— Shannon and Randall, Port Angeles, WA
"While here I’ve been reading a book, “Can’t Wait to Get to Heaven” I believe you two have given Debbie and me a taste of heaven now. The delicious breakfasts, the warm hospitality, the beautiful landscape, the spacious room, the endearing stories, have all conspired to make these 5 days one of our most memorable getaways. God willing, we’ll return before we get to heaven. —Can’t wait." — Fondly, Steve and Debbie
"This was serendipity – you have though of everything! Our favorites: the porch (thank you for ordering a starlit sky!), the ironed bed lines, the carrot cake for breakfast, and the perfectly groomed lawn and garden, with the fountain. This was truly a respite from our busy lives, and a perfect way to celebrate a birthday. Thank you for your care and attention to our every need." — Brenda and Kevin, Waseca, MN

"Thank you so much for being such warm, friendly and attentive hosts. The Orchid Room was so very comfortable, bright and inviting….it was a wonderful place to sped our first week of married life. Your home is absolutely beautiful and tastefully decorated. Everyone in Lanesboro commented on what a wonderful place this is and what a great couple you are. Thanks for all the great ideas on how to fatten up my husband - what superb breakfasts! We are looking forward to spending future anniversaries here!" — David and Billie, Fort Dodge, IA
"This concludes our 5th trip to Lanesboro and to the Habberstad House. We always come for a week each time and find that it is scarecely enough. For the first time we biked over 200 miles – what a treasure this area is! We appreciate Nancy and Dave more each time….and we are booking our next stay today ….before we leave. Thanks for everything!" —Doug and Martha, Des Moines/Iowa City, IA

"Even better the second time around. We are now looking forward to our next visit." — Beryl and Bernard, London, England

"Staying in the Heather Room was a wonderful way to celebrate our 25th anniversary. We loved relaxing in the whirlpool tub with soft music playing in the background. The house and grounds were spectacular with all the surrounding colors of fall. We slept well! Thanks for a wonderful, refreshing experience (our first at a B&B). Great breakfast! Awesome conversation!" — Devry and Elaine, Wahpeton, ND
"They say the second time is charmed but for us it's the third. We've stayed at two other B&B's in recent years but they don't compare. The upkeep and overall decoration of this house and the gardens surrounding it are simply wonderful. My wife and I enjoyed very much our time here in Lanesboro, especially our decision to stay at the Habberstad House. Thanks!! For the enjoyable getaway." — Bill and Ellen, Bemidji, MN
