Unique stay

4.2 on January 16, 2015

I have been wanting to stay at the Stone Mill ever since I drove by it one summer day. I can say that our visit did not disappoint. This is such a neat place. We stayed in the off season so we didn't have a lot of dining or entertainment options, but we had fun playing games in our room. Rick, the owner, was staffing the front desk. He was very friendly and accommodating. We look forward to coming back to the neat little town of Lanesboro again in the peak season, and we will be reserving a room at the Stone Mill.

Charming Small Hotel

We have stayed here many times and have never been disappointed. Each room is different, charming, and well equipped. The staff is fantastic and makes sure you are comfortable after personally showing you your room and explaining how everything works. Breakfast has always included wonderful pastries from the bakery down the street as well as many basic breakfast items. There is a very friendly and helpful breakfast host who is available to answer any questions about the area's activities.

We arrived late at night and were welcomed by Rick and Cheryl. We stayed in the Garden Suite! So charming and cozy on a cool and windy fall evening!

Hotel feels like home away from home

Can't beat location near bike trail and theater, great hospitality and ambiance of this converted mill. Also welcomes well behaved children, an unfortunately uncommon attribute in Lanesboro.

Relaxing and comfortable place to stay

I didn't rate the dining because we were never up early enough to take advantage of the breakfast (perhaps breakfast is served too early for some). If you get a chance to stay in Lanesboro you should really stay here, it's a friendly and clean place to stay

Wonderful start to our vacation

Stone Mill Hotel and Suites was our first start on our B&B vacation. (My husband had not stayed at a B&B previously, so wasn't sure what to expect.) The room was adorable. We stayed in the Fishing Room - my dad was an avid fisherman and he passed away last year, so it reminded us of him a lot. We took a "tour" of all the rooms and they were all very cute! Rooms were clean - water was hot - facility was quiet. Breakfast was your basic continental, but the pastries were wonderful. Maybe add some greek yogurt to the fridge? Everyone was very friendly and went out of their way to help you. It was nice to be able to arrange for the Amish Tour at the hotel. The location is convenient to everything in Lanesboro. We will definitely be returning to Stone Mill and Lanesboro.

Warm, welcoming, fabulous stay

My wife and I spent a weekend in Lanesboro at the Stone Mill Hotel, and recommend it to all our friends. The town is lovely (great art shops, fun restaurants), the bike trails are fantastic (stop on the way for pie), and the theater company in Lanesboro is surprisingly first rate. They staged an intelligent and accessible "Arcadia" by Stoppard (a brilliant but difficult play) better, I think, that the NYC production. Stunning. And The Stone Mill Hotel was exceptional -- friendly, warm, great service, perfect location (a block from the theater). They have done a great renovation of an old mill, making spacious rooms with comfortable beds and fantastic water fixtures (our hot tub was terrific!). I highly recommend both a trip to Lanesboro to bike the trails, enjoy shopping, and see a play, and I highly recommend The Stone Mill Hotel. You'll have a blast.

AWESOME City great B&B- friendly Breakfast guy
