I would highly recommend staying here when in Wabasha. We planned on spending one night on the Mississippi before heading to the Twin Cities the next day. We certainly had an enjoyable stay. Upon our early afternoon arrival, owners Bill & Carol steered us to tour the Eagle Observatory in town. We were not disappointed...we were fortunate to catch a live eagle "show", which was amazing. Our downstairs room was spotless , with luxurious bedding and towels. It had a neat windowed sitting room in front where we could watch the fast moving trains go by. Surprisingly, listening to their sounds as they passed was quite relaxing, though it may bother some individuals. One hour prior to breakfast, we had a knock at the door to find a tray with a pot of coffee and homemade delicious scones (unlike any others I've tasted.) The breakfast was also all homemade and plentiful, consisting of a total of five courses. Before leaving, Carol took our photo and emailed it to us, which was a nice personal touch.
