About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

This beautiful home is located in the historic village of Pepin, Wisconsin. The Twin Cities are just over 1 hour away and Rochester is just 1 hour away. Home is beautifully appointed and has all the conveniences, including barbeque, sattlelite television and wi-fi, book, magazines and stereo.

You can have a quiet getaway or an action vacation with hundreds of shops and restaurants in our many towns around Lake Pepin. If you want festivals and activities, see the Mississippi Valley Partners website. Pepin Hill Church is 111 years old and is located 6 miles from town surrounded by farms. Laura Days (Little House on the Prairie) are in September. On-the-lake activities are year round. Just hang out at the Co-op store and you will find all the best places to eat, fish, swim and sail.

Keywords: Charming, Home located in the historic village of Pepin, WI, birthplace of Laura Ingalls Wilder from 'Little House on the Prairie'

Pepin Cottage has 4 distinct sleeping areas. Downstairs has a pair of twins and a full size along with the half bath. Washer and dryer are in their own rooms, if needed.

The back porch has a single bed overlooking the backyard. It is suitable for someone who may have difficulty navigating stairs. It comes with an adjacent full bath.

Upstairs houses a room with a pair of twin bunk beds with safety rails. The beds are very comfortable. The master bedroom has a queen-size bed. An iron with ironing board are located upstairs if needed.

We have a great spot for a 'girls weekend' outing or a multi-family vacation. Family reunions are really fun at Pepin Cottage.

We proudly display all four seasons. In the winter, our village and the surrounding villages have many monthly activities (check Pepin, Stockholm, Maiden Rock, Nelson, Wabasha, Lake City and Red Wing websites). Don't forget ice fishing. Spring shows all the new foliage, the new crops of leaves, corn and soybeans. Watch the ice flows break up. Summer weather is spectacular. Try our beach, the boat harbor next to the beach, the beach-front shops. Bring you appetite to try out the many restaurants. Bring a boat and we have a spot and the slip by the harbor. Fall colors in September and October are worth the trip. The sugar maple trees show almost every color of the rainbow. Take a stroll anytime around our village to see great sights and to meet great people.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

Why the Owner Chose Pepin, WI, USA:
We chose Pepin as a vacation destination because it is the most friendly town in Wisconsin, the scenery is awesome all the time; there is so much to see. The local merchants are visitor friendly. We have numerous great restaurants. We are close to the Twin Cities and all of southern towns in Wisconsin and Minnesota. Pepin and the surrounding communities have numerous events 12 months of the year, which have an appeal to artists, those who enjoy film, fishing, boating, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, eagle watching and much more. The 'Laura Days' activities in September offer great enjoyment for kids.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home is situated in a quiet neighborhood. If listening carefully, you can hear a train whistle in the far distance. The home is very uniquely designed. Everything is very 'custom,' from the ash inlaid cathedral ceiling to the stainless kitchen in custom hardwoods. The home is a true work of art. You can enjoy a easy 3 block walk to the boat harbor and all of the local shopping. Several eating establishments are within 2 blocks. AND, if you come in by boat, we have local transportation from the boat harbor to our home for you and your luggage.
