Great aquatic center, lakes, fishing, rivers, golfing, bowling, cycling, kayaking, our wonderful bakery, and Friday concerts in the park concerts (Pine City).

Rush City – A Great Little Town along I35

We moved to Rush City and opened our Bed and Breakfast about 5 years ago. Time has gone by so fast and we have had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people. When we opened our B and B we had no idea of what to expect but soon discovered Rush City is a great location. We are in the center of many fairs, festivals, historic sites, lakes, great outdoor activities, and events.

Within a short drive we have wineries, a micro-brewery, county fairs, some great wedding venues (Including Rush City’s Creekside Wedding Barn – we have had several brides and grooms spend their wedding nights with us), river boat rides, and water parks. Because of the St. Croix River and multiple lakes, the area hosts great summer outdoor activities like canoeing, kayaking, tubing, biking, hiking, and fishing. The area has great indoor and outdoor golf, a indoor shooting range, and a private outdoor hunting preserve (bring up some of your friends and hunt year round). The area features a wonderful outdoor concert venues with country, rock and roll and blue grass music. We have the Hinckley casino which has concerts and a wide assortment of gambling. Pine City hosts free Friday concerts in the park featuring everything from jazz to blue grass to rock and roll.

Our local restaurants have great food and some have great views of Rush Lake. One restaurant in the area was selected as one of Minnesota’s best for broasted chicken.

Like a bit of history? Visit the Northwest Fur post (a working 1800’s fur post), the Great Hinckley Fire museum which tells the story of the tragic fire that swept through the area. Drive some of the Superior-Port Douglas Military Road, the first road built to connect the cities with Duluth.

Some people come to visit us to just get away and unwind. Rush City is a quiet friendly town. The Inn features 3 acres of land with Rush Creek flowing through it. It is not uncommon to see wildlife like deer or a river otter playing in Rush Creek. We have beautiful flower gardens and our bird feeders attract many colorful varieties of birds.

To sum it all up, the Maple Knoll Inn is a great place to stay, regardless of what you enjoy. The area has something for everyone.

Summer weekends fill fast, so make your reservation, today. We would love to help you make a wonderful lasting memory.

Patio Dining Near Rush City and The Maple Knoll Inn

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!
