Great place to stay

5 on August 28, 2017

We just stayed in the Carriage House at the Habberstad House and it was a great time. The entire property is beautiful (we peeked into all of the rooms at the end of our stay and they all looked great!), with the gardens being a great place to sit and enjoy a glass or two of wine. The morning breakfasts were exceptional.....more food than either of us could eat. We toured a number of the other highly rated places to stay in Lanesboro, and this is by far the best. I costs a little more than some of the other places, but well worth the extra money. Can't wait to go back.

Habberstad House plus Lanesboro equals Priceless

We were in town for a wedding and what a great time we had. Lanesboro was great, but the B&B was beyond our expections. And breakfast was awesome. Thanks.


Wonderful experience.

Beautiful house, lovely gardens and delightful hosts. Oh yes, can't leave out the breakfast which was wonderful. My sister and I had the Amish room which is really spacious, has a little sitting area, a table, games to play and a coffee maker. We had a great time.

Innkeeper Response
We enjoyed having both of you visit. Hope to see you again!
