THE SCENIC ROOT RIVER
We are located on the Main Branch of the Root River with access to 5 canoe landings between Lanesboro and Peterson. Our section of the Main Branch Root River is very tranquil, with a sandy bottom that is great for wading or hanging out on sand bars. This meandering float through the beautiful Root River Valley is a refreshing and joyous adventure for all ages.
Our love of great food inspired us to create a simple menu with locally produced ingredients. We combine the fast service of flatbread pizzas, paninis, and salads with the premium ingredients found in the Driftless Region of Minnesota and Wisconsin.
