The lower suite (#1) occupies Danish shoemaker J. K. Peterson’s original stone cottage built in 1879. Peterson’s kitchen was in the basement; yours nestles into an open cupboard in a corner of the sitting room. Families or other larger parties enjoy use of the pullout couch and a dining table that extends to six feet.
A door next to the entry leads to the bedroom and ensuite bathroom. An enchanting mix of Amish, Shaker, and Traditional American furnishings create an Old World ambiance infused with modern comforts and convenience.
At the rear of the porch a private entry and staircase leads to the upper suite (#2). As airy as the lower suite is cozy, it overlooks the village and offers glimpses of the village park and Lake Pepin. The main bedroom includes a sitting area furnished in wicker.
Adjoining it is a charming, smaller room with twin beds–perfect for children or other companions who like a measure of privacy. Each room has independent access to the expansive bathroom, which has a soaking tub and shower. The suite is equipped with a coffee maker, microwave, small fridge, and eating utensils. Like the suite below, it also has an ample supply of books, cds, and picture puzzles.
