My husband and I have absolutley loved our experiences with Den adn Robert at the Crystal River Inn. We make an annual trip to get away because the areas also has the best Cross Crounty skiiing in the state. Deb and Robert really take great pains in making sure we were taken care of. Even greating us at the door... More

The hosts were very welcoming, breakfast was excellent. Made from locally sourced food as much as possible. The Inn is very peacefull. It was a great place to watch birds, everything from Bald eagles to a large variety of woodpeckers to tiny chickadees. This was our first experience with a B&B and my wife and I very much enjoyed ourselves.

Great to have you two here! We always delight in guests' appreciation of the wonderful natural area surrounding the inn. Just last week we saw a new bird to add to our life list of birds seen on our land or from our land - a flock of about a dozen Common Goldeneye (ducks) were on the Crystal River. Since... More

Deb and Robert were great hosts and very accommodating. We arrived late and Deb had even made apple crisp for my wife and i (we were the only guests the first night). The breakfast room overlooks the Crystal River as it meanders behind the farmhouse and we enjoyed watching birds and squirrels through the many windows. The common room includes... More

This picturesque B&B provides the quintessential retreat. The rural setting includes a lovely river view, prairie, beautiful outbuildings, a labyrinth, area hiking and boating opportunities and scores of birds. We feel right at home in this cozy inn, and so will you. The owners, Deb and Robert Benada, are gracious hosts and fabulous cooks, catering to our numerous dietary restrictions.... More

What a great hidden gem! B&B is a great location in the tiny community of Rural, WI. The meandering Crystal River flows past the inn and provides a great sense of tranquility. Deb and Robert are great hosts and made us feel at home. They were very mindful of dietary needs in preparing breakfast. Speaking of breakfast.....it was awesome. Locally... More

You two are hearty Wisconsinites to brave the cold while enjoying the beauty of Rural, WI! We were glad to hear you had a good time cross country skiing at Hartman Creek. We too appreciate the nearness as well as wonderful resource of the State Park. We're happy to be able to make a breakfast from foods locally grown for... More

This was by far one of the most beautiful B&Bs that we have visited. The Crystal River runs through the grounds and we had a fabulous view of it from The Canopy Room. The room was lovely and we enjoyed the whirlpool. Robert and Deb, the innkeepers, make you feel welcomed and at home and the breakfasts were fantastic! We... More

What a delight to have you two here! Thanks for staying with us AND for sharing your rhubarb cookie recipe. We have so many other guests who love rhubarb that we look forward to spring and fresh garden produce. Actually, we do enjoy the peaceful transition to winter - another beautiful time of year here. Peace be with you. More

Rural, WI is a place like no other, I've never seen a river that winds around so many properties in one tiny village. The Crystal River Inn is friendly, inviting, warm and unique. We stayed in the French Country Cottage--a great little romantic nest. The breakfast was easy going and meeting some of the other guests was comfortable and interesting.... More

We have stayed at many B & B's over the years. Crystal River Inn would be at the very top of the list. Deb and Robert do an outstanding job making you feel at home. The rustic setting makes the Inn even more unique. The breakfast were very well prepared with many homegrown organic items.

The Crystal River Inn is clean, charming, and comfortable. It is located in a quiet, verdant and historic setting. The Crystal River runs nearby. Deb and Robert are thoughtful hosts and the breakfasts are not just good, they're amazing. There is more privacy than in many B&B's. Much to do nearby on the Chain of Lakes area. Great place to...
