“Debbie is a Rock Star!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

I just spent the weekend at the Pratt-Taber Inn in Red Wing with my kids. We had a fantastic time. Debbie was a fantastic host. She made life easy and that is exactly what we wanted. No hassles. The house is beautiful and the location is great. We like to walk and we walked through the downtown area both mornings of our stay. It is a cute downtown and the Pratt-Taber is right next door. Breakfast was delicious and we enjoyed the other guests as well. We all had a great time. I highly recommend the Pratt-Taber. I can hardly wait to get back and have breakfast with Debbie again.

Room Tip: We rented the Autumn room and the Winter room. The Autumn room is very warm and inviting with a que...

This was our second visit to the Pratt-Taber - and this time we brought family for a Christmas present. Debbie is a lovely host, and makes you feel so welcome. The wine and cheese at happy hour is a nice touch, and a great way to get to know the other guests and learn about the house. After we returned from dinner, Debbie had set out homemade brownies - a great end to the night! The house was nicely decorated for the holidays and the rooms are very comfortable. (The winter room was a little chilly until we figured out the space heater!) The breakfast was tasty - french toast, with berries and whipped cream, a side of bacon and apple-cheddar sausage.

Highly recommended!

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Pratt-Taber Inn this past weekend and will definitely be back, many times! I just might move in! :) It was such a wonderful experience, I didn't want to leave! The Inn is gorgeous and Deb is an AMAZING decorator! It was beautifully decorated for Christmas with three trees! We stayed in the winter room with a wonderfully comfortable king bed and a nice gas fireplace. We fell asleep to some serene CDs Deb had bedside and enjoyed silence for the remainder of the night. This Inn was so comfortable and welcoming that we spent a good amount of time in the living room visiting with Max, the AMAZINGLY adorable/lovable cat, and Deb. Deb is so open, funny, and welcoming. Oh, and she is a fantastic cook! I could not find one negative about this Inn! You will not be disappointed!!!

Room Tip: I saw all four of the rooms and they are all equally gorgeous! Can't go wrong with any of them!

My husband I booked a room in mid-October for a last minute mid-week getaway. Neither of us had stayed at a B&B before, and this exceeded our expectations! Deb was such a gracious host (and overall wonderful person to talk with), packing a picnic basket for us when we were heading out for dinner, and brownies and treats were always available. The Inn was clean, well appointed, and cozy. We stayed in the Autumn room, which was spacious and very comfortable. Breakfast the next morning was delicious (the blueberry scones in particular), and who can complain about dessert with breakfast?! Max was also one of the sweetest cats. We hope to stay again!

The Inn has been beautifully restored with cool taste and lovin' care---you feel it imediatly. Every room has it's own vibe, and they are all excellant. This place is just special. We've experienced Napa to New England and enjoyed them all, but this experience is a notch above. Plus she has a great cat...Max. He too is quite unusual.

Debbie the owner made us feel so welcome it was a pleasure. She also makes the best brownies and the most amazing breakfast as well. She really is quite a wonder. Next time we go to Redwing we will stay there again, and probably take Debbie to dinner with us, she's so fun!.

Room Tip: Just don't miss it if you are in the area. Nosh is a great restaurant 15 min. away in Lake City

This cozy B & B occupies a wonderfully restored late 19th Century brick house near the heart of Red Wing, MN, just an hour’s drive from the Twin Cities. Each of the four rooms has a fireplace and is tastefully decorated with furnishings of the period. Our room (“L’automne”) was spacious with several comfortable chairs and ample storage for our clothes. The en suite bathroom had a deep claw-foot tub and was supplied with handmade soaps. Deb, the proprietress, provides thoughtful touches throughout the day -- coffee outside our room in the morning, homemade super-chocolaty brownies, and Friday evening wine and cheese, hosted by Deb and her companion, Max. Breakfasts were substantial, healthful and delicious. Deb was always nearby, willing to refill your coffee cup and add to the conversation.

These features alone allow us to rate the Pratt-Tabor Inn a five-star experience, but over and above all this is Deb’s open, friendly nature that enhanced our experience even more. Then there is Max the cat who literally lives up to his name -- he’s a BIG boy with a wonderful friendly personality who likes any attention that guests give him. Even if you aren’t a cat person, Max will win you over.

The Pratt-Tabor is a perfect place to spend the weekend. We are looking forward to another visit.

We stayed with the Pratt-Taber Inn the first weekend in November. Never having stayed with a Bed and Breakfast before we didn't go in with any expecations. With that said, Debra exceeded what I hoped for with a gorgeously decorated home, absolutely gourmet breakfast (spoiler for those that haven't been: there was a dessert portion to each breakfast), and an incredibly inviting setup with bottled water, wine glasses and brownies available at any time of the day. Waking up in the morning, Debra had fresh coffee made and available to the guests with needing to disturb anyone.

The rooms were exquisite. Decorated in the seasons and with our room being of the winter theme, I didn't think to expect so much warmth. The bed ended up being one of the most comfortable sleeping experiences of recent memory. One of the blankets was so comfortable, my girlfriend insisted Debra tell us where she purchased it and we tracked it down the next day.

As you can imagine, I am a fan and the only critique I can think of is to make the apple pie we had for the first breakfast available at all times. It was way too good to only have once.

Room Tip: We didn't try the others, but thoroughly enjoyed the winter room with an exceptionally comfortab...
