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
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!

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.
