Prairie Woods MinnesotaOne of the things we consistently hear from guests in regards to what they love about our Bed and Breakfast Inn is the relaxing and natural atmosphere they encounter along the serenely beautiful shores of Minnesota’s Green Lake.  Although there is sometimes nothing better than sitting by the lake and enjoying the quiet calm of Minnesota’s lake country, sometimes our guests are looking to get out and experience the region while they are here as well.  A local favorite attraction to visit is Prairie Woods Environmental Learning Center.  Book your room at our Minnesota Bed and Breakfast today so you, too, can enjoy our respite on the shores of Green Lake.
