Scandinavian Inn

The Scandinavian Inn is an environmentally-sensitive bed and breakfast in the historic community of Lanesboro, Minnesota. Our Victorian home, with carved woodwork and period furnishings, was built in 1893 by Ole Habberstad, a young entrepreneur and businessman who journeyed from the Norwegian community of Eidsvold in the mid-1800's.

Each of our four bedrooms has a queen-size bed. Our full breakfast includes organic or regionally-grown produce, free-range eggs and meats, and shade-grown fair trade coffee. "I can honestly say that was the best breakfast I've ever had."

We line-dry towels and linens as the weather permits, apply no synthetic lawn chemicals, cut grass with a non-motorized mower, run errands by foot or bicycle, and clean with environmentally-friendly products. We provide air conditioning, but we like to give open windows, fans, and natural ventilation a chance first. "You have made us feel very much at home in an elegant way. Extremely gracious hosts."
