    Penny is a most gracious hostess, and her poochie pal B.J. is a darling. Upon our arrival, we were greeted with wine and treats on the screen porch, just the norm for Sat. nights at the Octagon House! We laughed and talked with the other guests for a couple hours, and then had a lovely, private stay until breakfast the...

    This was the second time that we have stayed at the Octagon House in Red Wing, and for sure not the last. The atmosphere is very charming and elegant. Delicate fabric covers the walls of this Victorian style B&B. A beautiful view of Red Wing, MN from the rooftop, which you will not find anywhere else nor forget. The breakfast...

    We love this property and we love Penny. We always spend some time catching up and telling stories in her comfortable 'lounge' room, drinking wine and eating a few of her great snacks. Penny has the ABSOLUTELY best breakfasts. One of the friends we came there with has a nut allergy and Penny went out of her way to make...

    We had the most lovely time at the Octagon House in Red Wing. Penny, the proprietor, was a delight! The décor is lovely, the hors d'oeuvres were delectable, the rooms were lavish and Penny's breakfasts were outstanding. We will definitely return to this charming home-away-from-home.

    We had a very relaxing time at this very beautiful B&B. This getaway was just what we needed after the busy holidays. This B&B was not only beautiful but so well maintained. The breakfast was wonderful and the portions were very large. The presentation of the food was excellent. The B&B keeper was very friendly and shared many stories about...

    You would be hard pressed to find a B&B with a more friendly and wonderful hostess. Penny maintains a beautiful Victorian home, cooks the most memorable breakfasts you'll ever have, and generally makes you feel at home in the adorable town of Red Wing. I've stayed here many times, and I'm sure I will be back. I cannot say enough...

    My boyfriend and I have been to Red Wing several times for weekend getaways and every trip means a mandatory stay at the Octagon House. Penny is the most gracious, friendly host, offering great recommendations for local food and shopping, a beautiful house, and a breakfast you'll never forget. Once you go, you will definitely want to return and stay...

    My wife and I have been to many B & B's, but this was by far the best experience we have ever had. From hospitality and history to the decor, awesome appetizers that greet you at the door and the mouth-watering breakfast that awaits you in the morning. Penny's personality and sense of humor only adds to the fun! We...

    My husband and I just stayed here and we got in on a fluke. There was a cancellation. What luck! We had a wonderful time! We got in late, so we missed the appetizers, but Penny (the proprietor) had a glass of wine waiting for us when we got there. We stayed in John's room. It was absolutely beautiful. Penny...
