Family Reunion with family in from Ohio, NY and DC
"We had family in fron Onio, NY and DC arriving and leaving through out the first week in August. The front sunroom was great with the low windows, we at all our meals out there and enjoyed sitting around visiting. The layout of the down stairs was ideal, you could be in in the kitchen and still be part of what was going on in other parts of the house. The bathroom was beautiful and the newly finished bedrooms were very clean and comfortable. We rented paddle boards and had a blast paddling around the bay. We had my one year old great nephew visiting and the walk in beach kept him entertained for hours. One of the cool days we bult a fire in the sauna and enjoyed getting warmed up and some jumped in the water after. It was also great to have a large yard for lawn games and enough parking for all. We will definitely rent again for any future family reunions!"

"This is a beautiful log home. Very spacious, full kitchen, two bedrooms with full baths, two extra sleeping nooks and a pull-out couch. The deck has a large hot-tub and a spectacular view. There is a large stone fireplace with wood supplied. We cooked our own meals but there are plenty of places to eat in nearby towns. The owners are easy to communicate with, responding quickly to e-mails and leaving contact numbers in case of an issue.
We particularly enjoyed meals at the large dining room table and drinks by the fireplace in the evening.
If your looking for a large comfortable home that can accommodate 2-13 people and has a beautiful view of Lake Pepin, you will not be disappointed in Lion Downe Cottage !!!
I honestly cant think of a single complaint."

"This well maintained lake home is situated in a very peaceful and beautiful surrounding. We arrived to find the house so clean and comfortable, we felt immediately at home. Every day I enjoyed my morning coffee while looking out the large picture windows at the beautiful view of the lake. It was my favorite time of day, and so very relaxing. The house is well stocked with everything anyone would need for housekeeping for a week's stay. It even has the extra fridge downstairs for your beverages, not to mention the great icemaker in the upstairs fridge that puts out plenty of ice. There were only two of us for the week, but I could see that the house would certainly accommodate a couple of families with kids very easily. We really enjoyed the large center island in the kitchen, with seating for 6. We spent most of our time there when we had friends come to visit. Kathy is so nice and helpful, and very accommodating. I would not hesitate to recommend this wonderful vacation home to anyone, and we ourselves will definitely rent it again the next time we come back to Wisconsin. Thank you, Kathy!"

"This place was GREAT!!! As advertised, and lots of little extras... The location was wonderful and we loved having the bikes to ride to the beach. The place was very clean and easy check-in and check-out. Nice being able to sit outside at night too!!! Plenty of room for family; just wished we had more time to stay! Thank you Shelia!"
