Welcome to the New Explore White Bear Website!

Jul 26, 2021

A warm Minnesota welcome awaits you at White Bear Country Inn. Enjoy hometown hospitality, first class accommodations, award-winning food from Rudy’s Redeye Grill, and much more!

Our hotel has an array of amenities like that of a charming inn with the high standards of the Best Western Plus chain. From an indoor saltwater pool to award-winning food like our Bull Bites and our Canadian Pan-Fried Walleye or enjoy one of our Famous Rudytinis, all are worth stopping in for at Rudy’s Redeye Grill. 

Located in the art district and across from Lakeshore Players Club, Children’s Performing Arts Center, White Bear Art Center, and the McNeely Music Center. Also, within walking distance of our beautiful downtown White Bear, where it’s easy to get lost in an enjoyable weekend of shopping, dining, and making memories.  We are within blocks of the lake too, which gives you plenty of options when staying with us.

Our owner operator Bill Foussard is always stopping and talking with guests, making them feel at home.  We welcome the opportunity to serve you with hotel accommodations along with dining at one of our two restaurants, either Rudy’s Redeye Grill or Rudy’s Rooftop, open seasonally.

Have an event? We can help with that! We have large event spaces that are ideal for hosting meetings, weddings, conferences, or a celebration of life. We would love to greet you with a big welcome here at the White Bear Country Inn.
