Autumn along the Mississippi River means great views, beautiful hiking and biking, enjoying leisurely visits to the local wineries, and of course looking at the rich fall colors. Take a break and join us during this great time of year.

We have experienced many fun times and memorable moments at the Moondance Inn. Some of the best have been sharing time with families who have rented the entire home. This group consisted of Mothers, daughters, granddaughters, and grand daughters in-law. They were a fun group to be with and we appreciate the photo’s they sent.

The grand entrance to the Moondance Inn. As this entrance leads to so much more the city of Red Wing serves in much the same way. It is a beautiful, historic town on the banks of the Mississippi. It stands alone as a great destination but it also is a gateway to the entire Mississippi Valley that includes the Great River Road, Lake Pepin, numerous vineyards, bike trails, restaurants, hiking, golf, and so much more. Plan a fall get away. Stay with us at the Moondance Inn and enjoy all Red Wing has to offer.

Think Mississippi River. History, colorful characters, river towns all come to mind. A couple that stayed with us at the Moondance Inn rented kayaks and were professionally guided through the flooded backwater forests. This was the picture they took at sunset. This photo speaks volumes as to the beauty and majesty of this great river. Red Wing and the surrounding country side is filled with such natural wonders. If you would like to take this tour contact http://brokenpaddleguiding.com/. This great getaway is only an hour from the Twin Cities or Rochester.

Memorial Park, located at the top of Sorin’s bluff, is one of many Red Wing parks to explore. There are several trails that weave along the bluff and through the woods. Numerous picnic area’s are set up and the views are panoramic taking in the city of Red Wing, the Mississippi River, and the surrounding bluff country. Red Wing is a great place to vacation with plenty of fun, outdoor activities including golf, canoeing, horse back riding, bike trails, and so much more.

The Moondance Inn is centrally located between Red Wing’s two shopping districts, the historic downtown and the Old West Main/Pottery district. Each are a 10 to 15 minute walk from our B&B. We buy local. 90% of the meats we use come from Buchanan’s Market, about 4 blocks from our home. We do subscription farming during the summer with A-Z produce, an organic farm outside Stockholm, WI. Our pure maple syrup is produced by S&S Sugar Bush about 15 minutes from us. For special diet needs we shop at Simple Abundance, a health food store in Red Wing. We also shop the Red Wing Farmer’s Market, and finally, get our eggs from local, organic farms.
The Moondance Inn is comfortably elegant with woodwork and chandeliers over 115 years old. We have one of only three remaining gold gilded, hand stenciled ceilings left in private residences in Minnesota. All of our guestrooms feature antique furniture, private baths, and two-person whirlpools. We are in our 17th. year of business and strive to provide a relaxing and enjoyable get-away for our guests.

Minnesota wines have come a long way. Falconer Vineyards has been an integral part of that growth. Located just 10 minutes from the Moondance Inn, you can sit on an open covered deck, sip delicious wine, eat a gourmet wood fired pizza, and enjoy viewing a pretty vineyard surrounded by the bluffs that surround Red Wing. There are 5 other winery’s within a half hour drive from our B&B.

Guests often write in our room journals. We thought we’d share this one. It put a smile on our faces.

The Moondance Inn is tooting its own horn. I’m pretty sure that’s o.k. This link,
will take you to a site where the Moondance is ranked #12 in the state of Minnesota (there are about 80 B&B’s).

The Bayside Tap and Steakhouse serves perfectly prepared steak dinners at very reasonable prices. A guest at the Moondance ordered this 32oz. beauty. Wow. They have much smaller steaks, great Ahi tuna, and other tasty dishes. We highly recommend.
Oh yes. He ate the whole thing.
