Rush City – A Great Little Town along I35


We moved to Rush City and opened our Bed and Breakfast about 5 years ago. Time has gone by so fast and we have had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people. When we opened our B and B we had no idea of what to expect but soon discovered Rush City is a great location. We are in the center of many fairs, festivals, historic sites, lakes, great outdoor activities, and events.

Within a short drive we have wineries, a micro-brewery, county fairs, some great wedding venues (Including Rush City’s Creekside Wedding Barn – we have had several brides and grooms spend their wedding nights with us), river boat rides, and water parks. Because of the St. Croix River and multiple lakes, the area hosts great summer outdoor activities like canoeing, kayaking, tubing, biking, hiking, and fishing. The area has great indoor and outdoor golf, a indoor shooting range, and a private outdoor hunting preserve (bring up some of your friends and hunt year round). The area features a wonderful outdoor concert venues with country, rock and roll and blue grass music. We have the Hinckley casino which has concerts and a wide assortment of gambling. Pine City hosts free Friday concerts in the park featuring everything from jazz to blue grass to rock and roll.

Our local restaurants have great food and some have great views of Rush Lake. One restaurant in the area was selected as one of Minnesota’s best for broasted chicken.

Like a bit of history? Visit the Northwest Fur post (a working 1800’s fur post), the Great Hinckley Fire museum which tells the story of the tragic fire that swept through the area. Drive some of the Superior-Port Douglas Military Road, the first road built to connect the cities with Duluth.

Some people come to visit us to just get away and unwind. Rush City is a quiet friendly town. The Inn features 3 acres of land with Rush Creek flowing through it. It is not uncommon to see wildlife like deer or a river otter playing in Rush Creek. We have beautiful flower gardens and our bird feeders attract many colorful varieties of birds.

To sum it all up, the Maple Knoll Inn is a great place to stay, regardless of what you enjoy. The area has something for everyone.

Summer weekends fill fast, so make your reservation, today. We would love to help you make a wonderful lasting memory.

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!

Staying in the Area Just Got Harder



Summer is always busy around the area. We have concerts in Hinckley, concerts in Pine City, theater in St. Croix Falls, fishing, boating, golfing, festivals, wine tasting, Hay Days, and now we have a new wedding barn that is opening soon in Rush City – http://www.creeksidefarmweddingsevents.com/. This wonderful wedding barn will bring many potential guests to our area.

The communities around Rush City have limited number of hotels, motels and B & B’s. In the past, with the exception of Hay Days, getting a room in the areas has not been a major problem.

This year, with the new wedding barn and some great concerts, the need for rooms is rising while at the same time the availability of rooms is shrinking. The recent closure of a 20 room hotel in the area has already impacted peoples ability to locate a room. We have already filled up for several weekends this summer and had to turn way guests.

So how do you insure you get a room for a weekend? Make your reservation, NOW!. To insure that they get a room, some of our guests are already booking out rooms into 2017!

We only have three guest rooms, so when there are events in the area we tend to fill up fast. If you plan on attending an event or just coming to the area to enjoy everything Rush City has to offer, make your reservation today.

There is always something happening around the Inn. Make your reservation, today, to insure you can enjoy it.
