About the property

Chalet, 1 Bedroom + Loft + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 1-9)

Updated as of Sep 2017: New furniture updates! New couch, chair and 2 recliners. Will make watching visiting that much more comfortable!

Satellite/cable has been installed from DISH with 'America's Top 250' channels to be viewed on a 40' HDTV.

Also, we have a high bandwidth DSL Wifi throughout the cabin offers easy and quick access to the Internet. If you work through you computer, then plan on a change of scenery while having access to the Internet and your Cloud applications.

Description: A beautiful cabin style home built in 2005 that is quite unique. It has a large great room with red oak floors and knotty pine cathedral ceilings. The oak wrapped roof beam is more than 17 feet above the floor! A stone fireplace really creates a cozy and romantic atmosphere during the winter months. Don't worry, a gas furnace will insure that you never get cold.

The spacious living room and kitchen are all open which creates a wonderful Great Room space for entertaining family & friends.

There are beautiful views of Lake Pepin from the kitchen and living room. There is a 40" TV, entertainment center with DVD/VHS video player and selection of movies, & fireplace. The living room features a queen size futon, Prairie style loveseat sofa w/ottoman in front of the fireplace as well as a Prairie style rocking chair.

Sleeping accommodations are a queen size bed in the bedroom, a queen size futon and 7 ft leather couch in the great room, and 2 twin beds, a full size futon, and 2 foam seats that fold out to mattresses in the loft.

The large 16 ft by 27 ft cedar deck offers space for entertaining and great views of Lake Pepin. There are a flight of stairs to negotiate as the garage is below and living quarters above.

The perfect vacation rental place to spend quality time vacationing, family gatherings, or a romantic get-away! Note: We are located less than 2 blocks from the Villa Bellezza Winery!

About Tim and Jane

My wife and I bought the property in 2000 and built the cabin in 2005.

We enjoy spending time here with our 6 children.

Tim and Jane purchased this chalet in 2005

Why Tim and Jane chose Pepin

We love Pepin! The people are friendly, the scenery is awesome, and we are always reluctant to leave.

Work from home? Why not make this your home for a week? We have high bandwidth DSL WiFi to make work from a quiet , remote location easy and relaxing.

What makes this chalet unique

The quiet and peacefulness reign. Seeing eagles is definitely more common than not seeing an eagle, especially Oct - Apr. During the these months the quiet calms frazzled nerves and there is nothing like a fire in the fireplace throughout the weekend.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Posted with guest permission for stay on Dec 22-25:



We'll definitely be booking again with you in the future. We did see several eagles and took some walks on the beach. I don't think any of the restaurants were open during our stay due to Sunday and the holidays, but we wanted to stay in and cook anyway. Your place was well stocked with everything we needed to make all of our meals and really enjoy ourselves. It was exactly what we were hoping for, and the drive up there along the river was lovely. More than anything, we appreciated being able to bring our dog. I think she enjoyed roaming the beach even more than we did.

Plenty of space in a cozy environment

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I enjoyed a chilly October weekend at this cozy cabin while we were in town for a wedding. We were overjoyed to light a fire when we arrived on Friday night. The kitchen had everything we needed to make and share a lovingly made dinner and breakfast together. All in all, we had a wonderful stay and would return again in the future. Thank you, Tim and Jane!

Spacious for a group

  • 4 of 5

A group of 7 of us in our 20s and 30s stayed here for a wedding at Villa Bellezza. It's one of the very few places available for rent within walking distance of the wedding venue, which was the biggest draw for us. It does have a bit of an odd layout, however. There is a full flight of stairs to get to the main living quarters, plus a steep ladder to get to the 3 twin beds in the loft. All of our group agreed that it is a great place to hang out (comfortable couches/chairs, natural light, well stocked kitchen) but not an ideal/comfortable arrangement for sleeping. There is only one bedroom, so privacy is minimal, and only 2 of the 7 of us slept well. The bed in the bedroom is the only real bed...others are futons, couches, and small twin beds without box springs.

Beautiful home; beautiful view.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Eagles Soar. It is so difficult to find dog-friendly homes and this was exceptional! Beautiful home, great view, and such accommodating people to work with. We hope to be back soon!

Great vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I and our two dogs spent a relaxing 9 days here. The interior of the cabin is both beautiful and comfortable, and the large deck offers a great place to relax while enjoying a view of the Mississippi River. Pepin itself has several nice & convenient restaurants, and Stockholm 5 minutes up the road has as good a pie store as you can find anywhere. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
