Another perfect stay!
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

Very homey!
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.
