Mississippi Retreat is located within our campground, Mississippi Bend. We are located on Pool 9 of the Upper Mississippi Wildlife Refuge. We purchased the campground in 2007. The previous owners stayed in the house during the summer when they traveled from their permanent residence in Minneapolis. We loved the little house, and over the years, we’ve remodeled and added a three season porch. A house needs to be used, and we also decided to rent it out so it can be enjoyed, and not sit empty. On the front deck, you can sit and watch the egrets, eagles, pelicans, ducks, and geese on the 9 acre spring water pond, and the many songbirds zipping around from feeder to feeder. I think everyone in our campground feeds them! The house has charm, you feel like you’ve just come home as soon a...Mississippi Retreat is located within our campground, Mississippi Bend.

On the front deck, you can sit and watch the egrets, eagles, pelicans, ducks, and geese on the 9 acre spring water pond, and the many songbirds zipping around from feeder to feeder. I think everyone in our campground feeds them! The house has charm, you feel like you’ve just come home as soon as you walk in the front door. The kitchen is vintage themed, with new appliances, and everything you need to cook a complete meal, or a grill is outside for your use. The three season porch is quiet, and up against the bluff, with more bird feeders, so you always have beautiful birds of all kinds to watch. It also serves as a third bedroom, with a classic Ranch Oak sofa sleeper, complete with a 4 inch memory foam topper as well as the original mattress, and it is really, really comfortable. You won’t mind being the ones who get the porch! We remodeled the bathroom in the master bedroom, with a tiled walk in shower, with river rock on the shower floor. The second hallway bath has both a tub and a shower. Both bedrooms have comfortable memory foam queen sized mattresses. The living room has a sofa with two recliners, the love seat has two recliners, and a lovely chair and a half also folds out into a cot, great for kids. Televisions in both bedrooms, and the living room. The porch is for quiet conversation. The campground is full of friendly folks, and are more than happy to answer any questions about the area, and have been known to invite you to a nice campfire at the end of a day. We have a hiking trail, which will eventually take you to the top of the river bluff, overlooking a gorgeous panoramic view of the Mississippi River. We also have a paddle boat you can take out on the pond. Lots of small river towns to explore, good restaurants, lovely scenery, and fun events over the course of the spring, summer and fall. Great fishing, the house is perfect for fishermen who are in the area for tournaments during the season. More
