Stayed for one night July 15, while on a recent Daddy - daughter trip touring Little House on the Prairie sites in WI, MN and SD.
This is a very nice Inn. The home is beautiful. The hosts were very kind. We enjoyed our room which was upstairs in the front of the house with a private balcony and nice view. Our bathroom and shower were in the room. The bed was comfy.
There was a game room and free beverages to enjoy in the evening.
Our breakfast from Dick was yummy and hearty.
Pepin has it's charm. It is a small town that was shut down in the evening on a Thursday night. We found a nice meal at The Pickle Factory. We walked by the lake and through the marina area.
The Ingalls homestead is a gorgeous 7 mile drive from town. The drive from MSP was very pretty as well.
The only downside is one that you can't really avoid if you stay anywhere in Pepin. The trains run all night and often and they sound their horns at every pass through. Ugh.
Overall a great place to stay and a good value.
