Historic Hutchinson House B&B

305 2nd Street NW , Faribault, MN 55021-5112 USA (Show map)


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!

memorable stay

4.6 on December 05, 2017

My son and I were in the area for the annual Christmas concert at St. Ofaf college. We wanted to make it a memorable weekend so found the last room at Tami and Doug's beautifully restored Queen Anne mansion. We were warmly welcomed by Louie the friendly bulldog host and Tami who cooked us a gourmet meal the next morning. We got to stay in the turret room with luxurious bedding and lovely decor. Quiet, restful sleep in our special room and then a breakfast in multiple courses with bottomless refills on coffee and tea and homemade coffee cake, egg bake and pouched pears made for a pleasant start to our Sunday. Great conversation with other guests at our breakfast table with Doug and Tami making us all feel comfortable like family. Faribault is an easy 12+ minutes to Northfield, but has lots to offer on its own. Book directly with Tami and Doug for a memorable and comfortable stay.

I stayed at the Hutchinson and my room was very nice and accommodating! Tami and Doug were fantastic hosts - they have a beautiful property and were all too kind to share it and make my time comfortable and enjoyable. And of course, I loved meeting their cute pup - Louie! I'll definitely be staying again!

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

5 on July 18, 2017

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.

Amazing B&B experience!

Fabulous Stay at Hutchinson House

5 on June 17, 2017

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!

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.
