A Blend of Farmhouse Charm, Local Fresh Food,
Northwoods Adventure and Finnish Heritage
Located just 30 minutes from Ely, Minnesota, Northern Comfort Bed & Breakfast is a traditional Finnish homestead tucked into 17 acres of pines in Embarrass, Minnesota, a pocket of the state that is rich in Finnish and Scandinavian tradition. Spend the day enjoying the great outdoors and rich history of Minnesota’s Iron Range and then come back to the farm to relax with a glass of wine in our gazebo or enjoy our wood-burning sauna.
The bed and breakfast includes five guest rooms and suites with an eclectic collection of vintage, primitive finds and antiques with cozy beds for a great night’s sleep. Each room features free wi-fi, plush robes and a selection of hand poured soaps made right here on the farm.
During your stay, enjoy farmhouse breakfasts made with local ingredients before heading out to have fun in the Northwoods. Or stick around the farm and enjoy complimentary coffee, hot cocoa and treats in the tearoom. Explore the 17 acre homestead with pristine examples of Finnish construction, walking paths and our Mercantile housed in a 1930’s dairy barn. Northern Comfort is dog-friendly, so enjoy the farm with your four-legged best friend!

About the Farm
Built in 1901, Northern Comfort Bed & Breakfast started as a Finnish boarding house in 1910 and retains that historic feel, including examples of the hand-hewn log buildings that make Embarrass one of America’s 16 Uncommon Places by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
We are located in northern Minnesota’s Iron Range, with convenient access to Giants Ridge ski slopes, Ely, the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, and Lake Vermilion.
