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. It's a nice alternative to drive up here on the way to the twin cities than driving on the... More

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

We stayed at the Historic Calumet Inn for two nights in snowy November. A long-time friend and I were looking for a half-way driving point to meet, sew together, and visit the Pipestone National Monument, the location where Native people of many tribes have quarried red pipestone from early times, and which is a sacred area. We were very fortunate... More

This is a wonderful place that I plan to revisit. The history of it is too long to write but there is alot of it. Including ghost stories and hauntings of particular rooms. The down side is that it isnt very handicapped accessible.
