Wonderful house!

  • 4 of 5

Every year my 4 sisters and I find a place to gather. This year we chose Jessie's Guest House in Brownsdale, MN. The home is wonderful. Spacious, cozy, beautifully renovated and decorated. We had everything we needed. "Sleeps 7" was what we saw when looking for a property and we didn't check closely enough to realize the 5-7 spots are fold-out single couches/beds. It turned out ok though. Also, we wanted to go on the hike that is illustrated in the binder describing the nearby activities. We walked a long while in both directions from the house, along HWY 56, following the map that was provided, but we never found the trail. We had a great time at Four Daughters Winery, only a 25 minute drive to Spring Valley. We loved the cozy kitchen nook to play board games and visit and munch on all the treats we brought. We enjoyed our stay at Jesse's Guest House and loved learning about the history within those walls. Thank you for sharing your family legacy with us. Great time.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. We do take great pride in the home and the history behind it. We are sad to know that you could not locate the trails. I will review the map again to make sure it is clear where the trails begin. The trails are located on the west side of Hwy 56. Thank you for choosing Jessie's and glad you and your sisters made some beautiful memories there.

We had a wonderful stay, beautiful house, clean, well stocked, nicely furnished.

Unfortunately the weather was not warm enough to be able to make use of the beautiful outdoor patio. But beautiful property.

women get away

  • 5 of 5

Great house and area! We had five women of three generations reconnecting. Perfect house for relaxing in the kitchen playing cards, fires outside at night while chatting, gourmet kitchen to cook in. Bedrooms were great, master bedroom very luxurious. Only drawback was both bathrooms were located in bedrooms. Visited four sisters winery for dinner, fabulous, and went to Lanesboro for daytime wandering. A bit of driving but well worth it. Actually saw a camel in a cow pasture! A week end we will repeat.

Awesome stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Jessie's place. It is even better than what the pictures show. We had some friends over and they couldn't believe how nice it was and how well it was furnished. The two private bedrooms and bathrooms make it great for multiple couples/families. The sun room and adjoining patio were great. We enjoyed many breakfasts out on the patio. We also spent time out on the front porch enjoying the accommodations. We surely will recommend it to all our friends EXCEPT for the week we plan on staying there next year :). We stayed here while attending a family reunion in Hayfield. I remember delivering newspapers to this house when I was a young boy while living in Brownsdale. Great job in remodeling and love all the wood interior.

A gem of a find

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully restored farmhouse with modern conveniences. Tastefully decorated and very roomy and cozy are a few points to list about this great house in the country. The area is not the most scenic, nor does it offer any of the tourist attractions that many big city locations would offer. However, if your looking for a great place to get away that's peaceful, quiet and offers all the comforts of home, Jessie's is the place. I spent every evening sitting on the wrap around porch watching the night go by. With seating for over 20 on the back patio, and 8 on the front porch, entertaining would be a delight. I could go on and on, but it wouldn't do it justice. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed unless excitement is your thing. Then a different area is needed.
