                                We were a group of three moms and three babies (under 1). We had a great time in this lovely home. The location is perfect. It is one house down from the street, directly across from the water. The park is just two blocks away. Amazing sunrises! Loved: The kitchen, location, and upstairs bedrooms. The kitchen was fully stocked with all necessary equipment. There were even napkins on the table. Plenty of room for all of us, meal prep, and space to eat. The only thing missing for us was dish soap, which someone had brought anyway. Upstairs bedrooms are huge. Due to the third bedroom situation (see below), we had two adults and two pack-n-plays set up in one bedroom and there was still room to move. Minor downfalls: The third bedroom and the noise. The third bedroom, as noted, is in the basement. It seems comfortable enough, but packed into a small space. The exercise equipment is at the foot of the bed. Please note parents of young babies- there is no door for this "bedroom" so the stairs are right next to the bed. It is also basement, the floor is cement. For these reasons (and a bit of the spooky factor) we did not use this "bedroom". I don't see any of this being a problem for a teenager or adult. The only other note also applies only to parents of babies. This is an old home and therefore has old home noises. With three babies sleeping upstairs it was a game to see which one would wake up when having to go up/down creaky steps to attend to another one. The home is adorable and very comfortable. There are books, magazines, internet, television, and plenty of space so even in poor weather you wouldn't be lacking in things to do. In good weather, the location is fantastic. Walk to anything in town, even with a stroller. The moral of the story is that we had a great time and would absolutely love to stay here again!

                                We stayed here for a weekend fishing trip, and the house was perfect for our group. Greg was very accommodating with our needs and was quick to respond to questions prior to booking. If the fishing had been half as good as the rental experience, it would have been a perfect trip! Thanks Greg!!!

                                Owner response: Thank you for the kind words. We try not to bother people but want to make sure they know they can contact us if there is anything they need. Hope you can make it back when the fish are biting. Spring and Fall is best for fishing on Lake Pepin. We are starting to see it pick up a little right now. Some rain would help raise the level of the river also. Come back and stay again!

                                We had a great relaxing time at this beautiful home! My wife had some Mayo appointments, and we brought our 13 and 15 year old with us on a mini vacation. The view is beautiful from the house and the house is very cozy. We just used the two bedrooms upstairs, which were wonderful with the jacuzzi tubs. The location of the house is great! Their is a pier for fishing within walking distance. It is close to Red Wing, Rochester, Wabasha, and Pepin, WI (the birthplace of Laura Ingles Wilder). Greg is a great host and went the extra mile to make our stay comfortable.

                                Came up to lake city and stayed at this house. Was a cold week and this place kept us southerners nice and warm. The fire places in the bed room most certainly a plus a plus when the temps go down in this neck of the woods.Downtown and lake are close where both good food and pleasant people can be found. Thanks Greg for a pleasant stay. Wife and I had a great time. Will call upon you again when we get up that way.

                                We had a wonderful time. The house was great. Had everything we needed. I would recomend this house to anyone. We entertained our friends and thier family and had plenty of room. Our hosts were great and helped out with our needs. Only one thing I would add in the kitchen would be a hand held mixer.

                                Overall our stay here was fair. It was extremely difficult having 3 couples sleep comfortably. The basement bed is a full and set in the unfinished basement, especially when the other bedrooms are so great with jet tubs!. Another frustrating thing was there not being a main level bath, so our 7th member (who slept on the couch) would have to wake someone up in order to go to the bathroom. It would be safe to say this house doesn't comfortably sleep 6-7. Sleeping 4-5 would be a better estimate. We loved the distance to the water, and to be able to sit on the upper deck/front yard and enjoy the view. It was also a good location for walking to the store and other downtown shops. The owner was extremely helpful and easy to communicate with before and during our trip.

                                Owner response: I will post a picture of the third bedroom so folks can see that is in a finished basement and has a very nice ceramic tiled bathroom. Each bedroom has it own bathroom so if you plan to have guests sleeping outside the bedrooms, they will need to enter a bedroom to use a bathroom. Six adults plus children is a better arrangement for this house.

                                My wife and I, along with another couple, came down to lake city and stayed for a long weekend. The house had everything that we needed and was a great location for golf, shopping downtown, and exploring the area (including wabasha, pepin WI, and Stockholm, WI). The owners were extremely generous and gracious with us. They were also very easy to work with. We had a fantastic time and we look forward to visiting again in the future. We would highly recommend this house to any others visiting the area!

                                Recommended for: Girls getaway, families with young children, tourists without a car, families with teenagers, sightseeing, age 55+, romantic getaway.

                                Owner response: Thank you very much for the nice review. We enjoyed having you and hope you visit again soon. Greg and Deb.

                                Charming but spacious home with great views of Lake Pepin. Comfortable bedrooms and living areas. Close to main area of Lake City so exploring its delightful antique stores and lakefront is an easy walk. Had the opportunity to play golf and found a "Jewel" of a golf course as well as a "jewel" of a place to stay. Only wish we could have stayed longer. Kathy and Rob

                              About the owner: Besides having several rental properties in Lake City and Frontenac, we have two antique stores in Lake City. Ask us for recommendations as to where to shop, eat and play! 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.

                              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, shopping, boating, golfing, biking, etc. There are endless thing to do year round.
