Hidden Jewel in Chatfield

4.2 on June 28, 2014

The Oakenwald Terrace B & B is a gorgeously decorated home (or should we say, mansion) and something to behold. While attractive and spacious looking on the outside, the inside of the home is amazing. We were fortunate to receive a tour from Marion, the owner, and as described on the website, she is a “guide, historian, and storyteller”. The rooms are every bit as lovely and spacious as they appear on the website. The dining room and table are beautifully decorated, and the 3-course breakfast served by Ruth Ann and Bob was wonderful. For any who live near Chatfield, the Oakenwald would be a fantastic setting for a Christmas party or other celebration. You couldn’t go wrong! It would be a treat to return to the Oakenwald.

Relaxing & Calm

Our Anniversary stay was truly enjoyable. The atmosphere was elegant, relaxing and calm. We had a fantastic and very historical tour of the home. The room was spacious and decorated perfectly for the time period. Breakfast was a gourmet delight of several courses, all very well prepared. Looking forward to the Holiday Open House in December. Would definitely stay again.

A wonderful experience!

I would absolutely stay again and intend to. The atmosphere and service were one of a kind and I would recommend you visit as soon as you're able.

Beautiful stroll back into history

A wonderful stay! Gorgeous and perfectly preserved by the owners, who kindly provided a tour and shared with us the rich history of this gracious home. We had a lovely time amid their truly bountiful memories.

What a fine example of the gilded age. My wife and I marveled at the beautiful woodwork and all the antiques that fill every nook and cranny.. Our hosts were warm and welcoming and breakfast was a real treat. We plan to return!

I enjoyed my visit to Oakenwald Terrace. I am not a person who enjoys rooms cluttered full of antiques, though. I felt that this home would be much better served and enjoyed if there were fewer items and pieces of furniture in each room - it seemed more than the rooms could handle. If you have small children that need to touch everything (like normal children!) this place would be too stressful. The home has been redecorated over the years to make it as Victorian as possible -with patterns on every wall, ceiling, and floor. For me, personally, it was too much, but the other advantages to being there made up for it. The breakfasts were delicious and there was plenty of it. The meal presentation was beautiful and artful, set on lovely antique dishes. You really did feel pampered by Ruth Ann. On the last morning I met Ms. Marion Lund, the owner of the home, and she is a treasure. What stories she could tell me about the house and its occupants! I think that I could sit all day listening to her and asking questions, had I had the time. Adults with an interest in history will really enjoy visiting here.

SURPRISE the last on our list is the first on our list.

At the last minute we booked this amazing experience. Only room left in the region of Lansboro. Willing to take what we could get and WOW it was meant to be. The last chance room was the best room in the Lansboro area. Right out of the history books. Could have stayed longer to take it all in.

Great place to stay, museum-like house

Outstanding & Perfect

Absolutely the best Bed & Breakfast in Southern Mn. The Collections were fascinating and exquisite in every way. A huge mansion. Gave a tour threw it ALL. Took hours to go threw. The Hosts were "out of this world". Very Very Warm and Friendly. Treated Guests like family. Hugs and good conversation - from when we came threw the door, to when we regretfully, had to leave. The atmosphere that was in the home was definitely Spirit Filled Experience. Dan & Janet McGovern

About the innkeepers

Between the three inkeepers, we love to talk antiques and collectables, local history and attraction, sports of most any kind... and if our guests are brave enough, politics and religion.
