When we booked this B & B, it was because our previous Inn was booked. Then, when we arrived, I had been coughing fiercely and keeping my husband from sleeping. I asked if I could crash on the couch in the common room, and Marv made up another bed for me so if I needed it in the night, it... More

If you're looking for a peaceful, quiet, off the beaten track home with pleasant rooms and really nice people to welcome you, this would be it! Carol bakes bread every morning, and some is delivered outside your room with morning beverage as early as you want it, and she does great imaginative breakfasts. Small enough so all the guests can... More

We have only stayed at a B&B once before years ago and wasn't sold on the experience so never did it again. This place was so lovely and Marv and Carol are absolutely wonderful people who pay so much attention to details in the rooms and throughout the property. The room was spotless and had a private bathroom and lovely... More

We wanted to have a peaceful weekend in the area and I picked this B&B because it seemed to have a personal touch. My teenage daughter at first was upset because she was used to hotels with swimming pools, fitness centers and retaurants. But from the moment we walked in until we left, we experienced nothing but love and warmth... More

This great B&B is a gem. Many other travelers detail the cookies, the morning bread delivery and the spaciousness but they are not exaggerating! It really is all that and more. My family gathered at Hillcrest Hide-Away from 3 different states in August. Each of our rooms were large and nicely decorated. We enjoyed the outdoor seating area and had... More

We enjoyed a very pleasant overnight at this charming bed and breakfast. Wonderful room (the Hope room) with an outdoor patio to enjoy on a rainy evening. Marv was a great host. There was a plentiful supply of beverages and homemade cookies when we checked in. Warm bread and coffee delivered to our room at 7 a.m. in the morning... More

My husband and I stayed at the Hillcrest Hide-Away for 2 nights and found Carol and Marv to be fantastic hosts! Upon arrival we were given a jar of freshly baked cookies. We stayed in the "Peace Room" which was very spacious, clean, and quiet. Fresh-baked bread and our choice of drink was delivered every morning outside our door, with... More

Had a wonderful stay at Hillcrest Hideaway in Lanesboro. Carol and Marv are very attentive hosts. The room was spacious, and had many amenities which made the stay pleasant. We liked that it had wi-fi, and also a personal air conditioner in our room. The delivery of fresh-baked bread, juice, and coffee before breakfast was a wonderful way to start... More

Just today, we returned home from a couple relaxing nights in Lanesboro. We love the community--the biking, the theater, the shops and the great food (from simple to gourmet). Carol happily made dinner reservations for us. This was our first, but not last stay that the Hillcrest Hide-Away. Carol & Marv are great hosts, happy, cheerful, knowledgeable & interesting. The...
