My partner and I spent two nights at the RBF. It is actually a newer home built to look old, and it is fantastic. From the many antiques to the reclaimed floorboards, it's stunning. We stayed in the Hearts and Flowers suite, and if you want a place to hole up in and relax, chose one of the suites over the more simple rooms. We saw all five rooms and would recommend them all. All the furnishings are top-notch.
The hosts, Robin and Elaine, have a well-practiced schtick that includes a very informative tour of the round barn on their property.
Robin also makes fresh bread every day, which rounds out their delicious, multi-course breakfasts.
The only things that make this a 4-star instead of 5-star review are: it was really noisy when they made breakfast (we wedged the extra blanket by the door the second morning which solved the problem), and while Robin and Elaine are certainly friendly and helpful, it did feel a bit practiced/forced.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Round Barn Farm B & B is in a 3-story country manor farm home, just outside Red Wing Minnesota along the Mississippi river valley. Each room has A/C, private bath with a jacuzzi tub for two and a gas fireplace or franklin stove. Large living room space is available with a wood burning fireplace right next to a generous screened in porch. During the warm season, we are hosts to some wedding celebrations that enjoy the B & B and a great barn dance in the historic round barn. ... more less
