The house was fully remodeled the house in 2017 and we channeled it's original 1914 charm while adding all the convenience of the 21st century. Hygge Haus is located in the Merriam Park neighborhood, just a short walk from Whole Foods, award winning restaurants, and terrific shopping. Macalester College, the University of St. Thomas and Concordia College are all within 1 mile. We are here to meet any of your needs!
Hygge Haus has over 2000 square feet space, all designed in the Scandinavian spirit of Hygge or coziness. The entire space was renovated in the fall of 2017 to create the perfect home away from home. The main floor has 3 separate seating/living areas along with a dining room and large kitchen. The main floor also includes a bedroom with a queen bed right next to the remodeled bath. There are 2 "master bedrooms" on the 2nd floor, each with a king bed appointed with lovely bedding (and yes, we also provide nightstands, reading lamps and convenient bedside charging stations in each bedroom). We've stocked the lower level entertainment area with a large screen TV, a game table, kids nook with toys, books and board games. The laundry room, also on this level is fully stocked (including an iron and ironing board) to make sure laundry is less of a chore and more of pleasurable activity if you must do it on vacation. There is a small 1/2 bath in the basement for your convenience.
The Accoutrements: Mastering the details brings us joy! With this in mind, each bed has been outfitted with Leesa mattresses, two different kinds of pillows including "My Pillows" (made right here in Minnesota!) and luxurious sheets. We believe in traveling light. For ease of packing and to add further luxury to your visit, our bathroom provisions include organic shampoo, conditioner and shower gel. And, of course, there are plenty of fluffy white towels for everyone. The refrigerator is always stocked with complimentary bottled water and our Keurig machine offers a nice selection of coffee blends. Please let us know what you like! We are happy to customize our offerings prior to your arrival based on your personal preferences. Our house is immaculately maintained. We use every penny of the cleaning fee to provide a professional cleaning service on each turn.
