The Old Barn Resort is proud to announce 25 years in business in 2015


Mon, Apr 6th, 2015
Posted in Lanesboro Features

The Old Barn Resort, located between Preston and Lanesboro, Minn., was established in 1990 and has grown in size and amenities offered ever since.

The resort’s namesake, the large 4-story barn, also celebrates 130 years in existence. It was built in 1885 by Edward Allis, founder of Allis-Chalmers. The barn is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The fame of the Old Barn began when the founder of the Allis-Chalmers Manufacturing Company (modern day AGCO) purchased the farmland where the Old Barn now stands. The timber frame posts, still visible today in the restaurant, were shipped in on railcars on a former rail line, which is now the famous adjacent Root River State Trail. For more details and history, please visit www.BarnResort.com/About.htm.

The 200-acre Old Barn Resort features a 276-site campground, hostel, restaurant and bar, 18-hole golf course with cart and club rentals, and an indoor/outdoor pool all conveniently located on the property. The Resort is located on the Root River State Bike Trail, as well as the South Branch of the Root River. The resort also offers its facilities for groups of any sort as well as onsite catering opportunities in the barn’s restaurant for up to 250 people.

The Old Barn Resort staff invite you celebrate these milestones with them beginning Friday, March 27, 2015 when the Resort opens for the 2015 “BARN-iversary” season!
