Eau Claire “Underrated Getaway” – Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Monday, June 12, 2017

This is one of the more comprehensive looks at what it means to come stay with us and experience this city. Chelsea Lewis from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel visited a few weeks ago to stay in one of our rooms, eat and drink at The Lakely, take out a bike on the trails, and hit up all the local spots for a couple days filled with recreation, breweries, culture and more. Follow the link in out bio to read up and to see many photos of our place and others in the area, as well as a couple short videos.

Oxbow Hotel receives Exceptional Natural Resources Steward Award from City of Eau Claire Sustainability Committee

Wednesday, June 7, 2017

We were surprised and honored to receive an award on World Environment Day this week from the City of Eau Claire Sustainability Committee, along with a handful of other great local organizations. We received the “Exceptional Natural Resources Steward Award” for our effort in renovating existing historic structures, using urban waste wood to create furniture and fixtures throughout, re-using former railroad ties for fencing, creating a locally-focused farm-to-table restaurant with a low carbon footprint, and more. The City of Eau Claire has made great strides in advocating for and executing sustainable practices and we were so happy to be a part of the effort. Thanks to everyone who values these elements in their lodging choices, and to all who make efforts like these in their daily lives
