The rooms, the food, the staff, the owners (Vanda and her mom) are amazing. I've been living in the Pipestone area for 30 years, but due to circumstances needed a room for 3 months back in the the fall of 2014. I can honestly say there is nowhere else in Pipestone I would rather stay. My friends and I have... More

Do not stay at the Calumet in the spring. We stayed there about May 10. The hotel was cold since they turned the heat off thinking it was time to switch to air conditioning. It was so cold we could not take a bath or shower. Sunday night the lounge is open for dinner. The flat iron streak is horrible.... More

Thank you for your review. Again, we apologize about turning off our boiler system in anticipation for (what was supposed to be) the warm weather. We were offering space heaters that day to guests who needed them, so we regret that you never received one. Our Flat Iron Steak is a consistent top seller here, so we hope you give... More

Fourth Floor is becoming the new waterfall how could there be so many leaks? Trying to take pictures while getting wet is unpleasant. That needs to get fixed other than that it's a very nice place.!!!

Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased that you enjoyed your room and your stay, but we deeply apologize for the leaking issues at the 4th floor hallway that morning. The storm here in Pipestone was heavier than usual, and, although it is a simple fix, our roofer was not able to come until it stopped raining. We thank... More

Looking for a great Historic Hotel not far from I-29 or I-90, this is the one. Great service, great food, very friendly town. Owner Vanda goes out of her way to make you feel welcome. Great job. Will be back.

Happened to stay here enroute from SD to home, because we found it on the Internet, and what a great choice! Beautiful historic structure, large rooms with historic design, antiques, & comfy beds. On site lounge, pub in the basement, and lovely restaurant which was serving Easter Brunch this morning. We couldn't stay, but the restaurant was beautifully decorated for... More

Had a great night in the second floor jacuzzi room suite after a long day of hiking. Was treated very well and we would stay again in a heartbeat:) Very sweet staff! Love the old building and details.

The Calumet was the most amazing experience I’ve ever had in a hotel. I travel for work 3 weeks out of the month and have stayed in hundreds of hotels, eaten in thousands of restaurants around the world and have never encountered such a grand place. I had a real-estate deal in Pipestone, MN that lasted 6 months and as... More

This is a neat place! Great bedding, comfortable bed, great old clawfoot tubs. Very clean, and great prices. Great dinner in the restaurant (homemade ribs and carrot cake, neat room- each one is different. Lots of history in this little town.

Gorgeous old building. There was a mis-communication in our booking, but the owner, Vanda, was WONDERFUL. She allowed us to choose our room and upgraded us with no charge. We ended up in the fabulous Melody of Love suite. As we are huge Hotel Hell fans (although we honestly had no idea which rooms had been redone) this was a... More

We found the Historic Calumet Inn on a trip to Minnesota during the week of Thanksgiving. We searched tripadvisor to find an interesting place to stay in the Pipestone area. Thankfully, we found the Historic Calumet Inn. The facility is historic, clean, and neat. The building has so much character. The rooms have been nicely remodeled recently by the owners.... More
