Dean is an extremely thoughtful host. The rooms are pleasant, quiet, and very clean. The breakfasts are delicious too. We had a wonderful stay and look forward to our next visit.

Beautiful property with lots of history, wonderfully decorated. The Hamel's are excellent hosts easy to talk to, full of good information about local events and eaterys. Would certainly entertain going back again, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Villa Calma to others.
4,8 sur septembre 23, 2013
We just visited for a second time, and highly recommend Villa Calma after 5 nights there since August. Dean is a delightful host who manages to combine being extremely attentive with being very laid back. And the food is delicious! The home is comfortable, extremely clean, and offers beautiful views of the lake. (And if you happen to be academics, like us, the enclosed porch is an excellent place for writing in the warmer months.) We were in Bemidji for business and found this to be a great place to be comfortable, relaxed, and if needed get work done. Bemidji has numerous charms (state parks; numerous good restaurants; walking, biking, and skiing trails; shops), and Dean will help you find the gems. We will be back, often we hope.

The breakfast was excellent with gracious hospitality and great recommendations for our evening dining in Bemidji.
4,4 sur août 29, 2013
The Villa Calma B&B easily met or exceeded our expectations in every category. I found the host to be friendly, hospitable, and a wealth of information. The rooms were clean & tidy, and the food that was served for breakfast was well prepared, aesthetically pleasing, and quite tasty. In addition, its location close to downtown and the BSU campus made getting around on foot quite easy. I would highly recommend this bed & breakfast to anyone traveling to the Bemidji area and would definitely stay there again if the opportunity ever arose.

We loved our weekend at Villa Calma so much that we've already reserved another weekend stay!

Recently my wife and I were biking the Mississippi River Trail from the headwaters at Lake Itasca. The logical first stop is Bemidji and a great place to stay turned out to be Villa Calma. Our bikes were secured in the garage, our room was very comfortable and clean, breakfast was delicious and efficient--we were back on the trail a the time we hoped to be. If you are biking, Villa Calma is just block from both the Mississippi River Trail and the Paul Bunyon Trail and Bemidji is a beautiful town.
4,6 sur août 05, 2013
I want to thank Dean for being such a welcoming and expert innkeeper. The house is beautiful as is the location. Dean made us feel right at home with a glass of wine and some interesting conversation despite our late arrival. His delicious breakfast and talk were also very appreciated. If I am ever back in Bemidji, I will definitely stay at Villa Calma again!

Great breakfasts, excellent location - short walk to Nicollett Island and downtown. Great old house built in 1890's. Knowledgeable proprietor - offered great suggestions about what to do and see in Minneapolis. Very comfortable. 10 out of 10.

We were in Bemidji visiting our daughter at a summer camp and had a very lovely stay at Villa Calma. The rooms were lovely. They were very comfortable, clean and attractive. The food was very good and we had a very nice time meeting the other guests. I would highly recommend this bed and breakfast and look forward to going there again
3,0 sur juillet 07, 2013
Everything was nice except that we had to share a bathroom and there was no means of getting fresh towels because they were in our room (couldn't leave them on the bathroom floor) and they didn't come into the room to make the bed or take the towels. Also, I told the proprietor that I was vegetarian and both breakfasts were served with meat. The second day, the meat was part of the quiche, so I couldn't pick it out.
4,8 sur juillet 06, 2013
We truly enjoyed Villa Calma. It is across the lake, on a very very quiet street, heard the birds singing all the time. The room and bathroom were very clean and with A/C. The whole house is set up for guests, with home theatre, plenty of seating in the living room, summer porch and deck. A good touch was "snack time" 5-7 pm with wine and cheese. water bottles are available at all times. The best part are the owners, Dean & Theresa, so hospitable and easy to talk with. They treated us as so well. Breakfast was plenty and, best of all, healthy and very elegant. We would stay there again.
4,4 sur juin 29, 2013
This is a very comfortable venue within a short walk of the state university and the downtown area. A walking/bicycle path that goes around the lake passes in front. Great mattresses. Good water pressure. Good coffee. Clean. Very friendly host who made us feel like we were family.

This was a wonderful visit. Our hosts Dean and Theresa were fun, friendly and fantastic.

Booked here when all area hotels were filled due to conventions. Were welcomed and made to feel at home immediately. Exceptional service, amenities, and food. And met some truly wonderful people that were also staying here. Not at all what I expected as I had no previous experience with B & B's. Would definitely stay here again.
5 sur mai 14, 2013
I was very pleased with my experience! Could have spent less but the amenities far outweighed any additional cost versus the impersonal chains. Wine at check-in, personalized breakfast vs. bagels, and a view beyond compare. Close proximity to everything. What would I change? NOTHING!
5 sur mai 09, 2013
Best vacation ever! Dean and Theresa have put together a wonderful experience for their guests. So many B&Bs we looked at were all faded flower prints, doilies or stereotypical north woods themed to the point of nausea. Villa Calma is very tastefully outfitted and genuinely feels classy without being over the top. Their breakfast was delicious and very creative dishes were served. It was obvious that Dean and Theresa really enjoyed being hosts as the entertaining breakfast conversation went on and Dean was quick to show us around the town. Go to Villa Calma! It was fantastic and we will be back! M & C

Dean and Theresa were the most gracious hosts I had the privelage of becoming acquainted with, my girlfriend and I had no idea what to expect, from the welcome at the door, to the picture of everyone staying in the house, it was a memory we will cherish for a long time, it was like no one was a stranger , the house was beautiful, the room was welcoming and so comfortable, I will b back, thank you Deanand Theresa , Larry and Kathleen

Kim and Harold were so welcoming and helpful, and their b and b is so calm and luxurious, we had a wonderful stay. We look forward to visiting again when the sun is shining and we can enjoy the balcony and beautiful back porch--we would recommend this b and b in any weather!

My wife and I have stayed at B & B's in the past, but this one was by far our favorite. We will be back!
4,8 sur octobre 16, 2012
This was our first stay at a B&B and we don't ever want to stay in a hotel again if they are all like this one!! There were never any awkward moments. The other guests were so polite. The owners were very great at taking care of everything we needed. They even went the extra mile to make sure I had something to eat. I was nine weeks pregnant and they took into consideration my extreme morningsickness. Breakfast was awesome. The location couldn't have been more perfect, right on the lake in a beautiful neighborhood. There had been bad storms the week before and you really couldn't tell.
4,6 sur octobre 15, 2012
Highly recommend Villa Calma. Harold was a great host, friendly and accommodating without overdoing it. Left before breakfast was served but he sent a good continental bfast with me. Price was competitive with national hotel chains in the area.

They think of everything you might need or want and the food was wonderful.

My husband and I stayed at the Villa Calma after riding the Paul Bunyon Trail. (We had completed 9 days of cycling various trails in Minnesota.) Harold was a wonderful host selecting a wonderful moscato wine on our arrival along with an excellent salmon spread. He helped us with finding a restaurant within walking distance. Our room was beautiful and the bed very comfortable. Breakfast was very tasty with a warm peach and berry dish I hadn't had before. We wish Harold and Kim all the best for their B&B.

We spent two nights at Villa Calma when we dropped our son off at BSU. We will stay at Villa Calma every time we visit Bemidji. The rooms were remarkable, very clean and homey. The food was amazing! Harold was a fabulous host and chef. We rented two rooms and were pleased with both!!!! Thank you Villa Calma, we can't wait to stay again!!!!
4,6 sur août 26, 2012
We enjoyed our three night stay at the Villa Calma Bed & Breakfast very much. Kim & Harold's home is very charming and attractively decorated. Harold is a marvelous cook and we truly enjoyed the mouth watering breakfasts he served each morning of our stay. Harold was very helpful with the area attractions and restaurants. We would recommend to everyone wanting a peaceful and relaxing stay to check out the Villa Calma Bed & Breakfast. Dan & Sharon Tennessee

My husband and I had never stayed in a B & B before our stay at Villa Calma. It was absolutely perfect! The food was delicious, the place was spotlessly clean, the innkeeper was knowledgeable and friendly, the wine/snack time was a great treat, and the room was charming! We will stay again, the next time we visit Bemidji!
5 sur juillet 29, 2012
We were blown away by this bed and breakfast. When we first walked into Kim and Harold's home, our first impression was that it smelled really good. And once we saw our bedroom, we realized that it was kept immaculately clean. Harold was a wealth of information, and he provided us with a lot of good tips on where to bike in the area (his tips came from his experience, which was vast). He also took care of making our reservation for supper which made things very easy for us. Breakfast in the morning was lovely and delicious. We will definitely want to stay at Villa Calma when we return to Bemidji. ...Patrick and Mary

This was the second time - and hopefully not the last time - that my daughter and I have stayed at Villa Calma. The reason that we came back is that is is a truly extraordinary B&B - the attention to detail in the rooms as well as in the unique and yummy breakfasts is superb. Kim and Harold are delightful hosts, and have a wealth of information about the area. The location is great - right across from the lake, but close to everything. Can't wait to come back!
5 sur juillet 24, 2012
Wow!! What a perfect stay! I live in Europe and have stayed at B&B's in many countries. This was by far the best. The rooms were lovely and very clean......not to mention comfortable. The food was outstanding. Everyday we were treated to something special. The icing on the cake though was Harold and Kim. Lovely, lovely people. Very helpful and very kind. You really shouldn't stay anywhere else. I would come to Bemidji just to stay with them. We came as guests and left as friends. Simply wonderful!

Harold is a great chef! The food was delicious, the room was clean and comfortable. When I find myself in Bemidji again, I will hope there is a room available!
5 sur juillet 20, 2012
My husband and I stayed in this b and b for three nights during the summer. There were multiple appealing public space options when one left one's room... an air-conditioned sitting and dining area -- it was appreciated during the hot weather, a screened/windowed porch, a deck, and a yard complete with a hammock and trees on the quiet lake-view lane. With only a few rooms, these ample public spaces were plenty quiet for my husband to do a little early morning internet writing work while I was still sleeping. If you have special food preferences, let your wishes be known so the owners will know how to please you. That is their goal --and they did a wonderful job with us!

I stayed at the Villa Calma following a 9.5 hour drive to drop off my kids at the Concordia Language Camps. Kim and Marty were very welcoming and warm. The fish dip that was offered at check in came from the local supermarket and having a severe allergy to crustaceans, I asked about the ingredients. As it could not be cofirmed that it did not contain crustaceans, Harry was very accomodating to offer an alternative dip. I asked Kim and Harry where to get a nice walleye for dinner and they were very kind to make reservations for me at the Cattails restaurant. There was sudden severe weather about ten minutes into my drive with sirens, 80mph winds and trees falling everywhere. I tried to get back to the Inn and made it back but was stuck in my car for most of the storm as I could not open the door. The villa lost power as well as a much beloved old oak tree in the front yard. A 2" mini flashlight was offered for light and I was surprised that there were no hurricane lamps/candles or other battery opered lighting for such occasions. Next morning, I came down the stairs to find an envelope with my name on it on the banister. I asked about it and Harry said it was money back for the breakfast I wouldn't be having that morning and a suggestion I go to Perkins. The downtown bakery was open and being a B&B, there could have been a 5 minute ride downtown to pick up local bakery items for breakfast. I guess my being the only guest that morning made it easier to offer cash back. I couldn't take the money and donated it to the lost tree fund. Coffee was brought up personally to my room by Harry before I left which was a nice touch. All in all, a wonderful home and a nice visit despite the awful weather!

Highly recommend this B & B - lots of extras included - complimentary wine and snacks for happy hour, complimentary soft drinks, tea, popcorn etc. Beautiful surroundings, garden - the house is immaculate.

Being a Bed & Breakfast owner myself I can honestly say that everything Kim and Harold did was perfect. We were well greeted and information was well laid out for our evening. The room was beautiful and well appointed. The breakfast...Harold...thank you for sharing this reciepe, it will be served with the story...FANTASTIC and DELICIOUS! Everything was perfect and wouldn't change a thing. Carole & Grant from Calder House B&B in Steinbach, MB Canada

This was the second time my wife and I have stayed at the Villa Calma, and we found very, very nice in all details. The room was upstairs, large and clean and had a balcony overlooking the large front yard and giving you a view of the lake. The breakfasts were excellent and very filling, so much so that we skipped lunch. The common areas downstairs were very large and well-stocked with games and books. The hosts were friendly and helpful and knew quite a bit about the local area.
4,4 sur juillet 02, 2012
They sure know how to make you feel at home at the Villa Calma. My room was clean, the furnishings were very elegant for the price, and their cooking is great. I especially enjoyed the wild rice-mushroom souffle and cold mango soup. Kim and Harold know the town quite well, and had a comprehensive list of the activities and attractions that Bemidji has to offer. The wine and snack hour was a nice touch, too. I never want to stay in a hotel again!
3,8 sur juin 26, 2012
The common area was welcoming, very relaxing and peaceful. We felt like we were at home and really enjoyed the wine and cheese that was offered in the evening. The room was a little small but the other areas were so large and spacious that it didn't matter. The next time we would try to get the suite. I would definitely recommend this bed and breakfast.

Two of us were biking the Paul Bunyan and Heartland trails, and treated ourselves to a B&B stay in Bemidji. We had accumulated a number of questions about the history, geography and agriculture of North Central Minnesota. Our host graciously spent time answering them. Since he grew up and worked in the Bemidji area, he was very knowledgeable. We also recommend chilling on the front deck - very pleasant and a great view looking east. Bottom line - we would stay again in a heartbeat.

Everything was very well done from the happy hour to the excellent breakfast. Great biking trail right outside the front door around Lake Bemidju.

We did love our one-night stay at Villa Calma. I was in Bemidji for a conference, and the b&b--right across the street from Lake Bemidji--was within a few blocks of downtown. Easy, pleasant walk right along the lake. The b&b itself was friendly, welcoming, scrupulously clean, comfortable, and beautiful. The breakfast was yummy. They had a nice cocktail hour with wine and smoked salmon. There's a great front deck and a lovely enclosed porch for chilly days. The room was comfortable and the bathroom well equipped with shampoo, soap, conditioner, etc. Fluffy robes and slippers available, too. They thought of everything.

We have stayed at several different B&B's throughout North America and Europe, but have never been at a place that has as much attention to detail as Villa Calma.

We were looking for a place to stay for our sons gradustion from BSU and rooms were scarce. We scored the last available room at Villa Calma. What a joy. For the same price as a sterile hotel atmosphere we enjoyed the beautiful homey comfort of this B&B. Breakfasts to rave about. Friendly and welcoming hosts who were understanding when our arrival was delayed. Wish we had stayed here on our other visits to Bemidji. Lovely spot on Lake Bemidji. We will remember our stay fondly.

What a lovely B&B and wonderful inn keepers! The saying goes that "the difference is in the details" and Harold and Kim obviously know that! From a gorgeous room with chocolates and squishy bathrobes to snacks and wine in the evening and scrumptious breakfast in the morning, not a single thing was overlooked. They even purchased vegetarian sausage for me for breakfast - what a delightful surprise! We had a great time and will certainly be back!

There was so much to do. There are games and movies that you can watch. You feel like you are at home. The breakfasts were AMAZING!! I wanted to finish my plate, but was full after the very generous servings. I recommend this B&B to everyone. I will be going back in 2 months.

Wow, this place is phenomenal! Already planning my trip back. We had the biggest room, Florence. The moment we walked into our room, it was calm and relaxing. We had our own porch. BEAUTIFUL view. I can't rave enough about this place. Breakfast was amazing! If you're a big eater, don't worry about not getting your fill. The hosts were friendly, ut not overbearing in the least. You could stay in your room the whole visit or you could go downstairs and visit with them. So many little touches that made you feel at home. Locked the main door when they left, water and pop in fridge, wine and snack at 5p, etc. --Megan

Would recommend to anyone looking for a break from the every-day.

We will definitely recommend to our friends and won't hesitate to stay again if we end up back in Bemidji.

We stayed at Villa Calma for a weekend in January 2011 with 2 other couples who are friends of ours - we had an amazing, relaxing time. The innkeepers (Harold and Kim) are incredibly helpful and friendly - they even cleaned the snow off of our cars! The house is beautiful, clean, has a great view of the lake, and is very relaxing. We felt absolutely pampered--they prepared elaborate breakfasts each morning, had a great selection of games, books and movies, were happy to give restaurant & sightseeing suggestions, and their special hot buttered rum will warm you right up after a snowy day. There is always plenty to do in the town of Bemidji no matter the season, and each room has very comfortable beds and is beautifully decorated in a charming Italian theme. You can tell how much thought & hard work Harold and Kim put into each detail of their B&Bt to make their guests feel at home!
