“Another Great Stay at Brewster's Red Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014

Upon the completion of our last trip to Lanesboro, we rebooked our rooms for this year. Well it was another incredible experience. We arrived a couple hours before the scheduled time we were to get our room, but that was no big deal as we were planning on biking anyway. We changed in the bike lock-up room and off we went.

Jim met us in the parking area and we did a quick catch up. It is so cool how both he and Pam remember your names and things we discussed last year. It really makes the stay feel like your coming to visit friends. This year we brought another couple with us. It was their first time to Lanesboro and the Red Hotel. Needless to say, they are coming back and we are bringing another couple.

We have already booked our 3 rooms for next year and cant wait to get back. I have a feeling if we can squeeze it in, we may have to try to sneak back up this year.

Thanks as always for your great hospitality.

Matt and Lynn

Eight retired teachers found Brewster's Red Hotel perfect for our summer get-away. The Studio apartment was our gathering place and the patio held a wonderful view of all the comings and goings of beautiful Lanesboro. The sleeping rooms were extremely comfortable and roomy. Owners Jim and Pam could not have been more friendly and helpful. The biking trails are all they're advertised to be. And, we couldn't even get to all of the wonderful restaurants! The food choices were extensive. We recommend Pedal Pushers and Four Daughters Winery (Spring Valley) for evening meals and for breakfast, nothing beats Spud Boy Diner for breakfast! Gordy is one fantastic cook and entertained us with stories and recipes. One of our favorite shops was the Slanted Avenue Mercantile. Owner Patrick was funny and helpful and has a very unique array of things to buy, including games, socks (!), soaps and lip "stuff"! All in all, we highly recommend Lanesboro and The Red Hotel with the highest praise. We'll be back!

We have stayed here for a long weekend for three years and love it. It's a great location....we park our car and don't use it again until we leave. We love sitting on the hill and having a cocktail and appetizers ( which we bring with us) before heading across to Root on the River for dinner. The rooms are cozy and clean..all we need as we aren't in them much. The Innkeepes are great..happy to sit and visit or to leave us alone, if they perceive that is our preference. Do be aware of the two day weekend minimum....

My hubby and I went to Lanesboro for a couple of days to bicycle. While we pick destinations for their biking opportunities we also look for quality accommodations to spend our non-biking time. Brewster's Aspen apt was a great fit. The hillside location was quiet and private. Two nice clean rooms, small kitchenette and a spacious deck made for a relaxing stay. Because we were just steps from everything hubby could have a 2nd beer at dinner (no driving).

Made a reservation a week before the day to stay could not view rooms on web page so called, no mention was made that they required two weeks to cancel room. Called to cancel and they promptly charged my credit card for full amount plus. Unfriendly rude people.

My husband and I decided to take a last-minute trip to Lanesboro. We had been there many times before, but had never stayed at Brewsters. We will plan to stay there from now on! It was like home away from home :) From the moment we showed up we were hooked-- beautiful gardens,green space to play a yard game, and build a fire at night. Our room was immaculate, we had every amenity we needed, including peace and quiet! In the morning a cute indoor porch was a great place to grab a cup of coffee and a bagel. We were thinking if there was a rainstorm, that porch would be a perfect place to play cards or games for the day. The owners (Pam and Jim) were so nice, they even brought us wine glasses to our room as we had purchased a bottle of wine from the local winery. Made us feel so welcome!! Gail & Eric, Minnesota

Room Tip: There is something for everyone here, they will explain the rooms.

This was our first stay at Brewster's Red Hotel and found it to be very clean, well main-tainted, and just all around very accommodating. The owners Jim and Pam were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again when we return to the area.
