Overnight motorcycle ride

We were very, very pleased when we rode up to The Westby House Inn. The home is amazing. The Innkeepers are so very pleasant and our breakfast was awesome. We will most definitely return!!!!

Fabulous Weekend Get Away

5 on September 19, 2017

We loved every minute of our 2 night stay at the Westby House Inn. Marie and Mike, the hard working owners, could not have been more gracious and helpful. They suggested we eat at the Westby Old Town Inn, which has great service and delicious food. The Inn is a beautiful Victorian home that Marie has tastefully decorated for the Fall season. We stayed in the Westby Room and loved the decorations, King bed with the Comfy sheets, and of course, the delicious homemade breakfasts. We will definitely be back!!

Anniversary Stay

5 on September 19, 2017

We stayed in the Tower room which had the adjoining parlor. Everything was wonderful, the space, the attention to detail, and the friendly conversations with Mike and Marie. The breakfasts were excellent and unique. This B&B experience exceeded our expectations. The area is beautiful as well.

Great Anniversary get away

5 on September 05, 2017

We stayed in the Rose Room for our anniversary trip. We travel often to the Westby Viroqua area to enjoy the fly fishing streams. The Westby house was a great place to stay, quiet, clean, charming and Marie and Mike were welcoming and gracious hosts. The morning breakfast were great.

One Night Getaway

4.8 on September 02, 2017

We found Westby House Inn advertised on a website for nearby Sparta Wisconsin (bicycling capital of the Midwest), and thought we'd give it a try. Only had time for a one night stay (Saturday, Aug. 26th, 2017), but absolutely loved this place! We will definitely go back for a longer stay when we have more time! We stayed in a cozy little suite in the guest house, right next door to the main inn. Super clean, beautifully decorated little suite with no detail left out! Fire place, hot tub, and full kitchen make Westby comfortable, cozy, and convenient for any length of stay! The owners are super nice folks who make you feel right at home! A fabulous breakfast is served in the main dining room each morning that is not to be missed!

Anniversary Stay

4.8 on August 14, 2017

We stayed in the Library Room for our Anniversary. The room was nicely appointed including an eclectic choice for reading. The Breakfast was delicious. This is a great place to stay if you want a quiet stay in a beautiful region of Wisconsin. Close to bike trails and kayaking but just as easily a great place to read a good book.

Innkeeper Response
Anniversary and birthday celebrations are the main reason folks come to stay with us. Like this couple, it is the abundance of outdoor activities that make them book a stay! Check out www.DriftlessWisconsin.com for great things to do and explore in this part of Wisconsin. It was great to read this wonderful review - thank you guest!

Lovely getaway in western Wisconsin!

5 on August 02, 2017

The Westby House Inn is a wonderful place to stay when visiting western Wisconsin! I was greeted warmly by the owners/operators who graciously waited for me to arrive (a little later than I was expecting to do). I chose the Skandia Room and loved the privacy and spaciousness of it. The Inn is a lovely place to get away and yet convenient enough to walk around and enjoy the town.

Innkeeper Response
The Inn's central location is perfect for visiting this part of Southwest Wisconsin. Just 19 miles to La Crosse and the Mississippi River Bluffs. Easy drive to hop on to the Elroy-Sparta State BIke Trail. In 24 minutes you can be in Ontario and canoeing the Kickapoo River. Westby itself is a qauint town with a strong Norwiegian heritage. Each of our rooms have their own personality, so look them over on our web site, www.westbyhouse.com, to choose the one that fits your desires and needs. Appreciate this kind review.

A beautiful inn!

5 on July 26, 2017

We stayed in the Atrium room. It was very roomy and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast (tropical pancakes) was amazing. Marie and Mike were pleasant and accommodating. We really enjoyed our stay, and if we are ever in the area again, we would definitely stay there again!

Innkeeper Response
The Atrium Room is located in the Guest House, just a few steps from the Main Historic home on the property. It is a popular room because of its extra space with the sitting room and extra large bath with a whirlpool tub. Plus, a kitchenette fully stocked. We look forward to your stay; and hope to see these guests again too! Thank you for the review past guest!

Wonderful place to stay while attending a Teacher's Conference in Viroqua

5 on July 22, 2017

I was in Viroqua attending a teacher's conference. The days were long and I returned each evening at about 9:30 to a wonderful, comfortable, exquisitely appointed room. Such a treat. Breakfasts to start my day were gourmet in my estimation. Mike and Marie are so thoughtful and gracious and went out of their way to make my stay truly enjoyable. I recommend Westby House to any one looking for a pleasant and beautiful place to stay.

Time with friends

5 on July 21, 2017

We stayed here approximately 4 years ago. Liked it then and still like it. Mike and Marie are outstanding hosts. That is why we brought friends with us this time. Marie serves an excellent breakfast. We are looking forward to returning,hopefully sooner than the last time.
