A little mid week getaway to recharge the mind, body and soul. What a perfect place to go. Brenda greeted us at the door, and we were instantly comfortable. The house is beautiful and just the right mix of amenities to help you relax and unwind. The eagles gave us a wonderful show while we were out and about exploring...

We are so glad you chose our home to recharge your batteries! You added a splash of fresh air and delight to our home and you are welcome back anytime you need to relax and refresh and recharge your life. The bon fire and the treats and card readings were the perfect ending to the night. Thanks again for sharing...

We spent a fun, chilly winter getaway evening at the Turning Waters B&B. We loved the warm rooms, fuzzy robes, and fabulous full breakfast. Brenda and Ford are very loving hosts. Great beer and wine tasting too! Thanks for a memorable anniversary trip.

Thank you for choosing our home and we appreciate you sharing what you loved about our home. I will admit Ford makes some amazing craftbeer and we are awaiting our brewery taproom, possibly brewpub within the year. Happy Anniversary! Brenda & Ford

My husband and I booked a last minute stay at Turning Waters and Brenda could not have been more accommodating. The house is magnificent and so charming, which describes our Hosts as well. Breakfast was homemade and nice to see that they buy from the local farmers. The food was outstanding. We went to the Eagle Center and Reads Brewery...

Thank you so much for thinking of us on your last minute time to get away! One night was too short so come back soon for some more fun and homebrew craftbeer! Ford and I will start to create more breakfast treats and masterpieces for the 5 course breakfast. Cheers until we see you again. Brenda & Ford

Turing Waters took me for two nights while a colleague and I were filming Wabasha's famous bald eagles in their wonderful wintering grounds along the Mississippi River. Brenda and Ford were exceedingly accommodating, providing early breakfasts, offering samples of their home brew, and providing a cozy and inviting place to stay. I'd return in a minute.

Brenda and Ford are the perfect hosts!! They made every guest feel right at home and we were treated the first night with a wonderful home cooked meal. Ford has skills in the kitchen!! The rooms are very clean and the beds are very comfortable. Breakfasts are amazing, organic ingredients and plenty of fresh fruit and home made organic yogurt!...

Thank you for joining us the first time and we look forward to your visit in June 2016. We will have more homebrew to sample as we create our brewery taproom coming within this year. Breakfast is what we are known for and we love to offer 5, sometimes 6, to our guests. Cheers! Brenda & Ford

Well, what can we say, spaghetti dinner is what Grumpy Old Festival weekend is all about and of course ice fishing, but YES the exceptionally warm weather almost ruined those plans for the festival.
