North Folk Winery

Reviewed By pmatts19 - Phoenix, Arizona

We travelled for 2.5 hours to visit this winery only to find a hand written "Closed for shower" taped over their sign when we arrived. Needless to say, we weren't happy! We've been to other wineries that remained open even while weddings were going on. This event was noted on their website but the hours it was open was also noted - normal hours!
We would have loved to have stopped, however with the lack of concern for customers, we won't be back!

North Ridge Winery

Reviewed By Fix143 - Minnesota

We had purchased a groupon for a wine tasting. We ended up leaving with multiple bottles. We learned a great deal about the wines and the locally sourced fruits that are used, the wild plums in the plum wine are from a nearby property. After sampling many we decided on a few bottles to bring home. The little w sulfite level is great for anyone with sulfite allergies. We will definitely be buying more.

Purple Hawk Country Club

Reviewed By RonJac - Minneapolis, MN

My wife and I played Purple Hawk June 16. The course is about 50 north of Minneapolis on Highway 65. The course has a tradtional layout with no houses located on the course. There is water on (or near) 8 holes but only 1 forced carry (although you can go around that one as well). The sand it the traps is a bit hard and a bit like dirt but still playable. The greens when we played were quite fast and are fairly smooth. There were a few wet spots on the course due to all the rain we have had here this spring. The carts are newer gas powered with no GPS. They have a resturant on-site and the beverage cart came around frequently. We goit our round done is a little over 3 hours.

Purple Hawk is a fun course to play for a fairly reasonable rate. Hit it straight and you will have no issues.

Rebecca Rae's Boutique

Reviewed By LittleTowns - Cambridge, Minnesota

This is a 2 story barn packed full of treasures! Reclaimed - antiques - vintage - handmade - rustics. Lots of furniture and unique home decor items as well as some gift items, jewelry and kitchenware (no clothing). Pricing is reasonable. Staff is friendly and helpful. Due to the 2 stories, it is not all handicap accessible or easy to traverse with a stroller. Outside is a rusty junk area and also a smaller building they call the cottage that also contains vintage items.
The store is open once a month May through December. You'll have to call for dates or check their Facebook page. Hours are always 9-5, when open.
On site, there is also a sawmill that is usually in operation when the boutique is open. Artist wood and other wood types are available for sale as well as milling services.
The boutique is part of a spring (May) and fall (September) tour of other shops in the area (Unique Boutique & Antiques Tour) and also a winter tour (The Holiday Hunter's Market Tour) that runs 1st weekend in November and December.
