Although a little off the beaten path, The Oliver Acreage provides a wonderfully relaxing and peaceful retreat from the rush of the outside world. My wife and I stayed here for two nights while on our honeymoon and we loved the beautiful grounds, the comfortable rooms, and the incredible hospitality by Gerri and Dick. We stayed in the largest of the three rooms offered (The Executive Room $169/night) and were more than satisfied with the comfort and luxury of the room and attached bathroom. Lots of little touches (including complimentary toothbrush and little chocolates from The Chocolate Ox), the warm conversation from the owners, and the incredible breakfast (maybe it was the 'honeymoon high', but my wife and I thought that the breakfasts that were served were some of the best we'd ever had, in terms of quality, quantity, and service), made us excited to come back to celebrate our anniversary in 12 months!…
I stayed at The Oliver Acreage on a recent weeknight when visiting the area for a business trip, and had a thoroughly satisfying and restful stay. Gerri and Dick welcomed me with good conversation, great food, and impeccably clean accommodations. The multi-course breakfast was similar to what I would expect at a nice restaurant in the Twin Cities, and all freshly prepared. The house is relatively new, very tastefully decorated, and doesn't have the creaks and temperature quirks that can be found in a vintage property. I would definitely return when travels take me to the Brainerd Lakes Area again.
We enjoyed two nights in the lovely barn suite. Everything, inside and out, is neat and clean, and very pretty! Loved all the chickens - live and decor - and Dick is a great guy. We were very comfortable, slept great in the very good bed, and enjoyed the old fashioned slipper tub. Wonderful and well equipped kitchen was a pleasure to cook in. This place is well worth the pretty, short trip into the country.
We were extremely pleased with our stay at this top quality B & B that has all the modern amenities with a wonderful romantic country feel. Very personal service, large bedroom with private bath and super clean throughout. The breakfast was absolutely perfect and featured many healthy and home-made treats. Gerri and Dick even prepared us a "to go" picnic breakfast basket of treats as we had to depart very early on Sunday morning for a Fishing trip. We have stayed in many B & B's throughout our previous travels and this ranks at the top. Peter and Shirley
