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

My wife and I have repeated our stays at the Hillcrest Hide-Away bed and breakfast for the obvious reason--We have thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing stays with great nutritional breakfasts.

We were traveling this summer all around staying one night here. The 1st thing that surprised me is we weren't in the door 2 minutes and he wanted to be paid.

Had a great time in Lanesboro and staying with Carol and Marv in their B&B! Great coffee and bread at our door at 7 a.m. and then a delicious breakfast served in the dining room with 8 other guests! If you ever go to Lanesboro, check out Hillcrest Hide-Away B&B. You won't be sorry! Thank you! Paul and Cheryl

Pleasant rooms true to the Craftsman style. Comfortable beds and furnishings. Wonderful hosts that you'd expect in a B&B (and not always get). A picturesque and quiet small town to enjoy. Hillcrest Hide-Away B&B has it all. Add to that homemade cookies and bread to your door, and a breakfast worthy of a trendy restaurant. This place is worth returning... More
