Lovely time at Como Lake!

5 on June 27, 2016

I just returned from the great city of St. Paul and it was made even more special by staying at Como Lake B&B. Carla, the owner, was an excellent hostess, welcoming me and preparing a lovely breakfast. My special place was sitting in a wicker chair on the front porch, watching people on the path that surrounds the lake and listening to muted music from across the lake in the evening. I stayed in all three of the rooms, each having the uniqueness only a B&B can provide. Thanks Carla, and hope to back next year!

Wonderful week at Como Lake Bed and Breakfast!

My experience at Como Lake Bed and Breakfast was great! Perfect location for lots of walking - around the lake, to the Conservatory or to the pavilion for evening meals and live music by the lake or to the state fairgrounds. The home is beautiful and very clean. Breakfasts were fantastic - we were very spoiled with a delicious breakfast every morning. The owner, Carla, goes out of her way to make you feel welcome and at home. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast in St. Paul.
