A Great Year for Bluffscape Amish Tours

It is hard to believe that our Amish Tours are winding down for the season. We have now transitioned to just Saturdays in November. If there is a group of more than four that would like a special tour during the week, I would be glad to take you on a tour (weather permitting). I miss visiting with our Amish friends already and it has only been a week! The picture above shows the location of our tours at the Feed Mill where Cheryl’s Apparel and Tours and Treasures are located.

We have been fortunate to have such beautiful weather in Lanesboro this fall. Hopefully, it will continue throughout the winter, but this is Minnesota and you never know what the weather will be like tomorrow!
The Amish have been busy chopping and stacking wood for this winter. They are good to get together and help family members and friends accomplish this goal. Amish use wood buring stoves for cooking and baking and for heating their homes and shops. Some Amish may use coal burning stoves as well.

A new Amish bed and breakfast is opening near Canton right on our tour route. A non-Amish purchased an Amish farm and hired an Amish lady to work at the B & B. If you are wanting to live like the Amish for a night or two, you will have to check it out. When I find out more information about the B & B, I’ll post it.


Gallery Closing – Amish Tours Still Operating

After much consideration and mixed emotions, we are closing Bluffscape Gallery & Gifts. Your past patronage and support is greatly appreciated. It has truly been a pleasure working with artists and being surrounded by such creativity everyday at work. We currently have a discount on all items in the Gallery. Consigned art is 15% off and the gift items are 20% off now until December 22. Starting January 4th more markdowns will be made. Closing date is January 23, 2010.

Display shelving, print bins, art display towers, some framing supplies, and miscellaneous items will be sold. A custom-made L-shaped checkout counter is also available for sale measuring 10 feet long by 34 inches wide, the short end is 44 inches long by 32 inches wide. It has a dark gray/slate marble-look laminate top. If anyone is remodeling a basement, it would make a great counter or bar.

Bluffscape Amish Tours will be located at the Feed Mill, 102 E. Beacon St. downtown Lanesboro. Same great tour, same friendly, knowledgeable guides; just a different ticketing and departure location. Telephone, E-mail, and Website address will also stay the same. The ladies at Lanesboro Tours and Treaures and Cheryl’s Apparel located in the Feed Mill will be able to help you with your reservation needs. Eric, Vern, Dave and myself will still be guiding the tours. We look forward to serving you in 2010 from our new location!! Tours will start again March 6th, Saturdays only in March at 10 am and 1:30 pm. Regular tours will operate April – October, Monday – Saturday 10 am and 1:30 pm. It is always a good idea to call ahead for your reservation, as some days seats fill up fast. See you on the tour!
