"The Vintage cottage was a wonderful spot for our family of 4 celebrating my husband's birthday. From the board games to the fully stocked kitchen, it felt as though all of our needs were anticipated. The view of the lake is perfect. The only drawback is the fact that the only bathroom is located on the first level and the bedrooms are upstairs and, because the house is over 100 years old, the staircase is very steep. As such, seniors or anyone with knee issues may have some difficulty. Otherwise, I highly recommend this beautiful property."

"Our family had a great weekend at the Cyclin Inn. The setting was beautiful and restful and "away from it all", but close enough to have plenty of adventures in the area. And while we enjoyed the area attractions, we all found the house to be one of the favorite parts of our getaway. My teenager daughter and friend loved the neighboring ponies and goats while my husband and I enjoyed relaxing on the front porch, listening to the birds and watching the bikes glide by."

"My wife and I stayed at Joe's Bluff top home for three days this July, it was perfect! its not very often when you go on a vacation and the place you've booked to stay at becomes the highlight of the trip... this was one of those occasions. My family and I have been coming down to the lake Pepin area for 20+ years, usually in the fall, and we have stayed in many places over those years... the search is over now though, this is far and away the best! secluded and quiet, large beautiful kitchen, comfortable beds, big bathroom, a very relaxing living room with "the view" as soon as we walked in we saw the view that looked out over the lake and the bluffs and we were absolutely stunned! it was also a great vantage point to watch the huge storm that rolled in over the weekend, although my wife was not quite as enthused about that as I was, can't wait to enjoy that view in the Autumn with the fall colors blazing. Joe was a very good host too, was quick to answer any questions we had, even offered to take us sailing on his boat, at one point there was apparently an issue with the air conditioning, which was essential as the temps were in the 90's, before we had even noticed anything was wrong he contacted me and informed us that he and a AC repairman would like to stop by and fix it if the timing was good for us, talk about attentive! anyway, my wife and I were very happy and would highly recommend Joe's bluff house, we will most definitely be back... soon and often! Thank you Joe!"

"The Bell Tower Suites has been the "home" for our family holiday gathering for the past three years. Although the converted church with its original stained glass windows is beautiful year round, it is wonderful for a gathering during the holiday season. When we arrived, our hosts Dawna and Steve had made the suites festive for us with Christmas decorations complete with an absolutely HUGE Christmas tree!! There were even items strategically placed for the little ones to find and enjoy. Special gifts from the hosts to our group also were placed in each suite.
The Bell Tower allows us to create family memories that would not be possible in a typical hotel situation. For example, cookie decorating has become a major family tradition during our stays. Everyone participates which makes for a happy, but hectic scene. The results are as diverse as those who participate. Now place this family event in a converted historical church. Sunshine gave our entire room a splendid background of colors sparkling through the stained glass. Now add the cozy fireplace for a perfect setting. Very special!
We rented both suites which is ideal for families with children. If the doors to the two suites are left open, there is easy convenient access to use both suites simultaneously. During afternoon nap time, the children could nap in one suite, and the other suite was still available for the adults to visit. Also, in the evenings, the children could go to sleep with parents safely nearby. Since our families come from five different states for this weekend, the ability to be together yet have the space to spread out is a luxury. The layout of the Bell Tower Suites provides us that ability. Having TWO complete kitchens available for making a large holiday meal for a group gathering is very helpful and convenient. The suites are very clean and well equipped. Hosts, Dawna and Steve, are outstanding! Response time to any form of communication prior to arrival was especially prompt! It was always obvious that they really wanted our stay to be perfect.
If looking for only two bedrooms, then you can rent only one of the two suites. If you are looking for a lodging that is unique, large while still being cozy, with especially welcoming hosts, and want to create a memorable family gathering ANY TIME of the year, the BELL TOWER SUITES IS YOUR SPOT!!!! After staying here for three years now, our family group can't imagine being anyplace else."
