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!

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!

We were 7 women who are friends from college that stayed at the Village House Inn. The Inn was absolutely beautiful and very well kept. We were provided with food in the fridge and general kitchen which was meant for breakfast but also provided us with delicious snacks and drinks throughout the day. I am from Minneapolis and have never spent any time in Winona and was very pleasantly surprised by how beautiful that part of Minnesota/Wisconsin is and how much there was for us to do. We had a WONDERFUL weekend at this Inn and will definitely be recommending it to my friends looking for a weekend away!

This was a very nice place to stay but was lacking the breakfast part of the b&b. It is a self serve breakfast, so you miss out on the charm of the whole b&b experience. The house was very clean and nice and the person we met was really sweet. No dining service. So it was just really a place to sleep with a few sweets left out from the afternoon before. Not so appealing.
Our self-serve continental breakfast is perfect for guests who prefer to eat light and on their own schedule. A breakfast of homemade pastries, homemade granola, oatmeal, Greek yogurt, fruit, juice, and coffee or tea is prepared the night before so that its ready to go for early risers. The patio is a favorite spot for lingering over morning coffee, or just grab a muffin and head out exploring for the day.

I had the great pleasure of staying at the Village House Inn with a group of women I went to college with - we reunited this year as we all turned 50! What a charming place to spend time together. We slipped so easily into long ago patterns of talking: roommates in very comfortable rooms, with their own bathrooms, rather than bathrooms down the hall; little groups in the sitting area upstairs; and all of us in the very comfy chairs in the living room. We even enjoyed the grand piano as there was a musician in the bunch. We experienced a place well cared for, with delicous food, and where all details have been anticipated! Because of the comfort and quiet of the Inn, some of our plans changed during the weekend as we just wanted to spend more time there. Our group really looks forward to going back. I have done a lot of traveling for my career and I simply cannot recommend the Inn highly enough!!!
