About owner/property manager

My husband and I build our home in 1993 and had the fortune of raising all four of our children here. It is a beautiful lot with grown tree's and safe neighborhood. We know we should downsize, but can't seem to leave it. We hope to share it with you.

owner/property manager purchased this house in 1993

Why owner/property manager chose Minnetrista

It has the perfect location in that we are thirty minutes from the center of Minneapolis, yet, far enough outside the city to still be in wooded areas on the lake (ah... the peace)! The sun peeks through the tree branches as it rises in the morning and you can hear the sounds of nature while sitting out back.

really nice owners who took care of everything.The house was perfect for our family reunion. It's private and clean and the back deck was really great for everyone to hang out on and talk story. Feel safe to rent here.

Beautiful house, perfect location, wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Jill's place. I was getting married at the MInnetonka Orchards (just around the corner) and so our family based ourselves here for the weekend and we were so glad we did. It was five minutes from the Orchards, 15 minutes from Wayzata where we had some pre-wedding brunch the day before and drinks at the Brewworks the night before. The house is gorgeous and slept our 8 people very comfortably. It is very cosy and the family atmosphere created by all the photos around is lovely. The four bathrooms really helped when we were getting ready. Communication from Jill was exemplary and she really went above and beyond - even printing out our ceremony readings before we arrived there, just a phenomenal host. Many many thanks, we really appreciated it. Additionally, they donate 5% of your rental cost to charity and seeing where I worked, they donated to that charity instead of their usual choice which is just so thoughtful and generally fabulous. Many many thanks again.

Nice house near the lake

  • 4 of 5

Great house and location for our needs at thanksgiving. The owner was kind enough to make sure we had breakfast foods our first morning, as we got in late. Enjoyed time in the hot tub as a family. Had some wonderful runs around the lakes as the neighborhoods are connected.

One note-you are staying in someone's home. This was new for us as usually rentals are strictly rentals and not lived in on a daily basis. It wasn't a problem but was different for us!

Overall was a great house in a beautiful neighborhood.

Best weekend ever!

This house was phenomenal! Jill and her husband were beyond welcoming, so accommodating and everything was perfect. The house has plenty of room, a beautiful out door space and so many useful amenities. I definitely will be trying to rent again next summer:)
