One of Minnesot’a favorite historic inns. The Homestead, original to the property, was built in 1902 by Swedish immigrants who had been on the land since 1886. Suzanne, owner of the B&B, had been coming to the property every summer of her life, as did her mother before her. Though it still looks much as it did when built, it went through a massive renovation–it had neither plumbing nor central heating.
The 1889 Loghouse was built by Suzanne’s Danish great-great grandparents. It ws moved intact 80 miles from northern Minnesota with Suzanne’s 85-year-old grandfather sitting atop the roof holding a wooden fork to raise low-hanging electrical wires. It now rests serenely on a knoll overlooking Spirit Lake. The logs still wear their original whitewsh. Newspapers found in the walls were frammed and hang throughout the house.
Inn amenities include fireplaces, whirlpool tubs, private balconies, private breakfast and more. Three miles of hiking trails wind through the hills, fields and maple woods–all adjacent to nearly a mile of private wooded shore. Canoes, rowboats and snowshoes are gratis. Golfing, antiquing and shops nearby. COME & ENJOY!
