Moulin Rouge Houses B&B

Moulin Rouge House, originally known as the historic Hunt House, was purchased in 2018 by owners, Chris Crowell and Kristin Fisher with the intention of restoring the home to its original Queen Anne style beauty.  Both Crowell and Fisher have a passion for hospitality, creating beautiful spaces and preserving history.
Named after the Moulin Rouge Beauty Shop, located in the home’s parlor from 1940-2015, the home was originally built in 1886 by the owner of the Mankato Free Press, Lewis and Lisbeth Hunt.  Features of the home caught Crowell’s attention, such as the spiral staircase inside the turret, decorative inlaid wood floors, stamped metal ceiling tiles, stained-glass windows, leaded glass bay window and the beautiful curb appeal of this unique Victorian beauty. The artistry that can be found in the walls of the Moulin Rouge House is something that cannot be replicated.
