Getaway To Lanesboro

Very pleasant and relaxing experience. Breakfast was both tasty and interesting. Highly recommend!


Perfect place to stay in Lanesboro

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.


Great B & B in Lanesboro

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!


fantastic

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.


Beautiful and clean but breakfast...uhm

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.


Great stay. Highly recommended.

A very nice stay

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!


A Wonderful Stay

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.


Mother and Daughter Getaway

5 on June 04, 2015

My daughter and I were looking for a fun overnight where we could stroll through antique stores, have a nice dinner and then retreat to a comfortable room where we could chat the night away. The best part of our trip was spent in the Carriage room at Habberstad House. Nancy and Lena ( her cute poodle) welcomed us upon arrival and then helped us settle in to a beautiful, peaceful space with views of both the fountain and gardens below and the treetops. It was just what we needed!


Great Stay

Lovely town and Great hosts. Accommodations were very nice. Owners have done an outstanding job with the facility and grounds. Food was like a 5 star restaurant. Wouldn't hesitate to go there again.
