Why Norman Kulba chose Central Minneapolis

For a decade 300 Clifton languished looking for an owner. Vines and trees obfuscated the property and grew in broken windows. But after two years of renovation, the Grand Old House is back to looking as it did in its glory days at the turn of the last century.

Now it is accessible to travelers and visitors from around the world, who want a unique experience, not a cookie cutter hotel. The house is designed for big groups and end entertaining, so get your creative juices flowing and organize an English Tea Party themed Bridal shower, or Great Gatsby Reception. Best of all, the elite guests can stay at the mansion, so what normally would be a 4 hour event, becomes an entire weekend to remember.

Intimate Summer Wedding Venue - PERFECT

  • 5 of 5

We reserved the entire 300 Clifton estate for our 30 person wedding, Aug 2018. IT WAS PERFECT. All of our guests stayed with us at the estate for the entire weekend which was really beneficial as most flew in to be there with us. This allowed our guests to take one uber to the estate and once there, no reason to leave for the next 48 hours. Since it was a beautiful weekend, everyone grabbed bfast in the morning and met together on the huge outdoor veranda, we chatted, watched the ducklings and listened to the peaceful sound of the garden fountain. For our wedding dinner Saturday night, we set up one long harvest table out on the veranda which worked great. Cocktail tables in the driveway with butler passed appetizers. Our ceremony was in the front yard garden and was MAGICAL, the garden is well kept and colorful -- what fairy-tales are made of. Norman and John, owners of the house, were extremely accommodating and helped to make our wedding a dream come true. THANK YOU and highly recommend a visit for person stay or your next event!

Beautiful mansion, great accommodatons, super nice hosts.

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 12. We loved being able to hang out together in the common rooms of the house and on the porch overlooking a beautifully landscaped garden. It was very relaxing in the morning having coffee and bagels/drinks in the evening - no curfews. Very safe and fun environment. Bedrooms and bathrooms were very nice. The beds were comfortable- top quality sheets and towels. Great mix of the old and new. John and Norman were very attentive to our needs, checking in/questions about the area, things to do, etc.. Very gracious hosts. Definitely recommend this property if you are looking for an affordable alternative to a hotel.

Great stay during show at convention center

  • 5 of 5

My colleagues and I enjoyed our stay at 300 Clifton. In town for a trade show, we reserved all seven bedrooms in the main house. The house is unique and extremely convenient to the Minneapolis convention center and allowed for a short commute each morning and afternoon. This was especially valuable in light of all the downtown freeway construction. The accommodations were one of a kind and very relaxing. The staff was accessible and helpful if needed. Would definitely consider another stay in the future.

Beautifully Restored Mansion for a Fairy Tale Wedding

  • 5 of 5

We rented out this mansion as the venue for our wedding. With an additional event fee we were able to host 75-80 people comfortably for the event. We chose the mansion partially because of the beautiful furnishings and gardens (we didn't have to decorate much at all). We were also able to bring in our own cake, select our own caterer, and supply our own beer and wine. Huge perks for the wedding planning aspect. Tours were given during the event to occupy our guests during photos. Overall we couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to celebrate our big day. Thank you Norm & John for being such wonderful hosts! We truly enjoyed our weekend with you.
