My husband and I recently celebrated our 10th anniversary here. The innkeepers, Zig and Lynette, warmly welcomed us. They had wine , cheese and crackers to enjoy when we arrived. The three course breakfasts are made from scratch and elegantly presented. The food was so delicious. I've never had such wonderful breakfasts in my life before. It was fun to... More

You'll marvel at the lovely original woodwork high ceilings and other orginal features of this home. Upon checking in, you are treated to complimentary wine, chees and crackers. Morning brings a 3 course breakfast, prepared from scratch onsite, nothing is catered in. We just... More

One of the few bed & breakfast locations in Red Wing, this home is in need of some TLC. The woodwork is beautiful and original, with only minimal updating necessary. The rooms are quaint and almost virtually 'for show' and not for use. We found our bed in the Heritage Room to be, well, in need of replacement. The mattress... More

My husband and I were surprised by complimentary wine, cheese, meat, and crackers upon our arrival. We stayed in the Heritage Room for one night. I wish we had booked two nights.

Romantic weekend getaway, our room was amazing and the food is five star. Wish we could of stayed longer. The whirlpool for two was so relaxing, the home is beautiful. The innkeepers are very well versed in what they do and it was a pleasant experience.
