Our visit to The Habberstad House

4.8 on April 14, 2015

I cannot say enough great things about our visit to The Habberstad House. We stayed behind the main house in the Carriage House, which was like a home away from home. There was a kitchen, a Jacuzzi, a T.V. a king-size bed and everything you needed to enjoy a weekend away. Dave and Nancy make you feel so at home and the breakfast's they serve are on the top of the list! Our children gave us this for our 50th anniversary gift and they couldn't have picked a better place!

Fabulous early season stay

Our third stay at Habberstad House B&B was fantastic. Dave and Nancy were engaging and helpful. We stayed in the Rose Room, new for us. It was wonderful with two comfortable chairs for relaxing. We especially enjoyed our long discussion with the other guests.Oh, yes, breakfast was delicious!

More than expected

My husband and I booked a weekend trip to Lanesboro at the Habberstad House B&B. We were quickly reminded how much we look forward to staying at B&B 's. Nancy and Dave were gracious and engaging proprietors. Both mornings we enjoyed a delicious breakfast and lingered for hours with other diners for hours of engaging conversation. The historic home is decorated beautifully throughout. We will definitely book another visit.

We Will Be Back!

We loved our weekend at the Habberstad. The breakfast was divine and the attention to detail was much appreciated. Lanesboro is a quaint little town even in the off season. It was wonderful to get away and enjoy being together. This was a great house! The local porfessional professional theater was awesome!

Could not have been better

We stayed with Dave and Nancy Valentines weekend 2015. Everything about our stay was perfect. The food was beautiful and delicious. Our room was comfortable and spotless. We arrived a touch early but were greeted warmly and that warmth and helpfulness continued all weekend. This was our first stay in a B&B and any future others will have big shoes to fill!

The Perfect Lanesboro Getaway!

4.0 on December 02, 2014

The Habberstad Bed and Breakfast is ideally situated in Lanesboro Minnesota. It is a perfect blend of old and new. The house and grounds are impeccably maintained. The rooms are beautifully restored with modern amenities. Breakfast is always a treat with a menu that alternates between savory and sweet. Nancy and Dave are wonderful hosts! Thanks again for another wonderful weekend getaway.

Quaility!!! Quality! B&B

When I read reviews I love to hear about what rooms people stayed in and the details so here goes ours. We stayed in the Rose Room and we so loved the very comfortable recliners in the sitting area and the private porch we had the chairs out there were so comfortable also and we appreciated the little tables next to them. Our bathrom was small but the shower was Great! We were ok with the small bathroom during this stay as we loved the porch and sitting area. The only thing I wish is that we could of had a Keruig in our room so we would not have to leave the room for coffee and some rooms do have one and next time we will try one of those rooms :) I will say though they have coffee ready at 7 downstairs which was very nice. Dave is just the sweetest man and so humble and made us feel right at home. They made our reservations for the Resturant "Intermission" which is Awesome and we will be coming back to the B&B and Intermission to eat again:) Thank you also for the beverages when we arrived the wine was sooo good.

Nancy and Dave were two of the finest people we have ever met. They were most helpful in guiding us in an unknown area of the country. Our room was magnificent, very clean and a wonderful view. I would highly recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone. Can' wait to come back and enjoy another wonderful breakfast and extended stay at the Habberstad House Bed and Breakfast. Thank you Nancy and Dave. The Hartmans

Wonderful Weekend

4.8 on October 07, 2014

My husband and I rented the Carriage House the other weekend. It was my birthday weekend. What a pleasant surprise this place was. Everything was wonderful. The Carriage House is very private and comfortable. It is very apparent that the owners have taken every detail into account and chosen only the highest quality furnishings. I loved opening the windows and listening to the water fountain outside while eating the breakfast that they brought to us. I felt so pampered. The theater in town was excellent and the bike trail was awesome. We rented bikes and it was so convenient. I bought the owners book about owning a bed and breakfast and read it in two days. Imagine my surprise to find out that the historical architect who helped select the exterior colors was a family friend of ours. That made our stay even more special. We hope to come back, or maybe I will bring my theater loving sister down for a quick trip.
