Too bad this review site doesn't allow you to give more than 5 stars, because we definitively would! Our stay was wonderful. We had the Rose Suite which had a lovely sitting area and a private second floor porch, perfect for reading with your cup of coffee in the morning. Nancy and Dave were very gracious and welcoming. The food was lovely. The B & B is very clean and impeccably decorated. We loved visiting Lanesboro and our two days on the Root River bike trail. You cannot go wrong with a stay at Habberstad House.

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.

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!

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!!!!!

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.
