Overview

About the property

5 bedroom, 2 bath, 2,800sq. ft, on shuttle bus line and walking distance to Mayo

Hotels are EXPENSIVE, impersonal, and cramped. Our guests pay a "hotel stay" price and receive 10x the space, 5 private rooms, a full kitchen, and fenced in yard to spread out and relax. We have hosted solo travelers, couples, families and 10+ person groups for everything from weddings, to holidays, to long term medical services. Incoming patients of the Mayo Clinic enjoy that we are 5 min. away from the heart of the Mayo Campus and easily within walking distance of downtown. The home is conveniently located on the bus line on 2nd Ave SE which runs directly to the Clinic campuses and between the downtown and St. Mary's districts.

About Brandon Andrews

Born and raised in MN we originally purchased this 2800 sq. ft. home in 2011. After many years of housing friends and family attending university we had been planning on selling and downsizing when a friend contacted us in need of help. A woman he knew needed a place to stay while her son received treatment and the Ronald McDonald house was full which is the only other option for struggling families with children. While staying with us she introduced us to the Vacation Rental idea knowing other travelers would love our home.

Brandon Andrews purchased this house in 2011

Why Brandon Andrews chose Rochester

We jumped at the chance to purchase this based on many factors. It has an unusually large footprint compared to the rest of the homes in the neighborhood. We loved that is was directly across from St. Francis Catholic church, and close to the bike trails and public parks that make Rochester so beautiful.

What makes this house unique

We live nearby so If you need something just ask! If we CAN help you we WILL help you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I was extremely pleased to stay at Brandon's house for a few days. It was a short walk to the downtown Rochester area, and had everything you would need. Very spacious, gym in the basement, and a quiet back patio. I would absolutely recommend staying here, and will look to stay here again in my future visits to Rochester.

Great location, neat and tidy, cozy yet plenty of space for the four of us. Only con was the mattresses--two of the queens were sagging and uncomfortable for us. Thanks Brandon for offering this home to weary travelers!

Nice place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

First, the good: The owners were exceptionally easy to work with and responded to my questions quickly. The house was comfortable and there were supplies available that we hadn't anticipated. The location is convenient to a grocery store (Cub Food), gas station (Shell), and is only about a mile or two away from Mayo Clinic.

The only bad thing that happened while we were there is that there was some loud brawl in the middle of the night in the driveway at the house across the street that resulted in the police coming. It kept us all awake and took a while to resolve. The second night that we were there was calmer but there were still loud people out in the street late at night. Not sure if this was a one-time thing or not, but I thought I would note it.

Great Family Home

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place to stay! Fit our family including two doggies very well with lots of room. Had everything we needed, comfy beds and a easy short drive to downtown. Lots of dishes, towels and everything we needed for the kitchen. Dogs loved the gated backyard, wasnt able to use the firepit because of rain but seemed like a cozy spot. Would def recommend, great comfy home with lots of old character (including a piano, how cool!) wifi and cable worked great!
