Country Inn: New owner, new rooms, new signs
With a new owner and a longtime manager working together, Country Inn of Two Harbors has been renovated and updated.
Bakke, who has been in the hotel business since 1983, bought the hotel in April and got to work immediately, finishing renovations by June.
Country Inn of Two Harbors is independently owned and not affiliated with Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, which gives Bakke free reign. He was able to create his own vision for the inn. He said the design of the new sign is meant to mimic the colors of the outdoors. He also worked with the Minnesota Historical Society and the Library of Congress to grace the property, including every room, with framed vintage black-and-white photos from Two Harbor’s past.
