A Blend of Farmhouse Charm,
Northwoods Adventure, and Finnish Heritage

Located just 30 minutes from Ely, Minnesota, Northern Comfort Inn 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.


About the Farm

Built in 1901, Northern Comfort Inn 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.

The inn features 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.


Make yourself at home in the living room and enjoy a book, play a game, or just relax by the fireplace and chat with new friends. Explore the farm — over 17 acres — full of wildlife such as deer, moose, bald eagles, and birds. Stroll through the yard, visit the Northern Comfort flock of chickens and enjoy the screened gazebo.
