Not many people venture to Peterson, but choose to stay in Lanesboro instead. I didn't even know there was a B&B in Peterson until now. We stayed at the Wenneson for one night. Pam, the owner, was very accomodating and very friendly. We were in the Coachman Room, which was beautifully decorated, very clean and very roomy. The B&B is literally 50 feet from the bike trail and you can keep your bikes in their locked garage. This is away from the hubbub of Lanesboro. I would HIGHLY recommend this B&B to anyone who wants to get away from it all.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Andor Wenneson Inn was built in 1904 along the tracks of the Southern Minnesota Railroad, now the beautiful Root River State Trail. Built by businessman W. Andor Wenneson, the hotel served rail travelers coming through Peterson for many years. The building changed hands several times, also serving as a boarding house and eventually as apartments. It then sat empty for about ten years. In 1994, it was completely restored and renovated to its historical beauty and charm. In 2001, the carriage house was built into four more rooms, making a total of nine rooms in the Inn. Each room is complete with a private bath available for guests, including two with whirlpool tubs. The third-floor suite has two bedrooms and a sitting room; with elegant dormers and window seats overlooking the courtyard and bluffs. ... more less
