About this listing

I live in a welcoming home in south Minneapolis where you could have a bedroom to yourself. This room shares a bathroom with another BNB rental bedroom. Kitchen/dining/living room are shared with me and any other guests. Close to public transportation, active neighborhood, wifi, outdoor space available. You're welcome to make breakfast using bread and eggs provided. I have a strong preference for fragrance-free (no cologne or perfume.)

The space

Vibrant 100-year old house full of color and art. Built on the site of the former Wonderland Park, an amusement park than operated for six years in the early 1900s. My house is on the site of the dance hall, and the spirit lives on.

Guest access

Guests have access to wifi, shared living space, easy access to public transportation, and 24-hr house access. Clean sheets and towels are provided, as well as drawer/closet space. There is no lock on the bedroom door. Off-street parking *may* be available. Inquire if interested.

Interaction with guests

I live in the house (you downstairs, me upstairs) but have a very active work/social life. I may be around a lot, or maybe close to not at all! I'm available via phone almost always.

Katie's house was great. The location was convenient to a lot of interesting restaurants, and it's close to the greenway so we got to do some biking! The room is exactly as we expected it to be. Cute furnishings in the common spaces We thought noise might be a problem since the house is close to Lake, but it was quiet the whole night.

I enjoyed my stay here. It's a welcoming house. I never saw Katie, but she responded to my messages promptly. Check in and check out was very easy and well-coordinated, and I was able to choose the times I wanted (which was helpful since I arrived in town 5 hours late). The house is very close to a bus stop, and the public transit system in MPLS is excellent, so travelling to and from the house was very simple. Everything in the house was clean, and it's in a nice neighborhood. I felt safe there. Another guest was staying there at the same time, but he was quiet. Towels were provided, and so was WiFi, hand soap, a shelf in the fridge to put my own food, a microwave, a stove, an oven, and dishes. There was a heater and a fan provided in my room (I didn't use them in August when I visited) and central a/c throughout the house. I would love to stay there again in the future.

An old house with a lovely character and friendly / pleasant host. If you prefer modern style, not a place for you but if you want to soak in a bit of history, definitely go there!

Katie was prompt in responding by text. She let me know via text of any maintenance. I never saw her, so if personal contact is important for you this may not be the place for you.

Katie User ProfileKatie is a superhost.

I love traveling, and helping others do so affordably. I like live music, good coffee, and playing games. I also like dancing, whiskey, and enjoying the variety of things this fine city has to offer. I'm as happy camping and hiking as I am sipping martinis in a nice local bar.

Please note- we welcome guests into our home. It's important that we know a little about you. Please take some time to complete your profile.
Minneapolis has so much to offer. I am happy to give recommendations or hang out some, if you'd like. If you'd prefer to wing it on your own, I won't take it personally. This is your trip!
