All rooms have great views of the surrounding hills and woods. All linens are provided. The 66 acre property affords visitors opportunities for biking highways and back roads (and nearby rails-to-trails bike trails), snowshoeing, hiking our trails through prairies, woodlands and hills, as well as birding and star-gazing the wide-open evening skies. Nearby are art galleries, restaurants, shops and many opportunities for driving scenic roads along the Mississippi or back into the hills of The Driftless Region of Western Wisconsin. Seasonal art tours, The Stockholm Art Fair and other activities abound through The Mississippi Valley region along and near Lake Pepin.
