Crystal River Inn is an 1853 farmstead Bed & Breakfast located in a quaint & historic village just minutes from Waupaca and the Chain of Lakes. The Inn sits on the banks of the Crystal River with the river peacefully flowing and winding throughout the village of Rural. The Inn’s guest rooms have antique furnishings, a view of the river and/or woods, a nook for reading or visiting, private baths and most rooms include a fireplace. Children and dogs are welcome in any of our three cottages: Little House on the Prairie (Sleeps 6), The Granary (Sleeps 6) or The Coop (Sleeps 2). Explore the 11.5 acres of the property which is a certified Wildlife Habitat with walking paths, a Labyrinth, historic barns and an Artisan well. We are Travel Green Wisconsin certified and only brew organic, fair traded coffee and teas. We’re pleased to cater to special diets, i.e. gluten free and vegetarian. The multi-course breakfast is served in our dining room which overlooks the river. All are welcome!
