This is the B&B for you if you want to stay in a beautiful older home with modern amenities that's not crammed full of quilts and antiques. (no offense if you love that kind of B&B!) We loved our suite with the cozy fireplace and whirlpool tub. The breakfasts were fabulous - bacon, scones, etc - and the owners are...

Great stay, charming Bed & Breakfast experience. Brenda is a gracious hostess. They brew their own beer. Breakfast was wonderful. Was only in town overnight for work but this stay made it worth while.

Thank you and there are plenty of hugs to go around! So glad you found us for your overnight stay for work.

My wife and I did a Fri-Sat here for an early Valentines weekend. The cool cloudy weather could not dampen this experience. Under "B&B", the Webster Picture Dictionary has a photo of this place, or at least it should.

We are so happy that you enjoyed yourself in our home. YES, we have many eagles to view in the winter months, snow, outdoor activities and more... Both myself and Ford love to make healthy breakfasts and Ford is the master at the beer. We hope you will come back again and we can have more conversation over beer. Cheers...

We had a wonderful, relaxing stay at Turning Waters B&B! The house was charming and we loved our room with double whirlpool, fireplace, & king size bed. Brenda & Ford were very welcoming and we enjoyed getting to know them and sampling their beers. Breakfast was a delicious five course meal! We will definitely be back!

This is a wonderful place to stay! Brenda and Ford were great! We can't wait to get back and see the Brew Pub! The room was awesome and so relaxing. We took a trip over the river to Pepin to Villa Belezza Winery and back over to Red Wing and Lake City to some shops in the area. Great places...

We had an amazing weekend away at the Turning Waters B&B. The accommodations were incredible - the house was warm and inviting. It gave us a welcoming, comfortable, "home for Christmas" vibe.

Had an amazing time this past weekend. Ford and Brenda have really taken it to a new level as hosts of this B&B. The breakfast each morning was unique and delicious. I'd never enjoyed beets before until I tried their beet muffin...Don't pass up a chance to try the beer either! Highly recommend.
