Rush City – A Great Little Town along I35

href=”https://mapleknollinn.files.wordpress.com/2018/02/summer.jpg”>

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.

Fall is a great time to enjoy the colors and to spend a little time sipping some local wines.

Book a room at the Inn and enjoy some of the great wineries located close to the Inn. We have many wineries within 30 minutes from the Inn! Visit North Folk, Wild Mountain, James Perry, North Ridge, Winehaven, the Dancing Dragon Fly, or the Chateau. All these great wineries are located close to the Inn.

The fall colors have begun in the Rush City area. According to the DNR peak fall colors occur in our area in mid to late September. Plan a great fall get away and book your room with us. Enjoy wine tasting, take a scenic boat ride on the St. Croix River, take a bike ride, canoe, or kayaking. Use the Inn as your home base to enjoy the fall colors. Rooms have been filling, so make your reservation, today.

There is always something going on close to the Inn.
