Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-6)

Build brand new in 2010 this 1 bedroom apartment (800 sq ft) is above a retail space (which used to be our ice cream/sandwich/gift shop). It has a very large deck (~ 1000 sq ft) that looks out over the Pepin marina and Lake Pepin. We have been greening up the deck again this year with new plantings. The apartment is completely furnished and has a comfortable decor. It's simple style will appeal to those wanting a reasonably priced escape with ample space for a comfortable extended stay. A great place for couples or families.

Come to the Pepin area to slow down, relax, and enjoy the wonderful views of the Mississippi River bluffs and Lake Pepin. Explore the many small towns, shops, art galleries, wineries and eateries the area has to offer.

Please know that Pepin has trains that run along the waterfront. Trains run VERY regularly! Some folks don't like the noise. If you are a light sleeper this may bother you. Also know that the railroad has instituted a "quiet zone" so the trains will no longer need to blow their horns in the village (unless emergency). Be sure to cross the tracks ONLY at the marked crossings. If caught walking across the tracks in other locations you may be subject to a significant fine ! $$$$ Further more, the rails and crossings were improved so there is even less train wheel noise.

About John Worrell

John and Deirdre Worrell had a dream to run their own businesses so we purchased a small commercial building on the waterfront in Pepin, WI in 2007. Since then the old building has been demolsihed and a new one built to have a retail space, office space, and apartment space. We used to run Hear it Melt - an ice cream/sandwich shop in the retail space. Deirdre's Audiology business North Ridge Hearing Company is in the office space. The residential space above the commercial space is our apartment get-away. We love the beauty, pace, and people of the Pepin area for recreating.

John Worrell purchased this apartment in 2007

Why John Worrell chose Pepin

We chose Pepin for our location because:

- The area is beautiful

- Lake Pepin offers 17,000 acres of water

- The Tiffany Wildlife area offers 14,000 acres of wildlife area

- It's close to our home (1 hr) and offers a wide variety of activities.

- There is something in the area for everyone.

What makes this apartment unique

Pepin is a village of ~1000 people. We love the small town feel. There are also several small towns in the area that also offer a variety of little shops and activities.

Great place! Clean and charming rental! Would definitely stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment! Very clean, very spacious and stocked with needed essentials which was much appreciated. I found the decor perfect for the area and really gave the feel of a sailing community. Quiet and peaceful, even with the trains running regularly. Which I may add, were not as loud as I expected them to be. We slept just fine. We found there was a couple packages of earplugs on the dresser but we didn't need them. Bird watching was great from the deck and kitchen window. Very active this time of year. The deck is wonderful! Relaxing at it's best with a great view. There is 2 things I will comment on when I thought about living there ...and yes I said to myself "I could live here!" Lol. I had wished the trees were trimmed up a bit to enhance the view from the deck. And the bathroom mirror is a bit high for us shorties. Ha! Overall great place and John was very easy to work with! Don't forget to sign the book hidden under the radio! ;)

Thank you again for renting to us!! We enjoyed it!

Adorable.. great place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, kids and I came up from Chicago for a wedding. The place is so well kept and we loved it. We were able to take our kids to the river/beach to walk around and there was a really great coffee shop just downstairs. The only thing to keep in mind is to take note of their reminder that there are no TV stations. They made this very clear to us, but we completely forgot to bring DVDs for the kids. Completely our fault, but don’t forget if you stay here! We would 100% stay here again!!

Interesting and Comfortable Location

  • 4 of 5

This was a great accommation for our two night stay for a wedding at the winery. A great location across from the marina, coffee shop next door and restaurants down the block. Frequent trains were interesting and not a deterrent to sleep. Enjoyed the wonderful deck - grilled one evening and frequently used the seating day and night. We would return.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We appreciate all the wedding attendees and families that have stayed (and even some brides and grooms). The deck is a great gathering area. Consider renting our lower apartment too for larger wedding groups. The lower unit is street level, very accessible for limited mobility people, and pet friendly to boot. You can find it also on VRBO.com
