Wonderful place to escape in the north woods

4.6 on October 28, 2014

We had a wonderful time during our stay at the Baptism River Inn. The hostess was more than gracious and went above and beyond to exceed our expectations. We loved exploring the Baptism River by way of the path near the sauna. Speaking of the sauna - it was incredible! We went in after dark and loved stepping outside for some cool air and gazing at the stars. The room was incredibly comfortable and the whirlpool bath was divine. My only tip would be to add a bit more to breakfast - we were still a tad hungry afterwards both mornings. But that is not to say it was not delicious! Thank you again for your wonderful B&B!

Beautiful Place

A very clean and beautiful bed and breakfast located off the the beaten path. Lura is very friendly and welcoming. The room we stayed in (sunset room) was tastefully decorated and had a fantastic whirlpool tub. We enjoyed our stay immensely and would highly recommend it!

Amazing Weekend

5 on June 18, 2014

We stayed here for our 10 year anniversary. We had an amazing time. It was so quiet and peaceful. We stayed in the River room. Loved listening to the sounds of the Baptism River while sitting on our private balcony with a glass of champagne. This is our new favorite place! P.S. the food is also amazing!!

Best Wedding Gift Ever!

My parents got us three beautiful nights here for our honeymoon! The location is gorgeous, the food was delicious, and the room was absolutely outstanding! The Evergreen Suite opens up to beautiful pine covered hills and the sound of the river. There's not enough good words to say about this place!

Wonderful getaway.

This was our 5th trip to the Baptism River Inn B & B, and we had an amazing time, as always. We love staying in the Evergreen Suite, and the lodge is beautiful. The innkeepers, Andy and Lura, are so welcoming, and the food is delicious. Lura even accommodated for my special diet. Thank you, Andy and Lura! We will, of course, be back.

Wonderful stay

This visit was a surprise and everything about it exceeded my expectations. This is the first time visiting, but it won't be the last!

Excellent winter get-away near the North Shore

This was our second stay at the Baptism River Inn and we opted for the Evergreen suite. The suite was very spacious with a very comfortable bed and best of all a wood-burning stove. It was a very cold weekend so we spent most of our time indoors and absolutely loved it. The outdoor landscape was amazing being there in late December with the snow cover on the ground and trees. Very accommodating host and excellent breakfast. We are already planning a return trip for the spring thaw.

Awesome B&B in the woods with excellent scenery!

5 on October 14, 2013

First time at a B&B and it was wonderful. Awesome location in the woods right next to the Baptism river with excellent scenery of the woods, river and cliffs. The River room was extremely cozy and it had the most comfortable bed we've ever slept on. The breakfast was excellent, and owner was very hospitable. The room rate was better than most hotels and you will not be disappointed. We are already planning our next trip there!

Enjoy our bright and airy western facing guest room. Step out to the balcony through the double French doors.
