Our group stayed in three of the rooms. Each was unique and all were fabulous. The Hideaway on the top floor is spacious, quiet, and secluded. A smaller room next door makes this a great spot for a ladies getaway as well. Meg's Room has two bathrooms, a nice sized bedroom with jacuzzi, and a sitting room with fireplace. The... More

My husband & I took an overnight bike riding trip this past weekend. Upon arriving, we were pleased with the welcoming curb appeal of the Golden Lantern. The owner cheerfully greeted us at the door and helped us bring our bikes to store in the garage. Back at the house, we were given a brief history and tour of the... More

This is our 2nd trip to Red Wing and our first to the Golden Lantern. Innkeeper Sue runs a nice quiet large Depression era guest house a short walk from downtown and the River. She serves a tasty breakfast and the grounds are a great place to relax. We will definitely come here again when we want to escape from... More

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

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
