Woodland Trails B & B—A Nice Place to Stay, With Something to Do.

New, not Old

Completed in 2003, Woodland Trails, a Minnesota Country Inn, was built to be a bed and breakfast with your comfort in mind. The building has all the modern construction elements, like sound-proofing, spacious guest rooms and fine common areas for guests’ use.

Rustic Inn, not Victorian

One guest said, “Woodland Trails feels like a Montana lodge made very elegant by Sandra’s tasteful decorating.”

Located Close to You

Located on the Wisconsin border between Hinckley Minnesota & Danbury Wisconsin, our inn is less than two hours from the Twin Cities, St. Cloud and Eau Claire WI and just over an hour from Duluth/Superior.

Men enjoy us too!

Ladies, have no fear! Your man will enjoy the inn as much as you because of the rustic atmosphere and things to do. One fellow, who was here with his wife celebrating their 1st anniversary said while landing a nice bass, “Honey, you couldn’t have made a better choice!”

The personal attention of John & Sandra

John and Sandra O’Reilly spent their working careers operating Plunkett’s Pest Control, a regional pest control service company based in the Twin Cities. When their daughter, Stacy, assumed leadership of the company in 2003, John and Sandra started their second career, as innkeepers at their newly built bed and breakfast. Located on 500 acres of Pine County woodland they have owned since the 1980s, the O’Reilly’s see the B & B as a way to meet and share their land with interesting people.

Your co-hosts are two black Labs, crossed with who-knows-what, named Lucky and Lady. They made their way to the inn from the Ozark National Forest in Arkansas through a heartwarming chain of events. For their full story, click here.

Born in about June, 2005, Lucky & Lady have very agreeable personalities. They would love to accompany you on a walk down our woodland trails and any route you choose will be just fine with them. While they are still undergoing basic training, both Lucky and Lady know enough to respond to “come” for those who like dogs and “go away” for those who do not.
