COME STAY WITH US!

We stayed for two nights and had a great time. The breakfasts were top rate and delicious! You won't go hungry. We also enjoyed a beer each afternoon from the micro brewery. The beer was very good and refreshing on a hot day. Brenda was a great host! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Lovely historic home and super thoughtful owner Brenda who took every step to make sure we were happy. Very private and quiet for a B & B. Delicious breakfast and brewery on site made the stay extra enjoyable! We'd come back in a heartbeat.

Recently spent the weekend at Turning Waters and had the best time. Brenda is a natural host, making us feel at home immediately. The rooms are thoughtfully decorated, comfortable, and clean.

We spent two weeknights at Turning Waters. Breakfast was excellent, as was the beer in Brenda's brewery. The bed was comfortable, street noise was quiet, water in the shower was hot, and the downstairs was cozy to hang out. Brenda was responsive and was happy to accommodate any needs. Over all a hospitable stay and I recommend a stay while also visiting other spots up and down the River Road.

This was our first experience at any Bed and Breakfast, and it was AMAZING! The house is beautiful and well-maintained. Our room was perfect... jacuzzi, king-sized bed, cozy, warm (we were there in January), and quiet. And the breakfasts... oh, the breakfasts!!! Brenda is some kind of wizard in kitchen!! Every breakfast was beyond incredible! So much delicious food with a clear dedication to buying local and organic as much as possible. We love and appreciate that so much!! The pub - right in the backyard - was a fun place to hang out in the evenings, sampling Ford's creative brews (or other beverages), chatting with the other patrons and just having fun! Everyone was so friendly! And even with all this awesomeness, perhaps what is most notable from our stay at Turning Waters, is how we were treated like family. It was as if we'd know Brenda and Ford our whole lives! They are wonderful people doing business the right way. We are confident you'll enjoy your stay, so you should probably book now. :)

This bed and breakfast is an experience you'll never forget! Brenda was super energetic, caring, and always available. Her breakfast is comparable to Michelin star chefs, with something new each morning. The backyard brewery is a treasure, fantastic and unique drinks each night of our stay. Will definitely make it a priority to stay again!

What a great experience. The house is exceptionally clean and well decorated. I was surprised at how quiet our room was, the bathroom was huge, we stayed in the Great Lakes suite and will certainly stay here again. Breakfasts were creative and no one would ever leave hungry. Easy walk to the downtown and riverfront! The Hoppy Girl was also a lot of fun, the drinks that we had all rocked!!

Turning Waters is the perfect spot to stay if you're looking for a beautiful riverside getaway! Close to Pepin, Winona, Red Wing, Trempealeau - so many beautiful spots. It's central to all of those locations, which makes it the perfect home base after a full day out and about.My husband and I stayed there for our minimoon, and it was wonderful. Brenda is the best hostess, and her breakfasts are delicious! She had great recommendations for us, and made sure we had everything that we needed. The place is so well kept, cozy, and walking distance to restaurants. We loved our stay, and will definitely be back!

We've stayed in many B&B's in our 22 years of marriage and there's usually an awkwardness at first as we go through the initial formalities. But this time, Brenda made us feel absolutely at home and completely pampered! Plus, she's a master story teller. :) The room was absolutely beautiful, the bed was so cozy, and the breakfast was amazing!

Who wouldn’t want to stay at a bed and breakfast with a cute brew pub in the back yard ? Brenda was an excellent host full of energy . The breakfast both mornings was homemade , filling and from scratch. Rosemary lemon scones were my favorite ! The room was nice , spotless , comfortable bed , I think our bathroom was was bigger than the bedroom portion. Fine by me ! The brew pub is adorable and lots of beer and seltzer’s to chose from . We would love to come back someday ! Thank you for a great Birthday weekend !

My husband and I just returned from a fabulous weekend getaway to Turning Waters. It is the perfect place to stay if you enjoy hiking, kayaking, visiting quaint boutiques, and of course trying unique beers and seltzers at the on site brewery. Brenda was an amazing host, serving the most delicious breakfast each morning. Rooms were very clean. Would definitely recommend this Bed and Breakfast to anyone - we hope to return again!

I really love this B&B! I stayed there in May - it was my second time staying with them. I love everything about it! The owners are friendly and fun, it's a beautifully decorated, cozy home with great atmosphere! The beds are comfy, the rooms are lovely, and the breakfast is to die for! The location is close to the beautiful river, and near enough to walk to a downtown pub! I felt safe, pampered, and well taken care of. I will go back! I highly recommend!

Turning Waters it's a solid five star B&B. The house is fantastic with a wrap around porch that's perfect for watching thunderstorms. Our room (Great Lakes) was spacious and inviting. Basically it's everything I like about old homes turned into B&Bs.But there are 2 things that make Turning Waters stand out. First of all, their garage had been converted to a brew pub and it's awesome. Not only are HoppyGirl's own beers good but they also offer beers from other local breweries. The atmosphere is super casual and friendly.But the real magic behind Turning Waters comes from the owner, Brenda. She is a powerhouse of positive energy and makes everyone feel special.When we ride the 3-speed Tour again I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.

Brenda is an awesome Innkeeper! She made me feel right at home. Turning Waters Bed, Breakfast and Adventure is a comfortable home-away-from home. I felt completely relaxed here. The B&B is beautifully decorated and features lots of happy paintings by a local artist. Went for a gorgeous hike at Whitewater State park to the Chimney Rock. Wowee what a beautiful view!! There are lots of gorgeous places to hike near Wabasha MN. Also went for a beautiful walk along the river after dinner. The Mississippi River is about a block away from the B&B and there's a nice walkway there. Even better...there is a brew pub on premises called Hoppy Girl Brewing with many handcrafted beers. I enjoyed a delicious triple berry beer. Love their logo with the Hoppy Girl! Turning Waters B&B is the only B&B in Minnesota with a brew pub! How cool is that? My bed was super comfy. I felt like a princess (had to use a step to get up into the bed). Breakfast was amazing! I didn't need to eat again until dinner at about 5:00. I wasn't hungry during the afternoon. Note: You could easily stay at this B&B for a FULL WEEK and still not enjoy everything Wabasha MN has to offer. Thank you Brenda for a wonderful getaway! Can't wait to stay again!!

The breakfast was absolutely delicious. Sitting on the porch enjoying a really good beer couldn't have been better. Thank you Brenda and Ford for our wonderful stay! Sally and Mike Wendel

She's a fantastic host! I highly recommend this B and B even if it's out of your way a bit it's worth the drive! The room we stayed in was comfortable and clean and extremely relaxing. I will be back for a third time! Thanks, Brenda.

My husband and I stayed the end of October early November and everything was more than we could have dreamed of. Brenda and Ford are amazing and treated us like family. The rooms were just incredible and comfortable with nothing left out!! The food was just beyond words Brenda is an excellent cook!!! The brewery in the back was such an extra touch that added to the whole experience. We want to thank Brenda and Ford for an unforgettable stay and look forward to staying in the future

My freshly minted husband and I visited Turning Waters over Wabasha, MN's annual Grumpy Old Men festival weekend in late February, 2018. We booked it as a Minimoon weekend get-away, and with it being our first ever visit to a B&B, we were cautiously excited. What we were met with once we arrived completely blew us away. Brenda and Ford provided us with such a welcoming experience that we both agree it may never be surpassed! Brenda's easy-going nature made us feel immediately welcome, and Ford's quirky charm had us laughing straight away. We were given a tour of the house, during which were allowed to peek into the rooms that were waiting for their guests to arrive. Every room has its own character and cozy charm. Our River Room Master Suite was such an oasis, both to wake up in as well as come 'home' to. The rainfall shower over the jacuzzi soaker tub felt straight out of a spa and there were plenty of throw blankets to cuddle up with in over-sized swivel chair. Each morning we were greeted with freshly brewed coffee and a new, 5-course breakfast you almost wished would never end. The food was delectable, locally sourced and presented in such a way that Brenda's passion for cooking and caring for others easily shined through. The weekend passed all too quickly. We would not trade our experience for anything and hope to make it back for many anniversary trips!

Made the trip to Wabasha from the Twin Cities just to stay at this B&B for a romantic weekend getaway and it was absolutely wonderful! Brenda and Ford were fantastic hosts and we felt right at home. The coniferous room was beautifully decorated and we enjoyed multiple baths in front of the fireplace. When the weather turned rainy on us, the perfect solution was one of Brenda’s pub Pizza’s and delicious home-brewed beers in front of a movie! Great food, great service, very clean and cozy! We will return!!

I am a bit late in this review but not short in memory as to how wonderful our stay at Turning Water's was!We had booked several rooms for my sons wedding - then Covid hit. The graciousness of our host, Brenda, in helping us sort out our initial room reservations was, well, gracious.She was a wonderful host throughout, even aiding in my other son's 'pants too big and in the wedding party' debacle (he had flown in from fighting fires out west).There were countless considerations and niceties at an exciting but anxious time for us, and surely, a difficult business time for Turning Waters.Brenda, thank you for your welcome, warmth, incredible breakfast, beautiful rooms, your advice and the lovely tavern to congregate in.Your B&B is lovely - and you even more so.

Just got home from an amazing weekend away. This is by far one of the best Bed and Breakfasts we have been to. Brenda has thought through every detail.

Highly recommend!

Turning Waters was a great stay. From Brenda's incredible home/local grown produce used in her breakfast feast! To her and Ford's Hoppy Girl Brewery out back that no matter the type of beer was always above average(way above). The brewery had great atmosphere with live music being played on the outside patio, The rooms of the house were warm and inviting and the beds were very comfortable.

Homey and welcoming. My husband and I stayed at Turning Waters for 2 nights to celebrate my birthday earlier this month. We had the Coniferous Suite which was perfect and beautiful. We loved the whirlpool tub and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was amazing with a main dish, meat side, scones, berries, honey yogurt with homemade granola, coffee and juice. And Brenda was so friendly, helpful and accommodating. She even had a birthday cake for me and another guest who was there celebrating her birthday. We would definitely stay here again. The attached brewery, Hoppy Girl, is an added bonus with great beer.

We spent the long Labor Day weekend at Turning Waters B&B in Wabasha and it was AMAZING! Brenda advised us of the best local places to visit during our stay, including wineries and dining. The B&B itself is a gorgeous, immaculate home that is absolutely stunning and the 5 course breakfasts Brenda created were so delicious! The craft brewery in the "backyard" - Hoppy Girl - had live music each night. They had a salted caramel beer that was out of this world!! We will definitely be back and would recommend this at the best B&B we've ever stayed at. Covid rules were followed to the letter and it was very safe and meticulously clean. Thank you Brenda and Ford for your hospitality!

We absolutely loved our stay at Brenda's Main Street Condo, and enjoyed the most amazing breakfast at the B&B. Brenda is truly an unparalleled host. Their micro-brewery, with its unique beer options and inviting outdoor seating were the perfect evening escape. We came to the Mississippi River bluff area to relax and Brenda helped so much to make that desire a reality - thank you!

Our room is A wish I could bring it home a fireplace with a jacuzzi tub and a shower for your morning. Wake up to a delicious breakfast and some great coffee need I say more!!!! The price is comparable to a motel with none of those amenities!!!! We will be back with friends this place is home away from home! The free beverage when you get there (us wine) in rocking chairs on a big old front porch perfect! Walking distance to anywhere you want to go and they have opened a new brewery in the back yard we didn't go see that but I know it's beautiful because everything else was !

Brenda is so welcoming, we asked about history of the house at breakfast one morning and she detailed it back to the original owners. The beer in the pub was great, I think we sampled everyone brewed there. We had visited the pub once before and felt very welcome and that brought us back to stay. The breakfast was outstanding, many items were organic and locally sourced including from Brenda garden. We will certainly return.
