Violets Room

Violets room has not a violet in it, but was named after the former owner. It overlooks a small portion of the Lake and the River. It is a combination of royal blue and white and white wicker furniture adorns this room. It is the inn's famous room in that it has been featured in the Smucker's Catalog for five years running.

Type of bed: Queen

Chatalaine

While the Eastlake Room does sit east of the Lake, it was so named because of the style of the house. It is decorated in mauve and blue and features a huge mahogany sleigh bed. It also has a small view of the Lake and the River. This room will pamper you with a five and a half foot clawfoot tub that sits in the room.

Five Star Recommendation!

Our first stay at the Lumber Baron Inn was awesome, above our expectations. Ken and Sandy Berg were delightful hosts, sharing insightful history of their lovely, restored home. Our room was beautiful and very comfortable. We were delighted with the delicious, graciously presented, and served breakfast. I am telling all of our friends and family about the charming Lumber Baron Inn!

We stay with Ken and Sandy two or three times each year. We're never disappointed. Rooms are always clean. Breaksfasts are to die for. Ken and Sandy are very nice people. We look forward to every visit.

Perfect Honeymoon

My husband and I recently stayed at the Lumber Baron Inn when we eloped prior to his deployment to Iraq. Sandy, and her husband Ken, were wonderful. The breakfasts were delicious! The room was comfortable and a perfect 'homebase.' We can't wait to visit again - it will feel like coming home.
