  • Introduction

    The Minnesota Bed & Breakfast Association

    We're here to help you plan your next getaway to Minnesota

    Imagine igniting reminiscences in a lighthouse or enjoying the experience of a sod house overnight or locked up in a jailhouse B&B. Tuck into a sweet night's sleep in a pullman car, caboose or carriage house. Choose from Victorian mansions, cottages in the woods, lakeside castles, log houses, a former hospital or a former church. The adaptive reuse of historic properties along with new construction into splendid accommodations is complimented by warm hospitality, gracious sharing of the area's offerings and delicious food.

    Join us for your family fishing vacation, horseback riding, canoeing, and/or hiking. For a winter vacation a cozy log cabin will keep you wrapped in comfort after a day of cross country skiing, snowshoeing, winter hiking or ice fishing. Minnesota "nice" is all about romance, nature, and friendly innkeepers! Whether you seek recreation, relaxation or hibernation, a Minnesota B&B awaits your pleasure.

  • North Central/West

    Minnesota Bed & Breakfast Guild - North Central/West regionThe North Central/West region of Minnesota is rich both in culture and wilderness. There are thousands of lakes in this area, including some of the largest in Minnesota, making it an ideal place for all types of boating and water sports. Step across the mighty Mississippi River at its headwaters at Lake Itasca. Use your Minnesota Bed and Breakfast as a base and explore the 65,000 miles of shoreline and over 1,000 islands of the Lake of the Woods. Hike the trails, or hop in a boat. Set up camp in a heated icehouse for winter ice fishing, and snowmobile for miles on the Can-Am or Northern Connection Trails. In the Red River Valley, which sits on the eastern edge of the Great Plains, bird-watch or lay in the tall native grasses of the state parks that preserve the land as it was before cultivation.

    Come in from the wilderness, hop on a bike, and explore the many towns in the region that are connected by peaceful roads. By car, take advantage of museums and historical attractions from Fargo to Alexandria. There is lovely 19th-century architecture in Fergus Falls, and quirky weekly turtle races in the charming Nisswa Square. Find out why Alexandria considers itself to be the "birthplace of America", and see giant statues of Paul Bunyan in Bemidji. There are many lovely MN Bed and Breakfasts in the region - stay in more than one.

  • Minnesota Bed & Breakfast Association - The South RegionSouth Minnesota was once home to the Dakota Native Americans. There are several sites throughout the region that relate the tragic events that took place between the Dakota and the early pioneers. Select a Minnesota B&B as a base from which to visit Fort Ridgely State Park and Sioux Agency historic sites near Morton and Granite Falls. German settlers were prevalent here, and the city of New Ulm proudly showcases its Heritage with a glockenspiel and a popular Octoberfest.

    The Mississippi River runs wide at Lake Pepin, and the valley here is one of the most lovely in the country. After a filling breakfast at a Minnesota Bed and Breakfast, the area is easily explored by bicycle on the Cannon Valley, Root River, and Sakatah Singing Hills bike trails. Come in autumn, and see the landscape come alive with fiery fall colors. Architecture buffs will enjoy one of the oldest homes in the state in Faribault, and a Prairie Style bank in Owatonna. There are several historic mills in the region that exhibit an important part of Minnesota's economic history. While in Kellogg visitors can spend time in a unique toyshop, full of antique and handcrafted toys.

  • Twin Cities

    Minnesota Bed & Breakfast Association - Twin CitiesMinneapolis and St. Paul are two of the most interesting cities in the United States. In spite of being the "Twin Cities", they actually have distinct characteristics. Minneapolis favors broad boulevards and modern architecture in the city core, while St. Paul has more narrow streets and well-preserved late Vitorian homes. Both have friendly citizens, thriving arts communities, and first rate museums. Stay in a Minnesota Bed and Breakfast make the Twin Cities your home for a while; they are a great place to start exploring this state. If the weather is fine, stroll through the Walker Art Center and the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden. The Science Museum of Minnesota is interactive, kid-friendly, and lots of fun. Be sure to tip a hat to the Mary Tyler Moore Statue in downtown Minneapolis when passing by.

    Some of the finest chefs in Minneapolis-Saint Paul like to use local, organic produce whenever possible, and a wide variety of cuisine is available, from Vietnamese to Ethiopian. The Guthrie Theater attracts top-notch performers. The Fitzgerald Theater, built in 1910 and restored in 1986, serves as a home base for Garrison Keilor's Prairie Home Companion, but draws internationally acclaimed acts as well. South of the cities, visit the Mall of America. Or drive 30 minutes east of St. Paul and take a river boat down the St. Croix River. Ask the innkeepers of a MN Bed and Breakfast what they like to do in their home town, and you are sure to enjoy your stay.

    Minnesota Bed & Breakfast Association - The Northeast RegionGateway to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, which hugs roughly 100 miles of the Canadian border, this is one of the most peaceful regions of Minnesota. Visitors can pick up a paddle and head out onto silent waters, or in the winter don skis and explore miles of world-class cross-country ski trails. Listen for the howls of wolves from the safety of your MN Bed and Breakfast, and while in the wilderness keep an eye out for moose and bear. Head east and end up on the craggy northern shores of Lake Superior; one of the most beautiful areas in the state, it can be accessed via the North Shore Drive, which runs from Duluth to Canada, or by foot through more than 200 miles of the Superior Hiking Trails. Farther southwest in Gilbert, folks can explore the woods in their ATVs and trucks in the only off-highway vehicle park in the state of Minnesota.

    The Northeast is also rich in history. Find a Minnesota Bed and Breakfast in the town of Two Harbors, where several museums explore the relationship between the town and Lake Superior. Learn about early Swedish settlers in the town of Mora, and the early fur trade in Pine City. The Discovery Center in Chisholm reminds visitors of Minnesota's culturally diverse mining past. There is something for everyone in Northeast Minnesota.

  • Cookbook: Minnesota Mornings and Beyond

    It is with great intention that we use the word "beyond" in the title and content of the Minnesota Bed and Breakfast Association's second cookbook, Minnesota Mornings and Beyond.  We meant it to be more than breakfast recipes initially. You'll often experience afternoon snacks, a full cookie jar, and sometimes tea or evening appetizers for special holidays. Within some regions of our state, innkeepers work together promoting their area and offer tours of their inns with special treats during the holidays or to raise funds for a local cause. Many of the MBBA inns even offer lunch and or dinner. There is nothing that the Minnesota B & B Association members would like more than for you to come and enjoy their fine food and think "beyond"! You may even purchase the cookbook by calling 651-438-7499.
