I booked two 2BR condos at this locale for a reunion with my mom and her siblings. It turned out absolutely perfect! The condos were spacious and very comfortable. The kitchens were stocked well with pots and pans, dishes, appliances and everything we needed to cook for 12 people. The property has an indoor pool and hot tub, but none...

A very good value in the off season. Go in March to see dozens of eagles sitting on ice floes. They don't list any prices online, and they don't always answer their phone when you call, but an e-mail or message will be answered in a day.

We reserved a condo unit several weeks in advance and even confirmed the reservation one week before arrival. However, when we arrived at the property at 5:00 p.m., the desk clerk told us our reservation had been cancelled. No amount of persuasion could change the situation and the desk clerk was non-sympathetic. Since we did not cancel the reservation, either...

My husband and I wanted a getaway that was peaceful, relaxing and pretty, and we got all three! The room was very nice and spacious; bedroom with king-size bed, living room with a fireplace and beautiful view of Lake Pepin, and a large full kitchen (much larger than expected). The balcony was small with 2 average chairs, looking out over...

The staff was very pleasant and we were allowed to check in an hour early which was nice. The rooms were spacious and clean. The indoor pool/hot tub was closed but we were told that before arrival and that was okay with us. We stayed in a second floor one bedroom condo and the price was right($180.00). I am giving...

Stayed at the willows for a week and a half while in between rental apartments. I asked the management if they had a weekly rate, or any kind of discount i could get for staying with them for the amount of time i was. They were kind enough to drop the rate substantially. As well as consistently going out of...

Spent much of my time on the balcony taking photos. With the fall colors and beautiful sunrises, as well as the lake view, this was the place to be. Our third-floor condo was larger than expected due to a mix-up in the office - a nice surprise! The shoulder season rate was very reasonable - would have loved to stay...

We had a girls' getaway and the 2-bedroom condo was perfect for us. Full kitchen, fireplace, 2 bathrooms, indoor pool and hot tub --- all wonderful. We enjoyed the sunrise over Lake Pepin from our 3rd floor room. There is a walking path along the lake, which was very enjoyable as well. We visited during the off season, during the...

Very nice and roomy condo. We stayed in a 1 bedroom on the second floor for one night at an off season rate of about $125. When sitting in the living room, it looks like you are right on Pepin Lake. You are about 50 feet from the lake. The condo was very clean with a full kitchen, a gas...

“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.”
