We stayed a couple of nights on a road trip around the mid-west. Turning Waters is immaculately kept, and an enjoyable place to stay. Nice comfy rooms in general and wonderful beds in particular. Sitting out on the porch late afternoon was great, and there are lots of places to eat within walking distance. Brenda is a real character, and...

Well, I can say this is the first time I have been called a "real character" and I will surely take that as a compliment and note you got a chuckle out of me. We enjoyed having you stay and hope you had a fantastic visit to the states. Life is about adventures, so you never know when I will...

We recently rented out Turning Waters for a wedding weekend. The b&b was so amazing. The rooms were beautiful and the owners were incredibly welcoming. They made homemade breakfasts each morning and made the wedding weekend wonderful!!!

I was in Wabasha for work and stumbled upon Turning Waters bed and breakfast. Turning waters is a home away from home. Brenda and Ford were very welcoming and greeted me with a sample of their delicious craft beer. Location is great as it is in walking distance of several restaurants and pubs- but who needs to go to the...

We had a wonderful time during our second visit. The innkeepers, Brenda and Ford, were very accommodating as they were last time. The breakfast is always good and the Great Lakes Suite was very comfortable. We like the craftsman style design and enjoyed time on the porch before going out for dinner. The location is great as it is only...

The room was comfortable and certainly interesting (In our room, only a fireplace separated the bathroom from the bedroom (though the toilet was in a separate room with a door)), but the star of the show was the breakfast. Phenomenal!

Brenda P, Owner at Turning Waters Bed, Breakfast and Adventure, responded to this review

We are so glad your trip included a stay with us. Yes, two of our suites are unique in that the "bathroom" area is part of the room and we find that most guests are couples and don't mind. I always suggest if someone needs privacy to come down stairs and relax in our reading room or living room or...

My husband and I spent three glorious nights in The River Room Suite. The suite was spacious, peaceful & relaxing. This stunningly beautiful inn was immaculate, warm and welcoming. Plenty of easily accessible parking. Brenda and Ford were friendly, fascinating and extremely helpful. They had a way of making us feel at home as if we were family. The breakfasts...

We were spoiled at Turning Waters and probably won't ever try another B & B because one could never compare. Clean, stylish, smart, welcoming, tasty, affordable... Brenda and Ford have it all figured out. All we had to do was put our feet up and enjoy.

Thank you! Now I feel spoiled by your great review. We enjoyed having you stay and the laughs on the front porch. We are forever thankful when guests enjoy themselves and share their experience with others. There will be plenty of places on our new patio to also put your feet up and relax.

We had a great first B&B experience at Turning Waters. Brenda and Ford were amazing hosts, who made us feel right at home and very comfortable.
