Why Alexandria?

We have seen a dramatic increase in traffic in Alexandria this summer–no traffic jams though! So why are people coming to Alexandria Minnesota? In questioning our guests at Cedar Rose Inn, we find that many people have converted their yearly travel plans to short , local discovery, road trips to outer Minnesota and are loving it. Not only are they relaxing, but also educational, fun and low cost. So check it out! There are many interesting events, tours, and just plain great escapes just waiting for you. And while you’re at it, come stay with us and maybe take the tour of our vineyards and see the beautiful color change (called verasion) that has just begun which signals the first signs of autumn harvest just around the corner.
