I stayed here for five nights as part of a Road Scholar biking tour. This turned out to be a great choice for myself and the group. I had my own room with one bed. The room was clean, neat and pleasant. I had no concerns other than the walls seemed a little thin as I could hear the people in the next room. I cannot comment on the price of the room as it was part of the tour price. Our group had breakfast in the common room each morning and the breakfast was always varied and quite good. Not a large number of offerings, but enough for a decent breakfast. The breakfasts during the week consisted of pancakes, waffles, nut breads, muffins, baked oatmeal, french toast, cereals, yogurt, fruit, etc. The Cottage House Inn is family owned and the innkeeper Lynn was quite pleasant and welcoming to our group. I could not get coverage for my Iphone during this week due to limitations in this area. There is a phone in the main sitting area that guests can use to call long distance free of charge. I thought this was a nice plus to staying in this lodging. The Inn also has a conference room which is a nice gathering place for groups. The location of the Inn is also very nice. Located close to the Root River Trail, restaurants, shops and right across the street from the Commonweal Theater. Lanesboro is a great town and a wonderful destination for travelers. Bikers will love the Root River Trail, an exceptional, long and scenic paved trail that winds along the Root River and through forests, farmlands and small towns. The Commonweal Theater is a great theater company for such a small town. The quality of the plays, talent of the actors and facility will amaze you. Be sure to take a walk around Lanesboro as the town is pretty and historic and is surrounded by forest covered bluffs. The fall colors on the bluffs and around the town were wonderful. There are 13 B & B's here as well as other historic homes to see. There is a dam with waterfall at the end of the town, across from the park. If you walk up to Church Hill you will see two beautiful churches and have great views of the town below. The small Lanesboro Museum is worth a stop as well with interesting and unusual historic exhibits from the area. We ate at several great restaurants including Intermission (across the street), the Old Town Hall and Pedal Pushers. I would highly recommend Lanesboro and the Cottage House Inn!
