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.

My wife and I stayed there for our anniversary and we enjoyed ourselves. Some things need updating like getting rid of the VCR’s and replacing them with DVDs. They do have an extensive library of VCR tapes so replacement would be expensive. The whirlpool was just that it had two jets and really wasn’t big enough for two people. Overall this is a very nice place to stay and the food was great. It is the only Bed and Breakfast we have ever stayed at that gave us a choice of breakfast items the night before to choose from.

Wonderful Stay at Otter Creek Inn

When you read the detailed story of this dynamic duo of Randy and Shelley and all the work they have done to create this gorgeous place, you begin to appreciate all the love they have for their home and business. The history is very interesting and well worth reading. You will love the way this B&B is tucked in the trees off the highway and feel like you are somewhere else. Randy offered us choices of rooms and it was difficult as each one available was very nice. We stayed in the Violet Room, Shelley's favorite. It was very clean and comfortable. Wished we could have stayed another night to really relax and enjoy the home and more of the city of Eau Claire. Breakfast was served to our room, which he said most people do. It was very impressive and delicious. Our only regret was that we did not meet the phenomenal talent of Shelley. I would loved to have told her in person what an awesome place they have created to share with all of us. Thank you for a great stay!

My boyfriend and I stayed at Otter Creek Inn, late May 2014. This was our first experience with Bed and Breakfasts at all, and we were very pleased. We will absolutely be staying with more B&B's, and definitely will be staying at Otter Creek again when we are in that area!

Rekindle the fire in your marriage here! We have been so busy with raising the kids, house, new jobs, and life that our marriage health needed some spark! The Otter Creek Inn (and my sister watching the kids) provided the vino and quaint relaxing atmosphere we so much needed! Thank you Otter Creek Inn!!!

Best Breakfast!

Beyond our expectations

5 on February 19, 2014

Our stay was our first Valentine's Day together and newly married. I had never stayed at a B&B before but my husband had experienced some before. I was in awe and he was very impressed. We will definitely be making this our "get-a-way" destination. The place was beautiful, the owners were friendly and accomodating, and the breakfast was delicious and beautiful. We will be back!

Beautiful Winter Getaway

We had an amazing stay. Wished we could've stayed longer. This is the third B&B we've stayed at and it is by FAR the absolute BEST!!! Not a doubt in my mind that we'll be back.
