                                                              We had a great time at Pepin cottage. The instructions were clear and reasonble. We could.just settle in and relax which is exactly what we needed. It was also handy that there was a decent grocery store just a few blocks away to grab a few things so we could cook.

                                                              This little cottage by the Mississippi River is the best place to stay!

                                                              It has great charm and inviting feel of being home. I would stay there

                                                              Your beautiful cottage was the perfect long weekend getaway for us. We enjoyed the view of the sailboats on Lake Pepin and the seagulls circling overhead while drinking our morning coffee & tea. The cleanliness of the cottage was beyond our expectations and we found that everything we needed was at hand. As an avid reader, I loved the placement of books throughout the cottage and enjoyed glancing through the titles as well as reading in the spacious claw foot tub upstairs. This cottage gave us the feel of being home while away from all the busyness and obligations that life at home brings. We hope to visit your cottage again!

                                                              Very Clean and Quaint

                                                              We went to Lake City for a couple's weekend away to play golf at the Jewel and ride bike. The weather did not cooperate, so we sat on the front porch to watch the rain and play games that were provided. It was very cozy and we enjoyed ourselves. We were able to walk to Nosh and to the marina. Everything is so close. The weather cleared so we were able to play golf. The Jewel is beautiful. We enjoyed a bon fire in the back yard. The house is very clean and spacious for two couples. Two nights was not enough, we wish we could have stayed another night! Loved it!
