This is my third time at the Pincushion Bed & Breakfast. A friend, her dog and I just came back from a nice short weekend trip and I am glad we made the effort to leave the Twin Cities despite the not so great early morning, sort of icy road conditions. It is always a treat to go Up North and Highway 61 is one of my favorite ever. At the Pincushion, Lynn and Ruby as usual, made us feel at home. The place is the most-unfussy B&B: the communal rooms are clean, well furnished, with great views. We staid in the “dorm” downstairs, which is cozy and roomy with 3 comfortable beds and the sauna is near by, plus we can ski right out of the door. The breakfast is always great, with a variety of tasty and nutritious food. The hosts are very knowledgeable about the area and a pleasure to interact with. Harry, the dog is a plus to the place. A bonus for us was to observe the Aurora Borealis. Lynn wake us up at 4:00 AM to see the celestial light show an I am so thankful for it as it was beautiful beyond description.
I am planning to return in the summer to go hiking in the great trails near by. Grand Marais is easy ride from the B&B.
