Step back in time and experience turn-of-the century elegance and the relaxed lifestyle of a bygone age in an historic mansion and carriage house in a quiet, tree-lined village neighborhood. Shaded by magnificent maples and willow trees, the Main House features stained glass and leaded, beveled glass windows along with ornate and intricate woodwork in oak, cherry and chestnut. The Main House has three guest accommodations and the Carriage House, done in the style of a country cottage, has a Loft Suite on the upper level and a guest room with private bath on the first floor.

Leo and Marcia provided a perfect venue for a Murder Mystery Dinner Theater. We gathered 13 individuals together for an unusual evening. Their home/bed and breakfast was perfect for the creative endeavor of slipping into a character for the evening to solve a murder. The food, catered by New Ulm Chef Pantry was outstanding. The combination of great hosts, fun people, and great food made for a very memorable evening. Valerie Holzhueter

We stayed for 2 days and our reason for going was just to relax. It was very relaxing and a beautiful bed and breakfast. The hosts are very easy to have a conversation with and very accommodating to your needs. They went above and beyond for us. I would recommend this bed and breakfast very highly.

When we arrived Marcia and Leo were very welcoming and gave us a quick tour. They have all the hotel amenities (fridge, microwave, coffee, etc.) and much more (homemade cookies, robes, bath minerals, etc.) The loft space is both comfortable and expansive. I couldn't imagine a better place to relax and warm up after a day out in the Minnesota winter. The morning breakfast and the architectural detail in the main house were both magnificent. Our first experience at a B&B was memorable and tranquil thanks to the wonderful hosts at the W.W. Smith Inn.
