Franklin Victorian Bed & Breakfast


Directions & Map


north, south, east & west...

Our lodging accommodations are located less than 30 miles from La Crosse, Wisconsin, making us a great alternative to area hotels.  Just two hours from Madison, staying at Franklin Victorian Bed & Breakfast lets you get away from the big city atmosphere, without being too far away!  Our inn is also just 64 miles from Wisconsin Dells, an easy trip to visit the Waterpark Capitol of the World and to see the amazing sandstone formations and wooded gullies there.

Please remember that check-in 3 P.M.- 8 P.M.  Running late?  A courtesy call while you are en route will be greatly appreciated.
