Sep, 2017: "Cozy, comfortable space to rest your head

I stayed here when I was in town for a high school reunion. I may have to invent another reason to visit as soon as possible! Carla was a warm, hospitable, accommodating host. I immediately felt that I was in the home of a relative or friend. And her dog, Lenny, is very sweet as well. I loved staying in the upstairs suite with the sleeping porch. Plenty of space for me to stretch out, relax and read. The house is beyond beautiful, and Carla's carefully curated collection of antiques made me feel like I had stepped back into time. Breakfast was also wonderful. Absolutely the perfect place to stay!!"



Second stay

Sep 2017: "My husband and I stayed at the Como Lake B&B in May after completing a bike ride half way across the country. We so enjoyed our time there, and the hospitality of the owner, Carla, that we decided to stay there again when we returned to finish our trip. Carla greeted us w a hug and we felt like we were home.

This special place, set in a beautiful setting, is unique in so many ways. We would highly recommend it. Now we are looking for an excuse to return to St Paul, so that we can see Carla again and enjoy her warm hospitality!"

The Como Lake Bed & Breakfast is a 5 star rated Inn which sits on the crest of a hill overlooking historic Como Lake. It is three miles from downtown St. Paul and nine from Minneapolis. Its location in a safe and quiet residential neighborhood close to bus lines and a convenient 20 minute drive from the airport affords our guests convenience coupled with peace and privacy. Street parking is right out front.


The three story Craftsman residence was built in 1915 by Elav Ericsson and fully restored by the Innkeeper, Carla Sherman in 2010. There are two guest rooms on the second floor and the entire third floor forms another suite.


Guests will enjoy the comfortable sitting areas filled with Carla's eclectic collection of antiques.  Whether you're in St. Paul for pleasure or business, to check out the area colleges or have a romantic evening, this charming residence will be your home away from home.
