This was a very nice, historic inn that was restored beautifully. We stayed in a beautiful, spotless room with our own bathroom and had a secure place to store our bikes. There was a large porch to sit and relax in the quiet little town and a beautiful fountain. She had roses and other flowers for us to enjoy. Our hosts were very friendly and full of stories and history of the area! We had a wonderful breakfast. We will definitely stay there again! The only thing is we had to go to another town to eat supper. A little restaurant or pub there would be nice!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Andor Wenneson Inn was built in 1904 along the tracks of the Southern Minnesota Railroad, now the beautiful Root River State Trail. Built by businessman W. Andor Wenneson, the hotel served rail travelers coming through Peterson for many years. The building changed hands several times, also serving as a boarding house and eventually as apartments. It then sat empty for about ten years. In 1994, it was completely restored and renovated to its historical beauty and charm. In 2001, the carriage house was built into four more rooms, making a total of nine rooms in the Inn. Each room is complete with a private bath available for guests, including two with whirlpool tubs. The third-floor suite has two bedrooms and a sitting room; with elegant dormers and window seats overlooking the courtyard and bluffs. ... more less
