    This is a nice bed and breakfast in a fun town. The room was nice, breakfast was delicious. The town of Excelsior is also a fun spot- it's a short walk to coffee, the lake, hipster restaurants and various shops.

    We had our family reunion at the Bird House Inn. Six couples stayed there with more than enough room. With a handicapped husband, the first floor bedroom was perfect with an accessible shower. Location was also perfect to shops, restaurants, and the lake.

    Thanks for mentioning the accessible shower in the newly remodeled Cardinal room bathroom. We now have that unit ready for wheelchair access and we're pretty happy with it. Glad you were, too! Hope to have you all back again some time!

    It is three short blocks to the lake then about another three over to Bay View - or you can take the bike path for a short cut that would take about 5 minutes on foot.
