Our gal trip took us from Stillwater to Lake City and around Lake Pepin-What an amazing few days we spent with home base at Willows! Your view is the amazing expanse of Lake Pepin. The front desk personnel so helpful with where to eat and what to do in the area....Comfortable condominiums at a very reasonable fee. Safe, clean, and...

The Willows is a great place to stay. The views are breathe taking and the location is a close walk to many places. We watched many eagles from the unit. The unit we stayed in was a 2 bedroom with the capability for 8 people to sleep comfortably. There is everything you would ever need to make you feel as...

Beautiful view from all rooms overlooking Lake Pepin. It is one of our favorite "getaway" places. The units are cleaned and well -equipped. Fireplace for cool evenings and full kitchen. It is near downtown Lake City and even though it is on a major highway it is very quiet.

I had such a relaxing time at the Willows! My home was undergoing renovations so I came to Lake City! I love my stay at the Willows. Close to town so I could have a beautiful walk along the lake. The staff were so friendly and welcoming, I felt at home! I will definitely come back again.

Willows on the River must have the most beautiful view of Lake Pepin there is, and each suite has huge windows looking out at the lake and a little balcony, perfect for an evening glass of wine. We were so pleasantly surprised to walk into a full kitchen, living room with the beautiful big windows and a fireplace, and a...

We checked other places to stay in the area and this by far is the only NICE place. We loved this very comfortable condo and wished we had been staying more than one night. Our 2nd floor window was so large and left us a gorgeous view of Lake Pepin. We took a lovely walk into their small town and...

We spent a one night get away in Lake City. Our condo was a 2nd floor, one bedroom unit that looked to the east over Lake Pepin. I thought the price of $140/night in the high season was very reasonable. We were allowed an early check in as the unit was available and the staff at the desk was very...

Stayed in a 2 bedroom condo with kitchen. It was a very nice condo with 1 BR up, 1 down so there was privacy. Separate patio looks out over the lake/river with a view. Easy access to everything in town or Red Wing. Minor issues: it had apparently rained like a monsoon the night before which caused water to run...

Three of us stayed in a two bedroom condo Tuesday night through Friday morning. The condo was perfect with a large living area overlooking Lake Pepin and a fully equipped kitchen. We saw gorgeous sunrises over the lake, traveled south along the Mississippi to see groups of eagles at the open water, and enjoyed the pool and hot tub in...

“I would recommend the third floor as it has two level units and does not feel like you are in a hotel. Well worth the extra spend.”
