Beyer Haus, New Ulm MN
For Mother's Day, my husband took me back to the Beyer Haus Bed and Breakfast in New Ulm, MN. We had been there last summer and I fell in love with this place! It is a restored Queen Anne style home with a gracious hostess and host.
When you walk in the front door, you enter the front parlor with the carved stairway and nympth light.
Through the parlor is the dining room and the beautiful yard shows through the window. Note the elegance of the table setting.
This is the formal dining room.
This time we stayed in Catherine's room. Through the door you can see the area with DVD's, coffee, tea, and water always available.
Every room has a mouse house in the baseboard.
Personal touches were everywhere.
On arrival, we were served wine. Last time we stayed here the hostess gladly made reservations at a home we wanted to visit and the restaurant the other couple wanted to go to and had suggestions for places to see.
The breakfast was an elegant three course meal. We had requested small servings because we knew how much food we would be getting.
I'm a retired nurse who wonders how I ever had time to work. Now I spend a good part of my life knitting and teaching knitting. I'm married to the same man for 50 years and we have 2 adult daughters, 1 adult son,9 grandchildren ages 20 to 8 and a new great grandaughter. My Travel Friend and I started a chapter of The Red Hat Society.
