The Featured Hotel for the 2018 Chippewa Valley Book Festival is The Oxbow Hotel in downtown Eau Claire. This unique property consists of two distinct buildings — The Main House and The Flats — joined by an actively programmed courtyard and a comfortable, woodsy patio. In addition to rooms, the Main House hosts The Lakely — a farmer-sourced restaurant, bar, and music venue — as well as an on-site outdoor outfitter offering bikes, kayaks, canoes, and other adventure gear.
We would like to extend a special thank you to The Oxbow Hotel for supporting the 2018 Festival.
