Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Rochester - Uptown Oaks House

3 bedroom home on a quiet residential street, 6 blocks to St. Mary's Hospital.

When you have to be away from your home, look to ours!

The house is located on a low-traffic residential street in Rochester's Uptown/Zumbro Park West area.

Just six blocks from Mayo Clinic’s Saint Mary’s Hospital, the house is close to restaurants, retail areas, parks, Rochester’s downtown core (and main Mayo Clinic campus) and extensive walking and biking trail network.


The property is anchored by mature oak trees and the fenced rear yard includes a large attached deck, garden area and children’s playground set. The deck is ideal for morning coffee or a relaxing evening beverage and there's a fire ring in the back yard if you'd like to enjoy a more rustic evening under the stars.

A compact single-car garage is situated next to the house and additional off-street parking in the paved driveway is provided for 2-3 vehicles.

The eat-in kitchen is equipped with a full size refrigerator/freezer, gas oven/range and dishwasher plus a suite of cooking utensils, Keurig coffee maker, small electric appliances, a Calphalon pot/pan set, baking pans, dining dishes, glassware and cutlery. A basic selection of cooking spices and condiments is stocked in anticipation of your arrival.

The living room is provided with a 40-inch high definition 'Smart' television, 200+ cable television/audio channels and a Blu-Ray disc player with a selection of movies. The 'Smart' TV has several apps to access your Netflix, Amazon Prime or your other personal streaming TV accounts. Snuggle up with one of the Eddie Bauer fleece throws in the living room while relaxing on the leather sofa, the large recliner or the glider rocker.

A TV lounge on the main level has a separate 24-inch high definition 'Smart' television and a Wii gaming console - perfect for watching that second TV show in the leather recliner, gaming or just as a quiet reading or relaxation spot.

High speed wireless internet service is available throughout the house along with cordless telephones for local and domestic U.S. calls. For something less electronic, check out the assortment of board games, jigsaw puzzles and books for your use!

The house has central air conditioning and accommodates up to six total guests in three bedrooms, one on the main level and two on the upper level. Rest easy in crisp bed linens with plenty of extra blankets and pillows stocked in each bedroom. A Nest smart thermostat provides easy and precise temperature control for your stay.

The bathroom is located on the main level and is equipped with a full size bathtub for either baths or showers. Heavy cotton bathroom towels by Chaps/Ralph Lauren will keep you warm and dry and aromatherapy hand soap by J.R. Watkins of Winona, Minnesota provides an extra touch of luxury.

A full size, front-loading washer and dryer for laundry is on the main level and comes with a starter supply of detergent and fabric softener. A full size ironing board and steam iron are on hand for any necessary touch-ups.


While the house is not rated as accessible for the physically impaired, entry is via six sidewalk/porch steps from the driveway to the front door. The living room, kitchen, bathroom, TV lounge and one queen bed bedroom are all on the main level. A shower chair is available for those not comfortable standing in the bath and a hand grip is provided for easier access to the tub/shower.

House size: 1,100 square feet

Pets: Not permitted in order to ensure the comfort of all guests renting the home

Smoking: Not permitted in the house; smoking area on rear exterior deck

Allergens: To reduce allergens in the home, the ventilation system uses a 3M micro-allergen filter, the interior is pet-free and smoke-free and all mattresses and sleeping pillows are protected with secured microfiber encasements. The home is equipped with a Honeywell electric air cleaner, useful in further reducing interior pollen or other airborne allergens.

The home is rented and managed by its owners who live nearby. A guide to the home's operation and local retailers, services, restaurants and attractions is provided for your reference.

About Tim Haskin or Mitch Nelson

Abound Hospitality was founded by hosts Mitch and Tim to address a unique need for short term housing in the Rochester area.

We knew from our own travels that renting provides tremendous flexibility and savings potential when compared to a hotel stay. We created Abound Hospitality to share the welcome that we’ve experienced around the world with visitors to our home city.

Our business backgrounds in the international airline, medical transportation and executive client services fields guide the work that we and our team do, with a focus on making your stay in Rochester both easy and comfortable.

From greeting you at check-in to your rental home to any questions or concerns that you have during your stay, we're available to you as both your hosts and your local Rochester experts!

Why Tim Haskin or Mitch Nelson chose Minnesota

This home is perfectly located close to Rochester's important attributes: world renowned medical facilities, restaurants, retail, parks and the city's vast, paved hiking/biking trail network.

Our rental services assist visitors who want more living space, or more personal flexibility, than is usually found in a hotel, an inn or by staying with family or friends.

With comfortable furnishings, a fully equipped kitchen, multiple bedrooms and free in-house laundry, this house becomes your personal home base in Rochester.

What makes this house unique

The home is just six blocks to Mayo Clinic's St. Mary's Hospital and a five-minute drive to downtown Rochester and the main Mayo Clinic campus.

The growing Uptown area of the city has recently expanded dining and shopping choices, yet retains the relaxed pace of the local neighborhood.

With its large eat-in kitchen, sunny rear deck and fenced yard, the home is easy to relax in and around. Enjoy morning coffee on the deck overlooking the mature trees or unwind with a relaxing beverage as the sun sets.

This is a great home from which to base your Rochester visit or an ideal home base for exploring Rochester and Southeast Minnesota!

The perfect place to stay in Rochester. I cannot thank Mitch and Tim enough for maintaining such a clean and welcoming environment for weary travelers. They go above and beyond, even having a gift bag of snacks waiting for us upon arrival. Lovely people, lovely property. My husband and I will try to stay here for any and all future Mayo trips.

Delightful and Well Appointed House

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautifully decorated, very clean, and has every item one could want, all tastefully arranged. The kitchen is well equipped. I particularly enjoyed using the Keurig coffee maker and the front loading washer and dryer. All the household items were provided, such as detergents, paper towels and facial tissue available in every convenient spot. Safety features were also provided, such as two fire extinguishers and flashlights by each bed. This was our first Home Away stay, and we feel that we hit the jackpot. Tim and Mitch could not have been more attentive or pleasant. They had obviously thought through how a guest would actually use the house. The books, puzzles, and games were an added bonus. We particularly liked the electronic lock at the front door, which meant no key to carry when we went for the many walks we took by the nearby lake. We also enjoyed walking to four coffee houses on 2nd Street. Trader Joe's and Apache Mall are a short five-minute drive. We were in Minnesota to visit family and did not visit the Mayo Clinic, but it is also a short drive away. We stayed for three weeks and enjoyed every minute. We would highly recommend this property to friends and family.

Thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

5 star accommodations! We loved the decor and layout of the house. So much thought has gone into what a traveler would need. It was nice to have such a quiet place to relax and sleep. We felt like we were at home. We have our own vacation rental so I came home with some great ideas for our home. The house was spotless. Great job Tim and Mitch. This will be our place to stay annually we come to Rochester

cozy and adorable

My workmates and I spent the week at Tim and Mitch's place and it was everything they advertised. The house is impeccable, everything we needed was available and the location and neighborhood was perfect. I would recommend this place to everyone.

Perfect fit for our family!

  • 5 of 5

This house came highly recommended by a friend who had stayed here previously, and it did not disappoint! Tim and Mitch were so accommodating and kind. Every need that our family had was met with ease. The house is super comfortable and located only a few minutes from the St. Mary's campus, and just a few more minutes from the main campus. Easy access to both is ideal, and this house has it! The kitchen is perfectly equipped for any cooking, and the bathroom shower has the greatest shampoo and soap dispensers! Our 11 and 13 yr old sons came with us, and they love the TV room that has Wii and many different games! There are many restaurants within a 5 minute drive and now that we've stayed here, we won't stay anywhere else!
