This was our first time staying at a B & B in Winona, MN. The process was fairly easy, however getting in contact with the owners to confirm my room was hit and miss. The location was convenient and both of us were very thankful that our room was separate from the main house. The main house smelled strongly of cigarette smoke - which triggers my allergies. Karen was cordial and even sat and talked with us for a little bit while we ate our breakfast (which was delicious and perfect amount of food). I would recommend this place, however if cigarette smoke is an issue, than I suggest getting a room separate from the main building.

Windom Park B&B was an excellent base for our visit to Winona. The location is very convenient for all of our favorite Winona activities: plays at the Great River Shakespeare Festival, biking around the lakes, walking around the town, and eating at the many great restaurants and coffee shops. The B&B seems to attract very interesting guests--we thoroughly enjoyed our conversations at breakfast. Karen and Craig go out of their way to be friendly and helpful hosts.

We had a wonderful time at the Windom. We were out of the room at the time of the wine and cheese, but Karen brought a caraff of wine to the room anyway.

Very nice hosts and wonderful breakfast. Afternoon wine and cheese was a lovely addition. The room was excessively fussy and way too Victorian crowded and over decorated. The overly decorated rooms and walls obscured the true beauty of the house. Would gladly give up the claw foot tub for a modern shower.

Our second stay in your lovely home! We were greeted with hugs and a delicious carafe of wine! Rooms are charming and very comfortable beds. We will return again and again. Thank you Karen and Craig (and the cute doggies!)

this was only the second time I stayed at a B&B. the rooms were smoky, porch was not clean, and some tiles needed repair. Owner did not make me feel welcome.

We loved our stay at Windom Bark B&B, the staff, and the ambiance. The owners made our stay even more special and were accommodating with requests to have flowers delivered. It was a great location for my new fiance and I to celebrate our engagement, which happened during our stay.

We stayed in Jamie's Library Suite, furnished beautifully with plenty of room even if we had brought one of our grown children. We appreciated the coffee service outside our door before breakfast, which was outstanding. Very nice hospitality hour before dinner time as well.

Karen was a wonderful host, and even though I was the only guest the night I stayed, she did not cut corners on service. And the breakfast was delicious.

A lovely B&B in a large Victorian home in Winona, within walking distance of all of the downtown and the Mississippi River. Craig and Karen are welcoming and comfortable hosts, offering wine, cheese, crackers, and conversation in the late afternoon. The rooms are non-smoking, but a bit of cigarette smoke is detectable in the common hallways. Winona is on Amtrak's Empire Builder line, so you can enjoy a car-free stay there if you wish. The theater for the Shakespeare Festival is about a 10-minute walk from the B&B. Many of the Beethoven Festival venues, however (including the Marine Art Museum), are not within walking distance.

We stayed two nights at Windom Park. It was a comfortable home with a great sitting room that we could visit with friends that were with us. Karen was very friendly and had great ideas for where to go and what to see. The breakfast was good and served very elegantly with artistic presentation. The only negative was that the people in the home are smokers and the house smells like it. Being non-smokers we were very sensitive to this and it made us uncomfortable. My husband and I had to turn the air conditioner on at night so we could get fresh air in the room. We probably would not return for this reason.

Beautiful relaxing room for a graduation weekend.

We came late and left early so we didn't get a chance to try the breakfast, but Karen was very sweet to arrange some fruit and bread for our early departure. The B&B is in a beautiful historic house in the center of Winona.

I truly enjoyed my stay at Windom Park. The owners went above and beyond to accommodate myself and my group of friends. I would definitely stay there again!

We celebrated our anniversary with a cozy night away. Windom Park was warm, cozy and comfortable. We had one of their beautiful loft rooms. Craig and Karen are wonderful hosts! The breakfast was awesome, the wine and cheese cocktail hour a delightful plus. We plan on returning soon.

Windom Park B and B is a lovely place to spend time. The owners are delightful, attentive and offer privacy or social time with others, whichever you choose. The food is prepared very well and served with artistry. Winona has many events all year 'round. We will probably return to the Windom for the summer Shakespeare and Beethoven festivals.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay of four nights. Craig and Karen were very accommodating with our dietary needs. The breakfasts were delicious and varied and showed Karen's personal touches. We enjoyed the afternoon wine and some interesting conversations. Judy and Ed

Overall the plce was beautiful. The owner recommended a nice restaurant for us for dinner which was fantstic. We were a little disappointed, however, as their welcome brochure stated that they would serve wine and cheese between 5:30- 7:00 but there was none out and we were not offered any. We did have a 13 year old with us, however, we as adults would have still enjoyed the wine and he would of enjoyed the cheese. On the other hand, my 13 year old was offered cereal at breakfast which he loved.

We go down to Winona for a conference every fall and stay at Windom Park. It is a charming, relaxing, and beautiful home. Karen and Craig are so welcoming and always good for a laugh during wine and cheese hour. I LOVE the rooms - I've stayed in 3 and love them all - so cozy. Can't wait for this fall!

Excellent, friendly service as usual. We have stayed here four times and have always found the Karen and Craig to be very friendly and great hosts. The breakfasts are wonderful and the afternoon wine and cheese on the patio is a nice addition.

Lovely, enchanting place. Very beautiful construction. Interesting people to talk with. The room was lovely and very clean. The breakfast was very good. We were a bit turned off by the smell of cigarette smoke as we entered. Luckily it must not occur in the house, so the smell was not strong. It would be nice if lemonade or water were also offered in the afternoon.

I would definitely stay at the Windom Park Bed & Breakfast again. The staff was incredibly accommodating and friendly. The rooms were clean and comfortable.

Would recommend that the proprietors inform guests prior to making reservations that there is smoking in the private quarters which spreads into the rest of the home. For guests who have allergies this is a very important detail. With regards to dining, the table was set very nicely and the food tasted great until I found three hairs in my food. Also, another guest found hair in their food. Would not stay again because I am allergic to smoke.

My wife and I just came back from Windom Park B&B after a "Fall Color" tour of the Mississippi River area. The B&B is easily reached, located in a College Town (Winona State University) and well maintained. All of the bedrooms, dining areas and seating/reading areas were beautifully appointed and comfortable. There was seating on the front porch for chilling as well. Very nice breakfast at 9:00am, wine and cheese at 5:30pm. Complementrary soda, diet soda and water in a refrigerator on our floor. Parking in a lot, drive-way and excellent street parking. (We brought our 21' boat and had no problems) Innkeepers were very accomodating and really knew what they were doing and were flexible with our travelling schedule. We would definetly stay here again. Peggy and Kevin Lynch, IL
