Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-6)
Build brand new in 2010 this 1 bedroom apartment (800 sq ft) is above a retail space (which used to be our ice cream/sandwich/gift shop). It has a very large deck (~ 1000 sq ft) that looks out over the Pepin marina and Lake Pepin. We have been greening up the deck again this year with new plantings. The apartment is completely furnished and has a comfortable decor. It's simple style will appeal to those wanting a reasonably priced escape with ample space for a comfortable extended stay. A great place for couples or families.
Come to the Pepin area to slow down, relax, and enjoy the wonderful views of the Mississippi River bluffs and Lake Pepin. Explore the many small towns, shops, art galleries, wineries and eateries the area has to offer.
Please know that Pepin has trains that run along the waterfront. Trains run VERY regularly! Some folks don't like the noise. If you are a light sleeper this may bother you. Also know that the railroad has instituted a "quiet zone" so the trains will no longer need to blow their horns in the village (unless emergency). Be sure to cross the tracks ONLY at the marked crossings. If caught walking across the tracks in other locations you may be subject to a significant fine ! $$$$ Further more, the rails and crossings were improved so there is even less train wheel noise.

About John Worrell
John and Deirdre Worrell had a dream to run their own businesses so we purchased a small commercial building on the waterfront in Pepin, WI in 2007. Since then the old building has been demolsihed and a new one built to have a retail space, office space, and apartment space. We used to run Hear it Melt - an ice cream/sandwich shop in the retail space. Deirdre's Audiology business North Ridge Hearing Company is in the office space. The residential space above the commercial space is our apartment get-away. We love the beauty, pace, and people of the Pepin area for recreating.
John Worrell purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why John Worrell chose Pepin
We chose Pepin for our location because: - The area is beautiful - Lake Pepin offers 17,000 acres of water - The Tiffany Wildlife area offers 14,000 acres of wildlife area - It's close to our home (1 hr) and offers a wide variety of activities. - There is something in the area for everyone.
What makes this Apartment unique
Pepin is a village of ~1000 people. We love the small town feel. There are also several small towns in the area that also offer a variety of little shops and activities.

Interesting and Comfortable Location
This was a great accommation for our two night stay for a wedding at the winery. A great location across from the marina, coffee shop next door and restaurants down the block. Frequent trains were interesting and not a deterrent to sleep. Enjoyed the wonderful deck - grilled one evening and frequently used the seating day and night. We would return.
Thank you for your review. We appreciate all the wedding attendees and families that have stayed (and even some brides and grooms). The deck is a great gathering area. Consider renting our lower apartment too for larger wedding groups. The lower unit is street level, very accessible for limited mobility people, and pet friendly to boot. You can find it also on VRBO.com
Great stay. Loved the deck and hawk and eagle watching
Clean and neat. Came for a wedding and it worked out perfectly
Glad you enjoyed your stay. The birds and wildlife have been very active these last couple of very warm days. Lots to see.
Very clean and comfortable place!
Very happy you enjoyed your stay and really appreciate you taking time to review the property. We have enjoyed another season of great guests.
The place was beautiful, clean, and in a great location. John was great to work with - both for check in and check out. I highly recommend staying at John’s place here in Pepin!
Clean, nice, well appointed, good location.
The rooftop deck was lovely. The space was great for our family of four. Our kids enjoyed the small public beach just across the street.
Thank you for the review. We are glad you had an enjoyable stay and were able to enjoy some of the local amenities.
Beautiful place and a great location!
Perfect location overlooking the marina and Lake Pepin. The patio is done beautifully with many flowers and cute art pieces. Very relaxing! The owners have thought of all the amenities! We would highly recommend this quaint place!
There are several local festivals in the area each year. There is a significant art community in the area. Laura Ingles Wilder days in Sept., Spring and Fall Art Tours. Fly Away Film Festival to name a few. Check out the National Eagle Center in Wabasha.
