About Susan Caron
We are Ken and Sue Caron and we moved to Lake City in 2015 after retiring from our careers as a Physical Therapist and Computer Engineer. We fell in love with the small town of Lake City, all of the beautiful old homes in the area, and the friendliness of all the locals. Of course Lake Pepin is a bonus!! We love to kayak , golf, go antiquing and visit wineries, all of which is available in Lake City and the surrounding communities.
Susan Caron purchased this House in 2016
Why Susan Caron chose Lake City
We bought this property because we loved the location and the fact that it is a historic home. You can find our home listed in the booklet "Historic Homes of Lake City." It is known as the Jacob Rucker home and was built in 1870. Jacob was the local blacksmith and harness maker. The Lake City marina and downtown are only 3 blocks from our home and there are a number of golf courses, parks, hiking trails, wineries and shops in and around the area.

Clean and Comfortable
Great location in a darling city. Comfortable, clean and darling.
Large, cozy and comfortable - great home base for exploring Lake Pepin area
Five of us celebrated a girls' weekend in the Lake Pepin area. Susan's rental home was a perfect size for our group, cozy, clean and nicely decorated. We felt very at home and comfortable. We enjoyed the short walk to the water and coffeeshop, and the easy drive to nearby wineries, National Eagle Center, and boutique store shopping. Everything we needed was provided, and Susan was a helpful and gracious host. Thoroughly enjoyable - we'd stay there again.
Great Spot in a Wonderful Town!!!
Our visit to Lake City was short but packed full of fun events!!!

Cute house, perfect for a nice little getaway!
House is nice and clean. Had everything we needed for our stay and then some!
Old house....NICELY done! The owners are to be commended on the work they have done!
The owners have taken this old brick house and made a very comfortable and brightly decorated place to stay in Lake City. The updated kitchen with the super large island and the dining area made our stay all the easier. All the amenities are just right and the location was an easy walk to the downtown eating and drinking establishments. We would certainly stay here again.
House was perfect for our weekend stay in Lake City for a family reunion.
Also visit Wabasha and Red Wing , each just 15 minutes north or south of Lake City. Drive the Great River Road on the Minnesota and Wisconsin sides of the Mississippi River and enjoy many quaint towns and wonderful antiquing, shopping, and wine tasting. The National Eagle Center is a must see in Wabasha.
