Top 20 Small Towns to Visit in 2020

What are the top 20 small towns to visit in 2020?  Well, there's Moab and Eureka Springs and Carmel-by-the Sea and...Lindsborg!


MSN Lifestyle published the following recently online: 

Want to visit Sweden but can't swing a trip to Europe? Then plan a trip to 
Lindsborg, Kansas, which is the next best thing.

Also known as "Little Sweden, USA," the town was settled in the spring of 1869 by a group of Swedish immigrants from the Värmland province of Sweden.

Unlike many other immigrant-founded towns, Lindsborg has managed to hold onto its Swedish roots, especially during its many festivals throughout the year like 
Våffeldagen (international waffle day), Svensk Hyllningsfest (a festival celebrating Swedish culture) and Millfest.

Make the time to visit the 
1904 Swedish Pavilion, which was moved to Lindsborg after the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair and is now on the National Register of Historic Places.

Live out your childhood dollhouse fantasies at the 
Rosberg House, a beautiful Victorian Queen Anne home built in 1885 that now operates as a bed and breakfast (and Lindsborg Vacation Rentals, of course!).  

While in town, eat at the 
Swedish Crown, where you can try traditional Swedish dishes. Here's the shocking truth about Swedish meatballs.

February 5th is #bookdirect day!

Today is #BookDirect Day

When guests #bookdirect, they save $$$!
Here's why!

  • When guests book on large vacation rental websites like Airbnb, VRBO and TripAdvisor, they are paying substantial fees to use these sites.
  • Many of the best homes are not listed on these third-party websites.  Lindsborg Vacation Rentals is listed on Airbnb, but has its own website.
  • We know the properties and the area better than anyone and can better match guests to our apartments and homes so our guests have better vacation experiences.
  • Guests can find out about special offers that cannot be found on the big websites.
  • Because we own these properties, we can better help guests optimize dates and budgets to fit their needs.
  • Guests with special needs and requests can work directly with us in a much more personalized way to guarantee an amazing vacation for their family or group.

Why Travelers Choose Vacation Rentals

Looking for a quick getaway?  
Here's why vacation rentals are ideal!

Short-term accommodation is particularly well suited to three of the key trends forecast for 2020:

• The Rise of 'Micro-vacations'– these are two-, three-, or four-day breaks that are ideal for travelers who use who want a short escape or those looking for unique experiences in 2020.

• Slow Travel – where people spend more than just one night to explore what makes a destination unique and to make 'deeper connections' with the state or region that they live in. Slow travel takes the pressure to tick off all the usual tourist hotspots and emphasizes quality leisure time. Lindsborg Vacation & Executive Rentals promote our community and region, sharing information on our website about what is going on in central Kansas.

Relaxing Retreats – some travelers might enjoy staying in another home for a weekend to escape life's busy-ness.  A couple, family or individual can enjoy a relaxing, even luxurious, experience for a weekend or a few nights.

In the coming weeks, we will be shining a light on other benefits of staying in short-term vacation rentals.

Trees, Wheat and Stones Newsletter

Brand New Mural of Swedish Folk Dancers
 

Mural Celebrates Swedish Folk Dancers
Around the Maypole!

Just a few short weeks ago, a small, but enterprising group of small business owners decided that a mural would be a great addition to downtown Lindsborg.  Less than two weeks later, the muralists from Kansas City completed their creation!

The life-size Swedish folk dancers welcome everyone to take their pictures and share on your favorite social media!  Be sure to include #lbkmurals.  

This mural can be found behind the Visitors Center on North Main Street along on the south side of the parking lot between First Bank Kansas and Lindsborg Nutrition and Under the Cork!

This mural is presented by Lindsborg Vacation Rentals.

Stenhuset - the Swedish stone house
Lindsborg Vacation Rentals Newsletter
"Trees, Wheat and Stones"
Stenhuset

Announcing the newest and oldest short-term vacation rental in Kansas!

Stenhuset was built by Swedish stonemasons in 1877!  That date was chiseled into on the lintels over a window of the oldest house in Lindsborg.  After eighteen months of diligent work, today's modern amenities were seemlessly woven into home's history.

Up to six guests can sleep at Stenhuset: king-size bedroom suite on the lower level, king-size bedroom suite in the loft and a queen-size Murphy bed on the upper level.

Of course, Stenhuset is equipped with a full kitchen and onsite laundry that are exquisitely integrated into its interior.

Curious to know more?  Please visit Lindsborg Vacation Rentals for pictures and information!

In other news, The Vacation Rental Show with Matt Landau, Season 2 will be shown on OSN Living.  Every one of the ten destinations, including Lindsborg, will be shown at least three times.  The episodes can also be streamed from this channel that covers the Middle East and northern Africa.

Stenhuset - Swedish for "the stone house"

Swedish Stone House
Sneak Peek!
 
Sunday, October 6 from 2 to 4 pm

Beginning in early November, Stenhuset will be accepting reservations through www.LindsborgVacationRentals.com and Airbnb.
 
Lindsborg's Swedish Stone House is offering a special sneak peek this coming weekend with an Open House on Sunday, October 6 from 2 to 4 pm at 134 S. Washington St.
 
At first, its owner hesitated to purchase what is now Stenhuset.  "While I hoped this house could be brought back to life, visitors to the Open House will readily see that my contractor, crew and interior designer are experts in their crafts.  Their innovation and expertise will exceed anyone's expectations.  I'm so pleased that Stenhuset is joining its sister vacation rentals in Lindsborg: Trädhuset and Vetehuset."
 
After acquiring this property, the non-historic additions of this house were demolished and hauled away.  Stripping away the plaster on the inside and out revealed its original dark Dakota sandstone blocks, foot-thick walls and carved stone lintels, which are horizontal supports above each window.
 
One of the lintels was carved "1877" confirming that this is the oldest house still standing in Lindsborg. Swedish stonemasons also chiseled floral designs and, more impressively, several Bible verses in "Old Swedish."
