Habberstad House is a great place to get away.

5 on July 09, 2014

We enjoyed everything about the stay. the room, food and hospitality made for a perfect vacation.

Just returned from a weekend with my husband in Lanesboro, MN and we stayed at the Habberstad House. Dave and Nancy are the most wonderful inn-keepers. Their hospitality, excellent breakfasts, historical knowledge and fine recommendations made our stay seem way too short! The accommodations were fantastic -- the whole house was beautifully decorated, each piece carefully chosen, and the place was spotless. The beds were super comfortable and their attention to the little details (bottled water in the rooms, extra pillows, beverage upon arrival, etc.) made all the difference. They were so friendly, yet sensitive to ensuring they weren't intrusive. An added benefit was the great folks we met while staying there--fun to chat with and share some laughs and stories. We've stayed at several other B & B's and this one tops the charts! A definite on our places to return to!

A wonderful weekend at the Habberstad House

5 on July 02, 2014

My husband and I spent two nights at the Habberstad House. We were greeted by our host with wine and cheese. Our room was very comfortable and cozy. Our hosts made dinner reservations for us and booked our tickets for the theatre. The breakfasts were very good. I didn't need much lunch. There was plenty to do and still time for a nap. A perfect weekend get-a-way. We look forward to returning.

Refreshing retreat

5 on June 30, 2014

We enjoyed our wonderful two night stay at this delightful Bed and Breakfast. Great room with a beautiful view of the fountain and gardens. Each morning we woke up to the smell of fresh brewed coffee which was savored as we sipped on it while sitting on the big front porch. We were then greeted with a beautifully set breakfast table, as our hosts presented us with a tasty, filling, and spectacular full breakfast. We enjoyed meeting new people and our hosts, Dave and Nancy made us feel right at home during our stay at the Habberstad house. We look forward to going back there again!

Great Experience

4.8 on June 23, 2014

We had a great experience at the Habberstad House! Everything was outstanding. The food was unique and very good. Only one very minor issue in that the stairs going to another room above our room were a bit noisy. Again, just a very minor issue. We'll be back.
