My Husband and I booked a stay at The Maiden Rock Inn for our 12 Yr Wedding Anniversary Weekend and we stayed in the Red Clay Room, The hosts here are so friendly and kind and accomodating, You can clearly see their love for the Arts and attention to detail thru out the Historic Property every direction you look there is something cool and well thought out and placed around the building. I had a broken foot and was in a boot and they were very accomodating and let us eat Breakfast in their Fireplace room on the same floor as our room. My husband walked up to the roof and got a photo of the view from there and is a really pretty view from there as well. Bed was very comfortable as were the chairs in our room and the clawfoot was beautiful we loved it and wished could take it home. Breakfast was great. And when we were getting stuff ready to check out we left our door open and their adorable little dog came in and camped out on the bed so we made a good friend. This is in a beautiful area of Wisconsin near Lake Pepin and is a very cool building with great hosts and is very comfortable. We would recommend it to anyone and if ever traveling that way again would love to be able to visit there again.

Maiden Rock Inn was our choice as our place to stay for 3 nights while experiencing the beauty and towns around Lake Pepin on a Harley trip with another couple. We were delighted and intrigued from the time we got there! Gary and Jennifer have created an amazing space to invite people into their home while sharing the talent that bubbles out from them. They are wonderful hosts, from Jennifer’s amazing breakfasts to Gary’s gift of welcoming and serving, not to mention their obedient and cute little dog, we felt very at home in their spacious gathering room where we enjoyed Gary’s album collection and played card games with our friends. We stayed in the Red Clay room and our friends stayed in the Sun Shower room, both so comfortable and delightful as they showcased Jennifer’s talent of ideas and decorating. It seemed like there was a surprise around every corner from the handcrafted stairs made by Gary, a master stair builder, to what they are doing together in their new Bergdahl Hall, we could have lost ourselves there for days! Meeting these two and enjoying their home has been a gift! ❤️

We had a great stay at the Maiden Rock Inn! It's truly impressive what they have done, taking an old schoolhouse and turning it into a unique and comfortable home away from home. It was fun to see the detail put into decorating the bedrooms and common areas. Even the bathroom had a fun surprise in the shower curtain. The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet. It would be worth going there just for the breakfast! Yum! Gary and Jennifer are terrific hosts and we would love to stay there again sometime.

My daughter and I spent the night at Maiden Rock Inn for a wedding in town. It’s amazing what the owners have done with the building! So many cool things to look at. In the morning, Gary put on our favorite record and they made us a wonderful breakfast. It was clean and comfortable. The owners thought of all the little extras as well. I would highly recommend and hope to come back with a group of friends.

We stayed there a bit ago and very much enjoyed the setting. The only thing that was disappointing was the dinner food for breakfast. Roasted meat, vegetables and a starch at 9:00 a.m. on a weekend morning is not what we were looking forward to. There were no food options for those who did not want supper for breakfast

We chose Maiden Rock Inn based on trip advisor ratings for the general Red Wing area, what a find!! This place was absolutely wonderful - the facility is lovingly restored with high tin ceilings, lots of windows as well as spa area for massage, sauna, and relaxation. As the other reviews said, Gary and Jennifer were gracious and accommodating hosts, doing everything they could to make us comfortable during our stay. At our request Gary gave us a tour and explained all the renovation work as well as sharing information about the Maiden Rock area. Jennifer is a gourmet cook, breakfast was healthy and delicious!! Even if you have no other reason to visit the area, Maiden Rock Inn itself is a wonderful destination.

My wife and I stayed just one night at the Maiden Rock Inn, a beautifully restored school house. We will most assuredly be back and hopefully for more than one night. Gary and Jennifer have poured their lives into restoring this old school house into an outstanding inn and then imbued it with their warm, welcoming hospitality . Gary is a retired stair builder and master woodworker and I think Jennifer is the interior designer and a creative force . Together they have created a gem that you should not miss. Gary took us on a tour and we were blown away...from the entrance and rooms themselves, to the gorgeous wooden spiral staircase, the sauna, the outdoor courtyard, to the game room...the quality and attention to detail is amazing. And, the breakfast was the best I have had at a B&B anywhere. We have stayed in many B&Bs over the years and this is the first time I have written a review, that is how impressed I was. Paul

We just popped over from St. Paul for a quick get away. We had a very large and nice room. Had a great chat with the owners in the evening and with the other couple over breakfast in the morning. They have done a great job of turning this old school into a B&B. It is worth the drive. Best dining is a short drive away in Red Wing.

My husband and I spent a night at the Maiden Rock Inn for what can only be described as one of our best stays ever! (This says a lot because we are huge travellers).

The Maiden Rock Inn was recommended to us by someone we met during our travels, so we decided to give it a chance. So happy that we did.

Jennifer and Gary are incredibly great hosts and immediately made us feel like we were at home. Jennifer gave us a tour through the property and it became immediately apparent that a lot of workmanship and skilled decorating, married with a great love of fine furniture and vibrant colours had taken place over the years.

The bedrooms all look like they belong in the pages of a decorators manual. We stayed in the "Aubergine" room, which was super comfortable, with a relaxed feel, yet it is so stylish and tastefully decorated that we could very easily have been shacked up with the Queen of England!

Our breakfast in the morning was indeed fit for royalty. Jennifer went to a lot of trouble and produced an amazingly tasteful organic meal. She explained everything about the meal and where the food source came from. The meal was healthy and filled with antioxidants, not to mention, it tasted great!

We loved our stay and will definitely return some day. I would highly recommend this place when you're traveling through, albeit at the risk of not being able to get a booking next time I pass through, due to its popularity!

Jen and Gary, thank you for such a wonderful stay and for your beautiful hospitality.

This is not your typical B and B.
The hosts are friendly and spend time with you, if desired.
When you walk up the stairs and look into the professional kitchen where Jennifer spends most of her time, you know this is going to be special.
The old school was slowly and meticulously turned into what it is today.
The rooms are lovely and a little quirky. Ours was full of kaleidoscopes.
A lounge was available for some complimentary wine which we shared with the hosts. Other public rooms offered a fireplace, ping pong, pool table.
The breakfast was lovingly prepared (took hours), presented and explained--not your ordinary spread-- DELICIOUS and polished off by the eight guests-- a full house.
We will certainly make a point to stay here again. Really glad Vino in the Valley listed it on their website for recommended lodging.
