Brenda and Bill were so welcoming and treated us like family. The photos in the listing don't do the apartment any justice. They did a fantastic job remodeling the basement. It has large windows so you don't feel couped up like you would in a traditional basement. Brenda and Bill were very accommodating to some of our special needs. We purchased a home a 1/2 mile away from them and intend to remain close with our new friends.

Hosts were super nice and communications were prompt and concise. Accommodations were spotless. Everything clean, functional and accessable. Bed was very comfortable. Plenty of extra pillows and blankets to choose from. Bathroom was super clean and well stocked with linens, soap and paper goods. Even though this is a basement apartment, it is warm and and cozy. Neighbor felt safe. A great value. My son had appointments at Mayo Clinic. Door to door took us 20 minutes in snowy weather. Easy drive in good weather.

Brenda, her husband, and Janelle were great hosts while my father was there for an extended Mayo visit. They allowed us to stay there with him on weekends while visiting. They gave us great advise on sights to see and things to do while in the area. We are truly appreciative of their hospitality!

I love gathering people together! I love to travel. Although most of our travels have been in the U.S., we have visited Panama, Italy, Canada and Mexico. Our family's faves are Hawaii, Florida and Mexico. We always have the most fun when we visit places where we can connect with the local people and culture.

My Husband of 45 years and I are empty nesters and are excited to share our home with you.

We have hosted foreign exchange students and have had many foster children come through our lives and home over the years. We grow our family from befriended strangers!

I believe each of us is as happy as we choose to be. Life is an adventure. And we all have a story to tell!
