Oh My! What a hot one it is out there today! This is the hottest July I’ve seen since I was a little chick back on the farm! Squawk! It’s enough to even make a chicken be lazy!
But speaking about lazy, there is nothing lazy about Lanesboro! I just love this town. There is so much to see and do that all these folks think a day trip will do. They find out that they need to come back and stay a day or two so that they can have the full experience. Shopping, river activities and of course don’t forget my favorite activity… resting with the one you love! But alas, I digress…
The really interesting thing is that there is a tremendous amount of ingenuity to the folks that call Lanesboro home. We have fantastic chefs, Nancy and Dave just to name a few, Spoon Makers, Soap Makers, and Ice Cream galore!
Recently, Minnesota Public Radio and Winona Daily News did a story about some of the new and existing businesses in Historic Downtown Lanesboro! Lanesboro ‘urban expatriates’ embrace new home. We are so proud to live and work with these great people that add so much to our unique and charming little town.
Did you know that Peter Bilkey featured in the article above developed a special scent just for Stone Mill? That was an amusing experience for one of my Inn Keepers, Mandy. She spent several hours at Peter’s shop with her nose sniffing this scent and that scent. She found one that she liked and Peter worked his magic by pulling this element out, putting that element in and then shake, shake, mix, mix and what do you know you have this clean, fresh scent that everyone just loves called; Suites Scent with Juniper!
I would tell you more, because I have some really great stories from each of these folks that really speak to the uniqueness of Lanesboro. However, in such hot weather, even a young chicken such as myself needs to sit on the front deck of Stone Mill and rest.
So have a great time finding out about some of our shop owners and come down and stay with us some time. Squawk!
