Overview

About the property

Renovated 2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

We named our vacation rental STONE'S THROW because it literally is just a stone's throw (or less than a block) away from Lake Pepin, the beach, the marina, tennis courts, 3 mile River Walk and the downtown Lake City shops and restaurants.

Newly updated, 2 BR, 2 BA. Modern convenience is blended with a bit of reclaimed or repurposed decor. One large bedroom upstairs has a full size iron bed, a twin size iron bed and a sitting area. Just down the hall is a vintage bathroom with tub. A full size bed on the large landing space offers extra sleeping. On the main floor is a bedroom with a queen size four poster bed and attached walk thru bathroom with a shower. New kitchen with dishwasher and gas stove is stocked with the basics if you want to cook. A separate coffee bar area includes coffee maker as well as a Keurig. The separate dining room is a great place to gather for meals or a game night with the family. Living room with breakfast bar opens to the kitchen, where you get a view of the lake out the kitchen window. There is a full size Flexsteel sleeper sofa in the living room. An electric fireplace takes the chill off on cool evenings. Sit on the front porch and watch passersby or enjoy the patio on the back of the house with table seating for 6, gas grill and a chiminea fireplace. WiFi and 40" SmartTV with Netflix, HBO GO, etc. is available but you just might want to take this chance to get unwired for a few days.

Off street parking for a boat trailer is available on the grass parking area. Vacation rental properties on either side of us offer the possibility of multi-family events.

Water Ski Days and July 4th festivities are held right around the corner at Ohuta Park. If you want to explore the area you can take in the Eagle Center and Lark Toys in Wabasha or head north just a few miles to Frontenac or Historic Red Wing. Venture out to the Zumbro River Valley 30 minutes away and rent a canoe or kayak for a leisurely float down the Zumbro River. There are a number of wonderful vineyards in driving distance as well.

About Kathy and Orv Rehfeldt

Orv grew up in the Chicago area and Kathy in the Menomonie, Wisconsin area. We both ended up in Minneapolis where we met and were married and lived with our blended family. The three kids grew up and moved out and in 2006 we retired and moved to our dream log home on a lake in northern Minnesota. But life changes have brought us to Southeast Minnesota where Orv spent his summers with his grandparents in the Millville area.

Kathy and Orv Rehfeldt purchased this house in 2013

Why Kathy and Orv Rehfeldt chose Lake City

Our (crazy) passion for refurbishing homes has led us to rental ownership and we have two full time rental homes near St. Mary's/Mayo Clinic in Rochester. In 2013 we branched off into this new endeavor and bought this home in a great location in Lake City with the intent of turning it into a vacation rental that we might even get to enjoy ourselves sometimes!. We love Lake City for it's coastal-like feel and it's small town charm. Orv is an avid walleye fisherman and Lake Pepin is a great place for that!

What makes this house unique

The location is probably one of the best features of this property. It is one of only a few vacation rentals on the Lake Pepin side of Hwy 61/Lakeshore Drive. That means you can park your vehicle and walk to lots of fun activities!

Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

Four of us woman have been have our "girls weekend" for almost 30 years. Stones Throw is by far one of the top three places we have stayed. First of all, Kathy is a delight to work with and always got back to me quickly with all my questions. The minute you walk in the front door, you feel at home and relaxed. Everything we needed was at our fingertips. We planned to cook more meals and our plans changed, however, had we done that, everything we needed was there. The home was immaculately cleaned and decorated just darling. The towels were top quality and the beds were super comfortable. We sat on the porch all three mornings with our coffee and it couldn't have been nicer! Her notes left on suggestions for restaurants and things to do was so helpful (the Rail House being THE best meal we had and the Chick-A-Dee Cottage is a must). I had to call her twice with questions and she was extremely helpful. Thank you Kathy and Orv for sharing your beautiful home with us and making our weekend perfect!

Very clean and cozy, with easy access to Lake Pepin, shops, and restaurants.

  • 5 of 5

I had a very pleasant experience at Stones Throw. It's very comfortable and has a cottage feel to it, which suited me perfectly! The home is well taken care of and communication between me and the owners was easy, as Kathy and Orv made sure my stay met all my needs. I wish I could have stayed longer and I would recommend staying here to my family and friends.
