Some of our rooms are available with kitchenettes. All of the rooms include free WIFI, a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee pots. For the hunter or fishermen and women we offer the areas only fish and game cleaning room. Our goal is to make your stay one of the best, hoping you will make River Rock Inn your first choice for lodging while you are in the Chequamegon Bay area.

Or, if you choose to eat out, we are within walking distance of some of the finest local eateries in Ashland. Our unique location gives you the best Ashland has to offer with a walking/biking trail and a boat launch just a stones' throw away. We also provide bicycles for our guests to use. Additionally, we are just a short drive to Bayfield, WI where you can catch a ferry to Madeline Island or take a boat tour of the Apostle Islands. Our bait shop personnel will help point you in the right direction for some of the best fishing in the area. Or, if you prefer, you can purchase fresh Lake Superior fish and smoked fish from our shop.
