We had a wonderful time. Our hostess Kirsten was very friendly and helpful. We were in the Masquerade room and enjoyed the huge whirlpool and the nice balcony. The breakfast was amazing! Thank you for giving us such a nice stay!

We spent our 35th anniversary celebration at the Scanlon House in Lanesboro, MN. It was a beautiful B&B and we had the Sunrise Suite. The grounds were fantastic and we played cribbage outside on one of the patio tables. The flowers and foliage were unparalleled and well maintained. The room was fantastic with plenty of space, great furniture and classic decorations. The Sunday breakfast was very good and offered a variety of scrumptious selections. The only addition I would recommend would be to have the hostess go to the dining tables and give a short history of the house and its previous inhabitants. It would seem more life-like and give all the guests a reason to tell others about it.

Beautiful summertime destination on the Root River bike trail and scenic canoeing river. Lanesboro has preserved the old town charm but still has a lot to offer like top quality theater and a incredible art gallery. The Scanlan House retains its original charm and has some added amenities like whirlpool tubs and a new, cable TV system in the rooms. The grounds are well kept with lots of flowers and private areas to sit outside and talk. Both the food and the service are excellent here. It's a real hidden gem in the midst of summer, the best time to enjoy all that this area has to offer.

Kirsten and Mary are just splendid! They are great hosts, providing everything you could possibly need and then some. We loved the Masquerade Room with its charming turret balcony. Breakfasts were the best we've ever had at over 100 B&B's we have stayed at nationwide. The lawn and gardens are meticulously kept & SO beautiful this time of year! This is a great home base for biking the Root River Trail. We'll be back!

We had never stayed in a B & B before, and Scanlan House really set the bar high! The room was lovely and comfortable, the breakfast was amazing, and the staff and atmosphere of the whole house was welcoming. We will definately book another stay at Scanlan House. Thank you to Kirstin and David for making our 25th anniversary so special.

We received a gift certificate from my fiancé dad for xmas. we decided to use it for our 5th yrs. anniversary. We arrived early and stopped in to let them now we where in town and the owner was very happy to show us around and go over things. We left to go check out the town and arrived back at check in time. The room was amazing, and they had our extra's pack in our room for us. It was a beautiful bouquet of roses, champagne, assorted fresh fruit and chocolates. The private balcony was wonderful. The next day we went down to eat our breakfast. Wonderful to seat and talk with others who where staying there as well. Now the Breakfast was 5 star good. Fresh fruit, yogurt parfait, a wonderful egg soufflé homemade sausage and muffins and then dessert of homemade apple dumplings with ice cream. all the food came out at different times so it was a 3 course breakfast. Amazing!!!!! we had never stayed at a B & B but we will be doing it more. I highly recommend it.
