We stayed at Archer House for a weekend recently. It is a charming building dating from 1877, with enough remodeling to make it comfortable but not so much that is ruins some of the original features. We stayed in a large room on the third floor; it was comfortable and clean with a four poster bed and a view over the street. There are few "amenities" in the room, ie, no mini-bar or coffee maker, but we didn't care. There is wi-fi and a hairdryer and that's all I needed. The service at the front desk was excellent; friendly and accommodating. The hotel is also conveniently located on the picturesque main street of Northfield with Cannon River and the riverwalk in the rear, so we could walk to the shops and restaurants, and found the arts and farmers market in the park along with a vintage band festival. Doesn't get more "small town America" than that! (Oh, and a political demonstration!) This was clearly the best choice in the area and I would recommend staying there.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Archer House River Inn occupies more than a central location in Northfield. For generations of guests and locals, it IS Northfield - a geographical and architectural landmark, a host to history for nearly 140 years, and an exemplar of the town's spirit of hospitality. Built in the French Second Empire style, the four-story red brick building is grand in design, rich in character, and impressive in its amenities - which include two full-service restaurants, a coffee shop, riverside lounge, conference space and more. Yet with just 36 rooms, no two of which are identical, the inn is intimate in scale and unique in feel. The Archer House also boasts the city's best location, straddling the town's main thoroughfare and the Cannon River. Beyond its prominent setting and venerable history, something else makes the Archer House special: a spirit reflected by the staff's pride in upholding a 140-year legacy of caring for guests, and the ownership's loving stewardship of a property that embodies the heart and soul of Northfield. ... more less
