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

Everything about our 30th anniversary was outstanding. Peter was very friendly and welcoming on the phone and in person. The room was charming with an antique dresser and vanity, our own little table inside and outside on our balcony and a cool dumbwaiter where we kept getting coffee and delicious breakfast courses from the trap door and pulley. The direct... More

The owners are friendly but don't have her, and very knowledgeable about the area. We stayed in the Garden Room which has a dumb waiter and you can get breakfast served in your room the... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Scandinavian Inn in Lanesboro, MN. Many thanks to our hosts, Vicky and Peter. Thank you for the wonderful food! You went above and beyond, and we truly appreciate it! We enjoyed the special spaces you've created, the front porch, the terrace, the game room, the gazebo.

My husband and I came to Lanesboro and stayed at the Scandinavian Inn for 3 nights to celebrate our first anniversary. The town and the inn exceeded our expectations! From the time we arrived, to the sad time we needed to pack up and head home, everything was simply perfect. Peter and Vicki and fantastic hosts and we felt right... More

The choices are many in the B&B Capitol of Minnesota, and choose well we did. Peter and Vicky have created a comfortable and welcoming retreat, with several rooms both indoors and out to enjoy conversation, share a bottle of champagne, or simply take a catnap. Our first night, we climbed the spiral stair to the rooftop gazebo to watch the... More

My husband and I stayed overnight for our 24th anniversary. We stayed in the Birdsnest, which was at the top floor. There was a deck off the bedroom and steps leading up to the turret where we had a nice view of the area. The breakfast this morning was absolutely fantastic. The hosts had asked previously if we had any... More

This was our first visit to Lanesboro and our stay at the Scandinavian Inn was given to us a gift. My husband and I were celebrating our 39th wedding anniversary.

We had a great room on the 1st floor, which was quiet and restful. The breakfast was also wonderful and more than enough to get us on our way for the day. The home is easy to find and close to the bike trails. We would stay here again.

Here is a B&B where you will be very well taken care of and fed a truly exceptional and capacious breakfast. The owners take care of their guests, with a guided tour of the premises, tea and coffee service in the morning, and then one of the best breakfasts you will ever eat. Highly recommended.
