Discover the Best Lanesboro Bed and Breakfast in 2022

As we button up our Lanesboro Bed and Breakfast for the winter and get ready for the cozy, restorative season ahead, we can’t help but think about next year. There’s a reason our charming and historic Bed and Breakfast has been considered the best Lanesboro MN lodging. It starts, of course, with the cozy, elegant accommodations and continues with our dedication to exceptional hospitality.

Lanesboro itself is considered the Bed and Breakfast capital of Minnesota, which says a lot about how loved this charming little town is.  The popularity of Lanesboro is thanks in part to the popularity of the incredible Root River Trail, but it’s about more than that, too.  This charming riverfront town is breathtakingly beautiful, nestled in what is commonly referred to as Minnesota’s “bluff country.”

In the otherwise flat midwest, Lanesboro is notable for its scenic high banks overlooking the Root River and the picturesque valleys.  The town itself, though, is quite a draw, and our Lanesboro Bed and Breakfast is very near the historic heart of town. It’s a great place to spend a few days, whether on or around the river or relaxing and enjoying the artsy vibe of this quaint town. As you plan out your adventures for 2022, make sure our Lanesboro Bed and Breakfast makes your list!  Book your getaway today!

The Best Lanesboro Bed and Breakfast

When it comes to lodging, Bed and Breakfasts are a far better choice than traditional hotel chains – especially if you’re looking for a welcoming and authentic place to stay. Our Lanesboro Bed and Breakfast is dedicated to welcoming hospitality and truly reflects the quaint, historic charm that Lanesboro is known for. There are plenty of great reasons to choose our Lanesboro Bed and Breakfast for your next getaway.  Here are just a few of them!

  1. Surround yourself with living history. The Habberstad House was built in 1897 and is nearly as old as Lanesboro itself. It’s been many things to the community over the years, most recently becoming a beloved Lanesboro Bed and Breakfast. The Inn retains its exquisite Queen Anne Victorian charm while still offering discerning guests a modern lodging experience.
  2. We offer just six beautiful guest rooms, each of which is uniquely decorated to reflect the history and charm of Lanesboro. You won’t have to contend with busy crowds here and instead can enjoy the quiet respite you crave. Despite the old-world charm exuded around nearly every corner of the Inn, each room is equipped with Wi-fi, central heating/air conditioning, a hairdryer, and a host of other luxury amenities.
  3. We offer plenty of cozy common areas for our guests to enjoy, so you aren’t confined to your room. Our parlor is a great place to curl up with a good book or play a board or card game from our shelves. Coffee, cookies, chocolates, tea, and fresh apples are always available in the parlor, too. And even in late fall, our front porch and gardens make for a peaceful respite.
  4. Every morning of your stay, we’ll serve you a delicious and gourmet breakfast. We start with fresh fruit, often served either with local cheese or homemade granola. Following that, we’ll serve a rotating selection of main dishes, which includes things like a savory quiche, oven-baked French toast, applesauce pancakes, pannekoeken, and so much more. You won’t leave our table hungry!
  5. We’re well-located near downtown Lanesboro, offering easy access to everything you want to do while here. Our Lanesboro Bed and Breakfast is a leisurely six-block stroll from downtown Lanesboro and an equally easy drive to any point along the Root River Trail, as well as Amish farms.

  2. There’s more to the Root River Trail than biking – it’s also a great place to get out on the water for some canoeing, kayaking, or tubing!  The Root River Water Trail follows the river, much like the bike path, through quaint towns and points of interest. The river is mostly a gentle flow, and you can rent canoes and kayaks in Lanesboro at Root River Outfitters.

  5. Eagle Bluff Environmental Learning Center is a great place to enjoy a walk. They offer over 9 miles of trails around their campus that are open to the public, with opportunities for birding, hiking, mountain biking, and more.
  6. We offer our guests discounted tickets to Lanesoboro’s Commonweal Theater, which is a must-do of things to do in Lanesboro, MN!  This small town prides itself on the rich artistic experiences here, and the theater is just the beginning.
  7. Lanesboro is also a great place to enjoy a round of golf, and the best place to do it is the Lanesboro Golf Club, which offers a 9-hole course. This club was established in 1929 and is an excellent place for a morning or evening round.
