Patio Dining Near Rush City and The Maple Knoll Inn

grumpy

I keep hearing about the great patio dinning there is in the Cities. Some of the patios in the Cities are rather nice, but nothing compares to the wonderful patios around Rush City.

Two of our local restaurants have great patio views of Rush Lake. Not only do they have great views, they have great food as well. Our wonderful local patio restaurants include the Grumpy Minnow and Flickabirds. They might have funny names but they are worth the visit. For a patio without lake views, but still great patios, you can visit the Bull Rush Bar and Grill, and the Grant House.

So you can sit in the smog filled Cites paying for expensive meals, enjoying overpriced adult beverages and a view of….the Cities….from one of the Cities patio restaurants OR you can stay at the Inn and have a wonderful dinner at one of our great patio restaurants while enjoying the view of beautiful Rush Lake. No smog and meals/drinks are always very reasonably priced.

Great patio dinning is just one of the many reasons you should book a room with us and enjoy everything the Rush City area has to offer! When can we expect you?

Don’t forget the great patios at our local wineries!

Great Days Start at the Maple Knoll Inn!!

Minnesota summers are so short. 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).

Weekdays are great days to stay at the Inn and venture out to make some great romantic memories with your squeeze. The weather has been great so don’t wait to put in for those days off and book a two night stay at the Inn.

Why Stay at the Maple Knoll Inn?

2015-07-10 00.10.50

Why should you stay at the Inn and not a hotel? I can answer that in two words – Amenities and Atmosphere.

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 for two with dual shower heads. One of the bathroom features a wonderful claw footed tub. We have added a shower to this tub to allow you to soak or shower. The house was built in 1914 and features spacious guest sitting areas such as our large living room, dining room, and second floor sitting room we call our “Sun Room”. Enjoy our large screen porch and huge second floor deck, great for viewing nature or the changing fall colors. Our grounds cover three acres and have many hundred year old maple trees. Rush Creek runs through our property.

Atmosphere – The Inn provides a great setting for romance, relaxation, or to renew relationships. Sit on the deck, sun room, screen porch, or outside and enjoy a cool beverage or glass of wine. 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 night or weekend out, 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, antiquing, biking, cycling, hiking, golf, indoor golf, 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. Comfortable and spacious it is more like home than a overnight travel stop. If you have never stayed at a bread and breakfast, you don’t know what you are missing!

Make your reservation, today. We look forward to seeing you.
