LOVELY HOME ON THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER, SIX MILES FROM RED WING

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Red Wing

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 2.25 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

You will not forget a weekend spent at Windbeam House, 6 miles from charming Red Wing, Minnesota. Floor-to-ceiling living room windows offer spectacular views of not only Goose Lake but also the bluffs of historic Red Wing across the river. This tree-lined panorama provides breath-taking year round scenery, including miles of the Mississippi's famous fall foliage and ever changing waters. Because the house sits on the edge of the bluff above the lake, it is a perfect spot to sit and relax, watching a wide array of birds and animals, including eagles and flocks of migratory swans and pelicans in season, not to mention trains passing silently along the edge of the lake below.

This four bedroom rambler sleeps 12 with one full bath and two half baths, a family room, full kitchen and dining room. Only one hour from Minneapolis/St.Paul or Rochester, Minnesota, this home offers a retreat for groups from 2-12. And while it is hard not to be mesmerized by the view, it is also within a few miles of shopping, hiking, fishing, golf, snowshoeing and skiing. Not to mention an extensive arts community, restaurants, antique dealers, the Sheldon Theater and Treasure Island Casino.

This peaceful house is pet friendly and comfortably furnished in southwestern style. The master bedroom is equipped with a queen size bed and includes a private half bath. The other three bedrooms have double beds. Downstairs, the family room offers two full futon sofas.

Four generations of our family have come together in this home and we look forward to sharing it with you.

We live on a small farm just 6 miles from Windbeam House. We purchased our farm in 1976 when the farmhouse was about to be demolished. Much of our time since then has been spent renovating the house and outbuildings and creating the many gardens that surround Windbeam Farm.

Trudi Schaefer purchased this house in 2000

We inherited this property from Paul's parents in 2010. Immediately, we saw the potential for furnishing it as a guest house for the many friends and families who visit the Red Wing area. Womens Weekends Away and Fishing tournaments are two of the groups who find Windbeam House the perfect place to stay.

Practically every person that comes through the front door of Windbeam House is awed by the lovely view of the Mississippi River and the bluffs of Red Wing that greet them through the wall-to-wall windows of the living room. People tell us they sit in that room for many peaceful hours, watching the river, the birds but especially the eagles who perch in the trees below the house.

FAMILY REUNION

  • 5 out of 5
This turned out to be the perfect spot for our family reunion. It is so close to the twin cities that it made traveling there easy for all of us (from SD, Texas, MN, and NY). The house is deceptively large and the pictures posted don't do it justice. We had 8 adults and 3 kids staying at the house and there was plenty of room. The house is well stocked and easy to move right in to. The huge picture window kept us busy even on rainy days watching eagles and other birds and on nice days we went to the parks in Red Wing. For anyone who has interest in rock climbing, Barn Bluff is also a huge sport climbing spot (which we didn't realize until after we arrived with no climbing gear)
Trudi is a great host and we hope to make it back some day and do it again!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Jennifer for your lovely review of Windbeam House. We host quite a few family reunions and everyone seems to enjoy the amount of room and, of course, the picture windows. I know my camera shots don't do the house justice but I'll try again this summer when the landscaping greens up and the perennial garden is in bloom. Hope to see you all again.

WOMEN'S WINTER GETAWAY

Women's Winter Getaway
  • 3 out of 5
Beautiful view of the river and excellent place for bird watchers! The sunrises were incredible. We came with 7 women on a girls getaway, so sleeping arrangements were a bit of a challenge. The dining room was spacious for our meals. Nice, comfy couch in the living area with a big picture window to look out!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you had a good time. With a winter like this one it is nice to be able to sit in that warm, sunny living room and look out of those big windows. It always give me some extra peace of mind when I take a moment to sit there. Thanks.

PERFECT FAMILY HOME

  • 5 out of 5
The stay was wonderful. We spent hours visiting in the living room looking out over the river and seeing the lights of Red Wing. Even the 4 teens enjoyed visiting without electronics and watching the birds. The large dining table was perfect for making popcorn balls.!! I would recommend this home for any family retreat. Close to town, skiing and more.

BOOK CLUB VACATION

  • 4 out of 5
We were not able to reach the owner by phone or email to confirm or get final details the week before arrival. I booked another place the day before. However, the morning we were to check in, we received a call. The owner had been gone on vacation and was still expecting us. I had to cancel the other property and she gave us a discount for our troubles. The property is across the river from Red Wing and has a beautiful view of the river. It was clean, had all the comforts of home and worked well for our group.

Owner's Response: All I can say is I will never go on vacation again without an international cell phone and/or an ipad! I totally understood the guests frustration at not being able to contact me. I am also very glad that the group came to Windbeam House anyway and that they had a good time there. Thanks so much for the review.

COZY RETREAT

  • 5 out of 5
We went for a weekend retreat with our friend and loved this place. Its very comfortable for 4 families with kids. The house is well stocked with towels, kitchen utensils, blankets etc...Trudi was very friendly and walked thru' the premise explaining everything. The kids all hung out and slept in the large basement hall which had TV and several board games. The adults were in the bedrooms on top and had their own space to hang out. Lovely place and would definitely go back..

EXCELLENT VIEWS, GREAT LOCATION.

  • 4 out of 5
My sister's family, my dad and my family spent a couple of days here as we explored Red Wing. All of us greatly enjoyed the view out of the picture windows. The house was well appointed in terms of linens, kitchen utensils and necessities, and grilling supplies. The owner Trudi was very friendly and full of helpful information on things to see and do in the area. While we were in the area we climbed up to the top of Barn Bluff, spent some time at Colvill Park, spent some money at the Red Wing shoe store, did a sight-seeing boat ride with Rusty River Rides and cooled off with some ice cream from Flat Pennies. The hike up Barn Bluff and the ice cream were the highlights for the five kids (ranging in ages 12 to 6).
