AMAZING VIEWS OF LAKE PEPIN

Lake City - Lake Pepin House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

Please click on the 'Calendar' function to verify if the property is available on the dates for which you are seeking

This home is unique and special in so many ways. It's located just 65 miles southeast of the Twin Cities and 35 miles northeast of Rochester, MN (home to the Mayo Clinic). Lake City is a lovely 'seaside-like' town on Minnesota's South Shore of Lake Pepin.

The address is: 523 Park Street, Lake City, MN 55041 (or 523 N. Washington Street for GPS.).

Its cozy, New England Coastal style is sure to please the most discerning guests. The spacious 4 bedroom or cozy 2 bedroom (Lock-Out Configuration) - Comfortably accommodates 2 to 11 people. The home was completely remodeled in early 2010 with all new ceilings, floors, walls, windows, doors, mechanicals, bathrooms and a modern kitchen (stainless steel appliances and solid granite counter tops).

The spacious living room, dining room (with custom made farm table) and kitchen are all open which creates a wonderful Great Room space for entertaining family & friends. Each room throughout the house has a wonderful view of the Lake. There is a 42' HDTV, entertainment center & fireplace. The living room features a large leather sofa, leather chair w/ottoman, game table and unbelievable views of Lake Pepin. The stone patio (w/pergola) in front of the house provides more than 300 sq. ft of luxurious outdoor space and has a beautiful built-in fire pit surrounded by comfortable Adirondack chairs and a covered picnic table porch. The perfect vacation rental place to spend quality time discussing 'whatever' or just taking in the beautiful scenery.

There are two options:

1. Option One - (Sleeps up to 11) - 1550 Sq. Ft.

Four bedrooms & two baths. The master bedroom suite is very large (approx. 300 sq. ft.) with a queen size bed, private sitting area w/second TV & fireplace. Also, the master bedroom suite has 3 large picture windows and each window offers an absolutely breathtaking view of The Lake and Maiden Rock. The second bedroom is also very large and has two queen size beds. There are two bedrooms on the second level and a 3/4 bath, one small bedroom with a double bed and a large open area with three twin beds (perfect for children or adults who want their own bed).

The kitchen is complete in every respect and features stainless steel appliances and solid granite counter tops. The kitchen counter has a peninsula that is perfect for: gathering around; sitting three for meals or serving guests. The dining room features a large table which can be extended to seat 10 very comfortably. There is additional seating for three at the counter.

2. Option Two - (Sleeps up to 6) - 1150 Sq. Ft.

Two bedrooms & one bath. Option # 2 is the main level only and offers all the luxury living space of Option # 1 without the upper level.

Plan that special event!

The home is the perfect place for 'family reunions,' 'girlfriends get-a-way.' 'two or three family housing,' and many other occasions. Lots of open space, yet privacy for those who choose to go to bed early or sleep-in.

John was born in nearby Rochester and vacationed in Lake City with his parents and siblings in the 50s. Fond memories are etched in his memory from years of enjoying their family's boat house and small Thompson cruiser. John was an executive until his early retirement in 2003 when he and his wife purchased a second home in Lake City. They spent the next four years remodeling and redecorating their new summer home.

Sharon was born in Cleveland, OH and spent her middle & early adult years in Florida. She moved to MN in the mid 70s and worked in retail as a buyer (Dayton-Hudson) and as a decorator. They purchased a second property in Lake City in 2008 and made it into their first vacation rental. John & Sharon are enjoying their retirement years remodeling and decorating what they believe constitutes the perfect vacation rental.

Sharon Hutchinson purchased this house in 2009

This particular property and its location is extremely unique. The views are some of the best views possible of Lake Pepin. Its proximity to the water and its central location to the Marina, City parks, the RiverWalk and the downtown is unmatched. Because so much of the Mississippi River is inaccessible due to the highways, railroads, parks and rough terrain, Lake City is blessed because of its access to the Lake. This particular property is one of just a few single family homes available for rent that are so close to the water and with an unobstructed view of Lake Pepin.

The house is ideal as a vacation rental as the views from every room are just hard to envision. The layout is perfect for entertaining and enjoying family and friends. There is room for one group or for several smaller groups to enjoy their time together simultaneously, but with privacy when desirable. The fireplace and the bonfire pit present wonderful opportunities for groups to share their stories with family, friends and to pass on folklore to the next generation.

FABULOUS GIRLS GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
Once again, we had a fabulous stay! This is our 4th year staying at one of John & Sharon's properties. We would highly recommend it! The house is stocked with all sorts of little things you might find you need. We always feel so at home, and have the most relaxing, wonderful time! Sharon is so thoughtful and welcoming- we love seeing her and staying in their lovely properties. We're spoiled now and don't want to stay anywhere else! We've already booked our weekend for next year, and are looking forward to it!

Our group of 6 retired couples rented both Amazing Views and Stunning Views for 2 nights. We all wished we were staying longer, so we have already made reservations for next September. The furnishing are beautiful! The accommodations are charming, clean, well stocked and Sharon is amazing just like her cottages. Both cottages are so charming that you cannot say one is nicer than the other. We had 3 couples in each cottage. We had the early up in the morning group in one cottage, and the sleeping later group in the other. The guys played cards and the gals did our chatting and scratch-offs. We ate out mostly, and of course the Chickadee Cottage was our favorite. Also went to the National Eagle Center in Wabasha. Had lunch at Slippery's (Grumpy Old Men movie location).
Great mini-vacation.

PERFECT FAMILY CHRISTMAS VACATION

  • 5 of 5
So sorry it took so long to write this review. We absolutely loved this home and it was amazing!! Having family in the area, this was a perfect location for us and the view of the Town Christmas Tree right from the front lawn gave it the small town charm. We came all the way from Florida so a White Christmas is quite a treat for us. What made it even more amazing was to wake up and look out to see John shoveling off the driveway and brushing off our cars. Sharon had great communication throughout the entire rental process as well. It was a really nice touch to have a Christmas tree away from home in the master suite. Thank you again for making our Family Christmas 2012 perfect!!

WONDERFUL AND COZY!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was wonderful. Sharon greeted us upon arrival and welcomed us into the home with a fire in the fireplace and all the kindness and gratuity one can find at an elite hotel or resort. She had everything labeled clearly and made sure we knew how everything worked and how to reach her if we needed anything. The home is beautiful with lovely decor, comfortable and cozy furniture, a long customized table which made it easy to share meals together and work on our crafts. The view is absolutely spectacular and we loved watching all the activity on the lake. From the barges that went by, windsurfers and smaller boats, to the eagles in the sky, we were truly in awe. AND to make the stay even more incredible, a local restaurant called The Railhouse Grill (just a few blocks away) has agreed to deliver to Sharon & John's rentals! The food is fabulous and we will go out of our way in the near future to try more of their delicious food! We have rented many homes through VRBO but have never been this impressed with a home and its owners. We plan to return year after year to make it our getaway choice every Spring! We highly recommend this rental!
