Overrated and overpriced, with unexpected additional fees. Dirty, dusty, bad smell from outside wood burner, many posted rules and restrictions. Bed: towels not fresh; linens not luxury, not ironed, not on 3rd bed/lumpy futon (do it yourself!) Breakfast: not ready at assigned time, no choice, mystery juice, mystery bowl (fruit? nut?), and a special dish, 'rhino hide', looked more like 'rhino sick.'

This is a very beautiful Bed and Breakfast, very clean and cozy rooms, delicious breakfasts and the owners are very welcoming. We enjoyed the farm and all the animals. The location is just a few minutes away from town and Lake Superior. My daughter and I would like to suggest a name for your un-named donkey...Chocolate Frappe. Thanks again for an awesome weekend getaway! Nancy and Tiffany

The Innkeepers were willing to work with us to come another date due to the weather. That was very helpful. The B&B was very nice, we are glad we went.

We had a wonderful weekend at Second Wind. Mark and Kelly were amazingly hospitable. Breakfast was beyond expectations. We stayed in one of their lofts and the space was very clean and cozy. It was very serene and peaceful. My husband and I were so happy to be there guests. Stay here and you will not be disappointed!

My husband and I stayed in the Bear Den for our first anniversary. This was our first time at a B&B. It was just what we needed. We loved the farm animals (especially the donkeys) and, most of all, we loved that Mark and Kelly made us feel at home. And her breakfasts are to die for!!! We will def be coming back. Thank you Mark and Kelly!!!!!!!!

Our stay at Second Wind was so relaxing! Our room was both charming and luxurious. Breakfast was exceptionally delicious, and we certainly enjoyed the company of our Innkeepers, Mark and Kelly. It is such a peaceful place, and yet just a few miles outside of Ashland! We can't wait to go back!

We have enjoyed staying at Second Wind during two marathon weekends over the past two years and Mark and Kelly are GREAT at what they do. Caring, conversational, and great cooks, they make you feel like family. The inn is quite new and rustically beautiful! The log details, northwoods themes and very cozy chairs and sofas throughout are a great comfort to our husbands who would rather not stay in a lace-covered Victorian, and the deep soaking whirpool tubs, nice teas and gift selections are much appreciated by us! We are excited to return again soon. Maybe in teh winter for a horse-drawn sled ride...
