About borgen.wayne@gmail.com

We love the Kutzke Neighborhood and older homes - this is our second home here. My wife worked at Mayo Clinic for 38 years and living this close eliminated the need to contend with parking as she could easily walk to work. I worked for Augsburg College in Rochester and could bike to work which I much enjoyed after years of commuting.

borgen.wayne@gmail.com purchased this house in 2005

Why borgen.wayne@gmail.com chose Rochester

We lived in various outlying neighborhoods in Rochester for many years - neighborhood home, acreage and a townhome. We always enjoyed Rochester but we always drove to get downtown and to work. In 2002 we moved to a house in Kutzke and enjoyed the people we met and the older homes. In 2005 we purchased our second home in Kutzke and still enjoy our time here.

What makes this house unique

The woodwork, floors, layout and vintage windows first drew us in. We loved having the master bedroom on the main floor, which is uncommon for 1920's homes. The proximity to bike trails, Mayo facilities and downtown sealed the deal.

A Perfect retreat to recover in from surgery!

  • 5 of 5

We've been to Rochester several times before for health needs and always stayed in motels. This time we knew it would be a 6 week recovery time and decided to rent a home for that period. We could not have picked a better home, area, or owner to help us through every need we ran into during this time. Wayne, our owner was "like family"; very sensitive to our needs from the normal ups & downs of surgical recovery. He walked us through the home as we arrived and gave us the freedom to treat it as our home. The comfort of that freedom allowed for a lo-stress recovery and healing for my husband. His home is spacious and has many similar items that I have in my home, so I really felt I was at home, not out of town as we faced each day after surgery. Even though you don't see the piano in any of his pictures, it became a soothing therapy for rest as I played tunes from long ago. Since husband slept, I would say that was a positive.The private patio off the 2nd bedroom on ground level gave us restful periods on beautiful spring days that also helped in his recovery. Access to Kutzky Park was an exceptional bonus for healing from major surgery and we were able to walk it daily as well as walk to the clinic for appointments or just plain walking activity.

The neighbors also embrace you as "one of them" and open their arms, but carefully respect your need to heal.

Wayne's home is completely supplied with most everything you might need (save some perishable foods!) for a long stay. It's clean and well furnished as well as artfully decorated so if you are looking for a "home away from home" and have to stay a while, I would encourage you to look this lovely home up. That 1st question you asked didn't really give me much choice in my answer, but indeed we both grew to "love" staying here in spite of not necessarily "wanting to come here".

Beautiful and cozy home that is conveniently located to Mayo Clinic

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here while I was at the Mayo hospital. It is a beautiful and cozy home in a cute neighborhood close to the Mayo Clinic. The home is set up nicely for multiple people. My mother had her own space upstairs with a bed, bathroom, and living space. The basement has another bed and living space plus a wonderful laundry room. . The main floor had two bedrooms and a bathroom and kitchen. The living room is so cozy with a fireplace and piano. The house has everything you could possibly need! Wayne was very kind and was available for any needs. It was so nice to know that my family was so comfortable while I was in the hospital. Wayne, we appreciate everything!!!

Perfect for my Family

  • 5 of 5

I had to find somewhere to house my family coming from out of state, last minute. This was a perfect fit for them. Wayne was very flexible and accommodating. Will rent from him again.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

The house worked fantastic for all our needs. Very comfortable it was just like being at home. We will definitely stay again when in Rochester. The house is centrally located to the clinic and hospital and grocery store.

So Appreciative!

  • 5 of 5

After ending up in Rochester for Mayo, we were so fortunate to have found this gem of a home and owner (thank you, Wayne!). The location could not have been any better as we were able to easily and quickly walk to the Mayo buildings. The home is in a great neighborhood--it is also extremely comfortable. Although the house is undoubtedly large it also felt cozy. The furniture and beds were great, and there was a PERFECT RECLINER in the living room in front of the television. There is a nice sitting area in the front of the yard, and a beautiful, fenced-in patio on the side of the home. The host was amazing--he was kind, accommodating, quick to respond to questions, and went out of his way on more than one occasion to help us.
