We are easy to find by just driving South of Interstate 94 on State Hiway 29 out of Alexandria, MN. If driving west from Minneapolis drop south on State Hiway 28 from Sauk Center. This puts you in Starbuck, one of the prettiest areas of West Central MN. This is where the original Starbuck coffee was served (not the brand name either - the real thing!) From Starbuck, continue south on State hiway 29 for only four miles. Our sign will direct you right onto 310th Avenue where you can see our towering Cottonwood trees from the hiway. Our location is perfect for overnight stabling or as a lovely end-destination riding vacation spot whether you prefer to ride a one horsepower or more.

Our wide circular drive provides easy in and out for large trailers.  The packed drive also provides a good surface for exercising travel weary horses. Our B & B is located on a gravel road just a scant quarter mile from State Hiway 29. Avenue 310 connects to other gravel roads that provide a wonderful scenic ride through these rolling hills.

     Your Hostess, Gwen Meier, descendent of those early hardy Scandinavians, is proud to provide a homey country inn for people with or without horses .  Gerhard Meier's rich German heritage shows in cuisine called a European Sideboard Breakfast that is sure to delight you.  Neither Gerhard nor Gwen like overly decorated 'fluff', so they have created a unique decor that they call Southwestern Shaker.  Come and enjoy Minnesota in this out-of-the-ordinary Bed and Breakfast.

     Horse Riders, Bird Watchers, Bicyclists, Bikers, Book Browsers, Nature Lovers, Fishers, Out-Door Enthusiasts and History Buffs, are all invited to discover the charm of Just Ridin' Inn.
