“Great Getaway!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at the Golden Lantern. We had a great stay! Sioux welcomed used and gave us a tour of the home, along with some of the history. We stayed in Meg’s room which was very spacious. I especially enjoyed the separate sitting area as well as the double whirlpool. The home has beautiful common areas that are relaxing to spend time in. We especially enjoyed the beautiful gardens. They even set up the outdoor fireplace if you want to build a fire. We hope to return!

Stayed September 2012, traveled as a couple

Sioux Christensen was very friendly and welcoming. The extra effort of little touches here and there made our stay quite enjoyable and we felt right at home. The special attention to food allergies for breakfast was also quite appreciated and tasty! Thank you for a great stay in a home with a lot of history.

My two sisters and I booked the Hideaway suite for a girls getaway weekend. It was a beautiful suite perfect for the three of us with a hide-a-bed in a small sitting area. Sioux was very welcoming and knowledgeable about the history of the home. The complimentary cookies and soft drinks were a welcome treat when we arrived. The breakfast in the morning was one of the best I've had at a B&B. The quiche, fruit and strawberry rhubarb dessert was amazing! fresh and warm! I will definately bring my husband next time. and recommend this B&B to anyone.

We were visiting Red Wing on a spur of the moment mini vacation and the Golden Lantern had rooms available. She suggested the whirpool suite which was amazing. The place itself was beautiful. The food was amazing and she even cooked for special diets as I don't eat meat. Red Wing is a great place to spend a weekend and I look forward to going back and staying there again. Hopefully this time the firepit will be available as it rained the first night we were there and so we chose to use the whirlpool instead which was still wonderful!

Room Tip: The whirpool suite is great for more than 2 people as is the daybed suite which doesn't have a w...

We booked the Hideaway room midweek (Mon-Tues) during the off season. We were the only guests during the cool, sunny days. Both Sioux Christensen, the Innkeeper, and the accomodations in the beautiful Tudor revival house were fantastic. Not only was Sioux gratious and pleasant to visit with (along with 3 cute little dogs that were very well behaved) but she is a marvelous cook, preparing tasty breakfasts served 9:00 AM sharp. The beautiful house (both inside and out), our spacious room (with fireplace and whirlpool) and the ambience (restfull and luxurious) provided us with a fantastic stay in Red Wing.

Room Tip: The 3rd floor Hideaway is the most spacious of the rooms and the most secluded.

We needed a weekend getaway to relax & chose Red Wing for its reputation as a noteworthy historic town on the Mississippi, & the possibility of viewing nesting eagles on a trip down the river. We were able to travel from Milwaukee by train, & the Golden Lantern was only blocks away from downtown & the train station.

We stayed in the Hideaway suite on the 3rd floor, it had everything one could wish for, fine linens, a whirlpool, soft fluffy robes & QUIET!!! The home is beautifully maintained throughout, & Sioux's friendly, gracious, yet unobtrusive hospitality is only outdone by her spectacular breakfasts. Having them delivered to our door was an added bonus.

We had a lovely time & would not hesitate to recommend the Golden Lantern to anyone wanting a special getaway. We'd love to see the gardens sometime later in the year.

Room Tip: From what we saw peeking into unoccupied rooms you could not go wrong with any, they all looked char...

My husband and I stayed in the Hideaway suite. Beautiful. The inn keeper, Souix was very welcoming. We had a great evening! Breakfast was also very good.

Room Tip: Hideaway is a Large Private Room. Very Nice.
