This was, by far, our best B&B experience ever! My wife and I took her father for an over-night sight-seeing trip to the area, and our stay at Turning Waters was the highlight of a wonderful trip. Our rooms were charming, and well kept, and our bed was very comfortable. I'd especially like to thank Ford for being an awesome...

Thank you! I told my hubby that if he got a review specific to him, he would get a bonus. Well the bonus is I am taking him to a B&B in Milwaukee and exploring all the new breweries so we can learn more for when we open our brewery on the premises in Summer 2016. He is a wonderful...

Our first visit here and just 40 minutes from our home! We enjoyed the quaint town of Wabasha and the beautifully decorated Turning Waters B&B! The chalkboard name plate on our room was the first unique touch that Brenda added to make us burst into laughter. She suggested a great restaurant (7 Fires Grill) and then we ended the night...

We are so glad that laughter was the result of putting "Rocky's" name on the door! HaHa, we enjoyed having you both and appreciate your purchase and donation of a nights stay to your local school. The brewery will for sure be a popular spot on our property and we look forward to having you both back! Thanks again and...

The owners of Turning Waters go above and beyond to make sure their guests have a great stay. We've been to many B&B's over the years and this one definitely stands out above the rest! As a side note - if you are into the craft beer scene like we are, you have to meet Brenda and Ford. :)

We love craftbeer and wine lovers because we are adding a brewery and bar on premise. Thank you for your kind words and turns out we might see you sooner rather than later. We enjoyed your homebrew too! Happy Anniversary! Loved hearing your story of how you met. See you soon. Brenda & Ford

Fabulous weekend getaway! We booked the Coniferous Suite, which has the whirlpool, fireplace, and plenty of ambiance! The house is gorgeous, the amenities unbeatable, and the owners are welcoming and sweet. This B&B is neither stuffy nor uptight; they allow you full range of the house and to come and go as you please. They provide beer and wine to...

We are so happy you returned a few years after your first visit to see that our house is basically the same as you remembered, but enhanced with the outside gardens being redone and a brewery taproom being added summer 2016. We appreciate you allowing us to take you on a new adventure to Flower Valley Winery, Lake Pepin Winery...

My husband and I visited Turning Waters in March for a getaway weekend. The B&B is located within easy walking distance of downtown Wabasha's restaurants, shops and the National Eagle Center. The home's decor is warm and comfortable and just lovely. The innkeepers, Brenda and Ford make guests feel welcome and comfortable. They are fun and easy to talk with...

We loved every minute of the weekend in Wabasha !! The accommodations at Turning Waters were exceptional. Wonderful way to spend a weekend away, thanks for all the pampering. Wabasha is lucky to have such great business owners in Ford and Brenda.

A little mid week getaway to recharge the mind, body and soul. What a perfect place to go. Brenda greeted us at the door, and we were instantly comfortable.

We spent a fun, chilly winter getaway evening at the Turning Waters B&B. We loved the warm rooms, fuzzy robes, and fabulous full breakfast. Brenda and Ford are very loving hosts. Great beer and wine tasting too! Thanks for a memorable anniversary trip.

My husband and I booked a last minute stay at Turning Waters and Brenda could not have been more accommodating. The house is magnificent and so charming, which describes our Hosts as well.

Thank you so much for thinking of us on your last minute time to get away! One night was too short so come back soon for some more fun and homebrew craftbeer! Ford and I will start to create more breakfast treats and masterpieces for the 5 course breakfast. Cheers until we see you again. Brenda & Ford

Turing Waters took me for two nights while a colleague and I were filming Wabasha's famous bald eagles in their wonderful wintering grounds along the Mississippi River. Brenda and Ford were exceedingly accommodating, providing early breakfasts, offering samples of their home brew, and providing a cozy and inviting place to stay. I'd return in a minute.

Breakfast is our signature offering and we were happy to accommodate you. Brenda & Ford
