Guestbook comments from the owner

This well-stocked cottage is a real gem!





Our family of 6 adults decided to gather here for a weekend-long Christmas celebration. We found the clean, comfortable space perfect for relaxing, reading, preparing all our meals, sitting by the fire, playing games, etc.





Chuck was easy to work with and quick to answer questions and make recommendations leading up to our stay.





As for area attractions, we'd highly recommend a trip to the National Eagle Center in Wabasha...

Fantastic Get Away!

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a nice quiet place to stay with access to the Mississippi River and golfing with 15 minutes each way, this is the place for you. We had an excellent stay for 4 golfers. This is a great location for Spring, Summer or Fall if you are looking to enjoy the outdoors and spend some time on the water. Bring your golf clubs and a boat and you will not be disappointed. Communication with the owner is easy and I would recommend this location to anyone.

Small Group Retreat

  • 5 of 5
My small group was looking for a nice, cozy location for us to end our year on a retreat. Our main searching criteria was a location with many rooms, multiple bathrooms and a full kitchen. The cottage fit the bill perfectly! The three bedrooms were just the right amount for our group, offering sleeping options and personal space for our group. The deck and outdoor grill made for a pleasant evening of laughter and reminiscing of that season's fun and events. Having a full kitchen was perfect for our budget conscious group allowing us many options to prepare our own meals. The location was also ideal as the Red Wing area offered us many options in shopping, hiking, and dining. Overall, it was a delightful weekend that the whole group enjoyed greatly! We hope to return again in future small group seasons.

Family weekend

  • 5 of 5
Although I had a bit of a concern because of previous reviews mentioning the beds, and they were perhaps not the most comfortable upstairs; after all is said and done, we hope to visit again. We rented for our adult family of eight and it was wonderful. The cabin is beautiful, everything we needed for the weekend. Having coffee in the sunroom was the best! Cross country skiing nearby at Frontenac State Park and Cannon Valley Trail, Lake Pepin within walking distance – lots of ice fishing. Cabin is located in a pretty little neighborhood. We stopped for the ‘all you can eat’ first fry at a little diner in town before we got to the cabin, and the food was great. I’m so hoping to visit during another season as well. Thank you!

Family gathering

  • 5 of 5
A perfect spot to meet up with family from Northfield and LaCrosse. Excellent location with golf, state park, and Mississippi River all very close. Old Frontenac is a peaceful town for walking with some beautiful old estates to admire. Enjoyed the field right across from the cottage for sports activities and really enjoyed taking a dip in the Mississippi which is only a short walk away. The cottage is upgraded in a pleasant decor and has all that one needs to be comfortable. A local neighbor recommended the Harbor View Cafe in Pepin and it was delicious. Apparently there can be long lines for dinner, but we got served right away for lunch. We would strongly recommend this place for a peaceful get away with fun nearby.

Location

From the Owner

Both my wife and I grew up in south eastern Minnesota and where very familiar with the area. When the time was right to purchase a vacation property we only looked in one area. The cottage is located in the Historic District of Old Frontenac. Nestled amongst the river bluffs you can’t help but relax as you enter this historic village that remains as cozy and quaint today as it was 150 years ago. Walk or bike through this beautiful setting and you will enjoy scenic views of Lake Pepin, historic homes and park like yards.
