Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, comfortably sleeps 5.

Vintage home built in 1900, named Captain's Quarters in memory of my late husband, Riverboat Captain Mark W. Peters, who piloted the paddlewheeler Hiawatha, on the Mississippi River and gave guided tours on Lake Pepin. This is how the 3 bedrooms came to be named. The Mississippi Room consists of a vintage style queen bed, electric fireplace and a private balcony. The Lake Pepin Room has a vintage style queen size bed and electric fireplace. The Hiawatha Room features a full size vintage bed and electric fireplace. All three bedrooms have ceiling fans. In addition to the electric fireplaces and ceiling fans the home has forced air heat and central air. Robes, towels, a shower mat and an extra blanket have been conveniently placed in each bedroom closet. The bathroom has a walk-in shower and a free standing soaking tub. On the main floor there is a washer and dryer available. The kitchen is fully equipped with an eat-in dinette and breakfast counter. It also includes a full size refrigerator with ice maker, range, dishwasher, microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, mixer, slow cooker, and all the utensils and cookware needed to prepare if you prefer to eat in. The dining room features a round oak table, gas fireplace, and French doors that open to a wraparound deck which has a charcoal BBQ grill, table and chairs. Living room has a flat screen TV with cable and Blu Ray Player. There is also a three season porch with board games, puzzles, books, electric fireplace, and VCR player to watch those classic movies. Outside there is a small backyard patio and fire pit, bean bag toss, yard Yahtzee and four vintage style bicycles available for your bike riding pleasure. Enjoy the peace and tranquility of a small town in a quiet neighborhood with off street parking. Your visit may be filled with antiquing, wine tasting at area wineries, cruising aboard the Pearl of the Lake, visiting the National Eagle center, golfing on one of the many golf courses, skiing or snowshoeing in the winter. A complimentary home-made treat is available to my guests as well as coffee, tea or hot chocolate for relaxing on the deck or in front of the fireplace, a perfert way to end your day. My goal at Captain's Quarters is to make you feel welcome and comfortable and that when you leave you take a new memory to add to your life's journey.

This vacation rental property was purchased in 1987 by myself and late husband as our first home to raise our family. It is located in a quiet residential neighborhood, off the busy highways, a short walking distance from the downtown area, which features a wide selection of shops, eating establishments and bars; and only minutes from the marina, the city's beautiful parks, and the exceptional lakeshore. If you are looking for a longer walk, with a view to boot, you can access the river walk. Starting downtown, the river walk extends north to south, following the breathtaking lake scenery along the entire walkway. Enjoy wine? Try locally made wines at Lake Pepin Winery just a short drive away!
