Wow! So we finally as the newest owners since June 12th, 2015, hosted our first wedding in the house with just over 50 people in attendance. Must I say, wedding planners and venues, I give you credit as hosting a wedding big or small is no small feat!! We did it with the help of a small crew and the...

What can I say besides, we look forward to more laughter upon your return! You ladies sure did making ironing sheets in the kitchen a hoot of a time. The cupcake eating pictures still make me laugh and our beloved "I want my MTV" video is hysterical, well at least to me. Hugs my new and lasting friend, until we...

My girlfriend surprised me with a weekend getaway to Turning Waters Bed and Breakfast this past weekend (May 5-6,2016).

My husband and I recently traveled from Oklahoma to visit, and opted to stay at Turning Waters B&B. It was such a wonderful experience!!! The house is lovely, inside and out. It is beautifully decorated, but still evokes a comfortable make-yourself-at-home feeling. We stayed in the Prairie Room, and absolutely loved our room and private bathroom! The hosts were charming,...

Celebrated our Anniversary in Wabasha last weekend and stayed at Turning Waters. There is lots of great recreation in the area. We biked the Cannon Valley Trial from Red Wing to Welch and had an awesome breakfast at the Trout Stream Cafe then back to Red Wing which is a nice 20 mile round trip ride.

This was, by far, our best B&B experience ever! My wife and I took her father for an over-night sight-seeing trip to the area, and our stay at Turning Waters was the highlight of a wonderful trip.

Thank you! I told my hubby that if he got a review specific to him, he would get a bonus. Well the bonus is I am taking him to a B&B in Milwaukee and exploring all the new breweries so we can learn more for when we open our brewery on the premises in Summer 2016. He is a wonderful...

The owners of Turning Waters go above and beyond to make sure their guests have a great stay. We've been to many B&B's over the years and this one definitely stands out above the rest! As a side note - if you are into the craft beer scene like we are, you have to meet Brenda and Ford. :)
