Village House Inn

Comfort, charm, and hospitality! The Village House is a fully restored farmhouse nestled at the foot of the beautiful Mississippi River bluffs in Winona. When the house was being remodeled, thoughtful attention was given to preserving the original character of the home while adding all the necessary modern comforts, including handicap accessibility, private baths, off-street parking, zoned heating and cooling, and more.

As a small establishment—just four guest rooms—we stay on top of every detail. We strive to give our guests authentic and professional attentiveness, and we are genuinely enthusiastic about the beautiful Mississippi bluff country in which we live. And with rates starting at just $89, the Village House is an outstanding value! We’re the proud recipients of a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence which is awarded to the top 10% of properties world-wide that consistently receive high marks from their guests. Free WiFi. Off-street parking. Handicap accessibility.

Great place for the whole family

We rented the entire Inn when we went to visit my niece at college. It was a great space for us to hang out together, but still have our own rooms, each with it's own bathroom. Highly recommend it!

They went above and beyond to accommodate our check in time and upgraded us to the handicap room when they saw we had trouble with stairs. Extremely clean facilities and a very charming place. Will definitely stay there again.

Wonderful & Unexpected B&B!

I needed a place to stay with my friend while visiting family in Winona and found The Village House Inn online. The home is wonderfully decorated, well stocked and super clean! I opted to wait for the same day reservation discount and enjoyed the reward for my patience. Anne was friendly and made sure we had what we needed for our stay. Great locally sourced treats and breakfast too! I will stay again.

Fun and Relaxing Weekend

4.8 on March 07, 2016

We were in Winona to spend the weekend with family and the Village House Inn was the perfect place to stay. It was relaxing when we weren't with family and at a great location so that we could get to everything in less than 5 minutes. We look forward to staying the next time we come and visit Winona!

Christmas Eve

5 on December 29, 2015

We had a delightful Christmas Eve celebration with family and friends! The house is so clean, cozy, and warm. The house is very special to me as my great grandfather built the house and I lived there for over thirty years. And so it is extra special to me to see the great care Anne puts into each and every room! Well done and thank you for another wonderful stay! Philip B.

Second stay at the Village House Inn

4.8 on November 24, 2015

This is the second time I've stayed at the Village House Inn, and, like the first, I was not disappointed. This is a charming old farmhouse that is spotlessly clean and comfortable. I always look forward to staying there!

A Great Find

What a great find. The accommodations were excellent and the beds were comfortable. Very quite and restful spot. Light continental breakfast was perfect and everything was extremely clean. Will be staying there again when in the area.

Great Find!

So glad we found this hidden jewel! Lovely furnishings and quiet, relaxing atmosphere. Anne was very accommodating to work with us and our arrival time. Loved that we were able to come and go with no hassles. We will definitely be taking here again!

Pleasant Surprise

5 on March 28, 2014

We were in Winona for a night but didn't want to stay at the typical box hotel. VHI has a simple history, beautiful bedrooms/bathrooms, all the necessary amenities and and it was easy to work with Anne for arrival time and need for extra rooms. It was really great that my brother, sister and I could stay in the same house, have our own rooms...something we haven't done since we were kids. Breakfast was up to us and the refrig was well stocked with fresh items and other breakfast goodies. I have a feeling Anne will be seeing us again on our trips to Winona. Thank you!

Even makes work seem like a vacation!

I have been staying at the Village House for over a year, and some of my colleagues have been staying there for a long time. Our company's home office is located in Winona, and we come to town periodically. I cannot say enough about the homeyness and extreme hospitality that is shown each and every time. From the personal welcome on the sign at the door, to the delicious goodies Anne always makes sure we have, the Village House is my home in Winona. I feel very special and spoiled while I'm in town! Don't hesitate a moment in deciding to spend your time at this lovely home!
