About Cliff or Cindy Haugland

We have been bringing our family to Pepin for over 20 years and are now making memories here with our grandchildren. Recently retired from owning & operating a construction company, we purchased this home to enjoy & share the Pepin area with guests. Cliff has a passion for fishing and was a guide on the Mississippi River in his early years, and now shares his knowledge and experience with others as a US Coast Guard licensed captain & fishing guide. A combination of rental & guide trips can be arranged. Cliff also offers eagle viewing tours from his boat on the lake.

Cliff or Cindy Haugland purchased this house in 2012

With 5 bedrooms, 3 baths and 2 kitchens on separate levels, it offers options for different sized groups to rent, and can comfortably sleep 15-16. Located in the town of Pepin it is easily accessible to the lake and many other attractions.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"What a wonderful time we had at Eagle's Cliff. Such a beautiful inviting home for 16 of us (ages 10 to 79).

Our whole family really enjoyed being there; everything was just perfect at the house. It was so comfortable and it had everything we could possibly need. Cindy and Cliff were so helpful and wonderful. We highly recommend!!

Pepin is a lovely town - we were able to walk downtown, to the beach and to the park. Enjoyed the fireworks sitting on the pier at Lake Pepin. Ate at the Pickle Factory, Homemade Cafe and also the Garden Pub, where they had a great bank playing outside on July 5.

Enjoyed bean bag toss, camp fires, visiting Stockholm and the Alma Bluff park. Highly Recommend!

Wonderful home in Pepin, Wi!

  • 5 of 5

The home was perfect for 5 couples. It was comfortable, well-furnished, and very clean. We launched our boats in the marina a few blocks away and had boat trailer storage right behind the house. We had wonderful bonfires in the evening. Cliff and Cindy were excellent to work with. Overall, a wonderful experience!

Perfect for our Family get together!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our adult children and two grandbabies, a group of 10 in all. The hosts were fabulous, booking was easy, everything was well explained. No surprises, except that the house was even nicer than we anticipated. It made a perfect base for exploring this part of WI.

It is about 5 blocks from the Marina, within an easy walk, even for a 6 year old, and far enough away from the main road running through town, so it was very quiet and peaceful in the neighborhood.

The house was exceptionally well stocked-- I had forgotten a box of household items for the stay, and it turned out to not matter at all. We had everything we needed.

Thanks Cliff and Cindy!
