Hello, you lovely people!
I’ve decided that I am moving to Minnesota just so I can live at THE PILLAR INN- 419 Main St., Cold Spring, MN.
Maybe just in the summers. Minnesota gets much too much snow.
The house was built in 1905 and has gone through several owners (including a grandfather of the current owner; he operated a medical practice out of the house).
It’s a beautiful old house with the architecture of a “free classic Queen Anne with Colonial Revival details,” according to the website.
There are 3 guest suites total, each with its own bathroom. I had chosen the Casablanca Suite for my stay (are you really surprised?).
Decorated with a 1940s Moroccan theme in mind, the suite is very relaxing and the bed is SOOOO comfy!
Everything is well maintained, even down to the floor rugs being surprisingly soft.
Since I was the only guest for the night (save the two tenants with permanent apartments, one upstairs and one in the basement), the other two suites were left open and I snuck a couple of pictures from the hallway.
Each room includes a flat screen TV with DVD players, and there are a few DVDs in each room. One option was, of course, Casablanca, so I figured I might as well complete the picture!
A full breakfast is served only on weekends. Since it was a weeknight when I was there, Jill, one of the owners, bought some continental breakfast items for me in the mini fridge in the upstairs sitting room, where there is also a Keurig, microwave (and popcorn!), and soda included.
The owners do not live on property, so I pretty much had the B&B to myself (never fear, they are only a phone call away). Though the downstairs was also amazing, I pretty much stuck to my room and the sitting room so as not to be invasive. Besides, I liked it up there!
If you find yourself in the charming Cold Spring area, be sure to book your stay at the lovely and yet extremely well-priced Pillar Inn. I bet this place is beautiful in the fall.
Thanks, Jill and Kevin!
Until next time, dahlings…
