Very nice!

  • 4 of 5

Property was very clean with plenty of room to relax. Easy to walk down to the river. Only suggestion is to consider adding a second bathroom or a second area (that is well light area with a sink, countertop and mirror) so that when the bathroom is in use others can use the second area for toothbrushing, makeup, etc. Maybe add a game closet for rainy days. Good value.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your suggestions. We've talked about putting another sink/bathroom in and will definitely get some games for the cottage.

Great cottage, fun area and a wonderful owner!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The cottage was comfortable, beautifully appointed and very clean! The front porch was a great spot for relaxing with a drink! Heidi was so friendly and did an excellent job of communicating with me.

Thanks for making us feel welcome!

Great Place !

  • 5 of 5

We had our 7th annual "girls weekend" at this cottage.

Over all it was very nice, clean and had everything a person would need to

stay there. Many places to see by walking, water is close by. Only one thing I can see improving is some dry fire wood. Other that that we all loved the place and hope to come back next year. Thank you !! The Olafson Girls

Beautiful Vacation Destination

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Pepin, WI. We were in town attending a wedding. We stayed at the Great River Cottage with friends. We had an absolute blast!! The cottage was beautifully decorated and had all the comforts of home. We enjoyed the fire pit out front and people watching from the comfy front porch. We had a fun day of boating and having dinner at the Pickle Factory down the road right on the lake. Played Bocce Ball and other games in the spacious front yard. We will be back!! Thanks for hosting us Heidi! The house was perfect!!
