Beautiful Large Country Getaway
Big open floor plan. Great for gathering. Lawn had lots of room for yard games. We would return in the future.
Lovely, very well-equipped home with responsive homeowner!
We had a wonderful 2-night stay at this home in Welch for my husband's 40th birthday. The house easily accommodated many adults and our 4-year-old daughter. We were amazed at how well equipped the kitchen was, which made cooking for our group very easy. We loved being able to spread out throughout the large house but also easily gather together in the great-room or basement family room area.
We had a glitch with the TV when we turned on ESPN to try to view the Frozen Four final, but were able to connect with the owner who was very responsive and was able to help fix the situation quickly - a huge help and relief!
We'd highly recommend this home for large groups of all ages.
Very nice...well maintained!
One of the neat features of the property was the hill in the backyard that made a great
sledding hill for the grandkids and the big kids too! Our 4 families had plenty of living space
and the kitchen had lots of counter space. The dining room table was huge with a
neat bench on one side that was perfect for the kids. The weekend went too fast.
Beautiful scenery was icing on the cake.
Perfect house for a big gathering!
This was our third time staying at the house with a big group of friends for a winter ski weekend! The house is perfectly equipped and comfortable for large group. I would highly recommend it and will be booking again next year!
Gorgeous Home with beautiful quite surroundings
Lovely space! Owner very accommodating and have thought of everything in terms of entertainment. Very clean and would go back in a heartbeat !
Everyone, lots of adults and kids, were happy with it all.
We had a large group of 6 families. With many adults and kids and this house was the best equipped for our needs. All queen beds plus a couple of Click-Clack sofa's made for low stress accommodations. The large kitchen & dining room worked perfect for all our meals. They even had a couple of folding tables we pulled out for snack tables.
The basement with the ping pong table and entertainment room combo worked really well to keep the kids occupied with enough space and romping room to hang out. All in all it was a fantastic stay despite the cold weather outside.
The house had modern furnishings throughout. A few things showed expected wear and tear. They could use some new ping pong paddles but that is super minor.
We only had one maintenance issue with the basement shower, but the owner was quick to respond and it didn't really stop anything because there were 3 other options.
Overall, a great experience out in farm country 10 minutes from Red Wing.
This property is close to skiing (Welch Village), gambling (Treasure Island Casino), and water activities (Mississippi River and Cannon River).
