This is a beautiful, clean home. It is a nice distance from downtown Wabasha and from local businesses and restaurants. We have stayed in many other bed and breakfasts in Wisconsin, Iowa and Minnesota so this was not our first B&B experience, by far. For this place, breakfast was good, the home was comfortable, and the rooms were pleasant and...

Thank you for you feedback. Our sincere apologies that you felt you couldn't enjoy our home like you wanted to. Yes, we are very different from other B&B's in that we do spend majority of our waking hours in the B&B as it is our home and office space. We do a lot of entertaining and have many family and...

We had such a wonderful time at Turning Waters B & B September 8 & 9, 2016. We went down to Wabasha for a short get away and kayaking (see review of Broken Paddle). Turning Waters was recommended by our daughter and we couldn't have been more pleased. First thing that struck me was the cleanliness and no musty orders...

Stayed during wedding weekend. Lost my key and had to wake Brenda at 1:30 am to let me in...she was a trooper! Very tasty breakfast and would love to go back when it's not a busy wedding and enjoy it more thoroughly! Very clean and comfortable. Awesome bed! Rented the suites!

Michelle, I am so glad the wedding weekend was a beautiful one and that you all enjoyed your stay. As for the 1:30am wake up call, I would rather have it be me and you safe inside the house then another guest:) See you again when you can come rest and relax. Brenda & Ford

The owners of this wonderful "home away from home" really pull out all of the stops. The rooms are spacious, the beds absolutely heavenly and the hospitality not to be outdone! Brenda and Forfd have created a magnificent place to relax, visit and enjoy a bit of true mid-Western hospitality. Do not miss breakfast, an epicureans delight to be sure!...
