About the property

4 Br, 5 Ba

The Village House is a fully restored farmhouse nestled at the foot of the bluffs in a peaceful residential neighborhood on the edge of Winona. The house has been completely remodeled but still has loads of character with exposed brick walls, high ceilings, and gracious furnishings. The outdoor spaces are equally inviting, especially the covered patio which is surrounded by gardens with a view of our charming neighborhood. Each bedroom has a full private bath so no one has to share. We're conveniently located just minutes from historic downtown Winona, two university campuses, and the Mississippi River.

We are inspected annually and licensed by the MN Dept. of Health.

Amenities include:

Full private bath in every guest room


Climate control zones

Linens and towels

Ceiling fans in every bedroom

Handicap accessibility on main level

Off-street parking


Patio and pergola

Outdoor Grill

Community televisions with cable and DVD player

*Please note: There is no stove in the kitchen. However, there is a toaster oven, microwave, full-size refrigerator, dishwasher, toaster, crock pot, coffee pot, dishes, and an outdoor gas grill.

Why Anne Larson chose Winona

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.

What makes this house unique

When the Village House was completely gutted and renovated, thoughtful attention was given to adding modern comfort while maintaining the original character of this historic 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.

We are inspected and licensed by the MN Dept. of Health.

Love it here!

  • 5 of 5

Have always enjoyed staying at the Village House Inn. I've lost count of how many visits I have made staying there to visit my daughter at SMU over the past four years. Great place to stay!

Perfect venue for a college friends' reunion!

  • 5 of 5

The Village House Inn is the perfect venue for our annual college friends' reunion. The four bedrooms with private baths, along with the spacious dining and living rooms, makes for a comfortable weekend of relaxing and catching up with each other. The patio, with the gas grill, was ideal for an evening barbecue. We've stayed here for several years and have already booked for 2018! We thank Anne, the owner, for her wonderful hospitality.

Family Stay

  • 4 of 5

Three families stayed for 2 nights at the Village Inn. The house is meticulous inside and out with attention to detail throughout. The terrace at the back is nicely hidden to most of the surrounding homes so that you feel like you are all alone. We did not see Anne but she was gracious and prompt in regards to all communication. We had to change our dates due to unforeseen circumstances and Anne was very accommodating. That being said, we were very disappointed in the noise from the busy highway in front of the house. We weren't aware that it was so close to the highway. A few members of our group got little sleep and the terrace out back was almost unusable do to the street noise. Maybe there was a specific event in town that weekend but the noise from the motorcycles was overbearing. Also, we didn't realize how limited we were in not having a stove and the grill not functioning properly but we were aware that there was no stove when we booked the house. The rest of the kitchen was supplied very well . Anne had board games and movies to watch which was very nice. It was a beautiful property but the noise would keep us from staying again, especially when the weather was so perfect to be outside.

Owner's Response: For lighter sleepers we suggest either the West Room or the North Room--both of which are located on the side of the house opposite the highway. We have also installed ceiling fans in each of the bedrooms, and some of our guests have found the white noise to be helpful in mitigating highway noise.

Enjoyed it

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable, family really happy with everything..... only minor suggestions:

Suggestions: coffee maker takes hours to brew, need a new one (went to grocery store and when returned still wasn't done :), some of the bath towels should not be white, there should be some extra's somewhere (I couldn't have asked I know) , my dad wasn't happy that the cable didn't work for TV viewing (I didn't care), window sills when opened were full of dead lady bugs(old ones). Road is noisy, can't help that.

Homeowner very friendly, responsive.

I'll share pictures of the bride getting ready there when they are back.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great suggestions! We now have a new coffee pot and some special washcloths for makeup removal. (There's plenty of extra towels in the laundry room too, so just help yourself.) And those pesky Asian beetles... We'll do our best to stay on top of it!
