My wife and I stayed here a weekend in early June. I made a reservation here a few months prior without much knowledge of lodging options in Lanesboro. This was a surprise trip for the wife. I scoured the web reading reviews and checking prices and availability. So I picked it without any first hand knowledge or referrals from friends. During the weekend, we biked, walked, and drove around Lanesboro and we did not see one place we'd rather have stayed at, and some we are glad we did not chose. On arrival we were very impressed with the location and quality for the price. The owner greeted us, showed us our room and provided several nearby dining options for dinner when we inquired. We stayed in Butternut East. Much of it was newly remodeled: carpet, new doors, paint, the entire bathroom. Very cozy and relaxing. It is right next to the Root River bike trail, which is beautiful. You can bike many miles either east or west right from here. Walk to many restaurants and theaters, just 1-2 blocks away. A simple continental breakfast of coffee and bagels or English muffins was appreciated. Parking and inside bike storage were provided. The only downside were the late night noisy drunks from the bar across the street. Otherwise very relaxing and quiet.
