Views From Our Unit

On the Water
Wabasha is great for boaters, with a large marina at each end of town, easy access to Lake Pepin and many islands. Miles of pristine backwaters in the national refuge across from the condo offer unparalleled paddling and fishing.
Due to currents from Lake Pepin and the Chippewa, this stretch of river always has open water, attracting large numbers of bald eagles who winter here, providing endless entertainment as they fish, soar, and sometimes squabble over a catch. Wabasha is in the Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife Sanctuary, and immediately across from the condominium is an entrance in the large backwater preserve known as Indian Slough and Big Lake, full of wildlife and hidden channels favored by fishermen and kayakers. In the spring migration the waters are teeming with ducks, swans, and white pelicans.

Wabasha is set on the west bank of the Mississippi River, 4 miles downstream from the foot of Lake Pepin and the mouth of the Chippewa River. It is the rare river town that is not separated from the river by a highway and railroad (these are set back, behind the village).
The river bridge at Wabasha (MN Hwy 60) provides quick access to the bluff country of western Wisconsin, with unparalleled biking on paved but little-used dairy roads, and great food at places like the Harbor View Restaurant in Pepin, Nelson Cheese Factory, Stone Barn Pizza in the hills, and Pier 4 in Alma.
The scenic Great River Road (Hwy 61 in Minnesota, Hwy 35 in Wisconsin) provides easy access to points north and south.
Wabasha is home to the renowned National Eagle Center, and is a master at small town festivals, including Riverboat Days, Grumpy Old Men Days, SeptOberfest, and Watermelon Days.
