Why Choose Woodland Trails?

Woodland Trails Lodge and Cabin — Nice Places to Stay, With Something to Do.

New, not Old

Completed in 2003, Woodland Trails Lodge near Hinckley, Minnesota was built to be a country inn 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.

Woodland Trails Cabin, built in 1985, was moved to its present location in 2003.  At that time a walk-out lower level with two bedrooms and a bath were added. Also added was a screened porch.  The Cabin, like the Lodge, has been continuously improved since.

Rustic Inn, not Victorian

One guest said, “Woodland Trails Lodge feels like a Montana lodge made very elegant by Sandra’s tasteful decorating.”  (Some like the fact that Sandra’s decorating includes no doilies or teddy bears!)

Located Close to You

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

Something To Do

  • In the Lodge: Great Room with wood-burning fireplace; Entertainment Room with big-screen TV and English billiard table.
  • Out the windows: Birds, deer & other Minnesota wildlife.

Ladies, have no fear! Your man will enjoy the inn as much as you because of the rustic atmosphere and things to do.

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, and now the Lodge and Cabin, as a way to share their land with interesting people.

Things To Do

There is a wide range of things to do during the day such as:

  • Relaxing in the Lodge and Cabin, including enjoying the luxury of a nap after breakfast.
