Everything about our 30th anniversary was outstanding. Peter was very friendly and welcoming on the phone and in person. The room was charming with an antique dresser and vanity, our own little table inside and outside on our balcony and a cool dumbwaiter where we kept getting coffee and delicious breakfast courses from the trap door and pulley. The direct...

This is a very well-maintained and charming property. The food is excellent and inventive and the coffee is wonderful. There is storage for bicycles outback. The owners are friendly but don't have her, and very knowledgeable about the area. We stayed in the Garden Room which has a dumb waiter and you can get breakfast served in your room the...

We had a wonderful stay at the Scandinavian Inn in Lanesboro, MN. Many thanks to our hosts, Vicky and Peter. Thank you for the wonderful food! You went above and beyond, and we truly appreciate it! We enjoyed the special spaces you've created, the front porch, the terrace, the game room, the gazebo.

My husband and I came to Lanesboro and stayed at the Scandinavian Inn for 3 nights to celebrate our first anniversary. The town and the inn exceeded our expectations! From the time we arrived, to the sad time we needed to pack up and head home, everything was simply perfect. Peter and Vicki and fantastic hosts and we felt right...

The choices are many in the B&B Capitol of Minnesota, and choose well we did. Peter and Vicky have created a comfortable and welcoming retreat, with several rooms both indoors and out to enjoy conversation, share a bottle of champagne, or simply take a catnap. Our first night, we climbed the spiral stair to the rooftop gazebo to watch the...

My husband and I stayed overnight for our 24th anniversary. We stayed in the Birdsnest, which was at the top floor. There was a deck off the bedroom and steps leading up to the turret where we had a nice view of the area. The breakfast this morning was absolutely fantastic. The hosts had asked previously if we had any...

This was our first visit to Lanesboro and our stay at the Scandinavian Inn was given to us a gift. My husband and I were celebrating our 39th wedding anniversary. We could not have asked for a more special weekend made possible by Peter and Vicki. We stayed in the Balcony Room and our breakfast was delivered to us by...

We had a great room on the 1st floor, which was quiet and restful. The breakfast was also wonderful and more than enough to get us on our way for the day. The home is easy to find and close to the bike trails. We would stay here again.

Here is a B&B where you will be very well taken care of and fed a truly exceptional and capacious breakfast. The owners take care of their guests, with a guided tour of the premises, tea and coffee service in the morning, and then one of the best breakfasts you will ever eat. Highly recommended.

This year was our 3rd annual late summer weekend in Lanesboro, our 3rd B&B, and the best breakfast so far. Organic and local, it's also at foodie level quality without being "weird" that can come with organic foodie food. Really delicious. Peter and Vicki do a nice job of participating in the guest conversation "just enough" - hanging back when...
