We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay at Liten Hus. The attention to detail and all the furnished amenities made us feel so comfortable. We loved being able to walk the neighborhood and appreciated shopping and restaurants nearby. Having grown up in MN we spent much time visiting friends and relatives so the location of the house was great. We would love to stay here again in the future.

Liten Hus is a very charming home that is very modern in decor. Prestine in cleanliness. Bed comfortable, kitchen had all we needed for our 3 night stay. Great location for touring around the Chain of Lakes. Easy biking to Minnehaha falls. Lots of pubs and bakeries in the immediate neighborhood. Great little home for quiet and rest too. Worth it's 5 stars!

De-"Lite"ful Liten Hus

  • 5 of 5

Oh my goodness, where do I start? If you want to stay in a charming, elegantly renovated house that has clever and comfortable decor, then look no further. And...if you want a hostess who will treat you with utmost care and respect, look no further. This house is a 5-star hit on everything you could want. The neighborhood is quiet; the blue line light rail is in walking distance; biking is wonderful; walking to stores and restaurants is a plus; using the garage or parking right out front is a bonus! Add housekeeping if you want/need it, and you have it all! Its size belies its comfort and livability for 1, 2, or up to 6! I was here for 4 months as a contract nurse and I will definitely be back for the next go round. Reserve early though, because it goes fast due to its location and charm!!! PS I took a handful of her business cards to give to my friends at home too!

This house is so charming and comfortable. My fiancé and I came for a Vikings game and it was central to all of our destinations. The owner has great attention to detail and is extremely helpful.

Fun decor, Great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We happened to arrive on National Night Out, so there was a block party going right on the street, which gave us a chance to meet all the (very friendly) neighbors. The apartment itself seems much bigger than it actually is because of the good layout and great decor. After that we spent the next couple of days exploring the area, going to Lake Nakomis, the Falls, etc.: the (included) bikes came in handy for that. The kitchen was well stocked in essentials, including a wide range of cooking equipment, which was a big plus. Also, we ended up forgetting a few things when we left, but the owner was great about making sure they got back to us: very responsive and helpful!

"The Liten Hus" hosts a serious "Minnesota Nice" attitude with its fresh, clean Scandinavian design.

The see-through gas fireplace adds warmth via heat and heart during Minneapolis' cooler months. Vaulted ceilings give a spacious, open feel to this unique home created by a designer known for livable, creative solutions featured on HGTV.

It is always about location, isn't it? Immerse yourself into this safe, friendly, quiet South Minneapolis neighborhood with its small town vibe nestled in between Minneapolis' beloved Lake Nokomis & Historic Minnehaha Falls/Park. Super close to Highland Park/St Paul/West River Parkway, Downtown Minneapolis & The Mall of America (MOA).

Close, easy access to Metro Transit & Light Rail -- Blue Line -- which runs from Mall of America to Downtown stopping at locations along the way including Target Field & the new US BANK Stadium. Guests can also access the Green Line, which runs through St. Paul, University of Minnesota & other college campus'.

Near Minneapolis/St Paul International Airport (MSP) and main highway arteries, which makes getting around Minneapolis/St Paul almost effortless.

Lake Nokomis is one of Minneapolis' best city lakes and only a short walk or bicycle ride from the house. Lake Nokomis is a wonderful swimming lake, hosting 2 sandy beaches with life guards in summer months, a popular, casual, locally-owned outdoor restaurant and a place to rent boats, canoes, paddle boards and even bicycles built for an entire family.

Minnehaha Falls/Park is a historic landmark hustling year-round with activities and events. Perched along the Mississippi River, Minnehaha Falls offers breathtaking views, adventurous hiking trails along the Mississippi River and lovely walking paths through splendid gardens. You may not believe you are in the city! This park also hosts a wonderful locally-owned restaurant, Sea Salt, offering excellent sea food using fresh, local ingredients in a fun, casual setting.

Walk to locally-owned restaurants close by with a variety of dining options. Try a delicious hand-crafted breakfast from Berry Sweet Kitchen, happy hour & excellent Italian fare from Al Vento -- or a gluten-free meal from the popular Sassy Spoon. Stop in for a craft brew at Town Hall Brewery, which also hosts a fun, retro bowling alley!

Getting around Minneapolis, St. Paul and the surrounding suburbs could not be easier since "Liten Hus" is located close to major highway arteries. Minneapolis also has an excellent Metro Transit system, which is both clean and safe. Guests may access Metro Transit 1 block from the house, light rail with a direct route to US BANK STADIUM.
