Our Bed & Breakfast, your personal retreat

Plan a relaxing retreat at the Habberstad House Bed & Breakfast, located in Lanesboro, in Southeastern Minnesota’s historic Bluff Country along the Root River.

Built in 1897, this beautiful Queen Anne Victorian home features welcoming parlors, a dining room with a view of the gardens, and five guest rooms, all with private bathrooms. Or choose our private Carriage House, with its king bed, fireplace and spa bathroom. The beautiful landscaped yard includes a fountain and pond, flower gardens and numerous seating areas.

Come and see some of the changes we’ve made in the past year. Our beds are now adorned with luxurious microfiber sheets from Comphy.  Our Amish Suite now has two king-sized beds with beautiful new linens and Ekornes leather furniture in the sitting area. And we’ve added a loveseat, perfect for snuggling, in the Rose Suite


In 2019, we finished our first big renovation…updating the Carriage House and Amish Suite with new bathrooms.  Check out our photos under our Guest Rooms and in our photo gallery to see some of our updates.

Please call to see if we can accommodate your special occasion whether you have a birthday or anniversary, a reunion with friends or are planning your honeymoon. And as a reminder, we are licensed by the State of Minnesota and the City of Lanesboro and are members of the Minnesota Bed and Breakfast Association and the Association of Lodging Professionals as well as Inns of Choice.

COVID-19 Update: We opened briefly in March but are currently closed through mid-April. Mark and I are committed to social distancing and doing our part to flatten the curve while also protecting our health as well as our guests. We will do weekly updates on our Facebook page and here to keep you informed. 

We will evaluate each week on when we will officially reopen to serve you, our wonderful guests. We moved, cancelled or issued gift certificates for existing reservations and much appreciate everyone’s flexibility.

Please consider supporting our small business by booking a reservation for a future stay or purchasing a gift certificate. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Habberstad House soon.

And most of all we wish you, your loved ones and your friends, good health.

Elaine and Mark
