As part of my annual trek to the Iola Old car show, this year My wife and I stayed at the Crystal River Inn B&B in Waupaca, WI. We stayed in the canopy room which we chose because it had a private entrance and on the first floor. Deb and Robert welcomed us when we arrived and made us feel... More

We have stayed at the Crystal River B&B several times over the years, and have always had a wonderful stay. Check out Deb's garden if you are there in the summer, and don't forget to take a stroll through historic Rural. The Crystal River outside your door will lull you to sleep at night...and you will wake refreshed to a... More

We stumbled upon tiny Rural, Wis. last year and fell in love. The sparkling Crystal River twists and turns right through this town of beautifully preserved historic homes and one-lane bridges. I jumped at the opportunity to stay at the Crystal River Inn while attending fly fishing camp last week. What a delight! Deb and Robert are warm, unintrusive hosts... More

This is our third trip back to the Crystal River Inn. It is better than home away from home with the hospitality from Deb and the awesome gourmet breakfast that Robert makes. We have stayed in three different rooms while there and they are all unique and worth a try. The property is gorgeous historic country and situated on the... More

My family spent Easter weekend at the Inn. Most of our group had never stayed in a B&B before and they are still taking about what a great weekend we had. Such a relaxing house with plenty of beautiful outdoor scenery to enjoy. We'll be back!

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.

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
