“Mary S. "Sister Weekend"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2014

We have been doing our annual Sister Weekend for 21 years and this place was exceptional. It is beautiful and accommodated 10 of us perfectly in the Barn Lodge. The kitchen is fully equipped as we opted to make our own meals etc. We also rented the event room which was perfect for our group and had a beautifully decorated Christmas tree. We played games, worked on a project, danced and it was great. Sunday morning we were able to use snow shoes that were available and meander in the beautiful spacious yard. When we got there on Saturday later afternoon Dick even had the fire pit going for us! It was awesome and both Dick and Gerri are wonderful hostesses. Planning on taking our family back there in February for a get away.

My sister, mom and I enjoyed the hospitality of Gerri & Dick for just one night but what a night! We arrived in the afternoon to "check in" then came back hours later to find ourselves invited to the large dining room table for wine & dessert with the other guests and their friends. We had asked for a very early breakfast but that was no problem and the individual coffeecakes, cheese/scrambled eggs, and ham were delicious. I really hated to leave. We were in the main house with spotless bedrooms and bathrooms. I actually enjoy taking my shoes off at the front door!

My sister lives in the area and earlier in the summer she had her overflow guests stay in the Barn Lodge and she had a hard time getting them to come over to her place! Rick and Gerri are so personable and they want to make your visit easy and relaxing - they succeed!! My favorite part of a bed and breakfast is the interaction with the owners/hosts and this filled the bill. I loved hearing the stories of how they came to be here, the building of the house and barn, struggles and triumphs, etc., etc. I was in conversation heaven!

They are a bit off the beaten path but that only adds to the charm, beauty and quiet. Perhaps the signs could be a bit bigger but once you have found it, you know where you are going.

Room Tip: All are fab - a nice problem NOT to have to decide!

The Oliver Acreage is a gem in the woods of Pequot Lakes, MN. Dick and Gerri are gracious hosts and have created a beautiful, spacious and welcoming atmosphere at their newly built B&B and adjoining Barn Lodge. We stayed in the Barn Lodge which is a separate 2 story structure which provided us privacy from the main house and loads of space. It has 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, a full kitchen and many sitting areas - including a second story porch and a first floor patio. We stayed in this magical place for less than it would have cost to stay at a local hotel. Highly recommend!!!
