Spring into Art With Us in Lanesboro, Minnesota

Spring into Art Festival in Lanesboro, MinnesotaThe charming town of Lanesboro is nestled in the Root River Valley of Minnesota. This quaint little town has been charming visitors for decades, and has earned itself the reputation as being the “Bed and Breakfast Capital of Minnesota.” Guests come back year after year for a variety of reasons, not least of which is the scenic natural beauty found here.  Beyond that, Lanesboro is also an extraordinarily creative community, and in 2013 was named one of the country’s “Top 12 Small Town Artplaces” by Artplace America. That’s quite an honor for a town with a population of less than 1,000 people. This March, experience the arts in Lanesboro for yourself, with the Spring into Art Festival. As you look for lodging in Lanesboro, you’ll find nothing that beats the historic Habberstad House. Book your room at our Minnesota Bed and Breakfast today.
