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!!!

What a fabulous time I had in Winona MN, when I stayed at The Village House Inn. It was home away form home but more. I went to Winona to attend a training/conference for my home business and made it a "me" time as well. I decided to stay in this B&B instead of the usual hotel. For a price that is slightly lower than the traditional hotel, I have a house with bedroom all to myself on my first night; It's a roomy home, have a huge TV, very well-kept and there's a grand piano. I ended up borrowing DVDs from a local video store; I packed the fridge with food I eat - its was truly home. I love the "fresh" and clean smell of the house. There's Keurig coffee maker and complete with house supplies. My housemaster, Anne and her son and daughter welcomed me and they were very friendly and warm. I locked myself out one night, and help was there right away. Anne is a thoughtful and tasteful host. It was a two night get-away I needed. I came back to my own home, energized and inspired. Thanks for a fabulous experience. I'd like to come back and bring my entire family next time.

We recently rented the entire house for a family wedding in the area. We could not have been more happier in our choice!! The Inn was spotless! Such history!! The air conditioning was the first thing that greeted us!! It had been a long hot drive and sure appreciated that. Each family member chose their own room and then we gathered together downstairs. Very roomy! We were able to do some outside games together as well. All slept very well as the beds were comfy! We awoke to some yummy treats left by our inn keeper in the morning. It was the BEST spot to stay. We were able to gather as an extended family, enjoy each others company in a very private, lovely setting. Great time was had by all & we would love to return again!

This is the note I wrote the innkeeper: Thank you so much for providing the perfect place for our family “Girl’s” Weekend! We loved every minute of time together, and enjoyed the whole house rental very much. The little touches you provided – great breakfast, lovely restful rooms, wonderful amenities – wow. We enjoyed Winona too, even though the weather wasn’t ideal. We had fun shopping and eating – went to the Vault and Bub’s – two favorites, I think. We also visited the Blue Heron and the winery up the road, Garvin Heights Vineyards, plus had pizza and watched a movie. We had to leave some things undone for the next time! We even talked about booking for the same time next year. No way could it snow on April 14 two years in a row, right? Again, thank you! We will be back!

Wonderful spot. Great common area that a larger group can relax together. Anne is a great hostess. She does not reside in the building but makes sure that you have everything that you need. Much better than any motel/hotel and about the same price.
