Our group of 5 had a GREAT stay this past weekend for our Girls Weekend trip. Carol and Marv were gone this past weekend- but their sub Betsy was fabulous- she has a great sense of humor and we enjoyed our time at the B&B. We had the Hope and Harmony rooms- they worked out perfect for our group. Plenty... More

We have stayed at Hillcrest for many years. The rooms are well kept, warm and large. Most importantly the hosts make the visit. They make us feel welcome and the breakfasts are always a treat. I love Carol's baking and Marv's edible flowers. Well worth the visit and it makes the time in Lanesboro all that much more fun.

It is always a treat for us to host groups of friends - especially when we are able to get to know you better. We're glad you enjoyed our recommendations - especially the scenic overlook and the lefse factory in Rushford. More

We have now stayed in 8 different B&Bs in the Lanesboro area. This has been our favorite for many reasons; charming immaculate 1920s craftsman home located in more private area, tastefully decorated, very spacious and comfortable suites, a deck to enjoy the best B&B view in Lanesboro, a delicious beautifully presented breakfast and hosted by warm charming people. Also cookies... More

My niece and I visited Lanesboro during her spring break for a few days (she is 15) had a great 2 nights stay and the Hillcrest Hide-Away. Stayed in the Harmony suite which has a sitting room and bedroom. We loved the morning basket with warm bread and our choice of beverage. So nice to open the door and retrieve... More

My husband and I stayed at Hillcrest Hide-Away for an anniversary weekend, and we had a great time of relaxation during our stay! We especially enjoyed the fresh-baked bread each morning as we awakened, and the delicious and unique breakfast items served. We really felt pampered! In addition, the town is small and quaint, with a nice bicycle path alongside... More

Wonderful, wonderful host-will do everything in their power to make sure you enjoy your time. Very comfortable accomodations. It is on top of hill (the name says it all), but really great views and would recommend to all

Now that it is fall and a few leaves are off the neighbors trees, we enjoy the view of the bluffs across the river from our 2nd story deck. We look forward to your next visit. More

We have been going to Lanesboro each fall for over ten years and had stayed at Stone Mill Suites for all but one of those years. However, because of the declining quality of their breakfast, we decided to try Hillcrest Hideaway. That was a great decision! Marv and Carol are wonderful hosts! Their home is very comfortable and clean and... More

Because a person is always looking for the next experience to be better you hate to say something a five. But Carol and Marv's house had just the right amount of charm and modern convenience. It helps that Laneboro is the center of the best bike trail on the plant. The food was excellent and the rooms were spacious and... More

At first we thought Marv and Carol were kind of stand offish. How wrong we were! They are great hosts. Marv and Carol are great conversationalist and gracious hosts/hostess. Carol's meals were good as she made much from scratch. All was good. A neat thing about this place is they bring a pot of coffee and a loaf of bread... More
