The Cottage House Inn is a family-owned and managed. There are no televisions or phones in the rooms, which help make this hotel a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of our modern world. There is a shared common room with a refrigerator, microwave, and even an old piano for sing-a-longs. Breakfast is available on weekends... More

This is the second time we have stayed at the Cottage House Inn. We liked it so much the first time, we knew we wanted to bring our Norwegian relatives there! This hotel has old country charm like the rest of Lanesboro. It is spotlessly clean and the staff is very friendly and accommodating! If you bring your own bikes... More

Enjoyed a few days vacation, and was looking for a quiet and inexpensive hotel. Very clean rooms with free wifi. No phone or TV in rooms, but where there for the scenery and time to get away so did not need them. Also, no breakfast on week days, but we brought our own and they have toaster, microwave fridge, and... More

We've stayed here three times now, primarily to serve as our HQ for bicycle trail riding along the wonderful Root River Trail system. Very basic... no in-room TV (hooray!!), simple decor, charming owners who have all kinds of suggestions of local area museums and events to visit. They have a secured, fully enclosed shed to house your bikes safely (and... More

The room was comfortably furnished, clean, and quiet. There was a large community room with lots of tables and chairs, a refrigerator and sink. In addition, there was a living room area with a TV and yet another room where coffee and tea and hot chocolate were always available. We could lock up our bikes in the shed and then... More

I've been visiting Lanesboro for over ten years, for get away time, to see the great plays at the Commonweal, to shop, visit Decorah not that far away, and always stay at Cottage House Inn. It is comfortable and has the perfect location; I park my car when I arrive, then walk everywhere else. They are located right across from... More

My daughters and I stayed at the Cottage House for three nights. We had a first floor room that was very quiet and clean. The staff offered extra towels right away and were always available. Although they only serve breakfast on weekends, we were conveniently located downtown near all the great restaurants. We chose a different restaurant each day and... More
