                                So glad we decided to opt for this wonderful cottage instead of a condo or hotel room for our stay in Lake City to celebrate our anniversary!! It was much more cozy and private! The minute we walked in, it felt like we belonged! Beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable! The yard was beautiful, lake views fantastic and everything was as described in the listing! Loved that we could go walking on the lakewalk across the road everyday. You can actually walk or ride bike to most everywhere in Lake City. Chickadees and the DQ were 2 favorites! We chose it also because of the central location to Red Wing and Wabasha. There is lots to do on the Wisconsin side also. It is also a great place to just relax. My Chiropractor even commented on how relaxed I was when we got back! 4 nights was not enough! Wish we had planned to stay longer. So we will definitely plan a return trip in the future! Thanks, Barb and Larry! Even though we didn't meet you personally, you were the most gracious hosts!!

                                Barb, Thanks again so much for such a beautiful home for us to relax in on our get away! It was so clean, cozy, and had the most beautiful views! We enjoyed sitting in the gazebo, although a bit chilly in April in Minnesota. We hope to stay again and will be recommending your place to our family and friends! Thank you, LeAnne and Jason

                                My family and I stayed at Bluffview cottage in late April coming up from Arizona. The house was very clean, comfortable and welcoming. The views are spectacular from the inside of the house and as well as the yard. We enjoyed sitting and visiting in the gazebo. Hope to make it back soon. Thank you Barb and Larry being so accomodating to us and sharing your lovely vacation home with us. John & Cherie

                                Barb, We (myself and 3 girlfriends) felt at home the minute we walked in the door. It was so warm and inviting. Every area was tastefully decorated. You do have the "touch". I cannot described how cozy and comfortabe your place felt to all of us. It was so clean too! We had a great relaxing time, everything we needed was there for us. Those big picture windows and the view of the lake was awesome. We did not want to leave (did you find Linda under the bed?) She just fell in love with the place and we had to drag her out!! We would certainly like to come back again sometime. Thanks for sharing your home with us. Mary L.

                                Hello Barbara, I just had to tell you how much I enjoyed your house there and how perfect your place is to have a get together with loved ones! We had the best time and our surroundings were "just right" for the occasion. The view of the lake is wonderful, the house has so much charm and neat atmosphere, and it was all so clean and perfectly furnished and welcoming! I got to use the bedroom closest to the bathroom on the first floor and it was so cute and pretty! But all the bedrooms were so nice and so pleasing to the eye. As were all the rooms. I also loved the sunporch and the huge livingroom and all your flowers and the gazebo! I could have cheerfully stayed there for the entire summer! It was so much fun seeing my sister, niece and our cousins in such a comfortable, attractive surroundings. We talked and laughed walked by the lake and ate out a lot and shopped the nifty stores and watched 2 of your videos and just had a great time in general. I am so grateful to my sister for finding your place and to you for providing it for us! You can bet you'll have lots of word of mouth advertising and recommendations from all of us! Thanks a million! Sincerely, Sheryl B.

                                We had four adult women there for a girls retreat. Barb helped us accommodate my grandmother who is 86. The kitchen has everything you need, even a blender and rice cooker! Barb also called me the day of arrival to ensure I knew it was a very windy day and with instructions on this and that to make everything a breeze. Our stay at this house was amazing. The view of the lake was awesome. There are walking trails right across the street that take you into town and a park with hiking near the house -- we walked to coffee, dinner and cute local shops. Nice place with great touches..... I'd recommend a stay in the area and at this house.

                                Myself and three of my BFF's stayed here for a girls weekend! It was the perfect spot! The house was cozy, and had an amazingly well stocked kitchen! Everything from martini and wine glasses (a must on a girls weekend) to a crock pot, blender and all the kitchen utensils in between! We were able to bring in a whole fridge of food (really - how much food do four women really need???) - and only went out once - to Bronk's - for a yummy night out! It was close enough to downtown, that we were able to walk there and back, so we could all enjoy a cocktail, with out having to worry about someone driving! We are hoping to go back in the spring or fall, so that we can enjoy the view of the lake, the gazebo and the outdoor fire pit! My only recommendation - make sure that the youth snowmobile races aren't happening on the lake the weekend you go - makes for a less then peaceful wake up in the morning, or afternoon nap even, since they go ALL day... I would also consider this, instead of a B&B for a trip with my husband - since it is much less expensive, and you have the whole house to yourself! Thanks for the great weekend Barb!

                                I arranged a week-end vacation for 4 adult brothers and myself in this clean, quiet little community in southern Minnesota. We were all impressed with the amenities of this cottage and how well the house and grounds were maintained.The gazebo was especially appreciated. We were a walk or short drive from the marina, park, restaurants, and grocery store. A most enjoyable time.

                                What a beautiful area! Bluff cottage was clean, well kept and had every thing you needed except for food and clothing! We enjoyed sitting in the gazebo having a few cocktails after a day of motorcyling. We will again return to visit this wonderful area.

                              Why the Owner Chose Lake City:
                              After visiting and staying in Lake City several times we decided to purchase a home here. We find after visiting other areas of the country we cannot wait to get back to Lake city because of its absolute beauty and in our opinion one of the most beautiful in the world.
