traveler reviews for this lanesboro house rental

Three couples first bike trip together

Review submitted: August 12, 2014   Date of arrival: August 8, 2014

First time at the Cyclin Inn and not the last. Had a great time. Easy access to the Root River Trail. Sitting on the front porch you can watch bicyclist on the trail, deer walking around, birds flying by and not a single mosquito bite. Tammy and Duane were very kind and helpful but didn't intrude. The accomodations were great.

Awesome Family Vacation

Review submitted: July 24, 2013   Date of arrival: July 17, 2013

My family had a wonderful vacation at Cyclin-Inn. The home was clean, spacious, and well-equiped. It was handy having two full baths. We especially enjoyed the porch. It was a wonderful spot for our morning coffee and family conversations. From the porch we could see bikers traveling on the bike trail as well as deer, rabbits, and other wildlife. The huge yard was a perfect place for yard games. We were also pleasantly surprised to find a miniature pony and her baby near by. It was very quiet and tranquil.

The cyclin-Inn and small town of Whalen offered something for everyone. The bike trail goes right through town in front of the Aroma Pie Shop, which is a favorite stop for bikers. We sampled quite a few flavors. We also enjoyed biking to the next town for some shopping and sight-seeing. The river was great. Family members went fishing as well canoeing and kayaking. We all enjoyed the horse-drawn wagon ride through the bluffs with Tammy and Duane.

We enjoyed our vacation very much. Tammy and Duane were helpful and pleasant. We all hated to leave and would like to go back for another vacation.

Thanks for wonderful vacation!

Review submitted: June 30, 2013   Date of arrival: June 15, 2013

Thank you, Tammy and Duane, for a most wonderful two-week vacation! The Cyclin-Inn provided easy access to the Root River State Trail for our bicycling to Lanesboro, Peterson, Rushford, and Preston. We saw outstanding views of Root River Valley, deer, turkey, squirrels, turtles, and birds. Your two-person Jacuzzi provided relaxation at the end of the day.

In addition to bicycling, we completed four quilt projects and started a new one. Cyclin-Inn’s dining area was ideal for setting up a quilting area with sewing machine and fabric cutting. This was also plenty of space for an ironing board to press projects. One project needed more fabric, and we were pleased to hear about Red-Roxy Quilt Co. in Decorah, Iowa, just a 30-mile drive from Whalan. Red-Roxy Quilt Co. is shopping bliss for experienced and new quilters looking for fabric, notions, patterns, and helpful hints. Moda Marble and Kona cotton fabrics were purchased to complete projects. Cyclin-Inn’s washer and dryer came in handy for those of us quilters who prefer to launder fabric before cutting.

While driving to Decorah, we saw Amish farmers working in fields with their teams of horses. Several farms have colorful wooden quilt blocks decorating their barns.

A most memorable part of our stay was sitting on Cyclin-Inn’s front porch watching Black Betty mothering her new-born colt. Willie of Whalan was born just hours before our arrival.

The Aroma Pie Shoppe of Whalan is a favorite dessert stop. Vacation favorites included Blubarb (blueberry and rhubarb), Apple-Cranberry-Walnut, and Peach Blueberry.

We appreciate you giving us an evening tour of the area to see the breathtaking beautiful views of the bluffs and also introduce us to your horses. Jim was thrilled to catch a Brown Trout at one of the local fishing holes. Having wireless Internet connection allowed us to stay in contact with office co-workers, and hometown neighbors and family.

This is our second stay at Cyclin-Inn. We are already planning a return visit during 2014. Vacationing just doesn’t get any better than this!
