We made our second weekend trip up to the Baptism River Inn last weekend and brought our friends along to share our enjoyment. You can just feel the stress melt away as you drive up the North Shore from Two Harbors and pull into the driveway of the Inn. The large log cabin house is comfy and tastefully decorated. Our bedroom was so cozy, we wanted to stay and read, except that we also wanted to go skiing. From our window, we could see the sun rising. We had great skiing on the trails at the National Forest Lodge, which Andy and Lura also own. We were thrilled with the powder snow, and the varied forests we skied through. We had a nice hot cup of coffee in the dining hall afterwards and ate our lunch. My husband and I had missed the sauna at the Baptism River Inn on our first trip and were determined to try it out this trip. We were not disappointed. Don't miss it! You'll feel rejuvenated afterwards! Lura's breakfasts and friendship are wonderful. I always bring a book along to read, but find myself more interested in the reading material at the Inn. Two days is a MUST at Baptism River Inn; we hated to leave.
