Otter Creek Inn

2536 Highway 12 , Eau Claire, WI 54701 USA (Show map)


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.

Wonderfully Comfortable

My husband and I stayed at Otter Creek Inn for my birthday recently, and were greeted with warmth and hospitality. Dennis greeted us as we drove in, and after a short tour of the accommodation and explanation of the policies, we were made to feel right at home. We spent the evening drinking tea among antiques in the living room after a walk around the city. The in-room Jacuzzi was a welcome refuge from the rainy weather, and the morning breakfast, brought to our room at our specified time, was delicious and catered to my gluten intolerance with ease. The rooms were cozy, comfortable, and clean. No complaints, and we will visit there again.

Wonderful Stay!!

This was our first experience with a bed and breakfast, but definitely not our last! We were pleasantly surprised with the room, the staff and the service we received. The most relaxing stay we've ever had! Breakfast was TERRIFIC as well. We would highly recommend Otter Creek to our friends and family.

We'll Be Back!

Great place!

The Otter Creek Inn is a great place for a getaway in Eau Claire area. It is close to many great dining options for dinner and the breakfast menu was superb. The rooms were nicely decorated and the bed was comfortable! Will be returning soon!

What a Find!

The room was perfect with lots of little details that say that the owners really went the extra mile. There were choices for breakfast which was awesome for us since we have a little less adventuresome pallets and have gone hungry in the face of overly enthusiastic chefs. There was also a choice of being served breakfast in your room or in the common area which meant we had the dining room to ourselves and missed the social aspect of a b&b.

Great when away on business

I stay here when traveling to Eau Claire area on business. It is such a pleasure to be pampered at such a delightful place. The breakfasts are great and delivered right to your door at the time you request, piping hot. I have only met Randy and he is accomodating and friendly.

Great Get Away

This inn has incredible history and is a pure delight. Close to downtown but when in the inn, you feel you are out in quiet country.

Thank you Randy for another wonderful experience at Otter Creek. We had a wonderful time and again, your hospitality was outstanding and we are already looking forward to the next time we get to visit you!!!

Fantastic little getaway

We were greeted at the door and instantly treated like an old friend coming to visit. Even though there are other rooms, we felt as though we had the whole place to ourselves. They have thought of everything from providing corkscrews for wine bottles to an excellent selection of older movies to the ability to dim the lights for a romantic setting by the fireplace or in the hot tub. I will be recommending Otter Creek Inn to all of my friends as well as planning another stay myself.

Wonderful getaway

Directions to property:

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. If you reach the stoplight at 10th Street and see the golf course and country club on the right, you have gone too far and just missed us.
