My husband and I decided to bike the Sparta Elroy trail. We chose the Franklin Victorian Bed and Breakfast as our home base. It is a lovely historic home which is well maintained. It was a comfortable room. It was very quiet. Only complaint is minor....no TV. Bring a book and you will enjoy the quiet. Morning breakfast was top...

This was such a beautiful B&B. We were greeted and then given a tour and history of the home. There were little treats for us everywhere. In the room was wine, coffee and cookies outside the room, and sweet little candy dishes placed in the common areas. They had a selection of menus of local restaurants so it made picking...

My husband and I stayed here for an overnight this week. What a delightful experience. We chose to spend the extra $5 and stay in the Master Bedroom Suite. The bed was comfy. There were both wing easy chairs and a small table with chairs to sit in. The electric fireplace added coziness to the room. We enjoyed the massaging...

Wonderful food, comfy bed, quiet and cozy atmosphere. The on-site amenities were great, including strong, hot coffee every morning, and a freshly made bed each day. This would be a great place to stay for any reason!

The Franklin B&B is a great place to stay even for a business trip. It easy to get to and located near a cute downtown and restaurants. The innkeeper was attentive and available and provided me with to-go breakfasts because I had to leave early every morning. I wish I was able to sleep in for one day, but the...

This Victorian B&B was a great place to get away for a quiet and romantic evening. Jenny, the innkeeper showed us all the little amenities and how to contact her if we needed anything else at all. We didn't, she thought of every detail imaginable! We had a wonderful stay and would recommend this B&B!

This was our second year in a row, staying at The Franklin and biking the Elroy-Sparta and other trails. Both are tops! The Inn is clean and comfortable, with high quality everything, from bedding and towels (we bought some towels last year), to toilet paper, amenities, and, not least of all, hospitality. Good WiFi (critical as no ATT cell service),...

We have been to the B&B before. The fact that we're return guests speaks to our satisfaction with the accommodations. Jennifer is a gracious host! She shuttled us to the bike trail, and due to significant weather came to get us to only a short time later to shuttle us back. There isn't a detail missing in her home, which...
