Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Frontenac:
This location in Old Frontenac is the most peaceful place we know of. It is located right on the beach with wonderful views of the Mississippi and a nice beach. We enjoy building fires in the evening and just enjoying the scenery. Fall and spring are wonderful seasons with lots of wildlife in view and the colors of the leaves changing are breathtaking in the fall. Summer is wonderful with quiet nights and gentle breezes.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We enjoy the peace and quiet that this location offers. I love cooking on the grill overlooking the water. Our children enjoy the water and all the amenities it offers - with boating, canoeing etc being fun for them. We like to walk and Old Frontenac is great for walking an biking. The wildlife is amazing with bald eagles being daily visitors and deer and waterfowl abounding in the neighborhood. This is the only rental we are aware of on Lake Pepin with direct access to the lake - no roads etc between the cabin and the lake! Late at night we enjoy playing board games on the large table with the family and guests. The table actually seats 8 if friends show up for the day!
