The Cottage, at Journey Inn, an eco-retreat, is a cozy vacation home nestled in a beautiful secluded valley (coulee), 3 miles from Lake Pepin (the Mississippi River). The Cottage is for guests who are looking for a quiet get-away or retreat in a natural setting, and is just 1 hour from St. Paul, Minnesota.
It has a fully equipped kitchen, with complimentary teas & coffee, casual dining area, living room with wood stove, two bathrooms (one with shower, one with a spa tub), a covered porch and patio with gas barbeque grill. The living room, dining room and kitchen are a bright, open floor plan and fully tiled. The two bedrooms have wooden floors and large windows. Both bedrooms have queen beds, one a wool-wrapped futon on wood slat frame and the other a latex mattress on wood slat frame. Additionally, the living room has a futon couch that folds into a double bed, as well as several other chairs and a small library. All rooms have great views of the surrounding hills and woods. All linens are provided.
The 66 acre property affords visitors opportunities for biking highways and back roads (and nearby rails-to-trails bike trails), hiking our trails through prairies, woodlands and hills, as well as birding and star-gazing the wide-open evening skies.
Nearby are art galleries, restaurants, shops and many opportunities for driving scenic roads along the Mississippi or back into the hills of The Driftless Region of Western Wisconsin. Seasonal art tours, The Stockholm Art Fair and other activities abound throughout The Mississippi Valley region along and near Lake Pepin.
Massage and energy therapy sessions, life direction coaching, individually-tailored retreats, couples and other retreats, a Japanese Soaking tub & shower spa area are all available on site in our new EarthSky Body/Mind Center.

About Charlene or John
Creating Journey Inn & the Cottage at Journey Inn were a dream of ours. We have created a relaxing space where you can connect with your self, loved ones and the natural world. John is a psychologist & personal coach, and Charlene is a massage & energy therapy practitioner.
Charlene or John purchased this cottage in 2003
Why Charlene or John chose Maiden Rock
We moved from Minneapolis and bought The Cottage and surrounding acreage to build Journey Inn, an eco-retreat, a 'green' bed and breakfast. The Cottage was on the property, and we lived there while building the B & B. We now live in the B&B and rent the Cottage to people who want a quiet, private get-away experience.
What makes this cottage unique
The Cottage has dark night skies, a beautiful, quiet natural environment, and is adjacent to a hilly Wisconsin State Natural area. It is a short drive to artistically active small Mississippi River towns, and only one hour from St. Paul, MN.
Guestbook comments from the owner
The countryside is beautiful, serene and calling you to relax. The cottage itself could not have been more inviting with all the windows and open floor plan - comfy bed, guest spa tub, a cooki delight kitchen and soothing sound of crackling wood in the wood stove. Thank you for a much needed weekend away. And thank you, John & Charlene for your great hospitality. Thank you for allowing our best friend "Paolo" (their dog) to join us on this journey.
