The breakfasts were absolutely amazing. Great company and felt at home. Husband tried out the Sauna and love it. Booking was a breeze and confirmation/check-instructions were spot-on. Easy access to the Superior Hiking Trail, which is absolutely amazing.

Beautiful property tucked away in the woods. Classy north woods decor. We had the Northern Lights room. A+ food. They have the property for sale. So my suggestions for the future owner should they read this: 1. Make a bonfire pit somewhere on the property. People would love it. 2. Develop trails through the 30+ acres for walks in the...

My husband and I cannot rave about this gorgeous inn enough! We reserved their Evergreen suite and enjoyed every minute we had there. Exploring the beautiful Baptism River just a short walk down a path, having a great cup of coffee on the balcony overlooking the woods, falling asleep to the sounds of the water and the wilderness, soaking in...

My husband and I stayed here over the 4th of July weekend. It was by far the best we've slept in a long time. The beds are very comfortable and the setting so tranquil. We loved listening to the birds singing and the breeze blowing through the windows. The breakfasts were wonderful and Lura and Andy were fantastic hosts! We...

Great place to stay, very quiet and relaxing. Rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable. Breakfasts were great, as well as friendly owners. Sauna onsite looked inviting, but did not get a chance to use. Walking along the Baptism river is spectacular.

We were two nights at the Inn and it is in a beautiful location and such a cozy feeling!! Such a gorgeous log house is spectacular! Lura made the most delicious breakfasts! We had Danish friends with us and it worked great, River and Sunset rooms have balconies which were also nice. We will be back!

We stayed in the Evergreen Suite, which was a very large room containing a full private bath with 2 person tub, fireplace, and kitchenette. The sauna was an awesome amenity as well which we used it several times during our stay. My only negative criticism is that breakfast wasn't served until 9am. This was a little late for us. The...

We had a wonderful three night stay at this peaceful B&B that was set back in the woods with easy access to all North Shore activities. Our hosts were friendly and accommodating and we definitely plan to visit again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An extraordinary B&B. We built the Baptism River Inn so you could be as social or private as you choose. Our cozy log lodge is centrally located on Minnesota's Lake Superior North Shore bordering Tettegouche State Park. Enjoy our secluded tranquil riverside setting. Expect an unpretentious atmosphere and friendly hospitality. Each guest room radiates its own relaxing casual comfort and warm rich detailed character. Luxuriously appointed private baths feature 2 person whirlpool tubs. Compare us to any quality North Shore accommodations. You’ll find our privacy, quiet, comfort, character, amenities and value will outshine most comparable area hotels, motels and resorts. Snuggle up to a crackling fire in our stone fireplace and unwind in our Finnish sauna. ... more   less
