Nestled at the foot of the bluffs on the edge of Winona, the Village House is just minutes from the Great River Road National Scenic Byway, historic downtown Winona, and the campuses of Saint Mary’s University and Winona State University.

Winona is a wonderful place to explore any time of year offering unlimited outdoor recreation and world-class art, music, theater, and architecture. We have many fantastic festivals including the Great River Shakespeare Festival, Minnesota Beethoven Festival, Boats and Bluegrass, Frozen River Film Festival, Great Dakota Gathering, and the Dixieland Jazz Festival. The Minnesota Marine Art Museum--just 5 minutes from our property--features work by Monet, Renoir, Van Gogh, Cassatt, Cezanne, Picasso, Matisse, Kandinsky, O'Keeffe, Homer, Wyeth, and many more. Historic downtown Winona, a 7-minute drive, is loaded with beautiful historical buildings, shopping, and one-of-a-kind dining opportunities. Check-out for a complete list of activities, events, arts, culture, and festivals.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

Why the Owner Chose Winona, MN, USA:
We fell in love with the Village House when my parents stayed there while visiting our family. When the house came up for sale, we jumped at the opportunity to own such a charming property, and we have enjoyed sharing it with our friends, family, and guests ever since.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
When the Village House was completely gutted and renovated, thoughtful attention was given to adding all the modern comforts while maintaining the original character of the house. One of the best features of the home is that each bedroom has a full, private bath so no one has to share. In addition, there is another half-bath right off the kitchen. The outdoor spaces are equally inviting, especially the patio and pergola which is surrounded by gardens and our favorite spot to enjoy wine-time while watching the sun set behind the bluffs. We especially love the exposed brick walls on the interior of the house and the high ceilings and tall windows.
