Moondance Inn Rocks!

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.

The Moondance Inn was FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! the owners were Very nice and friendly, including their family dogs. The owners also did a wonderful job renovating the home to original vintage year. My spouse and I were there because my family gave me a birthday getaway as a gift. I never dreamed it would be one of the best gifts ever. It was so relaxing and peaceful. The whirlpool tub in the room made for a very romantic stay for the both of us. If you get the opportunity I would highly recommend staying there. The food they made was outstanding!! The town of Red wing also has so much history and things to do we would recommend a LONG weekend stay. Pat and Wanda

Power Vacation

4.4 on October 23, 2015

We spent a Sunday night at this B&B, in the Gypsy room. The house is absolutely beautiful. If your into old architecture, its a must see. Did not get to meet Chris, however Mike was charming. The real star, aside from the house itself was the housekeeper Lauren. She gave us a tour of the house while telling us of its history spilling out facts without batting an eye or sounding as if she was rehearsed. Great attitude and sense of humor. Most helpful and friendly as can be. Will most definitely stay again.

My husband and I were 4 days into a 3-week road trip and especially enjoyed the friendly hosts and the fabulous breakfasts that got our Sat/Sun off to an incredibly good start. We will definitely tell others and stay with you again.

This was by far the best bed and breakfast we have been to! The food was amazing and we were so impressed by the wine and appetizers they served in the evenings. The rooms were beautiful and we will definitely return for another stay.
