Another good stay in Minneapolis.

  • 4 of 5

This property is located with easy access to public transportation. We even walked to the Walker Museum one day. The owners were helpful when we needed it. It was so nice to have a place to relax at night, play a game around the dining room table. Thanks. SJ

Great Place in Uptown

  • 4 of 5

This was my second stay at this location. Harry and Ronda were very easy to work with and willing to accommodate us with any needs that came up. The location is spectacular and the unit itself has a lot of charm. The only thing I would say is that the catch for the latch on the bathroom door needs to be replaced. Other than that it's a great spot. I would recommend it!

This is a wonderful uptown gem in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed here while I was temporarily based in Minnesota for work. It is a lovely 2 bedroom home with classic built-in woodwork and lots of charm. The location can't be beat as you can walk to the lakes, grocery stores and restaurants easily.

Harry was readily available and was only a phone call away if we needed anything. When the temp dropped to -20 he turned the heat up. When it snowed he was out shoveling the steps. He and Ronda made our stay an easy one. We will be staying here again in the near future when I am back in town for work.

I highly recommend this place!

Lovely, Well-appointed house felt like home

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here at Thanksgiving. WE had a group of five at the house and we hosted 10 for Thanksgiving dinner. The house had almost everything we needed in terms of dishes, bowls and cookware. I liked that the owner was just upstairs in case we needed anything (though we didn't). I kept this information because I think we'll be coming to Minneapolis again and I'd love to stay here again.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Two friends and I recently stayed at this property and it was perfect! We were in town for the Ryder Cup and we were looking for a place to relax with some more space than a hotel. The area was very cool, with lots of fun restaurants to choose from. We were able to walk everywhere. The property itself gave us plenty of room to spread out and had a great feel of home. We had a chance to meet Harry for a few minutes while departing and he was extremely nice and accommodating. My friends and I would highly recommend this location if you are planning on visiting the greater Minneapolis area!

Loved our Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean, spacious and comfortable. We had everything we needed. Harry was helpful. He outfitted my husband and me with bikes for the week, gave us good directions for getting around the city and handed out some restaurant tips. The house was close to the wonderful art museum, restaurants, grocery and within a charming neighborhood. We spent the week enjoying the city with our daughter who recently moved to Minneapolis. We will definitely rent the house again when visiting her and tell other family member that they should stay there, too!
