A light snow throughout the day put the finishing touch on a seasonal favorite in Lanesboro, Minn. on Sunday, December 8, 2013. The annual Christmas Inn Tour was held from 2-6 p.m. while a beautiful fluffy snow covered the area bringing attendees holiday spirit to the surface as they toured the exquisitely adorned Bed and Breakfasts and Inns of the area.

Lanesboro, the Bed and Breakfast Capital of Minnesota, offers a self-guided tour where ticket holders can tour any of the businesses included in whichever order they prefer and spend as much time at each as they would like. This year’s Christmas Inn Tour included eight different Bed and Breakfasts, Inns, a resort, and Art Lofts. The participating businesses offered drawings for lodging stays for lucky winners who signed up along the tour. Refreshments and assorted treats were offered to tour guests as well.

Stone Mill Hotel and Suites opened the doors of the building which was built in 1885 and is owned by Colleen Lamon. The business has 11 themed rooms and each seemed to have a touch of the holiday spirit. Mr. and Mrs. Claus (Doug and Jan Baker) were on hand to greet visitors as they walked in. Free wine tasting was offered compliments of Scenic Valley Winery of Lanesboro. The adjoining gift shop was also open for anyone wishing to shop for holiday gifts or a little something for themselves.

The Scandinavian Inn Bed and Breakfast, owned by Peter and Vicki Torkelson, had “a lot of people” come through on the tour according to Vicki who stated, “A bus load of people had just left,” but it had been very manageable throughout the day. The Scandinavian Inn was decorated simply but beautifully with items such as handmade edible ornaments on the tree. The Inn and each of its five guest rooms felt like a home away from home making it a comfortable choice for a getaway.

Berwood Hill Inn Bed and Breakfast was built in 1873 and began as a Bed and Breakfast in 1998 by Fran Scibora who lived in the house as a child. The home is three levels that seem to go on forever with interesting things to look at in every direction. Deb Meyer, innkeeper, lives in the house and tends to guests’ needs. Meyer said that four people decorated the trees at the Berwood Hill Inn, but the owner made the decisions as to how they would be decorated. Meyer stated that she gets awesome guests at the Berwood Hill Inn which she enjoys. Fran Scibora’s brother, Larry Berland .....
