“A great get-a-way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

My husband blindly booked this online, and luckily for both of us, the B & B gods were smiling on us. Deb shares her beautiful, painstakingly restored home with gracious aplomb. We were greeted warmly and immediately found ourselves unwinding with a glass of wine on the porch. Our room was formerly the maid's quarters, probably a bit smaller than the other rooms, but plenty of space, and beautifully appointed. The bathroom was huge, with a soaking tub option. Breakfast was a treat for foodies, but non-threatening to people who just like the basics. Delicious. Easy walking distance to the river and downtown. I would go back in a heartbeat.

It is difficult to find new descriptors for the Pratt Taber or for the owner/hostess. We found our overnigiht to be extremely relaxing. Deb has a dresser in the upstairs hallway with trail mix and that evening some brownies. In the fridge she keeps bottled water on hand for guests. Mornings a pot of coffee will appear at 8 am with a scrumptious breakfast downstairs at 9 am. That evening we had planned that upon return from our dinner we would go back out for drinks. One look at the front screened in porch had us out buying wine to enjoy while people watching and enjoying the summer's evening. Out came Deb with a plate of brownies for us to enjoy with the wine. In the morning we took our coffee out to the porch where fellow guests eventually joined us. Max, the adopted Rag Doll cat, is a bonus with his mellow demeanor and large frame. Within fifteen minutes there is hiking/walking at Frontenac State Park, wandering in downtown Red Wing or crossing the river and driving the Wisconsin River Road through eclectic small towns.

I've stayed in a few B&Bs-and I'm always a little hesitant in what to expect. This was an unforgettable experience! I stayed in the Spring room which was very delightful and complete with a claw foot tub/shower! The owner was so pleasant and helpful and even served fresh, hot brownies before bed. The breakfast was first rate-a true gourmet experience! I highly recommend a trip to Red Wing with a stay at Pratt-Taber Inn!

Wondeful B&B located in beautiful Red Wing, MN on the Mississippi River. Beautifully decorated period house within walking dstance to downtown Red Wing with the St. James Hotel and Sheldon Theater as attractions. Our hostess, Deb, was so personable and very knowledgeable about the history of the house she has lovingly restored. Delicious night time treats, morning coffee and tasty breakfasts. My friend and I spent 2 nights there as a gift from my son and daughter-in-law and couldn't have asked for a better gift. Thank you, Deb, for a wonderful experience.

Room Tip: Four rooms to choose from: winter, spring, summer, fall each wih their own distinctive decor.

We spent a night at the Pratt-Taber Inn on a weekend trip from the Twin Cities. We chose the Inn based on the reviews, and we were not disappointed. Deb was a great hostess, cooked a fantastic breakfast, and gave us great advice on things to do and restaurants to visit in the area. All of this for what felt like a very fair price.

We just had the most pleasant stay at the Pratt-Taber Inn! The Inn itself is so charming in it's History and so full of character. Deb, our Host was so gracious and welcoming. Her eye for detail adds to the ambience in every room.From warm brownies to a wonderful breakfast we felt so comfortable and right at home.We will definately be back!
