Our 3,600 sq ft, 5-bedroom house located just off Hwy 52 near Saint Marys Hospital is ideal for anyone visiting the Mayo Clinic. The back yard is landscaped to be a private retreat in the heart of the city. Private basement with new 8x10 bathroom.

The space

I'm currently sharing this huge home with just my wife, a baby and our two cats, so we figured why not make better use of the space by offering it to travelers who want more space — a lot more — to stretch their legs than at a hotel? The basement is about 1,100 square feet and fully furnished with a queen bed, multiple couches, a TV, work area, closets and a brand new 8x10 full bathroom. It's perfect for a private stay of any length.

Guest access

Guests will have full use of the main floor and basement. A mini fridge and microwave are available in the basement, but you're also welcome to use the kitchen. The back deck includes a large table with six chairs and a grill that's shared during the warmer months.

Interaction with guests

I'm a journalist with a flexible schedule. My wife is a nurse. We generally enjoy having company, but the house is big enough where visitors can have their privacy, too. Your interaction with us can be as much or as little as you'd like. My wife likes to cook...but she's also a vegetarian. Win some, lose some :)

Other things to note

Saint Marys Hospital is exactly a mile away, which makes it about a 15-minute walk. Unless it's winter. This is Minnesnowta, afterall :)

Also, we have two fat, friendly cats. I'm semi-allergic so we vacuum often...but they're inside cats and will be around the common areas. There's a door to keep them out of the basement space.

The perfect place to stay if you have family or friends receiving treatment at Mayo or St Mary's Hospital. We spent 9 nights total here. Brett was very helpful when we needed to extend our stay a couple of times. It is wonderful just to have a whole floor to chill in after a long day. Beds were great, fabulous new bathroom and totally comfortable relaxing living area. So much cheaper than a hotel and much better.
