We don't usually stay at b & b places, but we were attending a country music weekend in Walker, MN, and were a little late to book the hotel where we usually stay. Reviews of Embracing Pines were very favourable, so we went ahead and booked our weekend.
We had VIP tickets for the music event, which gave us choice seating, drinks and meals. We felt even more like VIPs when we were at Embracing Pines. The house is in a beautiful setting, we had an ultra comfy room and bed, and access to another room for lounging around, complete with games, WIFI, microwave, fridge and a little balcony. The breakfasts were a feast for our eyes and taste buds, prepared with a beautiful homemade gourmet flair. Being at Embracing Pines was all about pampering, and we love that! It was a great place to stay.
