Stay awhile!

Located in the heart of Minnesota, the Staples area is the perfect place to stay when you are away from home.  Enjoy the laid back environment of small town living while being close to all the larger lakes and busy recreational areas.

Walk to nearby restaurants, listen to Music in the Park, and tube down the Crow Wing.  That's just a short list of the fun available here in the Staples Motley area.  Find more adventure ideas on our Things To Do page.
