Not many people venture to Peterson, but choose to stay in Lanesboro instead. I didn't even know there was a B&B in Peterson until now. We stayed at the Wenneson for one night. Pam, the owner, was very accomodating and very friendly. We were in the Coachman Room, which was beautifully decorated, very clean and very roomy. The B&B is... More

We took a long weekend for biking and sightseeing. Peterson is located ideally in the middle of the Root River State Trail. The Wenneson was bought by the owners about 17 years ago, I believe, rebuilt by the owners and operated as a B&B until about seven years ago when it was sold on a contract for deed. The deed... More

Monday was a great day for staying at the Wenneson Inn in Peterson, MN. We could check in early enough to enjoy a 14 mile bike ride to Lanesboro where we bought tickets to that night's performance at the Commonweal Theater. Back at the Inn we enjoyed the friendly hospitality of Pam and Barry. Up early on Tuesday for a... More

I was in the area for business and was a little hesitant to stay at a bed and breakfast because I wasn't sure what to expect. I stayed in the treehouse room...very comfortable bed and very nice, thick towels. Great waffles, fruit & coffee for breakfast. The current owners have only been operating the inn since July 2009, but were... More

I was dissapointed, as I had booked the room off of a website, and because they are new owners they did not honor the pricing or the M-Th special. The breakfast was fine, as we had waffles, fruit, yogurt, juice and coffee etc. The owners seemed really nice and knowledgable of what is in the area. Next time I book... More

At this time the Kelly's were running the Inn. We are the original owners (The Erickson's) and do honor the special prices for Sunday thru Thursday. More

We had a great mid-week, two-nite stay in this lovely hotel right on the Root River bike trail. Charming hosts, clean attractive rooms. Everything we wanted in a romantic get-a-way! Highly recommend for privacy, comfort and convenience to the bike trail.

The inn is conveniently located on the Root River Bike Trail. The room was perfect for us: quiet, a comfortable bed, two armchairs with a good reading light, and thick towels in the bathroom. We enjoyed talking with other guests over breakfast. After a breakfast of cereal, waffles, yoghurt, fruit, juice, and coffee, we were ready for a day of... More

Most of the guests in the hotel came to bike. Breakfast didn't start until 8:30 AM and was limited to boxed cereal, waffles from a mix, and a dab of yogurt with small bowls of blueberries raspberries for all of us to share. It was accompanied by juice out of a can and Folgers coffee. We hunted for the owners... More

The couple that had the Wenneson at this time had only been in the business for slightly more than a month. They are no longer here, the original owners, Barry and Pam, are now back. More

Visiting Lanesboro at the last minute with friends, we were delighted to get two really nice rooms at the Wenneson Historic Inn (both with whirlpool baths). Wenneson is located in Peterson, MN about 12 miles from Lanesboro, and we'll never stay in Lanesboro again. The Inn is literally 40 feet from the Root river trail and a 15 minute scenic... More
