          Location

          Located in the beautiful bluff area of southeastern Minnesota and perched on the west side of Lake Pepin, Lake City is a wonderful get away spot summer and winter. Quaint shops, lovely driving routes and hiking trails. Bicycle rides take you through breathtaking vistas and up challenging hills if you are up to the workout. Fish Lake Pepin from the shore, or golf away your afternoon. Antique stores beckon you to browse, looking for a treasure. Take a short drive to Red Wing to investigate the historic town and its offerings or go south abit to Wabasha to visit the National Eagle center. Of course, you can spend your time simply relaxing - walking the beach or watching the sailboats - the choice is yours!

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2013

          About the owner: Semi-retired and currently owner/operators of The Sterling, a bed and breakfast in Lake City. Many guests have indicated they would love to come back to Lake City and bring their family, girlfriends, buddies, etc so starting another venture with a vacation rental seemed like a great idea. We love people and this fabulous part of southeast Minnesota with all its beauty. We do our best to make everyone feel at home and appreciated at our B & B and now we can expand that to include a darling vacation rental for larger groups. River towns have such appeal! Leaving the corporate life to start a new project in Lake City drew us here three years ago. We love it here and know you will too once you have stayed.

          Why the Owner Chose Lake City:
          This vacation rental house has such curb appeal with its charming front porch with wicker seating. We have added a wonderful, large deck on the back of the house which is perfect for enjoying the shade on a warm summer day. It is a super location with only a block walk to the park on the Lake. It is also close to downtown and all that it offers our guests. The house is a nice size - not too big and not too small. I guess you could say it is 'just right'. The outside view fools you into thinking it is on the small size but once inside, people often comment how much room there is. It is a house where it is easy to 'settle in' and feel at ease quickly.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Older homes have a charm and personality all their own. Combine that with modern amenities and you have the best of both worlds! A trip to 'grandma's house' where you can still use your computer, watch DVD movies, pop popcorn in a microwave, put your dirty dishes in a dishwasher and have a shower with lots of hot water while still having access to many sport opportunities and tourist activities.
