By chance we called to see if they accepted small pets and they did. We were surprised at how lovely the room was. The staff was very nice and friendly. Beautiful view and loved the patio, sitting and looking at Lake Pepin. The room was quaint and comfortable. One of the best hotels we've stayed at. No complaints at all.... More

We would have rated the lodge very high since the room, #6, was great except the bed was very poor and we didn't sleep well. Location, size of room, kitchen, all very well done. Nice coffee fixings with a K-Cup device and several K-Cups for our use. Perfect place, except for the bed. Our friends had to take the "deluxe"... More

We stayed two nights with another couple. Outside is great, wonderful view of the lake. The room was OK but could use updating. Best thing was the nice big tiled shower-you could throw a party in there. The kitchenette was a different story. Small fridge and microwave, nice Keurig but it needed cleaning and NO water to use or clean... More

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!
