  • Nice, spacious, friendly


    This place is very nice, with plenty of space. Our large group could all be upstairs or downstairs together with plenty of room/seating in either. The owners are very nice and in my opinion, genuinely happy to help with questions before-during-after. I have recommended and showed this to many people before we stayed, and can now report back to them it surpassed my expectation by far! We went in December, so we couldn't utilize all the great stuff that's offered outside the house. But after the stay I want to do a summer trip here. I was worried that from all the nice pictures, I may be disappointed when I got there to stay. Let me ease your mind and say that it is exactly as advertised, beautiful! Have and will continue to recommend this place to friends and family. Hope you guys start seeing an uptick of more guests from southern minnesota😀 thanks for a great place to stay that surpassed all expectations!

  • Could NOT have asked for more!


    The Boars Adobe is truly beautiful. Such a fun story of how it came about and such a sweet and welcoming host family. They thought of everything! We only needed our clothes and food. Rain or shine, sun or snow- there is so much to do. And when you don't feel like doing anything, there are plenty of places to kick back and relax. We were sad to leave. We look forward to coming back some day!
