Fall Couples Weekend

3,0 su ottobre 16, 2017

We had a fun weekend in Lanesboro with two other couples. We all stayed at the Scanlan house and enjoyed the area bike trails, Niagra Cave and visited a nearby winery. The Scanlan house was a nice place for our group to stay together at the same location. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was displayed nicely, taste was so so, portion size was small for the men and sadly, the coffee was terrible.

Lanesboro a wonderful surprise

4,0 su ottobre 11, 2017

Had never been to Lanesboro and staying at a B&B was the way to go! We enjoyed very much our stay at Historic Scanlan House. The only reason they didn't get perfect marks is because we had the exact same breakfast two mornings in a row which was disappointing and the staff seemed a little ready for season to be over, BUT, the friends we traveled with had been there 3 times and loved it and there was another couple who had stayed at Scanlan House 6 years in a row!

Great Bed and Breakfast

4,2 su ottobre 11, 2017

We had a great time staying at the Scanlan House. It was a very quiet and peaceful place to stay. Never heard any of the other guests at all in rooms just next to us. And the breakfast was just superb!!. Will stay there again. Jerry and Barb

The Scanlan House is a beautiful House that is decorated to the 10th Degree. The time you spend looking at the decorations is an event in itself. You will note the rubber ducky for your whirlpool tub, or the details on the breakfast table. AS an example the butter dishes are individual glass covered dishes. The food is outstanding and one breakfast will last you all day.

Romantic weekend

5 su settembre 19, 2017

This place is amazing! The owners are courtious and kind. The 3 course breakfasts were delicious ! The rooms are spectacular! I can't say enough about this place. We were treated like royalty from the moment we got there. It's close walking distance to downtown. Great value for money. We will definitely go back.

Great Experience

5 su settembre 05, 2017

The Steeple room was wonderful. Our stay was so relaxing and enjoyable. The staff made us feel like so at home. We will be coming again. Plan on a huge, delicious breakfast. We only needed one more meal later in the day.

Great getaway!

Our first time at a B&B. Loved it. Everything was perfect, including the weather! Quaint little town, very fun time!

Perfect Getaway

5 su settembre 04, 2017

This was our first overnight just the two of us since our son was born almost a year ago. What a much needed break, time to relax and focus on our marriage. The rooms were cozy and comfortable. The three course Breakfast she served in the morning was fantastic and she did a great job catering to my food allergy! The tea and hot chocolate bar was well stocked and evening had microwave popcorn to go with the movie we "rented" from her. Everything was clean and well kept. We would definitely return and suggest it to friends! Thank you!

Great weekend away

Stayed in the Safari room. Very nice room, very comfy We liked the private parking/entrance. All in all a romantic and relaxing stay.

Great Experience

5 su agosto 17, 2017

Arriving at the Scanlan house we were amazed by its exterior appearance and the yard with the abundant foliage and lawn. We further enjoyed the interior decoration and exhibits that seemed like a museum. Our room was great, the bed superb and the breakfast was best of all - food was excellent, and dining at the same table with the other visitors was most enjoyable. Kirstin and her mother were very enjoyable hostesses.

Scalan House, Lanesboro MN

Scanlon House - Lansboro,MN

The breakfast was wonderful and lovely presentation. We stayed in a Suite the first night and really enjoyed how spacious it was- the room for the second night was nice but much smaller . We will definitely return!

Lovely stay at Histotic Scanlan House

4,6 su agosto 01, 2017

Beautiful Victorian rooms plus sumptuous breakfast and friendly hosts


3,2 su luglio 29, 2017

This was a neat experience, a little pricey. The house is cute inside and out, especially the grounds. Staff was welcoming. When asked about breakfast restrictions, I mentioned one ingredient and was told that ingredient wasn't on the menu. When breakfast was served, I was somewhat annoyed to find said ingredient on my plate. Instead of complaining, I just didn't eat it. Then everyone overheard the cook venting rather loudly about the person who barely touched their plate. Could not wait to leave after that.

Fantastic stay at Scanlan House

5 su luglio 28, 2017

My wife I I had a wonderful 5 day stay at the Scanlan House. Mary made awesome breakfast each day, and continued to surprise us with new and tasty meals every time. The room was decorated very nicely,and the bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept in. We will be back for sure!

Birthday weekend in Lanesboro

Victorian Treasure

The decor at the Scanlan House is a Victoriana-delight. The grounds and flower gardens add a wonderful ambience to any summertime stay. Staff very friendly and accommodating.

Lovely B & B

4,4 su giugno 14, 2017

Hospitality and food were excellent

Our first B&B stay

3,8 su giugno 12, 2017

While the drive down from the Twin Cities was nice, we took backroads, The Scanlan House is something to behold. A beautiful old home with wonderful landscaping filled with period details and clean enough to roll on the floor.

Our recent visit to the Scanlon House

5 su giugno 04, 2017

My husband and I recently spent a night at the Scanlon House. This was the second time we have stayed here and like the first, everything was wonderful. Our room (Primrose) was very comfortable and nicely decorated. After having dinner at a local restaurant we came back to the Scanlon House to sip a glass of wine on the front porch on a beautiful almost summer night. The grounds are beautiful with a lovely variety of flowers. Breakfast the next morning was delicious! It was just enough to fill us up and be on our way for the day, but not too much! Mary is a very friendly hostess, taking time to chat with everyone who stays with her

Charming B&B

The bike riders

I loved the patio our room had so we could sit outside, and the jacuzzi!

Great food and room for the price

3,8 su aprile 26, 2017

Compared to other B and B's, this price is very reasonable for the quiet room and excellent breakfast provided. Also nice amenities, including free DVD's to watch, with free popcorn to take to room. Very private owners, who make themselves minimally visible; house is comfortable and free to roam is nice. There are free coffee/tea/hot chocolates always available, and other beverages for purchase (including some decent wines). We would definitely return here!

Comfy visit

4,6 su aprile 12, 2017

We stayed for an evening and it was very nice. We had the house to ourselves due to the time of year and that was very appealing to us. The house is very neatly decorated. The amenities are very comfortable. Thank you for the service!

A Dream

5 su dicembre 21, 2016

Our stay was so wonderful! We were expecting a romantic winter get away and that is what we had! So welcoming and we wanted for nothing. Just like visiting in someone's home. beverages of all types at your disposal. The charming and beautifully decorated home conveniently located to beautiful downtown Lanesboro with all the shops and places to eat could not of been more perfect . Our hostess Kristin, went to great lengths to make our stay perfect and it was.¿¿

Anniversary trip a couple of months late.

5 su dicembre 12, 2016

Scanlan House Bed and Breakfast was amazing. If you want to stay somewhere where you are treated as family and you want to relax, this is the place for you. Kirsten and her mom, Mary, are wonderful hosts. They help make reservations for tours and they make sure you have all you need. The breakfasts are AMAZING! They fill you up and are very tasty. I highly recommend Scanlan House. Try it, you will be planning your next trip right as you leave.

Review of Scanlan House

3,8 su dicembre 07, 2016

We truly enjoyed the wonderful Christmas decorations throughout the house. The breakfast was really tasty and the innkeepers were even willing to let us take a plate of food to our daughter who is in college nearby.

Superb Stay

5 su novembre 30, 2016

Could not have been better. Rooms are quaint and enjoyable, and the service is exceptional, from the morning meals to random requests. All-around a pleasant time. Recommended for anyone seeking a quiet and receptive home for the weekend.

Quaint little place

3,6 su novembre 21, 2016

We stayed at the Historic Scanlan House B&B for our 4th anniversary and babymoon. The innkeeper was away when we checked in on our first night. I had communicated about ordering a special package to surprise my husband but I didn't hear back and so it was never done. The innkeeper was happy to put together a last minute package when I had asked her about in the morning but it was too late since I wanted it for when we arrived. Other than the package information having a little miscommunication, our stay was perfect. The food was awesome and very filling. The innkeeper and her mom does a very nice job of accommodating guests with dietary needs. The place would be great for summer stay since they have a few patio sets that are spread throughout the property for morning sunrise or just sit and enjoy the outdoors.

November stay

3,6 su novembre 16, 2016

The hot tub was one of the reasons I choose this B&B. It was enjoyable. Good selection of DVDs to watch while soaking. Fragrance and bubbles provided--Lovely. The breakfast was delish and included fresh fruit, hot items and dessert. Good selection of teas,too. The best of hotel amenities and B&B combined. Quiet and relaxing.

Four fabulous days!

4,4 su novembre 06, 2016

We stayed 3 nights in a luxurious room. The staff was friendly and helpful with information for shopping and restraurants.The decor was beautiful and the rooms were quiet. The breakfast was yummy and elegant.

Nice place to relax and unwind

4,0 su ottobre 22, 2016

My wife and I happened to choose this B & B out of a long list of B & Bs. Longtime MN residents but never visited Lanesboro. Discovered very nice part of the state. Enjoyed our stay at Scanlan House. Old Victorian house very nicely decorated. Breakfasts were excellent and too much to eat.

Perfect get-a-way!

5 su ottobre 20, 2016

Wonderful experience from check-in to check-out. Such friendly hosts, lovely accomodations, and breakfast was out-of-this-world! Met such nice people and will definitely be returning...

Beautiful Historic Home

5 su ottobre 16, 2016

Our daughter gave us a gift certificate to a Bed and Breakfast. My husband recently retired so we decided to celebrate it at the beautiful Scanlon House in Lanesboro, Mn. It was the first time we ever stayed at a Bed and Breakfast and it was a wonderful experience. Our room was beautiful, the hosts couldn't have been nicer and the breakfast was scrumptious!

Absolutely delightful!

5 su ottobre 10, 2016

we stayed in the Safari room which was decorated so creatively. Everything was so clean and fresh. The grounds are gorgeous with many areas to sit outside and enjoy the fall day. The breakfast was so delicious and the host family was so delightful to chat with. Had a great stay. I will recommend this to family and friends.

First visit to Scanlan house

5 su ottobre 09, 2016

My husband and I recently spent 2 days at Scanlan house. It is a beautiful and comfortable B & B. The owners are extremely friendly and accommodating. The breakfasts were outstanding and plentiful! We tried not eating it all the second morning but everything was so delicious, we cleaned our plates yet again. We hope to visit Lanesboro again in the future and will only stay at Scanlan.

A wonderful stay

4,4 su ottobre 02, 2016

A wonderful place to get away for a few days. A real down home host.

Lanesboro Gem

5 su settembre 12, 2016

Beautiful B&B - we were in the Masquerade Room with its own private balcony in the turret at the front of the house. Great location - close to everything in town and last, but definitely not least, one of the best breakfasts we have ever had - a gourmet meal of fresh fruit, yogurt parfait, vegetable egg crustless quiche, homemade mozarella-stuffed sausage, pumpkin spice muffin and pound cake with sweetened mascarpone cheese!

it was outstanding as usual

5 su settembre 08, 2016

We have stayed here with another couple for at least 15 years. My favorite room is the one with the balcony. This year the weather was great, so we did lots of biking, outdoor dining and just strolling around town.

GIrls' weekend at the Scanlan House

4,6 su settembre 04, 2016

A lovely period house with comfortable, spacious rooms, and gracious and attentive hosts. The bathroom had an "enthusiastic" shower with excellent water pressure though the floor got a bit wet just from having the door open to turn on the water! Breakfast was started a bit later then other B&Bs we've stayed at (9pm) but this worked out well - we were able to forgo the alarm clocks and have a leisurely cup of coffee while waiting for the 3-course meal to commence - yogurt and fruit plate to start; a baked egg dish with vegetables, sausage and muffins on the side; and a small "sweet" plate to finish - ice cream one morning, and a yummy rhubarb crisp the other. The house is located on the "quiet"end of Parkway Ave., about 5-6 blocks from the center of town and the bike path, surrounded by beautifully kept grounds and plantings. There is a bike rack under a large port-cochere which kept our bikes out of direct rain. We even had the chance to watch one of the DVDs from the house collection on Saturday night! All together a great weekend.

One Night Bike Stay

4,8 su settembre 03, 2016

Accommodations were very nice It rained for a while the morning of our stay and it delayed our biking but it gave us more time to enjoy our breakfast and visit with the other guests without rushing.

Everything about the Scanlan house was great and we especially enjoyed the delicious breakfast. Kirsten was helpful in answering all of our questions. We will be back.

Pleasant summer experience

4,8 su giugno 20, 2016

Breakfast was made of fresh, nutritious, great tasting foods. The host was very pleasant as was the conversation around the breakfast table. I am not a big Victorian style person so maybe it wasn't fair to not give the room 5 stars. Would certainly stay here again.

Scanlon House B&B

5 su maggio 23, 2016

Our stay here was absolutely wonderful from start to finish. The room was interesting, comfortable, and had a delightful private balcony. The house was friendly, with parlors open to sit and visit, many outdoor places to wander through the garden areas and sit outside. The food was excellent, with the service done with care and expertise. I would go back again anytime!

Historic Loveliness. Delicious, authentic breakfast!

We could not have been more pleased with our overnight stay at Historic Scanlan B & B in Lanesboro, MN. Authentic Victorian decor, just cluttered enough to be comfortably welcoming. Enjoyed every amenity offered. Wonderful 2 person Bubble Tub. Breakfast was served hot and delicious with table decked out in finest Victorian array. We will return!

The Scanlan House Experience

Great experience and value

5 su aprile 06, 2016

We fell very welcome and enjoyed the safari suite and particularly the jacuzzi tub.

Definitely recommend!

4,8 su dicembre 28, 2015

We loved our stay at the Scanlan house! The breakfast was delicious (and accommodating to our dietary needs), the two-person whirlpool was so relaxing, and while in our room we couldn't even hear the other guests. Our room - Grandma Bells - was a bit smaller than we had been anticipating, but we will definitely be back. They had lots of recommendations of things to do in town/nearby (even in winter), a large DVD collection that you could borrow from, and our hosts were super friendly. Stay here if you can!

Wonderful Get-Away Week-End

A beautiful old house, excellent breakfast.

nice getaway

4,6 su dicembre 20, 2015

This b&b was very charming- room was very clean and included everything we needed. The owner was very friendly and treated us like family. Lanesboro is a lovely little town, and this was a great place to stay!

Great time at a great place

We had a wonderful time. Our hostess Kirsten was very friendly and helpful. We were in the Masquerade room and enjoyed the huge whirlpool and the nice balcony. The breakfast was amazing! Thank you for giving us such a nice stay!

Scanlon House, 10-10-15

4,4 su ottobre 19, 2015

We spent our 35th anniversary celebration at the Scanlon House in Lanesboro, MN. It was a beautiful B&B and we had the Sunrise Suite. The grounds were fantastic and we played cribbage outside on one of the patio tables. The flowers and foliage were unparalleled and well maintained. The room was fantastic with plenty of space, great furniture and classic decorations. The Sunday breakfast was very good and offered a variety of scrumptious selections. The only addition I would recommend would be to have the hostess go to the dining tables and give a short history of the house and its previous inhabitants. It would seem more life-like and give all the guests a reason to tell others about it.

Wedding Night Stay

5 su settembre 30, 2015

The Safari Suite was the PERFECT room for us to stay in on our wedding night!!! This Bed and Breakfast has to be one of the best ones in town. Super clean! Extremely friendly! AMAZING three course breakfast!! We couldn't have asked for anything better!!

Historic B&B nestled in a sleepy little river valley town in SE MN

4,4 su agosto 05, 2015

Beautiful summertime destination on the Root River bike trail and scenic canoeing river. Lanesboro has preserved the old town charm but still has a lot to offer like top quality theater and a incredible art gallery. The Scanlan House retains its original charm and has some added amenities like whirlpool tubs and a new, cable TV system in the rooms. The grounds are well kept with lots of flowers and private areas to sit outside and talk. Both the food and the service are excellent here. It's a real hidden gem in the midst of summer, the best time to enjoy all that this area has to offer.

We love Scanlan!

4,8 su giugno 18, 2015

Kirsten and Mary are just splendid! They are great hosts, providing everything you could possibly need and then some. We loved the Masquerade Room with its charming turret balcony. Breakfasts were the best we've ever had at over 100 B&B's we have stayed at nationwide. The lawn and gardens are meticulously kept & SO beautiful this time of year! This is a great home base for biking the Root River Trail. We'll be back!

This was amazing!

5 su giugno 10, 2015

We had never stayed in a B & B before, and Scanlan House really set the bar high! The room was lovely and comfortable, the breakfast was amazing, and the staff and atmosphere of the whole house was welcoming. We will definately book another stay at Scanlan House. Thank you to Kirstin and David for making our 25th anniversary so special.

first time at a B & B

5 su giugno 03, 2015

We received a gift certificate from my fiancé dad for xmas. we decided to use it for our 5th yrs. anniversary. We arrived early and stopped in to let them now we where in town and the owner was very happy to show us around and go over things. We left to go check out the town and arrived back at check in time. The room was amazing, and they had our extra's pack in our room for us. It was a beautiful bouquet of roses, champagne, assorted fresh fruit and chocolates. The private balcony was wonderful. The next day we went down to eat our breakfast. Wonderful to seat and talk with others who where staying there as well. Now the Breakfast was 5 star good. Fresh fruit, yogurt parfait, a wonderful egg soufflé homemade sausage and muffins and then dessert of homemade apple dumplings with ice cream. all the food came out at different times so it was a 3 course breakfast. Amazing!!!!! we had never stayed at a B & B but we will be doing it more. I highly recommend it.

This is a great place!!!

5 su maggio 26, 2015

The facilities are amazing and the food is incredible! Kirsten and Mary are great hosts and neat people. We have been going to the Scanlon House for 16 years and love it!

First anniversary

5 su maggio 14, 2015

My husband and I stayed at the scanlan house last year on our wedding night, we knew after that we would be back every year on our anniversary. It's so charming, clean, quiet and romantic. I have no bad words to say about this place. I'm already excited for next year!

Exceptional Accommodations, Service and Breakfast

5 su maggio 06, 2015

Impressive, from beginning to end. Kirsten, the owner, provided a free upgrade from a room to a suite on the top floor when I checked in. The suite was spacious and tastefully appointed, from the furniture to the decorations and beyond. Breakfast was delightful, which included a Mexican omelet, fresh fruit, and muffin. I plan on visiting the Scanlan again soon!

Love this place

3,8 su maggio 04, 2015

I had the pleasure of staying at the quaint place. Very nice people and the breakfast is worth the total price! Awesome gourmet breakfast. I highly recommend a stay there and make sure to rent a bike of 2 to hit the trails and enjoy shopping! I am going back for sure!

Anniversary getaway

4,8 su dicembre 15, 2014

The Historic Scanlan B&B was a delight. The Christmas decorations were beautiful throughout the house. I stayed in the Sunset Suite and it was beautiful. Mary, the owner was a wonderful hostess and available to answer any questions. She provided great conversation on the history of Lanesboro and the B&B itself. The breakfast was absolutely delicious! My husband and I had discovered the town while on a bike ride a few years ago and had always wanted to come back down to do some exploring of the city. So glad it worked out!

Amazing service and quality

4,0 su dicembre 10, 2014

I have been to Lanesboro many times but this is my first B&B stay. The pricing was very on par for all the B&B's, we stayed in the Safari Room which is the biggest. We stayed in December, so it was alot more quiet in town....which wasn't such a bad thing. Kirsten was a delight. She has owned this for 20 years- she does all the cooking and I even saw her cleaning. She makes you feel at home and is always available. The breakfast in the morning was ready at 9 and was literally 4 courses of home made awesomeness. I think there is a max of 4-5 rooms, you eat in a common room (elegantly done) with your fellow B&Bers, which was also fun. One note- for some reason I was not able to select 5 stars using Firefox, otherwise I would give them 5 stars all around. The decorations in the parlor and library draws your eye everywhere and there is lots of it! I would definitely go back to this place, the service rooms an overall vibe were well worth it....and it was still within easy walking distance of the main "drag".

Very nice owner Mary! Wonderful breakfast. We felt welcomed and very comfortable during our stay. We also went to the theater that is right in town. Stepping out of the box and enjoyed it

More than we had imagined

5 su novembre 19, 2014

Firstly, our host Kirsten was incredible. Very accommodating, helpful, and can put out an amazing breakfast !! I've stayed in hundreds of hotels and some B&B's. This was so comfortable and relaxing. Felt like staying at Grandma's house. Didn't want to get out of the whirlpool tub either. Thanks for a great stay Kirsten!

Just the retreat I was looking for!

4,0 su novembre 16, 2014

A truly lovely property with a welcoming atmosphere! I spent 3 days at the Historic Scanlan House -- and I was truly delighted. I appreciated the warmth of the owners, the beauty of the room, the attention to detail, and the outstanding breakfast (I tried to give 5 stars to dining, but the survey tool for some reason wouldn't let me). I would love to stay here again.

Great retreat after long bike ride

Accommodations were great! Breakfast was delicious, Kirsten and David were joys to talk to. I will be back next year.

great place to stay!

5 su ottobre 10, 2014

We were warmly welcomed by the staff when we first arrived and shown to our cute room(Grandma Bell's room). They were able to accommodate my nutritional needs without compromising the delicious breakfasts they make! Go to breakfast hungry or bring your own doggy bag because the breakfast is huge! The other guests were great and easy to talk to as well. We will be planning our next stay at the Scanlan house real soon!

Late Summer

Beautiful grounds, very very quiet.

First B&B stay ever

5 su ottobre 08, 2014

I picked this B&B because it looked like a castle and thought it was the best one in town. I was right! Loved everything it was a great decision to celebrate our anniversary! I loved the gardens if I stayed longer I would sit and enjoy the chilly weather. :)

A great start to a weeklong Wedding Anniversary Surprise

5 su ottobre 06, 2014

My wife and I just celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary and had the pleasure of staying 2 nights at the Historic Scanlan House in the Safari Suite. Everything was perfect. The flowers and champagne I ordered for my wife were amazing. The room was spacious, clean and well decorated. The gourmet breakfast was also a treat. Our host went way out of her way to take care of all of the details. I highly recommend this property for a romantic Victorian getaway We’ll definitely be staying there again. Andrea and Dan

Wonderful Hostess. Great experience

Would stay at Scanlan House again.

4,4 su settembre 26, 2014

We stayed two nights in late Sept. Lanesboro is charming and Scanlan house is beautiful and host family very welcoming. The amazing 3 course breakfast lasted us well into the afternoon. Our room had a large jacuzzi but no shower. The queen size bed was very comfortable. Room felt a bit small but the lovely balcony more than made up for it. Overall a good value and would stay there again.


4,2 su settembre 25, 2014

First time at a bed and breakfast. Enjoyed it very much!

Best of the Best

4,8 su settembre 24, 2014

The house is awesome - from the woodwork to the decor to the flower gardens that surround it. Exactly how a B&B should look. The room was exquisite! Roomy and functional. The bed was great as well. But... It's the breakfast that made our trip. To simply sit down and have several courses served while chatting with the other guests - that made the stay at Scanlon the best we've ever had. If you're going to Lanesboro - I'd highly recommend staying here. We stayed one night but wished we stayed two. Next time we will.

Scanlan House - Lanesboro

4,2 su settembre 17, 2014

This is a well kept historic home with orginal woodwork, period furnishings, and many little extras in terms of amenities. The hosts were very gracious and engaging and the breakfast was incredible. We also didn't realize how beautiful this area of Minnesota was - well worth a visit. We will be back for sure.

Exceeded our expectations

5 su settembre 09, 2014

We stayed one night in the Steeple Suite and our friends were next door in the Sunrise Suite. It was perfect. The bed was gloriously comfortable, the shower nice and hot, ample and complete amenities. They even have a refrigerated cooler outside our suites stocked with beverages. There is a butler pantry near the kitchen that is available to guests 24 hours a day with hot beverages, ice and little candies. The decor is true to the era of the home with beautiful stained glass, lovely furnishings and woodwork. It is very clean and well kept. The landscaping and gardens are extraordinary, there was even a visiting garden society visiting the day we checked out. Breakfast is a gourmet, three course, thoughtfully prepared and presented feast. Yum! We enjoyed conversing the Kiersten, her mom Mary, and her brother David. It is obvious that they take great pride in everything they do! Thank you for making our time with you so special and personal!

The Scanlan House

4,2 su settembre 09, 2014

The yard is beautiful and has many areas that one can just sit, relax, and enjoy. The butlers pantry with all the teas and hot choc, and pop corn is a nice touch. The breakfasts are great. We had a lovely time.

Weekday getaway

4,4 su settembre 05, 2014

Very nice room. Good value for the price. Comfortable bed. Need to type out instructions for using sat. tv. Instructions were scribbled on little post-it note and I had to figure out how to use tv myself.

Risposta del proprietario
Typing up the instructions for use of CD player is an easy request. :) We will happily do so. Thanks for bringing it to our attention. We appreciate that very much.

3,6 su luglio 28, 2014

Delightful one night stay at Scanlan's! We were in Lanesboro to see a friend in Arsenic and Old Lace at the Commonweal Theatre, and just loved our stay at Scanlan's! A delicious, lively breakfast with much conversation and laughter rounded out our stay.


5 su luglio 28, 2014

This is our second time staying at the Scanlan House. For the life of me, in nine years I don't know why it's only been two. This was an amazing stay with my lovely wife. The place is gorgeous, peaceful, the staff is so kind and accommodating, the town is wonderful. I will make sure we don't take nine years before our next visit!


5 su luglio 24, 2014

This was our first stay at a bed and breakfast and it was an amazing experience. Beautiful home with amazing food and great people. All the rooms were beautiful. The town is fun and beautiful. We would definitely come back and would recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone.

Awesome Stay

First Time B&B'er, Hard to Beat!

5 su luglio 23, 2014

Nothing but good things to say about our stay here. I had no idea what to expect being a first time B&B'er, but the whole experience was a great one. The hosts were warm and welcoming. They were happy to answer any questions about activities, history, etc. The breakfast was fabulous and the people who stayed there all thought so, as well. One of the couples were visiting the Scanlan House for their second time. We I stayed here mid-July, so it was very hot outside, but the Scanlan House was kept nice and cool! We will definitely recommend.

Superb B & B

5 su luglio 20, 2014

My daughter and I had a lovely stay at the Scanlon House over the 4th of July weekend. We loved the balcony of the Masquerade Room. The breakfast was excellent and the company warn.

Enjoyed our stay - Scanlan is very good choice!

4,8 su luglio 16, 2014

Scanlan Bed & Breakfast website shows excellent video invitation, and we were very happy with the beautiful room and breakfast food and visiting the next morning. We brought a bottle of wine and enjoyed in the beautiful garden when we arrived. Lanesboro set up well for weekend getaway, good local restaurants and excellent evening theater and nightclubs. Highly recommend Scanlan - plan to come here again!

Experience was fantastic.

Amazing Get Away!

5 su luglio 04, 2014

What a fabulous place to stay. The breakfasts were amazing, the host, Mary was very fun to visit with and the room comfortable and quiet. Would highly recommend this venue to anyone considering taking in the Root River area or looking for a couple of night get away!

It doesn't get any better than this bed and breakfast!

5 su luglio 02, 2014

Rooms were great and the service was outstanding. Hostess went out of her way to make you feel welcome and personalize the service. Even made homemade popcorn for us to enjoy when we watched our choice of movies from over 400 dvd's. Kept constant watch on the severe weather that was in the area for the nights we were there. Cooking was utterly fantastic and delicious.

Weekend Stay for a Younger Couple

5 su giugno 18, 2014

My girlfriend and I had a great visit to the Historic Scanlan House. I've stayed at other B & B's and this place blew them out of the water. We stayed on the first floor but still had plenty of privacy. Breakfast was great, a HUGE dvd library was available for check-out in the evening, and the number of beverages (tea, cider, coffee etc.) available to folks at their leisure was amazing. The location in Lanesboro is great. Although it's not a large town by any stretch of the imagination, this B & B is located just on the outskirts - so theres no potential to hear crossing traffic. The grounds and rooms were maintained in a way that someone who takes great pride in the place would keep them. I'll be moving soon apart from my girlfriend, and we've already made plans to meet half-way at the Scanlan House this Fall.

Bicycling get away

4,6 su giugno 09, 2014

We booked the B & B after reviewing other overnight accomodations. We were not disappointed. The B & B is convenientely located within the community. Our room was exceptional, as was the morning breakfast. We enjoyed the fellowship of the owner, and the other guests during our stay. I would also recommend if possible that you go to Lanesboro during the week if you wan to avoid the weekend crowds. There are many places to stay in Lanesboro. If you are looking for something special, consider the Historic Scanlan House. We definately plan to return. Mike and Dawn

Back again

5 su maggio 29, 2014

I've stayed at the Scanlan House several times and I come back for the king sized bed in the Steeple Room--something few B&B's offer--and, especially, for the luxurious breakfast which accommodates my dietary limitations beautifully.

Fell in love with this place!

5 su maggio 26, 2014

My husband and I came here to celebrate our 36th anniversary. The home was beautiful, the grounds enticed us to go outside and sit under a tree in one of the many sitting areas to choose from. We had our own bathroom and 2-person Jacuzzi. You could not hear anyone else in the house....we slept great! The icing on the cake was the scrumptious breakfast where we met the other houseguests. The couple sitting next to us were there on their 10th visit and the couple across from us were there for their 8th visit. When we were talking about how delicious the breakfast was they both said they never had the same breakfast in all their visits. The family that owned and operated the Bed and Breakfast were very kind and helpful and went out of their way to make any accomodations needed. We would recommend Scanlan House to everyone!

Weekend away

4,8 su maggio 21, 2014

Beautiful room, quiet, well decorated. Breakfast was very good and service friendly. Totally felt like home away from home. Would recommend the Scanlan House to anyone looking for a relaxing stay in Lanesboro.

Scanlan May 2014 Stay

4,4 su maggio 19, 2014

Our stay at Scanlan House in May 2014 did exceed my expectations! A very welcoming environment. It was like I came to visit family! Warm and inviting owners! We had awesome breakfasts! Our room had everything we needed and more. Kudos to the owners of the Historic Scanlan House!

Couldn't ask for more

4,8 su maggio 15, 2014

Everything was exceptional! From the moment we walked in and were greeted to the time we expressed our thanks and said our goodbyes. The Inn has been renovated over the years with great attention given to the details. The room was fantastic (the only thing missing was the air conditioner control: but it wasn't uncomfortable enough for us to inquire about it). The breakfast was also outstanding. I enjoy cooking almost as much as I enjoy eating, so I can appreciate a gourmet breakfast. Our host, Kirsten, was friendly and tried to see to our every need, even with a houseful of guests. A truly great experience.

What a place!

5 su maggio 08, 2014

The trip and house was outstanding! Very accommodating and good understanding of the surrounding area for all different types of people and interests.

It was a wonderful anniversary celebration! The room was great and the breakfast meals were fantastically prepared!!

Beyond expectations

4,8 su aprile 16, 2014

From checkin to checkout, everything about our stay was above the norm. We stayed in the Safari Suite, so having the reserved parking spot and outside entrance was nice. Our only regret is that when we checked in on Thursday, there was no one else there, so we could have viewed all the other rooms, but we chose to unpack instead. The breakfasts, and especially the muffins and desserts(?) were exceptional.

Great experience. Very gracious & nice hosts. Loved the amazing Barbie doll collection in the house and the antique decor.

our 1st b&b will not be our last

5 su novembre 13, 2013

We could not have asked for a more lovely stay. We were both hesitant about the idea of a bed and breakfast. The room was clean and romantic. The food was great! Our only regret was... We only booked for one night. Next time it will be a whole weekend stay for sure!

Enjoyable Stya

4,0 su novembre 04, 2013

We arrived early (2:00 PM) on a Saturday afternoon, but the room was ready and well appointed. Everything was spotlessly clean.The breakfast was very tasty, but I am used to a heartier breakfast, so I was left wanting more food.

Great place to stay

5 su ottobre 28, 2013

The Sunshine Suite was more than we expected, and I would recommend it. Everything about our stay was great. I am sure we will go back. The Brekfast was more than enough, and meeting new people was pleasant.

Mary is a delight! We enjoyed our visit and the breakfast was superb!

Short Stay ad the Scanlan House

4,0 su ottobre 23, 2013

Pleasant hostess, nice (but small) room, lovely breakfast and lots of little extras like an open snack area and movies. The home has a lot of character. Located close to shops, restaurants and bike trails. The only minor issue we had was trying to figure out how the TV/DVD worked, even with written instructions. We would visit the B&B again and recommend it to others.

Cute and Quaint

3,4 su ottobre 23, 2013

The Primrose room was quaint. My only complaint is that the fake fireplace is very loud and so we didn't use it. The food and service was great. The little kitchenette with teas, coffees and treats was great too. The ONLY thing I didn't like was sharing a table with 3 other couples for breakfast. I don't like small talk and I just wanted to spend time with my boyfriend. It was a bit uncomfortable. Separate little tables would of been nice or the option to eat in our room. Food was great though, but three courses made the breakfast long which if we had our own table, I wouldn't of minded.

Quiet, peaceful, beautiful old Victorian home.

4,4 su ottobre 22, 2013

Great escape, with fantastic breakfast!

Scanlan House is a beautiful, historic home. The owners have kept the decor true to the era of the home. Some of the elaborate decorations were dusty, and so it made me worry about the condition of the other parts of my room. However, the staff was very friendly and the food was fantastic! Leave plenty of room for the multi-course, delicious breakfast! I would return to Scanlan House!

My girlfriend (21yrs old) and I (22yrs old) stayed in the Grandma Bell's room. I have never been to a bed and breakfast before this one, but I was extremely impressed. The room was gorgeous, it was the perfect example of elegance and class. The whole theme of the house and rooms really fit the original house. I have never been t.o a bed and breakfast before this one, but I was extremely impressed. The quality of service was just phenomenal. The breakfast was amazing, and filling :). You have access to all the things you need in the Butler's Kitchen(I think this name is right). You just need to see it to truly understand how great it is. I recommend this to anybody of ANY age.

Very pleased and had a good time in Lanesboro

Went to Harmony first to Amish and then to Lanesboro as husband, son-in-law and grandson had gone on a tractor ride through there and thought it was so pretty so he wanted to bring me there to see where they went and then went on to Lake City to get wood for a mantel for our fireplace. Had a good time.

B & B virgin no more!

Biking Get Away

4,6 su settembre 30, 2013

This was our first time to Lanesboro and the Root River Bike Trail and Scanlan House. We will definitely go back and stay here again and bike the trail again. The trails are awesome, the whirlpool felt great after a 40 mile ride. We were in the Masquerade Room, the balcony is awesome, had a bottle of wine after a long day of biking. The Scanlan House is wonderful, Kristin and Mary are the best hosts and breakfasts were amazing both days. They were even so generous to give me a memory card when mine was full, very much appreciated. We ate one night at Pedal Pushers, great food and atmosphere. The use of local foods there is amazing. All in all you have a hidden gem in the area and we can't wait to come back again. Keep up the great work.

Cute B&B

3,8 su settembre 28, 2013

I stayed here for a conference, wasn't able to eat the breakfast unfortunately but I really enjoyed my stay. They inn keepers were great and I loved my room; grandma belle's. It was soo cozy and cute. There was tea and coffee you could help yourself to and they sold wine and beer which was nice. Looking forward to staying genre again!


3,8 su settembre 28, 2013

Hostess Kirsten was great: left clear instructions for our check-in, key in the door, and chocolates on our pillows. Our room, the Masquerade, had a marvelous sheltered deck for relaxing and soaking in the ambiance of this beautiful little town, not to mention the lovely gardens beneath the balcony. Plenty of seating space in the wonderfully appointed Victorian house. Original stained glass windows invite one's soul into the 19th Century. And the breakfast, complete with dessert, was to die for. We would certainly rent a room in this B&B again if we're in Lanesboro another time, and we intend to be. Enjoy, if you're fortunate enough to stay here.

Perfect fall adventure

5 su settembre 27, 2013

The weather was perfect for our mini adventure. While my husband biked from Houston to Lanesboro, I enjoyed exploring each of the towns along the route. After checking in to our B&B we walked down to the Riverside on the Root for dinner on their balcony. A wonderful four course breakfast in the morning. Thanks to The Scanlan House for a great stay!!

Great stay...

Thank you for the message. If you by chance read this could you give us a call and let us know which room you were in so we may look into the issue. All of our beds are only one year old. Very important that we know this so we are still able to return and/or take advantage of warranty. Thanks again! :)

Another Scanlan House Visit

5 su agosto 28, 2013

Scanlan House is our favorite B & B. We especially like the breakfasts, which are unique, delicious, and expertly presented--the highest level of morning dinning on the planet. The house offers the highest comfort with museum quality furnishings and decorations, and plenty to do on a rainy day. The proprietors are friendly and always make our annual stay at Scanlan House special.

Quite spectacular

4,8 su agosto 28, 2013

Safari Suite was ideal. Loved the private entrance and the fact that the breakfast was delivered to our room. I could go on and on. Let's just say I found nothing to complain about and I have been told I am somewhat picky.

Not a bad room in the place

4,6 su agosto 28, 2013

This was our second stay and because we reserved late the only room left was the one downstairs behind the stairs (Victorian). This was the room we had thought we would never want due to the locale, but we found it very delightful. There is no shower, but the bathtub is "roomy". Mary and daughters are very friendly and will help you in any way possible. The bike rental is the best with good prices and great bikes. We'll be back for sure!

Historic Scanlan House Weekend-Absolutely Wonderful!

5 su agosto 24, 2013

10+ stays at the Historic Scanlan House, and absolute wonderful time-Every Time! Right next to the golf course which we love, walking distance of the downtown activities, shops, and resteraunts. Also in walking distance of the trail / river activities such as biking, tubing, and kayaking (all available by rental if you do not have your own). The Root River Trail is great with various towns spattered along the way-great pie shop right next to the trail too! Absolutely recommend the entire experience, that's why we keep coming back-its a great get-away.

Our room was beautiful and very spacious. Breakfast in the morning ended up being and hour and a half of great conversation with the other guests over a meal that was exceptional. If we go back to Lanesboro, the Scanlon House is definitely where we would stay again.

Birthday B&B

We stayed at the Historic Scanlan House to celebrate my 28th bday. It was both my boyfriend and my first time staying at a B&B. We stayed in the Safari Suite, awesome room! Decor was so fun, bed was amazing and the whirlpool tub was perfect. :) The room has a private porch too. It was quiet, relaxing and pampering. Breakfast in the morning was absolutely delicious! 3 course breakfast with plenty of hot coffee and tea to go around. I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone, we look forward to coming back again soon!

Wonderful Stay

4,6 su agosto 12, 2013

This was our second visit. Great environment. Great food and in a wonderful location for biking. Only problem is that not all rooms have showers, just check that out prior to making your reservation. Highly recommend the B & B.

The finer details

5 su agosto 10, 2013

The Scanlon B&B was fantastic. From the beautiful landscaping to the chocolates on the pillows, we felt like they truly enjoyed owning a B&B, and that they liked their guests. The breakfast was wonderful and the bread pudding we were served is actually a family recipe. We will be back!

Our perfect quick getaway

4,6 su agosto 07, 2013

We checked the websites of B&B's all over Lanesboro, looking for one that would accept us for a single-night stay, as many of them would not. As luck would have it, Scanlan House was able to accommodate our busy schedule. The staff offers great, friendly customer service. We stayed in Grandmabelle's (sp?) room, which featured a whirlpool tub and a TV with DVD player. I've never seen a TV in a B&B before, but after a 41-mile bike ride that afternoon, it felt terrific to soak our bones in the tub while taking in one of the several-hundred movies Scanlan keeps on hand for guests. Breakfast was fantastic and full-featured. The only caveat I can think of is that it included a very rich minty dessert, which doesn't really fit with my breakfast palate. The staff was gracious enough to let us leave our bikes locked up at Scanlan after we checked out, so we wouldn't have to move them before our kayaking trip the following day. Although I want to see more of what Lanesboro has to offer (this being my first visit), I would readily recommend Scanlan House. We'll be back in the future!

This was our first time at the Scanlon House. Once we stepped inside, we were impressed by the decor and friendliness of the staff. Our room was great and we enjoyed the hot tub after a long day of biking. It was great that bikes are available there to rent, so we could take off and return from the place. We took advantage of the sitting areas outside, and it was nice to have the space there to visit. Breakfast was great - nice option to eat with others or have a more secluded table that we enjoyed with another couople we traveled with. Overall - we'll be back for sure an highly recommend this place to others.

Victorian B&B

The hosts were wonderful. We felt the rooms were over decorated. They did not have much space to set your personal items and no where in the bathroom to set your bathroom bag. The food was not up to my expectations especially on a weekend.

Idyllic, tranquil, welcoming, delicious

Our stay at the Scanlan House B&B was all of those. It was peaceful and just the retreat we needed. Having dessert with breakfast was marvelous. All aspects of the service was spectacular. We will definitely go again.

Amazing breakfast

4,8 su luglio 11, 2013

This home is gorgeous. Comfortable, beautiful, quiet rooms and an amazing breakfast in the morning. We had never stayed at a B & B before and weren't sure what to expect, but this home was wonderful. The hosts were warm, welcoming and had a lot of knowledge of the home's history. They were also great chefs and produced one of the best breakfasts I have ever enjoyed--gourmet and homemade.

We came in late around 8 pm. There was a note on the door for us explaining where our key etc was. The rooms have everything, tv, music, movies in the other room to choose from. You have access to a mini kitchen with teas, coffee, cocoa, and more beverages in the frig like wine and beer. We had a nice time playing cards outside sitting in the comfy lawn chairs and enjoying the view of the flowers in the yard. The room is so cutely decorated and relaxing is easy!

3,8 su giugno 09, 2013

We regularly try Bed & Breakfasts so to say the room met our expectations is not a bad thing! We have stayed in 'roomier' places but it was very nice. We normally prefer having a shower in attached bathroom but it was very handy having it two steps across into the hall, so no problem. The jacuzzi was very nice given the weekend was not very warm. The breakfasts were fabulous! Great food, interesting recipes which we always enjoy. We ate with some folks we had so much in common with it was freakish! So it was very enjoyable! Would recommend it to friends.

Gorgeous little spot

4,4 su giugno 08, 2013

Our room, the Masquerade Room, had a wonderful round balcony under a turret in this Victorian mansion, which we enjoyed with a bottle of wine under a blanket on a cool night. The stillness of Lanesboro and the breezy sweep of the nearby trees at night were memorably cathartic—one of those moments when you can literally feel stress exiting your body. I enjoyed the Scanlan House. My one suggestion to the owners would be to consider removing the doll collection in the living room—it's a bit too personal of taste and doesn't match the rest of the room's more historic decor.


5 su giugno 03, 2013

This was our second stay at the Historic Scanlan House and enjoyed it just as much as the first time. The breakfast was delightful and full of wonderful surprises. It is a wonderful place to relax and highly recommended.

One of the Best

This was our first stay at this beautiful bed and breakfast. The rooms were clean, beautifully decorated and quiet. The inn keeper was very accommodating and friendly. The breakfast each morning was exceptional and delicious. We enjoyed visiting with other guests at breakfast and met some really nice and interesting people. We will definitely be returning and recommending this place to our friends.

Wonderful Place to Stay

We stayed in "Grandma Belle's Room". Very cozy, very much a romantic place to stay. Breakfast in the morning was very unexpected - delicious, definitely more than one person could eat. Very relaxing - great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday and we had a fantastic time. I had pre-ordered champagne, fruit and flowers for our room and they were there waiting for us when we arrived. The room was very cozy and we really enjoyed the jacuzzi. The breakfast was outstanding - we enjoyed every bite! We could not have asked for a more perfect getaway.

Historic Scanlan House

2,4 su maggio 01, 2013

We stayed in the Safari Room; room was very nice, but there was another room above us that got very loud when the people used the jacuzzi. It happened to be later in the evening when we were trying to go to sleep, and was very annoying. Also, the outside of the property & grounds very much needed upkeeping. We stayed the end of April and Christmas decorations were still up throughout the B&B; we thought it should have been turned over to spring & summer decor. Not sure that I would stay here again.

Risposta del proprietario
Happy you liked The Safari Suite. It's been our most requested room for 13 years! Regarding the grounds. I don't understand the complaint. It was a long snowy winter with the months of April (when you stayed) and May producing high winds, heavy snowfall, hail, oodles of rain and freezing rain in The Bluff Country area. Starting to prepare the grounds for planting, painting etc... was next to impossible. Even the farmers were unable to get into their fields on time. The entire city of Lanesboro has been busy for the past two weeks (including ourselves) taking advantage of the finally warm weather and preparing for season. So... Yes! Like every house that goes through a winter season... the house and grounds needed sprucing up in April as they do every year. This is sad but true, and here is the bad excuse. Christmas decorations were up (only in the two dining rooms) in April and most of May. Mary does all of the season changes in the dining rooms and through-out the house. She is returning later than normal to Lanesboro due to our wonderful weather. I have no talent for the decor on the dining room tables. :( So yes they stayed X-Mas. Made sense though since last week we had 12 inches of snow on the ground and it looked like Christmas! LOL! Bad excuse, I know, and Mary has her work cut out for her upon her return. But she is good at what she does and she will be thankful (as should the guests) that I didn't attempt something stupid! :) We are always pleased to get feedback, whether it is positive or negative. After 26 years in business we still know that our guests come first and making our Bed and Breakfast comfortable and beautiful has always been top priority. Without your feedback this would not be possible. However... If you are not returning because Spring cleanup had not comenced and you saw Christmas decorations; that would be a rough misinterprataion of our property and all it has to offer.

Nestled in Bluff Country in Scenic Lanesboro, the Scanlan Bed and Breakfast is the best the Bed and Breakfast captial of MN has to offer. Easy to get to. Lovely rooms. Lots of space to spread out and be social. The hosts are always available and eager to make your stay relaxing. Beautiful area for a drive. Lovely place for a long walk. Fun places to eat. The other guest are just as friendly as the staff. Victorian charm with all the modern conveniences.

Perfectly Accommodating

5 su febbraio 19, 2013

We arrived late--they left the lights on and the door open. We left a ring--which they helped us find. The room was fun and comfortable, and breakfast delicious (we enjoyed it over a 3-hour conversation with the other couple who stayed that night). Overall, a great experience. The town is adorable, but if you go in the middle of winter, chances are most the shops will be closed.

Lovely Anniversary

If you like QuIet getaways in winter, Lanesboro is the place to go The Art Center is open, one or two stores, the corner cafe for lunch and the pizza shop for supper. If you want a big dinner, it's 7 miles to Preston. The gal at the Art Center said Looks like you're the only folks intown today'" and I think she was right. A lovely stay.....

This was our 1st time at the Scanlan House. We were celebrating our 35th Anniversary. It was a wonderful, relaxing stay. Our Host was so kind and helpful with telling us about the house, the town and what to do and see. The breakfast was outstanding. We had heard a lot about the incredible breakfast that is served each and every morning. We are now hooked with this place. We have already booked for next year. Had just a Wonderful Time. Just a beautiful House. Very warm and welcoming.We highly recommend! Ernest & Catherine

We loved the ladies who run the bed and breakfast. The breakfasts were delicious! Fresh fruit for the first course, a quiche for the second course and then yummy dessert for our last course. I love the butler's pantry which had coffee, hot chocolate (different varieties) and tea. We had a great stay and definitely would go back again.

Truely Victorian

The Scanlon house was VERY Victorian---fine for me---over the top for my husband. But we thoroughly enjoyed the quietness and the food was fabulous. Great converwsation at the breakfast table with a mix of ages, backgounds and experiences with B & B's. I was a bit concerned that there was no fire system in such an old structure and that there were several candles (enclosed) in a room with so much fabric as is Victorian style. The fire extinguisher provided woulddn't have gone far! We did not use the candles of course! We had a lovely weekend weatherwise and enjoyed the surrounding area & the theatre in the evening. Would reccommend the Scanlon House, especially for a ladies outing,

Risposta del proprietario
I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your time with us here at The Historic Scanlan House Bed and Breakfast Inn and Lanesboro! Glad that you enjoyed the Vicotorian atmostphere, but was sorry to hear that your husband did not enjoy it as much. Victorian decor however was our goal in this 1889 Queen Anne Victorian Home. With any luck he enjoyed the modern amenities of the TV/DVD/CD/Radio or Whirlpool and/or fireplace instead. Which is not a bad thing. :) Regarding fire safety system: We are actually one of 11 Bed and Breakfasts in the State of Minnesota that are completely fire inspected by State Officials annually. We have a fully operating fire alarm system with pull stations and emergency exit lights, electric and battery operated fire dectectors, fire extinguishers on each floor and in each room. We provide one self contained jar candle in each room and in a three rooms there are candle fixtures that hold three to four tea lights on the ledge of the whirlpool tub (Not next to any fabric). Any other candles that you see sitting around are actually the battery operated or electric candles. They do look very realistic and are easy to mistake for real candles. Especially since they are on timers and have a flicker flame. That however is what we love about them. The safety of our guests is of course our concern and we adress it thouroughly. Since I also live on the premise... that safety is also in place for me. :)

Lanesboro is the B&B capital of Minnesota. Who knew? I think we got one of the best, if not the best. Lanesboro also caters to the biking and tubing crowds, and that's another benefit of this B&B. They have a deal with the local bike rental shop for half off bike rentals. No need to bring your own, when you can get a good bike for $10 for the day. We spent 3 hours on the trail, and had a great time. Friendly, knowledgeable, helpful staff. Very nice room. Great breakfast. Several of the other guests were return customers. That says a lot.

We stayed here for a milestone wedding anniversary. The room was well appointed and very quiet. Nice touch with the "butler's pantry" - a self service coffee/cocco and well stocked snack bar for after hours. Breakfast was outstanding even by the high bar set by Lanesboror Bed and Breakfast Inns

Fabulous in every way!

4,8 su agosto 22, 2012

This was my first venture in trying out a B&B and the experience exceeded my expectations. My room was spacious, clean, well appointed and comfortable. Note that I stayed in the Steeple room that features a king-size bed, which was very comfortable! Breakfast was scrumptious including fresh fruit parfait, generous serving of full breakfast and delectable dessert! Wonderful hospitality by owner & staff. Also, the house and grounds were beautiful. I really loved the location being only a block away from the main street so had great access but also very quiet! I highly recommend the Scanlan House! Thank you for everything!

Still the BEST breakfasts!

Charming B&B with delicious food

4,4 su agosto 08, 2012

Very nice bed & breakfast. We had the Safari Suite, which was decorated nicely and included a nice fruit/cheese platter and champagne. The breakfast was delicious, three courses!! The Sarfari Suite also had its own porch and entrance. The one downside of this suite was that it was on the first floor and right next to the kitchen, it was not very sound-proof so it didn't feel very private when you could hear people walking around and preparing meals. We were able to rent bikes right from the bed & breakfast, which was a very nice feature. Overall, this was a very nice bed & breakfast, if we come back to Lanesboro we would definitely stay there again.

This was our first time at a B&B. We celebrated our 17th anniversary and truly enjoyed the Scanlan House. I didn't want a place with a bunch of foo-foo but something that was also comfortable for my husband. It met our expectations. The room was very comfortable with a private balcony which we very much enjoyed. When we got in after a wonderful dinner, I loved the coffee bar area in which we could make a cup of tea and popcorn. Easy and comfortable.

June Bed and Breakfast Stay

5 su luglio 05, 2012

We were in town for a wedding, and we needed to get into our room early. I called ahead to let them know the time we would like to be in our room 2 p.m. (check-in is 4 p.m.). They were so accomodating. They had our room done and the air conditioning on, very appreciated in this heat. This is a great place to stay. The room was so clean! I stayed in a room with a whirlpool, it was great to relax. Also, they have a butler pantry, which includes an ice machine for drinks and a variety of beers for a reasonable price. The breakfast was also amazing-three courses, which includes a wonderful dessert. The bed and breakfast is Victoria style, but everything that counts, the bathroom and tubs is updated. The shared shower was a little rustic, but that just was a lesson for me to get a room with a shower in the room next time. We will definitely return!

They thought of everything.

4,4 su luglio 04, 2012

The accommodations were great. Lots of extras are available, and there is lots to do if you are active or prefer a quieter visit. They have quite a knack for making each guest feel comfortable and welcome. They have thought of everything one may possibly want and have it easily accessible. They knew all the answers to the questions about what was happening in town. Nice portions, fabulous beginnings and endings, but only OK entrees.

The room we stayed in was right off the kitchen area therefore we were a little on edge about making any "noise". However we did have our own private entrance and parking. Breakfast in the morning was fantastic!!! And we really enjoyed sharing conversation with the other guests. We definitely would return to the Scanlan House - great hospitality!!! Thanks!

This is a lovely, Victorian B&B on the skirt of Main Street, Lanesboro. Our Sunrise room and bath were clean and handsomely decorated. Staff was friendly and accommodating. And breakfast on Sunday a.m. was homemade delicious with its just-right portions. We enjoyed glasses of wine on the front porch in the late afternoon; and cups of coffee in the yard in the early morning. This B&B is a healthy walk to/fro downtown shops, restaurants and theater; and walking/biking trails. We had a wonderful weekend in Lanesboro.

We were so impressed on all the improvements or should I say additions of private bathrooms with whirlpool tubs in all the rooms. Mary is a great hostess and cook. We love all the detail to the hospitality. Lansboro is a charming town and the The Commenwealth Theater was really fun. We enjoyed our stay and want to come back in the summer when the gardens at The Scanlan house will be in full bloom!

As we took a leisurely drive from the Twin Cities to Lanesboro, my wife and I commented on how beautiful the rolling hills, bluffs and winding streams were. As we pulled into the charming town and explored the quiet streets, we began to notice numerous B & B’s with cars parked outside. They all looked quaint, quiet and serene. The most beautiful and welcoming was our choice for the night, The Scanlon House. It was more than we expected both inside and out. The owner, Mary, greeted us and had a fresh pot of coffee brewing to take off the February chill. Our room was spacious and extremely well appointed, including a private whirlpool tub and half bath. The breakfast was delicious and we left extremely rested and ready to start our journey home. I would highly recommend this Inn to any couple looking for a respite from your busy life. We actually made a reservation for the summer before we left.

cozy victorian room! went in january 2012 and cuddled near our fire in the fireplace, long bubble bath with sunlight streaming in beautiful colored glass windows, extremely comfy bed!! Breakfast was prompt and delicious!! Just a warning - if you come in winter, be prepared for the entire town of Lanesboro to be shut down with the exception of a pub, a pizza/sub place and a coffee shop - and the latter 2 close at 8. Bring plenty of snacks and wine and you won't even need to leave your room!!

The breakfasts were amazing and the inn keepers very friendly.

Another outstanding visit

Two rooms, four people, B&B Holiday tour was fun and worth the money.

First time B&B stay went GREAT!

4,2 su novembre 09, 2011

This was the first B&B stay for my wife and I. We stayed at the Scanlan House in Lanesboro and have absolutely no complaints. Great property, excellent breakfast and an overall great experience.

Enjoyable small town hospitality

4,0 su novembre 08, 2011

Really enjoyed the elegance, yet comfortable hominess of the Scanlon house. Had some nice visits when coming and going, made us feel very much at home. Breakfast was Amazing! Great tips on dining out as well, we have recommened the Scanlon House to several friends already.

The home was absolutely beautiful. The ladies that run the place were wonderful. Everything was clean and neat. The room was very unique. I would also like to add that I have celiac disease and because of this I have dietary needs and meals were prepared just for me. We could not have asked for a better experience and we have already booked our stay for next year.

A great place for casual bikers

3,8 su ottobre 27, 2011

This B & B has abundant character, heavy with the atmosphere of the period this old Victorian lady represents. It has a good location, several rooms to choose from and an exceptional breakfast. Our room was quite comfortable, but lacked a place to hang clothing. We would stay there again if we returned to the area for biking.

Safari Suite

4,8 su ottobre 27, 2011

What a fun place to stay! We had our own deck with tons of seating, cheese/cracker plate AND fresh fruit plate WAITING for us! Loved the decorations- a lot of little personal touches: robes, lip balm, a fleece blanket to cover up with, magazines in the room! This was our second stay and we plan to come back next year!


5 su ottobre 24, 2011

Our stay was a mother/daughter get away. The Scanlon made it very special. We really enjoyed the community theater and the amish tour as well. We will certainly be back. Thank you!

Perfect for a Mother/Daughter Getaway!

I never had stayed at a B&B before, now I can't imagine staying anywhere else. Wish we could have stayed another night.


5 su ottobre 18, 2011

I took my wife here for a weekend in the fall because she had wanted to stay at a B&B (this was our first experience). This was absolutely fabulous! We would go the the historic scanlan house again and again.

a little slice of heaven

4,2 su ottobre 12, 2011

The Scanlon House is the most beautiful B&B..The room was great, especially the whirlpool tub! The breakfasts were amazing, but for me a little too much on the sugary side. Having said that, dessert for breakfast is a "sweet" idea. I would also recommend stocking up on green tea, something more and more people are drinking. I also loved the relaxed atmosphere of settling up your bill when you come in and leaving without any need to check out. I loved Lanesboro!!

Risposta del proprietario
We try not to give to much of this information while serving breakfast simply because many people do not like sugar free and low fat products. It seems if they know, they leave it rather than try it. But we actually try not to use to much sugar in the breakfasts. The muffins have no added sugar with the exception of the sugar sprinkle on the top and the ingredients in them (like chocolate). Our yogurt is sugar and fat free, the whipped cream we use is a non-dairy sugar free and the granola should only have a minimal amount of sugar in it. However... yes... the desert has plenty of sugar in it. LOL But it's really tough to turn down! Gotta think of it as your energy boost for the day. :) Adding green tea to the tea collection will not be a problem and is a very good idea. I appreciate the positive feedback and your suggestions! It really helps us to know what we can do to make your stay even more enjoyable. :)

A great Bed & Breakfast.

Scanlan House B&B

Didn't understand that there was no shower available, only a tub, until we got to our room. That kind of information is critical to know ahead of time.

Risposta del proprietario
Please note that all descriptions on the website/brochure are completely accurate. It states exactly what we offer in each room. We were capable of putting a private bath in “EVERY” room. Six out the seven rooms have two-person whirlpools, but only four rooms also have a shower. I am always available for questions via phone or email and I would be happy to help you find the room(s) that would suit your specific needs. If you are a "Shower" person... That is a GREAT question to ask whenever you make a reservation at any Bed and Breakfast, as space can be limited in early 1800 homes. Thank you for the review and the kind reminder to others.... Always ask questions. :)

extra vacation get away

4,2 su settembre 27, 2011

The host was very accomodating. The quality and selection of food rates among the best that I have experienced. We enjoyed conversing with the other guests. At age 72, I am finding that there is yet a lot to learn from others.

2 night stay

4,4 su settembre 25, 2011

Our room was beautiful. The private balcony and large whirlpool tub were a special treat. The bed and linens were by far the most comfortable I have ever slept in. The extensive DVD library and distance from town were two unexpected convienences. You do not leave the breakfast table hungry. Both mornings were equally wonderful.

September Stay

5 su settembre 22, 2011

We like it here so much that we have returned every September for the last four years and have already booked for next year. Lovely, relaxing, beautiful, friendly, refreshing - our favorite B&B!

Fantastic stay in a beautiful house!

4,0 su settembre 21, 2011

We absolutely loved Scanlan House! The innkeepers were so friendly and welcoming. Our room was beautiful and clean, and we loved the 24-hour pantry area for guests. Decor and outdoor areas are gorgeous! Delicious, huge breakfast--we definitely will plan to return again soon!


5 su settembre 18, 2011

I surprised my wife with a surpise honeymoon to Lanesboro, MN. The Scanlan House Bed & Breakfast was the last destination on our trip. Our stay was very comfortable and enjoyable. The staff is very friendly, and makes you feel right at home. The four course meal was amazing, and left you feeling very full and satisfied. We will definetely be returning for future visits.

Our stay was too short!

3,6 su settembre 17, 2011

The Scanlon House is truly dressed to the Nines! It is like staying in a Victorian Museum. Mary + Kirsten are very friendly and helpful, made us feel like family. The breakfast was outstanding....tasty, fresh and well presented. Two thumbs up from both of us. Our only regret....we needed another night or two enjoy the property and village of Lanesboro.


4,0 su settembre 13, 2011

Scanlon House is in a very good location from downtown Lanesboro and access to trails. Our host, Kirsten, is the perfect combination of professional and friendly. Our room looked exactly like the website pictures. Breakfast was delicious and Kirsten works with your dietary needs. I recommend staying here.

nice stay

3,8 su settembre 07, 2011

The service was great as was the food and location. The room was a teeny bit... oh I don't know, 'at-the-early-stages-of-falling-apart' - peeling wallpaper, cracked ceiling that kind of stuff. I'd stay there again though.

Risposta del proprietario
I only have one guest room with wallpaper on the ceiling... so this was easy to narrow down. Yes, there is a very small corner of wallpaper above the television set in the corner that has peeled off the ceiling. This is a "Brand New" ceiling & new wallpaper that had the unfornate circumstance of a water leak from an air conditioner run off on the mini roof dormer above that corner. We also had a small area in the dining room affected. So last week we actually replaced a medium size section of the roof to cure the problem. The ceiling will be repaired but not until November when off season begins. Since this is purely cosmetic and minor... we decided it was not worth cancelling peoples long term reservations for, as this fix does require a couple of days to repair. As we appreciate all feed back.. it would be nice if any guests the view something like this in any room to actually let Innkeepers know personally. We only found this water leak due to the guest that was staying in the room the evening it happened. They noticed new water marks during their stay. Thanks again for your feedback! We always appreciate it.

Comfortable, elegant and great location

5 su settembre 06, 2011

Beautiful rooms - the bed was very comfortable. Very clean. Breakfast was delicious but the best part was meeting all the other guests at breakfast and getting tips on the best bike trails. Many of the guests stay there every year they visit Lanesboro so we got alot of great advice from them. They do breakfast at the same time for everyone and it's served at a very elegant dining table in a beautiful victorian decorated room. The breakfast was incredible - hard to not eat too much before our bike ride. Also. it was just a short walk into town - maybe a fifteen minute walk through a quiet neighborhood and past a park, and several other B & B's or a five minute bike ride.

Safari Suite

4,8 su agosto 30, 2011

We had a wonderful night in the Safari Suite. It is luxuriously and tastefully decorated. The sitting area is a comfortable place to relax. We also enjoyed the private porch where we ate a delicious breakfast. The staff were friendly and hospitable, but also gave us the privacy we desired.

Fabulous experience at Historic Scanlan House B & B Inn

4,0 su agosto 30, 2011

We were made to feel welcome at this B & B from the moment we stepped onto their property! The breakfasts were outstanding (who has dessert for breakfast? We did, and it was wonderful!). The room was clean, we enjoyed the Jacuzzi bath, and the chocolates on the pillows were a nice touch. They had bikes for us to use, which was convenient. Each of the staff members couldn't have been nicer or more welcoming. We loved this Bed and Breakfast Inn, and fell in love with Lanesboro, too!

Our weekend in Lanesboro

5 su agosto 28, 2011

We enjoyed our stay at the Scanlan house very much. The food was terrific, the friendliness of the staff was great and the relaxing private atmosphere was just what we needed.

Memorable stay at the Historic Scanlan House!

4,6 su agosto 21, 2011

From the moment we arrived at the Historic Scanlan House, we felt right at home, thanks to Kirsten's warm hospitality. We were able to check in early, and appreciated all of Kirsten's recommendations on where to go and what to see in Lanesboro. The breakfasts were phenominal and the conversations with other guests while dining were enjoyable. We will always remember this trip to Lanesboro and our stay at the Historic Scanlan House because we got engaged while kayaking on the Root River! We would love to go back and will recommend Lanesboro and the Historic Scanlan House to our friends. -Andrea and Rodrigo

Risposta del proprietario
Andrea dn Rodrigo - I wanted to thank you for your kind review and Congratulate you on your engagement! I love hearing when my guests get engaged. And while kayaking no less! That is pretty darn creative. :) May you have many happy years filled with a treasure trove of beautiful memories! All my best...

A wonderful getaway

4,6 su agosto 14, 2011

Our stay at the Scanlon House was a perfect way to celebrate our first anniversary. We were very pleased with our accomodations and the breakfasts each morning were wonderful! We will definitely be returning to Lanesboro and will hope for a reservation at the Scanlon House again!

Scanlon B&B - Great Stay; Wonderful Breakfast

4,6 su agosto 13, 2011

My husband and I spent a low-key Sunday evening at the Scanlon House and it was everything I hoped. When we checked in, Kirsten's mother welcomed us and provided many helpful details about the home, what is available to us, and items of local interest. The room was very nicely appointed and the bed was quite comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and abundant. We had do quite a bit of walking to work some of it off. I would highly recommend the Scanlon House.

Our First Visit to Lanesboro

4,8 su agosto 09, 2011

We were warmly greeted by our hostess and given a tour of the beautiful Scanlon House. Then off to dine at the City Hall (wonderful lamb chops and steak!) A walk around main street and back to visit on the lawn as dusk descended... with fireflies flitting all around us. It was fairy tale land. We retired with a delicious cup of mint hot chocolate to a very quiet rest in our comfortable room. Breakfast was lovely... certainly more than any of us needed! Biking in the rain to Whelan was an experience but didn't hamper our fun. Strolling the shops in town was great fun and we found some good treasures. The trip ended with a jaunt to Avarian Acrea for some birding and tips on feed. We so appreciated the warmth of the staff and the cozy stay at the beautiful Scanlon House and will want to return again sometime.

Excellent stay

5 su agosto 08, 2011

We loved the gardens at the Scanlan - we enjoyed sitting out among the flowers on the beautiful furniture - very relaxing stay

First Time at a Bed and Breaksfast

Great get-away

We were given a friendly reception. There are ample hot drinks and DVD's available, beautiful gardens, and lots to do in the area. Quiet! We didn't know there was anyone else in the house until breakfast.

Lanesboro gem

4,4 su agosto 05, 2011

Welcoming inn keepers, wonderful house, yummy food, excellent air conditioning during a couple of hot summer nights, and a marvelous selection of DVD's made our two night stay one of the best we've had at a B&B. I'd definitely stay here again!

Beautiful B and B in Southeastern MN

5 su luglio 29, 2011

We enjoyed one night at the Scanlon House for an anniversary celebration. It is a gorgeous old house in a picturesque town. The flowers were beautiful and the yard was perfect for sitting under a shade tree to relax and read. The room we had was spacious, immaculate and filled with every ammenity you can imagine. We loved the comfortable king-sized bed and the 2-person whirlpool tub. It had air conditioning which was a plus on the hot, humid night were were there. There was a TV, DVD player (lots of movies available for check out), CD player with CDs, coffeemaker, mini-fridge, and a mini bar in the hall. They didn't miss a thing!! The gourmet breakfast was fabulous and filling. You can rent bikes at the house to ride the nearby bike trails. We want to go back and stay longer next time!!

Scanlan House - relaxing getaway

At the recommendation of our children we booked our time at the Scanlan House. Beautifully kept grounds and Mary greeted us. Our room was very comfortable. The location was great. Close to just about everything. Breakfast was outstanding. Would have liked a shower, there was only a tub, but that is the only change we would make. Great place.

Scanlan House Best B&B Value

5 su luglio 25, 2011

Thew rooms were large and comfortable, each having its own air conditioning unit. (It was very hot and humid during our stay.) The three course breakfast was a great value, included in the price, and they cater to people with dietary restrictions. Had they not told us about the sugar-free/gluten free meal we were eating, we could not have guessed. There is a great discount for renting bike while at the Scanlan House, and if you want to exchange it, they have a deal with the General Store in Lanesborowhere you can get the bike you want. Awesome stay! Would do it again!

Continued excellence

This was our third or fourth stay at the Scanlan House. As always, it lived up to our high expectations. Room was clean and neat. Breakfast was SUPERB! Grounds are neatly and tastefully decorted with a profusion of flowers making it a very pleasant experience! Hosts were friendly as always. Bob & Linda Cedar Falls, IA

We would go back in a heartbeat. Everything was wonderful. Hostesses with the mostest!!!! From the cotton candy incident (inside joke) to the amazing breakfasts to the wealth of local knowledge, this was a trip to remember and repeat. Would look no further than the Scanlan House.

Staying at Scanlon House

I really enjoyed the balcony off of the Masquerade Room. We used it a lot. The breakfasts were very, very good!

Scanlan House B & B

4,8 su luglio 13, 2011

My husband and I were at the Scanlan House last year and secided to make it an annual stop in Lanesboro. The yard is beautiful this time of year with many areas to sit under a shady tree and admire the flower gardens. The house is decorated with so many personal touches, right down to old fashioned hats we tried on for pictures. It made for a fun memory. Kirsten and her mother are very friendly and made us feel at ease right away. The beds sleep like a dream, and we could easily gain 5 lbs on the delicious breakfast, served with dessert! We recommend this B & B to anyone looking for a great get away.

Best Bed and Breakfast we've stayed

5 su luglio 13, 2011

The Historic Scanlan House Bed and Breakfast has become our favorite. The breakfast is so delicious that I think it has spoiled us as no other B&B has offered such a meal. The rooms are all different and offer their own charm and character. The grounds are impeccable and peaceful. The staff is over the top friendly. It may seem a bit more expensive, but the meal more than makes up for this as you do not need to eat lunch!! I highly recommend this bed and breakfast. J&L Rambo

1st time stay.. 1st class level!

5 su luglio 11, 2011

As a couple from Grand Forks, ND, we had not ventured to southern MN before and decided to stay over at this Bed and Breakfast, and then take part in a tour of the Amish community. Our time at Scanlan was lovely.. the beautiful Sunrise Suite was a good place to relax and feel rejuvenated. Outdoors was a floral gift to the senses. The wonderful brunch was as tasty as could be, as was the chance for us to visit with two other couples that had diverse and interesting lives. The mom/daughter duo tended to our needs and were friendly and very hospitable. It will be pretty difficult to find care at this level at any other B & B- We highly recommend the experience to others!

Our stay at the Scanlan House

3,0 su luglio 08, 2011

We stayed here for one night in July 2011. It is a lovely home. Every space is filled with knick knacks and authentic period decor. We stayed in the Masquerade Room, specifically because it had a balcony with a table and 2 chairs - a nice place to sit and enjoy the outdoors. We have stayed in B & B's all over Europe and have found that European B & B's are a much better value for the money. $145 for one night's lodging and a good breakfast is a bit too much, in our opinion.

Lovely Stay at the Historic Scanlon B&B

4,4 su luglio 06, 2011

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at this B&B. We were greeted when we first arrived and made to feel at home immediately. The room we stayed in was very nice (the Masquerade Room)... we especially liked the small balcony and the huge whirlpool tub. We also appreciated they provide candles to light, a huge movie selection, games, beverages, etc. Breakfast was delicious and we definitely had enough to eat. Also, Lanesboro is such a cute little town with plenty to do... cute shops, biking, tubing, walking, etc. We will definitely plan to visit Lanesboro and this B&B again.

summer stay at Scanlan B&B

4,2 su giugno 26, 2011

Great stay at the Scanlan B&B. The food and service were exceptional. Proximity to downtown was great. Just far enough to walk off that dinner, but not to far where you felt you needed to drive! The only disappointment was the internet connection. The room we stayed in the internet was hit or miss. The bright side is that we didn't want to spend much time on the web while we were there.

Quintessential B&B

4,4 su giugno 17, 2011

The Scanlan House is our standard for what we expect when we go to any other B&B. The historic house if beautiful, well cared for, and filled with convenient amenities. The hosts are engagingly friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful without being intrusive. The rooms with private baths, are comfortable and cozy. The three course breakfasts were delicious. If you’re going to be visiting Lanesboro and want a first class B&B experience the Scanlan House will not disappoint.

Exceeded expectations in most categories

4,2 su giugno 15, 2011

We were made to feel very much at home in this huge Victorian mansion. Now that we've seen the other rooms, we want to try a new one on our next stay.

Safari Suite

4,2 su giugno 14, 2011

The service was incredible - we got to eat our fabulous breakfast on our private porch or in our room. I loved the little details: rubber duckies in the tub, the cat that visited our porch, stepstool to the bed, extra blankets in the tv area, the journal for guests to write in. Thank you for making this a wonderful 10th anniversary!


5 su giugno 14, 2011

I would highly recommend staying at the Scanlan House B&B, if you want to experience the following: Beautiful, clean, inviting rooms; wonderful, filling food and outstanding service. Our room was clean and inviting and owners were friendly and accomodating. We stayed in the safari room which has a private entrance and parking spot. (An exceptional extra touch). The fresh fruit and champaigne in our room after dinner, was the icing on the cake! The breakfast, which was served to us in our room (another perk of the safari room) was outstanding and very filling. My husband and i really needed a private get away and we got everything we needed. I just can't say enough about the service we received other than we plan to make this an annual trip!

Great stay

4,6 su giugno 11, 2011

Could some adaptation for handicapped individuals such as the bed and the tub. Very impressed by the level of cleanliness and the friendliness of the staff. The staff was very accommodating. The fruit tray and champagne the first evening was a really nice touch. I would recommend this B&B to others. This was our first stay at a B & B and I look forward to another opportunity to stay.

I was very impressed with everything the Scalan House had to offer. It was a perfect spot to get away from the hustle and bustle of the Twin Cities. Great R&R spot. The rooms were perfect.

Historic Scanlan House - a wedding night wonder!

4,6 su giugno 05, 2011

We booked the Safari Suite for our wedding night in May 2011, and we were VERY impressed with all aspects of our stay. The room was elaborately decorated, and the common areas of the house were SO interesting to explore. Breakfast was one of the tastiest I've had in ages, delivered right to the sitting area of our suite. Upon checkout, we booked the same suite for our one-year anniversary weekend. I think we'll make it our new tradition.

Couldn't think of anything needing improvement!

My husband and I love the Scanlan House. We try to get there at least once or twice a year. Kirsten and Mary are simply wonderful hostesses. The rooms are adorably kept and extremely clean. The breakfasts are to die for - 3 courses - with enough food to take along for lunch later. We only had to eat once more each day! We hope to continue our visits for many years to come.

Since we are continuously trying new menus, it would benefit us significantly if “all” guests would let us know their personal thoughts or opinions about an individual menu. We are devoted to what we do and we want to make it an awesome experience for you. Your feedback can only make us better. (I however do not know which menu that was being referred to… would love it if you would contact me. As a chef… I am always up for a new challenge and making changes.)

Nice inn, not quite Victorian

3,2 su aprile 30, 2011

Friendly, helpful owner who went out of her way to make us comfortable and well cared for. Decor is nice but a bit dowdy. Rooms are well laid out but small. Food was plentiful but too much sugar and sweets and less wholesome fare. Location is excellent and parking was easy. A nice town to visit. Be sure to take in the history center, an impressive collection. Be aware that dining opportunities are limited out of season.

Risposta del proprietario
We are fond of the review feature because it not only helps to correct flaws or address issues of concern from our guests but also lets us know when we are doing a proficient job. I am responding only because I am not sure that a very small portion of this assessment wholly defines our accommodations. B & B guest rooms can be diverse sizes. Descriptions online are specific and all guests have the opportunity of choosing the space (small or large) that best suits their needs. (See virtual tours on website) We are very mindful about serving our legendary healthy/wholesome breakfast. We use fresh fruit and produce on a daily basis along with lean meats, no or low sugar content and low fat mixing products and grains including our homemade muffins made in diverse flavors (sometimes with chocolate). However our breakfasts end with a desert (made with sugar). That is optional to all guests and is the only type of sweet that we serve. We do work with dietary needs and allergies. If there is ever a special request… just let us know when making the reservation or checking in. We are more than happy to provide a wonderful savory breakfast that would be within your diet restrictions. We appreciate all input and thank you for taking the time to review our property. ¿

Loved It

4,6 su aprile 20, 2011

We booked our room online five days before our arrival. The website made it easy for us to choose a room - worry free! Our room (sunrise room )was huge. The king-size bed was so comfortable. My wife and I enjoyed the quiet and relaxed atmosphere. We came here in early Spring - We're booking our next trip this fall. I can hardly wait.

Relaxed and Comfortable stay

4,6 su marzo 30, 2011

We went for a weekend trip recently and even though downtown was not as busy during the summer, we had a great time. It's our first time in Scanlan and Kirsten is very nice and accomodating.Our room was very nice and comfortable. We enjoyed the balcony in our room and we had coffee in the morning even if it was quite chilly. Breakfast was good and has a very elegant setting and we had dessert served. We will come back again and stay in this place on the summer.

Excellent stay

Our favorite thing about Scanlan was the amazing comfort of the room we stayed in - temperature, amenities, and especially the fantastic sheets! We would definitely return.

First time B&B experience - outstanding!

4,4 su marzo 02, 2011

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at the Historic Scanlan House in the Steeple Suite. It was our first time at a B&B, we weren't quite sure what to expect. The house itself was beautiful - we arrived at night and it was all lit up. I can't comment on the landscaping (it was the dead of winter), but the outside looked well kept. The entry and lounges were very nice and clean. The room was immaculate. The bed was so luxurious...my husband and I have a sleep number bed and tend to be very picky about beds...this was perfect for both of us! Oh, and whatever they use to launder their linens is wonderful - everything smells amazing! I especially enjoyed cuddling up in their fuzzy robes. The breakfast. Oh.My.Gawd. First course was a yogurt parfait with granola, blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries. There was also assorted fruit on the side. The 2nd course was an omlette with feta cheese (I think) which was also baked with cheese on top. This was served with an apple cinnamon muffin (yumm!). And don't forget dessert! Oh yeah, you get dessert for breakfast! A delicious crepe stuffed with ice cream and topped with raspberry and chocolate sauce, sprinkled with assorted berries and powdered sugar. You'll be full until 2-3pm, at least. Enjoy!

Warm winter getaway!

My wife and I decided to get away from home for Valentine's weekend. We found Scanlan House online and were immediately impresssed with the house and amenities. We booked for two nights so we could get in some skiing on the Root River Trail and were not disappointed. The Scanlan House breakfasts are famous everywhere you go in Lanesboro. Our room was perfect on our arrival and had everythign we needed for a romantic, relaxing weekend.

A great Place!

The rooms were lovely and the hospitality is the best I have ever had at a B&B. In regards to the food my husband said it was the best breakfast he's had in his life.

nice, cozy stay

Found the Scanlan House to be quite comfortable and cozy. Short walk to town for dinner. Self serve coffee, tea, hot cocoa for guests was a nice plus. Breakfast was yummy and filling. Mary and Kristin (owners) were very nice. Would stay again.

Our 1st B&B Experience

4,2 su novembre 20, 2010

We chose the Masquerade Room for the oversized whirlpool for two and the turret balcony for anniversary. We couldn't have been more pleased. The room was wonderful, the whirpool and turret balcony lived up to our expectations and the breakfast was fabulous. We will DEFINITELY stay here again!!

Great B&B!

4,6 su novembre 04, 2010

My husband stayed at the Scanlan House for 2 nights celebrating our 1 year anniversary. This was our first time at a B&B. The room and house was wonderful, we felt very welcome and comfortable. We stayed in the Steeple Suite, and we loved having the 2 person whirlpool in our room. The breakfasts both mornings were amazing! We also enjoyed the kitchenette area where we could help ourselves to refreshments anytime. Our stay at Scanlan House felt very romantic and special--we definitely want to come back again!

Very inviting

4,2 su novembre 03, 2010

Unfortunately it was record lows and very windy the week we stayed at the Scanlan house. Fortunately warmth, hot cider, and fresh cookies were provided in the afternoon along with comfortable furniture to relax in. The breakfast was quite large and very good.

Charming Inn in beautiful area

The room was one of the best we have stayed in. Very clean and well appointed. The breakfast was delicious but almost too much. We would definitely consider staying there again.

Our first experience at a B&B

5 su ottobre 18, 2010

This was our first experience at a B&B and I can say we picked the best place to try it on. We found the Hostess most helpful, cheerful and accomodating. We would choose the Scanlon House again. It was a great experience.

Beautiful B&B

3,4 su ottobre 14, 2010

The Scanlan House is a beautiful home with all the niceities of a bed and breakfast. Food was fabulous as was the service. Upon taking a close look though the home was in need of repairs, wallpaper falling and cobwebs in many corners.

Risposta del proprietario
Our “Honey Do” list is always being added to. But as much as I hate to say it…. Sometimes a water leak from too much rain or a guest overflows a tub, etc… messes with things such as glue for wallpaper and so on. (We of course dislike those obscurities ourselves) Small things are of course dealt with instantaneously. Our challenge for minor things that happen during the summer is the construction time frame. Those are regularly fixed during the off season. If it is a major thing… It is of course addressed at once and taken care of. We are unable to tackle small interior construction projects that may be disturbing to the guests or make us close for a week or longer during our brief five month season. Re: Cobwebs – That is completely unacceptable! We will make sure that not only our staff but we the owners make every attempt to not let that materialize again. Our Guarantee and Promise to You: The Historic Scanlan House B & B has been operating for 26 years; it has had 2 million dollars in renovations in that time frame. We have always strived to be the “BEST” at what we do and have spared no expense. We will “always” continue to do so. Substandard is not in our vocabulary. Thank you so much for your review! Without guests feedback we would never know what we doing right or wrong.

Scanlan House Bed & Breakfast Inn

We only stayed one night, wish it could have been longer. Fabulous breakfast and the other guests were interesting to talk to. Staff were nice to talk to as well and not only friendly, but helpful with any questions. All the rooms were beautifully decorated with antiques and was like going through an antique shop. Private whirlpool was nice too. Lots of outdoor sitting areas on the grounds. Located in a quiet neighborhood just a short drive to downtown to shop. Also close to bike trail, Amish tour leaves from General Store, and Lanesboro is located in a valley with wonderful fall colored treed scenery all around it. There is are two churches in the middle of town on a very high peak to overlook the town and a dam. There also is a park for camping. Something for everyone!

Great Breakfasts

Breakfasts were outstanding!

Outstanding B & B Experience

4,6 su settembre 02, 2010

House and premise were beautiful. Pictures can not depict the actual beauty of this Inn. Service was outstanding and the breakfast served was delicious. Breakfast service had a cozy home style atmosphere. Rooms were cozy with beautiful specialized decor of theme for the room and very quiet. If you do not reserve a room at this B & B you are truly missing the boat....Great value...Outstanding Inn Keeper.... Cudos to Kirsten on a very well run B & B.

Excellent First Experience at B&B!

We had a wonderful time at the Scanlan House! It was nice to relax and enjoy some quiet time. Thank you!

Not a great experience

2,2 su dicembre 03, 2009

Our room wasn't ready when we arrived, we could tell things were missing right away (like someone had quickly finished setting it up). The shampoo and conditioner bottles that were set up were totally empty, meaning someone had used them and they just set them up- not very high standards of cleanliness there. The staff was late on everything, the coffee was an hour late both mornings, and the breakfast was at least 20 minutes late both mornings. They weren't ever in the house when we needed them (dripping wet, no shampoo or conditioner, etc). It was just not great, especially for the money. On the positive end, they allowed us to adjust our package deal when we couldn't do certain items and the breakfast, though late, was good. They also have a neat little butlers pantry with all sorts of hot drinks and a couple snacks. However, we won't visit this inn again.

The stay was so refreshing. the little town basically shuts down in the winter so it was like we have the town to ourselves. It was the perfect getaway. We felt like royalty in that house!

Historic Scanlan House

This place was so beautiful! Mary and Kirsten were one of the nicest people I have ever met! They made me and my husband feel at home and they gave us a tour of this beautiful B&B. I was amazed to see how great they decorated the place I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay! The breakfast was to die for and the hospitality was incredible. I will def. be coming back again and again, it was a great escape!! Thanks for being so kind you two!

We keep coming back!

This was our fifth stay at the Historic Scanlan House and we enjoyed it as much as we did the first time! Kirsten is such a wonderful host! The roow was specatular as always and the breakfasts can't be beat. If you're going to Lanesboro, you HAVE to stay at this place! Everything else will pale in comparison.

sweet and refreshing

Every year my sisters ( 9 of us) stay a few nights at a B&B. This year only 3 of us could make it and we choose the Scanlan Historic house, as it looked so charming and inviting!! we were NOT let down! We were well taken care of and felt very much at home and comfortable! The owner, Krista, is a gem and so servant minded! Coffee and tea 24 hours really was great, and candy in the dishes left around on the end tables was such a treat and made you feel very special ¿ Thanks Krista. I'm going to try to get my husband to stay there with me next time around. lol. Janey.

Fabulous Victorian Experience over and over

5 su agosto 23, 2008

I was so disappointed to see a review bashing this owner's personal decor choices. I've stayed at the Scanlan House no less than once a year since they opened, and every year gets better and better. The updates to make the rooms and plumbing more of a modern victorian have certainly been welcome, especially with the addition of the jacuzzi tubs and the complete kitchen renovation over the years. And Mary's new gardens and sidewalk addition last year is an amazing wow renovation setting them absolutely at the top. We love the new help-yourself pantry area also! I appreciate though, that they did not lose the details of the old victorian charm, because the trinkets were very much a part of that decor. So many of these brand new victorian b & b's go with the contemporary victorian feel, and to me, it just leaves it cold and more like just another hotel room. We keep coming back to the Scanlan House because of the warm cozy feel of the place, the absolutely wonderful people we meet, an amazing breakfast (we call it brunch!), and an outgoing personality and service of the family owners. The location is fabulous for walking or biking around town if you want to just park that car. The activities in Lanesboro and the beautiful scenery of the area is so refreshing to come and see every year that we never get tired of it. Thank you for such a great job in all you do Scanlan House! Drusilla R. Austin, Texas

Excellent Victorian Bed and Breakfast

4,0 su agosto 19, 2008

We stayed here almost 20 years ago when this B & B openend. We thought it was great at the time, but over the years the Innkeepers have remodeled and updated every aspect of this wonderful Victorian home. We are avid B & B'rs and This ranks in the Top five for us! The pictures do not do this place justice! When you walk in the door you are almost awstruck by the beauty of the woodwork and the Vintage (yet inviting and comfortable) dectorations and furniture. If you are looking for plain jane accomodations this is not the place for you. The photos and virtual tours are current and give a great way to choose your room and see the property. Great service and hospitality! Wonderful breakfast! Prices were very reasonable for a room with a whirlpool and fireplace. The gardens are unbelievable! Should be on a cover of a magazine.

Over done is an understatement

3,2 su agosto 09, 2008

This could be a charming B&B but the decorations have taken over! The wonderful beds, bathrooms and breakfasts are lessened by things, things and more things. It is hard to find a place to put anything down. Less would be so much more. I would not stay again and all because of an easily corrected problem that the owner appears to know about but minimize.

Beautiful B&B, Great Breakfast!

5 su ottobre 14, 2007

This is a beautiful B&B. Service by the staff was exceptional. We stayed on a Tuesday night. There were 3 other couples. It was very quiet, comfortable and cozy. The two-person whirlpool was a treat! All the public rooms were beautifully decorated. The exterior is just as it is pictured on this website. Coffee/Tea/Cocoa is available 24 hours a day. Breakfast was phenomenal...four courses, with fresh orange juice/coffee/tea. I would stay here again. Good value!

Great place to stay.
