Caught in a dismal, rainy weather on a bike, we needed to find lodging in Lanesboro. What a treasure we found! The owners welcomed us, warmed us, and trusted us with a room in their Feed Mill. It was impeccably clean, comfortable, amusingly interesting with the theme, and we also were fed a nice breakfast in the morning. Add to that, a delightful community that thrives on people, and we had the perfect adventure in Lanesboro!
