A visitor to Lanesboro,Scott from White Bear Lake, took this beautiful picture of the tulips right outside our front door last weekend. Thank you Scott!

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.
TheFEED MILL complex in Lanesboro is undergoing exciting new changes. With Mom’s (Cheryl’s) retirement from Cheryl’s Apparel in November 2011, we move forward undertaking new endeavors. Our first construction project (or should I say Rick2first construction project) is the building of the new front desk area for Stone Mill Hotel & Suites among other businesses (more on that in later posts).
"I'm having so much fun"
For those of you whom haven’t been introduced Rick2 includes the team of my Dad and Rick Sjarpe our very skilled maintenance and handyman that has been part of our family for 9 years. In the photos you are seeing that our “Check In” Area will now be located in the “Red Mill” building to the east of the Stone Mill limestone building. I look forward to providing posts on the process of changes to our lovingly restored FEED MILL.
