La Crosse house description

Located in the beautiful river valley of La Crosse, Wisconsin and nestled at the foot of the bluffs, in a quiet residential neighborhood, the historic Bluff View House is one of approximately 2,498 Lustron homes built in 1949 and 1950. These homes were made out of 12 ton of steel and approximately 3000 pieces. No wood, drywall or shingles were used. The house is ALL STEEL. A unique lodging experience!

This Lustron is #1752 and has been well cared for over the years. Guests will enjoy just the right amount of modern mixed with this authentic historic home. Catch up on the history of the house watching the dvd 'Lustron: The House America's Been Waiting For' or read the book 'Lustron Homes: The History of a Postwar Prefabricated Housing Experiment.'

Go for a bike ride on one of the 8 complimentary bicycles located in the garage. Relax in the screen porch while bird watching.

Walking distance to the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, Myrick Hixon EcoPark, Kids Coulee and Forest Hills Golf Course & Restaurant. Just 2 miles to historic downtown, Riverside Park and the Mississippi River. Enjoy a Riverboat cruise or visit the Children's Museum, City Brewery or Rotary Lights.

A short drive to see the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe, snowmobile trails, skiing, 12 golf courses, bicycle trails and much more. Perfect lodging for a vacation, family gatherings, business travel, fishing tournaments, weekend get aways or while visiting one of the three campuses.

Unique, Comfortable and Affordable Lodging.

                                First time renting a house for a weekend getaway and it was a nice experience. Clean, well-kept, owner nearby, all the amenities of home. Great location to downtown and the bluffs. Nice neighborhood. Only drawback was the inconsistent wi-fi connection. Would recommend to friends and relatives.

                                Recommended for: Girls getaway.

                                Owner response: WiFi has been upgraded from 10 mg to 30 mg and a new router installed. No issues since these changes.

                                We stayed in this home in Aug. 2010 and LOVED it! My #1 favorite was being so close to the Kid's Coulee playground since we had our 2 children with us. We walked there daily for the kids to burn off steam. Since the house is made of steel the owner has placed magnetic words on the walls for renters to play with, which my 6yr. old loved doing by himself and with us. The owner also had a lovely vegetable garden and we were told to help ourselves. I would highly recommend this home to anyone and would definately stay there again.

                                Recommended for: Families with young children, age 55+, romantic getaway, girls getaway, sightseeing.

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2006

                              About the owner: I grew up in Northwest Iowa and moved to La Crosse in 1996. Have lived in this neighborhood the entire time. Started Do4U Home & Garden Services in 1996. Opened Bluff View House in 2006, and in 2008, turned my long term rental into a short term rental (The Cottage). The Bluff View House is across the street from me and The Cottage is next door.

                              Why the Owner Chose La Crosse:
                              This is a GREAT neighborhood! It's less than a block to Kids Coulee in Myrick Park, Myrick/Hixon Eco Park and a 10 minute walk to Hixon Forest. Forest Hills Golf Course is only 4 blocks away and the University of WI-La Crosse is 2 blocks away. A quiet residential neighborhood.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              The Bluff View House is so unique! It is called a Lustron House and was made out of 100% steel...no drywall or wood. Only 2498 built after WWII. Many of the the remaining Lustron homes are listed on the National Register.
