We’re gearing up for the holiday season here at Northern Comfort in Embarrass and have some super fun events planned — both on the farm and at local craft fairs and festivals. We’d love to see you! Plan a stay at Northern Comfort during one of our event weekends for extra fun, or stop by our booth when we’re out on the road!

Cozy Cottage in the Woods — Wednesday, October 18 through Saturday, October 21

We’re joining up with over 100 vendors at this yearly gathering at the Loon Lake Community Center in nearby Palo. Jeff and I visited last year and loved the mix of jewelry, vintage, antiques, pottery, textiles and tons of great food (mmmmm….. Jeff likes his cookies and I have a thing for pickled cauliflower!) This year we’ll be hosting our own booth with old and new fun stuff from the shop, candles, soaps and a small launch of the 3 Snugbugs custom clothing line. I’ll also have a bunch of samples marked for sale — one of a kind upcycled and custom made dresses, coats and skirts. Stop by and get started on your holiday shopping or just pick up something for yourself!

Halloween on the Farm — Friday, October 27 – Saturday, October 28

We’re so excited for this event! Stop by the farm where we’re hosting two days of fall fun and shopping right here at Northern Comfort. We’ll have a great selection of vintage and new gifts and collectibles, artisan goods, soaps, candles, treats, the 3 Snugbugs clothing line and more. Prior innkeepers, Pam and Kathy are coming up for the weekend, so stop by to say hi! We’ll also be joined by Early Frost Farm from just down the road, where there will be fun stuff from the greenhouse, along with super cool garden and housewares, preserves, honey and Early Frost balms, perfumes and more. Embarrass neighbor and musician, Matt Ray, will be stopping by Saturday afternoon for a bit of live music, so head to the farm for a bit of fun!

Weihnachtsfest (pending) — Saturday, December 2

We’re still working out the details on this, but plans are underway for Northern Comfort to head to Biwabik for the yearly Christmas festival the first Saturday in December. If you haven’t had a chance to check out this festival, make plans to visit this year! Vendors set up shop all along Biwabik’s picturesque main street, taking over the city hall, churches, bars and community centers. It’s a ton of fun and where else can you knock off a bit of holiday shopping in both churches and taverns at the same time!?

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.
