Central Minnesota is a great spot for leaf peeping

August 31, 2009 by SpicerCastle

Fall Leaves

Fall into fall

Labor Day is almost upon us, and with it comes shorter days, cooler weather, and outrageous fall color. When you are driving to work on a glorious fall day, do you ever feel the urge to jump out of the car and get into nature? When next that feeling strikes you, give us a call and plan a getaway to our bed and breakfast in central Minnesota.

Nestled in the woods on the shores of Green Lake, our Central Minnesota bed and breakfast is an ideal spot to immerse yourself in the blaze of autumn foliage. On warm days, the water still invites you to take off your shoes and roll up your pants. On chilly days, you just feel like putting on a cozy sweater and heading out into the woods. When you return to our central MN b&b, you can find a warm spot in front of the fireplace to enjoy a book, a cup of tea, or a snuggle.

Guests enjoy strolling the expansive grounds of our lakefront lodging. If you feel more energetic, nearby DNR Glacial Lakes Trail offers over 25 miles of paved trails through the Minnesota woods and prairie lands. This is the place to experience the serene beauty of our region. Though we are a short drive from St. Cloud and Minneapolis/St. Paul, we feel a world away. Don’t hesitate. Plan your getaway today.
