Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Besides having several rental properties in Lake City and Frontenac, we operate two antique stores in Lake City. Ask us for recommendations as to where to shop, eat and play! We want you to enjoy your stay in Lake City! Deb and Greg

Why the Owner Chose Lake City:
We were looking for a romantic weekend get-a-way place when we lived in Chicago and Lake City/Lake Pepin is one of the most beautiful areas in the country. All seasons are experienced to the fullest. Being on the river offers an ever changing view and experience. Beautiful sunrises start your day in this hearty country. Some of the friendliest folks in the Midwest live in this little town and The Jewel Golf Course offers the very best golf in the Midwest. I was rated the third best course you can play in Minnesota in 2006. It is also very affordable!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You will enjoy a beautiful view of the Mississippi River and Lake Pepin from several windows of the home. The front room with windows on three sides in an excellent room to read and bask in the sun while enjoying the view. Location is ideal for experiencing the lakefront and walking about Lake City. Relax in one of the two Jacuzzis after your day of shopping, boating, golfing, biking, etc. There are endless thing to do year round. Or just stay home and read of the books from our well stocked bookshelf in the house.
