Description

Circa 1867. Located on two acres of waterfront on the St. Croix River, this historic inn reflects an old New England-style architecture. Guest rooms offer Jacuzzi tubs, fireplaces, waterfront balconies and are decorated with American country antiques. A restaurant on the premises provides candlelight dining in the Wheel Room. Ask for Bananas Foster, a house specialty, or any flaming dessert. Or you might prefer to dine in the Catfish Saloon & Cafe, which has a more casual menu. Champagne Brunch cruises are offered on the Grand Duchess May-October. Three charter vessels are available for private cruises for weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, corporate getaways or for groups of 10-350. Visit the inn's web site for online availability.

Thank You for a fabulous weekend stay

Melissa and staff, we throughly enjoyed a much needed get away. The Inn is beautiful and we loved the choices to dine at. We dined in Fine Dining the first night and enjoyed the wine bar near the fireplace the 2nd. The food was fantastic as well as the staff. We look forward in coming back soon.

Wonderful Stay!

Enjoyed our stay for two days. We love the charming town and River. We stayed in a beautiful suite with Jacuzzi and Fireplace. We also enjoyed dinner in their dining room. We both had the Flaming Steak Diane and it was delicious. Will be back again in the fall.

Great Fun and Stay

We enjoyed our stay and never left the property. Totally enjoyed the Food and Wine at Swirl Wine Bar and dined at the Fine Dining Restaurant. Loved the Steak Diane made at the Table. Kaitlyn was great. Thanks also for the complimentary breakfast in the morning. It was yummy.
