Definitely request a second floor (top floor) room, it was like the people above us were constantly getting out of bed and walking to the bathroom, or in circles. It appeared that all guests were older adults. Really strange, but very annoying and noisy during the evening, and early in the morning. First thought was economical floor/ceiling construction with no... More

Our group of 28 bicyclists stays here every year for two nights. The service is very good, the rooms are clean, and we had a great patio area for gathering as a group. Some rooms have refrigerators and/or patios. Coffee and muffins in the morning is included. Jackie, the owner, was easy to work with!

The room we had was nice and comfortable for the two of us but there is no sound-proofing in the walls or ceilings so we could hear every conversation next to us and every footstep above us. We turned in the window A/C-Heading unit to make white noise. It drown out all our neighbors because it was pretty loud. The... More

We stayed two nights this past weekend 10/18 - 10/19. The room was nice and clean and the beds were not too bad but a little hard for my liking. There was really not any wonderful view of anything out our window except a couple trees and a trailer camp on the other side of a football field. We have... More

The rooms are clean, the mattresses are firm, and the owner is helpful. Green Gables is a good deal in a town packed with over-priced bed & breakfast spots. The bike trail is just a few blocks away, the grounds are immaculate, lush & green. The only negative was the bath tub drain, which was clogged. The owner apologized and... More

I booked the Anniversary Suite for our little getaway to Lanesboro, and it really was delightful. The room is quite large and one of the most immaculately kept rooms I have ever stayed in. The whirlpool hottub was a real treat after a long day hiking and biking. The kitchen was just about the perfect size and included a coffee... More

Large comfortable rooms. Lots of hot water. Owner gives great advice about places to visit or eat. Wifi signal weak in bedroom but okay near office. Overhead fan is nice but air conditioning and dehumidifier in the room are a bit noisy. Lanesboro is great town for a weekend with access to bike trails, theater, and river sports. Would stay...

Just returned home from delightful stay at Green Gables Inn. Beautiful green setting just up from the river, clean well-equipped and nicely decorated room. Really enjoyed the experience and meeting the owner.

The Green Gables is nothing special. It's small, owned and run by Jackie for years. No hot tub, no pool, no continental breakfast. But the rooms are spotless. Some are very large, with a deck (that you share with the adjoining corner room, so it's great if you booked together, a little to cozy if you don't know the people).... More

VERY unpleasant experience!!! Checked in and filled out card stating 4 people in room. Got in to room and owner called our room phone, and said we needed to pay more because 4 people were in the room (2 queen beds). Whole time we were there, we could see her watching us out the window from the office everytime we... More
