Lanesboro looks good in snow. We received a fresh covering in the past week that has transformed the Root River valley into a winter wonderland. The Root River Trail is groomed for cross country skiing for over 20 miles. There are also two great snowshoe trails nearby.
Schedule your two night winter getaway at the Hillcrest Hide-Away B&B through the end of March and receive a complementary soup supper with dessert served in our dining room (a $22 value). Through February we are offering a “snow guarantee” – make your reservation now – if there is no snow for skiing when you come, you can either cancel your reservation with no penalty or receive a $20/night discount for your stay.
