Bed and Breakfast

The Baptism River Inn was established in 2004. Dedicated to peace, quiet and privacy. Whirlpool tubs in all 4 guest accommodations. We practice sustainability and oppose sulfide mining in the region. Friendly empty nester hosts raised their 4 young children here. The most peaceful lodgingson the North Shore of Lake Superior.

Located on 32 wooded acres along a quarter mile of one of Lake Superior's major tributaries. Centrally located on Minnesota's North Shore.

Driveway crosses a logging era bridge from the early 1900s. River location boasts a long standing local swimming hole.
