The Great River B&B offers a
unique lodging experience: one "room" which is really the entire house. Our
cottage offers a private and intimate alternative to accommodations available at
other area B&B's, inns, or hotels.
The editors of Midwest Living
Magazine (June 1998) selected us as one of their personal favorite "special
places" in the Upper Midwest!
Stockholm, Wisconsin, is a very small
Mississippi River town (population: 97) that is near the Wisconsin towns of Maiden Rock
and Pepin and is also near the Minnesota town of Red Wing. We are only ninety
minutes from Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota.
Welcome to our Great River Bed
The property is a pioneer
Swedish stone cottage built in 1869 by the co-founder of the
village of Stockholm, WI having first lived in a log cabin
on the property starting in 1854. From our large screen
porch we offer peace and solitude on 45 acres of lawn, woods
and fields over looking Lake Pepin (Mississippi River). All
rooms are beautifully but simply furnished with antiques,
period and contemporary pieces, as well as extensive
original artwork. The emphasis here is on low-key
relaxation--walking, biking, bird watching (including one of
the country's largest eagle populations) or reading. We have
a large number of current books, magazines and a Bose sound
system for you to enjoy.
Stockholm is a picturesque
river village (pop. 97) in an area of great scenic beauty.
Driving time is about one and one-half-hours south of
Minneapolis and St. Paul. There are a number of artists and
crafts persons working and living in the area and the
interesting shops in Stockholm and nearby Pepin reflect this
heritage. Pepin is also the birthplace of acclaimed author
Laura Ingalls Wilder.
A 31 foot sailing sloop may be
chartered (2 hours or longer) for an adventure on Lake
River Roasters offers a full-service coffee bar. A number of
places with excellent food are available for your evening
meal including the well-known and respected Harbor View Cafe
ten minutes from our property. In the morning we return to serve a light
breakfast if desired.
