Welcome to A Guest Hus Motel and Historic Knotty Pine Cabins — Your Home Away From Home, in beautiful Lanesboro, Minnesota! We offer a friendly five-room motel in a 1900 home, plus two charming vintage cabins, all with private baths and air conditioning.
What is a Hus? Hus is the Norwegian word for house, and we are so-named because of the strong Norwegian heritage of Lanesboro!
Our accommodations are:
Homey: Explore the gardens, glide on the glider, or relax on the patio to the sound of the gurgling fountain. An old-fashioned brick barbecue grill is available for guests, as well as picnic supplies and tiki torches. Or, rent the whole Hus for a family reunion or wedding, and have the run of the place!
Affordable: Excellent mattresses, high quality cotton sheets, fluffy towels, good coffee with real half and half in ceramic mugs. We try to celebrate life’s little luxuries, reasonably. Rooms and cabins start at $79/night.
Impeccably Clean: We’ve received a 100 percent score from the Minnesota Department of Health every year since we opened in 1992!
Both smoke-free and pet-friendly, we offer locked bike storage, off-street parking, an outdoor patio, WiFi, and morning hot beverages. Please note that all of our rooms have private baths and air conditioning.
Just a 10-minute walk from downtown Lanesboro, our setting is gardeny and peaceful, allowing you to relax and unwind.
