We had a great weekend at the Birdhouse. Very clean, cozy and the company was excellent. Great place just to hang out and explore the adorable town. Lots of things to do and great shopping and restaurants! The highlight is Dave the owner of the Birdhouse. He cooks up an incredible breakfast with a Percision cut fruit salad!!! His speciality!!...

I recently stayed at The Birdhouse, and enjoyed the location (on the "main street" in downtown Excelsior) the comfortable accommodations, and the hospitality. The proprietor, Dave, was available for any questions I had prior to our stay, and the check-in/check-out processes were painless (which can be a problem with B&Bs).

We rented the whole place for our wedding party and even had a faux reversal dinner there on the patio outside on the first evening. It was incredible! So close to the water and very spacious for us all to have room and be comfortable. Breakfast was absolutely outstanding!!! Some people in our party left their belongings and Dave went... More

Our family rented the whole house for three nights. Dave was very accommodating, friendly, and kind. I highly recommend Bird House Inn for any get-away. The house is in a great location with restaurants, shops, a park, walking path, and even boat cruises all within three blocks. The front porch, patio and grassy area were perfect for sharing time together,... More

Ten friends gathered at the Bird House Inn for a wonderful reunion thanks to gracious hospitality, a lovely setting, and a convenient location for shopping and activities! We relaxed on the porch, enjoyed the gardens, and appreciated the many amenities. Thanks, Dave and Gretchen! I hope to return!

.....And this was the perfect place for us to meet and stay for 5 days because it was important for us to be together in a home-like atmosphere. Very nice accommodations with charming bedrooms and comfortable beds. A nice breakfast was served in the morning at a large table in the dining area. The main floor living room was large... More

I travel into the twin cities area on business and my new favorite spot is the Bird House Inn, Charming accommodations with warm hospitality. The Bird House Inn is an easy walk to Lake Minnetonka and several fantastic restaurants. Fun Stay!

My wife and I and our four grown children stayed at the Bird house while attending a Wedding. We really enjoyed the stay. Rooms where very nice and clean. We used the main gathering area quite a bit as we had a lot of catching up to do as we are spread all over the USA. Dave and his wife... More

The Birdhouse was so hospitable to us and our young children (many B&Bs are not), and yet respectful of those who might be taking a break from the noise and hubbub of kids. Also this is a great bike trip to take from Minneapolis. We biked the whole way on trails (except a small jaunt through Hopkins), and the trail... More
