Northern Comfort Bed & Breakfast

Nestled in 17 acres of beautiful pine trees, Northern Comfort Bed & Breakfast is the perfect place to relax in a warm and cozy atmosphere. Enjoy our authentic wood-burning Finnish Sauna or try our on-site massage, available by appointment.

Built in 1901, Northern Comfort Bed & Breakfast started as a Finnish boarding house in 1910 and retains that historic feel, including examples of the hand-hewn log buildings that make Embarrass one of America’s 16 Uncommon Places by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
