My wife and I were so appreciative of the accommodations at Habberstad. From the moment we arrived to the time of departure, we were given 5-star treatment. The room was beautiful and the breakfast was very, very good.
Thanks so much! Hope to see you again at the Habberstad House.

My husband and I stayed at this BnB in September 2016. We booked the Scandinavian Suite (I believe it's called), and it was literally, the nicest room I've ever slept in! Everything was just so incredibly luxurious and comfortable. This is a quality BnB that I would return to in a heartbeat if it were in a more happening part of MN. I found Lanesboro to be pretty....quiet. But this BnB was top-notch.
Thank you so much! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at the Habberstad House B&B and hope to see you again!

A lovely night was spent in the Carriage House at the Habberstad Bed and Breakfast. The amenities were very nice and the caretakers were very nice. We were greeted with a lovely glass of wine, such a nice touch! We would recommend this as a lovely place to stay in Lanesboro. Thank you.

We had a lovely stay at the Habberstad House Bed and Breakfast. The Carriage House in which we stayed was lovely and very comfortable. The proprietors were very nice. We enjoyed a lovely glass of wine upon arrival which was a very nice touch. We would recommend it for a stay in Lanesboro.

Our two night stay at the Habberstad House was wonderful. Elaine & Mark were very welcoming & very helpful hosts, with dinner suggestions, making reservations & extra special touches. Their breakfasts were delicious! Our Scandinavian room was spacious, spotless & had a balcony that was great for relaxing with a glass wine. We are so glad we stayed here to enjoy biking on the Root River Trail.
