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!

Top Recommendation!

5 on September 22, 2014

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

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!

We enjoyed our stay in a Victorian home and the room was wonderful. Enjoyed the view from our window. The dog was fun to have around also. Would highly recommend this B&B.

Quick stay at Hutchinson House

4.4 on July 01, 2014

We stayed one night at the Hutchinson House, and it was a great place. Tami was a wonderful, warm, friendly and helpful hostess. The room was very nice, with as comfortable a bed as you could ask for. We were a bit warm, since the air conditioning was not turned on, and the humidity was high (it was, after all, Minnesota!). But we were on the 2nd floor, and were able to open the windows. Overall, the Hutchinson House was a great value and we are delighted we found it!

Fantastic Stay

What a great weekend getaway ! Fantastic hosts, superb breakfast, lots of history and the best blue cheese ever !! Both Tami and Doug are very knowledgeable about what the town has to offer. They promote the down town sector, stores and shops. Lunch at the Cheese Cave was amazing, Studio 13 was very accommodating. The car show was fun and interesting. We will be back !

Historic Hutchinson House B&B

4.8 on May 29, 2014

Loved our stay at this B & B ! It's a wonderful home, beautifully appointed and the hosts are fantastic! Our daughter is vegetarian and Tammi was very accomadating in terms of her diet--greatly appreciated. My only suggestion is that the hosts provide fruit and/or other small snacks for the guests (could be for purchase or in a basket in the room upon arrival and cost added to what they charge) Travelers arrive and depart at various times, sometimes needing to miss their FABULOUS breakfast or get hungry after a meal and there is no place close to the B&B to get a nibble to tide one over. Otherwise our stay was perfect!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you SO much for your kind review. I feel bad that I neglected to mention the "treats" on the kitchen counter. Usually, there is a "cake plate" that holds various items for snacking. I may have been out, or moved it in the process of cleaning up after breakfast . . . I'm really sorry you missed out on them!
