If your not into hiking or biking why not visit one of our local wineries. Many of the wineries have fall music or activities. Enjoy one of their great wine tastings while sitting by a warm fire. Invite your friends to use the help you enjoy the experience. Take the short drive to Burnett Dairy and Cheese Store, Burnett, Wisconsin. Enjoy some of their fresh cheese or ice cream. Take a ride on the St. Croix River on a paddle boat, visit the Hinckley Fire Museum, or (if you feel lucky) visit the Grand Casino Hinckley.

Great Place for Business Travelers

travel

Hotels often advertise that they business traveler “friendly,” when in fact they really are not. Hotels often offer small cramped rooms with limited space for the business traveler to spread out and do their work. Who can forget the nights of kids running up and down the halls making quite a racket.

The Maple Knoll Inn is a great place for business travelers. Our weekends are usually busy, but you can usually “snag” a room most any weekdays We get a fair number of business travelers staying at the Inn. They appreciate the spacious common areas’ the Inn has to offer. Why stay cooped up in a small room at a hotel when you can spread out in our spacious living room, dining room, sun room, deck or screen porch. Take advantage of our free WiFi while enjoying a cup of coffee or tea in our quiet stress free environment. Do your work in the comfort of the Inn. Oh and no noisy kids running up and down the halls!

Travel is stressful enough! Where you stay the night should be a quiet relaxing haven.

In the area for business? How about staying with us?

There is still time!!

You still have time to get your squeeze a great Mothers Day gift – a stay at the Maple Knoll Inn! We still have rooms available on Mothers Day weekend – May 12th and 13th.

Summer is Coming and Will be on Us SOON!!

Minnesota summers are so short and this years may be shorter. You try to do something on the weekend but everything is either booked or so crowded you don’t enjoy it. What is a person to do??

Do you realize that most things you like to do on the weekend you can do on a weekday?? If you do it on a weekday you will avoid the traffic, crowds, and most things aren’t booked!

Take a few day off of work. Book a stay at the Maple Knoll Inn and enjoy weekday events and things to do around the area. Stay at the Inn on a weeknight, go out your first night for a great meal at one of our local restaurants. The Grumpy Minnow has great food, adult beverages, and a super outside patio with a wonderful view of Rush Lake. If it rains, stay inside and enjoy the view through one of their patio windows, Return to the Inn and hang out on our huge second floor deck. Relax, watch the many birds who visit out feeders, and enjoy your evening.

Wake up late the next morning and take the short drive to Taylors Falls. Take a boat ride on the St. Croix River, do some rock climbing and trail walking, have lunch at the Drive In and Ice Cream at Schoony’s Ice Cream Shop.

The Drive Inn is a drive up, stay in your car, 50’s style drive in. It has great burgers and wonderful root beer. They have been featured in many magazines/papers and is the place to visit. They even have car hops to wait on you in your car. The car hops place a tray with your food on your car window! Schoony’s ice cream is located in downtown Taylors falls and has great hard ice cream in a host of flavors! For your evening meal take the short drive to Grandy and eat some of the best boasted chicken in Minnesota at the Brass Rail. The Brass Rail has been featured as one of the best boasted chicken restaurants in the state.

For a change of pace you could mix in a visit to one of our many local wineries, do some shooting at the Bulls Eye gun range, visit one of our museums like the Great Hinckley Fire Museum, or play a round of golf at the Bull Rush Golf Course (if it rains, try out one of their state-of-the-art indoor golf simulators).
