You will not forget a weekend spent at Windbeam House, 6 miles from charming Red Wing, Minnesota. Floor-to-ceiling living room windows offer spectacular views of not only Goose Lake but also the bluffs of historic Red Wing across the river. This tree-lined panorama provides breath-taking year round scenery, including miles of the Mississippi's famous fall foliage and ever changing waters. Because the house sits on the edge of the bluff above the lake, it is a perfect spot to sit and relax, watching a wide array of birds and animals, including eagles and flocks of migratory swans and pelicans in season, not to mention trains passing silently along the edge of the lake below.
This four bedroom rambler sleeps 12 with one full bath and two half baths, a family room, full kitchen and dining room. Only one hour from Minneapolis/St.Paul or Rochester, Minnesota, this home offers a retreat for groups from 2-12. And while it is hard not to be mesmerized by the view, it is also within a few miles of shopping, hiking, fishing, golf, snowshoeing and skiing. Not to mention an extensive arts community, restaurants, antique dealers, the Sheldon Theater and Treasure Island Casino.
This peaceful house is pet friendly and comfortably furnished in southwestern style. The master bedroom is equipped with a queen size bed and includes a private half bath. The other three bedrooms have double beds. Downstairs, the family room offers two full futon sofas.
Four generations of our family have come together in this home and we look forward to sharing it with you.

We live on a small farm just 6 miles from Windbeam House. We purchased our farm in 1976 when the farmhouse was about to be demolished. Much of our time since then has been spent renovating the house and outbuildings and creating the many gardens that surround Windbeam Farm.
Trudi Schaefer purchased this house in 2000
We inherited this property from Paul's parents in 2010. Immediately, we saw the potential for furnishing it as a guest house for the many friends and families who visit the Red Wing area. Womens Weekends Away and Fishing tournaments are two of the groups who find Windbeam House the perfect place to stay.
Practically every person that comes through the front door of Windbeam House is awed by the lovely view of the Mississippi River and the bluffs of Red Wing that greet them through the wall-to-wall windows of the living room. People tell us they sit in that room for many peaceful hours, watching the river, the birds but especially the eagles who perch in the trees below the house.
The Windbeam House was perfect for our girls getaway! Everything was pretty seamless. Instructions were clear, owners were friendly, and the house was accurate to its description. Excellent and scenic back yard, which we took advantage of as much as we could. We loved hearing the trains go by and just being able to overlook the bluffs! Beautiful views! It helped that we were there over a gorgous weekend too. We brought our bikes and were able to keep them in the spacious garage. We only got to bike over into Red Wing during the day, but I could tell that many biking adventures could be had in the area. I'd go back again and again. Thank you, Trudi, for sharing your gem of a house!
House was fine for our family...all very comfortable and as described.. Owners easy to contact and very pleasant. Loved the view of course. Loved having the Christmas tree there.
Our stay was short and it was cold out but we did enjoy exploring the shops on mainstreet and a restaurant for lunch out. Appreciate that the owners provided a backup for oven when the oven was not functioning properly and also compensated us monetarily. Enjoyed the southwestern decor of the house. Appreciate that dogs were allowed or we would not have chosen this house. Thanks Trudi.
Absolutely loved our New Years weekend at Windbeam House. The views are incredible, house cozy and welcoming, with the area quiet & relaxing. Redwing is just a couple miles away with lots to offer.
We enjoyed our stay with the view!! Clean, comfortable and close to things to do!
Great house with a stunning view. Comfortable and fully outfitted. I highly recommend it.
We were a group of 10 women on a Retreat Weekend. Plenty of space for discussion and sleeping arrangements! Trudi was very accommodating! House had everything we needed. The view over the river is amazing! We saw several eagles, two deer and even a raccoon! I would recommend this place!
