There are 64 rooms in total at AmericInn Lodge and Suites (Wabasha’s largest hotel), but the 15 themed suites are really what provide guests something above and beyond a typical hotel experience.
Designed to showcase several of Wabasha’s most popular attractions and personalities, options include the Chief Wapashaw Suite, which pays homage to the area’s Native American history; the Kimono Suite, decorated with hand-painted kimonos from the Wind Whisper West gallery; and the Cat House Suite, a nod to the historic Anderson Hotel’s trademark practice of furnishing rooms with a live cat. Others suites like the Mississippi Decoy, Northwoods and Fisherman sport outdoorsy themes with duck decoys, fishing gear and cabin decor. There’s even a Grumpy Old Men suite, designed by Great River Houseboats using authentic memorabilia from the movie. The Lark Carousel Suite, a creation of local Lark Toys, is perhaps the most whimsical accommodation with pastel colors and carousel animals carved into the furniture.
All rooms offer a mini-fridge, free hot breakfast, and access to the indoor pool and hot tub, making this a great setting for a winter getaway. Room rates start at $90; suites from $139.
