I am from Preston originally, so was familiar with the town and where this was located. I booked this location with my husband and our kids. The space we got was amazing. It was really just like staying in a 2 bedroom apartment for the weekend! Other family members stayed down the hall from us as well. The owners are... More

So, we stayed here as a family while taking part in some of the things to do in the area - bike riding, the caves, etc. Don't expect luxury. You'll get decently decorated rooms in a quiet place. It's an old school building that has been converted into hotels. It feels a little odd going downstairs and entering a classroom... More

This is quiet, extremely clean, basic rooms done very well, and about 20 yards from the Root River bike route. I strongly recommend it if you are in the area. The inn has two parts, we stayed in the motel-like part which is what I have described here.

We usually stay in Lanesboro but it was full up the w/e we went, so we turned to Preston. It happened to be a good thing because the Trailhead Inn is a great value ($129) for the space. Continental breakfast included (toast, muffins, yogurt, juice/coffee/milk, waffle maker). Although for summer if you plan to tube down the Root River, Lanesboro... More

We primarily booked this hotel based on its location to Mystery and Niagara Caves. We were also interested in the trails, as we've never visited this area before. There were no surprises at the Trailhead Inn. The website did a pretty good job in describing the amenities and the rooms were spacious and clean. The rooms each had their own... More

We were in the main Motel, not the Suites. Nice clean room for $100 on a weekend. The woman on the phone, and the guy working the night we stayed were both friendly and helpful. Microwave, LARGE mini-fridge, everything in the bathroom worked and was spotless, good A/C unit (a touch loud, but that can't be helped.) There's spare blankets... More

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...
