'The Special Occasion Destination': You Have to Experience Winter at the Lake Elmo Inn
Monday, December 02, 2019
The Lake Elmo Inn has been serving up holiday traditions for more than 30 years.
When you see a little child come in, and their eyes go up to the ceiling in awe—that says Christmas every single time, according to John Schiltz, owner and chef at Lake Elmo Inn.
Since 1983, he and his staff have created a year-round dining experience that’s unlike others in the Twin Cities. A far cry from the days Schiltz lived upstairs and enlisted his regulars to help decorate, the restaurant has become a regional destination. And at Christmas, he and his wife and catering director Christine lead a team that creates a little holiday magic right next door to Woodbury.
