I know this is a bit late in coming, and trip advisor didn't exist yet, but 20 years ago, we celebrated our honeymoon here and loved it! We were welcomed and treated like royalty as we were escorted up to the very top of this lovely B&B. Loved the privacy and quaintness of this place. The breakfast was amazing and... More

Celebrated out 21st anniversary and stayed here 3 nights in the Hideaway suite which was very spacious and clean. Enjoyed the fantastic breakfasts . . . also great coffee. Took in some of the sights such as Barn Bluff, the Art Show and the self directed winery tour on the Great American Highway long both sides of Lake Peppin. Highly... More

Nice rooms - stayed in Helen's suite. The extra room with a day bed was nice so I could wake up but not disturb my wife who likes to sleep in. Yummy plum tart and eggs Benedict. The back yard swing was great for enjoying the garden while we sipped some complimentary wine.

3 of us stayed in Helen's room. It had a separate sitting room with door to give the 3rd person privacy. That also was where the TV was and the balcony. The bathroom was small but clean and functional. A slight old odor, but not bad. They had coffee, tea and flavor packets for water in the hall. Also in... More

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights for our anniversary. From check-in to check-out, we could not have been more pleased. Sioux was a great host sharing info on the house, helping with golf reservations, and providing an excellent breakfast both days. We will definitely be back.

I stayed a couple nights at the Golden Lantern in Red Wing and it felt like home. The rooms were actually two rooms - a bedroom and a sitting room. They are well appointed, comfortable yet also elegant. The house is bright with all its windows and beautifully furnished with antiques. Breakfasts were delicious. I had a great stay.

I am sad to write this review as I genuinely do not do reviews. I felt obligated to do so because there are so many good reviews on this place that it was misleading. Upon arrival the first thing I noticed was a nasty order. And a dog at the door. We were only 15 early to check in and... More

Stayed one night. Warm greating at the door. Gave a little tour but not too much, just right. We stayed in Helen's room. Queen bed was a little lumpy, but not totally uncomfortable. Steating area with day bed and TV was nice. Also private balcony was nice in the morning (faces west, so no glaring morning sun). Breakfast was served... More

Everything was great. Comfortable, quiet, relaxing. A wonderful overnight stay for my wife and I's anniversary. Very close to downtown Redwing restaurants, shopping and the waterfront. The breakfast was outstanding. Free wifi and cable and a large library of movies, books, magazines, etc. A great retreat to relax and recharge, or use a base to explore the charming town of... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Golden Lantern Inn on three separate occasions. It's a perfect place to stay when enjoying quick one-night get-aways from visiting our son and his family in Minneapolis. We particularly like the little balcony off Helen's room--a perfect place to sip a glass of wine or read a good book. We love being... More
