My husband and I have been coming to Crystal River Inn for a few years now. We keep coming back because we absolutely love it. It's sort of a home-away-from home for us. The innkeepers are so pleasant and inviting. Their property is beautiful and so relaxing. I love spending time around their property outdoors especially by the creek that...

We loved having you here! We never tire or get used to the river. It's a constant source of joy, grace and refreshment for us. We were delighted that you took advantage of a warm fall day and sat in the swing by the Crystal for a relaxing read ... a lovely unexpected treat! We look forward to seeing you...

Robert and Deb, the owners, could not have been any nicer! Their B&B is the best! Comfortable, clean, and in the best part of town right on the Crystal River. Fall asleep to the sounds of the river, enjoy a homemade breakfast, and a walk around historical Rural WI. What more can you ask for!

The pleasure is all ours! Thank you for staying with us. I don't recall if I told you that before we even thought of being B&B innkeepers we stayed here as guests and we thought the same thing - this is the best place! The Crystal River is such a treasure in this little "Yankee Village." We'd love to see...

Had an amazing weekend with my Mom at the Crystal River B&B! We came for the Rural Home Tour and decided to stay the night here. I highly recommend Helen's room with the willow bed and great view of the river from the little balcony. The mattress was super comfy! Breakfast was delicious! The barn and silo on the property...

We came a few days early to the Waupaca High School Reunion. This was our first time at Crystal River Inn B&B. The hosts Deb and Robert were fantastic. We were welcome like family.

This is the most enchanting and charming B&B!! The location and grounds were so beautiful, with lots of hidden treasures to explore, that they pulled you from the outside world into its own life.

Welcoming hosts with a charming, tranquil grand farm house. The beds were very comfortable and rooms tastefully decorated. We enjoyed listening to the ripples of the Crystal River from the screened porch and gabezo. The double whirlpools were a treat after biking the shaded rural roads. We hope to be back in the near future.

We loved having your family here - one of the really great things about living in a beautiful natural area is seeing others' delight in exploring the Rural and Waupaca area. Of course we appreciate your appreciation of Crystal River Inn also!

Deb and Robert have a beautiful house and they were very flexible when we arrived at 6:30 rather than 6 o'clock due to traffic and getting out of work. My boyfriend and I rented the wood room and it was just perfect for what we were hoping for for the weekend. We walked in and the queen bed was very...

We have been coming to this B&B for several years (4 couples) for cross-country skiing, ostensibly. However, as we have aged, the skiing has become walking instead. BUT, the Inn has not changed except for the better (if that was even possible.) Deb and Robert are fabulous, easy-going hosts who make our stay totally enjoyable. They are easy to deal...
