Cozy, historic B & B

5 on December 22, 2016

The house was lovely, with some amazing historic details. It was decorated in a beautiful and somewhat quirky way for Christmas. The hostess was friendly and informative and seemed to genuinely care that we enjoyed ourselves. The room was spacious and well-appointed - comfy bed, electric fireplace, large jetted tub. The Sheldon Theatre was close enough to walk to, even though the weather was brutally cold. The hostess provided some hors d'oeuvres and wine the evening we checked in, which was enough for me to forego dinner. (It was not quite enough food to sustain my husband for the evening, however.) The breakfast had plenty of good, hearty food - including spiced grapefruit, chocolate chip banana bread, Dutch baby, ham, and a raspberry tart for dessert. It has only been a week since our stay, and we are already talking about going back.

Great place to get away!

We went to Redwing for a concert at the Sheldon Theater. Being able to walk to the theater was a plus not to mention what a great place the Moondance is. Our hosting couple were wonderful as well. Thanks Mike & Chris!

Had a great time, very relaxing, great food, always plenty of coffee and snacks during the day. Our room did have several areas that could have been less dusty.

The Moondance Inn B&B, is awesome, it’s a magical walk back in time! We were so impressed with the care taken to keep the house as close to its original state as possible. Mike & Chris, were gracious hosts! Their Pulli dog was a wonderful greeter too, a real charmer. We'll be back, Steven & Patricia

The Moondance Inn was a pleasantly serene place to base our visit to Red Wing. It is situated in the historic district and set back far enough to avoid the busier streets. We stayed 2 nights and breakfast was delicious both times.

We would stay again!

Over the top amazing

This inn far exceeded my expectations when I was booking. First of all it's beautiful and the pictures don't do it justice. This home has a wealth of history and they have done a great job preserving its integrity. It's homey and warm feeling and the hosts are not over burdening. Next, the food. Not a word in the English language for delicious could begin to describe the food. They mostly use locally produced and organic foods, which is something that brought great flavor and also made you feel happy to support the Red Wing economy before even stepping foot outside the door. the only thing that should deter you from a stay here is if you don't like dogs. They have 2 hypoallergenic dogs. Both extremely friendly and lovable. My boyfriend and I loved this romantic get away and definitely did not have a dull moment!
