Arriving at Turning Waters was like coming home! A very friendly and inviting place within walking distance of the charming town of Wabasha. The rooms were very inviting, the breakfast worth four stars. This is the place one hopes to return to...

My husband and I spent three glorious nights in The River Room Suite. The suite was spacious, peaceful & relaxing. This stunningly beautiful inn was immaculate, warm and welcoming.

We were spoiled at Turning Waters and probably won't ever try another B & B because one could never compare. Clean, stylish, smart, welcoming, tasty, affordable... Brenda and Ford have it all figured out. All we had to do was put our feet up and enjoy.

We had a great first B&B experience at Turning Waters. Brenda and Ford were amazing hosts, who made us feel right at home and very comfortable.

This was our BEST bed & breakfast stay ever! the room was spacious, very clean, beautifully done and the bed was extremely comfortable - very important to me!!

WooHoo! Glad you enjoyed our beds as we think a great bed and of course an outstanding breakfast and two things that all B&B's should offer first and foremost.

I've stayed in many B&Bs over the years, and this was, hands down, the best experience I've had. Brenda and Ford are fun-loving hosts and wonderful cooks who clearly want their guests to feel welcome and comfortable, including adjusting breakfast options to include veg. options. If you're traveling through Wabasha, give them a call.

Brenda P, Owner at Turning Waters Bed, Breakfast and Adventure, responded to this review

Jaime, I apologize for the late response as I didn't see your review until now. We are so happy that you enjoyed yourself while visiting Wabasha. Making breakfasts is our specialty and it is easy to please all palates, especially vegetarians as we love veggies:) Blessings, Brenda & Ford

The Turning Waters Bed, Breakfast and Adventure is a beautiful large house about two blocks from the Mississippi River in an historic river town. The town sits in the valley of the Mississippi, one of the most beautiful places in the country in my opinion. The "adventure" in the title refers not to anything about the inn itself, but rather...
