Reviewed yesterday NEW

Had an enjoyable weekend in the Superior Suite. The breakfasts were delicious and the home brew samples were delightful. Brenda was enjoyable to talk to and very helpful in finding things to do and places to eat in the area. Can't wait to go back. Would recommend this B&B to anyone.

We so enjoyed staying with Brenda from the Adirondak chairs on the porch to the delicious breakfast served in the morning. She made special dietary accommodations with a smile, which was much appreciated. I walked from the BnB don to the Mississippi (2 blocks) and enjoyed the views of the sunrise, eagles and the river.

We love our front wrap-around porch and it was a great kickoff to porch season with you here. It is my pleasure to learn new tricks making breakfasts that taste great for all dietary needs. The walking path along the river is a great place to start your mornings. So glad you enjoyed yourself and see you again! Brenda

We were delighted to have you back and meeting you. Breakfast is just as important as a great bed to sleep in and we are thankful we offer both! Our groundbreaking on the brewery pub has started so we are as excited as you are. See you again soon and enjoy all that our area offers all year long. Cheers...

The house is gorgeous and the rooms are perfect - any style and price range you would want. Walking distance to the river and the National Eagle Center. The hosts went out of their way to make sure all our needs were met. And it will be nirvana when they open their micro-brewery on premise as we had the chance...

Nirvana for sure! We broke ground yesterday, April 5th, 2017, and the pub will be open by June 2017 so come back and visit us. The bus will be taking brewery tours into WI as well since a new one is opening about 25 minutes from us. Cheers and Thanks for all the St. Patty's Day fun. Brenda & Ford

Great stay at this beautiful historical home. Delicious, gourmet breakfasts, friendly hosts who go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. Beautiful home in a quaint town blocks away from the Mississippi River. Don't miss the national eagle center. Patty and Becky

Patty & Becky it was great to meet you both and have your brother and wife here as well to share in a beautifully sunny and semi warm day. I'm tickled that you enjoyed s'mores with us as well.

Great visit to Turning Waters. Brenda was a splendid host. Great location, very homey, fabulous breakfast and beer tasting was an unexpected extra. Wabasha itself was a surprise. We visited the National Eagle Center and learned a great deal. Bald Eagles are ubiquitous in the area due to unique topography.

Brian, thank you and yes, Wabasha and the area has many eagles especially in the cold winter months. The river doesn't typically freeze over completely so fishing for the eagles is prime. Raised in Kellogg, MN, just 6 miles away makes home worth coming home too:) Cheers to seeing you again. Brenda & Ford

We have stayed at over 50 B and B's over the last 25 years and this by far is in the top 3. The home is so welcoming and warm. This was our second visit here we love it so much. The inn keepers are your friends/family the minute you walk in the door. Morning breakfast is scrumptious and plentiful....

We stayed at Turning Waters for the 2nd time a month or so ago. They have new ownership since the last time we were there and our stay was outstanding.

Had a great stay and experience at Turning Waters B&B. The "Great Lakes Suite" was clean and comfortable. Brenda is an excellent host, and breakfast was delicious. Within walking distance, we enjoyed a Mexican dinner at Los Portales, and had a great time eagle watching at the National Eagle Center. Great weekend adventure!

Thank you Linda! We are glad you made the trek down to see us and your famous photo at Los Portales will live on forever:) So glad you had the chance to experience our National Eagle Center.
