The 2012 Lanesboro Christmas Inn Tour was held once again here in Lanesboro on Sunday, December 2. The 2013 Lanesboro Inn Tour will be held Sunday, December 8. The 2012 tour was a huge success, with 471 tickets sold to those who wanted to see the participating lodging offerings in Lanesboro, all decked out for the holidays. Our home was decorated outside with fresh garland, wreaths and red bows, and featured our Christmas tree lit up on the front porch, complete with hand-crocheted ornaments. We had live musicians playing Christmas music while guests toured throughout the house.
