                          The peaceful riverside location is perfect for fishing, boating, canoeing, swimming, Eagle watching, or just relaxing. The area's natural beauty makes it a great place to bike, hike, golf, cross-country ski or take a scenic drive beneath towering bluffs, through picturesque valleys. Visit historic riverside towns with their quaint shops, restaurants, and wineries or watch barges as they navigate through the locks and dams of the Mighty Mississippi River.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2004

                          About the owner: My husband and I live in the Twin Cities and own a small custom home, remodel and design company for the past 30 years. We enjoy traveling, fishing, boating, gardening, and anything that has to do with 'creating' something.

                          Why the Owner Chose Lake Pepin:
                          We fell in love with the area upon our first visit there, which was due to a job transfer in1974. We thought that we had died and gone to heaven as the rolling hills and bluffs were just so beautiful. We also fell in love with the Mississippi River and officially became 'river rats' or ones who can't get enough of the river, love the fact that it is ever changing, ever powerful, always beautiful, abundant with wildlife, and there are always fish to be caught in it! At that time we said that we would love to retire in the area someday. As 'someday' started getting closer, we started looking in the area for a vacation home that could eventually become our retirement home. It took some time, but we finally found it! The fact that the home was pretty bland looking inside, at that time, just make it more exciting for us as we knew that we would be able to turn it into something beautiful.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          You can't help but be mesmerized by the views, whether from the front yard, back yard, deck, patio, dock or the house. The Mississippi River and surrounding bluffs are beautiful and the home is a warm and inviting place in which to enjoy it all. There is nothing better than starting the morning with a cup of coffee on the deck or dock and listening to the birds sing.
