Guestbook comments from the owner
Recently, my family and I were in town for a nearby wedding and we stayed at the NuWray. We loved our rooms - fabulously comfortable beds, beautiful antiques, spacious baths - and were so welcomed by the owners. I last visited in the mid-1960s and it was wonderful to have this return visit confirm that the NuWray is one of the best in the country. Don't miss it!

Comfortable and rustic

  • 5 of 5
This was a great place to stay. My family holds a reunion once every other year, and our habit is to find some large home or inn that we can rent out wholesale. This year we chose Nu Wray Inn, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It has a great kitchen for feeding large groups of people, and a fantastic garden outside. The rooms are comfortable, and there's a lot of space to gather and talk as a group.

There's one other bit that's worth mentioning. My last morning there, and I was showing and packing up to fly back to Seattle, I accidentally left my wedding ring behind. I frantically emailed Bob and Lisa, and they quickly found the ring and mailed it back to me. I'm incredibly grateful to them for that.

Fantastic Family Reunion!!!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Bob and Lisa for a great week at the historic Nu Wray Inn! We had thirty family members for a Christmas family reunion. The inn is located right in the heart of downtown Burnsville. There are cute little shops and restaurants within walking distance.

The house was perfect in every way for our family and we loved having it all to ourselves. There were plenty of bedrooms so we could each have our own space. The rooms are nicely decorated with comfortable beds. There were several bedrooms on the main floor so my 94 year old mother-in-law didn't have to climb stairs.

We loved the dining room with enough seating so we could all eat together. When we weren't eating in the dining room we used it as a game room and had several games going on at the same time. The commercial kitchen was large enough to have plenty of cooks in the kitchen at the same time with a huge refrigerator and freezer. We had a fire going the entire time in the living room and loved hanging out there too...a great place to read or have a quiet conversation.

Bob and Lisa were very helpful in answering our many questions before our arrival. Bob was waiting to welcome us when we arrived to give us a tour of the house and instructions on how things worked. All in all I would highly recommend the Nu Wray Inn. It was perfect for our family get together.

Rat Pack Themed Autum Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5
Where to start....Bob and Lisa made us feel very comfortable with the process in planning our wedding and using a facility that was otherwise foreign to us. As with any bride, we have a vision of what our special day is to look like. Without having the space readily at hand, I felt that the planning preparation would be tricky with some aspects, which meant leaving some design elements to the day of the wedding. However, they graciously allowed us plenty of opportunities prior to the wedding to take as many pictures of the inn so we had a good idea of what could be done in terms of setting the stage. Upon check in, they made us feel at ease with kick starting the weekend celetration, which included the ktichen operation, fireplace preparation, and use of facilities, and made us feel as if it were our home.

The pictures online are great to view, but they do not do the inn justice...that's how impressed we were with each visit prior to the wedding and even more so upon check in. It was already beautifully decorated, which left us with only contending with the main reception area (dinning room and our cocktail room) to do as we planned. The inn was a picture perfect place for our themed wedding from the lighting (dimmers) down to the decor. With the satelite radio and sound system available, Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra could be heard throughout the main level.

Just to name a few of our favorite things: the grand fireplace made an awesome backdrop for our wedding ceremony, which also proved to be a favorite social gathering spot, which was very cozy with the fire roaring. The 2nd floor sitting area was another favored social area. The inn's location on the town square is the perfect hub for taking a stroll to pass time, catch a quick delicious bite to eat, or shop for something eclectic. My favorite shopping spot by far is Menagerie Merchantile, a great place to buy something old or something new.

We received nothing but compliments on a place well chosen for such an event. Everyone was very pleased with their room accommodations and remarked how beautiful the inn was. We would highly recommend the Nu Wray to anyone looking for a place to relax and enjoy their surroundings.

Thanks to Bob and Lisa for such a wonderful, lasting memory!

Best Family Reunion Ever

  • 5 of 5
The spacious and cozy front porch of the NuWray Inn served as a gathering place as our large extended family spent a week together. From there, everyone strolled through the Burnsville village area, visited the numerous interesting shops, played on the beautiful Town Square, and explored the area. Our family likes to cook together, so the huge kitchen was great fun. Eating together is also important to us, so the large dining room seated all of us and made meals even more special than usual. All the bedrooms were well-appointed and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay at the NuWray very much. We're still talking about the luxury of having a huge porch with rocking chairs for everyone!

Perfect wedding weekend!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic time at Nu Wray for our wedding! Bob and Lisa were very helpful and responsive to our questions leading up to the event, and our friends and family were blown away by the Inn and surroundings. My mom said she never had more fun at a wedding. My friend who officiated the wedding remarked how special it was that most of the crowd came to the Inn as strangers and left as friends after the few days we are able to spend together.

The time passed way too quickly. Loved the mountains and the rustic feel of the area. If only we could find a way to repeat the event every few years!

Wonderful gathering location!

  • 5 of 5
My fiance and I rented the Nu Wray for our wedding - the Inn is the perfect set up for everyone to have their own space and the grounds were great for the outdoor wedding and for the kids to run around and play in. We especially enjoyed the massive kitchen, which was key in preparing food army-style for so many people. It was also great that the Inn is conveniently located around many top area attractions and outdoor adventures. Bob and Lisa were great to work with and we'd definitely be back!
