We had originally reserved one of the cheaper rooms for a Fri night stay, and were called by the Inn to say there was an issue with that room, and could they offer us another room at the same price? We got the Queen Anne room for 149/night!!! The owner was very nice, showing us all the features of the room, how to make sure we had hot water for showers (since the boiler is in the basement and we are on the 2nd floor). Was a wonderful room to come back to after dinner and a play. The wood burning fire place was great ambiance for a cold winter's night in MN. Breakfast was served at 9am the next morning by candle light in the old style kitchen. We ate off of metal plates. The food was wonderful, plentiful, and the owner was great company after breakfast. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who will be in the area!

Awesome 18th century decor. Very nice bathroom facilities. Extremely friendly staff. Excellent breakfast. There are no signs telling you that you are there so it was a little confusing once we arrived. I will go back. Maybe next time try the room with the fireplace.

The cabin is very authentic and private. Terrific breakfast! We've been there many times.

We loved Merriam's place, very romantic, beautiful and quaint. We had our very own fireplace in our room. LOVE! The hearth in the great room is absolutely amazing. And all the antiques are true to the setting. Breakfast is delightfully delicious. I would return tonight if I could!
