My stay at the Andor-Wenneson Inn in Peterson was marvelous! I called that day to book the reservation and Megan was helpful, kind, and welcoming. I arrived in the evening and there was parking right alongside the house. The inside of the house was decorated with antiques mixed with modern items that still had a historic charm to it. One...

I stayed in Betty's room recently for 2 nights and had a delightful time in this beautiful inn on the Root River bike trail. The furnishings and decor, cleanliness, and helpfulness of the owner Megan could not have been more perfect. I definitely would like to return to this charming inn.

I and a friend decided to go and Kayak the Root River. My Hubby found this B&B online, and gave us a great deal thru Living Social. When we arrived we were impressed with Megan, the owner. She was warm, welcoming and very accommodating. The rooms were beautiful, fresh, and very comfortable. We were enchanted with the Wenneson, it's truly... More

We went on our annual fall bike ride and wanted to avoid the crowded Root River trail near Lanesboro. Unfortunately we got the coldest and rainiest weekend of the fall. The saving grace was the Wenneson Historic Inn in Peterson. We stayed in the skillfully renovated bank building, about a block from the inn, named Pengers Vault. And yes, the... More

We biked here from Lanesboro on the Root River Trail. We didn't make a reservation beforehand, anywhere. When we arrived in the afternoon we were happy to learn that Pam and Barry had a few rooms available. We didn't make our decision to call and make a reservation until after we checked Lanesboro. Pam told me it was no problem... More

We had very nice accommodations (Coachman's Room) for our July bicycling weekend on the Root River Trail. Peterson proved to be a nice jumping off spot for our rides: to the west on Saturday and to the east on Sunday. Peterson is very small, so driving the short trip to Rushford or a bit further in the opposite direction to... More

The terrible reviews--responded to by the owner--are, i'm guessing, some sad attempt at a social media blitzkrieg by a group of nimrods. On our visit, the trash was taken out, there was plenty of toilet paper, and everything was great. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is that I'm not a huge fan of the decor (yeah...... More

First time at this bed and breakfast. My husband and I stayed in the Loft. Cute little room with skylights. Breakfast was fruit, cereal, waffles, pastries, English muffins, juice, coffee, tea. We will definitely recommend to others. Barry and Pam are wonderful.

Discovered while searching for B&B's near Lanesboro for an anniversary weekend. What a find! Right next to the Root River trail so great access. I'm really glad we stayed here rather than in Lanesboro. Fun to bike to Lanesboro but wonderful to retreat back to the Wenneson Inn for peace and quiet away from the hubbub. Our room was beautiful...

This is the second time we have visited the Wenneson and it did not disappoint. Barry and Pam are great hosts who have only your comfort in mind. This B&B is located about 14 miles from Lanesboro, so it's outside the hustle and bustle of all that goes on in Lanesboro, yet is a good bike ride into Lanesboro. This... More
