“Scenic Byway”
Review of Lake Pepin

Ranked #1,038 of 1,729 things to do in Wisconsin
Attraction details
Reviewed 1 May 2012

Would be improved by better weather but the views of the impounded lake are pleasant to look at. The small towns along the way fun to explore. The route climbs hills and circles the lake on both the Wisconsin and Minnesota Shorelines

We stayed the night in Pepin, WI after dining at the Harborview Cafe. The evening was enjoyable, the food and wine was delicious. We stayed the night at A Summerplace, a B&B in Pepin and within walking distance of the restaurant. The B&B was clean with pleasant owners, and a nice view of the lake from the rooms/deck but we couldn't sleep due to the incessant noise - the horns - throughout the night. Without exaggerating, every 3 mintues to every 45 minutes. I'm tired just remembering that night. One train would pass and I would think, okay, now it's quiet, now I can sleep only to have another train start blaring its horn. I'm telling you, DO NOT stay in any city along Lake Pepin. Although it is beautiful the trains literally scream along it constantly making it impossible to sleep. Ear plugs would not be helpful!
