Enjoy the Fall Colors in South East MN

Cool, crisp nights are upon us and the maples are starting to show their fall colors in South East Minnesota.  It looks like colors should peak around Oct 8-15 and we could get 3 good weeks of color in October.  It is time for you to book a fall foliage tour to Lanesboro.

Fall Colors in the the Root River Valley

During the week is a great time to visit.  The Root River bike trail is quieter.  All you can hear is the wind rustling in the trees and the crunch of new fallen leaves under your bike tires.  At the Hillcrest Hillcrest Hide-Away Bed & Breakfast we offer a mid-week discount for two night stays Sunday – Thursday.  Awaken to just-baked home made bread delivered to your room.  Then enjoy a hearty breakfast in our dining room made with locally grown, fresh ingredients.

Lanesboro offers more that bike touring.  You can visit the Amish community nearby.  The Amish will soon be harvesting corn for winter storage.  You can see the corn shocks drying in the fields.  The Amish bakery is one of my favorite stops.  Fresh, glazed donuts, cashew crunch, home made bread, and apple turnovers are just a sampling of what you will find.

As you visit the Amish, tour many of the ridge roads that offer mile after mile of beautiful fall foliage throughout Fillmore county.

The Commonweal Theatre is performing two plays this month: “Little Shop of Horrors” and “To Kill a Mockingbird”  Both plays have been lauded as outstanding performances.  Guests at our inn are eligible for a $5 discount for theatre tickets.  Plan your fall leaf color tour to Lanesboro “a quirky combination of the outdoors and the arts.”
