The Bird House Inn is right on Excelsior's fun and active main street. The innkeeper is ready to accommodate guests with special requests, and the food is delicious. We even got to pick some fresh strawberries to go with our excellent breakfast.

It's a beautiful setting, both the expansive porch and gardens and the well-kept interior. We had an afternoon event there, which was very nice, but I think it would be most relaxing for a summer stay in town.

Our stay in the Garden Room was great. The fireplace was a charming and welcome addition during a snowstorm. The bed was comfortable. Everything was clean and tidy. The owner was laid-back and friendly. The whole place exudes a low-key welcoming vibe.

It is three short blocks to the lake then about another three over to Bay View - or you can take the bike path for a short cut that would take about 5 minutes on foot.
