The Contented Cottage Bed and Breakfast is located in southeast Minnesota just east on highway 19 and just 7 miles east of state highway 35. Imagine relaxing in the ambience of a cozy cottage nestled in wooded bluffs and draped with wild flowers at its foundation . The Contented Cottage Bed and Breakfast is just steps away from the well known St Olaf College Campus and one mile west of the Carlton College Campus in the historic town of Northfield Minnesota. The Contented Cottage Bed and Breakfast is conveniently located 35 minutes south of the Mall of America and just 50 minutes northwest of the Mayo Hospital in Rochester Minnesota. The Cottage is perfect for out-of-town or out-of-country visitors, or as a well deserved staycation for St. Paul and Minneapolis metro area residents. Wake up from a restful sleep and the wonderful smell of a delicious three course breakfast. After Breakfast you can hike or bike the well kept trails up or down the Canon River or hit the shops in downtown Northfield. You can learn the history about how the Northfield residents defeated Jesse James and the Younger gang from robbing the First National Bank on September 7, 1876. This will be a destination place you will never forget. There are no strangers here, just friends who have not met.
