I stayed two nights in the Hope room in connection with my quest to bike the Root River Trail and the Preston/Harmony Trail. Carol and Marv were very welcoming and helpful providing information on local restaurants, the trails and other things of local interest.. The breakfasts were very good and the breads and muffins were fresh baked and delicious. The... More

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. The rains have been regular this summer. The good news is that makes the gardens grow well without watering. The bad news is that I need to mow the lawn weekly. However, that is good exercise for me. Marv More

This was a wonderful weekend getaway. I would recommend this bed and breakfast to any couple. The food was great and Marv and Carol made our first bed and breakfast a great experience. We will be back!

We always enjoy treating guests to their first B&B stay. We encourage them to try others when they travel because each inn has its own charm. More

If you are in the area, stay with Marv and Carol. They really do want you to enjoy your time in their town and in their home. Carol bakes yummy concoctions everyday, filling the house with inviting aromas and giving you a great start for your day. You can even take leftovers with you for a picnic on the river.... More

Thank you for your gracious review. We do bake enough bread each day to assure leftovers for all of the guests to enjoy the rest of the day. Many of them buy some cheese and make a picnic lunch. More

We had a wonderful, peaceful stay at Hillcrest Hideaway. We enjoyed warm and creative breakfasts followed by all the amenities of Lanesboro: Root River tubing, downtown shops and eats, and adventuring around the scenic and cozy surroundings. Marv and Carol couldn't have been more professional and courteous during our stay, while treating us like family as we awoke with a... More

We only stayed two weekday nights, but we enjoyed the accomodations and area so much we plan to return soon for a weekend. Marv and Carol are great hosts, and the room, coffee delivered to the room each morning, and breakfast were all wonderful. Paul & Darlene

Our group of 5 had a GREAT stay this past weekend for our Girls Weekend trip.

This was only the 2nd time in 12 years of business that we have left our inn in the hands of an inn sitter. We are glad that Betsy was a delightful host during your visit. Thanks for your review. 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.

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
