Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Enjoy your vacation in one of the oldest homes of Lake City that has been completely modernized. While the beautiful mahogany banister and original hardwood floors on the second level reflects the glory of yesteryear, granite countertops, a slipper bathtub, and WiFi provide all of the comforts of the 21st century. The eat-in kitchen with large table and benches provide a wonderful space for meals. The open floor plan allows family and friends to spend time together between the kitchen and living room. A den with a large TV and game table provide a space away from the main rooms. A brand new bathroom with shower, and stacking washer and dryer laundry complete the main level.

Three bedrooms upstairs provide plenty of privacy. The first bedroom is the “room with a view” of beautiful Lake Pepin. This room has a queen sized bed, while the second bedroom has two queen sized beds. The third bedroom is cozy with a double bed. A full bathroom with a luxurious slipper tub completes the 2nd floor.

The house is a half block from the boat launch into Lake Pepin, and three blocks from downtown shopping and restaurants. For the fishermen in your family, there are plenty of walleye, northern pike, bass, and sunnies (for those little guys and gals!). And of course Lake City is the birthplace of waterskiing, so the perfect place for water fun! One block away from Water Ski Days festivities, or fireworks on the 4th of July, this is the perfect place for a wonderful vacation.

Long-term rentals welcome during the off-season. Email for winter rates.

Great house near Lake Pepin!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at the Franklin House in Lake City. The house has a great floor plan that feels open and spacious yet cozy as well. The second living area and game table off of the kitchen is a bonus! The owners were amazing to work with and keep the house in great condition. We spent time on the porch in the front and on the deck out back enjoying the spring weather. The walk to town for shopping and restaurants was under 10 minutes. Thanks for a great time!

Wonderul stay at the Franklin House

  • 5 of 5

The house was just perfect. Very clean, nicely decorated and lots of space. Our hosts were very responsive to our requests. Very close to the lake with a nice view from the back yard. I would definitely recommend Franklin House.

Clean, convenient. Lake City is a beautiful area.

  • 5 of 5

Owner was very responsive. Property looked exactly like the pictures. Lots to do in the area. Railhouse restaurant was excellent and so were the antique stores in downtown Lake City.

First class VRBO with tons of ammenities. WOW!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Franklin House for Sister's weekend last Wednesday through Sunday. What a great setting in a wonderful small town! We enjoyed the back yard firepit and deck as it was a beautiful weekend. Lake City has been our destination before, but the Franklin House was perfect in size for our group of 4. The DVD with surround sound was impressive for our evening movies. The kitchen is expansive and the bedrooms a good size. Having two bathrooms helped us get ready and out for our days of exploring the area. We were so pleased that we are already confirmed to visit and stay another long weekend next October. Thanks Jodee & Steve!

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and that the home was a good fit for your Sister's Weekend! We designed the main floor to provide our guests the ability to hang out together, or find a quiet corner to crack open a book. Glad you enjoyed it, and look forward to seeing you next year!
