Another perfect stay!
We’ve stayed at the Maple Knoll Inn for the last 3 years after riding our bicycles in the MS150. We love the well appointed rooms, the 2nd floor deck with peaceful views & the breakfast is always amazing! We’ve already booked a room for next year!

Great B & B
We stayed at the Inn when we attended a wedding in the area.
A wonderful place with 3 great rooms and baths and spotlessly clean.
It had a great sitting area upstairs with an outside deck right off that. We also had complete use of the rest of the downstairs area that wasn’t the owners private spot.
We had a fabulous multi course breakfast the next morning and enjoyable conversation with the owners learning about the history of the town

Very homey!
We had a wonderful stay at the Maple Knoll Inn! Our hosts were very hospitable and made us feel welcome in their home. It was a great getaway. We spent our days
exploring but was so comfortable coming back at night and watching a movie, playing a game or relaxing to music. Breakfast was delicious each morning and exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend visiting! Thank you for a wonderful stay!

If your travels take you to Rush City or surrounding areas, we hope you will consider staying with us.

We pride ourselves in offering each and every guest a wonderful experience. WE hope to see you soon!

Fall Is Coming Soon!


How do you plan to enjoy this fall? For a start, how about booking a Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at the Maple Knoll Inn and then set out on an adventure. This time of year Taylors Falls and St. Croix Falls are the place to visit. Take a paddle boat ride down the St. Croix River. Boat rides leave Taylors falls at 11, 1 and 3, daily. Rides are 80 minutes long and offer a very scenic look at the beauty of the river. If your more adventurist, stop at Interstate Part (MN) and rent a canoe or kayak for a 3 hour paddle down the river. At the end point they will pick you up and bring you back to your car. After that visit Schoony’s Malt Shop in downtown Taylors Falls. Great malts and hard ice cream. Drive over to St. Croix Falls and enjoy the quaint and fun shops. Make your way to the north end of town for a great view of the dam. Next, drive to the Dancing Dragonfly winery, just up the hill from St. Croix Falls, and enjoy some wine tasting. For dinner stop at the Dallas House and enjoy a great meal.

There is so much to do and close to the Inn. Contact us for available dates and we can help you plan you scenic adventure. Make a memory for you and your squeeze. Contact us today for a great get away!

Our stay here was great. It was so warm and inviting. Thank you for helping us renew our vows it meant a lot to us on our journey forward. Your home and hospitality were wonderful. Food was great. Hope to return soon. Rich and Deb

It was wonderful to stay in my old bedroom again! Even though the furniture was not the same, it really did feel like home. Forty years is a long time to be away. But you have been so careful to keep the time period the same. – Lee

What an absolutely peaceful weekend! You made Dave’s 59th birthday so special. Thank you Ruth for journeying off on an antique adventure with me, a profitable one at that. We are thrilled to have found a hidden treasure in your B&B and even more thrilled to have found new friends. – David and Kelly.
