Lanesboro
Lanesboro is a historic village nestled in the Bluffs of the Root River Valley. Experience the spectacular paved Root River State Bike Trail, winding 60 miles through Bluff Country. Excellent for biking, hiking, and cross-country skiing, it runs along towering limestone bluffs, dense hardwood forests and peaceful small towns.

Besides receiving the Great American Main Street Award, Lanesboro was named one of 100 Best Small Art Towns in America by author John Villani and one of the 50 Best Outdoor Sports Towns by Sports Afield magazine. Outside Magazine featured Lanesboro as one of the '20 Best Dream Towns in America to Live and Play.'

Whalan
Whalan is located 4 miles East of Lanesboro, on the Historic Bluff Country National Scenic Byway. Whalan is a little town of about 35 people. The town is only 4 blocks by 4 blocks. You have the river on the one side and you are surrounded by magestic bluffs on the other 3 sides. Here you will enjoy the peace and quiet on would expect in a weekend getaway. The Root River State Bicycle trail runs right along the river and at the base of the bluffs for most of it's 60 mile trek.

Little known adventures
Book yourself a horse drawn wagon ride. Imagine riding thru the woods overlooking the Root River Valley. Relax being at peace with the great outdoors. The scenic overlooks are like no other in the area. Explore over 100 acres of wooded private property. Horse drawn wagon rides are available year around. The rides take about an hour. Half way thru the ride, you stop at a little cabin over looking the Root River Valley, where you can warm up for the journey back. It is a must do activity.

Bluff Country Jeep Tours, another wonderful way to explore the wilderness. You are taken from the bottom of the bluff, up to the top along private trails, that allow you to truly enjoy the outdoors. We take you places that you would be glad you were not hiking...:-) The switch back trails bring you from the river bottoms up 450 feet up to one of the most spectacular views imaginable.

Amish tours are another must see. We have several Amish communities to visit, and shop with.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2001

                      About the owner: Hello, and welcome to Cyclin-inn in beautiful Whalan, Minnesota. I am Tammy Hughes, the proprietor of the Cyclin-inn. I am originally from Duluth, Minnesota and have been migrating south ever since I became old enough to explore Minnesota. After spending 15 years in the Twin Cities, and escaping every weekend to go biking, kayaking, or horseback riding, I decided that I should make my move a bit further south. With the Root River / Root River State Bicycle Trail being the draw, I began searching for my dream property. In discovering Lanesboro with its majestic bluffs and scenic views, I fell in love. In 2001, I found my little haven in Whalan, just 4 miles east of Lanesboro. During the first year, I was in love again with Litefoot. He is a half Belgian and half Appaloosa draft / riding horse. Living on the outskirts of the small community of Whalan, he quickly moved in. So in the mean while, I created the Cyclin-inn. Allowing you to enjoy the peacefulness of the small community and the great outdoor scenery right out the door on the Root River, On the Root River State Bicycle Trail. Please enjoy my home and treat it as your own. You will find all the comforts of home and more. The Cyclin-Inn is located on the Root River State Bicycle Trail, on the Root River and within a block of two city parks, and Gator Greens Mini Golf. Whalan has 2 places to eat, and an outfitter within walking distance where you can rent a bike, kayak, tube, or even a canoe. Within a few blocks, you can connect with Bluff Country's Jeep Tours, and even take a horse drawn sleigh or wagon ride. Bring your family and friends to Whalan for a fun, relaxing getaway. On your way here, explore our National Scenic Byway, Highway 16. The town of Whalan offers peaceful tranquility and opportunity to explore the Bluffs of Minnesota.

                      Why the Owner Chose Lanesboro:
                      This property has perfect access to the Root River Bike Trail as well as the Root River.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
