1921 Craftsman bungalow located in a very safe, quiet, and urban neighborhood just footsteps from the Mississippi River; coffee shops & restaurants are within an easy 2 block walking distance. Easy biking across the Lake Street Bridge (3 blocks away) brings you to a wide-range of additional dining options. Express bus to downtown 1 block away
Nice Ride rental bicycles are available nearby; bike to downtown MPLS, ST. Paul in 30 minutes! No car necessary here.
We have a minimalist approach to furnishing our space - enough to be comfortable but clutter-free. In the summer, enjoy coffee or breakfast on the lovely front porch or relax in the open and light-filled living and dining rooms. Kitchen is 'alley-style' with everything you may need. There's a finished space in the attic (my home-based yoga studio space) that you may use, as well as a semi-finished basement with large, flat-screen television. Front loading laundry is in the basement. Last, the backyard is large and open, with a grill and table for enjoying the warm weather. Fire pit for enjoying evenings.
Christine or Todd (or one of our parents) will provide you with keys upon your arrival. We are available for contact by phone or text at any time. Christine's parents live less than one mile away and their contact information will be provided as well. If you have bicycles, you may use the garage for storage. Last, we DO have a security system and will provide you with a code to use while you're here. We encourage you to use this, despite the general high level of safety in our neighborhood.
Interaction with guests
We are available by phone at any time.
No parties... a few friends or a dinner party with a few friends or family is entirely acceptable. Please no loud music or noise after 10 p.m. as this is a residential neighborhood.
Myself, my husband, and our 11 year-old live here in Saint Paul, just footsteps from the Mississippi River Bluffs. Urban living at its finest - we enjoy hiking, biking, walking, yoga, live music, and art.
I've spent the last 17 years teaching yoga and meditation. Todd works in IT.
We have enjoyed broad travels together as a family and as a couple, prior to having children. Amongst the places we've spent time, Mongolia is perhaps the most exotic. We used airbnb extensively as we traveled in Europe for 2.5 months in 2014.
