My husband brought me here for my birthday. Growing up in Minot, I had always been aware of the Dakotah Rose, but never stepped inside. Now, at 34, I can finally say I had the pleasure of spending the evening here. With that said I must say I regret it took so long to get here! I can promise, once I tell my girlfriends about the warmth, charm and romance that resides in the rooms and hallways of this house, they are all going to make reservations! S. & B.

We have been spoiled forever. We will never wish to stay in a hotel again. The room was so comfortable, and the breakfast was, well there are no words to describe it. They were the best breakfasts I have ever had. This coming from someone who has traveled the world. But most of all is the down to earth and lovely Carol, she is what made our stay so enchanting. Thank you Carol.

Dear Jim and Carol,
Thank you for the pleasant stay and delicious breakfast. We are amazed at how quickly you have recovered from the flood and are able to offer lovely and gracious accommodations. We admire the hard work and dedication it took to make seem as if it hardly happened. We appreciate, too, the reminders of the Heavenly Father and his care.

Thank you for adding a “special touch” to our vacation. It was nice to be treated as individual people instead of one of a swarm at downtown hotels. All the physical aspects of your home are so memorable but the atmosphere created by the thoughtfulness and caring by the hosts made it extra special. Thank you.

Thank you for your gracious hospitality! This has been a wonderful experience with my mother and daughter. We are celebrating my mother’s 85th birthday.

Jim & Carol, Excellent as always. Thank you for a little slice of heaven in Minot.
Jack and I loved staying in the Garden Room for 2 days while we visited a friend in Minot and finished visiting the last of our 50 states. Carol and Jim were attentive when we needed something and were quietly in the background when we didn’t. Breakfast was great, and so was the atmosphere.
L & J, CT
Three wonderful days. We needed this rest, just didn’t know how much.
You are wonderful hosts. We felt so welcomed.
Carol—those awesome meals. Breakfast with ‘strangers’ transforming into instant friendship.
Jim—welcoming committee, historian, butler, the perfect role. You are truly a gentlemen. We were told by other guests that your place was/is one of the very best. Thank you both again.
G & L H
I cannot tell you how much we enjoyed our stay at The Dakotah Rose. The hospitality was fantastic. Jim and Carol made us feel like part of the family. The master Suite and balcony are everything we could have hoped for and so much more. It was a perfect weekend, we will definitely return for the phenomenal breakfast, and evening delights! Thanks again for making this a wonderful experience!
M & D D
Once again, the Dakotah Rose has made a single weekend away feel like a second honeymoon. The service and personality here is priceless. We will be here at least once a year.
Staying here for Valentine’s weekend was just what M & I both needed. With 5 kids and running a business, the Dakotah Rose is a wonderful place to just disappear and relax. We simply had a blast. The both of you and your staff are so fun and charming; I cannot imagine God having you do anything other than this. May God continue to bless you.
T & M
We’ll be back!
Perfect! It is our 30th wedding anniversary and there was no better place to experience that. This place offers rest and a deep sense of peace. Bless you both in your business and your life together in ministry, serving others.
