Wonderful Experience in a Beautiful Place

4.8 on September 16, 2015

Marie and Doug have a beautiful home and are wonderful hosts. The breakfast is spectacular. We enjoyed the evening cocktail hour on their patio. Rushford, Minnesota is one of the most gorgeous places you could hope to visit.


A wonderful stay at the Meadows Inn Bed & Breakfast

5 on August 22, 2015

Our stay at Meadows B&B was the best!!! Marie and Doug are very gracious innkeepers, the room was beautiful and the patio was lovely - lots of little touches that made everything special. The breakfast was fabulous. Marie is quite a cook! There was such variety; all was delicious and of the highest quality. There is a lot to do and see in the area and the late afternoon happy hour with their homemade wine and snacks was a nice way to unwind from the day's activities. We highly recommend the Meadows Inn B&B! Marilyn and Bob Dodd

Hidden Gem B&B

We've stayed in many nice B&Bs but this ranks the highest! The food and hospitality was wonderful. The room was clean and quiet. The beautiful patio area sets this place apart. A lovely resting spot while enjoying morning coffee or after biking the nearby trails. We will stay there again!

Fantastic B&B in Southeastern Minnesota!

5 on July 30, 2014

This was our second time staying at the Meadows Inn Bed & Breakfast in Rushford, Minnesota. This place is everything you want a B&B to be. The facility is beautiful - set on a hill surrounded by trees (very secluded), the rooms are well appointed and each is offers something different, and the breakfasts are gourmet! We met the other people staying at the Inn the same time we were there and by the end of the weekend we were all good friends. The owners, Doug and Marie, make sure each guest is comfortable and that their needs are being met. I highly recommend this B&B.

Innkeeper Response
We love return guests! Thanks for coming for your second visit and we hope to see you for a third! Thanks for the wonderful comments-we are glad you had a good time while in Rushford.


"Outstanding" isn't a good enough word to describe our experience!

5 on July 30, 2014

We had the most amazing time at Meadows Inn Bed and Breakfast. The bed was extremely comfortable. The breakfast was the biggest, most fantastic breakfast we've ever eaten anywhere in our lives. The service was top notch. Doug and Mary are so accommodating and such kind generous people. We came as strangers and we left as friends. The landscaping was so beautiful, and every detail was given special attention to. Our expectations were more than exceeded. We can't thank them enough for making our stay something that was truly memorable.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much for the kind and gracious comments!!! We love our guests and always love to hear when you have had a good time here. Hope to see you again at our bed and breakfast. Marie and Doug
