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!

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.

Great Place for Business Travelers

travel

Hotels often advertise that they business traveler “friendly,” when in fact they really are not. Hotels often offer small cramped rooms with limited space for the business traveler to spread out and do their work. Who can forget the nights of kids running up and down the halls making quite a racket.

The Maple Knoll Inn is a great place for business travelers. Our weekends are usually busy, but you can usually “snag” a room most any weekdays We get a fair number of business travelers staying at the Inn. They appreciate the spacious common areas’ the Inn has to offer. Why stay cooped up in a small room at a hotel when you can spread out in our spacious living room, dining room, sun room, deck or screen porch. Take advantage of our free WiFi while enjoying a cup of coffee or tea in our quiet stress free environment. Do your work in the comfort of the Inn. Oh and no noisy kids running up and down the halls!

Travel is stressful enough! Where you stay the night should be a quiet relaxing haven.

In the area for business? How about staying with us?
