Last weekend, Lanesboro celebrated Buffalo Bill Days. This annual town celebration boasted dances, fireworks, volleyball and softball tournaments, and a grand parade.
Not only has Lanesboro been bustling with activities, so has Stone Mill Hotel & Suites. The newest lodging room is now open. The Mill Room is a lovely appointed room with a private bathroom and is located in the “mill” part of the building.
What has happened to our long summer days? As our days are starting to get shorter, I know it will only be a short time and we will be experiencing the beauty of another season. We are so fortunate to live in an area where we can experience the depth of the four seasons. Shortly, the summer green will give way to the golden shades of autumn.
Soon, I will write about the “Mill Studio”. In the meantime, enjoy the beauty each day brings!
The new front desk area at Stone Mill Hotel & Suites is now decorated with the feed bags in the picture. One of the bags was used in the facility during its “working days”. As the renovation continues, we realize this will be an extended project and appreciate your continued support and patience as we work to be the “choice” lodging destination in Lanesboro.
The Stand Still Parade has become an annual event in Whalan, MN and will be held on Saturday, May 19 from 11 am – 4 pm. Not only can you experience a parade where the “parade stands still” but you will also be able to sample a variety of foods, watch the pie eating contest, and listen to music. Children’s games, a petting zoo, and other activities will be available for the kids.
The Bluff Country Gathering will be held in Lanesboro this weekend. This multi-day event is sure to attract musicians from a wide area and provide entertainment for all ages.
After you take in the weekend festivities, check out the Spud Boy Diner and Another Time Ice Cream Parlor & Chocolates. The diner and ice cream parlor are Lanesboro’s newest additions to the casual cuisine scene.
If you care for a short drive, The annual Trout Days celebration will be held in Preston, MN.
Wherever you are, near or far, there’s always a few more things to explore . . . .
Rick 2 continues to move ahead with the new renovations. In fact, we were open for Amish Tours for the past two weeks. Meetings with the State Health Inspectors, plan reviews, phone lines, internet service and the list goes on! We are so thankful for the team. Employees start training this week.
