St Croix Valley brighter with Holiday Tour Dec 6th
Over the river and through the woods fifteen inns will be dressed in their holiday splendor Sunday, December 6 in the St. Croix Valley.  The Inns of the Valley are celebrating their first Holiday Tour du Valley from 1:00-5:00 pm. Innkeepers will share holiday traditions that day and guests will enjoy vast differences in style, size, and décor.
From a cottage style one suite inn (The Cottage in Taylors Falls) to a 41 room historic Inn (Water Street Inn in Stillwater) and from a Victorian six suite delight in town (Phipps Inn in Hudson) to a modern with a traditional twist four bedroom charmer in the country (Country Cove in Stillwater)– all are unique. Having a chance to enjoy the geography of the valley is part of this adventure as choices are as far south as Hastings on the Minnesota side (Classic Rosewood Inn) to as far north as St Croix Falls in Wisconsin (Wissahickon Farms Country Inn).Some photo opportunities with snow glistening on icy water include the Afton House in Afton, Kinni Creek in River Falls, Escape by the Lake in Hudson and both Pleasant Lake and St Croix River Inn in Osceola.
Touring inns during the holidays is like paging through Better Homes and Gardens Christmas issue, but here your other senses may be aroused too. The innkeeper’s individuality shines during the holiday season. You may be pleasantly surprised by “Dancing with the Stars” music at Asa Parker House in Marine as the innkeepers also own a dance studio. It is sometimes the ethnic heritage of the innkeeper that prevails in their décor as well.  Enjoy Argentina accents at Outing Lodge in Stillwater, a bit of the Irish at Cover Park Manor also in Stillwater, and a Scandinavia velkommen at Summit Inn in Center City.  Some inns have a tree in every room, and at one stop there is a tree decorated with baby shoes of all decades in what was once this mansion’s nursery.
There are Santa collections at a few inns and an angel collection you won’t want to miss.

Tickets for the Holiday Tour du Valley are $15 each. Call 715-386-0800. The Inns of the Valley span from Hastings to St Croix Falls.  Enjoy this event at a leisurely pace and choose a region of the valley with five or six inns or squeeze in all fifteen. The cost is the same no matter how many you choose to tour. Get a jump on your gift giving and treat yourself, your family or your friends and do the tour in a limo from Cities Limousine (

) They will pick you up and escort you from inn to inn and back again. The cost of their service varies depending on group size and vehicle chosen.
A great holiday bonus is the ticket cost of $15.  This is the discount available for purchasing a $100 gift certificate that day at any one of the inns. Get $15 off each and every $100 gift certificate that day only!  To promote this holiday tour this group of B&Bs are offering a two night package from Dec 1-21 that includes a 25% discount the second night.  Stay at any inn two consecutive nights, and receive 25% of the second night or lower priced night’s room rate.  This offer cannot be combined with any other specials.  Check with a particular inn for complete details.

Charlie's Pub Logo


Live Music for Charlie’s Irish Pub located in the Historic Water Street Inn, in downtown Stillwater
Charlie’s Pub features live music every Friday & Saturday night from
7:30 to 11:30

Lorraine Garland  (violin and vocals) and Minnesota geneticist Paul Score (guitar and vocals.) They take on a fine variety of musical styles and territory, along with such subjects as love and death, (often in the same song) and happiness and despair (also often in the same song), with cool melodies and strange lyrics from such diverse songwriters as Neil Gaiman, Jane Yolen, Stephen Merritt, Todd Menton and Emma Bull, with some severely damaged traditional tunes and original songs penned by the band. Fabulous Lorraine rose to fame with her duo the Flash Girls in the mid 90’s, (“the find of the year and perhaps beyond” – Utne Reader).
