Enjoy the great outdoors as much as the unique indoor space when staying at the Pedal and Paddle Inn. Located steps from the state bike trail and Root River, inside you will find an eclectically decorated space with equipped kitchen, 3/4 bathroom, and a combination queen bedroom and living area with vaulted ceilings. After a fun day on the river or trail, come home to relax in the screened deck, by the fire pit, play some pool, or put your feet up on the couch.

The space
The Pedal and Paddle Inn has central heat and a window AC unit with ceiling fans. The house provides you with a fully equipped kitchen including stove, oven, refrigerator, and coffee maker as well as glass and plastic dish and cup options when you want to take food and drink outside. The property is accessible as the driveway is the same level as the entrance to the front door. The bathroom includes a corner stall shower, hair dryer, hand soap and thirsty towels. There are no grab bars, and the toilet is a standard 15" toilet. Toiletries available upon request. The bedroom and living space includes a queen-sized bed, closet, large couch, entertainment center with sound system, massive movie collection, dart board and pool table. You will find the comforts of home inside as much as outside. Outside includes a screened-in seating area, gas grill with tools, fire ring, boat house for storing your bikes or to borrow our kayaks, life jackets, paddles, tubes, air compressor and yard games. The boat house contains an upstairs sleeping loft accessible via ladder stairs and has a queen bed with fans and a small window as there is no HVAC. Please contact me if you want to have more than two people stay. Come pedal, paddle and relax in Preston!

Guest access
Guests will be able to access the main house, the outdoor spaces including screened deck, the boat house (to store your bikes or borrow our kayaks, paddles, life jackets, air compressor & tubes), and a storage chest that houses outdoor games.

Other things to note
Please remember to check the MN DNR website for any trail or river closures.

Covid-19 Update on 7/3/20: Here is what we are doing to practice safety and cleanliness at the Pedal and Paddle Inn. We have blocked one day pre and post a reservation to allow for more time to clean and disinfect. We are constantly reading updates from the CDC, MN Department of Health, AirBnB and other sources to ensure we are up to date on hosting and cleaning recommendations. We are removing unnecessary linens, like throw pillows, per recommendations. We will send you self check-in instructions before arrival to have a contact-less check-in. We are disinfecting all high touch items such as counters, light switches, door knobs, keys and more. Most restaurants in Preston and the surrounding area are open and providing take-out as well as indoor and outdoor dining. We ask that if you get sick before arrival, please cancel your reservation - we have no penalties if you cancel up to one day prior to arrival. We also ask that you continue to practice the guidelines of social distancing, wearing masks in indoor public spaces like our town's grocery store, and alerting us after your stay if you were to be diagnosed with Covid-19. By working together, we can help each other put our safety and health first.

I am a native Prestonian who moved back to the beautiful bluff country of southeastern Minnesota after living in St. Paul, MN, and Nashville, TN. I grew up in the hospitality business working at my family's Inn and later worked in various roles at a large convention hotel in Nashville, TN. My life's adventures include raising goats and sheep, working at Yellowstone National Park, serving as an AmeriCorps*VISTA member, and being a mom. I am an avid gardener, raising fruits and vegetables for my family, friends and neighbors. Some of my favorite travels have been to Jekyll Island, GA, Florence, Italy, Gjovik, Norway, and New Mexico. We are all citizens of the world first and foremost, and therefore we should treat each other as neighbors. Come stay in Preston and be our neighbor in the beautiful driftless region!
