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.

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.

Great women’s clothing store
Is shopping a part of your vacation trip? You won’t find Nordstrom’s or Macy’s but you will find numerous unique stores to shop in Red Wing. Go Brazen is a very cool women’s clothing and jewelry store. The owner is welcoming, knowledgeable, and you don’t have to be a size 2 to find something you will love.
