Minnesota B&Bs have gone bird friendly and are now promoting bird activities. Innkeeper Suzanne Tweten, Loghouse and Homestead on Spirit Lake, has set up bird feeding stations and bird houses throughout her B&B’s extensive property of 115 acres and she actively promotes Detroit Lakes’ Festival of Birds held in May.
The property offers an unique opportunity to enjoy a guided walk after breakfast to observe Bluebirds, Bobolinks, Scarlet Tanagers, Warbles, Indigo Buntings, Golden Winged Warblers, and 7 different species of Wood Peckers including the majestic Pileated, among so many others. Enjoy views of Spirit Lake from our shoreline where Loons, Pelicans, Great -Blue Herons and waterfowl can be viewed. We are also located on the migration flyway and are able to see the Trumpeter Swans, Snow Geese, and dozens of arctic birds heading north for the summer.
Their special Birding Package includes one night stay with all of our usual amenities and a birding trip from 9a.m. to 11a.m. April through October. Package rates include room charge and $80 per couple for the guided tour, binocular and bird book rental, plus a 20% discount at 3 local upscale shops: The forest Edge Gallery, The Quiet Cricket and Coco’s. Discounts are available for groups of 3 or more. Visit them on the Web at: www.loghousebb.com. >
