    About this property

    Franklin House - Walk To Lake Pepin Or Downtown Lake City!

    Historic vacation home in Lake City
    Enjoy your vacation in one of the oldest homes of Lake City that has been completely modernized. While the beautiful mahogany banister and original hardwood floors on the second level reflects the glory of yesteryear, granite countertops, a slipper bathtub, and WiFi provide all of the comforts of the 21st century. The eat-in kitchen with large table and benches provide a wonderful space for meals. The open floor plan allows family and friends to spend time together between the kitchen and living room. A den with a large TV and game table provide a space away from the main rooms. A brand new bathroom with shower, and stacking washer and dryer laundry complete the main level. Three bedrooms upstairs provide plenty of privacy. The first bedroom is the “room with a view” of beautiful Lake Pepin. This room has a queen sized bed, while the second bedroom has two queen sized beds. The third bedroom is cozy with a double bed. A full bathroom with a luxurious slipper tub completes the 2nd floor. The house is a half block from the boat launch into Lake Pepin, and three blocks from downtown shopping and restaurants. For the fishermen in your family, there are plenty of walleye, northern pike, bass, and sunnies (for those little guys and gals!). And of course Lake City is the birthplace of waterskiing, so the perfect place for water fun! One block away from Water Ski Days festivities, or fireworks on the 4th of July, this is the perfect place for a wonderful vacation. Long-term rentals welcome during the off-season. Email for winter rates.
    Air-conditioned accommodations at this vacation home offer DVD players and coffee/tea makers. Rooms open to patios. Accommodations offer separate living rooms. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and separate dining areas. Bathrooms include showers and hair dryers.
