Enjoy your stay!

The innkeepers are excellent hosts, friendly and personable, making our stay very pleasant and relaxing. They know a lot about the area, so don't hesitate to ask. Our room was clean, comfortable and decorated like the Craftsman style home it is. Their home is a quiet oasis with beautiful gardens. The breads and breakfasts were delicious. If stairs are a concern, let the innkeeper know when you reserve a room.

Girls Weekend

My daughter and I stayed at this B&B for one night. It was a very pleasant evening. We enjoyed being walking distance from the downtown activities. The owners were very accommodating.

Outstanding Experience

5 on May 27, 2014

The whole experience we had was excellent. Breakfast was delicious, hosts were friendly, room was comfortable and clean, bread and coffee for wake-up was a treat, town was full of interesting things to do and places to visit, and the quiet setting was perfect for our anniversary.

Great (but too short) getaway

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Marv and Carol last weekend. Every detail was accounted for...Hillcrest Hide-Away will be our Lanesboro destination. Thank so much.

Winter Get Away

4.8 on March 10, 2014

We went to Lanesboro for the perfect winter get away. The cross country skiing was fantastic, best day of the year for that. The accommodations here were perfect too. Carol and Marv were excellent hosts. Our room was very clean, quiet. Very romantic with the electric fireplace. The room had a wine opener and wine glasses. At breakfast we talked and learned about Carol and Marv. The breakfast was very good, the bread and coffee at our door at 7:00 was great. We will definitely come back here. We are planning on a summer trip now.

Hillcrest Hide-Away in Lanesboro, Mn

We have stayed in several B&Bs in Lanesboro. They are all wonderful, each with their own unique character. This particular B&B is off the main street approximately 3 blocks. The rooms are very clean and breakfast was very good. The home allows the guests to "relive" the craftsman house lifestyle.

My 3rd time here, just love it

4.8 on October 17, 2013

I've been back 3 times because they not only have great lodging and food, but the atmosphere is wonderful - altogether, it's the best B&B I've been to. So much to do in Lanesboro too. We love Marv & Carol!

Great girl's weekend

Spent a girls getaway at the Hillcrest Hide-Away. The hospitality was terrific and Carol's cooking was wonderful! Our room was so comfortable that two nights went way too fast. Thanks for a great weekend!
