We celebrated our anniversary by returning to the Baptism River BandB, the place we honeymooned 9 years earlier. It's a beautiful place to stay; the amenities are top notch, the breakfasts are prepared with gourmet ability, the location is perfect for sightseeing north and south, and Andy and Lura are friendly hospitable hosts. They epitomize 'Minnesota Nice'. The north shore...

While not directly on Lake Superior this peaceful inn is just a short drive up a scenic byway. The comfortable mix of styles make for charming and unpretentious common areas and rooms. Lura was very gracious to accommodate my finicky taste with delicious, ample and nicely presented breakfast menus. Too bad we were only able to stay two nights. Book...

Great place for some peace and quiet and relaxation. We will be back for sure! I would definitely get the suite next time though. You will have more amenities with just a few more dollars. The daily breakfasts that we ordered were fabulous! !!

We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary here and we were not disappointed. The Evergreen Suite was so nice along with the breakfasts that are delivered to your room. There is so many things to do along the North Shore. If you want a great getaway you need to check this place out.

You have views to three sides of the property and the deck looks out over the front driveway leading to the property. The bed was so comfortable and all the amenities that come...

I was looking for a cabin on Lake Superior to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. I didn't find one, so we took a chance on the Baptism River Inn. It was lovely. Very restful. The gathering area is very welcoming also. The breakfast both days was delicious. And Lura was a great hostess. We stayed in the Northern Lights room....

My husband and I stayed at the Baptism River Inn B&B for two nights at the end of our mini-moon. It was wonderfully luxurious after three nights camping at Tettegouche! We stayed in the River Room -- lots of lovely windows, a large jet tub, a balcony, and beautifully furnished. Love the Siverston prints everywhere! We never met Andy, but...

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
