Wabasha house description

Park your car and relax at the 113 year old 'Lund River House' set right on the bank of the Mississippi River in this historic river town. Walk or bike anywhere you need to go; coffee shops, restaurants, wine bars, unique shops, day spas, antique stores, marinas, groceries, beach, parks, etc.

Enjoy your morning cup of coffee while watching the sunrise over the river from the screen porch with its panoramic view of the river and the interstate bridge. Or share a campfire with friends and family right on the shore of the river. Fishing for walleyes, sauger, smallmouth bass,white bass, and catfish is excellent right from our shoreline. Boaters and canoeists can pull their watercraft right up on the beach for the day.

This is a great setting for a girls' weekend. Relax with good friends as you enjoy the many local venues located throughout the river valley, including Art Tours, the Great River Shakespeare Festival, and the Stolkholm Art Fair. Or enjoy a day at the spa. This is also a great spot for a guys fishing/golfing outing with five golf courses within a 20 minute drive and excellent fishing at your doorstep. Try your hand at trout fishing in the many pristine streams in Wabasha County just a short drive into the bluff country.

If you want a winter get-away, plan a weekend of ice fishing on the backwaters, downhill skiing or snowboarding at Coffee Mill ski area, or try cross country skiing at one of the near-by parks. Or you might want to simply relax at one of the wine bars in town or treat yourself to dinner at one of the many restaurants in Wabasha or in one of the neighboring river towns.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: Jon and Nancy Dahlin live in Apple Valley, MN with their 17 year old nephew, Gavin and their Black Lab, Fila. They have 3 adult children and a daughter-in-law who also enjoy spending time on the river. And, they became new grandparents last year to a baby boy! Jon and Nancy have been boating on the Mississippi River for over 30 years from the Twin Cities to Lansing, IA. When the property became available in Wabasha they knew that this community had everything they wanted and needed for an ideal vacation spot.

                      Why the Owner Chose Wabasha:
                      Everything we like to do such as boating, kayaking, fishing, golfing, biking, hiking, swimming, and winter skiing is right here and it is just a 1 1/2 hr. hassle-free drive from the Twin Cities.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Total relaxation in a stress free environment.
