Visit Avian Acres

Avian Acres was a popular stop for many when visiting gorgeous southeastern Minnesota with its towering limestone bluffs, popular paved bike trail, and beautiful Root River! We were located just outside the charming town of Lanesboro on a historic Scandinavian farm. The serenity of our rural setting was especially enjoyable while watching the antics of colorful songbirds feasting at busy feeders. In the renovated century old barn you discovered a unique general store atmosphere filled with an awesome array of backyard birding products. With choices of fresh seed mixes, hundreds of feeders, attractive bird houses, yardware, gifts, and much more. Plus, expert advice on product options, attraction techniques, and habitat design. Our “Brick and Mortar” Store is history however the same great products continue to be available by Home Delivery, Metro Pick-Up and Shipping!

Bluff Country Attractions

While a visit to Avian Acres was surely a great reason to visit Southeastern Minnesota’s Bluff Country, there are still many other very good excuses if you need them. Located in an area known for its hardwood forests and beautiful scenery, people also come for some of the most simple pleasures: locally-baked pies and other culinary delights, a potpourri of unique gift and antique shops, a variety of outdoor and family-fun activities including biking, birding, geocaching, fishing, tubing, canoeing and kayaking on the Root River, turkey and deer hunting, art galleries, Amish tours, historic sites, B&B’s, and just plain friendly people.

Likely the two best-known of the local attractions are the National Historic Bluff Country Scenic Byway and the Root River Trail. The Scenic Byway is a self-guided 88-mile driving tour through the heart of the Bluff Country. The Byway passes quiet farmland, rivers, and charming small-town America. It roughly parallels the well-used forty two plus mile paved Root River Trail, which can be accessed at many of the villages and towns along the Byway.

Whether you’re looking for a quiet retreat or an action-packed trip, a day’s getaway or a longer vacation, you can still visit delightful destinations in Southeastern Minnesota.
