About Greg & Doris

Greg and Doris have enjoyed hosting guests in their next-door rental home for the past 10 years. Avid gardeners and remodelers, they have poured great effort into making the house a relaxing and enjoyable place to stay. Having done extensive international travel themselves, they understand the little touches that make for a comfortable visit.

Greg & Doris purchased this house in 1998

Why Greg & Doris chose Minneapolis

Having lived next door for over 30 years, we had considered buying the home for family member use at various times, but then had an opportunity when the neighbors were suddenly transferred out of town for business. We targeted the house specifically for international and corporate relocation families, and have developed some great continuing friendships with our guests. Being right next door, it has been very convenient for us to attend to the property and assist guests when needed.

What makes this house unique

Spacious home, great for wedding parties, family or friends reunions, business groups.

Mixture of comfortable modern ranch layout, with classic woodwork & coved ceilings.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a beautiful home in a wonderful neighborhood. We definitely would like to use these accommodations down the road.

Lovely house in an adorable neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The house was spotless when we arrived. It was so well stocked, it had everything you need. Washer and dryer were great to have. The kids loved the downstairs area. The yard was beautiful with bunnys, chipmunk, birds and squirrels. The park right across the street was amazing for walking every evening. And the neighborhood could not be more beautiful. I would recommend this rental to anyone. Conviently located to area attractions.

Perfect group meeting spot

  • 5 of 5

Great spot for our groups retreat (6 people on a non-profit board). Great walking on the creek for breaks. Grocery store within walking distance. The only negative we could come up with was that the dishwasher was pretty load.
