Why Rebecca Pope chose Lake City
The Historic Stockholm Hotel was established in 1914 in the heart of the small town of Stockholm, Wisconsin. In 1851 Swedish adventurer Erik Petterson decided that the area of Stockholm, Wisconsin overlooking Lake Pepin would be the ideal site for a settlement. He purchased the land and persuaded other Swedish immigrants to come and help settle the land. In 1856, Stockholm was officially born.In 1886 the railroad connected the village to farms and commercial centers up and down the river. In 1914, the Historic Stockholm Hotel was established as a place for newly arrived immigrants and visiting guests to stay. The hotel register still exists and can be viewed when staying at the hotel. After World War II, the flight to the cities and loss of the railroad station nearly took Stockholm off the map. But the beauty and tranquility of the land was not lost on a new generation of visitors. Starting in the 1970’s, artists and urban outsiders began to trickle into the village and surrounding countryside, reviving old storefronts and homes and creating a vibrant cultural life. The Historic Stockholm Hotel has been restored into a charming home and is still around to provide visitors with a memorable and relaxing retreat.

The family gathering place
Our family loves to spend a long summer weekend away with all of us together in one place. This old "hotel" fit our needs perfectly. Grandpa & Grandma stayed downstairs while our three married children with 8 grandchildren stayed upstairs. The cousins loved the suite with the bunkbeds and double bed just for them. The stairway was quite steep and thankfully the upstairs was well airconditioned. The front of the hotel faced the street while the green grass filled backyard was the place to sit by an evening fire or to enjoy family meals together. We all fit around the picnic tables. We also used this place to have family pictures taken.
It was a peaceful place except when the trains rumbled through town as they did quite frequently.
Rebecca was available to answer questions for us both before our trip and during our stay.
property owner absolutely tops!! Loved her. Property clean, but a bit wonky.
Rebecca and the town's people are the kindest and friendliest you'd ever care to meet. So it is hard to admit that the property is less then expected. The floors are slanted, one nice shower, and little oddities. It is charming and quarky all at the same time. If you're okay with that then go for it. I'm glad we did.
Thanks, Shelley and her family for choosing us in little Stockholm WI
This building was created by a German immigrant who came up the river in 1850's as a young man from St Louis. He must have fallen in love with the area or Elizabeth from Pepin WI. He eventually settled on the hotel site with his new wife in the early 1860's and soon was making BRICKS. He built the first half of the hotel where the dining room is, we think, in the mid 1860's. His name is Christian Godfrey BRUCHMAN, which in German seems to refer to a brick maker.
His dream was to help push the TRAINS up through Wisconsin.
He then Built the second part of the building and connected them in the mid 1870's when he was in his 60's.
They had 9 children and none of them were lost in child hood, so there is much happiness in the building!
Elizabeth had a restaurant all her adult life in the dining room of the hotel, family style.
AND the trains did finally arrive in 1883. Christian passed in 1889. BUT . . .
Another dream of his was to have a hotel for the travelers that were now getting off the train practically at his door step, and which divided his house from the lake. Since he had 6 bedrooms upstairs that he created by uniting these two structures, he felt it would fit perfectly. Except the union was uneven and two foundations sagged at different levels.
Yes, the floors slant and there are humorous shapes to the doors which are original to the building. It is old!
We have worked on the NORTH side & lifted the structure 3 in. Unfortunately it is not the hilton, it is a restored and quaint building that housed the dreams of a man & woman so long ago!
We gently maintain it and accept its antiquity with joy.
Now for the rest of the story. His son, Fredrick opened the hotel from 1914-1916, just 100 years ago! All dreams had come true!
The entire West coast of Wisconsin is amazingly picturesque w/ the river flowing wide at Pepin which becomes Lake Pepin for some of the most beautiful days in Mark Twain's life and ours! Join us!
Oh, and Shelley and her family accepted the "Trivia village hunt" I put out to them . . . "Find the gravestone of the founding father of the village" . . .and they did! Ask them what the prize was! (hint . . . there is a cow on the label and Wisconsin loves it ?)
Again, we are honored with every guest that arrives and strive to make them feel welcome!
The little hotel winked at me for years & I finally bought her and made her SHINE again!
Very nice clean and well maintained property...

Great Place for Team Building
We brought our girls track team and had a wonderful time playing games and cooking / eating together. The girls had the upstairs bedrooms and bathroom as their "dormitory" and the coaches had the downstairs bedroom and bathroom. It worked perfectly. Great hills to run and park to workout in. We took the hike to Maiden Rock. Beautiful view of the water and many eagles We needed butter and the pie shop owner was more than happy to sell us some from his stock and Colleen, the owner/baker at Bogus Creek Café and Bakery, was so accommodating to make sandwiches and a bag lunch for our team. Such kind and helpful people. We truly felt like they were glad we were here! Great place to stay!
Charming historical hotel for family reunion.
The mid 1800's Stockholm Historical Hotel was a perfect spot for a family reunion of 10. Rebecca greeted us at the door with excitement ready to share what the hotel, the town of Stockholm and surrounding area has to offer. Each couple had their own room with shared two bathrooms with no problems. The family enjoyed the large dining room to gather for meals and the fully equipped kitchen to make shared meals. The porch was a nice feature to relax and face the Lake Pepin and the Great River Road. The fire pit and the patio was also enjoyed and a great place for family fun and laughter in the evening. The family toured Stockholm on foot and bicycles. They enjoyed it's cute little shops. Each offering their own artistic specialties from homemade pie, Amish furniture, pottery, Scandinavian gifts, and many local craftspeople items. Rebecca also picked the perfect family for a trivia challenge to find Erik Peterson, the founding father of Stockholm, gravestone for a prize. A competitive and game enthusiastic family that we are read historical facts and talked to the natives to win this challenge and won with great pride. We also enjoyed the surrounding area, hiking Maiden Rock Bluff, complimentary wine/beer tasting at Maiden Rock Vineyard, boardwalk in Pepin, Creamery at Nelson, lift bridge in Alma, paddle boat ride on Lake Pepin offered in Lake City, and craft beer tasting in Wabasha. Rebecca is a fun energetic hostess who provided great customer service and was also available to take a family picture on the historical porch of the hotel for great memories to share and last a life time. We would recommend any vacationer to stay at the Historical Stockholm Hotel.
The Historic Stockholm Hotel was perfect for our group of 11.
The Historic Stockholm Hotel was a great location for our motorcycle trip up and down the Great River Road. Our group enjoyed the outdoor patio with grilling for dinners and visiting the local watering hole at Lena's. We would highly recommend staying here.
We are in love with the West Coast of Wisconsin and suggest you visit the website of the village of Stockholm to find out why! Just the scenery alone is magnificent and the river shows her face everyday with a different look and personality! It is a bohemian community with lovely, creative and low key people making up the kaleidoscope of humanity along with the wonderful hills and hikes, soil and trees, animals and farms. The Village of Stockholm may be small, quaint and charming beyond words...but there is so much more hidden behind that small village exterior. Escape down the winding Great River Road to the village tucked along the shores of the mighty Mississippi. Peek in and become part of one of the most vibrant and growing cultural scenes around. There is nothing small about the experience you will have in Stockholm Wisconsin. Come see how big Stockholm really is...
