Circa 1890. Experience an intimate Victorian charm and historic elegance at this inn facing the scenic St. Croix River. The original tin ceiling and period furnishings accent the distinctive lobby. Enjoy views of the river on the 300-foot-long patio or gather for refreshments in the Old Brogue Pub. Romantic guest bedrooms and suites have been given extra attention to décor and feature double whirlpool tubs and gas fireplaces. Many boast breathtaking vistas and balconies. Breakfast is a pleasure in Queen Victoria's Dining Room, and the restaurant also serves excellent American cuisine for lunch and dinner with an international wine list. Browse through the gift shop for a memento to bring home. Special packages are available.

Pros and Cons

Our stay was nice, it's walking distance to restaurants and shops. The room was very clean and gorgeous. However, the room needed some work on the heater. It was coming off the wall so a cold draft was coming in and frost was forming around it. The clerk working the check in desk was not very friendly or helpful.
