My husband and I actually liked this B&Bt, however didn't like how close it was to the train. We didn't realize when everyone referred to the train in their reviews that the train was literally 20 yards from the house, so we were woken up several times each night by the train. We were also "forced" to eat breakfast upstairs.... More

We just celebrated our 40th anniversary and decided to go kayaking on the Mississippi River - Reads Landing was a perfect spot... The B&B was fantastic! Carol and Bill were such wonderful hosts ~ our room was perfect, we had the garden suite so were able to walk to the Brewery ... just down the street. Even though the train... More

We stayed with Bill and Carol last weekend. It was the first time we ever stayed at a B&B. It was absolutely wonderful!! The area attractions were many and we need to go back because we didn't have time to see them all. Bill and Carol were the nicest people we have met in our travels. The food was fabulous... More

My wife and I had a wonderful stay with Carol & Bill for a couple of days this Thanksgiving. The room was perfect with a comfortable bed and fireplace. The sitting room on the river side also gets warmed by the same fireplace and if you want to soak in the jacuzzi while enjoying the fire and the view, you... More

Bill and Carol made us feel like we were staying with family. They are very welcoming and a joy to visit with. We enjoyed our "treats" before breakfast while sitting in the front of our suite with a great view of Lake Pepin watching the barges, birds, boats and even the Queen of the Mississippi paddleboat go by. The breakfasts... More

I spent 2 days here in August in order to get some time away and work on a project. Carol and Bill create a very pleasant, hospitable atmosphere. I got in some good work time, enjoyed meals at River's Nest and at the Reed's Landing Brewpub and got a spectacular view of Lake Pepin. And it's near LARK Toys and... More

Bill and Carol are a lovely couple and know what true hospitality means..... We spent one night and needed to be up early the next morning. They were very flexible to our specific needs. The jacuzzi is excellent, a fireplace sits right next to it. The train was loud, yet we were not bothered by the many that passed as... More

Thank you Bill & carol for restoring my faith in bed & breakfasts. We arrived to a charming welcome & a beautifully maintained b & b and it only got better from there. The rooms are luxurious and quite easily compare with any 5star hotel. We were given a jacuzzi suite overlooking the mighty Mississippi River. Our breakfast consisted of... More

Bobbie Rae and I just happened to be traveling through the area and at the last minute ended up in the local pub. After a few beers we inquired about a nearby place to stay and were directed to Carol and Bill Dunns wonderful B&B The River Nest. We are so glad we found this place. Not only was the... More

This is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the beauty of the Mississippi in Minnesota. Bill and Carol are fun hosts that make me feel right at home =] Both suites are terrific. I would love to come back soon!
