Amazing amenities, even morning granola and coffee. It was overall outstanding hospitality, quick response, and a very comfortable home. Also many thoughtful touches thrown in, and they even let me use their washer and dryer. I stayed for a week or so, and I enjoyed it a lot.

This place is comfortable, cozy and well appointed for a bargain price. The host couple were gracious and happy to share info about places to go nearby. The homemade granola in the room and a private mini fridge (along with the friendly cat) were unexpected bonuses. I will be back for sure!

Sosan’s place is quite a hidden gem. My husband and I had no issues finding local and close by restaurants and shopping. The amazing part was discovering how easy it was to drive back and forth to and from the Twin Cities. Our hosts added thoughtful touches to our room; such as, a space heater(for added heat), games, coffee, tea, coffee and tea makers, filtered water, granola, Kleenex, extra towels and blankets. The hosts are laid back and easily accessible. Overall the room is clean, comfortable, and private. The bathroom is very nice and clean as well.

Sosan User Profile

I am a former Peace Corps volunteer who enjoys the outdoors, big cities and good food. I have been married for 29 years to a wonderful guy and we have an 18 year old son who is at Brown University in Providence, RI. We're a close family and we love to travel together, meet new people, and experience the food, music and art of places we visit.

We are self-directed travelers and love to explore on our own. We appreciate the simple things in life and are not fussy. It’s hard to think of things we can’t live without. I would say, it would be hard to live without the love of friends and family. My husband says it would be hard without a means of expressing himself. Our son says he can’t live without music.

A life motto for me would be, "Practice kindness."
