Hey there! Gwen and I just graduated from St. Olaf College and moved to Minneapolis. We live in a cozy apartment with a stunning skyline view. We have a small guest bedroom with a comfy bed. Come stay with us and we'll make you feel at home, away from home :)

The space

Our apartment building is up there among some of the oldest buildings in the area. That means it has lots of character! We are in the process of giving our home a face lift and so far we are happy with the progress. Overall, the apartment has wood floors, wood moulding, a very open layout, and lots of natural lighting which are all aspects we fell in love with! Your room is a small room with a comfy twin sized bed, your own AC unit, and a beautiful skyline view. Hope you feel comfortable here :)

Guest access

Full access to our kitchen, dining room, living room, bathroom, and your own room. Feel free to use any of the amenities in those areas! Also, there is a washer and dryer in a different area of the building you can use - $1.50 per cycle. We want you to feel like our space is your space :)

We have a spare key for you to use so you may come and go as you please! If you lose the key we will require that you pay for our locks to be changed.

Caution: It is a second floor apartment and the steps are a bit steep.

Interaction with guests

Gwen and I both love meeting new people! We enjoy getting to know our guests, but are also happy to give you space if you prefer.

Other things to note

We have a 1 year old cat, Freyja. And a new, 11 week old kitten, Athena. They are bothvery friendly and have a lot of energy! Must be comfortable around cats.

New addition! A Ball Python named Loki. If you are uncomfortable with snakes, it's not a problem. Ball Pythons are nocturnal so he spends most of his time hidden. If you are interested in seeing/holding him just ask one of us and we are happy to take him out. He's very shy, but friendly.

I enjoyed staying at Emma's and Gwen's place--I liked the location near downtown Minneapolis--the neighborhood felt safe and fairly well-lit any time I was out after dark. The room is accurately represented in the listing information--I didn't get to meet either of the ladies but was kept company by their extremely playful and sweet kitties, Freyja and Athena (perfect for this cat lady!) Instructions regarding check-in were extremely helpful. Overall I enjoyed my stay and would definitely consider returning to this place, I felt right at home.

Emma and Gwen are both fantastic hosts and I would highly recommend staying at their place when visiting Minneapolis! Their place is very charming and loaded with historic Midwest character; along with being in walking distance to downtown and the North Loop district of Minneapolis. I will definitely stay with them again the next time I'm visiting the area!

I honestly couldn't thank Gwen enough for her outstanding hospitality. The house felt a second home and if you get to meet Athena I'm 100% sure you'll fall in love with her.
