This was our second visit to the Golden Lantern Inn. We were greeted by Pat, one of the owners. She welcomed us and even helped carry our suitcases up the stairs. Both times we have stayed at the Golden Lantern we have stayed in the Hideaway Suite. It is very spacious, and a nice combination of old fashioned elegance and...

The house is beautifully decorated, complete with antique furniture and decorative pieces. We were very comfortable and cosy in Helen's suite. The hosts ensured our comfort and we were pampered by their attention to detail - fresh chocolate chip cookies and gourmet breakfasts daily. We were also given the option to have breakfast in bed! Good location near restaurants and...

We only wished we could have stayed longer! The Golden Lantern is a wonderful B&B. We plan to return this summer so that we may enjoy the gardens as well!

The house was nicely decorated for the holidays, although my first impressions were somewhat disappointed by the overall cleanliness and presentation of the B&B. There were several items scattered about the cupboards and shelves in all the common areas. Stayed in the Hide-Away Suite. Interesting history - it used to be an attic that was made into a beautiful suite!...

The Golden Lantern is a wonderful place. While we normally like staying in older houses, this Tudor house from the 1930's has a variety of very nice guest rooms and suites, a very comfortable library with wood paneling, and a beautiful dining room. We stayed on the top floor, which was nice and warm on a winter night that went...

The Golden Latern Inn in Red Wing Minnesota was a wonderful weekend escape. The Inn is a beautiful piece of Red Wing's history located in the heart of the city. The charm of the Inn is felt as soon as you walk through the front door. Each suite offers a unique layout and allure. The grounds of the Inn were...

We had a great time at the Golden Lantern Inn. Pat and Gary run a peaceful and relaxing Inn. The accomodations and food are excellent. We love the hot tubs in the rooms, the cookies and the cleanliness of the Inn. What a wonderful get away for anyone looking for time with their spouse or just a quiet night away....

Pat made us feel right at home, even from the beginning when we had to change our reservation dates twice! My husband and I had one room and our 11 & 13 year old daughters stayed upstairs from us - both accomodations were lovely, clean and quiet. The girls loved getting the rose petal turn-down service! The home style and...

We had a wonderful time at the Golden Lantern. The owners are hospitable and the rooms are lovely. Take your own hairdryer and toiletries because the Golden Lantern only furnishes shampoo and soap. Hair Dryers are available but are not in the rooms. Also, if you are wanting to sleep in, you may want to check with the Inn to...

The Golden Lantern is my first choice when spending the night in Red Wing. My sister and I have visited for the past 3 years for shopping and fun. We always appreciate the charming accommodations and wonderful ambiance of the Inn. The English Tudor exterior is awesome, but you need to step inside to see the wood craftsmanship detail of...

“Helen's Suite has an attached sitting room with stove that was perfect - one of us had to work at the table in the corner of the bedroom.”
