COVID-19 Announcement from Rachel - must close from 3/27-4/10 - click for more

Due to the recent mandate from Minnesota Governor Walz, we will need to close our Inn from March 27-April 10th.  Our Spring Special is still in effect – purchase 2 nights with an online Gift Certificate and we will give you the 3rd night for free.
We have a new new cancellation policy that is more flexible for the time being.  All guests who stay with us between April 10th and April 30th, 2020 can cancel without a penalty fee by giving us a 48 hour notice.  If you give a 24 hour notice we will convert any monies taken to a gift certificate for future use.
Safety is our first priority.  We aim to protect our employees and guests, so we ask if you have an existing reservation and you are feeling sick or have symptoms of COVID19, please reschedule or cancel.  We continue to have high standards of service and health protocols.  We have increased cleaning and sanitizing protocols, etc.
Breakfast: Let us pamper you by delivering you a delicious breakfast to your luxurious suites or rooms, to adhere to social distancing.  We believe this will still allow you to have an authentic experience at our Inn.
 
A small Inn in a small town, with a handful of rooms, may be just the thing to raise one’s spirits!  We hope to see you soon!
 
– Rachelle, Innkeeper/Owner
