Fun Midwest Spring Getaways
Weekends on the farm
Comfortable B&Bs like Natures Nest in Montrose, Minnesota, offer the charm of a weekend on the farm—without the work. (Unless, of course, you want to help gather eggs!) At Natures Nest, busy hands and minds come to rest. This whimsical farmhouse B&B is all about relaxation (35 miles west of Minneapolis). Two private suites have comfortable beds and refreshing cross breezes. In the garden, a hanging bed with a soft comforter invites afternoon naps. For a rustic "spa" treatment, guests soak in side-by-side claw-foot tubs in an adorable gazebo where lanterns glow after dark. Organic breakfasts include buttery eggs with asparagus, Gruyère and freshly snipped chive flowers.
