Historic Hutchinson House B&B

305 2nd Street NW , Faribault, MN 55021-5112 USA (Show map)


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!

You'll miss a great time no matter what your motives for getting away from "it all" at the Hutchinson House. Tami, Doug, and Louis are simply great to be around. Don't hesitate....make plans today. Life is way to short to waist too much time planning.

Anniversary B&B

The Hutchinson house was the best b&b we have stayed at. The house was stunning! The owners made us feel at home and very informative of the history of the house and the city of faribault! Our bed was so comfortable and the room was home away from home. Highly recommend this place if you need to reconnect and just plain relax.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind review! I'm especially glad you enjoyed the house as it was recently named in "The Top 50 Coolest Houses in Minnesota" by HighwayHighlights.com. The Historic Hutchinson House B&B was ranked #20, and is one of only a few properties on the list that is actually open to the public to enjoy! Good for you to take advantage of the opportunity . . . we hope to see you again soon!

Excellent stay. Would recommend

My 17yo son and I stayed in the Malone Suite. The separate rooms suited our needs perfectly. Both of us have celiac disease and Tami prepared a fabulous, hearty and nutritious gluten-free breakfast. Would definitely stay here again.

Best Ever

We have stayed there the past two years for our anniversary and this time was wonderful as always. Doug and Tammi make you feel right at home. The rooms are beautiful and the breakfast is absolutely to die for! We will definitely be back next year for our 3rd anniversary!

Soooo...first the bad. Tami...Where are the complimentary cookies? Other than that glaring omission my wife Sharon and I both thought agree the Hutchinson House in Faribault is what a B&B should be. Great old house, very good value, and though you wouldn't know it Faribault has a great downtown and is a nice day getaway. Jack...

Innkeeper Response
Soooo . . .right back at ya! LOL Unfortunately for you, the endless complimentary cookies are part of our Girls Getaway Weekend package. Please try us again sometime and I'll make it up to you! And, I do thank you and appreciate the rest of your review.

A Cozy Winter Getaway

4.2 on February 24, 2015

My daughter and I stayed last weekend for our second-annual "retreat". We enjoyed every minute. Had the place all to ourselves on Thursday night, and Tami made us a big bowl of the best popcorn to enjoy with a movie we had rented. Coughlin's room is well-appointed and spacious. We loved the electric fireplace, closet for our coats and clothes, and comfy bed and furniture for relaxing. The big TV is also a plus, as we're HGTV fans. Friday we enjoyed a lovely breakfast (mmm, bacon) visited the Faribault Woolen Mill and the county historical museum, tried the local food, and attended an evening concert at the Paradise Theater (thanks, Tami, for the tickets!). We also had time to just hang out in the house and enjoy our lovely room, read, and talk together. My daughter loved playing with Butler, and we both enjoyed visiting with Tami and a fellow guest. Our getaway time always seems too short, but we look forward to next time. The Hutchinson House is getting to be a family tradition!

Innkeeper Response
Butler and I certainly enjoyed seeing you two again and are hoping your visits do become a family tradition! Remember, anytime you stay overnight, if there's a performance at the Paradise Center for the Arts, I will provide tickets . . . it's called our Play and Stay package. P.S. We really enjoyed the violin practice, as that doesn't happen very often at the B&B!

About the innkeepers

The Victorians, of course, were not especially known for their practicality but this “Queen” is an exception. Upstairs, guests relax in five spacious guestrooms. Master Hutchinson could never imagine that his pride n’ joy would eventually boast eight bathrooms and a TV in every room. Changing with the times, the whole house has central air-conditioning and even has wireless internet for those “techies” that can’t quite let go.
