Our family gathered from 5 states in early May for a yearly celebration. Great house for any kind of get together. Very well stocked and organized, especially the kitchen. The cooks in our group loved being in the kitchen.
Plenty of outdoor activities minutes away, eagle watching was a hit. A natural paradise; trees leafing out, wildflowers starting to bloom, parks, biking trails, locals foraging wild mushrooms.
Or, you can just chill on the great south facing decks and soak it all in.
Cool historic river town of Red Wing just over the hill.
I rented Country Cove for our SCW (Sisters and Cousins Weekend) 2015! It worked just perfect for our group of 12 women ranging in age from 28-72! We have stayed at many places in the 15+ years that we've been getting together, and I would say that this house had the best stocked kitchen. Anything you could think of was supplied here. The property is close enough to Red Wing for activities and yet it's so private and quiet that you can enjoy the outdoor space and feel like you've got the countryside to yourself. The huge deck was the perfect spot for us to hang out and enjoy some wine and munchies. The bedrooms and bathrooms were just the right number for us to not feel like we were on top of each other. We were all completely satisfied with this rental property and would definitely stay here again in the future!
A group of close friends rented this house for a weekend, it was just what we wanted! It is out in the country, quiet, peaceful, and relaxing. The owners were very nice to work with. The house was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. Red Wing was a very fun town to go and explore. Highly recommend staying here!
The house was perfectly located and equipped for a winter, weekend getaway! The house felt comfortable and never cramped with our group of 16. The kitchen was stocked with everything we could want to cook meals for the group and the extra refrigerator in the basement was useful.
Most of our group members spent the day skiing at Welch Village Ski area which was only a few miles away. For those who didn't want to ski, they enjoyed time snow shoeing and playing games by the fire.
We are already planning a return trip!
Wonderful lodging for a long ski weekend. A short and scenic drive to the Welch Village Ski area, which after 40 years of Midwest skiing we found it's variety and diversity of runs equal to almost anywhere in the midwest. Cross country skiing on the Cannon River Trail was also a highlight as it passes by the towering bluffs along the Cannon River.
Plenty of room for 20 people to stay in comfort and style. Lower level walkout has windows on all sides so it looks and feels just like ground level. Great place for our teenagers to have a place of their own without bothering the adults above, as it was well sound insulated.
Only 5-1/2 hours from northwest suburbs of Chicago, the last 1-1/2 hours on the scenic Great River Road where we spotted 2 bald eagles perched in the trees.
Looking forward to my next visit to the Country Cove House!
Our family of 16 had a fantastic New Year's Eve get-together/getaway in this home. We found it to be clean, warm and inviting. It is also well-stocked....there truly was nothing we needed that we couldn't find in the home. We appreciated how everything was labeled (light switches, kitchen drawers, etc.), making it easy to be a guest there. We especially enjoyed the "bunk room" for the kiddos in our group and the large dining room table where we all could gather round, eat, play games and visit. Finally, Ken was superb to work with. He was very communicative, answered all of our many questions and assisted us in every way possible. We hope to be able to return one day!
