Bentley-Wheeler B & B
La Crosse, Wisconsin
in 1859, the Bentley-Wheeler Guest House was the childhood home of
Percy Bentley; well known architect in the La Crosse area. While
he didn't study under Frank Lloyd Wright directly, he worked in close
proximity to him as a student, thus influencing his work in the Prairie
As construction of the larger house began in 1883, Percy and his family lived in, what we now refer to as the Guest House,
as they waited for their new home to be finished. After several
years of construction, the Bentley family sold the property to J.E.
Wheeler (prominent banker and owner of Novelty Woodworks) who completed
the project. Wheeler's family also lived in the Guest House as construction was completed.
The Guest House
is complete with 4 (four)
bedrooms, living room with a fireplace, large dining room,
full kitchen, 2 bathrooms (one with a jacuzzi) and even
laundry facilities. The guest house can serve long or short
term needs. Whether you have two people in your party, or
eight...you have the entire guest house to yourself; we do not add
other groups to the guest house beyond the original booking.
