Crystal River Inn is an 1853 farmstead turned bed and breakfast 30 years ago!
The Inn sits on the banks of the Crystal River in the historic village of Rural, a quiet, welcoming place for all to feel at home.
This is a certified Wildlife Habitat on 11 acres of short and tall grass prairie restorations, a mowed labyrinth, and walking paths through native plant gardens and woods.
We are Travel Green Wisconsin certified and brew only organic, fair traded coffee and teas. We serve fresh vegetables from our garden and from Turners’ Farm Market. Riley Crest Organic farm supplies our eggs, bacon and maple syrup. We get all our whole wheat flour through Lonesome Stone Mill from organic farmers surrounding Lone Rock, WI, and make all our bread and rolls with their flour and our wild caught yeast. You’ll find surprisingly flavorful wild berry jams and jellies on our homemade breads. We’re pleased to cater to special diets, i.e. gluten free and vegetarian.
This is a delightful destination! There are so many ways to enjoy nature: Hartman Creek State Park and Rustic roads for biking and hiking and the Chain O’Lakes for boating, kayaking/canoeing and swimming. The Waupaca area has many shops and excellent restaurants. In the Inn and grounds you’ll find cozy places to sit and read or just be.
