We stayed Wednesday evening and got the Victorian Room for $79.00. What a deal. This is a really pretty, clean, and ornate house. During the week the breakfast is Continental and slim at that -- but what do you expect? There is no staff around week day mornings and only briefly weekday nights.

The Pillar Inn was wonderful! Rooms are very clean and well cared for. I am so glad I chose to stay here instead of a stuffy generic hotel/motel. There was a Catholic Church right across the street. The town is very quaint!

If you appreciate old home architecture don't miss this early 1900's home. Original trim and fixtures with restful wrap around porch. Comfy beds and nice linens to fit the theme of each room - we stayed in art deco style room which had a huge bath with 50's period tile. Room a bit over full, would have preferred less furniture,...

Everything was fantastic. Comfortable room, bed, etc. Steve was a great host. Made a fabulous breakfast. The antique furniture in this place is amazing. We cannot imagine anyone staying here and being disappointed. If you are going to Cold Springs, MN you have got to stay at the Pillar.

My wife and I took a brief trip to MN & ND, and stayed here the last night before heading back home via a flight from MSP...and this was the perfect choice for that last night in every way. First of all, it is a very convenient drive from the M-SP area, and especially to the airport. We obviously don't... More

This was our first stay at a B&B for my wife and I. We weren't disappointed and are now hooked on the B&B experience. We loved the house and the room and were lucky enough to have the place to ourselves. 5 stars from us.

My fiance and I stayed here for one night, as we were on a road trip from IL to WA. Tiny little town. The house is GORGEOUS, and the interior is jaw-dropping. The porch and the lawn/gardens were super cute. Our bed was incredibly comfortable (we stayed in the Casablanca room) and the bathroom was big and awesome. Complaint 1:... More

It is a historic home built in the early 1900's. Stepping inside the front door is stepping back in time. While we enjoyed our stay it is a little bit of a strange set up for a bed and breakfast being that the owners do not live on site, if fact the owners were never there. We had to "schedule"... More

“The rooms are balmy in the winter. If you like it warm, you will love it here. There's a church next door, so play a CD or watch a DVD in the provider if you want to squelch the sound of ringing.”
