My husband and I stayed here over the 4th of July weekend. It was by far the best we've slept in a long time. The beds are very comfortable and the setting so tranquil. We loved listening to the birds singing and the breeze blowing through the windows. The breakfasts were wonderful and Lura and Andy were fantastic hosts! We... More

Great place to stay, very quiet and relaxing. Rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable. Breakfasts were great, as well as friendly owners. Sauna onsite looked inviting, but did not get a chance to use. Walking along the Baptism river is spectacular.

Have stayed there numerous times over the years, and Andy and Lura have become friends. Wonderful hospitality. The breakfasts are the best we have any where we stay. Love the cookies and coffee always available.

We were two nights at the Inn and it is in a beautiful location and such a cozy feeling!! Such a gorgeous log house is spectacular! Lura made the most delicious breakfasts! We had Danish friends with us and it worked great, River and Sunset rooms have balconies which were also nice. We will be back!

We stayed in the Evergreen Suite, which was a very large room containing a full private bath with 2 person tub, fireplace, and kitchenette. The sauna was an awesome amenity as well which we used it several times during our stay. My only negative criticism is that breakfast wasn't served until 9am. This was a little late for us. The...

We had a wonderful three night stay at this peaceful B&B that was set back in the woods with easy access to all North Shore activities. Our hosts were friendly and accommodating and we definitely plan to visit again.

This is our second visit - love the peace and quiet. So many places to hike in the area. Lura and Andy provide a wonderful atmosphere - lots of public space in which to relax - love their self check-in procedure. Enjoyed the sound of the Baptism River in the background and the lovely bird sounds. Did not miss TV... More

We stayed at Baptism River B & B in the Sunset room for three nights. What a beautiful, clean and peaceful get away! Lura puts coffee out in the morning, and serves a delicious breakfast promptly at 9. She allows you privacy, but is very personable when engaged in conversation. The price is very reasonable for the stay!

What an amazing wonderful getaway in the woods! This was our first and definitely not our last stay. We stayed in the Evergreen Suite. As soon as you open the door you know you know you are going to enjoy this. You walk into the breakfast nook which has a table full of coffee drinks, coffee maker, teas, chai tea,... More

My husband and I wanted to get one last snow shoe opportunity and landed on this B & B at the recommendation of friends that had just been up there. We were greeted with softly falling snow (I am sure Lura and Andy planned that one) and a warm, beautifully decorated log home and clear instructions on how to find... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An extraordinary B&B. We built the Baptism River Inn so you could be as social or private as you choose. Our cozy log lodge is centrally located on Minnesota's Lake Superior North Shore bordering Tettegouche State Park. Enjoy our secluded tranquil riverside setting. Expect an unpretentious atmosphere and friendly hospitality. Each guest room radiates its own relaxing casual comfort and warm rich detailed character. Luxuriously appointed private baths feature 2 person whirlpool tubs. Compare us to any quality North Shore accommodations. You’ll find our privacy, quiet, comfort, character, amenities and value will outshine most comparable area hotels, motels and resorts. Snuggle up to a crackling fire in our stone fireplace and unwind in our Finnish sauna. ... more   less
