Simply amazing!

  • 5 of 5

I have traveled through out the United States & Canada staying in VRBO homes. This is by far the nicest accommodations we have ever experienced. It is worth the trip to Minneapolis just to stay in this charming and ultra clean little house. Everything is top drawer all the way. Located in a wonderful little neighborhood, we walked every night and enjoyed the new fire table our porch. Carolyn is one of the most gracious hosts I have every worked with. The Liten Hus is a must stay!

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay at 'The Liten Hus'; in short we cannot wait to come back home again to stay at one of Carolyn's locations. We have had the pleasure now of staying in both locations; they are both amazingly comfortable and very clean. No matter what you are coming to Minneapolis for, staying at 'The Liten Hus' will add to your having a happy and stress free visit. Thank you again Carolyn for making our stay an amazing experiance....See you again soon. Ken and Ann-Marie (Glasgow Scotland, UK)

Cute, fun place to stay if coming to Minneapolis to see the Vikings play! SKOL

  • 5 of 5

Loved the decor and the coziness of the home. It is within walking distance of neighborhood restaurants and a grocery store. Plus, a nice walk to Lake Nokomis. We used Uber to get to the Vikings game, but public transportation is close by and an option.

Close to the airport and Mall of America.

Family visit

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I went to Minneapolis to visit our son and his fiance. This home was perfect. Beautifully decorated with plenty of room. We had them over for a "home cooked" meal which we all enjoyed. We were pleasantly surprised to find the kitchen table had a hidden expansion piece so we could open it for a little more room. The color changing LED lights behind the glass block window were cool, and the fireplace quickly warmed up the sitting area on a cool night. Great weekend and will definitely return!!

Cute little home

  • 5 of 5

Great little home! Clean and comfortable. Kitchen and all the extras in there was really nice! We stayed there with our 2 girls. With the futon and Murphy bed- there was a bed for everyone. Great location to Lake Nokomis and the mall of America. That was very convenient! Would have loved a little more storage in the bedroom- but not a huge deal.
