Lake City house description

This home is unique and special in so many ways. It's located just 65 miles southeast of the Twin Cities and 35 miles northeast of Rochester, MN (home to the Mayo Clinic). Lake City is a lovely 'seaside-like' town on Minnesota's South Shore of Lake Pepin.

The address is: 523 Park Street, Lake City, MN 55041 (or 523 N. Washington Street for GPS.).

Its cozy, New England Coastal style is sure to please the most discerning guests. It's a spacious 4 bedroom or cozy 2 bedroom (Lock-Out Configuration) - Comfortably accommodates 2 to 11 people. The home was completely remodeled in early 2010 with all new ceilings, floors, walls, windows, doors, mechanicals, bathrooms and a modern kitchen (stainless steel appliances and solid granite counter tops).

The spacious living room, dining room (with custom made farm table) and kitchen are all open which creates a wonderful Great Room space for entertaining family & friends. Each room throughout the house has a wonderful view of the Lake. There is a 42' HDTV, entertainment center & fireplace. The living room features a large leather sofa, leather chair w/ottoman, game table and unbelievable views of Lake Pepin. The stone patio (w/pergola) in front of the house provides more than 300 sq. ft of luxurious outdoor space and has a beautiful built-in fire pit surrounded by comfortable Adirondack chairs and a covered picnic table porch. The perfect vacation rental place to spend quality time discussing 'whatever' or just taking in the beautiful scenery.

The second bedroom is also very large and has two queen size beds. There are two bedrooms on the second level and a 3/4 bath, one small bedroom with a double bed and a large open area with three twin beds (perfect for children or adults who want their own bed).

The kitchen is complete in every respect and features stainless steel appliances and solid granite counter tops.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: John was born in nearby Rochester and vacationed in Lake City with his parents and siblings in the 50s. Fond memories are etched in his memory from years of enjoying their family's boat house and small Thompson cruiser. John was an executive until his early retirement in 2003 when he and his wife purchased a second home in Lake City. They spent the next four years remodeling and redecorating their new summer home. Sharon was born in Cleveland, OH and spent her middle & early adult years in Florida. She moved to MN in the mid 70s and worked in retail as a buyer (Dayton-Hudson) and as a decorator. They purchased a second property in Lake City in 2008 and made it into their first vacation rental. John & Sharon are enjoying their retirement years remodeling and decorating what they believe constitutes the perfect vacation rental.

                  Why the Owner Chose Lake City:
                  This particular property and its location is extremely unique. The views are some of the best views possible of Lake Pepin. Its proximity to the water and its central location to the Marina, City parks, the RiverWalk and the downtown is unmatched. Because so much of the Mississippi River is inaccessible due to the highways, railroads, parks and rough terrain, Lake City is blessed because of its access to the Lake. This particular property is one of just a few single family homes available for rent that are so close to the water and with an unobstructed view of Lake Pepin.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The house is ideal as a vacation rental as the views from every room are just hard to envision. The layout is perfect for entertaining and enjoying family and friends. There is room for one group or for several smaller groups to enjoy their time together simultaneously, but with privacy when desirable. The fireplace and the bonfire pit present wonderful opportunities for groups to share their stories with family, friends and to pass on folklore to the next generation.
