My husband and I were wrapping up a bicycle trek from Oregon to Minneapolis and found Como Lake B&B online, on our way into the city. We felt very fortunate that there was availability. It was the perfect place to relax and recover and prepare for our trip home. Karla greeted us as if we were old friends, got us...

Stayed here for a few days while our daughter was hospitalized for surgery. This is the most comfortable and welcoming B&B we've ever stayed at. The owner (who had to leave on a trip while we were there) and her "inn-sitter" were both wonderful--kind, friendly, caring, accommodating, and genuine. And oh my, can they cook breakfast! We stayed in the...

Hi Jamie; Thanks so much! I'm just sorry I couldn't be here for you whole stay. Glad things went well for you in St Paul. I look forward to meeting the rest of your family.

My boyfriend and I had often talked of planning an overnight stay here so in celebration of his 55th birthday, I planned a surprise stay for the two of us. The location was perfect for the day I had planned. It was close to everything: the Minneapolis Institute of Art, Wuollet's Bakery (their cupcakes are AMAZING!), and Hell's Kitchen for...

We spent one night here in the Lake view Room. The room is ice but small with a nice unshared bathroom across the hall. The house itself is cozy and attractive and looks like a nice place to chill out. The breakfast was good. What really made this place stand out was the flexibility and helpfulness of the staff. They...

I just returned from the great city of St. Paul that was made even better by staying at Como Lake B&B. Carla, the owner, was a gracious hostess, providing a welcoming atmosphere, delicious breakfast and unique decor and rooms that I can only find in a B&B. My favorite place was sitting on the porch in a wicker chair overlooking...

How is it that you can move into a place for a few days and within an hour you feel like you always lived there and there is absolutely nothing to make you feel like you don't belong? Carla has obviously mastered this art and makes it seem effortless. We've stayed in a lot of B&B's all over the world....

This B&B is everything we had hoped for. The room and common areas were beautiful, breakfast delicious, and Carla was a wonderful host. We walked around Como Lake daily and even kayaked. The surrounding neighborhood was just beautiful. And Lenny the dog (the prince of Como lake) was always welcoming us home.

My wife scheduled this as a surprise for our 2-year anniversary. It was perfect! It felt much more personalized and individual than a hotel, and more upscale and fun than an AirBnB. Plus Carla made us breakfast and it was delicious! Everything from the atmosphere, the seating area, the adorable dog that welcomed us when we came in -- it...

My son and I stayed at Como Lake B&B while in St. Paul to visit Macalester College, and it was quite convenient. The home overlooks Como Lake and the surrounding park, and is surrounded by gorgeous 19th century homes. Carla's kind and gracious hospitality was pervasive throughout our visit. When arriving late, she met us at the alley behind the...

Carla was a great host and interesting to talk with. It was like being at home! Great old house with a view and super service! Centrally located so our visit didn't need to drive a lot. Give Lenny a scritch and he'll be you buddy for the rest of your stay.
