You'll have the entire first floor of our completely renovated, 100+ year-old house. There's a comfy queen bed plus a sofa. Hardwood floors, claw-foot tub, A/C, fully equipped kitchen. You really don't need a car to get around -- within three blocks you’ll find the Light Rail Station, bus stop, Target, Cub Foods, great restaurants, public bike rentals, & trail access.
Our house, which was completely renovated in 2012, is over 100 years old (late 1880's) and has all the character of that era including hardwood floors, a claw-foot tub, bay window, and wrap-around porch. The bedroom has a queen bed with a comfy Beautyrest Spa Collection mattress. A third guest could sleep on the sofa in the living room. Even in Minnesota, it can get HOT in the summer, but no worries – the A/C and bedroom ceiling fan will keep you cool. If you like to stay in and cook, the eat-in kitchen is fully equipped and stocked with basic pantry supplies like coffee, tea, sugar, flour, spices, etc. Otherwise, we provide you with directions and menus for nearby restaurants. There are two "smart" TVs from which you can surf the internet or stream video. You can access your own Netflix or Hulu+ accounts, among others. For this reason, we do not have cable TV. Network stations are available via antenna or you can connect your laptop to the TV and get episodes on demand for free from the network websites.
You'll have the entire first floor to yourself. Feel welcome to relax on the porch or in the yard.
Interaction with guests
You might bump into our upstairs tenants and their two, cute, little dogs in the back yard, but otherwise your stay will be undisturbed. (We very rarely hear their puppies bark.) There’s a lockbox to access keys for check in if we can’t meet you for your arrival, but we’re available by phone, text, or email if you should need us.
Other things to note
We pride ourselves on cleanliness – that means you can be assured that ALL of the linens, including blankets, bedspreads, and pillow shams, are laundered between guest stays. We even wash the shower curtain and bath mats.
We want your stay to be wonderful, so please let us know if we can help you with anything!
We have full-time upstairs tenants who own two, small, quiet dogs. Please close the fence gates behind you when entering or exiting the back yard.
Please keep noise to a minimum to avoid bothering the other tenants, and they will show you the same courtesy.
The portable fire pit in the back yard belongs to our tenants so please don't use it.
Overall, we hope you love our house and treat it like it was your own, leaving it as you found it.
