Other things to note
Winters here are spectacular. Parks, skiing, hiking and all things nature are just minutes away.
Spring and summer are Midwest perfect. Warm days, cool nights.
By far, the Minnesota Fall is the best. Leaves turning, the smell of neighborhood fires....crisp mornings and evenings.
No smoking on property premises.
We're pretty flexible about music and sound within reason. Please respect our property and belongings. We are welcoming you into our home. We are not a hotel with full maid service.
If your stay is more than a few days, we will be happy to launder your sheets and towels. We do not offer personal laundering, however. There is a local cleaning service and laundromat at your service.
In case of spills, dirt on carpets, broken things, please let us know so we can remedy the issue or replace the item, or clean the carpet as soon as possible.
I will not accept cash payment. The Airbnb rules don't allow it. Any and all communication through Airbnb, all payments are required through Airbnb.
I'm sorry for your misfortune, but your credit circumstances are not my problem.
Dogs under 50 pounds only please. Bring a pet bed, or kennel, or sleep on the floor. Not on furniture please.
I have a manual/directory in the studio as well for any questions you may have.
Upon your departure, no need to notify me in person. A simple text through Airbnb or via my phone is fine. No need to lock the door either. However, please sign our guestbook and tell me about your experience. AND help us better serve guests with comments or suggestions!
