Stayed two nights while attending a friends wedding. Historic beautiful home. I would have liked to just tour the home and for the money stayed at a more reasonably priced hotel. The rooms were all large and themed different. They were decorated too dark for my tastes.

Thank you for the review. We value the opinion of all the traveling public even though this review is nearly a year past the date stayed. Our inn has airy, bright rooms and we usually hear "amazing" regarding our breakfasts. Guests wanting an excellent lodging experience find our rates appropriate.

The overnight stay was very pleasant. We stayed in the Peacock room and everything was clean, and we could tell that a lot has been done to please the guests. Lots of attention to detail. We walked downtown, played Scrabble, had a couple of complimentary sodas, and fell asleep in the very comfortable bed. The following morning the breakfast was... More

The best part of the whole experience is the breakfast! It seriously makes up for everything else. I should first state that my husband and I are a young couple, who would probably never stay in a B&B if we didn't have a gift card. We stayed in the Queen Anne room, which is interesting in itself. It's a large... More

Thank you for the review. It's great to hear that our guests enjoy our breakfasts because making something that guests really like is one of the things we enjoy most about innkeeping. We are in the historic neighborhood of Hudson so we do have neighbors who have backyards. But if you're looking at the sunset over the St. Croix River... More

I visited the Phipps Inn (bed and breakfast) this weekend and was struck by the beauty and ambience of the house. Spacious and architecturally striking, charming hosts. Nothing "old house" about the Phipps -- it is timelessly elegant.

Beautiful building. Delicious breakfast. Amazing hospitality! Quaint little part of town. Close location to Stillwater and the Twin Cities so if you have any business or pleasure to attend to there it is not a far drive. Free parking.

Thank you for the review. Staying two nights, as you did, gives you a great feel for the area and a more relaxing stay. And you get to try more of our fabulous Hudson restaurants. More

The Phipps inn is a very relaxing and wonderful environment. It's very clean, comfortable and well maintained.The breakfast is yummy and beautifully presented. Being able to eat ensuite was a relaxing part of the get away.

We're glad you liked the option of breakfast in the room. We've offered that since we started as innkeepers 14+ years ago and, on average, more than half of our guests choose that option for one or more days of their stay. Of course, we love to serve guests in our elegant dining room too, but it's guest choice! More

We were in town for only the night but would have liked to stay longer at the Phipps Inn. The inn was all decked out for Christmas with multiple trees and many other decorations.

My bride of 20 years surprised me on our twentieth anniversary to this historic Victorian Inn, the "Grande Dame" of Queen Anne houses from 1884. Each year we rotate to give each a relaxing experience, so next year is my turn! We have always admired the town of Hudson but have never spent time to explore. Well, now we had... More

We booked the Phipp's last minute on our drive down from Duluth for a quick get-away. We thought a bed and breakfast would be a nice change from the normal hotel, and we liked the history this location offered. We had looked at other BNB's in Stillwater but they were all booked, so we were leery that there was a... More
