March is keeping us very busy trying to keep our inn ready for travelers and getting our vineyards pruned for the upcoming spring. Wading around in hip-deep snow is plenty challenging but we know in a few short weeks things will be greeining up and we will all forget these snowy days.

Don’t you just love the smell of fresh-roasted coffee when you first open the new bag? Well, Cedar Rose Inn now boasts it’s own fresh roast coffee! Staight from the roaster, a 24 hour degassing, and it is in your mug for that early morning pleasure while swinging on the porch!
We purchase the green beans from some really special places—like Boquette,Panama and Costa Rica and Berundi, Africa and roast it daily in our special little roaster just for you. Just a little perk to make your stay a little more enjoyable while at our inn. And like many of our guests say already….I never knew coffee could taste so good!!!
Good News! The Roof is done and we just restored and refinished the hardwood floors on the main floor of Cedar Rose Inn. They are both beautiful! And to celebrate, we are offering a FREE bottle of Wine during the months of February and March to any guests coming to our inn! Besides, it is a very special because, the wine is made exclusively from our 2011 Vintage grapes at Cedar Rose Wild Vineyards. Carlos Creek Winery made a special exclusive White Marquette from our grapes this year and have just bottled and released it for enjoyment. Our white wines from our own cellar are also ready and we think they are very special also. Come and celebrate!
The grape harvest was plentiful, the inn has been decorated for Christmas, and as we write, the roof is being re-shingled. What else could one ask for? After a wonderful busy summer and so many nice guests, we had a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.
So as you prepare for Christmas, take a break when you can….and maybe come shop exciting downtown Alex.
Momma Roberta left so you could get a peak of our naked bodies. Our mouths are big for a reason….so we can eat some of those delicious morsels that mom brings us from the Cedar Rose Inn compound. We plan to leave as soon as we get our wings or the innkeeper kicks us out. Before that happens, come and enjoy a little close-up birdwatching before breakfast or an evening of relaxation on the porch swing.
Roberta Robin has returned for her annual visit again this year…..and like last year, she arrived, made her own bed, and never offered to pay…but she didn’t demand breakfast and offered to sing for her room. She also offered to great other human guests as they arrived, provided they didn’t get closer than 5 feet. Since her bedroom is on the front porch and without walls, what else could you expect? While there, she decided to give birth to three new hatchlings and is asking if they can be included in the free board. After one look into her neat bed, we decided she could stay as long as she continues to sing and her male friend keeps bringing in his share of the inroom breakfasts. Are we being too kind?
U-Haul announced Friday, the release of it’s latest new supergraphic, and to our surprize, it is all about the Kensington Runestone. The huge image of the stone and Viking ship will be displayed on 2300 new U-Haul vans traveling the US and challenges viewers to learn more about this mysterious discovery that occurred in the Alexandria area. The stone is housed at our wonderful Runestone Museum just a few blocks from the Cedar Rose Inn. Come and join in the festivities on Memorial Day weekend as U-Haul unveils it’s latest version at the “Awake the Lakes Annual Breakfast” at the museum on Saturday morning. Enjoy this real treasure of Minnesota right here in our hometown!
