THE PRAIRIE HOUSE
Sleep in Pepin, WI
Hi! We're Amanda, Matt and Aspen Dog and we hope to be your hosts on your next Pepin, WI visit. We have two cozy rooms that we rent out within our home. Our house is one of the original farmhouses in the area showing up on tax records as far back as the mid 1800's. This house is one of the houses that would have been standing when Laura Ingalls Wilder was living in the area. We purchased and moved in March of 2018. We have been working on fixing it up and adding our personal touch since then.
Due to being a homeshare and the fact that Aspen dog lives here, we do not allow animals in our rooms.
We have two rooms for you to choose from. The "Queen Room" has one queen bed with an optional futon chair to sleep a potential three people. The "Twin Room" has two twin beds to sleep up to two people comfortably. All rooms share a first floor bathroom.
Free wifi for all guests. Username and password provided upon check-in.
2nd floor sitting room with mini refrigerator/freezer, microwave and coffee pot.
THINGS TO DO
We are right in the middle of the Great River Road Wine Trail. In Pepin you can find Villa Belleza Winery. In Stockholm you can find Maiden Rock Winery and Cidery.
Take a trip out to visit the Laura Ingalls Wilder Wayside, site of Little House in the Big Woods or visit one of the multiple cultural pull-offs along HWY 35.
Our two favorite shopping centers for unique boutiques include Stockholm and Alma. Each village has a wonderful array of independent shops showcasing work from local artists.
Take the time to get out on the water either on a sailing trip or kayak or canoe. We have a few outfitters we can recommend as well as sailing companies. We have resplendent fishing opportunities as well as some great hiking trails.
The convergence of the Mississippi and Chipewa Rivers creates magnificant backwaters that make for incredible bird viewing in addition to the fact that the Mississippi is a migration flyway.
Depending on when you visit you can checkout the Widespot Performing Arts Center in Stockholm, Big River Theatre in Alma or Sheldon in Red Wing for various shows. Additionally there are many venues available for live music on any given weekend.
