About Sharon Hutchinson
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.

Why Sharon Hutchinson chose
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.
What makes this House unique
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.

This was a great stay with a beautiful view. Very nice and comfortable for my family for an very enjoyable stay. John and Sharon were very responsive to our needs! Thank You!
Nice location. Saw an eagle.
Great family fun
Sharon was wonderful to work with, so accommodating and helpful. Our family had a wonderful week and the house accommodated our 3 grandchildren and 4 kids perfectly. Great for walking to marina and downtown.
What a great place! The owner has outfitted this lovely, comfortable home with everything you could possibly need. The views are spectacular. It’s comfy and cozy and quiet. Six book club members were more than comfortable and not crowded in this quaint, nautically decorated cottage. Beyond our expectations. Wine tasting tour, lunch at The Cottage, shopping at the cool Pearl Button -best gift and decor place ever! We will definitely be back and it simply can’t be soon enough in my opinion! Thanks for your gracious hospitality, Sharon. You were a treat to deal with and chat with. Reasonable price and every details provided for. You are a grand host!
We're so glad that you and your book club members found 'Amazing Views' to be everything you were looking for and were able to enjoy all its wonderful features. We look forward to your return visit in the Fall.
Perfect Girls Getaway Weekend
We loved Amazing Views! Sharon and John were wonderful hosts. The home was perfect for the 8 of us. We enjoyed many meals together and gathering in the living room catching up on life. The kitchen was amazingly stocked. We had everything we needed. Beds were comfy and house was so cozy.
We enjoyed Lake City. Beautiful lake. Dinner at Lake House Restaurant is a must.
A bonus...this is the first VRBO we haven’t run out of toilet paper at! Much appreciated.
Thank you for your kind words, and you were great guests, too. We never get tired of hearing about how our guests had a wonderful time in Lake City. It's truly a very unique area with lots of natural beauty. Hope to see you again, soon.
Loved our stay at Amazing Views!
The Amazing Views house was clean, full of all the amenities of home, had great views of Lake Pepin, and was within walking distance of the fun shops of downtown Lake City! It was perfect for a knitting getaway with my 7 friends. Plenty of room for all of us, and we can't wait to come back again!
Thank you so much for your positive review. We appreciate it so much! And we appreciate the great condition you left the house. You're 'welcome back' anytime. See you then.
Only a few short blocks (a short walk) to the Municipal Marina, Parks & Beach and downtown Lake City.
