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!

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.
Thanks for the kind words. We were delighted to have you stay with us. We are looking forward to your return visit!

We recently stayed in the Carriage House for a "girls weekend" and loved every second! I wouldn't have realized the owner's just purchased the property a year ago...they seemed like pros and exceeded all our expectations. The breakfast was especially good and there was always enough to save for a small lunch. Elaine is an amazing chef and they were both extremely good hosts. We may make this our annual tradition!
It is certainly fun hosting friends who enjoy getting together for a weekend. We would love to have you return for another visit!

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 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.
