The Inn was built as a single family home in 1911 by veterinarian Harley N. Viers. Later his daughter Winifred Wooster a medical school graduate, set up practice in the front part of the home. She and her husband David Wooster a high school industrial arts teacher lived in part of the home and rented out the back portion. People today still remember it as Dr. Wooster's office. Winifred passed away in 1967, the property at that time was purchased by Harry and Muriel Wing, a long time local farmer, to use as their town home. Later Muriel's sister Minx and husband resided in the front part of the home. Upon his and Harry's  death Muriel and Minx used it as their town home. Minx and Muriel had both passed away, when the property became for sale. 


Cliff and Pat Johns purchased it in December of 2006. They were originally going to turn it back into a single family home, but with the uniqueness of all the doors on the east their sons told them it would make a neat Inn. With a great deal of restoration, that brings us to where we are today. There are 4 suites available. Two have fully equipped kitchens, two with mini kitchens, all have private baths, luxury beds and bedding.

Eventually there will be a laundry and recreation area in the walk-out basement. There will also be a picnic party area, and we have an adjacent vacant lot that would make a great place to set up a large party tent for a wedding etc. We are taking reservations now for family reunions, class reunions, weddings, etc. Located in downtown Minneapolis, with the Solomon River, beautiful Markley Park, and local swimming pool with-in walking distance.
