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. Our beds are now adorned with luxurious microfiber sheets and blankets from Comphy.  Our Amish Suite and Carriage House have beautiful Ekornes leather furniture in the sitting areas. 


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 Select Registry, Minnesota Bed and Breakfast Association and the Association of Lodging Professionals as well as Inns of Choice.

COVID-19 Update: We are currently renting out our Carriage House with a two-night minimum. We plan to reopen the rest of the rooms in the house in mid April though the end of October 2021.

New this year is a two-night minimum stay year round. For the 2021 season, we will continue our relaxed cancellation policy due to the pandemic. If you need to cancel your existing reservation, we will return your deposit, less a $35 processing fee. You also can move your reservation to a later date for pandemic-related cancellations. Changes or cancellations need to be done by phoning us at 507-467-3560 or sending us an e-mail at info@habberstadhouse.com. 

We are working within Minnesota Department of Health’s and the CDC’s recommendations on the best ways for us to safely provide services for our guests. Our dining room and most public spaces in the house are currently closed, but we are offering breakfast to you in your private room. Also, please know we are communicating with the other small businesses in Lanesboro on meeting your needs here as well. Please take a look at our safety plan for COVID.

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.
