Plan a Bluffscape Amish Tour in Lanesboro, Minnesota

Now is the perfect time to plan a trip to beautiful Lanesboro, Minnesota.  Be sure to include a tour with us at Bluffscape Amish Tours.  Your tour will depart from Stone Mill Hotel & Suites in Lanesboro to travel the rolling Amish countryside. The Amish are busy working the soil in preparation of their spring planting.  It is always a treat to see the horses pulling a one-bottom plow.  A gentleman on my tour yesterday said it reminded him of his youth as he had to do similar work in their fields years ago.  At the Amish farms we will get the chance to peruse the Amish shops for handmade reed baskets, leather belts, locally made scatter rugs, hand stitched quilts, and much more.  My favorite treat is Emma’s dark chocolate covered cashew crunch–sweet and buttery!  Your guide explains all about the Amish culture and will answer any questions you may have during the tour.

As you can see by the above photo, trout fishing by the Lanesboro dam is a favorite for many folks.  This is a view of the Root River from Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Lanesboro. If the people you are traveling with like to fish and some would rather find something else to do, an Amish tour would be a great way to spend your morning or afternoon!

Bluffscape Amish Tours in Lanesboro, MN

If you are making plans to venture to Lanesboro, Minnesota for a family vacation, a quiet get-away for two, or a day trip with your friends, be sure to include a Bluffscape Amish Tour in your itinerary.  Your Bluffscape guide will take you on a fun, educational tour of our Amish neighbors.  This June you may see the Amish plowing and dragging their fields with their horse-drawn equipment and planting their crops as we are experiencing a late spring with many rain showers, therefore, a later than usual planting is taking place.

With all of this rain we have been having, the grass grows fast and that means lawns need mowing.  A lawn mower some of the Amish use is pictured above.  They hitch up their horse and ride along on their “one-horse mower”!  Otherwise, many Amish use the manual push lawn mower on their yards to cut the grass.
Take a break from your lawn mowing and head to Lanesboro to ride along with Bluffscape Amish Tours located at Stone Mill Hotel & Suites and enjoy munching on sweet, buttery cashew crunch, too.  Now, I better check on my lawn . . .
