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

I booked the Golden Lantern because my friend grew up in this house. Leta's room was her room. I was not expecting such a charming environment with such an elegant breakfast. The present owner tells you the history of the house and makes her guests feel welcome and appreciated throughout their stay. I recommend the Golden Lantern to anyone visiting... More

Stayed in Leta's room for a night because my boyfriend and I were going to a wedding in Red Wing. Sioux is delightful, the breakfast was amazing (fruit parfait, raspberry stuffed french toast and an asparagus & bacon frittata), I was actually surprised at how large the room was (it looked like a closet online) and the 2-person jacuzzi in...

My husband and I boated to Red Wing on a Mississippi River fishing adventure. We decided to stay at the Golden Lantern because it was off the beaten path. We were very pleased with the Inn's location (a 7 block hike up from the river's edge). It was very comfortable and quiet. Sioux greeted us with a short tour and... More
