Thorwood Bed & Breakfast Hotel Review: The fine river town of Hastings is proud of this 1880 treasure. The inn is listed on the towns local historic registry, as well as on the National Register of Historic Sites. It is just 25 miles from the Twin Cities and yet resides in a pretty, natural setting. Although Hastings is best known for its location on the Mississippi, it is also notably framed by bluffs that create a cliff for a spectacular waterfall. The innkeepers and staff strive to make your stay memorable. Indulgences include cozy reading retreats, evening snacks and a crackling fireplace. The private baths have oversized showers, old-fashioned claw-foot tubs or double Pearl whirlpools---some even have all three, and all boast fluffy towels the size of sheets. Air conditioning is a bonus during hot Midwest summers. Breakfast is generous and hearty.
