My wife and I stayed in the Evergreen Suite early in July 2013. My wife was skeptical about spending our honeymoon on the north shore, but we both ended up blown away by the beautiful setting of the inn, solid quality of the room and food, and warm helpfulness of the hosts. The spacious suite was perfect for us, not...

This was my third time staying at the Baptism River B & B which hopefully speaks volumes about how much I love it. I love the sauna and the opportunity to once again take a chilly refreshing dip in the river after getting steamed up. Thank you Andy and Lura again for a wonderful experience and of course for the...

Such a great place for a relaxing getaway! Our room was cozy and clean and we had a cute deck that overlooked the river. We also loved the trails that meandered through the woods and to the river from the backyard. The only downfall for us was that there was no common kitchen to cook lunch or dinner in, so...

Amazing property, amazing room (the Evergreen Suite) and super friendly hosts made our 2 night stay, perfect. The Suite was 750 Sq Ft, gorgeous views of the river, the bed was extremely comfy, great fireplace in our Suite and yummy breakfast served to us every morning. We loved the quaint Finnish Sauna that we used our first night and sat...

Our 12th planned revisit, across all seasons; seventh year of returns! Excellent lodging, excellent breakfast, convivial conversation. Excellent ambience for fireside reading Dark and quiet nights, great setting in the woods, on the river Close enough to arguably the very best and certainly most snow-reliable, XC ski area in Minnesota at Flathorn-Gegoka in Isabella National Forest * Maybe give the...

We spent two nights at the Band B and it was lovely. They were very helpful with recommendations of places to eat andood ski trails. The rooms were nice with balconies and ample room. The breakfast was nicely presented and good. Coffe, tea, hot chocolate and cookies were always available and there was a nice place to sit and relax....

We regret we had but 7 hours to enjoy this B&B as we planned to head out on a dog-sledding adventure early the next day and checked in after midnight. The owners went above and beyond stocking the rook with beverages, snacks, a little breakfast and treats. The room was a huge suite, bigger than most I have seen! I...

We figured out that this was our 5th visit to the Baptism River Inn Bed and Breakfast. We always return here because of the beautiful Inn, cleanliness, wonderful innkeepers, and of course, delicious food. It is so peaceful and relaxing here and we would recommend it to anyone.

My brand new husband and I stayed at this incredible B&B for our mini honeymoon in June 2013. It was so relaxing - we walked down by the river and through the woods and were able to travel to a few different scenic destinations in the short time that we were there. It was always wonderful to be able to...

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
