Winter Get Away

4.8 on March 10, 2014

We went to Lanesboro for the perfect winter get away. The cross country skiing was fantastic, best day of the year for that. The accommodations here were perfect too. Carol and Marv were excellent hosts. Our room was very clean, quiet. Very romantic with the electric fireplace. The room had a wine opener and wine glasses. At breakfast we talked and learned about Carol and Marv. The breakfast was very good, the bread and coffee at our door at 7:00 was great. We will definitely come back here. We are planning on a summer trip now.

We have stayed in several B&Bs in Lanesboro. They are all wonderful, each with their own unique character. This particular B&B is off the main street approximately 3 blocks. The rooms are very clean and breakfast was very good. The home allows the guests to "relive" the craftsman house lifestyle.

My 3rd time here, just love it

4.8 on October 17, 2013

I've been back 3 times because they not only have great lodging and food, but the atmosphere is wonderful - altogether, it's the best B&B I've been to. So much to do in Lanesboro too. We love Marv & Carol!
