The popular Lanesboro Holiday Inn Tour is coming soon, and this year it comes with a special twist. The Tour welcomes people to visit the Bed & Breakfasts and inns that have made Lanesboro the Bed and Breakfast Capital of Minnesota. This year the Tour will happen over two days: November 19th and 20th. Six inns will be open on Saturday November 19th, and six more on Sunday the 20th. Each will be decorated for the holidays and will offer a warm welcome to their special homes. The Old Village Hall Restaurant & Pub will also be serving Amuse Bouche (bite-sized appetizers) to all tour ticket holders as part of the tour. Visit the inn tour web site to see the inns participating in the tour. The times of the tour each day are 2-6 p.m.
Tickets purchased in advance are $20 for a one-day visit, $35 for two days. Guests who are staying at any of the sponsoring inns that weekend will receive half-price inn tour tickets. Enjoy the charm of Lanesboro and the beauty of the decorated B & B’s as a way to begin your holiday festivities. For more information, call 800-944-2670 or 507-467-2696. Advanced tickets—which are limited—can be purchased online at or in-person at the Lanesboro Visitor Center in downtown Lanesboro. Advanced ticket purchase is recommended. Tickets purchased on the day of the tour are $30 for one day and $45 for two days.
Make your visit to Lanesboro complete by dining downtown and attending the holiday play “Parfumerie” at the Commonweal Theatre. See you at the 3rd Lanesboro Holiday Inn Tour.

For some, quiet season is a time for relaxing, vacationing, and resting before the next peak season. While here at Stone Mill, we do do some of that, for the most part the quiet season is a time of preparations. There is a lot of time spent updating, tweaking and general housekeeping that goes on so that when you arrive you already feel as if you are home.
This year, one of our largest task has been the process of updating and upgrading our web site. With lots of time, patience and hard work, Sarah at Peterson Creative has helped us put together what we believe to be our best Web Site ever!
This new website has many great new features and updates. We hope that you will take the time to enjoy this new website and use it as a great new tool for planning your perfect Lanesboro Getaway.

Stone Mill Suites Has A Brand New Look
Just outside of Stone Mill Hotel & Suites there is a planter, and in this planter each and every spring Cheryl (Colleen’s Mom) always plants beautiful flowers. In the spring however, there are a few crocuses that always seem to sprout up before anything else can be planted.
We like to think of these delicate and beautiful perennials as the first signs that soon the weather will warm and that the bikers and theater goers will soon be back and another wonderful summer season is just around the corner.
But there is so much more going on around the Mill here than just beautiful little flowers peaking up through the soil. We have been hard at work all winter long putting together new ideas and a few new touches here and there to welcome each and every one of you back to your favorite overnight Lanesboro lodging. We hope that each of you will keep up to date here on our new blog with all the comings and goings of life here at the old Lanesboro FEED MILL.
Check back often because you never know what can happen just a stone’s throw from anywhere you are…
