Amazing stay

5 on January 08, 2018

We had a wonderful time. We came on a Thursday, no one else there. We had the place to ourselves. Really enjoyed the king size bed. The owners were really nice and made an awesome breakfast.

A perfect getaway, warm friendly and inviting.

f you ever get the opportunity, this Bed and Breakfast is truly remarkable. From the golddust inlaid ceilings in the foyer to the whirlpool tubs in each guestroom to the warm, homecooked breakfast served to you by the friendlist people around. Moondance Inn is a treasure that should be shared. The warmth and tranquility of this home is exactly what is needed to escape the world, if even just for a day.

Absolutely wonderful!

We loved the Moondance Inn. Beautiful home, lovely antique and period furnishings, rooms were gorgeous. The owners were very gracious and Mike prepared excellent breakfasts. Also loved the Puli dog, Mister! Red Wing is a great little city right on the Mississippi River so you can watch the sun set down on the River Walk, not too far from the Moondance Inn.

Absolutely wonderful!

We loved the peaceful and beautiful ambiance of the Moondance Inn. Every detail perfect--the stately old house, lovely antiques, beautiful room, comfortable bed, handsome Puli dog, gracious host and hostess! The town of Red Wing is very historic and the Mississippi River at sunset along the river walk is alone worth visiting for. Thanks for a very happy visit!

Great anniversary get away

Great place! Food was amazing! Only concern was their dog barking the whole time during check in and during breakfast. The dog was also very scared of the guests. Didn't hear him once during the night.

The second time around

My wife and I stayed at the Moondance Inn last summer and decided to return this summer for a second stay. We booked a different room this time around but just like the first time we stayed, the room was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed sitting on the porch in the evening and the breakfast the next morning was delicious.

Beautiful home with so much charm and a great porch for drinks, coffee and a good book. Close to the historic downtown area and riverfront.

Anniversary getaway

We picked this bed and breakfast for our 25th anniversary getaway. It was everything I imagined and more. The hosts were friendly and the house was beautiful.

Very nice.

We had a king room witch I love and rarely find in Bed&Breakfasts. It was warm and inviting. The top floor was a great place to catch the nightly news without having a TV in your room. I enjoyed the big tub too.
