We booked our three night break at Habberstad House after reading many positive reviews on this site. We were not disappointed.
The well maintained & historic building provided us with a very comfortable home from home. The house was stunning & our room, ( The Scandinavian Room), was very well designed with an extremely comfortable bed and an enormous jacuzzi tub to help de-stress after a tiring business trip to Minneapolis. We appreciated the well stocked coffee/tea maker in our room and made good use of the private balcony overlooking the immaculate gardens.
The thing that distinguishes Habberstad House from other quality B&Bs we have stayed in is the friendliness, helpfulness & attention to detail shown by the owners Nancy & Dave. Nancy provided good restaurant & sightseeing recommendations and helped by making reservations for us. We cannot speak highly enough of the quality of the breakfasts. They were creative, delicious & enormous! We really enjoyed our chats around the breakfast table in the morning & we left with the overwhelming impression that the owners are successful at what they do because they take pride in their home and genuinely love meeting people.
Finally, as an example of their service & consideration for their guests, I would like to mention the unexpected breakfast 'to go' that Nancy prepared for us when we had to leave very early for our flight home to the UK. Chilled boiled eggs, yoghurt, fruit, muffins, coffee & even a little labelled paper twist of salt for seasoning was provided for us. It is this willingness by the owners to go the extra mile for their guests that make Habberstadt House a place I would highly recommend to anyone wishing to visit the lovely town of Lanesboro. We can't wait for our next visit!

This was our first experience at a bed and breakfast. The hosts are very nice and the house is very clean. We loved sitting on the porch, visiting with some of the other guests. I wish they allowed dogs in their "carriage house" however as we can never go anywhere with our dogsitter in the Peace Corps now.

I was curious how a B & B could get so many consecutive 5 star ratings. Well in the case of the Habberstad House, Nancy & Dave did it by hitting on all cylinders of a Bed and Breakfast. They have a gorgeous inn and gardens, spacious rooms, pleasant and helpful hosts and sending off their visitors with an absolutely gourmet breakfast. We stayed in the Carriage Room, compared to your typical B & B room the Carriage Room is incredibly spacious (see partial picture). I can’t speak for the rest of the rooms but the Carriage Room was beautifully outfitted with wood floors an inviting Jacuzzi and state of the art electronics, two Sony stereo systems and a large screen Samson TV. The Carriage House might seem a bit much for some, but if your budget can afford it, it is worth treating yourself.

When we arrived Nancy asked if we had dinner plans, we told her no, since we had tried to make reservations at the OVH but it was closed on Mondays. She recommended a couple of other places and when we indicated that one sounded good, she called down to them and made reservations for us. Her recommendation was super; the Quarter/Quarter was a fantastic restaurant.

Our stay was a wonderful experience. As mentioned in previous reviews, Nancy and Dave are great hosts, warm, welcoming and ready to offer suggestions but never intrusive. We enjoyed hearing the history of the house and the town over a great breakfast, browsing the photo books in the parlor and strolling through the lovely grounds.
The Amish room is spacious, comfortable and quiet, just what we needed after the day’s long bike ride.
The house is beautiful, clean and well organized. My favorites: the dining room and the garden fountain.
We will be back!

We loved our recent stay at the Habberstad House Bed and Breakfast. We stayed in the carriage house and it was perfect for us! The owners Dave and Nancy are just wonderful; they are very gracious hosts and are very helpful with suggestions for restaurants and places to go. On top of all that, they are gourmet cooks - the breakfasts were just awesome. The gardens are really lovely and their house has been restored into a really outstanding Victorian home. Our stay there was so relaxing and we were within easy biking distance of the Root River Bike Trails. We would definitely stay there again and would highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast to everyone else. At the end of our stay, we left with wonderful memories of our visit and look forward to planning our next trip there.

We have stayed at this B & B three times and it has always been excellent. The landscaping around the Habberstad House is awsome and the rooms are immaculate. Dave and Nancy make you feel right at home and their breakfasts are to die for. We will definitely be back and we highly recommend to anyone.

Room Tip: All the rooms are fantastic so I would look at the brochure and decide which room you would like.
