“What wonderful place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

The house was great, our room was very comfortable and enjoyed the jetted tub. The breakfast was unbelievable, best meals of the whole trip. Dave and Nancy were wonderful hosts, great service and fun conversation.

I wanted to plan a special surprise for my husbands birthday where we could bike the local trails and relax in Lanesboro. I must say, this was idyllic! The home and grounds were well kept and appointed with beautiful decor that suited the style of the home. We were greeted with white wine and beer (our drinks of choice) and a tour of the home.

We enjoyed the accommodations in the Scandinavian room which included a very comfortable bed, whirlpool tub and our private bath and our own balcony where we enjoyed coffee in the morning before breakfast. I was particularly pleased with the Keurig in our room so I could have my first cup before breakfast. The room was well organized, spacious, so comfortable and cozy and beautiful. I also noticed that we didn't hear any other guests thanks to the hallway that separated our entrance from the other rooms. It made for a very peaceful night for us.

They also have a place where we could store our bikes, which we appreciated very much!

Nancy and Dave were pleasant, helpful and offered great suggestions for guests as needed for dinner and entertainment. I loved that when I confirmed my room I received lots of information about the Lanesboro area from them. It was very helpful in making our plans!

I would highly reccommend the Habberstad House to anyone who needs to getaway, relax and enjoy a peaceful and wonderful time! We cannot wait to go back!

Room Tip: Scandinavian room features a private bathroom, whirlpool for 2, its own balcony and is very spacious...

We went to Lanesboro for the biking and chose Habberstad House as a place to sleep. It was much more--a beautiful home with gracious hosts and wonderful hospitality. It is exceptionally clean and well maintained. The gardens are beautiful. Our room was spacious and had everything we needed and more. A welcoming glass of wine was much appreciated, and we sipped it as we sat on our balcony overlooking the gardens, complete with fountain. We could not have asked for anything more. The hosts provided us excellent information so we could make our choice for dinner at a local restaurant. Then back for a good nights sleep followed by a fabulous breakfast. We also had a place to securely store our bikes--very nice feature. We will return here and will recommend this B and B to all our friends.

We stayed in the carriage house due to our wedding weekend and needing some extra space. The carriage house was immaculately clean and we were blown away at how big the space was. Breakfast was brought to us each morning and because of wedding activities, they were so helpful about accommodating the time food was delivered. The food was simply amazing to say the least. We can hardly wait to have an anniversary trip back to the carriage house next summer!

Dave and Nancy run an operation that is nothing short of amazing. We stayed in the Scandinavian Room and were instantly blown away upon seeing the room. It was beautifully furnished and went so far above and beyond what the pictures showed it as. The private balcony was fantastic for enjoying a quiet evening watching the fireflies or hearing the birds sing in the morning. The house as a whole is put together extremely well and the attention to detail is evident from the furnishing and trimwork inside to the perfectly manicured landscape on the outside. The owners knowledge of the area and history of the area is second to none and made for both great conversation and was very helpful in deciding things to do in the area. The breakfasts were top notch, homemade and suitable for a gourmet restaurant and the coffee was delicious. They were accommodating to my girlfriends gluten free needs as well as other guests vegetarian needs and were still able to turn out very filling and delicious breakfasts for all. Dave and Nancy were as hospitable as we could have ever hoped them to be and we are so grateful they allowed us into their home. Our future stays at any B&B's will forever be benchmarked against our weekend at the Habberstad House!

Just returned from a weekend with my husband in Lanesboro, MN and we stayed at the Habberstad House. Dave and Nancy are the most wonderful inn-keepers. Their hospitality, excellent breakfasts, historical knowledge and fine recommendations made our stay seem way too short! The accommodations were fantastic -- the whole house was beautifully decorated, each piece carefully chosen, and the place was spotless. The beds were super comfortable and their attention to the little details (bottled water in the rooms, extra pillows, beverage upon arrival, etc.) made all the difference. They were so friendly, yet sensitive to ensuring they weren't intrusive. An added benefit was the great folks we met while staying there--fun to chat with and share some laughs and stories. We've stayed at several other B & B's and this one tops the charts! A definite on our places to return to!

My wife and I started at this B&B in the last few days. The Victorian home was exceedingly well furnished with sturdy, period appropriate furnishings. The breakfasts were fabulous, the rooms spotless and the hosts, Nancy and Dave engaging, good conversationalists and very nice people. You will not want to miss this one.
