Wonderful Getaway!

We recently stayed at the Habberstad House in the carriage room. The space is absolutely perfect for relaxing and unwinding, exactly what we needed! The room is nice and open, we loved having the fireplace and whirlpool tub in the room. Mark and Elaine were the perfect hosts, going above and beyond to make dinner reservations for us and to reserve tickets to a play we wanted to attend. Breakfast was delicious and completely surpassed out expectations! We would highly recommend staying there and can't wait for our next visit! Michelle & Brad


Beautiful home

We stayed for one night in the Orchid room. Mark and Elaine were very accommodating to the point of offering to come pick us up in Peterson when we had a flat tire on a bike. We would definitely stay here again!


Lovely B&B

This was our second stay at Habberstad House and it was great birthday present for my husband. Mark and Elaine are very gracious hosts and the breakfast was awesome! Elaine made reservations at both the Commenweal Theathre and Village Dining Hall for out night out and both were wonderful experiences! We will be back again! Thanks, Mark and Elaine.
