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 Wisconsin

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!

Such a perfect get away

The home was so nicely designed and decorated. It was walking distance from everything we wanted to access. I would definitely recommend this place and hope to stay again.

Second time staying at A Stone's Throw! The house is well stocked with necessities and fun extras! It's located within walking distance from many places including Chickadee Cottage and The Scoop. Thanks for a great weekend!

Relaxing and Comfortable

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Stonesthrow. It had all the amenities we were looking for and my wife appreciated the decorating touches. There is a lot of Lake Pepin history to learn and lots of places to visit. We were a little early for the fall colors as the trees had just started to turn. All in all it was a good experience.

Clean and well stocked

We stayed at a Stones Throw this fall. Cute little place. Very clean, well stocked and check in and out very smooth. Nice backyard with fire pit (wood included) and a nice grill. 2 bathrooms, but only 1 shower and only 1 TV. Nice walking trail along river you can walk too right from the house, and also some shops and a bakery. We would stay there again in the future, if we visit Lake City.
