Groups and Meetings
Small town, small meetings, big results!
Mix business with pleasure… invigorating outdoor activities and rich artistic experiences.
Set in the valley surrounded by limestone bluffs, amongst the meandering Root River, located along the Historic Bluff Country Scenic Byway, Lanesboro is a community with exceptional natural scenery and outdoor recreation. Within this setting you are given plentiful options and a unique approach to top-notch meetings and group gatherings.
Much of Lanesboro’s charm rests in that we do not have large franchise hotels, or mega convention centers. The experience we provide is a campus approach. When you hold your meeting or gathering in Lanesboro, you are able to experience ALL Lanesboro has to offer and you are not subject to just one venue. It has been said “Lanesboro does not have one huge venue or all-inclusive resort, but the businesses are connected in such a fashion that Lanesboro is an all-inclusive resort in itself”. This provides businesses the opportunities to work together and you benefit from getting the complete Lanesboro package.
Lanesboro’s campus-style properties and amenities can best accommodate small meetings and gatherings up to 125 participants. Let the Lanesboro Area Chamber of Commerce do your planning.
Contact the Chamber of Commerce at firstname.lastname@example.org or 507-467-2696 to help you make your next meeting or gathering produce big results, in a small town.
