Everything was great. Comfortable, quiet, relaxing. A wonderful overnight stay for my wife and I's anniversary. Very close to downtown Redwing restaurants, shopping and the waterfront. The breakfast was outstanding. Free wifi and cable and a large library of movies, books, magazines, etc. A great retreat to relax and recharge, or use a base to explore the charming town of... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Golden Lantern Inn on three separate occasions. It's a perfect place to stay when enjoying quick one-night get-aways from visiting our son and his family in Minneapolis. We particularly like the little balcony off Helen's room--a perfect place to sip a glass of wine or read a good book. We love being... More

Not sure how this woman or Inn gets 4.5 or 5 stars. This is one of the worse Inn experiences due to lack of hospitality and we were guests not welcomed. I never write these reviews but since I am in Customer Service roles for work this Needs to be documented. So sad, this was a mother daughter weekend to... More

We stayed at the Golden Lantern Inn for one night during June of 2015. The Inn is beautiful and we loved learning about the history. Our room was also nice, but we were frustrated when we went to run the whirlpool tub and there was a considerable amount of rust colored flakes. We paid a bit more to have access... More

Sioux was amazing from start to finish and the property was fantastic. We loved every minute of our stay and Sioux had perfect recommendations for us too. Thanks for everything, and we look forward to seeing you again on our next return!!

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about the Inn. My husband and I spent a long weekend in Red Wing and stayed in Helen's Room... From the fresh baked cookies, appetizers and wine everyday to our very cozy room we could not have been more pleased. We opted for our homemade breakfast in our room each day, that... More

The Golden Lantern is a very nice B&B, within walking distance of downtown Red Wing with shops and restaurants. The house is beautiful, with amazing woodwork and comfortable rooms. Sioux is a gracious host who provides a nice introduction and tour of the home when you arrive. You will also find wine and appetizers when you arrive, a great way... More

My boyfriend and I traveled here recently for our anniversary, and it was amazing! It was cozy and relaxing, we had a fireplace and hot tub. I wasn't sure what to expect, but this quaint spot definitely exceeded our expectations! I will definitely be back. We thought it might be fun to try to stay in every room of the... More

We love staying at the Golden Lantern. It has everything you could want from history, service and a welcoming host. The wine/cheese and cookies offered upon arrival hit the spot after a day of travel. In the morning you are sent off with a fabulous breakfast! In between, you can rest and enjoy your room and its' amenities or sight... More

My wife and I stayed over Labor Day weekend at the Golden Lantern In. And absolutely loved it! We joked with the owner that all the other B&Bs would have a tough time living up to hers! Seriously, the house was well cared for, the whole place clean and comfortable, and the attention to detail and service were top-notch. I... More
