Charming cottage with a fantastic View.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage in Lake City from top to bottom. It had the home up north feel with several great spaces inside and a gorgeous view outside. Whether sitting around a fire or playing bags, the back yard provided plenty of space for our family to hang out and enjoy the view of the river. The host was very accommodating and ensured we had everything we needed! Great stay and we will definitely be back.

Back for our 3rd year!

  • 5 of 5

We love this cottage with a great view of Lake Pepin, and a comfortable outside patio from which to observe it. We stroll uptown and along the lake when we aren't relaxing. The grocery store is fine, and there are a number iof restaurants, and bars that serve food. We will be back next year!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was the perfect place to stay. It was clean and cozy. We enjoyed everything about it. Walking distance to the beach, & restaurants. The beds were very comfortable. We really liked that it had a fire pit available. We sat out back and watched the hang gliders and the boats go by. If we don't buy something in Lake City I plan on staying here again!

Nice cottage close to Lake Pepin - cute town too!

  • 5 of 5

Had a 2 night stay in late July at this charming cottage. Plenty of space for 2 people with a big kitchen, dining room and tv area. Only reason for us to go upstairs was to use the washer and dryer (nice to have!). Walked twice to area restaurants for breakfast and dinner. Drove along Rt. 61 to other cute towns along the river and had an overall pleasant stay.

This was our third time at the cottage. It was as perfect as ever. Great setting for family.

  • 5 of 5

The views from the cottage are amazing. The marina and downtown are very close by. Perfect location for a morning walk along the lakefront.

The cottage has all the vintage cottage charm you could want througout the house. Nancy is just the kindest owner.

Good restaurants in town and in Red Wing. We boat and jet ski too and the lake and views out on the water are some of if not the best in the country. I prefer Pepin over Lake Tahoe.

The built in patio fire pit is where we unwind every night visiting with the family, roasting Smores, and watching the nightlit barges travel up and down the Mississippi.

Lastly there are two other cottage homes nearby for rent, so if you have a large extended family you can rent all three (different owners) which we have done in the past.

We have bald eagles sitting in the big cotton wood tree that you can watch from the patio in the back yard. The downtown is within walking distance. Only one or two blocks away.

We are surrounded by golf courses, Lake Pepin, Lake City Marina and Frontenac State Park.
