We proudly display all four seasons. In the winter, our village and the surrounding villages have many monthly activities (check Pepin, Stockholm, Maiden Rock, Nelson, Wabasha, Lake City and Red Wing websites). Don't forget ice fishing. Spring shows all the new foliage, the new crops of leaves, corn and soybeans. Watch the ice flows break up. Summer weather is spectacular. Try our beach, the boat harbor next to the beach, the beach-front shops. Bring you appetite to try out the many restaurants. Bring a boat and we have a spot and the slip by the harbor. Fall colors in September and October are worth the trip. The sugar maple trees show almost every color of the rainbow. Take a stroll anytime around our village to see great sights and to meet great people.

We chose Pepin as a vacation destination because it is the most friendly town in Wisconsin, the scenery is awesome all the time; there is so much to see. The local merchants are visitor friendly. We have numerous great restaurants. We are close to the Twin Cities and all of southern towns in Wisconsin and Minnesota. Pepin and the surrounding communities have numerous events 12 months of the year, which have an appeal to artists, those who enjoy film, fishing, boating, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, eagle watching and much more. The 'Laura Days' activities in September offer great enjoyment for kids.
Our home is situated in a quiet neighborhood. If listening carefully, you can hear a train whistle in the far distance. The home is very uniquely designed. Everything is very 'custom,' from the ash inlaid cathedral ceiling to the stainless kitchen in custom hardwoods. The home is a true work of art. You can enjoy a easy 3 block walk to the boat harbor and all of the local shopping. Several eating establishments are within 2 blocks. AND, if you come in by boat, we have local transportation from the boat harbor to our home for you and your luggage.
We came down from Minneapolis to check out the Pizza Farm in Stockholm. It was amazing!! We had the best time and perfect weather. Thanks so much for the wonderful cottage. We plan to come back with our kids.
We spent three nights and had a wonderful time. The house is walkable to the waterfront, shops, and restaurants, and best of all for our daughters - down the block from the Laura Ingalls Wilder museum!
Plenty of beds, comfy and quiet house. Great kitchen had everything we needed! Thank you Jim!
We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful, very clean and snuggly home. We were in Pepin celebrating my mom's 81st and my aunt's 90th birthdays, both of whom are Pepin natives. We had a great party at the Nelson Stone Barn! Our family enjoyed the gorgeous, well-stocked kitchen, fabulous grill, and enormous open spaces. Very comfortable couches to spread out and visit. Wonderful stay! Thanks so much for making this weekend extra special, Jim. Our families will be back :)
Great Lake Pepin getaway! Time was split between girlfriends and family time with fantastic activities and fun to please both. Sailing, Stockholm art fair, winery tours, pizza farm, hiking, blueberry picking, Lark toys and swimming. An hour and half from St. Paul. Can't wait to go back! Thanks Jim!
We stayed here for the 100 mile rummage sale in May, 2016. We enjoyed the community and the surrounding area. It's an absolutely beautiful part of Wisconsin! The home is as described, clean and well equipped. It was an easy walk from the house to any of the restaurants and attractions in Pepin. There were six women staying in the house and we all had our own bed. The reason for 4 stars is only because the bathroom situation was a little limited for six women. The half bath in the basement was very small, you can not stand up in it. The upstairs full bath is also small. We lived through it and really enjoyed being in a house where we could all spread out but still be together.
My girlfriends and I stayed here for 3 days for our annual fall getaway. The house was spotless and very comfortable. It's a convenient location and we really enjoyed touring and shopping in all of the charming towns nearby. The Harbor View restaurant was outstanding!! The only complaint we have (which was very minor) was how slow the coffee pot brewed :-) Seven women looking for their morning coffee found it hard to wait so long for one pot to brew!
Thanks Jim for such comfortable accommodations.
We rented the house for 3 days for our daughter and the girls in her wedding party. The house was very nice and well equipped. The girls enjoyed having the house to spread out and relax. Her wedding was at Villa Bellezza Winery. It was very nice to have such a nice place to stay that was close by. Thanks again Jim for a nice house to stay at.
Ice Fishing is huge on Lake Pepin and snowmobiles are encouraged for the 150 miles of trails.
