Description

The space

The space is unique because of its location. In the heart of the city, yet quite. Close to downtown, museums, restaurants, bars, shopping, and coffee shops. About 20 min from the airport depending on traffic. If you are up for an adventure the lakes are 2 blocks away where you can rent paddle boards, canoes, and bikes. Public transportation a few blocks away. The home is very old and quirky. The bathroom is very functional but unique. Overhead lighting was not a thing when the home was built, so lamps are available, and feel free to move them around from room to room.

Guest access

The entire 3rd floor- private entrance on the side of the house. Guests have access to the basement for laundry.

Interaction with guests

I am always available via text / call for emergencies or if you need something that is not provided.

The neighbourhood

East lake of the Isles is a quite neighborhood close to the lakes, coffee shops, bars and restaurants. Highly walk-able and close to public transportation.

Getting around

Public transportation maps provided in the unit.

Other things to note

A dog lives in the house on the first floor with the owners.

Our stay here was wonderful. Easy check-in/out process. The place was well prepared and adorable. It was unfortunately rainy and chilly during our stay... The place is a bit drafty, so be sure to pack warm if your stay is during a chillier month. Overall wonderful stay, I'd absolutely book it again!

Great location. Check in and communication with the host were easy. As noted, this place is on the third floor of a converted old mansion, so the layout is a little weird, but I didn't mind. Good value.

What a great spot to stay! I loved the proximity to the lake (I ran around it three times), I loved the house (old, 1898) and the fact that we were located on the third floor, and I loved the proximity to restaurants, downtown and buses to other neighborhoods. The neighborhood it self was great for walking around, including Mt. Curve, which has a number of historic homes.....Awesome place....

My husband and I are young working corporate professionals who love to travel and explore our Minneapolis neighborhood. We are primarily hosts on Airbnb, but also love to travel.

The private 3rd level of our home is a one bedroom suite, so we open it to guests.

Our house has 3 floors- the first we live on, the second we rent out, and the 3rd unit we share with guests.

Let me know if you need Minneapolis advise on where to eat, what to do, and what to see while you are here. Minneapolis has a wide variety of concerts, Arts, museums, micro breweries, eat street, lakes, and festivals.
