About the property

"The Cottage" is located in a treasured MPLS neighborhood close to Lake Nokomis.

This delightful Nordic Nook is ADA-compliant and hosts one-level living, which makes it convenient for everyone -- including those with physical limitations.

"The Cottage" -- is new construction and presents a serious Scandinavian-Minnesota attitude with its fresh, clean, contemporary design.

No steps creates a perfect option for guests with physical limitations. Walk to stores, Metro Transit, restaurants and more.

"The Cottage" is conveniently located in one of Minneapolis' most treasured residential neighborhoods nestled away on a quiet street near the heart of the city, beloved Lake Nokomis, historic Minnehaha Falls & the mighty Mississippi.

Close to Minneapolis/St Paul International Airport, MOA, The Light Rail (Blue Line - Downtown, Target Field & US Bank Stadium), Lake Nokomis and Minnehaha Falls. Walking distance to grocery, bakeries, shops, library and fabulous locally-owned restaurants. Biking & walking trails are literally out the door connecting to the best Minneapolis/St Paul offers. 2 bicycles are available for guest use. Hasn't it always been about location? And this is quite simply -- THE BEST!

"The Cottage" hosts vaulted ceilings and skylights, which flood the indoor with natural light while providing an open and spacious feel. Thoughtful design and attention to every detail provide guests a "home away from home" experience with a caring touch.

"The Cottage" hosts a private entry, covered porch and large flagstone patio, which extends the living space -- outdoor. Perennial gardens, vegetables & herbs surround "The Cottage" adding charm & character to this special Nordic-inspired nook. A "Honey Crisp" apple tree (developed by the University of Minnesota) promises soon to produce delicious apples for guests to enjoy in the fall. The large outdoor living space provides guests a place to relax, BBQ and enjoy Minneapolis' weather most the year. A charcoal-fueled grill is provided for guest use.

A queen wall bed hosts a high-quality mattress for a comfortable night sleep, which easily folds away during the day. A plush, comfortable sleeper sofa provides additional space for guests to slumber. A privacy screen separates the 2 areas, if desired. Quality linens, pillows and bed covers are furnished.

A large full-size bathroom hosts a semi-circular glass shower with excellent water pressure, heat lamps, plenty of storage and washer & dryer. The bathroom is supplied with quality towels, shampoo, conditioner, body soap and laundry detergent.

The main living area has plenty of space to relax, watch television or entertain friends and family. A large, "smart television" offers many options including cable television and free Netflix.

"The Cottage" presents a fully equipped and functional kitchen w/ range, refrigerator/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, pantry and plenty of cabinet space resulting in a kitchen that really cooks! The dining table accommodates 4 and a multi-functional desk in the front entry provides additional dining space for visitors. It may also be used as a bed table for reading/computer -- or if you are lucky maybe breakfast in bed?

Large, mirrored closets emphasize the space while providing plenty of storage for guest's personal belongings. An iron and ironing board are available for guest use.

Guests have access to one garage stall with electric opener and outdoor parking next to "The Cottage". Additional on-street parking is also available.

Did you know? "The Cottage" will soon be featured on HGTV.

"The Cottage" is Minneapolis' 5-star Scandinavian-Minnesotan accommodation with guests saying it all. Velkommen! Welcome!

Lovely and comfortable getaway

  • 5 of 5

I booked this for my sister who was visiting for two nights. We both loved the cottage. It's spotless, beautifully decorated and yet at the same time completely comfortable. One could be happy spending their all their time in the cottage...it's so lovely and relaxing. It's also close to many great shops and restaurants to which you can walk or bike. In fact, this is a great area to reach the rest of the city by bike. I'd definitely book this again for any out of town guests in the future.

Cozy & contemporary

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very cozy place to stay with a contemporary design. It is in a nice, very quiet neighborhood just a few blocks from some great restaurants and bike paths. It didn't seem like we were in Minneapolis! We enjoyed going to nearby Minnehaha Falls. The owner is so easy to work with & takes care of all the details so you can just come and relax. You can even park in a garage, borrow some bikes, etc. No comparison to staying in a hotel! Perfect for a relaxing weekend getaway! We will be back!

Amazing cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely perfect! Beautifully appointed, clean, convenient location, a perfect little gem in the city. Carolyn has thought of everything. The patio is wonderful and there are tomatoes and herbs in the little garden. The landscaping is beautiful as well. Prior reviews have hit on all the things that are done right in this cottage and I agree with all of them. Thank you for everything!

Minneapolis' Best Location! "This Adorable Cottage Is Tucked away in a Quiet, Safe Neighborhood Caressed by Our Treasured (and Recently Voted "Best") City Lake, Lake Nokomis & Historical Minnehaha Falls/park at the "Mighty Mississippi River". The Location Is Also Convenient to Highland Park/St Paul via Ford Parkway.

Close (but Not Too Close) to Minneapolis International Airport (Msp), Mall of America (Moa), Ikea, Metro Transit Light Rail, Downtown, Minnesota Twins Stadium, the New Vikings Stadium, Target Center, the Convention Center, the Veterans Home and So Much More. This Excellent Location Makes It Extremely Easy to Get Around Minneapolis/St Paul and all It Has to Offer. The Excellent Metro Transit System Makes It Possible to Reside at the Cottage Without Renting a Car.

Many Festivals and Events Are Held Along Minnehaha Parkway, at Minnehaha Falls/park, Lake Nokomis, Highland Park/St Paul and Along the Mississippi River. There Are Too Many Events to List but Chances Are the One You Plan Attending Is near by.

You're Sure to Feel the Energy with So Much Activity Around. Walk Or Bicycle to Lake Nokomis, Minnehaha Falls Or West River Parkway. Hike Along the Mississippi River -- You Will Not Believe You Are So Close to the Heart of the City! Rent Boats, Canoes, Paddle Boards Bicycles and Other Fun Warm Weather Equipment. "Nice Ride" Bicycle Kiosks Are Located Various Places Close by and There Are 2 Bicycles Guests Can Use for Free at the Cottage.

When the Season Changes? We Know Where We Live. By Embracing the Cold Season We Take Advantage of Different Activities Like Skiing, Snow Shoeing, Skating, Sledding and Attend Many Winter Festivities Certain to Warm Any Heart. For Example, the City of Lake Loppet Ski Festival Or the International Pond Hockey Tournament at Lake Nokomis.

If Shopping Is Something You Love the Mall of America and Ikea Are Only Minutes Away. Did You Know Minnesota Does Not Tax Anything You Wear? This Makes Buying Clothes Economical -- and Even More Fun! Southdale, the Galleria at Edina and Many Outlet Shopping Centers Are Easily Accessible for Those Who Want to "Shop 'Til They Drop!"

Minneapolis Has Fantastic Grocery Stores! Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Lunds/byerlys, Kowalskis and Cub to Name a Few. Our Locally-owned Neighborhood Grocer, Oxendale's, Is a Neighborhood Favorite and Short Walk from the Cottage. Wonderful Farmer's Markets Offer Seasonal and Locally Grown Produce and the Owner Provides Personal Suggestions Where to Purchase Items Like Meat and Seafood.

One of the City's Best Catering Restaurants Is Just One Block from the House and Many Other Outstanding Locally-owned Restaurants Are Within Walking Distance.

It Is Easy to Go on and on About This Fabulous Location. Be Our Guest and See for Yourself! We Look Forward Hosting You.
