Do Something Really Unique!!

Looking for something really unique to do? How about visiting Wings North for some great hunting? Tell your husband and his buddies they can save tons of money by scheduling a hunt a Wings North and staying at the Maple Knoll Inn. Why spend hours driving to South Dakota, staying in cheep uncomfortable hotels, and walking miles without seeing a bird? Wings North offers many acres of hunting space with 12 different hunting areas for a unique and diverse hunting experience. Wings North is located in Pine City, just a few miles north if the Inn. No license is needed, they can provide guides and even dogs. THEY HAVE EVERYTHING to make your hunt special. Check Wings North out on their website: http://www.wingsnorth.org

If the girls don’t want or like to hunt, maybe they would like to stay behind at the Inn and enjoy “catching up” or maybe they would like to visit some of our local wineries.

Wings North is a great place to shoot clay targets! This place has everything!!

We would love to help you plan a great weekend with us. Contact us today!

Motorcycles and Rush City Go Together!

Rush City is located on Old Highway 61. Before I35 was built, 61 was the main artery between New Orleans and Thunder bay, Canada. Currently, each weekend, hundreds of motorcycles cruise highway 61 past the Inn.

If you cycle, the Inn is a great place to use as your “home-base”. Cruise to Rush City, enjoy a great nights stay, relax on our deck or on our front porch, get up refreshed and enjoy the rest of your scenic ride along Old Highway 61.

The really cool thing about Rush City is we are the home to one of the nations largest cycle, snowmobile and ATV after-market parts and accessories suppliers. Dennis Kirk has been the leader in power sports aftermarket parts and accessories since 1969, with over 150,000 unique items in stock. Dennis Kirk is located just a few short blocks from the Inn.

Stay at the Inn and wander down to Dennis Kirk’s showroom. You can review the latest catalog and save shipping by picking up that part or accessory. Check out Dennis Kirk on line at – https://www.denniskirk.com/.

There is so much going on around the Inn.

When will you stay with us?

Hay Days 2017 – Coming Soon!!

The 51th anniversary of Hay Days is coming to North Branch – September 9 and 10. According to the local sheriffs office the event attracts over 40,000 people! For those of you who don’t know how big Hay Days is. The event includes 300-plus vendor booths, 2100 swapper booths and 32 food vendor booths. Imagine 2100 swapper booths and 300 vendor booths all devoted to everything snowmobiling.

Aside from all the shopping, Hay Days is loaded with nonstop spectator events. The snowmobile drag race has always been a crowd pleaser. The Sno Barons 145-acre location includes a freestyle course where you could watch all the snowmobile, dirt bike and quad freestyle action.

Hay Days is everything snowmobiles, racing, swap meet and vendors offering the latest and greatest for snowmobiles.

The bad new is the hotels, motels and camp grounds are booking already. Last year folks told us that there were no rooms for 100 miles around the event.

The good news is, as of today, the Maple Knoll Inn in Rush City still has rooms available for the weekend.

Our rooms are bound to fill, so book yours today!
