Why Jim Schreck chose Lake City - Lake Pepin

This location in Old Frontenac is the most peaceful place we know of. It is located right on the beach with wonderful views of the Mississippi and a nice beach. We enjoy building fires in the evening and just enjoying the scenery. Fall and spring are wonderful seasons with lots of wildlife in view and the colors of the leaves changing are breathtaking in the fall. Summer is wonderful with quiet nights and gentle breezes.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy the peace and quiet that this location offers. I love cooking on the grill overlooking the water. Our children enjoy the water and all the amenities it offers - with boating, canoeing etc being fun for them. We like to walk and Old Frontenac is great for walking an biking. The wildlife is amazing with bald eagles being daily visitors and deer and waterfowl abounding in the neighborhood. This is the only rental we are aware of on Lake Pepin with direct access to the lake - no roads etc between the cabin and the lake!

Late at night we enjoy playing board games on the large table with the family and guests. The table actually seats 8 if friends show up for the day!

FAMILY FUN FOR OLD AND YOUNG

  • 5 of 5
My son and his family recently moved to Iowa from the east coast and had never experienced a lake vacation. The five of us spent a week at this lovely home and enjoyed fishing, swimming, eagle watching, barbecuing, canoeing and paddleboating. We made several day trips to Red Wing, Wabasha and other river towns taking in art fairs, boat cruises, national eagle center, wine tasting tours, scenic hikes and viewing barges going through locks. Jim and his wife were perfect hosts and went out of their way to return some items we left behind. Many thanks!

FUN GIRLS WEEKEND

  • 4 of 5
I and my 2 girlfriends stayed here for 2 nights. We had a bit of a surprise as it was a very wet Spring and the grounds around the home flooded. Jim one of the owners was good enough to let us know in advance that it may happen but we decided to go ahead and stick with our plans. He even stopped by to check on us the second night, which was nice. The home is very nice and is right on Lake Pepin. The first day we watched an Eagle swoop down and catch a fish and then land in the tree right next to the deck and eat it. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck and watching all the eagles and much to our surprise flocks of pelicans too. We enjoyed the fireplace and played games around it in the evenings. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need and we enjoyed staying in and eating most of our meals right there. It's only 13 miles to Red Wing and is worth the trip in to see the shops. We would like to come back another time so we can see the beach and maybe take a canoe ride. It was a fun and interesting girls weekend.

Owner's Response: These three guests are intrepid travelers! We had called earlier in the week advising them of the potential for high water and offered a refund, but they were not afraid of a little water and came and enjoyed the weekend together. We particularly enjoy welcoming guests who like the out-of-doors and the lovely scenery and wildlife in the area. These ladies were great guests and left the cabin in wonderful shape. We look forward to having them return when the river is at its normal level!

Perfect vacation spot for a family with three young boys

  • 5 of 5
We had such a WONDERFUL stay at this property. A quick list of our favorites- the location, the view, the beach, the canoes, the kitchen stocked with every dish/utensil we could possibly need, the cleanliness, the availability of a washer/dryer, the fishing, the beach toys, the fire pit, the beach chairs, the sleeping accomodations, the A/C (we picked a really hot week), the board games. The list could go on and on. Thank you so much for a great time, we will definitely be back again!

A perfect getaway for senior Ladies and water lovers

  • 5 of 5
beyond my expectations. I have discovered that many owners exaggerate the good points of their property amd ..leave out the problems. this cabin was even better than I hoped. T he beds and chairs were comfortable. The AC really worked . The view was fabulous.
The water was high but it just gave us more to see and the swimming was still great. I can't handle much roughing it anymore and I sure didn't find anything to complain about. Will be back

What a beautiful view! If you are looking for a relaxing spot, this lake house is great! We quit counting bald eagles the first day at 10. The weather was pretty rainy, but the view from inside the house was great, and there were plenty of board games for family fun. We brought our 13 and 15 year old with us for a short stay because my wife had Mayo appointments. It is located very close to Red Wing, Lake City, Wabasha and Pepin, WI (the birthplace of Laura Ingles Wilder). I felt the house had a nostalgic/cozy feel to it. The Schrecks are wonderful hosts!

Owner's Response: Nathan and Sharon were great guests. It makes us feel really good when our guests enjoy the environment that the cabin affords. We always feel like we have been at a retreat when we stay there and are happy that others get the same sense of refreshment! Thanks for staying with us.

If you looking for heaven on earth, look
no further. This beautifully appointed
cottage is the perfect getaway for peace
and harmony with nature. The kitchen is
so well stocked you could have a dinner
party for 20!
The beds are so comfortable. We awoke
each morning to the sun rise and eagles
flying by the deck. This is the perfect
spot for families, or couples. We
cannot wait to go back. MJ
