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.

We are so excited to reopen in mid-March for the 2022 season. We are making a few changes (especially some new breakfast items) and are excited to share them with you.

We have made many adjustments with COVID, but please know all of our staff are fully vaccinated. We continue to seek recommendations on the best ways for us to safely provide services for our guests.  Please take a look at our safety plan for COVID.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Habberstad House soon. Book your stay now for 2022.

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