We were up in Lanesboro weekend of June 12th. As always we were well taken care of. It is like going home to see family. Jim and Pam (the owners) are great. The property and the rooms are so well taken care of. It is super relaxing, and the location is the best in town. We have been visiting Lanesboro... More

We spent a 4 day weekend at the Red Hotel. Owners Pam and Jim are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Some rooms have very attractive and interesting locally made Amish furniture. Root River paved bicycle trail goes thru Lanesboro and offers beautiful biking. We also took in a live show at the Commonweal Theatre in Lanesboro.... More

We stayed there last week for the frist time upon the recommendation of friends. We were quite pleased and will certainly be back again. The owners are VERY friendly, the grounds were immaculate, and the room was spotless. It was easy to walk to anywhere in town, and we certainly did. The owners took the time to visit with us,...

My cousin and I stayed at Brewster's for the second time and enjoyed our second visit even more than the first one. The owners, Jim and Pam, are so hospitable. Jim very kindly helped us with our bikes, and both treated us like family. Their landscaping and flowers are wonderful. Sitting out on their terraced patios offered us a most... More

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary in Lanesboro last month and were so happy to have chosen the Red Hotel. We took full advantage of the unseasonably warm weather on the beautiful grounds located on a hillside of Main Street. The owners Jim and Pam went out of their way to make out stay enjoyable - almost felt like... More

I am very disappointed in the customer service and I've not even stayed at this hotel as of yet. We booked 2 rooms for a "girls weekend" with Pam over the phone, at no point did she explain there would be a $20 cancellation fee if we needed to cancel, nor did she refer me to their web-site policy page....

We stayed three nights at the Red Hotel in September 2014. Jim and Pam have done a great job in updating this hotel. Every room was nicely decorated and comfortably furnished. The bathrooms positively sparkled!! The grounds are lush with flowers and there are plenty of seating areas for enjoying the views. Attention has been paid to small details so... More

Stayed there twice now, once with prior owners and once recently with the new owners. Significant upgrades to the property in the past several years. Grounds are very inviting, rooms are greatly improved. New owners are great... very friendly and attentive. Only drawback for us is that the room smelled of smoke. Aired it out for the first day and... More
