Steps away from the heart of Destination Medical Center (DMC), this renovated 1919 home has modern amenities, while maintaining its architectural detailing and character.
This 5 bedroom, 4-bath home boasts a kitchen with hardwood floors, custom cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and stone counter tops. Fully furnished and centrally located, this home is ideal for families seeking a comfortable stay in Rochester.
5 blocks from Mayo Clinic, 2 blocks from Saint Mary's Hospital.
My family of my husband and myself, our 5 children (ages 2-12) and my mother rented this house for 5 weeks while my youngest daughter had open heart surgery at St. Mary's. The house was in a safe, well-kept area of town. We enjoyed the walking access to Kutzky Park, the bike path, restaurants as well as the downtown medical buildings. St. Mary's is very close (within view, 3 minute walk) and I was able to stay at the hospital with my daughter but come back to the house to shower and eat easily. The house itself is in great shape. Furnishings are in great condition and a contemporary, clean style. The bathrooms are all remodeled in upscale style and the bedrooms are comfortable and large. The house is charming, with a front porch and kind neighbors. The kitchen is fully equipped and there are plenty of towels and extra quality bedding. The owner and property manager are very kind and responsive. You can not go wrong renting this house. It is a gem and we were sad to say goodbye!
The owners were very accommodating and I was able to keep in contact with them easily with quick responses. A very nice, large home with plenty of room to move. Dishes, utensils, toiletries, etc. available. Updated, nice furnishings. Very close to Mayo Clinic (straight down 1st street and you would literally run right into the Gonda building) and virtually across the street from Mayo Hospital.
Our stay at the "Home on First" in Rochester last week was absolutely perfect. We were there for a planned operation at St. Mary's which was just a short block away. We spent the entire week walking back and forth in the middle of December with no issues what so ever. There is a delicious restaurant named the Canadian Honker, as well as a Caribou Cafe across the street.
The home has four of the bedrooms on the second floor, with a large double sink bathroom where multiple people had ample room to get ready all at the same time. The third story has a large 'master' bedroom as well as another bathroom with shower and closet space.
We purchased food from Hy-Vee (a few blocks North of the home) and was able to make breakfast, lunch and dinner for the family during our stay.
Kitchen and living area on the first floor provide ample space for everyone to cook, eat, or enjoy the Big Screen HD TV in the living room. In the case of needing even more room for sleeping, there is a foldaway bed available on the first floor, with a den like room next to the bathroom and able to be 'closed off' from the rest of the living space.
We certainly could not have found a better place this past weekend for our families to relax, undwind, and lounge while taking care of a family member who had surgery and a week of recovery at St. Mary's. If you're needing to rent more then one hotel room in Rochester, it's a no-brainer to rent this home instead!
We arrived in Rochester without knowing anyone or anything about the city. We found our house exactly as it was advertised. It's beautiful and well-kept. It is easily accessible with entrances to two different streets. Everything was very clean. It is beautifully decorated. The owner and property manager have been amazing and so helpful. The kitchen is stocked with plenty of utensils, dishes and pots and pans. The kitchen is very modern and very pleasant to cook a meal in or just hang out. The bathrooms have nice soaps and shampoos and the showers are awesome. But the best part, we are really in the shadow of St. Mary's and a very short walk to the Mayo Clinic. It's an upscale neighborhood. We have walked during the day and after dark and have always felt very safe. I highly recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a great place that is convenient to the Clinic facilities and hospitals. Or to a family just visiting Rochester. Shopping and restaurants are within walking distance. If given the chance we will definitely be back!
Ideally located close to downtown Rochester's hip 'urban village.' A great location to walk to shops, restaurants, bars, night clubs, and Mayo Clinic appointments. Easy access to grocery stores such as Trader Joe's (2 miles), HyVee Barlow's (0.5 miles), HyVee Crossroads (2 miles), or the new People's Food Co-op (1 mile, open to the public, pfc.coop)!
