40 Acre Wooded Retreat Overlooking Lake Pepin With Lakefront

Delightful beach cottage with a spa tub
"Lion Downe" cottage, the perfect get-away with all the extras (new large hot tub, free WIFI, satellite, firewood, etc.) , located in the heart of the Rush River Valley, along the scenic Mississippi corridor with brand new large hot tub and expanded deck with unparalleled views of Lake Pepin and the surrounding majestic bluffs.

Stunning log home, as featured in Log Home Living Magazine, is nestled in the bluffs, with breathtaking views of Lake Pepin from every room in the house, and from the large deck. The serenity and cozy feeling is accentuated from the surrounding 40 acres of private majestic hard wood forest. 660 foot of lake frontage, easily accessible from the lake (but not from cottage up in bluffs), with variable sandy beach depending on the season. Located 13 miles downriver of Red Wing, near the Wisconsin Villages of Maiden Rock, Stockholm and Pepin. Just 60 minutes from Minneapolis/St. Paul international airport.

Fishing, hunting, hiking, biking, bird watching and relaxation right out side your back door. Shopping, fine restaurants, and quaint small towns with antiques, arts, crafts, and frequent festivals all within a short, pleasant drive along the lake shore.
