Some of our guest's comments about their stay at TansyHus:
"Our stay at TansyHus was fantastic. It is a beautiful place. We were all impressed with how well it was prepared for visitors, especially the kids. The box of toys and games were a huge hit. Thanks for making everything so smooth." Lewis & Lisa
"We sent the dogs to the kennel so that we could truly RELAX! I think we are onto a new tradition." Shannon
"I and my book club had a delightful stay at TansyHus. We will be
back...breathtaking setting." Pat D.  "My friend's 40 BD was an event to remember.  We started the day on Saturday with Swedish pancakes at Bogus Cafe, followed by a relaxing visit to the Spa just down the hill.  We were so relaxed that it just seemed like too much work to drive even 5 miles for dinner.  We brought in dinner, a fabulous bar-b-que main dish with a fresh salad, from Bogus just down the hill.  This is going to be an annual event for us."  Lisa B.

traveler reviews for this stockholm house rental

Delightful Stay

Review submitted: July 31, 2014   Date of arrival: July 28, 2014

We enjoyed a delightful stay at TansyHus in the village of Stockholm. The house is very well appointed and stocked with every possible convenience. The house sits high on the hill from downtown Stockholm so it is very quiet and removed from the trains and tourist bustle but close enough to walk for a coffee or drink. The nearby "WI pizza farm" (google it) is a unique experience and is not to be missed. We will definitely visit again.

Recommended for: age 55+, girls getaway, pet-friendly, sight seeing, romantic getaway

4th of July stay with family

Review submitted: July 9, 2013   Date of arrival: July 4, 2013

Tansy Hus is a great destination for enjoying the Wisconsin side of the Mississippi. Stockholm is a tiny but vibrant and interesting town, and Tansy Hus sits right off the main drag. The house is comfortably updated with plenty of room to move around-- we used it as a hangout place as family and friends came to visit in the area and everyone enjoyed the charm and modern amenities. The owner, Sandra, is easily reachable for questions/concerns and took care of everything we needed during our stay. Highly recommend Tansy Hus for family get-togethers and as a jumping-off point for enjoying this part of WI!

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children

Owners response: The TansyHus in the tiny Village of Stockholm is ideal for several generations. There is ample space and bedroom privacy for all. The generous dining room adjacent to the well stocked kitchen and sitting room offers a place to gather. There is great access to Lake Pepin within an easy walk from the front door. For visitors eager to get out on the water, a sail boat rental from the Marina in Pepin is suggested. The Lake is beautiful with rolling bluffs and vistas to the Minnesota shoreline.

Couldn't have been more perfect!

Review submitted: May 21, 2013   Date of arrival: May 17, 2013

Eight of us stayed at TansyHus for a girlfriends' weekend. Turned out that we picked the weekend of the annual Fresh Art Tour, which made it all the better! We were all so at home here! The house was well beyond our expectations, and immaculately clean and homey. Sandra has thought of every detail. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at TansyHus and had a wonderful time on the art tour and perusing the shops of Stockholm and the surrounding villages. I hope to return next year with my sister and nieces!

Recommended for: age 55+, girls getaway, sight seeing

Owners response: TansyHus named for a prolific yellow flower and hus, is house in Swedish, is in the heart of the tiny, picturesque village of Stockholm, WI on The Great River Road. The village is within 1 1/2 hrs drive from the Twin cities and an hour from Rochester, MN. The 1904 structure, built by the village blacksmith, has recently been upgraded. The home sleeps 8 guests and is available by a 2 night minimum.

The Fresh Art tour takes place in May and again in early October. The 3 day event spans a 50 mile radius and all within a 45 minute drive from TansyHus.
