          It's been a great year for front-porch-sitting, that's for sure! It's fun to be up above the main street with a little separation and a birds-eye view of the town. We'll look forward to having you back!

          Everything is great about the Bird House Inn. We stayed twelve days and felt like we were on a cruise with the excellent restaurants within walking range. Highly recommend. Unfair to compare them to the hotels that TripAdvisor does.

          HI. How far away are you located from the Bay View Event Center in Excelsior?

          Response from Dave W | Property representative |
          It is three short blocks to the lake then about another three over to Bay View - or you can take the bike path for a short cut that would take about 5 minutes on foot.
