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.
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.
Only a few short blocks (a short walk) to the Municipal Marina, Parks & Beach and downtown Lake City.
