On a wooded hillside high above, but adjacent to, the Otter Creek is this spacious three-story English Tudor Inn. Inside is an inviting, romantic, antique-filled Country-Victorian decor. Each guestroom has a private restroom with shower, a double whirlpool, TV, VCR, CD player, and coffeemaker. Many guestrooms also have a gas fireplace and mini-frig. Breakfast-in-bed is a specialty and the breakfast menu allows a choice of entrees and serving times. The one acre wooded setting is located within the city limits, close to numerous restaurants and shops, and just 1 1/2 hours southeast of the St. Paul/Minneapolis area. A bike trail crosses the property.

Host welcome and knowledge of area restaurants, great!

3.6 on November 09, 2014

Our room was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The breakfast was tasty and attractively served on a tray at our door. We were tired from traveling and appreciated the option of having breakfast in bed, which was luxuriously appointed with many pillows.Although we arrived a bit after the required check-in time, the innkeeper met us a the door with a warm welcome and graciously provided all the information we needed for our stay. He also gave us a tour of the inn and was most helpful with finding a good local restaurant.

One of the best B&b's we have stayed at!

Otter Creek Inn - A GREAT Place to Get Away

4.0 on October 22, 2014

We were very impressed on this, our first stay at the Otter Creek Inn. The accommodations were great, the rooms were beautiful, clean and comfortable, the service was exemplary and the staff were very nice. We fully expect to come and stay again. I would highly recommend The Otter Creek Inn to anyone looking for a quiet and very nice place to get away from it all. THANKS OTTER CREEK INN!

Lovely B&B

3.8 on September 02, 2014

Very pretty home, we stayed in the spacious Palm Room - nicely decorated, cool separate bath area with large whirlpool. Randy is an amiable & helpful host. You get to choose among many bfast choices the night before, which we had in our room. Good food & coffee! We love Dragonetti's Italian restaurant, just down the road.

The Inn Keeper with a desire to serve

4.8 on August 23, 2014

Otter Creek Inn was a welcomed comfortable safe place between wedding events in Chippewa Falls that spanned 4 days. The Inn Keeper personally welcomed us and gave the tour as if we were beloved house guests he already knew. The breakfast menu, food and delivery options were over the top delicious and fun. We enjoyed the grounds on our last day as the courtyard sitting area was an inviting place to read/sew before the drive and flight home. The Inn Keeper also gave us wonderful suggestions of places to visit on our drive to LaCrosse. He made all the difference in our enjoyment of comfortable rooms and very convenient location along Hwy 53.

You 'otter' stay here!

Everything about this B and B is exemplary. The owners are professional and even though the inn has the advantages of a bed and breakfast and all that this entails in the way of personalized service, it is efficiently managed. The breakfast order was taken the evening before and delivered at the room on time and beautifully presented. We enjoyed the room and cleanliness. Definitely would recommend it. A railing up to the house from the parking lot and grab bars in the shower would be nice but is not intended as a criticism. Very nice people and very nice inn. Barbara and Marj

From Interstate 94, take the exit for Highway 53 to the north (Exit #70). Proceed north on Highway 53 (not Business 53)approximately 2.5 miles. Take Exit #87 for Clairemont Avenue (also known as Highway 12)and turn east (right) onto Clairemont Avenue. Almost immediately move into the left-hand lane and then into the left-hand turn lane. This is the turn in to the Otter Creek Inn, which is on the north side of the road.
