Although the citizens of Fillmore County are awaiting a couple of inches of snow to get them into the holiday spirit, the bed and breakfast owners and inn keepers in Lanesboro kicked off the festive season with the annual Lanesboro Christmas Inn Tour on Sunday, December 2. A total of eleven elaborately decorated establishments were featured in this year’s tour with several hundred visitors viewing the homes.

Tour participants kicked off the day’s tour at the Commonweal Theatre at 11 a.m. for a presentation on Lanesboro’s history and the featured inns and bed and breakfasts located on the tour. Catherine Glynn led the presentation at the Commonweal which focused on the development of Lanesboro, the architecture of the inns, and the history of the original owners of the establishments.

Beginning at 2 p.m., tour participants began their self-guided holiday adventure to the eleven different locations throughout Lanesboro and the surrounding area, as two of the locations were outside of the city limits. From Victorian styled homes to farmhouses and even more modern styles, the eleven locations in this year’s tour were: the 1898 Inn, Anna V’s B&B, the Art Lofts located above the Lanesboro Art Center, the Berwood Hill Inn, the Fillmore House, the Habberstad House, Hillcrest Hide-Away, the Historic Scanlan House, the Inn at Sacred Clay Farm, the Scandinavian Inn, and Stone Mill Suites.

The participating owners of the inns enjoy sharing their homes with the public in addition to sharing the interesting stories of the past that occurred within the walls. Each location also brought something unique to the tour this year, whether it was a distinctive decorative theme, delectable edible treats, or even live musicians bringing joyful sounds throughout the hallways and bedrooms. One example is Peter and Vicki Torkelson’s theme of being environmentally friendly and decorating with artificial green decorations and livening up the tree with various fruits and cookies. In the Fillmore House each room spoke Christmas greetings with an array of décor. The 1898 shared a variety of elegant snacks for guests. And in addition to much, much more, within the Inn at Sacred Clay Farm, one could take in the beauty of a giant Christmas tree within the high, open ceilings.

After weeks of planning and hours of preparation, this year’s Lanesboro Christmas Inn Tour set the tone for the festive, celebratory holiday seaso .....
