Wow! What Great Fall Weather!

Such great fall weather! Nice warm days and cool nights. This is great weather to enjoy everything that happening in our area. This weekend enjoy a great boutique happening all weekend in Rush City. Come to Rush City and follow the signs. Family Pathways in North Branch is having it’s “Mistletoe Mania” featuring the sale of Christmas Home Decor.

Over the next few weekends take advantage of the great weather and book a room at the Maple Knoll Inn and relax. Do some biking or hiking on some of the many trails in the area. When you stay with us we can help you plan a great hiking/biking weekend. We have State and County trail maps.

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.

Fall is a great time to get out and enjoy renewing friendships, renew relationships, have a romantic rendezvous and everything the area has to offer.

Your room is ready. When can we expect you?

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!

Share Your Story With Us!

We always love hearing from our guests. Some of them choose to post something about their stay on line – Trip Advisory or Face Book – and some take advantage of the guest book we leave in the room. Here are just a few recent comments:

Thanks for sharing your early 20th century and lovely home. What a gem for a perfect B & B. – Judy

Thank you for the wonderful peaceful stay. Wish we would have had more time to enjoy the surroundings. – Mary and Joe

Thank you for a lovely stay! We love seeing you and the accommodations and breakfast was superb! – Bob & Bylinda

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.

It is away’s so nice to talk with our guests. We have had the opportunity to meet people from around the world and from all over the US. Each person has their own story to tell and we so enjoy hearing them.

There is a HUGE Difference Between the Maple Knoll Inn and a Hotel!!

There are some very nice motel/hotels, but if you stay at a B and B you get so much more than a motel/hotel.

Each B and B offers a unique experience including some great amenities and a great atmosphere. At the Maple Knoll Inn we offer the following:

The House – Built in 1914 and features original hardwood floors and wooden built-in china cabinets and book cases. We have worked hard to keep the look and feel of the period of the house, including push button light switches, tiled bathrooms, and antique furnishings through out the house. In our dinning room we serve our guests breakfast on fine china and use antique glassware and “real” silverware. The house and grounds have a character all there own. Located on 3 nicely landscaped acres filled with mature oak and maple trees, it is a wonderful location. The home was once the home of an area doctor. The house is still known as the Doc Halpin House, to local residents.

Amenities – We have three beautifully appointed rooms each with their own personal style. Each room has a queen size bed. We use only high quality linens. We supply plush robes you can use during your stay. Each bedroom has it’s own private bathroom with wonderful soft plush towels. Two of the bathrooms feature large tiled over-sized showers with dual shower heads. One of the bathrooms features a wonderful claw footed tub with a shower. Whenever possible, we feature organic food and coffee. The house features spacious guest sitting areas such as our large living room, dining room, and second floor sitting room we call our “Sun Room”. Rush Creek runs through our property. In warm weather, use our screen porch or large second floor deck. We offer a wonderful continental breakfast during the week. The continental breakfast is served in our dining, no standing in line to get at table or food. You eat off real china with real antique silverware. On the weekends we offer a full breakfast. Consisting of one of our great signature dishes.

Atmosphere – The Inn provides a great setting for romance, relaxation, or to renew your relationships. Relax in our living room or sun room. After dark, enjoy what you can’t see in the city – the stars. The sky is beautiful away from the city lights. The Inn is great for a girls weekend, a team building event, or themed weekend, such as our Murder Mystery event or scrap-booking/quilting weekend. Play a game (we have many to choose from) watch a movie, read a book or search the web on our free WiFi. The Inn is a great place to use as a “jumping off point” to explore and enjoy the many things to do and see in the area – fishing, boating, kayaking, wine tasting, biking, cycling, hiking, golf, indoor golf, antiquing, thrift store/outlet store shopping, sight-seeing or enjoying one of the many festivals and fairs in the area. Before leaving each morning treat yourself to one of our sensational breakfasts.

The Inn has so much more to offer than a hotel or motel. No noisy kids running up and down the halls! Comfortable and spacious it is more like home than a overnight travel stop. If you have never stayed at a bed and breakfast, you don’t know what you are missing!

Weekend dates are filling fast so make your reservation, today. We look forward to seeing you.
