LOVED my time in Lake City and THIS HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5

How absolutely wonderful can this home be? It was FANTASTIC. The location to the marina, stores, bike/walk path, everything was right there. We will definitely be using this house again!! The stairs are a bit steep, but that was the only downfall and they are not a deal breaker for the next trip!

Great little Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this place for 6 guys going on a fishing trip. The house was as described, very nice inside and out. It is fully furnished with cooking and cleaning supplies. The off street parking was nice so we could park our boat trailers off the street. We had very hot weather during our stay but the central air worked great. This was our first time staying in Lake City and we would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful home on Lake Pepin

  • 5 of 5

Mark was very pleasant and responsive in booking this home. It was full of character and charm, and well stocked for all your vacation needs. Great walkability to shops and restaurants in town. Right on the riverwalk with lovely lake/river views.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This was a very clean property with a wonderful yard with a great view. We had plenty of room for 6 adults, a 3 year old and a 1 year old. The location was great, nice and close to a public beach area, marina and downtown shopping area. We could walk to everything. The cottage had everything we needed and Mark, the Property Manager, was great to work with. We'd highly recommend this property.

Immaculate with a beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

The Vintage cottage was a wonderful spot for our family of 4 celebrating my husband's birthday. From the board games to the fully stocked kitchen, it felt as though all of our needs were anticipated. The view of the lake is perfect. The only drawback is the fact that the only bathroom is located on the first level and the bedrooms are upstairs and, because the house is over 100 years old, the staircase is very steep. As such, seniors or anyone with knee issues may have some difficulty. Otherwise, I highly recommend this beautiful property.
