We are pleased to announce The Lark Inn, now under new ownership, but still family!

The Helgerson's

Kenny, Katelyn, Emery & Ari

Kenny and Katelyn Helgerson purchased the Lark Inn in June of 2016.  It is their goal to keep this cozy motel a family friendly place for all.

The Helgerson’s plan on keeping the long time traditions going for the Lark Inn and add some new ones!  They have remodeled the lobby to give it a much more friendly and inviting space for their guests.  There is now a fireplace and more tables so guests have a place to relax, grab a morning bite to eat at the continental breakfast and maybe watch TV on a comfy couch while they wait to meet up with friends.

Family has always been important for this couple as Kenny grew up with 5 siblings and lots of aunts, uncles and cousins in the La Crosse-West Salem area.  Katelyn is a hometown girl from Tomah and is very close to her brother and parents.  They are a busy young couple who enjoy time with their son’s Emery and Ari, going to tractor pulls, riding their motorcycle, and playing with their 3 dogs.

It’s always family first and it’s always work hard for this young couple! Come say hello and meet the Helgerson’s!

OUR AWARD WINNING SEASONAL DECORATIONS AND SPECIAL EVENTS can enrich time spent at the LARK INN, whether for a day or a week. Wake up to a quiet breakfast in our newly remodeled lobby and remember we carry the essentials for leisure or business travelers and for couples, families or groups.

WE WELCOME INQUIRIES for group discounts and offer special receptions for tour groups. Special discounts are also offered to AAA members, AARP, military, corporate, and government.


LARK INN is nestled in the heart of TOMAH, WISCONSIN, just an easy stroll from shopping and fine supper clubs. The area offers a wide range of interesting things to discover.

Visit us during the winter holidays, when outstanding decorations transform the LARK INN into a glistening winter wonderland. Thousands of tiny lights reflect the warmth and charm of the Inn, complete with sleighs and reindeer, several beautifully decorated trees, country porches wrapped with lighted garland, bright red bows trimming white lanterns and festive hanging poinsettia baskets.

Join our guests, who return year after year, to enjoy warm holiday hospitality.

LARK INN makes a perfect “home base” for any type of activity or just “plain ol’ relaxing”.
