On the bank of the Root River, in one of Minnesota's most ancient and picturesque valleys. Mrs. B's also sits right on the main street, which is Parkway Ave. Restored to include modern conveniences, while keeping a comfortable and eclectic Victorian decor. In the yard between the inn and the twisting river, the conversations of birds, the sound of flowing water, and a lovely garden offer a peaceful place to relax. Looking from Mrs. B's windows outside, is a scene that could have been painted by Thomas Cole or Grandma Moses. Our decks await your enjoyment and a full creative country breakfast is served each morning. Mrs. B's Gift Certificates are always available.

This would be an absolutely perfect place if our room had a better mattress. It was difficult to get a good night's sleep.

Private, quiet, great hospitality, great food, very clean, nice gardens in the back and location is perfect. The rooms could use more ventilation but it goes on my "return again" list.

Under new ownership, Mrs. B's is the perfect B & B. Located on the main street in Lanesboro, you can walk everywhere. The inn is charming and the new owners are embracing their roles with great enthusiasm. The breakfasts are fantastic ~~ we will be back!

Mrs B's was a wonderful get-away. The proprietor's Trish and Matthew were excellent hosts and provide an outstanding breakfast along with fresh baked cookies every afternoon! The location is perfect, on main street and the river runs through the back yard gardens.

We stayed two nights and had a wonderful stay at Mrs. B's. The bed and breakfast is right in the middle of the downtown section where most of the shops are at and right along by the river and trail. Our room was small, but we were only in the room to shower and sleep. Had a fantastic breakfast both mornings. If we had any extra needs, they were met quickly and graciously. There is a shed to store your bikes. The trails are gorgeous. We had fun tubing down the Root River. We would definitely stay there again!!!

We just discovered Lanesboro when we were invited to bike the trail with friends. When making a room reservation, we found there were many B&B's from which to choose. We were happy with our choice of Mrs. B's. Located on the main street, it was near to restaurants (Pedal Pushers and Riverside on the Root were great), parking was limited in the back of the Inn but parking on the street was available and safe (and there was a place for bike storage) , the Commonweal Theatre was a 2 block walk (with an outstanding production of "Around the World in 80 Days"), and the trail access just outside the front door. There are other attractions to be found -- just read the brochures. The heavy spring rains made the river unsafe for canoeing and tubing - but it offers other options for another time. The owners, Trish and Matthew were welcoming. While the rooms were small they were decorated beautifully, were clean, the bed comfortable, and the Inn quiet. Our room had only a shower which is ok by us. Our group took advantage of the outside seating and garden area along the River and the afternoon cookies. Coffee and tea were available in the early morning and later afternoon. There is no TV but it did not matter as it is the aim of the owners to create a restful presence. And -- the breakfasts each day were outstanding. The blueberry pancakes were the best I have had and the French toast a close second.

This was the perfect place for my husband and I to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary. It was quiet, relaxing and the breakfast was AMAZING! Trish and Matthew were great hosts and we can't wait to come back again. The town of Lanesboro couldn't get much cuter and the bike trails were really fun. We biked to Preston for lunch and then back to Lanesboro, we saw 5 deer during our ride :)
