My husband I and stayed at the Pillar Inn while spending family weekend at nearby St. Ben's/St. John's. The room was spacious, cozy and quiet and the staff very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was hearty and delicious. We will definitely return enthusiastically on future visits to the colleges.

We enjoyed a weekday night of R&R in their lovely Grand Suite. The suite is spacious, clean, and nicely decorated. Bed sags. I didn't know it had a front balcony, which was such a nice spot to sip wine on the balmy fall evening, and have the light breakfast in the AM. I do wish they had a better/nicer selection... More

I felt right at home when I stayed at The Pillar Inn. I arrived around 10pm, earlier than I had told them, and called the owner who contacted Steve. Steve immediately came over and checked me in. I stayed in the Victorian Suite. They have transformed the closet into a bathroom and each room has it's own bathroom. They transformed... More

Pillar Inn provided a restful evening that rejuvenated my aching body and work stressed mind. Love the homey decor, whirlpool tub, big screen TV, and hot tea and cookies. So much better than hotel stay. Accommodating hostess and quiet location-even liked the church bells. Could use better lighting options for Casa Blanca and bigger water heater for wp tub. Have...

We had a very good experience. We had a little trouble with our room so they move us to the large room. It was a very cold weekend so they provided us with nice space heaters to make up the difference. The breakfast was the best - Steve served us well and was available when needed. Would recommend this one... More

I travel a lot and when I am in Cold Spring, Minnesota my absolute choice is the Pillar Inn. It's comfortable and a home away from home and only a block from downtown. The Casablanca room is my favorite. A must.

We stayed here on Christmas Eve and had an absolutely lovely time. Our room (the Grand Suite) was clean and lavishly decorated. The staff was helpful and the food that awaited our arrival was absolutely delicious. The two-person tub was very comfortable, and so was the four post bed. It was a memorable stay and we hope to visit again.

We paired our stay at the Pillar Inn with a tour of the Third Street Brewery and had one of the most fun and relaxing weekends I have ever experience. The staff were incredibly kind and helpful and the rooms were all decorated in intricate and beautiful Christmas decor. It was truly the getaway we needed before the craziness of... More

We stayed in this bed and breakfast for 3 days in early July and found it to be a treasure. We were in the area for a family reunion and decided to find alternate accommodations from where the rest of the family was staying and happened upon this bed and breakfast through surfing the internet. The people at the inn... More
