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.
