About the Property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 6)

**NEW Summer Rate for 2017**
The cottage may be rented for the whole summer of JUNE, JULY and AUGUST for the total price of $6500. You supply the towels and sheets and we will maintain the property with weekly mowings. References will be requested. Or if you prefer, stay for a shorter period of time and pay the usual nightly or weekly rate.

This wonderful, summer cottage will appeal to those in need of a retreat, golf or kayak outing, or small, quiet, family gathering. Many have come to boat or fish and some have come to merely relax with a good book and also take in the view of the beautiful Mississippi River. We supply you with a full kitchen, 3 bedrooms (1 on the main floor and 2 on the second floor), 1.5 baths, large living room, sun porch and a dining area to seat 6. This cottage is not intended for parties.

The outside consists of a large yard for gaming activities, a carport, and a patio near the river with a metal stairway leading to the dock below.


We are located across from County Road 3, just 11 miles south of Winona, Minnesota and 15 miles north of La Crosse, Wisconsin and between mile markers 14 and 15 off highway 61.

This is a summer cottage, available June 1st through Labor Day only.
No pets are allowed on the property. Be informed that light sleepers may not appreciate the train tracks being near the property. The year of 2015 saw a great deal of train action due to the high demand of oil and frac sand and then with the lower demand in 2016, the train action was almost cut in half (maybe 5 trains a day).
