There are so many amazing events at the Xcel Center.
Check back often to learn more about the Corban Manor Inn, the historic Summit Avenue area, and all there is to experience in St. Paul, Minnesota!
Our Beautiful Neighborhood is filled with stunning architecture and fabulous people. With a very short stroll you’ll find yourself at wonderful restaurants and shops.
On your stroll you may see artists painting. Artists, like Rosemary whom we found on Maiden Lane, just steps outside our door at the Inn. Maiden Lane used to be an alley, but as the many of the carriage houses are residences now and/or have flats in them the “alley” is a recognized street-Maiden Lane.
There are so many wonderful things to see and do here from tours of the James Hill Mansion to tours of the Cathedral, great Theaters like the Ordway & Park Square, baseball, biking, long delightful strolls and wonderful restaurants and pubs to relax in. Come stay with us and escape to St Paul. Check out visitstpaul.com for the many, many festivals going on and things to see and do!
We look forward to your stay with us at Corban Manor Inn, it is a luxury setting in a beautiful neighborhood with fabulous restaurants and things to do and see.

St. Paul Visitors, take note that Minnesota has been voted the most “Bike Friendly State in the U.S.” This is due in part to the sheer number of off street bike trails, bike lanes and scenic beauty. St. Paul offers cyclists the chance to explore the full length of Summit Avenue (5 miles) which offers the longest stretch of “intact Victorian Architecture in the U.S.” Spring is a beautiful time to go cruising.
Stay at the newly renovated boutique B&B, the Corban Manor Inn, with secure bike space provided and located just a few doors from Summit Avenue. Head out and peddle to the Mississippi River. Ride past the James J. Hill House (tours available), the Governor’s mansion and the former home of F. Scott Fitzgerald. Cycle to the landmark St. Paul Cathedral which is open for passerby’s to peak inside to marvel at the grandeur of this European styled Cathedral.
If you did not bring a bike, but the spirit of the ride overtakes you, just ask the proprietors at the Corban Manor Inn where to rent bikes, including St. Paul’s bike sharing system. Combine Minneapolis and St. Paul, otherwise known as the Twin Cities, to increase the length of your ride. Consider taking the newly opened biking trail from St. Paul to the quaint river town of historic Stillwater, MN, or ride over to the Como Park area for lake riding and beautiful vistas. Learn more.
As winter is finally coming to an end consider picking up one or two of the Wines we’ve had the chance to try at the University Club. It’s a great way to celebrate the beginning of spring.
The last couple of months and/or for a large part of this winter our Wine club has been wowed by fabulous Wines and food pairings from the Iberian Peninsula.
In February our hosts brought us phenomenal Wines from Portugal. We started off with a couple of Vinho Verde Wines: Twin Vines & Quinta De Raza-always love Vinho Verdes. We progressed into the Reds, with Cabriz, Jose De Sousa and Vale Do Bomfim Douro. Still staying with the Reds, but changing gears a bit with the comparisons we tried Duas Quintas & Alambre Moscatel. In bringing the evening to its climax it was finished with Dueling Ports, both Ruby & Tawny-fabulous!
What amazing fun not only to compare and taste wonderful Wines, but to compare Ports as well.
These Wine are very affordable and went directly on our shopping list, excellent Wines to share with friends. Do try it, you’ll love it!
As February inevitably rolls into March, our hosts in March brought us wonderful Wines and Tapas from Spain.
We started out with a Cava most are familiar with, Freizenet, Cordon Negro, always enjoyable. Starting with the Wines, our white Wine of the evening was delicious, Xarmant Txacolina. The Reds were absolutely fabulous as well and we recommend you trying them. We had the next four in 2 sets of side by side tastings. In the first set we had Marques de Riscal (Rioja Reserva) and Marques de Caceres (Rioja Reserva) and in the second Les Crestes (Priorat) and Les Terrasses (Priorat). All of which were wonderful. It is truly amazing the variety of flavors you can distinguish between two Wines that are from different vineyards even having the same grape & region.
We finished off the evening with an incredibly interesting dessert Wine, Pedro Ximemez. It finished off the evening with panache.
With all of the incredible dessert Wines there are, please finish your evenings with panache!
