About Bill & Patty Moe

The original house was built in 1984, additions were added on in later years. Patty raised her two children in this house and they graduated from Lanesboro. Patty grew up in the surrounding area and went to school in Rushford. She currently lives right next door on the adjoining property with her husband Bill. Bill is originally from Somerset, WI, but when he came down here he loved the area, moved here and his two boys graduated from Rushford. Patty and Bill have been business owners together for 20 years. They both enjoy meeting new people and would welcome you to their vacation property. Doggy Day Care is also close by and owned by Patty.

Bill & Patty Moe purchased this house in 1984

Why Bill & Patty Moe chose Peterson

Love the area, wouldn't trade it for the world!!

What makes this house unique

The river is so close, you can visit it many times a day. Just being outside, walking on the river trails, sitting in the water, tubing or canoeing, even camping if you want. We just love to see the eagles fly up and down the river every day. The house is convenient, quite and you can drive to Rochester, Winona or LaCrosse within a hours time or less. This is the COUNTRY, enjoy TALKING to your friends and family (not texting), and playing games or reading if you like.

Lanesboro #773712

  • 1 of 5

Our stay was not very good. The "Barracks" has such a terrible musty smell even though the dehumidifier ran all the time and had to be emptied several times a day. The 3 gals that were supposed to sleep down there ended up sleeping on the couch in the living room and 1 on the floor. The futons on the lower level was hard and very uncomfortable with no support. The bathroom on the lower level needs work, very small for ladies use. No one wanted to take a shower in it.Very poor lighting over the dining room table. We had a hard playing card games. There was No DVD player as stated. Overall, we were pretty unhappy with the whole place. Needless to say we won't be staying at Lanesboro #773712 again.

This is not the view from any place of this property.

  • 2 of 5

Overpriced for the service and location. The lower level was not usable due to the mold smell, the sheets and towels smelled moldy.

Great acreage, river side escape.

  • 5 of 5

A large yard and great fire pit area. The house was spacious and had an great party room. The guys and I enjoyed all parts of the stay. We went to Winona for a night to enjoy the night-life, and spent the other night by the fire. Swimming in the river was a great addition.

I would like to come back!

Lots of space & beautiful scenery!!

  • 4 of 5

This was the perfect home for our annual girls weekend!! There was a bed for each of us to comfortably sleep, and plenty of lounge areas, kitchen space & BATHROOMS!!!! The owners were super accommodating as we had a couple very minor issues, they resolved immediately!

Please note that if you are planning to walk the path to the river, you will want to pack minimally!

Enjoy your stay!!!

Clean & Room for All

  • 3 of 5

Lots of room & privacy.

Nice fire pit.

Above the river. The Root River is about a 1/4 mile walk down a steep hill, from the house.

It's across the river from the bike trail, so we had to drive either to Whalen or Peterson to bike.

Barking, howling dogs in the distance. Well stocked kitchen. Nice back deck for outdoor dinners.
