Great location for getting around Winona & area; fine hot breakfast with delightful hosts, Karen and Craig Groth. Clean, roomy and the best value all around. BHR


Enjoyable B & B

3.2 on October 28, 2015

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.


Charming, friendly, and convenient

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.


Wonderful Intown Inn

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.


Wonderful Windom!

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.


Winona Homecoming 2013

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.


Pleasant surprise

4.2 on October 18, 2013

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.


Very welcoming.

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.
