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, wood burning, fireplace really creates a cozy and romantic atmosphere during the winter months (Don't worry, we provide firewood for your stay during the winter months of Nov-Apr). In addition, 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.

The living room features a queen size futon, 8 ft couch, one and half person chair w/ottoman in front of the fireplace as well as a Prairie style rocking chair and 2 recliners.

Sleeping accommodations are a queen size bed in the bedroom, a queen size futon and 8 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 or the weekend? 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 eagles! During the winter 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.

Spacious house, great location

  • 5 of 5

Awesome place!

My family stayed for my wedding. We were close to many of the restaurants in Pepin.

Beautiful deck and open floor plan.

The house is probably better suited for kids/younger people if you have a larger group as some of the beds required a pretty intense climb that some of my family members were not able to do.

Great location, very secure. Clean grounds.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location. It was within walking distance to the winery. We were even allowed to bring our dogs to the winery. Owners were very helpful when i had questions. Damage deposit was returned promptly. Will stay again when I am in the area.

Great location & wonderful owners!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a wedding at Villa Bellezza Winery & Vineyards and the location of this house was perfect- Right across the road from the winery! Tim & Jane were very helpful and accommodating throughout our stay and the house had a great cabin feel. Would absolutely stay again- Thanks Tim & Jane!!

Peaceful, beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

I want to thank Tim for the last-minute accommodations he was gracious and he was funny. It was a beautiful place to stay in a little surprised with a winery within walking distance from the house. I loved all the little touches around the cabin they had a lot of games to play which was really fun two adult women playing sorry with a glass of wine at the end of the night was something we wouldn't normally do. It was relaxing whimsical and I was able to bring my dog which I absolutely loved. The Big Deck they had over looking like Pepin was just awesome. I would recommend for sure and like to come back in the summer months.

Another amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

Another amazing stay in Pepin. This place is beautiful. Entry issues resolved within 10 minutes by the helpful owner. Walk to Harbor View Cafe and Villa Belleza Winery. High vaulted ceiling, private loft, and incredible deck. Beautiful lake views. Even the occasional train is charming.
