Wondering where to stay? Let me help since there are a couple of options.
First, for the campers:
My yard is open. These will go fast and I'll keep you updated as to whether there are any left right here >>> (12 left)
There may be a couple of other yards being offered in the area (easy walking distance from my house). These spots will be in the yards of my friends. If you find yourself in one of these spots, please be respectful...they're giving you a free place to lay your head. If you're interested in these spots, let me know (via email). I will keep the tally for these spots right here.
Spot #1 >>> ()
Spot #2 >>> ()
For the hotelers:
The start/finish is at the high school in Spring Valley. There is a hotel there and they may still have rooms available.
Otherwise there are still rooms available in Rochester. Here are a few places that I might suggest.
Guesthouse International - (call for rate) - 507-288-9090 - LINK.
Up the street a bit (5 blocks) are two other larger properties.
Courtyard - (call for rate) - 507-536-0040 - LINK
SpringHill - (call for rate) - 507-281-5455 - LINK
Both of these are relatively new hotels and are very nice. The benefit to these two is their proximity to a Caribou Coffee shop and a breakfast place called the Canadian Honker.
Questions? Let me have 'em.
