Golf Trip

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our golf trip. All the amenities, the space and the location of the house was perfect. The house was clean and had everything we needed from utensils, to a grill to the pool/hot tub, games and the amount of beds/bathrooms was absolutely what we needed. Also great golf courses near by. I would absolutely recommend this place, the communication was excellent as well as the property.

Loved the spacious home and Red Wing/Hastings area.

  • 5 of 5

We use VRBO rentals all of the time. Prefer them over hotel stays. This home was perfect for us and the room accommodations were excellent. Might be our best VRBO stay yet.

We are a group of college friends who try to get together annually for a friends outing. The group has grown as most of us are now married and some have kids. But no kids were on this weekend escape trip. The home worked well for cooking big meals and playing games at night. Inside there was darts, pool and ping pong. Outside allowed for a couple of bonfires, yard games and use of the hot tub. Everything we could have wanted was there. Best kitchen ever. Plus lots of room for evening board games or TV viewing for the guys.

Thanks, Ken, for accommodating our group. We will be back.

Loved the beautiful home and Red Wing area

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been doing annual "get-togethers" for the past 8 years. Typically we have rented a home for those stays. But of all the places we have been to, this home tops them all. Our family keeps growing - 18 at current count - but this home offer lots of room so we didn't feel like we were on top of each other. Plus the 4 FULL bathrooms make it so much easier to get our day started.

We enjoyed breakfast on the deck almost every morning. The home is super private and the back deck overlooks some woods and farm fields. Even had some deer, turkeys and a farm cat make a visit. Also not uncommon to see bald eagles flying in the distance.

We enjoyed the spacious yard for playing yard games, basketball and bonfires. The kids took full advantage of the swimming pool, and the adults enjoyed the hot tub. Plus we were just a short drive to enjoy activities on the Mississippi River and Lake Pepin.

The owner was very helpful and accommodating of our needs. Even provided a list of attractions to take in during our stay. Appreciate your quick communication and thorough follow thru. A smaller group is considering a trip in October to see fall colors. The kids want to come back in January for skiing after discovering Welch Village was just a few minutes away. Hope to be in contact with you again soon. Thanks again!

Awesome stay

  • 5 of 5

I led a group of 12 golfers on our yearly trip. This home provided everything, I mean EVERYTHING, we could want. First was 12 individual beds for each man in his own room or shared room. No need for sofa beds. Enough dinnerware, and utensils to take care of an army. Three large rooms to sit and watch TV or play cards. A ping pong/pool table, a hot tub and pool to entertain us. Best of all just a short distance to a number of golf courses and restaurants. And in closing we left the place in the same manner we found it and received our cleaning deposit within a week. What else could you ask for?

Everything we wanted and more!

  • 5 of 5

We had a big group (4 families: 8 adults and 11 kids) stay at this house during Christmas break. This house is even better than the pictures. The kitchen is amazing! The house is huge, even with 19 people it never felt tight. Everyday the Dads went snowboarding with the boys (it's very close to Welch Village and not too far from Afton Alps) and the Moms and younger kids stayed at the house. We had coffee, played games and prepped dinner for the evening. We have been going with this group for many years and we have stayed in hotels in the past...never again! This was a vacation for all of us whether we snowboarded or not. We went into town and got groceries the first night and I don't think I even left the house again until it was time to leave! Ken was more than great to work with. My son even left his wallet there and Ken found it and mailed it to us. There is only 1 bedroom with an ensuite bathroom so since there were 4 couples we drew for bedrooms. There are 3 other full bathrooms so it really wasn't an issue. Everyone had privacy. All four couples got their own bedroom (3 of the rooms have more than 1 bed so that was nice for the younger kids) all of the older boys stayed in the "bunk room" in the basement. There really was more than enough space for all of us. You will not be disappointed with this house. We can't wait to go back!

Beautiful House and Peaceful Setting

  • 5 of 5

A group of 5 couples rented this home in September for the weekend. The home is very nice and tastefully decorated. The house is very clean and well maintained. It was nice that each couple had their own bedroom and there were 4 bathrooms that had showers/bathtubs The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals and we used the gas grill that was provided in the evenings. The setting is very peaceful, there is plenty of space to play yard games, relax on a couple of the decks, sit around the fire pit, or relax in the hot tub. The guys enjoyed playing ping pong in the basement. We went to Red Wing to have lunch at Kelly's along the river on Saturday afternoon. It was less than a 10 minute drive to Red Wing. The owner of this property was very nice to work with and he provides a binder with information about the rental property. We hope to get back there again. We would highly recommend staying at this property!
