Wisconsin House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Detached Guest House, total of 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps up to 12)

The address of this is: 518 N. Lakeshore Drive, Lake City, MN 55041

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

This lovely home was completely remodeled in the first half of 2012, but the charm and character remains intact. A new kitchen, new bathrooms (3.5 of them), new 'everything' is just what makes this old house so special.

Option #1 - Sleeps 12 (House & Guest House)

The House is 2,000 sq. ft. plus a screened porch, two large decks (one with an over-sized picnic table and the 2nd deck with a fire pit). Both decks offer 'Stunning Views' of Lake Pepin.

The living room has a wonderful bay window. There are wooden plantation shutters throughout the home, hardwood floors, leather sofa bed (queen), cozy chairs, built-in electric fireplace, large flat screen 37" TV with cable & wireless internet. The dining room has a built-in bench and a trestle table with seating for 10. The kitchen is fully equipped and has solid granite counter tops. There is a breakfast bar for three (3) in the kitchen with great views. There is a family room off the kitchen with a 2nd TV, gas fireplace/heater and more great views. Off the family room there is a lovely screened-in porch.

All linens are provided, plus there is a washer & dryer.

The 1st floor bedroom (queen) has an attached 3/4 bathroom . Also, on the main level away from all the living space, there is a new over-sized bathroom with a walk-in shower. There is also a third bathroom on the main level which features a pedestal, cast iron bathtub. Upstairs is a large bedroom (king) and a sleeping loft-like room (2 twin beds). There is also a 1/2 bath on the upstairs level.

The separate Guest House (also w/ stunning views of the Lake) sleeps 4 and has a corner built-in daybed (queen) with lots of pillows. In addition, there is a bunk bed (2 twins), a game table which seats 6, and a TV w/cable. It's a great spot for kids to hang out or it provides your group with some extra living space. The Guest House is available from April through October. The 'Guest House' has air conditioning and an electric fireplace/heater.

About Sharon Hutchinson

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

Why Sharon Hutchinson chose Wisconsin

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 and 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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Best of the Best!!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this location to celebrate our 50th Anniversary because it was half-way between our family members who live in WI and MN. We celebrated our 30th in Alaska and our 40th in Europe, but this was the way to remember our 50th. There is enough room for everyone to spread out - front room, family room, screened porch, outside decks -and to do their own thing. Great view of Lake Pepin, yet within walking distance of restaurants, shops, marina, beach, etc. The owners have thought of everything - night lights, labeled switches, coffee service, brochures, restaurant menus, bicycles, outdoor games, TV's, DVD players & DVD's, board games, washer & dryer, etc. Kitchen is outstanding - top shelf cookware, electric griddle, blender, toaster, etc., etc. All you need is your own personal items and you will have the best time ever. Sharon and John are great hosts and we recommend them highly.

Wonderful 30th Anniversary Celebration!!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been any happier!!! What a wonderful, comfy, cozy place to spend time on Beautiful Lake Pepin! Sharon was a gem of a hostess, even when we arrived 2 hours later than expected. Her and her husband have thought of EVERYTHING, and no matter the size of your group or the age range of people- your needs are met in this sweet cottage. LOVED all of the bathrooms!, and the decorating is darling!, but simple with soothing colors. It just echoes "RELAX". Thank you Sharon and John! We plan to return, sooner than later!

Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

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 loved it!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Home away from Home without Stress!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: We're so happy you are so happy. G & G have already made the reservation for 2016 to ensure your dates for both homes. You are lucky to have such nice and generous parents/grandparents ...

Girls gone wild!

  • 5 of 5

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.
