"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."

"We had a great time at this town home! This is right on Lake Pepin. We loved sitting on the patio and looking at the water. We even had a bald eagle in the tree right outside! Quiet, peaceful spot. Great to have two separate bedrooms and baths and the room set up was great. Plenty of room for people, comfortable furniture, newer appliances, and the kitchen was stocked. Only disappointment was we had planned to take the Pearl of the Lake Paddle Boat, which docks right outside, and they canceled the day of for "not enough people." Thanks for sharing your town home, we had a great vacation there!"

"My husband and I were there for three nights. The condo was very well appointed and comfortable. The three flights up were killer with the luggage, just a warning. The view of the river is obstructed by some newer construction. A deck would have been a great addition to give it some outdoor space. But we enjoyed our stay. If you stay, I highly recommend The Olde Triangle Pub across the street as the food was great and the staff was friendly."

"My husband and I stayed here with our 3 young children and a set of grandparents. It was one of the best homes we have ever rented! It was clean, well stocked, and the owners were very helpful and accommodating - they seemed to have thought of everything you could possibly need. To top it off, the location was beautiful and within walking distance of the heart of town. Definitely happy with our choice :)"
