A Perfect Get-Away

Seasons on Spirit Lake is a private, romantic, relaxing, and historic bed and breakfast inn located just west of the fascinating community of Vergas, Minnesota. Newly re-opened, the bed and breakfast is located five miles west of Vergas on County Road 4. The Inn has three non-smoking rooms available for single or double occupancy. Access to East Spirit Lake is integral to the guest experience.

And of course – there’s food involved. Becky truly enjoys feeding people and has a variety of meals planned. A pot of coffee and an early morning breakfast treat will greet guests. Breakfast is served between 9-10:30 a.m. Morning meals will vary, but some of Becky’s specialties include eggbakes, French toast variations, homemade granola, yogurt, fruit, gourmet coffee, juice, fruit smoothies, and assorted baked goods – with muffins, popovers, and fruit breads all being possibilities.

Incoming guests will discover their in-room refrigerator stocked with bottled water and soda. Gourmet cheeses, crackers, fruit, or a fresh-baked dessert might also tempt visitors upon arrival. Breakfast can be served within the guest’s room, the attached deck, or on the front porch. White linen tablecloths and napkins add to the dining experience. Please inform owners of allergies and/or dietary restrictions when making reservations.

The Hosts

Darrell and Rebecca Nielson, formerly from Springfield, MN, recently purchased the former Homestead portion of the locally well known B&B Log House and Homestead from Suzanne Tweten, daughter of Lyle and Yvonne Tweten – the originators of the site. The Nielson’s have long enjoyed staying at bed and breakfasts and are eager to explore the business side of inn-keeping. In fact, it’s been on Becky’s bucket list since 1987!

Darrell is recently retired from the calendar printing business. He has moved up to Vergas and been busy with getting the grounds in shape. He is originally from South Dakota. He’s tackling organization in the barn in preparation for an odds & ends sale better known as ‘What’s Out at the Inn’ later this summer.

Becky, originally from the Vergas area, is nearing the end of her teaching career as a speech pathologist and is ready to try inn-keeping as a new profession. She has always enjoyed entertaining within their turn of the century home in Springfield – throwing many bridal and baby showers along with other celebrations and seasonal party opportunities. The bed and breakfast experience at Seasons on Spirit Lake should fit in perfectly with her interests.
