Joining other Minnesota Bed & Breakfasts in becoming leaders in the lodging industry,
Nicolin Mansion has implemented Green Policies.

  • Adaptive reuse of our historic building
  • Non-smoking rooms free of smoke pollution
  • Recycled building materials – such as courtyard structures built from the original basement floor
  • Major household appliances are Energy Star rated
  • Upgraded, energy efficient boiler with thermostatically controlled radiators
  • New energy efficient windows and storm windows
  • Use of low energy light bulbs wherever possible
  • Non-disposable glasses, mugs, plates & flatware
  • Filtered hot and cold water in dining room guest kitchen rather than individual plastic water bottles
  • Bulk shampoo, conditioner, bath salts and lotion reducing packaging and landfill impact
  • Soap made from natural ingredients right here at the inn – take it home with you and use the rest
  • Sheet & Towel reuse program for multiple night stays
  • For guests staying more than one night, sheets are changed after the third night. Just ask your innkeeper if you would like them changed more often.
  • For guests staying more than one night, fresh towels are not brought in daily. A towel on the rack means “I will use again”; A towel on the floor means “Please exchange”
