We booked the lodge due to a last minute change in our travel plans. I’m very appreciative that we were able to book two days before our arrival, and getting the “cabin package” gave us room for everyone in our party as well as use of the kitchen. The lodge itself is an older

Heather M, We're so glad we could get you booked into the lodge just two days before your arrival as it is rare for us to have vacancy during high season. Thank you for sharing that the lodge has lots of character and charm! It was built in the year 1885 and indeed has areas where it shows its age, 134 years old! We have jumped through all of the hoops at the River Falls city hall to get variance building permits to remodel and become wheelchair and handicapped accessible, but the variance committee denied the request and noted that remodeling "would ruin the river." We also took the case to the county court and were denied, therefore remodling is on hold. The price of the lodge is right in line with other comparable establishments in the area and we review this on an annual basis. We're sorry it was not in line with your budget. We do offer lower prices in the off-season and hope that you will visit us again if your budget allows. Thanks for also sharing that the location of the lodge is excellent - within walking distance to the downtown area (which has a variety of restaurants, taverns, and shops) and a short 5 minute drive to the university campus.Thank you for your business! We look forward to hosting you again at Kinni Creek Lodge and Outfitters! Cheers!

We had a great time kayaking the lower part of the river and staying at the cottage over night. Enjoyed grilling and being the jacuzzi over looking the river. We will come back for sure. Thanks for the great service.

I have been on a few kayaking trips and this was fun, the river moves fast and the small rapids make it interesting.. Beautiful scenery, we took the three hour trip and it took us about 3:40 minutes.. we did stop along the way for several pictures. We purchased a Groupon, $54

Wendy M, Thank you for the Stellar Review! Also thank you for sharing that your trip was fun and what others should expect with the river moving fast and small rapids that make it interesting!

We initially signed up for the 6-hour Jungle Safari Upper Kinni kayak trip, but after seeing the photos of the cottage, we decided to spend the night before and the night after our kayaking at the lodge. The three bedroom, four bathroom cabin was perfect for three couples. Hot

We booked a trip on the lower Kinni river. The river is amazing! We saw 4 other kayakers the entire 3 hour trip. It was something a beginner kayaker good do with a few small repids thrown in for a thrill. It was serene, and you really paddled through a variety of environments.
