It was a great stay
An enjoying stay!
We had a great stay in Preston. The house was just perfect for our “girls” weekend. It was a pretty drive to Lanesboro, where we took in shopping, eating, massages and a play.
We really appreciated the comfortable beds, and the owner, Tara, was very pleasant and helpful.
Great house for our family getaway.
The house was perfect for our large family to stay in. The grandkids has lots of room to run around inside and out in the yard.
Tara was very responsive to any questions and needs we had and responded in a timely fashion.
Our only regret is that it isn't located in Lanesboro, but of course that can't be helped ;).
Thanks for a great weekend!
Beautiful house with great hosts.
House is very nice and spotless! The beds and linens were top notch. We enjoyed our stay. The hosts were very helpful. I needed a hairdryer and they had one for me in ten minutes. Thank you for sharing your house. Denice
Beautiful older home, great for larger groups of family or friends, very comfortable.
The house has lots of rooms for relaxing, nice kitchen, large back yard with a fire pit stocked with wood, and nice outdoor patios. Our hosts being very friendly and helpful made our stay very pleasant.
The Root River trail head is near by which is great for walks, runs, biking, and other water activities, it flows to several towns which are fun to explore.
Preston is a nice peaceful town and the house is within walking distance to the downtown and it's a short distance to other towns along the trial making it a easy bike ride to get around.
The tubing out of Lanesboro is a fun activity as well as canoeing and kayaking for a relaxing afternoon on a beautiful little river. We had a great time exploring this area with the help of our hosts and friendly local people, we will certainly be back.
Thank you so much for your thoughtful review! We enjoyed hosting your group and would love to have you back again!
