My husband and I have stayed here many times. Because of this B & B we have stayed at many others when we travel; however, Rachel's has almost been far better, in every aspect, than the others. The other inns were not bad, it's just that after staying here, we expected so much more for our $ at the other inns. Thank you for being available and the great job you do to make us feel so special.

Bill & Kelly
Besides our love of vintage MOPAR vehicles, Bill and I spend a great deal of time entertaining our guest with outdoor adventures. We can often be found hosting a float down Black River, a bon-fire, hiking, fishing trip, or even a Pontoon trip on Clearwater Lake. We enjoy the company of our guest, and we get a kick out of finding ways to make each trip special.
