Truly lovely hosts will greet you

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!

Great time

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.

Innkeeper Response
Happy to help! There is nothing like getting the inside details than from a local! So, come "Stay Like A Local" at the Westby House Inn!

Wonderful Weekend Getaway

5 on June 22, 2016

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.

Innkeeper Response
Offering the Right Levels of History, Comfort, and Hospitality is our motto! With 18 years of experience at Innkeeping, it is rewarding to have so many repeat guests because of what we offer. There are so many wonderful things to do and see in Southwest Wisconsin's Driftless Area that add to enjoyable weekends.

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.

Innkeeper Response
We offer several "Enhance Your Stay" packages that are waiting in your room for your arrival. The date-night package of wine, cheeses, chocolates and fresh flowers is perfect for those arriving late or early. It can be added-on to your reservation online or by phone. Thank you guest for taking the time to share your experience with our future guests!

Home away from home

5 on June 14, 2016

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!

Innkeeper Response
Breakfast does seem to top off a weekend at the inn with our guests! We enjoy being creative and like using local foods in the menu. We also offer a lighter breakfast for those who are not breakfast diners, or not as adventurous with breakfast foods as maybe dinner foods. Glad the atmosphere and comfort met the expectations of this guest. And.. dear guest, thank you for the glowing review.

Excellent stay!

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.

Innkeeper Response
The Rose Room is just one of five B&B rooms that speaks to our mission of 'Comfort, History, and Hospitality'. We are happy that all these were met on this stay. Hope you can return to enjoy more of the inn again!

A night getaway

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.

Innkeeper Response
Even getting away for one night will energize oneself! Our Tower Room is a great space to do that in. Appreciate the 5 star review!

Innkeeper Response
Birthday celebrations do need to be different and staying at a bed and breakfast is the best way to do just that! We are so happy for this birthday got celebrated the Right Way!

1st Time at B&B

4.8 on October 21, 2015

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.

Innkeeper Response
B&B's are the Best Way to Stay and overjoyed that your 1st B&B impressed you to either return to the inn and/or stay at others. Our Motto - Offering the Right Levels of History, Comfort, and Hospitality.

Wonderful stay
