This beautiful, roomy home is superbly located between Lake Harriet and Lake Calhoun, with access to trails, walking/biking paths, swimming, cross-country skiing, Linden Hills shops & restaurants. Easy access to public transportation--downtown, uptown, University of Minnesota, Guthrie Theatre, Walker Art Center, Mpls Institute of Art, etc.

Look up the NY Times article "36 Hours in Minneapolis," dated August 11, 2016--it says it all, and we are just 800 feet from the shore of Lake Harriet!

The space

We strive to provide 5-star service to all of our guests. If you need anything during your stay, please let us know!

We completed a major renovation of our home in 2007. The renovation included a new kitchen/FR and powder room on the first floor. On the second floor we built a new master BR suite with air/soaking tub, and separate shower with dual shower heads; plus a new full bath, shared by the other three bedrooms. The original parts of our Craftsman-style home are elegant, inviting, and relaxing. In addition to the kitchen/FR on the first floor, there is a large LR with built-in oak bookshelves and a cozy fireplace; plus a large formal dining room with a a built-in buffet. Upstairs, in addition to the new part described above, there are three comfortable bedrooms, and a convenient laundry station in the hallway.

Guest access

Guests will have access to entire house minus the lower level, where hosts stay during your visit, if their cottage guesthouse is rented. Guests have complete privacy during their stay, but owners are close by if needed. Of the four bedrooms, two offer Queen-sized beds, one has a full-sized bed, and one includes two twin beds.

Interaction with guests

We love meeting and interacting with people, but are totally respectful of guests' privacy needs, and will tailor your experience to suit your needs. Most of our guests have enjoyed the option of having complete privacy in the space, and that works just fine for us!

Other things to note

We began offering our home on Airbnb in December 2014, and as you can see from our reviews, it has been a big hit! It's a lovely place, and we truly enjoy hosting.

There is one off-street parking spot. The driveway is on the right side of the home, where there is room for one car. Please park in such a way as to allow vehicles to enter and exit the driveway.

We also have a cottage/carriage house in back of the property, at the end of the driveway (also listed on Airbnb).

Please remove your shoes at the door, to protect the hardwood floors. We ask that our guests treat our home with care and respect, and leave it in the same condition in which they find it. We do not allow smoking, parties, nor excessive noise, out of respect for our home and for our neighbors. We have a no-pet policy. There is one off-street parking spot.

Everything was perfect apart from the fact that we got the wrong result at the Ryder Cup!!! The house is spotless, in a very safe neighbourhood and we had a great time. Thank you very much indeed.

Chris, thanks so much for choosing our place for your first visit to Minneapolis. It was a delight to host you and your friends (and sorry about the Ryder Cup results, lol!). Now that you've had a taste of our beautiful city, we hope you come back to further explore. You are welcome at our place any time!

Our host was in regular communication before our visit. The location was ideal for us, near our relatives and within walking distance of Lake Harriet. We could hear the enjoyable music from the lakeside bandstand. The house was very fully equipped. We strongly recommend this house for a family holiday.

We were in town for the Minneapolis Medtronic Marathon, and picked up our runner, daughter and husband coming from Washington at the airport for the weekend. We brought our other daughter and her 1 year old from Green Bay with us, as well as our brother and his wife. This home was the perfect location for the airport and for this event, as the route was almost in the back yard. Our hosts were very responsive, and graciously provided us with a highchair and pack 'n play which freed up car room for us. The kitchen was well appointed, and the living spaces spacious, allowing us to cook at home and relax together before and after the race. Did I mention that the home is beautiful? Highly recommended!

We always love our stay at Katie and Curt's lovely home. All the comforts of home are abundantly provided and the home is impeccably clean, which ensures a most relaxing and comfortable stay. Katie and Curt are also very responsive to any requests we may have. We truly feel like their home is our home away from home. We look forward to our next visit!

Katie was a great host and our crew really enjoyed the Airbnb! Great location - in walking distance to lots of restaurants and close to Lake Harriet. Definitely recommended!

We stayed here for our son's wedding. It was a great space for gathering, with beautiful and functional shared spaces and enough room for everyone. The adults sat around the kitchen and dining room while the children played right next to us in the den. Great bakery only a couple of blocks away made for a delicious breakfast. Walks down at the lake kept everyone fresh. Were a little concerned about having a few cars but it was okay and the neighbors were friendly. Enjoy!
