The B&B was warm and inviting. Beds were very comfy and breakfast was delicious! House is very beautiful inside and out. Highly recommend anyone looking for a weekend get away. Owners were friendly and very accommodating.

I have never stayed in a B & B before, always a hotel room for privacy. However, I enjoyed this experience so much that I will definitely visit another one again. Turning Waters is a beautiful B & B and I am looking forward to visiting them again soon!

Wow, we can't even begin to describe how WONDERFUL our stay was here at the Turning Waters Bed, Breakfast, and Adventure! When we picked a B & B in Wabasha, we weren't sure what to expect.

Soft linens and very comfortable beds. Now, for ambience. The hostess, Brenda, has created the most friendly, warm, and soothing place. She is also a massage therapist!!! The breakfast is...

Our first visit to "Turning Waters" WON'T be our last! What a treasure! This B & B has many comfy areas (including a wrap-around front porch) for reading, relaxing, & meeting fellow-guests.) The 5-course breakfasts are amazing & delicious. Brenda (the very personable, "new since June" co-owner) is the "Turning Waters" greatest asset! She's anticipated every single need a guest...
