Quaint B&B

3.8 on September 30, 2012

Awesome garden area/fire-pit plus off-street parking. Our rooms were comfortable and spacious, private bathrooms plus jacuzzi . Down side; some misunderstanding about a 'common' area for chilling beverages / getting ice or ice bucket / things available for guests after hours.

We had a great time and will be back!

4.4 on June 20, 2011

This was our first trip to Red Wing and our first stay at the Golden Lantern. Sioux and the rest of the staff made us feel right at home. She was very helpful in recomending places to see and eat. The house is beautiful and inviting, with a formal but casual feel. The breakfast was wonderful and a great start to the day. They do have three dogs that are the "Mascots" of the woud'nt even know they were there if they didn't love people so much:) The inn also has on site parking which is a plus!! We enjoyed our stay and recomend this B&B to anyone looking to relax in Red Wing!!

Everything was elegant, clean, & superb food and gardens. However, a 13" TV just doesn't cut it, this day & age.

Great location, showy place

Great location, a bit overpriced for the area, but much cheaper than many alternatives. Large rooms, ample breakfast, could be a bit tastier. Helpful innkeepers.
