Treat yourself to a restful stay at the Historic Hutchinson House Bed and Breakfast, located just 3 blocks from picturesque, historic downtown Faribault, Minnesota. This Queen Anne Victorian home is worth a stay just for the historic beauty of the house itself. The architectural detail is a prime example of artistry and quality craftsmanship that is truthfully awe-inspiring. The house offers a peaceful haven, but with all of the modern conveniences you need to be pampered; including private baths. We serve a bountiful breakfast both Saturday and Sunday mornings at 9:00 am. Weekdays we serve an exceptional breakfast between 7:30 - 9:00 a.m., depending on the needs of our guest community. Innkeepers Tami and Doug Schluter, and their dog, Butler, look forward to seeing you!

Lovely visit to Carleton college

We had a relaxing stay at the Hutchinson House. The food was delicious and we met other freshmen parents which made it a special feature of our visit.

Our anniversary stay

4.6 on October 15, 2014

I hate writing positive reviews for the simple fact that it entices people to go to what I'd consider our nice little secret. That said, it was a fantastic getaway for myself and my wife. And a great way to spend our first anniversary. The house is beautiful and beautifully decorated. The hosts were extremely friendly and literally went out of their way to make sure we had a great stay. There is a dog (Butler) on the premises, so if you are not a dog lover, this may be a deterant. We found the dog to be very friendly and we loved his personality. Very laid back dog. Additionally it is probably two blocks from downtown Faribault, so if you want to have a few drinks and not worry about driving, that's a way to go about it. Again, I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice getaway for the weekend.

Nice place but the rate is really high for one night in small town B+B.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking the time to provide us feedback on your stay. Based on the October 2014 date posting of your review, I'm going to make some assumptions in my response. Thankfully, the house has been booked practically every weekend since mid-May, which may indicate you didn't have the opportunity to book your first choice for a room. We offer weekend rates from $129-$199/night based on the amenities in each of our 5 guest rooms. In an effort to allow our guests even greater traveling flexibility, we do not require a two-night minimum, which is common-place in the industry. Also, we offer discounted weekday rates . . . popular with business travelers. I'm sorry you felt we did not offer you a significant value. We are constantly working to improve our service to make everyone's B&B experience more enjoyable. Please feel free to contact us directly with suggestions on how we might improve your stay and subsequently, the next guest's stay. Thank you!

Top Recommendation!

As soon as we arrived we had the most welcome greeting, and from that moment, we were hooked. The Hutchinson House was recommended to us by our dear friends who live in Faribault. The location was awesome, the accommodations were exceptional, including a very easy to sleep in bed, and Tami (the innkeeper) makes a wonderful breakfast! She and her husband Doug are incredibly knowledgeable about Faribault and the surrounding areas and were extremely helpful with suggestions of places to see. We learned a lot about this wonderful little community and plan to return to the Historic Hutchinson House in a few months for a fun winter experience. If you want to sleep well and get your days off to a great start with a delicious breakfast while you're in Faribault, then there's no better place in town!!

Great Weekend

We had a wonderful weekend at the Hutchinson House. We went to celebrate our anniversary there and Tami and Doug were just great! They helped us pick out things to do in Faribault and were so sweet. What a wonderful experience and we look forward to going back there for our 2nd anniversary next year.

Nice, Cozy get away

4.2 on July 15, 2014

We stayed at the very nicely arranged Histroic Hutchinson House in Faribault. Thank you to Doug and Tami who took time to share the history of the house through its different owners and also shared their own story of coming to own and operate a B&B. The rooms were tastefully decorated and very clean. The house has been updated to still maintain its "history" without feeling "old". Breakfast was delicious and the company was excellent. Thank you for a wonderful stay. We'll be back.

Great Hosts!
