Lanesboro would be perfect.

Winona's looking kind of seedy lately, though it used to be nice. Just IMHO.

Be careful if you consider the part year thing also.

Minnesota made changes in 2016, and will now demand full year taxes for some part year residents.

Default Rochester, it is

Because of health needs, we've settled on Rochester, MN. Still very physically active, but bad knees land me in rehab from time to time. Rochester seems to provide the best blend of access to care, access to the great outdoors, easy transport options to surrounding cities if you don't want to drive, and reasonable access to good food/ arts/ wineries/ theater. Plus there is canoeing both south and north of the town. Plus the Douglas rail-trail is a real enticement! THanks all!

I think you should really consider some urban areas of the Twin Cities-- if you lived close to the Grand Rounds system in Minneapolis, you'd be near miles of bike trails, lakes and some creeks(i.e. Minnehaha Creek), urban forests, and lots of arts offerings!

I personally find Winona to be somewhat tired and run down. Even despite the university presence, it doesn't particularly feel like a vibrant place. I will say, however, that the nature and topography surrounding the town is very beautiful.
