Conveniently located on Hwy 210 in Carlton, MN, just 3 miles off I-35,
right on the Willard Munger Trail near Jay Cooke State Park.

Gearing Up For Spring

OK, by now you've noticed we're having a long winter. We have no control over that. But we can certainly begin stirring the pot as regards things to do when Big Sun begins to beam with serious springtime force.

In a world of virtual everything, it really is nice to know there are places and spaces where you can have a real breeze flowing through your hair as you zip along on the real Munger Trail.

We'd like to remind you once again that we not only rent bikes, but we rent "discs" for the local Disc Golf Course a mile from our little town on the edge of Paradise. There's actually plenty more to do here than meets the eye as CBR also has an art gallery along with art lessons from time to time, courtesy Art Dimensions, Joelene Steffens framing business. Art Dimensions is just one of many A-Team businesses here. As time permits we'd also like to tell you more about the Oldenburg House, a bed and breakfast that  is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This remarkably beautiful place is but walking distance from our spot on the map, or a three minute bike-hike.

In fact this Thursday, May 9, the Oldenburg House will be hosting an intimate piano concert featuring premiere pianist Eric Himy. To learn more about this event and purchase tickets, click here.

Trivia: Did you know that Jay Cooke State Park was created by land donated to the State of Minnesota by the Oldenburgs?

We still more wonders nearby including hiking trails, kayaking, fishing, whitewater rafting and more. Visit soon and live a little! Minnesota starts here.

The Disc Golf Course a mile away is good exercise and lots of fun.
Thank you, Jesse, for these photos that so remind us it's time for spring.
