It will never fail you.” The pace that life goes at today can leave us spinning and exhausted. If you are in need of respite and a time to recharge, we would love to have you come for a stay at our gorgeous bed and breakfast. Surrounded by nature and beauty, you can find true peace and quiet or enjoy the many places to explore nearby. The St. Croix River is great for canoeing and fishing for those looking for some outdoor adventure.

Just pure nature…no traffic…no noise…no smog…no hectic rat race. Our country inn in Hinckley, Minnesota offers guests a beautiful B&B and property with all of the modern amenities to feel comfortable and the privacy you need to relax and unwind. We have guests who return year after year simply because our home allows folks to reconnect with each other, celebrate special occasions, and enjoy the scenery that only a country inn can provide. Guests enjoy hiking and biking in the summer and others enjoy trekking over to the St. Croix River for some fishing and canoeing.

Pardun’s Canoe Rental is a local company that can help you customize a trip to fit your needs. They offer several day trips ranging from 1-4 hours in length with the choice of using canoes or kayaks. Pricing for trips varies depending on how many boats are required and individual canoes/kayaks for personal use are $35 per day.

Now if you are one for casting a line and fishing for the day, there are plenty of spots to try near our B&B. In addition to the St. Croix River, Mille Lacs Lake is also a great spot, known for muskie and smallmouth bass. Keep in mind that you do need to obtain a fishing license and we do not have gear on our property to loan out so you’ll need to bring your own rod and tackle. When you catch “the big one” we’d love to hear the story! There is still time to get in a memorable summer getaway—book online today and contact us anytime for further information.
