The decor is North woods adorable with antiques and thoughtful touches everywhere. The 3-season porch alone is bigger than many hotel rooms.The description and pictures on the site don't begin to do it justice. The owners are... More

Sue and Steve who own the B & B were nothing but kind and accommodating. Sue met us when we checked in and we chatted like old friends - which we kind of were. (We had stayed at the Dakota Lodge for our wedding night 3 years earlier.) After showing us where the goodies were (cookies, popcorn, tea, water, movies,... More

She showed us where we could find snacks and beverages. She then took us to our room. I loved the room we stayed in. It was very comfortable and had really unique... More

We have stayed at the Kettle River Cabin (part of Dakota Lodge B&B) many times in all seasons and expect to for years to come. In the summer I brought my parents up for a relaxing week to go for walks in the woods and listen to nature and reminisce. In the fall we have done "girls weekend away" and... More

We loved Kettle River Cabin. When we arrived is was clean, warm and inviting. There were fresh cookies on the counter. I had asked for some wine and it was there when we arrived. Friends and I went up to see the fall colors. It was a great wooded area surrounded by the most colorful trees I've ever seen. Cabin... More

We had a great stay. The proprietor was friendly, and we had a delicious breakfast delivered to our door. The room was wonderfully decorated and the hot tub was clean. The price was reasonable as well. I'll definitely be back.

Pictures of the cabin cleaned have been submitted. 3 days of high winds had just passed through our area and a few screens were loose. This was corrected immediately. This facility has all... More
