This was my wife and my (after 25 years of marriage) first trip to a B&B. We loved the beautiful grounds and sat and read the paper and played cribbage under the huge pines. The room was decorated to the nines and, while smaller, had a two person hot tub and comfortable bed. The breakfast was a unique pasta/breakfast dish... More

The Historic Scanlan House is exactly what a good B&B should be. Beautiful old house with lots of antiques and thoughtful detail, friendly and helpful hosts, interesting guests, comfortable rooms. Did I mention the breakfast? Wow. Delicious, big and beautifully served in lovely old dining rooms.

What a neat historic house that neatly decorated and landscaped. The house felt cozy and welcoming and the innkeepers were very friendly and accommodating. We had no real complaints but would have liked a quick tour of the house but wasn't offered. No big deal though. It's just interesting to hear the history of the places we stay. We stayed... More

My spouse and I have stayed at numerous B&Bs (including 2 different B&Bs in 2 different towns in the past week), and I can honestly say that Scanlan House is one of the best. Our room (Masquerade) was very clean, pretty, and roomy enough for two people. I placed my carry-on suitcase on the luggage stand, my spouse opened his... More

This is our second time staying at the Historic Scanlan House Bed and Breakfast Inn in Lanesboro, MN. The place is just as delightful as I remembered it. This time we stayed in the Masquerade Room which is on the second floor and has the turret balcony that is one of the architectural highlights of this home. The room is... More

This was such a lovely place to stay. The rooms were decorated nicely and very clean. The lawn area has numerous seating areas with beautiful flowers. The breakfast was so nice. Very delicious and displayed beautifully! We were very impressed with everything.

My Brother, his girlfriend and my wife and I celebrated our Mom and Dad's 60th wedding anniversary with a 2 day stay at the Scanlon. We occupied the 'Sunrise', Steepleview', and Safari suites and had a great time. It was nice to sit out on the porch outside of the Safari suite. Mary and Kirsten are gracious hosts, providing us...

We really had a great time at The Scanlon House. We stayed in the Masquerade Suite and enjoyed wine from the Scenic Valley Winery on the balcony. Mary and Kirstin were outstanding hosts, great storytellers, and great chefs. We look forward to staying there again.

We spent two nights in the Scanlan House as three couples. We were all on the second floor and added the cost of the three rooms and divided by three. The rooms were all very well decorated and clean. All rooms had whirlpool baths, which we didn't use and would have preferred showers. We think whirlpools in the rooms are... More
