Spring has sprung!

Or is trying at least. It hit 50 degrees today for the first time in nearly four months and the snow is melting. Soon we’ll be offering breakfast on the patio again amongst the flowers.

Spring means walking and enjoying the neighborhood. We recommend a leisurely stroll down Summit Avenue with its many historic homes. Here’s a walking tour from the Minnesota Historical Society that you could pull up on your phone. It includes informational videos.

Breakfast on the Patio

At Cathedral Hill, we spend a lot of time thinking about how to make our guests comfortable.  Delicious food and clean, comfortable rooms are a given.  We try to go above and beyond the basics.  We put the patio in the “above and beyond” category – assuming the weather permits (and it usually does in the summer!) we would love to serve your breakfast on the patio.

This is the whimsical fountain, framed by lots and lots of annuals in baskets and in planters:

This is a view from the west end of the backyard looking east.  The patio and the tables are at the far end of the picture:

We can’t wait to see you and share our beautiful backyard with you.  Give us a call and we’ll schedule your stay!

Another Neighborhood Gem

What a beautiful week it was here in St. Paul, Minnesota!  Warm and sunny most of the week, then a little rain today – all the better to water our lawn and gorgeous patio flowers.

Here at Cathedral Hill we love recommending local businesses, especially for dining!  The Cheeky Monkey Deli is a warm, welcoming casual spot for a great lunch or dinner bite (don’t forget – you’re having breakfast with us!).  We hear the meatloaf sandwich is divine.

Give us a call and check our availability.  We would love to welcome you to St. Paul and help you find your way around the city.  We’ll set you up with a great breakfast and a wonderful place to stay, then set you loose in historic Cathedral Hill!  We’ll say it again – we can’t wait to see you!

May We Recommend…

Cathedral Hill Bed and Breakfast is within walking distance of some wonderful restaurants. This is the first in a series of posts describing where you can stroll to find a delightful bite to eat the next time you stay with us.

Start big, is our motto, and so this review starts with a great restaurant that we recommend all the time to our guests.  W.A. Frost and Company has it all – wonderful food, great ambience, an outstanding wine list, and the best patio dining, hands down, in the area. W.A. Frost is five blocks from Cathedral Hill, so come stay with us, and don’t forget to make your patio reservation for a memorable dinner.

We’ll say it again – we can’t wait to see you!

Things You Might See at Cathedral Hill

Cathedral Hill Bed and Breakfast is located in a beautiful 1896 Victorian home with a lovely formal living room (where you might see a statute of a basset hound, one of our favorite dog breeds) and a back deck with a breakfast table boasting seasonal flowers. The hanging basket of gerbera daisies adorns the back door. We are looking forward to greeting you this fine May. Maybe it is because we are located in Minnesota – we just relish springtime.

Come and see us – we can’t wait to meet you!

Spring in St. Paul

Here at Cathedral Hill we are excited to welcome spring.  We have flowers on the deck and a beautiful patio for you to enjoy while you eat your breakfast.

This weekend will be an exciting one in St. Paul.  The Como Zoo Japanese Garden and Cafesjian’s Carousel open on Saturday.   Como Zoo is a short drive from Cathedral Hill; the Japanese Garden is beautiful and the Carousel is fun for kids and adults alike.

We can’t wait to see you!

Snow on the way and we are all decorated for the Holidays

The national weather forecast says we are about to get a blizzard.   That is not the best news for business, but it surely goes well with holiday decorations.  We have our enormous wreath decorating the front of the house.  We have our Christmas tree, our holiday village, our creche and all manner of lights.  Come see us!

Hush Puppies or Corn Fritters

This may bring a comment!  Our current guest who used to live in the south let me know that what we call corn fritters up here are known as hush puppies in the south.  Hush puppies are about an inch thick, deep fried and rolled in powdered sugar.  Corn fritters are shaped like pancakes and are abouit 1/2 inch thick.  We serve our fritters with honey.

Any comments?

Adding a comment

Since we only received one comment ( a nice cup of hot chocolate would be nice)  so far,  I am thinking my kind readers do not know how to leave a comment.  Here is how.  Scroll down to the break between posts and then you will notice in tiny writing, between the two lines a place where it says “Leave a comment”.  Try it!  We value your ideas for hospitality on a cold winter night.  Just click on the area between the two lines and you will be brought to a comment box where you can type in your response.  Thanks!
