Great weekend get away

Went on a Sunday night and had a great evening. The room was big and had an excellent atmosphere to it. The staff was friendly and provided an excellent breakfast in the morning. The "Sunrise" room was quiet and perfect for our celebration. We both agreed that we would go back again.

Gorgeous Residence

Mary and her family went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable while we were in the Victorian Room! friendly atmosphere and a gorgeous residence to say the least! Would recommend anyone who has not visited the Scanlan House to do so as soon as possible! You won't be disappointed!

Fabulous and Beautiful place to relax and get away!

We recently spent my birthday weekend in Lanesboro, where we took in the local sites, including Amish country, riding the paved bike trail, tubing on the Root River, seeing a hilarious production of the "Putnam County Spelling Bee" at the Commonweal Theatre, as well as shopping and dining in this fun and picturesque little town in Minnesota's Driftless area. Our stay at the Scanlan House was a refreshing retreat amid all of that activity. The rooms were cozy, with super comfy beds, and our convivial hosts put on a perfect balance of unpretentious friendly service with amazing gourmet breakfasts in a relaxed vibe in their gorgeous home. We even found time to chill with a glass of wine in one of the many corners of their beautiful garden. HIGHLY RECOMMEND pampering yourself with a stay here!

Amazing Full Service Breakfast and Friendly Host

The rooms were very clean, unique and quiet. The full service breakfast was amazing with great presentation and flavor. The hosts was very friendly and informative about things to see in the area. We had a very enjoyable stay at our first bed and breakfast and will definitely be doing this again.

Great Getaway

Busy place, so booked a Sunday night stay. Staff were excellent and took care of us. Romantic setup in the room won't be forgotten for a long time. Breakfast was amazing and with visiting lasted over 90 min. A great B&B that we will visit again.

Wonderful Stay in Lanesboro

We enjoyed our visit to Lanesboro and our stay at Scanlan House was great. The service was exceptional and the rooms were very clean and quiet. If we are ever in the neighborhood again we will not hesitate to stay there.

Lovely B&B in Lanesboro, MN

We stayed here for two nights last week. It was wonderful and relaxing. Our hosts, Kirsten and her mother Mary, were great. We felt very welcome and the food each morning was delicious. We enjoyed our stay so much that we booked a return trip in October for another two night stay to view fall colors. I highly recommend this place if you are looking for a cozy B&B that has a lot of charm and is located in a quiet area just outside downtown Lanesboro.

Best of the Best

My wife and I have stayed at the Scanlon House almost annually for the past 15 years. The food, services, great historic setting, and of course most importantly, the great hosts keep bring back year. We'll certainly be back next year.

Perfect Getaway!!!

We LOVED it here!!! The house and rooms were beautiful. The staff was very courteous and friendly! And the food was AMAZING! I cannot recommend this place enough. It's a few blocks from 'downtown' Lanesboro, close enough to walk to town, but out of the way enough to be really quiet. The Root River biking trail is great and very accessible from the B & B/town.

Scanlan House Is a Gem, Vacation Highlight

The Scanlan House is a gem, and our two night stay there was a highlight of our vacation. Not only do the grounds provide a wonderful place to sit and read a book, but the interior is beautiful--meticulously restored to its Victorian glory, but with all the modern amenities one could wish for. Mary and Dave were great hosts, and the 3 course breakfasts they served were delicious. We only wish Lanesboro was closer to the Chicago area.
