We stayed in the renovated school. There was 3 of us so having 2 bedrooms and a living room gave us space to spread out. I'm glad we check in when it was daylight and not dark out. It was a little confusing finding the building and where to park. The room were quiet, we didn't hear anyone else in... More

We stayed in the renovated schoolhouse (suite). Great space, small town friendliness and service. Need something - just ask. A little school history in placards by rooms. 1/2 block from downtown. Character in the hallway seating areas, hot tub, Beautiful area of the state and bike trail is adjacent to facility. Many sights within a 15 minute drive.

We spent a couple of nights here while meeting friends for biking. Units are pretty plain but large and well equipped for the price. Enjoyed the deck to sit and relax outside. Nice attraction of Amish wagon selling their wares outside the property.

This review pertains only to east-most portion of the Trailhead Inn along the bike trail...a row of ten motel-like rooms. First the negatives: small TV, weak/slow Wi-Fi, paucity of nearby restaurants. The good: nice, spacious deck in front of rooms, plentiful parking, immediate access to bike trail (north to Lanesboro; south to Harmony), rooms are quiet, comfortable, clean, up-to-date, and...

Very spacious. Great for a fishing weekend with friends. Big kitchen, living room, bedrooms. Great value. Looking forward to my next stay. Space for bike storage inside if you don't want to lock it outside.

Stayed 2 nights in February. Detention hall is a big room. Small fridge and only 2 burners. Don't bring too much food or plan to cook much at one time. Jacuzzi did not work. We started to fill up the tub and used all the hot water in the building apparently. Had to wait 15 minutes to get more hot... More

Stayed 4 nights in 2 bedroom suite Room 209. Positives are the big room, the space, the nice full kitchen with wooden table/4 chairs and counter space. The access to the trail is great for my husband the cyclist. He also enjoyed the hot tub and sauna on same floor. The negative in this particular room are the couch and... More

We stay at the Trailhead 2-3 times each summer/fall. Being right on the trail is a beautiful thing ... not having to ride through trafffic or transport our bikes to the trail is priceless! Sure, the motel is older, but upgrades are being accomplished all the time. Sure, there's a pet fee, but that's the price you pay to travel... More

The Trailhead Inn sits right on the Root River Trail in Preston, MN, making it an ideal location for bicyclists. This is a basic bed-and-shower kind of room, just right for people who are there to bike the trails. The motel has a wide deck running the full length of the building, and there are patio tables and deck chairs... More

This was our first trip to the Root River Trail area and it was a wonderful experience! We spent four nights at the Trailhead Inn in one of the two bedroom suites in the old renovated school! It was just great: quiet with a comfortable bed, a full kitchen, fresh fluffy linens, and a hot tub room right across the... More
