The Afton House Inn stands as a seamless blend of modern amenities and historic country charm in a picturesque location along the St. Croix River. Gordy and Kathy Jarvis, owners and Minnesota Restaurant Association Hospitality Hall of Fame inductees, warm visitors inside chambers equipped with a king-size mattress, a fireplace, and a double jacuzzi kept fastidiously free of gregarious alligators. Sizeable luxury rooms give guests extra space to stretch out as well as an elegant, romantic surprise at bedtime; standard rooms sequester boarders in uniquely decorated confines. Floral prints climb over bedspreads and wallpaper in most rooms, and antique desks or carved four-poster beds belie the invisible presence of WiFi and the helpful spirits of Victorian novelists.

As the sun rises, chefs scramble eggs with cheddar, griddle squares of french toast, and fry up sausage links with herbed hash browns for continental bread-breaking. Venture out to see currents of the St. Croix River sweep past, sporting a glamorous crown of cruise-liners and a scarf of synchronized-swimming beavers, or visit nearby Afton Alps for skiing, snowboarding, or snowball fighting.

Afton House Inn

Dozens of deluxe rooms roost within Afton House Inn's historic walls, where guests relax amid antique furniture and sate hungers in onsite restaurants. The beneficiaries of thoughtful renovations, deluxe rooms feature en suite jacuzzis, gas fireplaces, TVs, and balconies that overlook the St. Croix river, home to passing cruises and vacationing albatrosses. Antiques and oriental rugs lend each room its own distinctive charm, whereas downstairs, Current Restaurant embraces modernity. Fresh, locally sourced ingredients conspire in seafood-centric entrees and small plates on an approachable menu. Diners sample gluten-free pan-seared scallops with baby bok choy under gilded ruby-red ceiling lights while debating Heidegger’s theory on ordering dessert before dinner.

Long drive from Minnetonka but worth it. Food, service (Kelly), made it worthwhile.
