Quoting From “Country Home” magazine’s feature story on the Loghouse & Homestead Bed & Breakfast, we are here “For the Love of the Land.” This elegant country inn is cradled amidst 115 acres of fields, hills and maple woods, adjacent to nearly a mile of private lakeshore. Luxury, pampering and privacy are its hallmarks. Located near Vergas, MN in picturesque Otter Tail County, this B&B is surrounded by more than 1,000 lakes, curving roads and rolling hills, free of billboards and full of wildlife. It is a verdant land in summer, a riot of color in fall and pristine white–now in winter–a lovely playground in any season.
Living on the land she so loved was always a dream of Suzanne Tweten, owner and innkeeper. Her dream was fulfilled when she took the reins from her parents in 1998. The Inn is now in its 17th year of operation. Conserving the land and the environment is a large part of the Inn’s focus. Thousands of trees have been planted, as much of the land was pasture or cultivated. A wildllife refuge was created, attracting both the four-footed type and a myriad of birds. Loons nest in a secluded cove, heralding the arrival of spring with their haunting call. A pair of eagles, whose nest can be seen across the lake, cause anxious cries of alarm when they soar overhead looking for prey. A wetland dubbed the “Beaver Bog” and another called “Peepers Pond” have been preserved. Sixty acres of woods are enrolled in a Sustainable Forest Program and 20 acres of fields are covered by Reinvest in Minnesota (RIM)
The Loghouse & Homestead is a one-of-a-kind bed and breakfast, combining the beauty and peacefulness of the land with luxury amenities and personal attention. It is set apart enough to “be away” but still accessible to a wide range of area activities and events. www.loghousebb.com >
