This is a large two story home built in the 1920s (2,600 Sq. ft.) and is as 'Dramatic' as its views of Lake Pepin. A complete remodel of this charming home was completed in the Spring of 2014. It now has all the charm and character (Coastal & Nautical) of our other vacation home rentals in Lake City. A new kitchen with stainless steel appliances, solid granite counter tops and a wonderful laundry/pantry just off the back of the kitchen. There is also a very unique Cafe area, a large family room and a lovely 3 season porch toward the back of the house. Two (2) newly remodeled full bathrooms with ceramic tile throughout, four (4) bedrooms (5 bedrooms when the beautiful barn door is pulled to convert the living room into a fifth bedroom). The living room is quite spacious and has lots of seating, an electric fireplace, a queen size leather sofa-bed and 'dramatic' views of Lake Pepin.
The home has four (4) HDTVs, 2 BlueRay DVDs, cable and wireless internet.

The large dining room is furnished with a custom made farmhouse table that comfortably seats 12 and also offers magnificent views of Lake Pepin and the Wisconsin bluffs across the way. There is a first floor bedroom with a king-sized bed. The remodeled kitchen features granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and a unique Café space off the kitchen with a pass thru counter between the Café and the kitchen. The Café features a counter high gathering table that seats 4. It's a great space for coffee, dining, games, cocktails and, of course, just hanging out. A large laundry room/pantry is just off the kitchen and has great additional storage for all those vacation goodies everyone brings on vacation.
Off the Café toward the rear of the home is a second large living space or 'family room' that features another large flat screen TV, lots of seating and a beamed ceiling. The family room also has a dramatic view of Lake Pepin with a second wonderful bow widow seat.

About Sharon Hutchinson
We own and manage four (4) 'vacation rentals' in Lake City and this is our newest and largest Vacation Rental (sleeps 2 to 12). This home is so unique in so many ways and its decorating is consistent with our 'Coastal Style' of furnishings. While visiting Minnesota's South Shore you will feel as though you're experiencing a bit of New England's charm.
Sharon Hutchinson purchased this House in 2014
Why Sharon Hutchinson chose Lake City
Lake City is a very unique community and has the characteristics of a Seaside Community along the New England Coast. This spacious property is very much like a home you would find in the Coastal Northeast. The home comfortably sleeps from two (2) to twelve (12) and is conveniently located to everything in Lake City. Downtown is within walking distance, and did I mention that its views of Lake Pepin are quite Dramatic?
What makes this House unique
Lots and lots of living & dining space. A large living room, a large family room, a Café off the kitchen and a dining room with a custom built farmhouse table that seats twelve (12). An attached two car garage and a lovely outdoor patio and grilling space.

Amazing Stay despite the weather
We love this place, unfortunately the weather did not love us and we had to leave early. We will be back next year for sure. It is so beautifully decorated and feels so comfortable. Thank you so much for your help and concern Sharon it made our stay feel like staying with friends. We also recommend going to the Lake House for dinner, great food and service. We managed to have fun despite the blizzard that happened, guess that's life in Minnesota.
So sorry about this crazy Minnesota weather.....it was just as well the race was canceled and you got out early as Sunday was not great.
As I mentioned when we spoke remind me so when you return next year we will take care of you.....
Glad to hear you all still had a fun short cozy visit...and enjoyed the our house and the Lake House on Pepin Restaurant.
Spring WILL be here soon....see you again.
Quality place / Great location / Superb Value
Owner has thought of everything, place is very well appointed, communication was clear and timely. I would definitely stay here again!!
Beautiful, well-kept home right across from the river. We had everything we needed to be comfortable, cook meals and enjoy time with our family. Highly recommend and would definitely return!
Wonderful weekend stay
The home was so welcoming and a perfect setting for a spring weekend with friends. The large yard was great for yard games and the house comfortably slept all 12 of us. Lots of thoughtful details were present. Sharon was helpful at check-in and available for questions anytime. I would love to stay again!
This is great property to stay at in the Lake City area. Great views, great house, I would highly recommend to anyone staying in the area.
This is the BEST!!!!!
I and my family shared this beautiful home over the weekend of my daughter's wedding which was not too far away in Pepin. I could not have asked for a better venue. The house is immaculate, the owner's have thought of just about everything to make their guests comfortable (right down to a fully equipped updated kitchen), the beds were comfortable, and the views magnificent. We hope to come back in the near future!
