We had a great stay in the Treetop Suite, and enjoyed the viewing the fall colors from the gazebo. Peter and Vicki are the perfect hosts, and are as charming as their home. The tea service before breakfast was a thoughtful touch. Breakfast was truly amazing. Every dish was beautifully presented and wonderfully prepared. We'd definitely return!

Excellent, though short stay. Breakfast was well made, tasty and plentiful. Delightful conversation with other visitors. Rooms are well appointed, spacious and comfortable. Common area was interesting and spacious but cozy. Small world - St Olafs connection Thank you Peter and Vickie

We just love staying here. We have stayed here 6 times. It's my husband's and my favorite getaway spot. The treetop suite is their newest room and the one we always stay in. It is nice and big with lots of sunlight. The rooftop gazebo is great. It gives a beautiful view of the town and surrounding hills. The hospitality... More

Peter and Vicki are the ultimate hosts in their charming B and B. They have thought of everything to accommodate guests, beginning with early morning coffee at your door. Their breakfasts are legendary, superbly prepared and presented. There are many reasons to visit Lanesboro, but thyne Scandanavian Inn is reason enough.

We loved staying in this charming B & B! Our hosts, Peter & Vicki were friendly and helpful and definitely went the extra mile...warm cookies were waiting for us after our evening at the play; coffee & tea are available at any time in the "butler's pantry;" carafes of water were always available in a small fridge upstairs.

We stayed two nights at this lovely B&B owned and operated by Peter and Vicki. They welcomed us into their home and we enjoyed every minute of our two night stay in Lanesboro. The minute we arrived, Peter greeted us, gave us a tour of the home and showed us to our room. We had brought our bicycles to ride... More

My husband and I greatly enjoyed this B&B. Beautiful furnishings, great breakfast, and friendly hosts. We appreciated all the attention to details - bike storage, carafes of cold filtered water, information on restaurants, brochures, etc. We enjoyed a glass of wine in the roof-top gazebo. Romantic. Easy to make reservations.

My wife and I greatly enjoyed our stay with Peter and Vicki at the Scandinavian Inn. The Victorian house is beautifully furnished, and they make every effort to help one feel welcomed and comfortable. The breakfast was over the top! We will stay here again if or when we return to Lanesboro.

Balcony room, charming, memorable treat with organic breakfast served up on the dumb waiter. Private patio amid deep green trees. Delightful to have tea in the gazebo on the roof.

Peter and Vicki were very gracious and welcoming hosts. Their B&B is beautiful and well kept, the room was very comfortable, and the elegant breakfast included locally sourced foods - even raspberries from their garden! They will give you tips regarding activities and restaurants in the area. If you go, don't miss a play at the Commonweal Theatre nearby. We... More
