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.

We stayed in unit 1. Very nice unit overlooking the lake. Beautiful in October. No issues. Can be noisy, walls are thin but overall we were very happy. Great service, we asked for extra towels and got right away. Book early for better units. Some units are pet friendly too, not unit 1.

Really a surprise as I was originally trying to book at another venue in Lake City. There were three of us and had two rooms next to each other on the ground floor. Both were very clean and well kept. Not fancy by any means but they had everything we needed and more. The property is directly across from Lake... More

We really enjoyed our stay in one of the suites. My husband especially enjoyed the Jacuzzi. Appreciated having a mini kitchen including a refrigerator in the room. The staff was wonderful. Beautiful view of the sunrises on Lake Pepin. Highly recommend!
