This is our second visit - love the peace and quiet. So many places to hike in the area. Lura and Andy provide a wonderful atmosphere - lots of public space in which to relax - love their self check-in procedure. Enjoyed the sound of the Baptism River in the background and the lovely bird sounds. Did not miss TV...

It's always nice to have returning guests! Glad you enjoyed your time here and got to see and hear the river at it's spring peak! Thanks for taking the time to write a nice review ~ Lura and Andy

We stayed at Baptism River B & B in the Sunset room for three nights. What a beautiful, clean and peaceful get away! Lura puts coffee out in the morning, and serves a delicious breakfast promptly at 9. She allows you privacy, but is very personable when engaged in conversation. The price is very reasonable for the stay!

What an amazing wonderful getaway in the woods! This was our first and definitely not our last stay. We stayed in the Evergreen Suite. As soon as you open the door you know you know you are going to enjoy this. You walk into the breakfast nook which has a table full of coffee drinks, coffee maker, teas, chai tea,...

My husband and I wanted to get one last snow shoe opportunity and landed on this B & B at the recommendation of friends that had just been up there. We were greeted with softly falling snow (I am sure Lura and Andy planned that one) and a warm, beautifully decorated log home and clear instructions on how to find...

We came here on our honeymoon a few years ago and have been back a few times since. Each time we have stayed has not been a disappointment! The Evergreen Suite provides a wonderful little retreat in a beautiful setting. The food has always been delicious too! Lura even has listened to our request to serve for our favorite breakfast!...

Solid, well-designed structure, with very comfortable and attractively-decorated accommodations throughout, including the front entry, the sitting room downstairs, and the bedroom upstairs (my wife and I were in the River Room). We stayed four nights, so were treated to four of Lura's breakfast presentations - a great variety, each one delicious. Extra benefit was having hot tea and homemade cookies...

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...

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
