Lake City is a lovely 'seaside-like' town on Minnesota's South Shore of Lake Pepin.

John & Sharon own four vacation rentals in Lake City. They all feature a 'coastal theme' as they believe there is nothing more soothing and more comforting than to be near the water in a cozy, coastal home with lots of space and lots of family & friends.
Sharon Hutchinson purchased this house in 2011
All three of the 'vacation rentals' are within a few hundred feet of each other. Two properties are back to back and are separated by a cute picket fence but connected by a gate. Occasionally, large groups choose to rent both homes as they can walk from one home to the other in about 30 seconds.
Because this property can sleep up to 12 and offers options; it can be configured to meet your needs. It is very attractive to larger groups who need space and beds. It's perfect for that family reunion, girl friend getaways or that multiple family gathering.
Sharon was a great hostess, working with us on arrival time and ready for us when we arrived. The property is outfitted with everything you might need. Everything is kept in good order, clean and great quality. Great location near the lake. Good meeting spot for north and south people to meet in the middle!
We spent a week in this home and had a wonderful time. The home is very well stocked and the owners are so friendly and helpful. There were decks of cards, multiple board games, movies, coffee, creamer, sugar & even bicycles available which was a real treat. The town & area is beautiful. I would stay here again without a second thought, it was just perfect for our family wedding weekend.
This is year number 2 for a week in John & Sharon's rental properties. We were in Stunning Views last year with 3 of our young adult kids and Grandpa & Grandma came to share some of the time as well. We enjoyed it so much that for G & G's 55th wedding anniversary they decided to rent the 2 neighboring properties for all 22 of us to enjoy! What an awesome week it has been! Even with rainy weather there were activities, games, bicycle rides and hikes that happened. We have enjoyed boating both years as well and the proximity to the marina is so nice!
John and Sharon have done such a great job of thinking and planning for all of their renters! Cooking utensils, serving pieces, pots and pans, games, videos and so much more. Feels like home but so much more relaxing and the views of the lake are just what I love to rise to every morning with a cup of strong coffee out on the patio chairs!
Thank you so much John and Sharon for your hospitality and sharing the great ideas of the homes. We hope to make this a favorite spot yearly.
We had wonderful accommodations but there were nine of us and a few had to stay in the guest house, very nice but no bathroom, which is okay but we are all getting older so we have to go into the main house in the middle of the night! The owners are wonderful to work with and were very accommodating with making sure the grill was full and ready for us to use. The owners even found the newspaper clipping about the girls down town event and left that for us, which we all enjoyed. They made us feel very much at home. I am bringing my family for another weekend, had a wonderful time. I would recommend this home to anyone interested in a relaxing weekend or week, the downtown is close enough to walk, the lake is in view and the home is very comfortable.
The Lake City cottage was everything we hoped for - there were 10 of us (girlfriends group) and the cottage and guest house fit us perfectly. There is no bathroom in the guest house, but only a deck separates the two buildings, and with 3+ bathrooms in the main house, it wasn't a problem. THE KITCHEN WAS FULLY EQUIPPED, and all the other details were attended to. (Be sure to ask about the availability of bicycles and yard games.)
What a wonderful and cozy cottage. We had twelve fabulous women stay the weekend for intense garage sale shopping. The cottage was perfect. We were able to eat dinner at the same table and spread out when needed. Wonderful memories were made. Oh, and the view of the lake was stunning. We are planning to stay again next year!
We can provide a canoe during the summer and snowshoes in the winter...
