welcome to Cyclin-inn in beautiful Whalan, Minnesota. I am
Tammy Hughes, the proprietor of the Cyclin-inn. I am
originally from Duluth, Minnesota and have been migrating south
ever since I became old enough to explore Minnesota. After
spending 15 years in the Twin Cities, and escaping every weekend
to go biking, kayaking, or horseback riding, I decided that I
should make my move a bit further south. With the Root
River / Root River State Bicycle Trail being the draw, I began
searching for my dream property. In discovering Lanesboro
with its majestic bluffs and scenic views, I fell in love.
In 2001, I found my little haven in Whalan, just 4 miles east of
During the first
year, I was in love again with Litefoot. He is a half Belgium
and half Appaloosa draft / riding horse. Living on the outskirts
of the small community of Whalan, he quickly moved in. Now
I have 4 smaller horses, actually miniatures. Lucy, King
Harvey and George. How delightful my overgrown yard pets are.
So in the mean
while, I created the Cyclin-inn. Allowing you to enjoy the
peacefulness of the small community and the great outdoor
scenery right out the door on the Root River, On the Root River
State Bicycle Trail. Please enjoy my home and treat it as
your own. You will find all the comforts of home and more.
The Cyclin-inn is located on the Root River State Bicycle Trail,
on the Root River and within a block of two city parks, and
Gator Greens Mini Golf. Whalan has the world famous Pie
shop where you can eat, and an
outfitter within walking distance where you can rent a
bike, kayak, tube, or even a canoe. Within a few blocks,
you can connect with Bluff Country's Jeep Tours, and even take a
horse drawn sleigh or wagon ride.
