"Sharon was a great hostess, working with us on arrival time and ready for us when we arrived. The property is outfitted with everything you might need. Everything is kept in good order, clean and great quality. Great location near the lake. Good meeting spot for north and south people to meet in the middle!"

"Four couples traveled from the Twin Cities to just get away and relax. This is the place to do just that. We found a great restaurant in a nearby town who served Prime Rib for $11. We went back a second time! The food and service was as good as the price. The accommodations were clean, comfortable and just plain relaxing! We really enjoyed ourselves and would definitely return again. Your GPS will lead you astray but the extra time finding the place is well worth it!"

"We rented this home near Red Wing with 4 of us for scrapbooking. It worked out great. The dining table was really big and worked great for scrapbooking. They had extra tables that we could use for overflow for some of our tools. Worked great. Overall, great spot!"

"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."
