We ended up here, by chance, after having car problems, being towed to Lake City, and in need of pet friendly lodging for the night. Found the staff to be friendly and helpful, the accommodations to be warm, rustic, and nicer than expected for a reasonable price. We booked a standard room which included 2 beds, small refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker,... More

We stayed in Suite #1 for two nights and had a fantastic experience. Super clean, very spacious and fully equipped. Our suite was quiet, private and had a lovely view of the lake. The jacuzzi and fireplace were a nice touch. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. Would absolutely stay here again!

Great room, Awesome price. So much room and a beautiful view. My husband and I went here for our 2 year anniversary and it was perfect. The tub was so big and comfy that both of us almost fell asleep in it. The bed was so Comfy.

Was here for three nights while taking a sailing class on Pepin through Gem Sailing School. Room was spotless and had new furnishings. Design is sort of Alaskan log cabin but seems pretty new. Note that this is a classic motel and the road lies between motel and lake so there is some road noise. But all in all room... More

You cannot beat the location of this hotel if you want to spend time in Lake City, or Red Wing or Wabasha or the towns on the Wisconsin side of this area (Pepin, Maiden Rock). The room was spacious, the bed was super comfortable. The TV is in an awkward place, so you have to turn it to watch from... More

I love this place! We live in Red wing and visit often in the winter to get away. very clean and relaxing. We visit alaska every year, and look at the travel info...while we fly and drive, the tours look great if you're into a hostage situation!

My husband and I came here for a romantic getaway, and this exceeded our expectations! The superior suite is beautiful! Fireplace, kitchen, huge whirlpool tub and large walk-in shower! The view of the lake from the front window is gorgeous! You really can't find a better deal than this! We plan on going every year!

One of my favorite romantic getaways . The rooms are great especially the one with fireplace/ jacuzzi. Love the log cabin look and feel. Kitchenette was great for making snacks and coffee but not much else. Several great restaurants in town that range from gourmet to burgers. Great sites for bald eagle watching especially in winter. Can't wait to go... More

What a GREAT place to stay in small town America on the Mississippi River. We had a Family Christmas gathering stayed for 6 days. The room #1 that we stayed in was very clean, spacious and interior wood finished like the inside of a Alaskan deep woods cabin. Whirlpool bathtub worked well and furniture looked almost new. Could have used... More

Nice to stay at a place that wasn't a chain establishment, good location. There is road noise but you will find that wherever you stay along the river. Liked the bathroom layout, drive right up to our room. All around great experience.
