Staying at bed and breakfast is what my wife and I do for our anniversary, for almost thirty years we been going away for a romantic get away. This year took us to the picturesque town of Lanesboro Minnesota, and the Habberstad house B&B. We chose to stay in the carriage house, a private room away from main house, but all the rooms looked very comfortable. On our arrival we where greeted by the owners Elaine and Mark, who invited us to share a glass and socialize with the other guests, we accepted and now have new friends, guests and Inn keepers... Our stay in the carriage house offered all the amenities and comfort one could dream of from whirlpool bath, king size bed,to state of the art sound system and breakfast in bed! The food and room where amazing, the only thing that made our stay better w as the hospitality of the Inn keepers.

We had a wonderful experience. Mark and Elaine were so friendly and we felt well taken care of. We will definitely book this b&b again next year. Barbara and Bruce Snyder

We stayed in the Rose suite...loved the room because it had a private balcony and a separate sitting room. It's close enough to the "downtown" area to walk, but far enough where it's peaceful and quiet.

I was just there over the last weekend and have already recommended Habberstad House to at least a dozen people. I can't wait to go back!

The Habberstad was top notch. Five Star in our book. Very, very clean, gorgeous, and everything I wanted was already there, they didn't forget a thing. We have already booked the Carriage House for our next stay one year from today when we checked out. There was absolutely nothing wrong, and everything right. I have never given such a great review, and I have stayed at many B & B's, as well as many 5 star hotels. Quality, kindness, intergrity, a gorgeous home, and class. Thank you Elaine and Mark, the owners.

We stayed in the Carriage House and it was absolutely beautiful and very clean. The bed was pretty good. The shower could have had a little more shelf space for soap etc. The Jacuzzi was wonderful with a very calming atmosphere. The kitchen was very clean and had everything we needed. The only disappointment was the breakfast. Very disappointing, couldn't hardly eat it. Way, way too much sugar. They basically just served us desert for breakfast. Two mornings they served a very small egg dish along with a lot of sweets. The last morning was 2 strips of bacon and french toast with a pink paste in the middle. Had to spit it out. If they serve a normal breakfast, we'll be back.

The breakfast is family style, which is very fun. Our table was full (ten people) even on a Monday morning. It was good food, but not as fancy as some b and b's we've stayed in. The hosts were extremely helpful...asked us what our plans were and if they could help us book any tours, etc. Beverages upon arrival created a nice welcome. The grounds were beautiful!

The Habberstad house was a wonderful stay. The food was excellent and the gardens are absolutely beautiful. Nancy (and her adorable dog Lena) were wonderful and very kind.
