Westby House Inn
Eagles soar over the Mississippi River from DeSoto Wisconsin to La Crosse Wisconsin along the Great River Road Byway. The Westby House Inn is only 23 minutes East of the River where you can encounter more birding and wildlife along the way. The biggest birding attraction is the fall migration stop of the Tundra Swans in late October/November. Tundra swans rest on Pools 4-11 during the fall migration, moving through just before ice forms on the river. More arrive daily, building up to their peak population during the month of November. By all means swing over to the overlooks along Hwy 26 just south of Brownsville, Minnesota, or south of Goose Island on the Wisconsin shore. Only a 30 to 45 minute drive from the inn.
