Nestled on the banks of the St. Croix River?which defines the border between Wisconsin and Minnesota?the Afton House Inn offers a quiet retreat just 30 minutes from Minneapolis. Most guest rooms in the historic inn are outfitted with gas fireplaces, whirlpool tubs, and balconies, some with river views. Enjoy a dinner of steak and seafood at the award-winning fine-dining restaurant. During the day, head to the Afton Alps Ski Area to sled and ski in winter or trek on riverside paths when it's warmer.
