Vacation days in a pristine cottage over-looking a stunning river

5 on August 12, 2017

The vacation started with a warm welcome from the owner of the lodge and a private tour of the cottage. The rest of the days spent relaxing near the river or in the hot tub. most nights were spent by the fire on a new redone patio over looking the river.

Fishing with my sons

4.2 on June 25, 2017

I recently reserved the vacation lodge at Kinni lodge and ewsort for myself and two grown sons. Found the living extremely place clean and very comfortable. Location was very quite despite being right off main. Patio faces the river and the river is very accessible. Kitchen has tools for cooking although we decided to eat out. The lodge is walking distance to many restaurants. Staff arranged for a fishing guide that made for a greatvday of fishing. All in all i would fo back for a relaxing getaway.

Fantastic Father's Day getaway

Really loved this place-we stayed in the cottage which was spacious, convenient and relaxing. Loved the hot tub, fire pit, and grill. Very convenient to be literally on the river and next to the shop for fly fishing

The bedroom and bathroom were tiny for the price of the lodging.

Innkeeper Response
The rate is not just for the room. The rate includes the living room lounge area, dining area, patio area, hot tub over looking the river, additional campfire patio area overlooking the river, 180 feet of river frontage with direct access to trout fishing and kayaking, parking area, a very large continental breakfast selection, WiFi access, bathrobes & slippers and complimentary beverage tickets for the very popular restaurant just two blocks up the sidewalk! ~Cheers!

Everything was excellent. Place is very cozy. We will definitely be back!

A nice stay for a get-a-way

4.4 on October 21, 2013

It should be noted that this is a B&B type of stay. There are 3 separate bedrooms (with separate baths) but the rest of the 'lodge' is communal. There is a shared entry, living room, kitchen, deck and hot tub. Since we traveled with friends this was a great feature because we were all able to sit around the living room / kitchen and play cards etc...but the shared space should be considered if traveling only as a couple. We also really enjoyed the complimentary continental breakfast with plenty of options to choose from. The kayak float proved to be an exciting, fast moving float along some very scenic stretches of the Kinnikinnic. Overall this was a great stay and we plan to return next fall for another kayak float.

great set up!!

Belated Anniversary Surprise!

4.6 on August 20, 2013

We had a great time at Kinni Creek! My husband is in the Army and was away for training over our first wedding anniversary. This was quite depressing but when I found the Groupon for the kayaking trip, I jumped at the chance to surprise him with a belated gift. We haven't had a honeymoon either (again, at the will of the US Army) and having two children makes it hard to get away. Kinni Creek allowed us to reconnect with each other in a relaxing and fun way not too far from home! The lodge was peaceful and comfortable and the activities offered on the river were what we have always loved doing together. Paige was so hospitable and Elliot was great to chat with as well. We plan on heading back there in a few year when our kids are older and can enjoy it with us.

August visit to Kinni Creek Lodge and Outfitters

4.2 on August 17, 2013

We stayed one night at the Kinni Creek Lodge in August, 2013. The grounds are surprisingly picturesque considering the lodge is right off main street in River Falls. The rooms overlook the Kinni Creek and feature a lovely patio area with hot tub. Our room was clean and spacious. We did not take advantage of any of the fishing or kayaking services.
