established in 2013
The Vintage Inn Bed and Breakfast was founded in 2013 in Redwood Falls, Minnesota.
Our building was originally a photography studio that has been meticulously renovated to house three beautiful en-suite guest rooms. The original vintage charm of the bed & breakfast shows through in its high ceilings and beautiful architectural details.
The original photography studio was called Scenic City Studio and was opened in 1911. It was owned and operated by Hiram and Effie Thorp, who ran their photography business from a car before opening their studio. In 1919 they built the current version of our building.
After the Thorps, the studio became Costain Studios and was run by Keith Costain. And following Costain Studios, it became the Williams Studio and was open until the early 1980s. It then became home to a cable TV company for several years. It also has housed a gift shop, a cell phone store, a prior B&B, and was a private home.
We hope to see you soon! Amber- Innkeeper
