For a perfect romantic getaway, or just a weekend of quiet luxury away from everything, Minnesota's bed-and-breakfasts and historic inns are just the ticket. Many B&Bs are in elegant mansions in historic towns, with lobbies filled with lovely antiques and a huge, wood-burning fireplace.
Individual rooms are often just as elegantly appointed, often with a big Jacuzzi, a fireplace, and a big antique bed topped by a fluffy comforter or a handmade quilt.
The locations are varied but typically charming: Many are in historic rivertowns along the St. Croix or Mississippi rivers, others in secluded sites in the woods, beside a lake, on the prairie, or a quiet residential neighborhood in an urban setting. Beautiful inns and B&Bs can be found in every corner of the state.
