Relaxing Atmosphere

5 on April 14, 2016

Wonderful place to relax and enjoy the weekend in beautiful Red Wing. Our room was quiet and inviting, there was also a great game room on the third floor that was amazing. We stay at many Bed and Breakfasts, and this one is a keeper. We will definitely be going back. Thanks for the hospitality.


Dream home come true...

5 on March 30, 2016

We stayed a total of three nights and four days to celebrate our anniversary. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Mike and received a wonderful historical tour of the house. You can tell that Mike and Chris invested time and money into preserving and maintaining the integrity of the beautiful home. Breakfast was served in a large dining room where Mike prepared a gourmet-style breakfast that was different every morning. During the day, we explored downtown, visited antique stores and bought a few things, and also made our way to the Tower View. People may not believe this, but Red Wing has so much to offer in terms of history, charm and surprise. At the end of the day, coming home to the Moondance Inn was such a luxury. The owners and their Puli dogs made us feel like we were a part of their household. Thank you for such an extravagant time! We will visit again.


Enjoyable and Relaxing.

My wife and I were guests in the king room Wednesday - Friday morning at the beginning of March. Our stay quiet and relaxing, just what we were looking for. Mike was a great host explaining the history of the home and he is also a great chef. Definitely a stay to be remembered and a destination we will return to.


Beautiful B&B and Great Food.

This B&B is one of my favorites. The house has been rehabbed and is in mint condition with a lot of original touches...gold dust ceilings and bronze fabric walks and Tiffany fixture. The hosts are friendly and helpful and the food was wonderful. They even gave out their recipes.


Awesome!

2nd Stay

5 on February 06, 2016

My husband and I have gone to Moon dance two times. We loved it both times. We went to celebrate an anniversary and it is the perfect weekend getaway. The breakfast in the morning was local ingredients and a local recipe. There was good coffee and good service. The rooms are beautiful private and unique. We plan on returning in the years to come. Redwing the town is also a very unique and quaint area with beautiful views of the Mississippi River

Innkeeper Response
