Lake City house description

The address of this home is: 721 N. Lakeshore Drive, Lake City, MN 55041

This is a large two story home built in the 1920s (2,600 Sq. ft.) and is as 'Dramatic' as its views of Lake Pepin. A complete remodel of this charming home was completed in the Spring of 2014. It now has all the charm and character (Coastal & Nautical) of our other vacation home rentals in Lake City. A new kitchen with stainless steel appliances, solid granite counter tops and a wonderful laundry/pantry just off the back of the kitchen. There is also a very unique Cafe area, a large family room and a lovely 3 season porch toward the back of the house. Two (2) newly remodeled full bathrooms with ceramic tile throughout, four (4) bedrooms (5 bedrooms when the beautiful barn door is pulled to convert the living room into a fifth bedroom). The living room is quite spacious and has lots of seating, an electric fireplace, a queen size leather sofa-bed and 'dramatic' views of Lake Pepin.

The home has four (4) HDTVs, 2 BlueRay DVDs, cable and wireless internet.

Option #1 Sleeps up to 12:
The main floor has a large living room with a wonderful bow window & window seat offering 'dramatic views' of Lake Pepin. There is a queen leather sofa bed and lots of additional seating, plus a large flat screen TV and an electric fireplace. The large dining room is furnished with a custom made farmhouse table that comfortably seats 12 and also offers magnificent views of Lake Pepin and the Wisconsin bluffs across the way. There is a first floor bedroom with a king-sized bed. The remodeled kitchen features granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and a unique Café space off the kitchen with a pass thru counter between the Café and the kitchen. The Café features a counter high gathering table that seats 4. It's a great space for coffee, dining, games, cocktails and, of course, just hanging out. A large laundry room/pantry is just off the kitchen and has great additional storage for all those vacation goodies everyone brings on vacation.

Off the Café toward the rear of the home is a second large living space or 'family room' that features another large flat screen TV, lots of seating and a beamed ceiling. The family room also has a dramatic view of Lake Pepin with a second wonderful bow widow seat. Just off the family room is a very comfortable three season porch and off the other side of the family room is an attached, spacious two car garage. The large first floor bathroom has an over sized walk-in shower. Off the family room and kitchen is a nicely protected, large outside stone patio with a European style pergola (summer of 2015), a fire pit, a stone wall, a pedestal lamp and lots of outside seating, plus a gas Weber grill. This arrangement offers the perfect outdoor setting to relax, relive the fun day and to enjoy Family, Friends, and the Dramatic Views of Lake Pepin all over again.

The second floor has Three (3) Additional Bedrooms - Bdrm #1 - A lovely room with a queen-size bed, as well as, dramatic views of Lake Pepin and the beautiful bluffs across the Lake.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2014

              About the owner: We own and manage four (4) 'vacation rentals' in Lake City and this is our newest and largest Vacation Rental (sleeps 2 to 12). This home is so unique in so many ways and its decorating is consistent with our 'Coastal Style' of furnishings. While visiting Minnesota's South Shore you will feel as though you're experiencing a bit of New England's charm.

              Why the Owner Chose Lake City:
              Lake City is a very unique community and has the characteristics of a Seaside Community along the New England Coast. This spacious property is very much like a home you would find in the Coastal Northeast. The home comfortably sleeps from two (2) to twelve (12) and is conveniently located to everything in Lake City. Downtown is within walking distance, and did I mention that its views of Lake Pepin are quite Dramatic?

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Lots and lots of living & dining space. A large living room, a large family room, a Café off the kitchen and a dining room with a custom built farmhouse table that seats twelve (12). An attached two car garage and a lovely outdoor patio and grilling space.
