“Okay, but expected more”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2010

I've stayed at many B&Bs across the Midwest and this one falls in the middle of the pack. I expected a lot more after reading the reviews on this site. The house is gorgeous and immaculately maintained. The rooms were a great size and the baths were amazing. However, I was disappointed by the breakfast. It was just really average. For example, the "fruit plate" was sliced banana and sections of a clementine. It seemed like no effort went into the presentation or design of the meal. Also, it was surprisingly noisy. Our room was at the top of the stairs and we heard every guest come and go. You could hear full conversations people were having outside of our door very late into the night. Overall, it was just okay. I'll probably try somewhere else next time.

My husband and I were celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary and decided to book a stay at the Moondance Inn.
We were thrilled with our choice of stay. EVERYTHING was 5 stars. The Inn was beautiful and well kept, the rooms were a perfect size, the price was comparable to most , the owners were visible and always willing to give us ideas on what to do in town, the food they made was FABULOUS!!
We would highly recommend the Moon dance Inn. We know we will be back to enjoy this superb place again!!

The Moodance Inn is absolutely spectacular, it felt like we had walked back in time. Mike and Chris have poured their hearts into this project, and the attention to detail is obvious is every inch of the Inn. The food was wonderful, as was the conversation and every other aspect of our trip.

We found a place where we could relax, we were given the gift of time and peace. There were many cute and cosy sitting spots, we felt at home at all times, bed was super comfortable, bath tubs are outstanding... breakfast absolutely perfect and Mike was everything one can expect from a host. He even asked if we wanted to be introduced to his dogs!!! (In some places they just jump on you, here Della and Trouble are nothing but a couple of sweet babies in fur coats and you will see them only if you so request).
In a nutshell: the perfect place with the most detailed service, excellent.

Chris and Mike , the owners and hosts, have done a superb job of decorating the Inn. Each room is decorated with its own theme--we stayed in the King's room with its four poster bed and suit of armor standing guard outside the door. Both Mike and Chris are wonderful hosts. They are friendly, welcoming, and great cooks. The breakfast dishes were both imaginative and tasty. And their two dogs (Pooleys) love to play. Red Wing itself was a pleasant surprise. It has a real downtown by the Mississippi that is made for walking. It has fun shops (like the Uffda store), the Redwing boot museum (a must see), and some outstanding restaurants. This was a fun trip.

This was our second trip to this unique B & B, and we took advantagae of the wonderful New Year's weekend package. Even in the cold of Winter this place is warm and welcoming. The rooms, with amazing linens on the bed, were everything that we could want to ward off the Minnesota cold. It was 20 below the morning we left! Because this was a special weekend, we had a spread of appitizers in the dining room before we went out to dinner on New Year's Eve, and the breakfasts are exceptional. No rolls and coffee here, but instead a huge hot breakfast with lots of extras.

Redwing itself is a most interesting old Mississippi River town, and Moondance is part of the local history. The inn keepers have maintained the grand style that the original owners intended, and they can share many stories about the history of the town and the home.

If you travel to Red Wing you must stay here. You will have a wonderful time at Moondance.

This was our first experience at a Bed and Breakfast and it will be hard to top. The house and rooms were charming and made for a special weekend. The Queen's room that we stayed in was well kept and romantic. The owners were friendly and accommodating and gave us great advice for dinner and entertainment in town. The lit Christmas tree, crackling fire place, nice music, and tasty h'orderves contributed to the inviting sitting room. What made this experience memorable was the hospitality of Mike and Chris, which included their fabulous breakfasts and fun conversions. Them and the overall charm and loveliness of the Moondance Inn will lead us to a future visit.
