"We take an annual family vacation with our grown children along with our parents and this home could not have been more perfect for the 10 of us. It is large and comfortable and had absolutely everything we needed. The pictures do not do justice to the size of the rooms and the beauty and comfort of the home. We enjoyed some activities in the area but stayed at the house for the most part because the pool, hot tub, pool table, deck, games and family time were more than enough to fill our time. We also enjoyed a visit from family who live near Minneapolis who we rarely see and they were able to join us for dinner (14 at the huge dining table). The house was truly perfect and family members have already voted to return next year rather than trying somewhere new. Thank you to the owners for the wonderful accommodations and for being so friendly and helpful."

"Great location for a family vacation. 4 families from MN and SD converged on the house. Plenty of room for everyone. So many activities on site for the kids. They were either in the basement or outside, playing in the pool, with the tetherball or in the sand. Wonderful view. Fire-pit was hugely popular. Clean and inviting. Owner easy to work with. The adults spent most of the time relaxing on the deck, in the sunroom, or in the family room. Would definitely stay here again!"

"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."

"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."
