Great check-in experience95% of recent guests gave the check-in process a 5-star rating.

Unique Mid-century Modern meets Japan in a great neighborhood full of architectural gems. This updated 1950's architect-built passive-solar artist retreat house is surrounded by trees and Japanese Gardens. Casual comfort not sterile. Complete tranquility in an urban setting. 10 min from downtown Mpls and very close to U of MN St Paul campus. Lively, friendly neighborhood in walking distance to grocery store, gift shops, indie bookstore, wine shop, yoga studio, coffee shops and great restaurants.
