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

Comfortable bed. Beautiful backyard with an inviting fireplace. Delicious breakfast of perfect portions. Friendly but not too friendly owner and staff. Enjoy the balcony of Helen's suite for a private outdoor space. A bit creaky in the hallways but to be expected in a beautiful old home. Mollie

My Husband and I wanted a quiet and relaxing start to our honeymoon and this was just right! Breakfast was delivered to our room the first morning which was great! The only downside was that our room was not equipped with a shower, only a Jacuzzi tub, which was fine as we weren't on any type of strict schedule. It... More

My partner and I wanted to stay at a B&B that is LGBTQ friendly and Golden Lantern Inn popped up in our searches. We felt very comfortable right away and relaxed during our short but enjoyable stay. The breakfast was VERY tasty and they remembered my partner's gluten free request. We will definitely be coming back in the future!

I made reservations at the Golden Lantern Inn for a romantic birthday getaway. We stayed in JR's Suite and absolutely loved the room and the service. There was plenty of room in the suite and the Jacuzzi tub was big enough for two. When we first arrived there was wine and hors d'oeuvres available and Sioux provided a very interesting... More

My husband and I celebrated our 23rd anniversary here. We stayed in Meg's Suite. It was beautiful, as was the whole house. The hostess was very kind, the breakfast was delicious, the bed was comfy, the whirlpool was great, etc.. It was a delightful trip!

My husband and I just stayed recently and was our first stay at a B&B. We loved the house and the room, we stayed in Lety's room, small but the jacuzzi tub was great. We had a good view of the garden area and fireplace. It was quiet and relaxing just what we where looking for. She had great snacks... More

My wife and I stayed here for our second anniversary. We stayed in Meg's Suite and it was a great corner room with a nice view of the garden area. Everything from the friendly and helpful staff to all the extras like baked goods, wine, and the wonderful garden area with a fireplace make this B&B stand out. The whirlpool... More
