This is a large two story home built in the 1920s (2,600 Sq. ft.) and is as 'Dramatic' as its views of Lake Pepin. A complete remodel of this charming home was completed in the Spring of 2014. It now has all the charm and character (Coastal & Nautical) of our other vacation home rentals in Lake City. A new kitchen with stainless steel appliances, solid granite counter tops and a wonderful laundry/pantry just off the back of the kitchen. There is also a very unique Cafe area, a large family room and a lovely 3 season porch toward the back of the house. Two (2) newly remodeled full bathrooms with ceramic tile throughout, four (4) bedrooms (5 bedrooms when the beautiful barn door is pulled to convert the living room into a fifth bedroom). The living room is quite spacious and has lots of seating, an electric fireplace, a queen size leather sofa-bed and 'dramatic' views of Lake Pepin.

The home has four (4) HDTVs, 2 BlueRay DVDs, cable and wireless internet.

The large dining room is furnished with a custom made farmhouse table that comfortably seats 12 and also offers magnificent views of Lake Pepin and the Wisconsin bluffs across the way. There is a first floor bedroom with a king-sized bed. The remodeled kitchen features granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and a unique Café space off the kitchen with a pass thru counter between the Café and the kitchen. The Café features a counter high gathering table that seats 4. It's a great space for coffee, dining, games, cocktails and, of course, just hanging out. A large laundry room/pantry is just off the kitchen and has great additional storage for all those vacation goodies everyone brings on vacation.

Off the Café toward the rear of the home is a second large living space or 'family room' that features another large flat screen TV, lots of seating and a beamed ceiling. The family room also has a dramatic view of Lake Pepin with a second wonderful bow widow seat. Just off the family room is a very comfortable three season porch and off the other side of the family room is an attached, spacious two car garage.

Off the family room and kitchen is a nicely protected, large outside patiowith a European style pergola (summer of 2015), a fire pit, a stone wall, a pedestal lamp and lots of outside seating, plus a gas Weber grill.

It was perfect. We loved the house!

  • 5 of 5

The home is so perfect in so many ways. It's comfy, it's large, it's got lots of rooms, lots of tv's. My brother's family and mine thought it was perfect. We'll be back.

This is the BEST!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I and my family shared this beautiful home over the weekend of my daughter's wedding which was not too far away in Pepin. I could not have asked for a better venue. The house is immaculate, the owner's have thought of just about everything to make their guests comfortable (right down to a fully equipped updated kitchen), the beds were comfortable, and the views magnificent. We hope to come back in the near future!

Clean and pretty - spacious enough for 6 of us

  • 5 of 5

Six friends (in a Bunco club) take a fall getaway every year. I was the "host" for this year's trip and everyone was pleased with the house and location. We all got our own beds, though some of us shared rooms. Items were labeled and easy to find. We sat in the front yard and chatted until road traffic got too loud. We sat on the sun porch and knitted and played games. We sat in the front parlor and listened to music and did puzzles. We toured a winery on the 2nd day and enjoyed the drive along the river.

We will likely be back when it's my year to plan.

I am glad my kids weren't there because I would have worried about them breaking the nautical-themed decor. Very nice escape for adults, though, and quite roomy.

Fabulous accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

Girls weekend away and the house and Sharon met every possible need we could imagine! Very spacious, cozy and comfortable. This property is on the main road going through town however we did not find it to be a problem. Would love to come back in the summer to be outside and enjoy more lake views and walks!

About Sharon Hutchinson

We own and manage four (4) 'vacation rentals' in Lake City and this is our newest and largest Vacation Rental (sleeps 2 to 12). This home is so unique in so many ways and its decorating is consistent with our 'Coastal Style' of furnishings. While visiting Minnesota's South Shore you will feel as though you're experiencing a bit of New England's charm.

Sharon Hutchinson purchased this house in 2014

Why Sharon Hutchinson chose Lake City

Lake City is a very unique community and has the characteristics of a Seaside Community along the New England Coast. This spacious property is very much like a home you would find in the Coastal Northeast.

The home comfortably sleeps from two (2) to twelve (12) and is conveniently located to everything in Lake City. Downtown is within walking distance, and did I mention that its views of Lake Pepin are quite Dramatic?

What makes this house unique

Lots and lots of living & dining space. A large living room, a large family room, a Café off the kitchen and a dining room with a custom built farmhouse table that seats twelve (12). An attached two car garage and a lovely outdoor patio and grilling space.
