Why The Owner chose Lake City

After visiting and staying in Lake City several times we decided to purchase a home here. We find after visiting other areas of the country we cannot wait to get back to Lake city because of its absolute beauty and in our opinion one of the most beautiful in the world.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Barbara,

I just had to tell you how much I enjoyed your house there and how perfect your place is to have a get together with loved ones! We had the best time and our surroundings were "just right" for the occasion. The view of the lake is wonderful, the house has so much charm and neat atmosphere, and it was all so clean and perfectly furnished and welcoming! I got to use the bedroom closest to the bathroom on the first floor and it was so cute and pretty! But all the bedrooms were so nice and so pleasing to the eye. As were all the rooms. I also loved the sunporch and the huge livingroom and all your flowers and the gazebo! I could have cheerfully stayed there for the entire summer! It was so much fun seeing my sister, niece and our cousins in such a comfortable, attractive surroundings. We talked and laughed walked by the lake and ate out a lot and shopped the nifty stores and watched 2 of your videos and just had a great time in general. I am so grateful to my sister for finding your place and to you for providing it for us! You can bet you'll have lots of word of mouth advertising and recommendations from all of us! Thanks a million!

Perhaps one of nicest properties in the area!

  • 5 of 5

A group of life long friends came together to celebrate a wedding. Bluffview was the perfect place for us to establish "home base" for the week end. Super comfortable, well appointed kitchen, very clean with way more amenities than we could take advantage of. The property host provide assistance on local attractions, communicated details and was available as needed. Totally would stay here again.

Great Stay !

  • 5 of 5

I grew up in Lake City and we came down to show some friends the town and the area. There were six of us in all. Our stay at Bluffview was a perfect setting for us and we were all impressed with the home, the view and the experience. Everything is well kept, and clean. I would recommend without reservation.

Perfect place for a Friend's weekend

  • 5 of 5

Loved this house & location for our annual Tour de Pepin bike ride. The house had all the accomodations we needed and so many options for taking in the beautiful view. We couldn't decide which was our favorite - the peaceful gazabo for our morning coffee, the comfy chairs in the front yard for relaxing after a day of biking or the patio table & chairs in the back for sharing our meals. We walked down to the lakefront several times & watched the sailboats & paddleboat. The house itself met all our needs & provided lots of room for the 6 of us. An added plus - the Dairy Queen is only 2 blocks away! A very memorable weekend!

Fantastic Spring Break Staycation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved staying at the Bluff View Cottage in Lake City. We were going to take a day and travel into Wisconsin but enjoyed the area and house so much, we decided to stick close. One day was spent at the new waterpark at Treasure Island casino with the kids. It was a hit with them and in the evening we returned to our cozy accommodations with brilliant views of the sunset over Lake Pepin. The kitchen, fully stocked with utensils, pots/pans,etc. allowed us to prepare and enjoy a supper without having to find a restaurant when we were enjoyng the house and the views so much. Our second day was spent at the nearby National Eagle Center in Wabasha. A must see for people of any age. We even bought an annual membership to go back a few more times. I would also reccommend making the trip to The Pie and General Store in Stockholm, WI. There was so much to do without driving very far, but Bluff View Cottage was a great "home" to come back to after the adventures of the day. Thank you Barb and Larry for sharing this beautiful place with us!
