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.
