What a great stay

4.8 on July 22, 2014

Great room and beautiful house surrounded by a wonderful garden. The hosts were very friendly and would go the extra mile to be helpful and accommodate our needs, such as recommending food and calling for reservations. They served wonderfully tasty coffee and the breakfast was unbelievable, very yummy and beautifully presented. I would highly recommend this house to anyone.

A Lovely Choice in Lanesboro

4.6 on July 21, 2014

We were pleasantly surprised and liked everything about the Habberstad House and its lovely gardens. The owners are cordial and friendly, and they made us feel very much at home. Breakfast was delicious. We will definitely go back.

We will be back to Habberstad House!

I wanted to plan a special surprise for my husbands birthday where we could bike the local trails and relax in Lanesboro. I must say, this was idyllic! The home and grounds were well kept and appointed with beautiful decor that suited the style of the home. We were greeted with white wine and beer (our drinks of choice) and a tour of the home. We enjoyed the accommodations in the Scandinavian room which included a very comfortable bed, whirlpool tub and our private bath and our own balcony where we enjoyed coffee in the morning before breakfast. I was particularly pleased with the Keurig in our room so I could have my first cup before breakfast. The room was well organized, spacious, so comfortable and cozy and beautiful. I also noticed that we didn't hear any other guests thanks to the hallway that separated our entrance from the other rooms. It made for a very peaceful night for us. They also have a place where we could store our bikes, which we appreciated very much! Nancy and Dave were pleasant, helpful and offered great suggestions for guests as needed for dinner and entertainment. I loved that when I confirmed my room I received lots of information about the Lanesboro area from them. It was very helpful in making our plans! I would highly recommend the Habberstad House to anyone who needs to getaway, relax and enjoy a peaceful and wonderful time! We cannot wait to go back!

Truly Exceptional

We enjoyed two glorious nights at the Habberstad House. Dave and Nancy are very gracious,welcoming hosts. Their home is exceptionally clean, well maintained and very comforatable. Our stay in the Rose room was relaxing and peaceful. Dave and Nancy are both gourmet chefs. Breakfast is world class delicious, a perfect start to the day.

Enjoyable stay at Habberstad

We celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary recently with a short trip to Lanesboro. Whenever we go to Lanesboro, we go biking as well as shopping at the Amish farms and we always stay at the Habberstad. This our 4th time staying at the Habberstad and it is always a wonderful experience. Nancy and Dave know how to make their guests feel welcomed and relaxed. I bought Nancy's recently published book, "Behind The Door Marked Private" and am looking forward to reading it soon.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Habberstad House and can honestly say I cannot think of one thing I would change, everything about it was perfect. The Carriage House was so comfortable, the breakfast were a culinary feast and the view of the gardens were breathtaking. Need I say more!!!!!

Most recent stay at the Habberstad

Nancy and Dave are wonderful hosts, always pleasant, gracious, and very helpful when a guest needs helps making plans. To say nothing of their cooking skills - I've loved every breakfast I've had at the Habberstad. The house and grounds are beautiful. And the resident dog, Lena, is always a treat to be around and loves going for walks.

This was our 2nd stay at Habberstad House and it just keeps getting better and better. It's a wonderful experience with relaxing rooms, delicious and special breakfasts, and helpful owners Dave and Nancy who can direct you to great places to see and do in Lanesboro. We will be back!

Habberstad House is a great place to get away.

Just returned from a weekend with my husband in Lanesboro, MN and we stayed at the Habberstad House. Dave and Nancy are the most wonderful inn-keepers. Their hospitality, excellent breakfasts, historical knowledge and fine recommendations made our stay seem way too short! The accommodations were fantastic -- the whole house was beautifully decorated, each piece carefully chosen, and the place was spotless. The beds were super comfortable and their attention to the little details (bottled water in the rooms, extra pillows, beverage upon arrival, etc.) made all the difference. They were so friendly, yet sensitive to ensuring they weren't intrusive. An added benefit was the great folks we met while staying there--fun to chat with and share some laughs and stories. We've stayed at several other B & B's and this one tops the charts! A definite on our places to return to!
