Synopsis: In the year 2000, the author and her husband left professional careers and a metropolitan area of over 2.5 million people for the small town of Lanesboro, population 754, in rural, southeastern Minnesota. For the next chapter in their lives, they would own, rehabilitate and operate the 14 room, 19th century Habberstad House Bed and Breakfast. Get the inside story and a taste of a retirement that is anything but that, as two city slickers learn what goes into trying to find balance in their lives as they build a very successful business. Together they use old-fashioned elbow grease to clean, garden and make beds, while conquering modern technology to advertise and take reservations on the internet, do the book-keeping, and cut payroll for the cleaning ladies, all while trying to carve out a little time for themselves. Enjoy the recipes that have been served over the years, each one with its own special story, as well as some actual reviews posted by guests over the years. Peek at what it's like-the good days and bad days, learning the ropes, cooking breakfast for twelve people who are on every imaginable diet possible, completing house renovations and constant repairs, wondering about the ghostly bumps in the night, sharing a home with thousands of guests over twelve years, dealing with the ups and downs that go with learning how to fit into a small town culture-all the things that go on behind the door marked Private. Welcome to the Habberstad House!
