Westby condo description
Logan Mill Lodge is the result of a renovation project that was the vision of agricultural history preservationist, railroad enthusiast, and entrepreneur Ruth Gerber Rupp. This historic building, historically known as the 'Ben Logan Mill', was first constructed in 1905(grain elevator only initially) with additions to the property in 1910 and 1940. It was used as a feed/seed storage warehouse and a feed grinding mill for Westby area farmers until it went out of business in the late 1970's. Two railroad companies provided service to the mill...the Milwaukee Road ran on the east side of the mill and the LaCrosse and Southeastern Railroad ran on the west side of the mill.
This 7000 sq.ft property sat empty for several years until May 1999 when Ken and Ruth Rupp purchased the building and started the restoration project which is now almost complete. The Lodge includes three large condo units as described below. Most groups of friends/family members who rent Logan Mill Lodge are large enough that they need to rent the entire lodge, but if your group is smaller, you may chose to rent just one of the condo units listed below.
*** Condo #1 (first floor, south end of the lodge). Total sleeping capacity is 8 people. Decor is the retro look of 1940-50's and commemorates the railroad and agricultural history of the building.

*** Condo #2(second floor, south end of lodge). Total sleeping capacity is 8 people. Decor is modern with Scandinavian Design Teakwood furniture.

Ben Logan Lodge, Westby, Wisconsin
Ben Logan Lodge, Westby, Wisconsin
A bunch of us spent a long weekend at the Ben Logan Lodge and we loved it! The weather was a bit uncooperative for motorcycling (cold and very strong winds) but we had so much fun anyway, because of the lodge. I couldn't believe that this cool space was inside this old building. Tons of room, very clean, jacuzzi tubs, comfy beds, and so much personality in each suite. Wireless internet came in really handy, too. We eventually cycled around the area, and it was so beautiful in the hills. Lots and lots of twisty roads, and Amish farms everywhere. Ruth is delightful, and knows so much about the history of the area and the building itself. She gave us lots of tips, and took great care of us. We will be back!
