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.


Nicest B&B We've Ever Stayed In

5 on October 07, 2016

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.

Habberstad B&B

4.0 on September 23, 2016

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.


Anniversary stay

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.


Outstanding B&B!

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.


Wonderful bike vacation

Carriage house was a wonderful place to rest after long days of biking around the Root River. Breakfast was wonderful!


Wonderful

We have stayed at a lot off b and b before, and this. By far is our favorite. The rose Rom is so clean and well kept...it has been well cared for. The breakfast was so nice and it was wonder you that the owner and dog joined us. The gardens and groans are so pretty and well kept up. This is going to be an annual tradition for sure. Ellen and David


Best B & B in Lanesboro!

We enjoyed our recent stay very, very much, from the room to the relaxing front porch!


Great B & B Experience

5 on August 09, 2016

I've only been to 1 other B & B so my experience with them is limited; we stayed here for 1 night and would do it again in an instant. The rooms were cleaner than most hotels I've been in, and there was even a faint floral smell to the linens. We stayed in the "Orchid" room while our adult daughter stayed in the "Heather" room; both were achingly beautiful in their decor and amenities. The homeowners had good knowledge of the history of the place, and there were scrapbooks in the common rooms that detailed the original owners. It was a Monday night but the house was full (10 guests total) - still, we slept well, for it was as quiet as if we were the only ones there. Guest ages ranged from 17 to 65+ (I learned this at breakfast) - oh, and the breakfast was to die for! Not only were we new to B & B's but we had never visited Lanesboro before. Again, the homeowners were helpful in advising and pointing us in the directions we wished to go. I'd recommend Habberstad House to anyone wishing
