Beautiful Place To Relax

5 on August 28, 2014

We had a wonderful three night stay in the Carriage House. Such a beautiful, comfortable, and clean space. Comfortable bed, roomy jacuzzi tub, strong shower, great WiFi signal, gorgeous landscaping, and such delicious food! Everything Nancy and Dave served was a piece of art but tasted even better than it looked! Truly a lovely place, very hard to leave.

Fabulous B&B

5 on August 27, 2014

Oh my goodness what a wonderful place. Dave and Nancy are perfect hosts and their B&B is superb. Beautiful decor, absolutely scrumptious rooms beds and amenities. Right on the river for a bike ride too!

Ne Plus Ultra of B&B's

5 on August 22, 2014

This is the top of the top for B&B's. Nancy and Dave are wonderful folks. The setting, and rooms are unique and comfortable on every level, and the breakfasts… well probably the best we've run into on our travels. We recommend Habberstab House unconditionally. (Not to mention that it's in one of the genuine fun towns of Minnesota for biker/canoe/kayak/tubing folks.) The Freemans

Simply the best!

5 on August 22, 2014

Simply the best! Comfortable and very nice. The decorating is near perfect but comfort isn't sacrificed in any way. And I'm not exaggerating when I say that our breakfast on the morning we left may have been the best I've ever had while traveling. The community of Lanesboro is interesting and the biking on the Root River Trail is excellent. Nancy and Dave know how to run a B&B and we enjoyed their company very much. Enjoy your stay.

Habberstad House is a great getaway!

5 on August 17, 2014

We had a great stay in the Habberstad House in Lanesboro, MN. Terrific old house, attractive rooms, well renovated, on a quiet street several blocks from the main avenues. Easy access to 60 miles of bike trails, canoeing, and kayaking. Nancy & Dave provide a wealth of information about the activities and restaurants in the area. Their breakfasts are superb--you may not need to eat lunch. We definitely will return. Darrell S

Nice stay

First time at bed and breakfast. Beautiful house and gardens!

This is the epitome of Bed and Breakfasts.

5 on August 12, 2014

Habberstad House was recommended by a co-worker -- I feel I owe him something bigger than a breadbox as a "thank you". This was the epitome of Bed and Breakfasts. More than any other B&B I've stayed at, this was comfortably homey, it was clean-clean-clean, and the food was really high quality. The gardens are really well kept and the house and grounds updated. Definitely a high-quality adult getaway that is reasonably priced. Expect the best, you'll get it.

Perfect place for Anniversary #52

The Habberstad House was just lovely, and the breakfast was fantastic!

Wonderful place to stay.

It was comfortable, warm, friendly, one of the best we've stayed at.

A Trip to the Past

5 on August 03, 2014

Staying in this wonderful house brought memories of my grandparents small town Victorian home. The Habberstad House has been restored in the best possible way, staying true to its roots at the same time as it provides a modern, very comfortable escape. Our two night stay could not have been better in any way.
