The moment we drove up the driveway and saw the beautiful log home, we were in love! The Sunset Room was perfect- right down to the old wooden ski decor on the wall. The whirlpool tub was fantastic! And the breakfasts- yum, yum! Thank you, Lura, for your wonderful hospitality. We had such a great time!

We had a wonderful stay at the Baptism River B&B. It was a great place to relax by the fire after a big day of x-country skiing at the National Forest Lodge. The rooms are so tastefully decorated in a style that reflects the Northwoods surroundings. We would love to have the opportunity to revisit this B&B. We already recommended...

This place is wonderful. The Evergreen Suite is well worth the extra. You get an enormous luxury bathroom, a romantic potbelly fire place (complete with easy instructions for those who have never used a fireplace before), and they bring breakfast to your own private breakfast nook, while you're still in bed. The breakfasts were phenomenal. The pictures on the website...

I could not say enough good things about Baptism River Inn. From the moment that we drove up to the property, we were already in love. The room was so clean and cozy, and the breakfast in the morning was phenomenal. We felt that we could truly get away and escape into the woods! Lura was absolutely wonderful to chat...

Went here to spend a peaceful weekend with my wife. Loved the hospitality and facilities at Baptism River Inn. The room was very nice and the bed was so comfortable that I slept like a baby after a long time. Also, the private whirlpool and outdoor wood fired sauna were icing on the cake and made the stay memorable. Lura...

What a gem tucked away in the woods! We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Baptism River Inn, celebrating our 2 year wedding anniversary! The first night was nice & warm, so we enjoyed a bottle of wine out on the deck, watching the stars on the perfectly clear night. Breakfast was AMAZING both mornings! Our 1st morning, we snuck...

The atmosphere was picturesque, private, quaint, wooded, river views, fun outdoor sauna next to the river. Rooms were perfect w/private bath's. Very up north woodsy but all the modern conveniences. Tons of hiking and reading/napping...

Beautiful and sparkling clean. Cozy with a dash of ornate. Delicious breakfasts and good advice on hiking trails. This very dear couple has provided us a wonderful experience. Tettegouche State Park is magical.

My daughter and I spent two nights here in late July on a little trip up north to unwind. It was perfectly located for our exploring. The room was comfortable and clean and so, so quiet! Breakfast was delicious. The owners were very friendly. There is a cute little path down to the river, which we could hear from our...

My husband and I had an amazing time at the Baptism River Inn B&B!! We splurged and stayed in the Evergreen Suite (10 year anniversary-ya gotta)! We didn't regret a minute of it. It was so romantic. We had a fire each night in the in-room fireplace. We enjoyed the 2 person spa. I think the best part may have...

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
