Baptism River Inn was outstanding. Beautifully decorated, comfy rooms and furnishings. Breakfast was delicious. We felt totally pampered and nurtured by the setting and experience at the Inn. Highly recommended!

Baptism River B&B is a gem on Minnesota's beautiful north shore.This wonderful get-away spot is tucked back off the road, right next to the lovely Baptism River. It is quiet, very clean, beautifully decorated and maintained, and you are fully taken care of by your hostess, who is a joy to talk with. We have been twice and will go... More

As always ~ quiet, well-organized, thoughtful planning in both its river/woods setting and privacy. Ideal place for reading or quiet contemplation, or a definitive "re-set" in the woodfired sauna and snowbank. Northshore ski and scenic access.

Our recent weekend stay at Baptism River Inn B&B exceeded our expectations, and we heartily recommend it as a wonderfully relaxing getaway spot in pristine surroundings. We loved it all: tasteful decor, the cozy charm of log walls, a comfy downstairs sitting area with a crackling fire, absolutely scrumptious breakfasts, immaculate housekeeping, and proximity to hiking trails, to name a...

Our 2 day stay was very pleasant and relaxing. We were provided instructions for a self check in and everything was in order. Our interaction with the host during our stay was brief but cordial and helpful. The concept for this B&B is more contemporary in construction and accommodation (big log home/cabin) than a more traditional renovated/restored home experience. It... More

I so enjoyed Lura. She was so easy to talk to, and I loved her stories. Thank you so much for a wonderful time. The North Shore area is so beautiful. There are so many things to do. The Baptism Inn gets you started on the right foot with a restful sleep, and a wonderful breakfast.

We had never hiked any of the North Shore trails so decided to head out to see some fall color. Baptism Inn was the perfect spot: whirlpool at end of the hiking day & crackling fire to curl up at with a glass of port. We had opportunities to chat over breakfast with other visitors which was very enjoyable. Yet... More

Beautiful B and B. Very comfortable. Lura and Andy were wonderful hosts, and we enjoyed every bit of our stay there! Make sure you head down and check out the river - fun little place to play around. Highly recommend it!

Always love this location. Private, low key and beautiful. Great hiking a short distance away. Great breakfasts and a sauna in the woods that is wonderful. Very friendly inn keepers who are helpful with directions and suggestions

We celebrated our anniversary by returning to the Baptism River BandB, the place we honeymooned 9 years earlier. It's a beautiful place to stay; the amenities are top notch, the breakfasts are prepared with gourmet ability, the location is perfect for sightseeing north and south, and Andy and Lura are friendly hospitable hosts. They epitomize 'Minnesota Nice'. The north shore... More
