This is the 2nd time my husband I spent a romantic weekend away here. It is so quaint and romantic. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a short getaway on the upper Mississippi

Wonderful Stay!

Everything from beginning to end was wonderful. This was our first stay at a Bed and Breakfast, and we picked a great one! We are thinking we need to make it an annual trip! Thank you!!

Beautiful and peaceful B & B!!

Great property and hosts. Stayed at many B&B's but this one is the best value yet.

Beautiful home, great food!

The Moondance Inn was even more beautiful than the pictures showed. We were welcomed upon entering and given a tour and a gift card for a restaurant downtown, which was excellent. My only complaint was that 1 of the 2 dogs that live on site barked A LOT. I am a dog person, but incessant barking seemed out of place for this environment. Otherwise, everything was wonderful. The food was outstanding and hosts were very welcoming.

My wife and I came to the Inn recently to go have a night in Red Wing for the Jennifer Nettles Concert. We stayed here before a number of years ago. We had dinner at Staghead's. The room, breakfast, and hosts were fantastic! We will be coming back again soon. Thanks!

Very relaxing weekend getaway.

We just needed some time away and this fit the bill perfectly. It was only a couple hours from home and Red Wing offers some beautiful scenery.
