Really nice place. So laid back: the Innkeeper gives you the run of the place. I try to stay here during the Lake Pepin Three-Speed Tour if it's not already booked. The Innkeeper was very accommodating in allowing us to put an extra person in our room. Great breakfast.

Brenda and Ford are both great hosts and went the extra mile to make my stay as comfortable as possible. The rooms are amazing and the atmosphere around the house could not be more cozy and welcoming! Even though i had to leave the house early, Brenda had a "to go" breakfast prepared and ready in the refrigerator for me!...

Well you will have to get in line for the next available "boarding" room:) We sure do miss your smiling faces, laughter and fun you added to our home.

Looked online and found Turning Waters and stopped by to see if they had a room open. There was a house full of people as Brenda was having their annual Holiday dinner for family and guests.

We are delighted and so glad you chose to stop at our home for your post Christmas adventure! I'm glad the 39 others attending our family, friend and guest Christmas dinner didn't deter you from staying.

I have nothing but great things to say about our stay. The house is beautiful, Brenda and Ford definitely have an eye for quality in everything they do. The food was sourced from local responsible places and very delicious. Being able to experience a stay in a home ran by thoughtful, fun, interesting people was worth every penny.

We are overjoyed that you loved your stay, especially breakfast! We do enjoy making a healthy and hearty breakfast no matter what your dietary restrictions are. I'd have to say that "Victorian" house simply means old, 1912, as our home is more millennial and chic with nature and adventure mixed in:) Thanks again for your wonderful overview and yes, paddling...
