WESTBY HOUSE INN

& Gathering Place
decorative branch graphic

Welcome to the Westby House Inn Bed and Breakfast, where history, comfort, and hospitality come together.

Just outside of La Crosse, in the southwest driftless region, you will find Westby Wisconsin. Westby is a town rich with Norwegian heritage, including its annual Syttende Mai Festival. With its hills and valleys reminiscent of Norway, our area of the driftless region offers a little something for everybody. Whether you enjoy hiking, biking, canoeing down a river, or fly fishing, you will find it here. Perhaps you would rather spend your day shopping for antiques or taking a beautiful country drive through the largest Amish settlement in Wisconsin? Plan a visit to the famous Guadalupe Shrine or the beautiful Norskedalen Nature and Heritage Center. No matter what your interests are, we think you will fall in love with Westby and the surrounding area.

The Westby House Inn and gathering place is located in the heart of Westby. Our property offers the original Victorian home built in the 1800s as well as a Guest House and a Guest Lodge. The Westby House, unlike a traditional Bed and Breakfast, offers guests two different lodging choices. The Victorian home offers our guests the traditional bed and breakfast experience while our Guest House and Guest Lodge are designed to cater to an independent stay, comparable to an Airbnb experience. Whether you are searching for a romantic getaway or are looking to take advantage of the many things to do here in Westby and the surrounding area, we have an experience designed just for you.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

THE MAIN HOME

Luxury Accommodations

The traditional bed-and-breakfast experience is offered to our guests staying in our 1891 beautiful Victorian mansion. Traditional in its decor, including fine antiques, original woodwork, romantic wallpaper, and an inviting fireplace, our home offers guests a cozy, welcoming atmosphere. We have created plenty of common space, including areas to rest, relax and feel quietly at home. The mansion provides a choice of five elegant private rooms which are all accessed by the stunning staircase original to the build of the mansion. The Tower Room, the Westby Room, the Library Room, the Garden Room, and the Rose Room are elegantly appointed, each with its own unique style. Every room has cable TV, a private bath, luxurious linens, warm fuzzy robes, and slippers for you to use during your stay.

While staying with us, we hope you savor some special amenities like picking out a perfect book to read by the fire or working on a puzzle out on the patio while sipping wine from our perfectly stocked cellar. Wi-Fi is accessible throughout the property. For rainy or lazy days, we have playing cards, board games, word searches, and even markers and doodle pads for our guests that are feeling creative. When the weather permits, we offer our guests breakfast and mimosas out on the patio; afternoon tea with scones on the porch; or evening s'mores by a fire with Baileys to make your stay all the more enjoyable!

Independent Stays

Guests to our property can choose independent rooms that are outside the bed and breakfast mansion. These rooms are perfect for family or group travelers, our guests who are looking for that extra element of privacy, or those who are concerned with social distancing. These rooms are also great for our guests on the go that don't want to adhere to a specific schedule or those who are looking for a long-term stay. One of our independent rooms includes a hot tub and another has a full kitchen. They all have kitchenettes, a microwave, a refrigerator, and a personal coffee maker.

Regardless of which lodging experience is best for you, you have a choice at the Westby House Inn, where the focus is on romance, adventure, and relaxation, and our goal is always to exceed your expectations!

Breakfast is our favorite time of the day. As a husband-and-wife team, we love entertaining. We’ve spent years cooking together in our private home for our family and our friends. Now, as innkeepers, we enjoy cooking for our guests.

We share meals that are family favorites and special traditions, such as our famous breakfast pizza. We take pride in using fresh, local, and organic ingredients whenever possible. Our menu is changed seasonally to create culinary experiences that complement each season.
