Jump Tour" drive. We can't wait to return, hoping to bike the "Amish Tour" in the fall.

First B&B my wife and I have ever been to. Can't imagine that there are to many out there that are as good as this one. I searched the internet for hours trying to find the right place for the right price and found The Westby House. I was more than pleased when we arrived, and even more pleased when we left. We plan on going back to The Westby House again!

We stayed and celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary on Saturday, August 4th. We had stayed here our wedding on the exact same day. We have stayed here two other times and have always enjoyed our stay. Mike and Marie are wonderful hosts and do a fantastic job making your stay peaceful and special. The food is always unique and delicious. Overall the Westby House is a one of a kind romantic place. "A Hidden Gem"!

Celebrating our 26th anniversary at The Westby House couldn't have been better. Our spacious room was perfectly comfortable. The location was ideal. We enjoyed biking the Sparta-Elroy trail, had a superb dinner in downtown LaCross, and had every question enthusiastically answered by the innkeeper,Marie. What a beautiful B&B, and so affordable!

We chose the Westby house because it was near to our destination - the Kickapoo Country Fair and we only required a single night's stay. Marie and Mike are very gracious hosts. The gardens around the yard were in their summer glory. We stayed in the Victorian room which is in the annex next to the main house.

Mike and Marie are delightful hosts. It would be impossible to stay at the Westby house and not have a great time.

I arranged for a group of 11 with vintage cars to stay at the inn. Everything from food, room and hospitality was great. I worked with the inn keepers via email months in advance and everthing went smoothly. We have traveled the state to various inns for 20 years and all agreed it was one of the finest if not the best value.

Friendly, helpful, accomodating, gracious... How many adjectives would you like? The accomodations and our hosts exceeded our expectations in every way. Mike and Marie are the consummate hosts. And the Westby House is simply beautiful inside and out. Little requests were seen to immediately, the breakfasts were delicious, meeting some of the other guests (all repeat customers) was such fun. And all the "little touches" were included that made our stay a real pleasure. We can recommend Westby House without reservation, and know we'll be back again. We're almost afraid to try anywhere else, for fear it will pale in comparison.

We had a wonderful evening in this cute cabin style retreat. It was very comfortable, and we lacked for nothing.Beware: Street cleaner comes by at 5:00a.m!

We were greeted warmly and escorted to the truly lovely Rose Room. Mike and Marie were wonderfully friendly, gracious and helpful. The food was superb and beautifully presented. We will return!
