Stayed in the northern lights room and river room. Both were great. Food was really good and the innkeepers were very friendly. Only complaint was no TV in room to be able to watch a movie. Very relaxing area, quiet and yet close to lots of activities.

We visited the Baptism river in for a long overdue get away. Lura and Andy have outdone themselves in creating the perfect place for some peace and serenity. The food was excellent. The bed was wonderful! The view was lovely. The location is great proximity to the many wonderful state parks located nearby. We have a new favorite place.

This was our first time staying at the Baptism River B&B. We absolutely loved it. It was very quiet, clean and the decor has the perfect "north woods" feel to it. The breakfasts were nothing short of fabulous. We have stayed at many B&B's in our 25 years of marriage. This is one we will be coming back too. The... More

The Baptism River Inn is just stunning. It's a beautiful log home. It is very clean and offers a very relaxing atmosphere. The tasty breakfasts were fresh and hot and I thoroughly enjoyed how Lura and Andy sat and chatted to get to know their guests.

This was a great place for my husband and I to celebrate our anniversary. I appreciated how private and clean everything was. Lura was a fantastic hostess and made us a delicious breakfast. I have absolutely no complaints about the time we spent at Baptism River Inn. It was a beautiful place.

We decided on this secluded, tranquil Bed and Breakfast after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. What a superb choice that we made that truly exceeded all our expectations. This lovely log home is in private wooden setting with only the sound of the trickling river nearby.The Inn provides amenities to enjoy in the lodge's lobby area during your stay.... More

The Sunset room was very cozy. A very comfy bed, couch and attention to detail. The beautiful log Inn set by the Baptism River is quiet, serene and a wonderful getaway from the busy Hwy 61 traffic. Quick access to Lake Superior, hiking and bike trails add to the value of this Inn. Lura is a wonderful host and excellent... More

The inn is nestled away in the woods. This stunning log home and rooms are tastefully decorated and comfortable. We stayed in the river room and relaxed to the sounds of the river flowing nearby. Breakfast was good. After exploring the area it was nice to get back, have a cup of tea and munch on a chocolate chip cookie... More

We enjoyed two nights at the Baptism River Inn. It was lovely. We could open our windows and hear the river. Our room was comfortable, clean and tastefully decorated. Our breakfasts were not only delicious but had beautiful presentation. Our hosts were kind and helpful. I'd love to go back every year if I possible!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Baptism River Inn - the room and furnishings were great, the breakfasts each morning were delicious and the location/setting was beautiful. Lura and Andy were gracious hosts and we plan to return on our next trip to the North Shore.
