We spent the weekend in Minneapolis with our 18-month-old, and we were so thankful for the great location of Ruth and Frank's place. We walked to the light rail and rode it Target Field. We drove to a couple of great recreational sites close by with awesome playgrounds and trails and loved our lunch at Minnehaha. The house meet our needs perfectly - it was nice to come home at the end of a long day exploring and eat take out (Parkway Pizza and Matt's Bar!) at the table instead of trying to convince a toddler to stay in a high chair for another meal. Highly recommend walking to Baker's Wife and feeling like a local. Ruth and Frank answered lots of questions before we arrived and accommodated our young family.

We stayed two nights at Ruth and Frank's lovely urban cabin and are very happy with our experience. The urban cabin comfortably fit all three of us (adults) in two bedrooms plus a comfy living room sofa bed. Their home is also very clean and comfortably furnished with everything we could want for our stay. Ruth and Frank were quick and gracious in their communication with us, being incredibly helpful in answering all of our pre-trip questions. We were delighted to discover upon booking that Ruth and Frank have a fully functional upright piano in their home. The three of us are professional musicians and travel together as a piano trio. It was wonderful to be able to rehearse and warm-up together in our accommodations before we traveled downtown for our concert. We didn't know Ruth and Frank prior to booking our stay, but we felt very welcome during our entire stay. Big Bonus: their neighborhood is beautiful, quiet and serene. It is also close to public transit. We were surprised at how easy it was to take the bus from the home around town. We also enjoyed the brief scenic walk (~12min) from the urban cabin to the metro blue line, which swiftly took us to the city center and to many notable sites (Minnehaha Falls, Mall of America, etc). We look forward to booking with Ruth and Frank again on our next visit and wholeheartedly recommend their wonderful accommodations.

My husband and I and our 3 children stayed here for 5 nights while we were visiting friends and family in Minneapolis and were very pleased! The house was comfortable, clean and conveniently located near the airport. We ended up putting the children in the 2 bedrooms and my husband and I shared the pullout sofa bed which was surprisingly comfortable (if it hasn't been, we would have commandeered a bedroom). Ruth and Frank were very helpful hosts and the info they left about the house and city was thorough and useful. I would definitely recommend staying here!

Ruth and Frank's Urban Cabin was a very clean & comfortable place to stay. We have two young children, and we enjoyed the close proximity to the park & playground. The house was also set up nicely for children, and it had swings and a slide in the back yard that kept our toddler busy. The location was also close to downtown Minneapolis by car (there is also a light rail very close by with direct access to downtown). We hope to stay at the Urban Cabin on future trips to Minnesota.

We had a great stay at the Urban Cabin. We really appreciated the location of the house – it was so easy to get to all of our destinations. I also really loved the fact that there was an empty dresser into which we could unpack. Very comfortable place, we would definitely stay there again!
