Adrienne and Dicks homestead was the high point of our cycling trip from Bimidji to Brainerd along the Paul Bunyan State trail. We stayed in the Three Marigolds and One Other Flower cabin and the combination of the rustic surroundings, comfortable and spacious cabin, and the mellow music playing when we walked in told us how relaxing our stay was going to be. Relax on the back porch with a book in front of the Paul Bunyan sized fireplace and you will have a hard time leaving. Dick was a gracious host, showing us his fine collection of cars as well as the projects he was working on. Breakfast of beet and buckwheat pancakes with crushed hemp topping (to suit Dars' gluten free needs) was delicious and nutritious. The dining car was the perfect way to enjoy breakfast. Thank you for the most relaxing part of our entire journey. You have set the bar very high for our future B&B evaluations! Clint and Dar, Winnipeg, MB

My wife and I recently spent a wonderful weekend at Whitely Creek where we stayed in a cabin the exterior of which resembled a 1930's service station - complete with an old gas pump out front and several vintage road signs. The cabin sits nestled into the pines next to a bright red vintage caboose car. We found Adrienne and Dick to be gracious, friendly, and low key hosts. Adrienne serves organic, home made breakfast items in a renovated railroad dining car. The first morning she served baked oatmeal topped with fresh fruit and a delicious muffin on the side. I need to eat gluten free so she went out of her way to secure gluten free oats and a delicious gluten free muffin recipe. The next day she served an egg and ham perched atop a slice of gluten free bread with a fresh salad on the side. I could say much more - about the vintage cars, the canoes, the hundreds of artistic embellishments - but I hope this limited information serves to give you a sense of the place. Whitley Creek Homestead is just the place for a memorable, idyllic retreat in the north woods.

Delightful! My husband and I were up there a few weekends ago, and it was so relaxing! No kids, no TV in the cottage, just quiet and birds and forest and good, healthy food! The owners have taken great care to make every aspect of your stay restful and comfortable--truly a retreat away from the rat race! Decorated with charming country antiques that are functional and comfortable, not fussy. You aren't afraid to break anything here, it's all designed for your R&R. Enjoy!
