The house has many outstanding features including gorgeous wood floors, timbers & staircases, historic burlap over tin wallpaper, a goldleaf ceiling & antiques in the rooms. The beds were extremely restful. And the large Jacuzzi is wonderful to relax in. The breakfast was very nice with excellent coffee, very fresh orange juice, pastries, fresh fruit and even a plant-based sausage like Patty for this nonmeat eater. A nice touch are the hors d'oeuvres and very fine wine set out in the late afternoon/early evening. They have a fun, sort of recreation room in the attic with games, TV, books & comfy couches and chairs. It's an easy approximately seven block walk to downtown. The Innkeepers are hospitable and welcoming as well as sociable. My only criticism might be is that it's a little pricey on the weekends.

As I have a very bad back I found it difficult not to have a shower in the room, nor comfortable seating. The home itself is beautiful and the owners very friendly. We knew that by not coming on a Friday or Saturday we wouldn't be treated to wine and cheese but it would be nice to offer this at anytime. Mr. Mister is quite a treat.

The room was great and the brief history was fun to hear about. We had the whole place to ourselfs it felt like we where in our own Victorian home!! The owner Mike gave us the discounted rate for the midweek after I had agreed to pay the full fare via the internet. So it saved me about $60.00. Honesty and not to shabby of a chef eighter. The only real let down was the majority of the town closed at 8:00. thanks to Libertys for staying open until 11:00.

This historic B&B is stunning. Everything about our stay was welcoming. Since we stayed 2 nights, we enjoyed vouchers for dinner. After skiing nearby, we were achy and needed some pain reliever and a movie. There were many options for grocery and drug stores nearby and neat shops in the downtown area, where I found unique gifts for my mother - and myself. Breakfast in the morning was perfect and the hosts were exceptional. The only complaints: I was a little disappointed that daily service was just for towels. The one waste basket in our room filled up fast and I missed having the bed made. The second complaint was a little larger: The owners had a dog that would bark frequently throughout the day. My thoughts are: Dogs aren't viewed as being very clean, they tend to bring dirt in from outside and shed. Not that I felt the dog was particularly a problem in this way, but having him in the house could be a problem for those with allergies. The biggest problem for me was that we came to a B&B to have a romantic weekend, to rest and relax, to get away from the barking dogs at home. It was very distracting and made it nearly impossible to take a nap in the afternoon. I'm a dog lover - I'm not saying to get rid of the dog - but I am saying that for the time you are "at work" when you are at the B&B, perhaps he should stay "at home" next door, that's all. As much as I hate to say it, if there wasn't so much barking, I would have given this B&B a 5-star rating.

Our Moondance Inn stay was great. The home is absolutely lovely! Mike and Chris were wonderful hosts and their cooking is fantastic! They were very helpful in guiding our activities in Red Wing as well. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. I only put 4 stars due to the shower set up -- there was a hand held shower nozzle in the tub. Otherwise, perfect!

Loved the house and the stories Chris told about the renovation. It was fun meeting the other couples and breakfast was wonderful. We plan on making this a yearly get away!

We enjoyed the Moondance. We're not B & B people, so we were not used to the intimacy of the situation. But the hosts were very warm and helpful. The rooms were adorable and cozy. The breakfasts were truly gourmet.

We found the room online in a google search. The price was right and the location was great for a quick trip away from Minneapolis to enjoy the nice winter weather. When we got there the house was beautiful and the room was comfy. The owners helped us find a place for dinner and the breakfast they served was delicious.
