Beds, breakfasts, and breweries––oh my! Those three Bs may sound like nothing more than enticing alliteration, but for longtime innkeepers Brenda and Ford Pearson, they’re a lifestyle. Since they took over in 2015, the Minnesota Bed and Breakfast, Turning Waters, has been a haven for guests seeking an authentic experience in Minnesota’s stunning southern region. Between the heavenly farm-to-table breakfasts, hefty brew pours, quaint rooms, and beautiful location, Turning Waters redefines today’s weekend getaway.
Nestled in the heart of Minnesota’s downtown Wabasha, Turning Waters Bed, Breakfast, and Brewery has it all and then some. Whether you spend your time dining at local eateries, exploring vibrant farmers’ markets, or kayaking along the Mississippi River, Turning Waters is the prime location to experience all that Southern Minnesota has to offer.
Check out the Turning Waters website for a full list of recommended restaurants, vineyards, and bars to visit.
Learn firsthand about the history of downtown Wabasha
Ideally located just steps from numerous historic properties, parks, churches, and marinas, spend some time during your stay wandering the pleasant downtown area of Minnesota’s oldest city. First settled in 1826, Wabasha is where old city charm and contemporary culture of the Upper Midwest meet in harmony.
Wabasha’s population stands at just under 2,700 people, giving it that small-town character while maintaining a lively range of businesses and ways to spend your time. Perhaps best known for being the set of classic 90s film, Grumpy Old Men, Wabasha is a must-see for film enthusiasts and history buffs alike.
Unwind in style
Feel your day-to-day stresses melt away as soon as you step into one of Turning Water’s five comfortable suites and rooms. Masterfully decorated to optimize relaxation, each accommodation at Turning Waters is meticulously designed to give guests that familiar sense of home blended with a genuine sense of Minnesota. From the soft coloring in the Prairie Room to the calming king bed in the Great Lakes Suite, each space serves as a unique ode to Midwestern landscapes.
Raise a glass at Hoppy Girl Brewing
Sit back, relax, and sip on the wide variety of complex craft-beer flavors at the only bed-and-breakfast with a brewery on-premises. Rich stouts, refreshing ales, and unique lagers await you in the taproom conveniently located in Turning Waters’ back alley. With a constantly rotating tap list and mouth-watering pizza, you’re sure to make a friend or two at Hoppy Girl Brewing.
Each guest of legal drinking age is offered a complimentary beer or wine each night of their stay… but with these unforgettable brews, you’ll likely want another pint (if not more!).
Taste the flavors of Minnesota
At Turning Waters, there’s no need for pesky alarm clocks or early morning rooster crows. Wake up gently to the pleasant smell of sizzling bacon, fresh muffins, and strong coffee brewing from Brenda’s famous five-course breakfast included with every stay. With locally sourced ingredients like free-range chicken eggs and house-seasoned breakfast meat, Turning Waters focuses on using Minnesota’s freshest of seasonal farm goods.
At Turning Waters, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so those with dietary restrictions or allergies needn’t worry as Brenda and Ford are happy to adjust recipes upon request to suit all guest needs.
