About

Treat yourself to a restful stay at the Historic Hutchinson House Bed and Breakfast, located just 3 blocks from picturesque, historic downtown Faribault, Minnesota. This Queen Anne Victorian home is worth a stay just for the historic beauty of the house itself. The architectural detail is a prime example of artistry and quality craftsmanship that is truthfully awe-inspiring. The house offers a peaceful haven, but with all of the modern conveniences you need to be pampered; including private baths. We serve a bountiful breakfast both Saturday and Sunday mornings at 9:00 am. Weekdays we serve an exceptional breakfast between 7:30 - 9:00 a.m., depending on the needs of our guest community. Innkeepers Tami and Doug Schluter, and their dog, Louie, look forward to seeing you!

Quiet and relaxing

Loved staying a this B&B a few years ago so chose it again this year. Located in a lovely, quiet neighborhood the home is beautiful. The neighborhood is quiet and just a short walk to a grocery store and downtown. We appreciated access to a refrigerator stocked with bottled water which was always available. In addition to the coffee served at breakfast, we were able to get hot drinks at any time by using a Keurig coffee maker. The breakfasts are outstanding!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you SO much for returning to stay at the Historic Hutchinson House B&B! Sometimes we feel like we don't get a chance to visit with our guests as much as we would like . . . a return visit gives us the opportunity to get to know you better!

Fantastic stay !!!

We contacted Tami prior to arriving, about an early arrival (1pm). She let us check in early, because there was no one in our room that day. We were able to take a nap, and get dressed up for a night out, with family in the twin cities. Our breakfast was delicious, and Doug was a great conversationalist, giving us the history of this beautiful house. I am so glad we stayed here, and made the drive into the cities. It was so worth it.


Wonderful Evening at B&B

We had a wonderful night at the Historic Hutchinson House with Painting, wine, and cheese pairings. Tami and Doug are great hosts. Tami makes a gourmet breakfast in the morning, not to be missed. Will definitely stay there again in the future.


Fabulous Stay at Hutchinson House

Our family stayed at the Historic Hutchinson House B&B during the Carleton College 2017 graduation. We had a great time! The B&B is run in a beautiful old Victorian house with charming decor. The rooms were clean, well-furnished, and cozy! Tami and Doug were excellent and accommodating hosts, and Tami's breakfasts were delicious. Louie the bulldog was an adorable bonus. We would recommend this B&B to anyone visiting the area! Be sure to ask about the banana bread!


Excellent stay and very nice owners

Very nice stay visiting our son in Faribault. We got impressed with the warm and kind people we met there. Tami made very good breakfast and shared with us some talks about Faribault and her wonderful house. It was an excellent trip to Minnesota. Thank you very much, Tami

Innkeeper Response

Our stay

Great place near the historic downtown and close to other attractions in Faribault. Breakfast was fantastic and Tammie was a fabulous host. Our room was large and well appointed with everything we needed while keeping it in the historical context of the Victorian home. Would definitely recommend and will stay there again when we visit.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind words. We agree that being within a few blocks of the historic downtown is definitely a plus . . . simply park your car and walk to dining, shopping and entertainment. We hope to see you again soon!

Stayed for our wedding anniversary and it was great. Tami was a great hostess and fun to talk with over breakfast. Room was perfect. Tami also worked with me to have flowers and a gift waiting for my wife in the room when we arrived. Highly recommended!


Outstanding!

If your looking for a romantic getaway or a girls weekend this is the place. Tami and Doug are so down to earth and welcoming and the breakfast is exceptional and that's coming from a very picky eater.

About the innkeepers

The Victorians, of course, were not especially known for their practicality but this “Queen” is an exception. Upstairs, guests relax in five spacious guestrooms. Master Hutchinson could never imagine that his pride n’ joy would eventually boast eight bathrooms and a TV in every room. Changing with the times, the whole house has central air-conditioning and even has wireless internet for those “techies” that can’t quite let go.
