Why Rebecca Pope chose Wisconsin

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.

Great Place for Team Building

  • 5 of 5

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.

  • 4 of 5

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.

Historic, Clean and Charming....

  • 5 of 5

A group of 11 motorcycle riders booked the Stockholm Hotel for two nights in July. The property is historic and charming. It's clean and very convenient for touring around the Lake Pepin area. We ate in both nights using the outdoor grill(s) and the kitchen.

Stockholm is a picturesque small town on the eastern shores of Lake Pepin. The building itself sits on the Great River Road and is within a quick drive to the other small cities along the Road.

Rebecca is a local entrepreneur and owns the local bar/grill. She’s very proud of her hotel, as well as the town. She’s fun….

A note about motorcycling (and I suppose for the peddlers too), there are great rides within minutes of Stockholm. Two roads exit immediately out of the City and climb the bluff in long winding curves. Frankly, the whole area does not disappoint for the cyclist crowd. Enjoy…

The Historic Stockholm Hotel was perfect for our group of 11.

  • 4 of 5

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...
