The Magic Door Bed & Breakfast is a stately, three-story Victorian located on a spacious corner lot, just four blocks from downtown Northfield, MN. The house had been both a private residence and a triplex before we purchased it in February 2001 to create our bed & breakfast. As experienced bed & breakfast patrons, we have strived to create the type of place we personally would love to frequent by providing all the amenities we hope to find during our travels and getaways. The Magic Door was featured in the October 2002 issue of Minnesota Monthly magazine as one of nine great weekend getaways.
Northfield is a friendly, historic town situated 35 miles south of the Twin Cities on the Cannon River. It is home to St. Olaf and Carleton Colleges, two top-rated schools that draw students from all over the country. Northfield also offers many recreational opportunities such as biking, canoeing, golfing, and hiking in the nearby Big Woods State Park. Just a short walk takes you downtown for dining, shopping, or a visit to the local museum. Stroll along the river walk at sunset, or sip a glass of wine on the outdoor patio of a local restaurant. The Magic Door is open! We hope you will come and experience it.
