Warmer Weather!! Time to Start Thinking About Summer!


Warmer weather over the next few weeks makes me think about summer. It won’t be long and summer will be here. Weekends full of activities! Now is the time to start planning what you will be doing this summer!

Last summer most every weekend was filled at the Inn and we expect this year will be just as busy. There are so many activities in the area and many activities happen the same weekend. With limited numbers of hotels rooms in the areas, you need to book your room TODAY!!

A few of the events coming to the area this summer are are concerts at the Hinckley Grand Casino. Not all acts have been booked, but here are a few that have been booked – Polka Fest – May 19 – 20, Alice Cooper – June 8, and KISS – July 15.

Book your weekend stay, today! There is ALWAYS something happening near the Inn.



Looking for a fun filled weekend? How about participating in a murder mystery? The murder mystery requires at lease two couples (having three couple would be great). Talk to your friends and book a stay at the Maple Knoll Inn in Rush City, Minnesota. Join us for a fun filled evening trying to solve a great “who done it”! Book your room and we will send you information about your role and background information about this interactive murder.

The year is 1928. The place Chicago’s S.P. Keasy’s Place. Each Visitor is assigned a role. Each player gets a clue manual and information about their character. Help solve the crime but remember you may be the one who done it!

Remember – After all, as long as nobody’s gettin’ hurt, what is really wrong with a little crime now and then.

Summer Seems So Far Away


It is the beginning of February and the temp outside is -2. Right now summer seems so far away.

You may plans for this summer. You feel like you have plenty of time to book a room for the events you will be attending. That may seem true, but the fact is due to the limited number of rooms available in the area, rooms may not be available if you wait to book one.

Rush City is a hub of activity. The new Creekside Wedding barn and event center is booked out for most weekends this summer, so if you are attending a wedding and want a room, NOW is the time to book your room. If you are attending a re-union, any of the many festivals happening in the area, or just want to get away….DO NOT WAIT! Weekends are booking fast!

Don’t be disappointed by not being able to find lodging this summer.

Summer is just around the corner!

Christmas is Over and Valentines Day is Just Around the Corner!!


I know Christmas has just passed and you are feeling relaxed, but Valentines Day is only about a month away!

Oh No!! What do I give her/him? I always stress out about what to do for Valentines Day!!

Stress no longer! For less than the price of a dozen roses, you and your significant other can have a relaxing romantic night at the Inn. We still have rooms available for Valentines Day which is on a Tuesday this year. If getting away during the week doesn’t work, we also have rooms available for the weekend before (Feb 11 – Sat) or the weekend after (Feb 18 – Sat).

Sent the kids to grandma’s and get way with your honey. Relax, drink a celebration bottle of bubbly, and enjoy a relaxing night at the Inn. Enjoy a great night sleep in on one of our comfortable 4 poster beds. Sleep in and enjoy a great breakfast in the morning.

Make a memory! The winter has been cold, but you can heat things up at the Inn.

We expect the weekend will fill fast so make your reservations today. Go to our website and fill in a reservation form. http://www.mapleknollinn.com


Wild Mountain Snow Tubing


I have heard folks tell me, “I don’t like snowmobiling or skiing. What else can I do in the snow?”

If you have a need for speed and fun, try snow tubing. Wild Mountain, located close to the Inn, offers “Wild Chutes Snow Tubing”. For a nominal fee, get a tube, get a lift to the top of the slope, and enjoy hours of snow tubing fun!

Snow tubing is open Sat 11 am to 9 pm and Sun noon to pm. Book a room with us, drive the short distance to Wild Mountain, snow tube, return and enjoy a relaxing night at the Inn.

Does Quality Matter to You?

Aren’t all bed and breakfast’s the same? Most B and B’s are unique and each offers a different experience. Some, like the Maple Knoll Inn, are in historic homes, some are in unique structures like a light house or rail car. Not all B and B’s are members of the Minnesota Bed and Breakfast Association. The Association sets high standards and inspects members to insure those standards are met.

The Inn is a proud member of the Minnesota Bed and Breakfast Association. We work hard to insure that we meet and exceed the Association’s high standards.

It is our desire to make sure EVERY guest’s stay is one that will be memorable. We have hosted guests from around the area, around the country, and around the world.

Book a stay with us and let us have the opportunity to turn your stay into a really great experience.

We can’t wait for you to stay with us!
