Following is an excerpt to an article printed in the StarTribune (Minneapolis) on February 26, 1995.

For a winter getaway we recommend a unique and hidden B&B deep in Minnesota's woodland 1 1/2 hours north of the Twin Cities. It is the Giese B&B Inn nestled on 160 acres a half-mile south of Giese. (It is On Hwy. 18 west of Finlayson-- 320-233-6429 or Toll Free 888-220-0234.) Attached is an antique and collectible gallery filled with treasures, and next to the inn is another 13,000 square-foot building housing clean used merchandise and larger antiques.

Reasons we like it: Inn and shops immaculate, private and clean baths, tastefully decorated, smoke-free, great hosts, reasonably priced, delicious breakfast, lounge fireplace, quiet and natural outdoor beauty, country setting, surrounding towns provide evening dining and entertainment, browsing in the attached gallery, cross-country skiing on inn's hidden rolling meadowlands, a fun place to stop off of I-35. This getaway is one of Minnesota's best kept secrets!
