Several branches of our family gathered here to attend our daughter's senior recital at Lawrence University in Appleton about 40 miles away. What a lovely spot! Instead of being lined up along a motel corridor the "cousins and friends" took over the Little House on the Prairie lodging while the adult couples each had a room in the main house. We sang around a campfire, enjoyed fresh asparagus with our breakfast frittata and altogether enjoyed ourselves. Deb and Robert were gracious and welcoming and we had a really wonderful time.

Thank you for bringing your loved ones here and making the most of your time together. Congratulations on your daughter's success and we wish her well on the next part of her life journey.

We have been coming to this B&B for several years (4 couples) for cross-country skiing, ostensibly. However, as we have aged, the skiing has become walking instead. BUT, the Inn has not changed except for the better (if that was even possible.) Deb and Robert are fabulous, easy-going hosts who make our stay totally enjoyable. They are easy to deal with on every level - they always know what's "going on" in the area that we might be interested in, and have great recommendations for restaurants. The breakfasts that they serve are totally organic and scrumptious. I can only give them the highest rating. The accommodations are cozy and warm and just what we want.

We have been coming here for over 15 years, and we never cease to be impressed with the atmosphere, the amenities and the hosts. Deb and Robert make everyone feel so welcome and comfortable - as if this was indeed our own house. The breakfasts are wonderful, and we are encouraged to linger as long as we like in the breakfast room or in front of the cozy wood stove. The little village of Rural is rustic and scenic with the gorgeous Crystal River running through it. Staying at the Crystal River B and B, is like being in a romantic movie.

It's an honor to have your group of friends gather here. We love seeing you settling in as you know your get-away home and are free to ask if I forget something you want. You are special people and we are grateful for you!

If you're looking for an ideal spot to Get Away, Eureka! You've found it!

Crystal River Inn is perfect for any reason to spend time in Rural & the Waupaca area. From the welcoming friendly greeting when you first step inside, to the inviting conversations around the wood burning stove, and of course each and every bedroom with their individual personalities, Robert and Deb make sure every detail is covered. Not only is the environment natural and environmentally soothing, but their passion for using the very best of organic and local ingredients in their healthy & delicious breakfasts, also makes for a restorative weekend.

We are part of a group of 4 couples that have been coming here for an annual retreat weekend for over 20 years, and it just gets better and better as the years go by.

We've been to many B&B's, and by far, this is the nicest, the warmest, and one of the most rejuvenating environments we've experienced. There are private rooms and cottages, but we've always stayed in the big house. Now, I can go on and on, about how involved Deb & Robert are with the local community, I can write about how they take a healing and environmentally aware approach to everything they do, but you need to discover some things on your own.

I highly recommend Crystal River Inn. You will be so glad you were here, too!

Room Tip: Don't miss the labyrinth!A wholesome way to get in touch with your inner self! See? They provide all the healing tools in one spot!

Oh my goodness, I am almost speechless! You are so kind and appreciative. Thanks for taking time and energy to let others know about your experience and thoughts on Crystal River Inn. Winter is a gorgeous time to sit around a warm fire and visit, read and relax. We always look forward to seeing you all. Wishing you well, Deb

We were gathering with family in the area for Christmas and since there weren't enough beds there, we stayed at Crystal River Inn B&B. It was wonderful! So accommodating, welcoming, and warm. Deb and Robert are the perfect innkeepers. Such a delight.....the river was such a lovely sight (and sound) from our room. Can't wait to come again!!
