Loved our getaway!

This was our third visit to the Baptism River Inn B&B and we have enjoyed each one having stayed in a different room each time. The setting is so peaceful and the rooms are beautifully decorated and comfortable. We have loved Lura's breakfasts and the conversations around the table. We will return and look forward to our next visit.

Evergreen Suite

We stayed in the Evergreen Suite for one night on 5/9/17 and loved it! Wished we could have stayed longer. The suite and food were exceptional! The Baptism river is beautiful and the rushing water can be heard when the windows are cracked open, making the experience even better! The river is very picturesque with large rocks to climb/sit on and just enjoy the whole experience. Internet connection was good.


A beautiful place in a wonderful setting

Stayed in the Evergreen Suite. Was a great place to stay--more than enough room to spread out and relax and not be in one another's space all the time. Separate eating room was great in our suite(Other guest eat communally). We were close to great skiing(National Forest Lodge) and Northwoods skiing in Silver Bay. The breakfasts were filling and presented in a modest and simple manner. The whirlpool was a great addition after several hours of CC skiing. The shower leaked a little and needs attention. The only real fault was the lack of even all of the local stations on the TV(only Fox and Public TV). Other than that--this place is great--

We just spent a wonderful weekend here for a little get-away. WOW, what a wonderful place to stay. This home is beautiful, comfortable, cozy, well-appointed and all in a lovely setting in the woods. We can't wait to plan our return trip! Lura and Andy are wonderful hosts and the breakfasts (and cookies!) were absolutely scrumptious! A hike down the trail to the Baptism River was great and offered a lovely setting for pictures, including the cute little Sauna House! If you are looking for a romantic getaway...look no further! If you need a TV - go to a hotel...this is an unplugged from the world's troubles place. Stayed July 2016


North Shore Getaway

4.8 on July 30, 2016

This was a great location to explore the North Shore of Lake Superior. We stayed in the River Room. The best thing about it was the sound of the river running past and the lovely balcony. The B & B was very clean and quiet. You could not hear the other guests when you were in your room. We loved our stay.


anniversary getaway

Nice, secluded retreat along the North Shore. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were great. The owners were great to visit with. The sauna looked inviting but did not have a chance to use. Walked along the Baptism river, beautiful views and swimming opportunities.

Hidden Gem

4.0 on June 07, 2016

My wife and I came here for our 5th anniversary. We stayed in the Evergreen Suite. It included a private bath with 2 person tub, a fireplace, a kitchenette, and a small patio. The room is very large and I appreciated that. We also took advantage of the sauna which was great. I loved waking up to the faint sound of the Baptism River rushing over the rocks. We loved the location of this B&B best, it is nestled in the woods off the highway and is very peaceful. We recommend this place highly and would come back. Our only negative criticism is that breakfast isn't served until 9am which is a little late for us.
