Looking for a get-away? This third-floor, cedar-plank, A-frame studio with its own private porch offers a woodys feel downtown. Just blocks from the Blue Line Metro, it has all of the downtown/airport accessibility and easy transfers to the Green Line Metro to St. Paul and the University of Minnesota. This studio has its own loft, two queen beds, a full bath, and kitchenette with fridge, sink, microwave, an air purifier, high-speed wireless internet and ample work space.

The space
Our space has two queen beds and wide-open common space with a couch, sitting area, table and chairs, and a kitchenette. For breakfast, the Pow-Wow Cafe is right around the corner and the fabulous Maria's Cafe is right down the street. The space also has a fridge, sink, microwave, hot pot, and panini maker (note: there is no stove/oven). In the summer, the unit has central AC. In the winter, the unit has its own forced air; guests control the thermostat. We are glad to provide a heating blanket to those who would like one.

The property has free parking available on the street, but, please note: there is no reserved parking spots on the property.

Where you’ll be

Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States

There is plenty to do in the Minneapolis metro area, and our place is just .75 miles from downtown, including the Viking's Stadium, Gold Medal Park, and the Guthrie Theatre. We are 1.2 miles from the Minneapolis Convention Center and favorites such as Global Market and the Midtown Greenway. Lake Bde Ma Ska, Lake of the Isles, Lake Harriet, and Minnehaha Falls are just five miles away to the southwest and southeast of us. If you are coming to the cities for a gastronomic adventure, Hell's Kitchen or Matt's Bar (for the Juicy Lucy burger) are just a short drive away, and Maria's, a local Columbian restaurant, with the best corn pancakes, is just around the corner.

A note about our urban, ethnic neighborhood: we do live in the city center which means that our neighborhood is busy and very varied: our home is near bus lines, public spaces like parks, coffee shops, non-profit offices, other large old Victorian homes, government buildings, apartment complexes, health clinics, and the many different types of people traveling through the neighborhood on a daily basis. Urban city life is densely populated, so you will want to exercise city-smarts and common sense when traveling out late at night from our place. If that makes you uncomfortable, you might prefer to stay in one of the quieter neighborhoods outside the city center like Nokomis or Eden Prairie, White Bear, St. Louis Park, Plymouth, or Longfellow.

We, however, love the energy of the city of Minneapolis. One of our favorite pluses of living in Minneapolis's city center in the Ventura Village neighborhood is the fact that we enjoy a huge diversity of neighbors from all parts of the world and with it the customs, the dress, the food, and vivacity that they all bring to Minneapolis.

Zach and Betsy are a fun-loving, geeky couple trying to fit all of life into twenty-four hours every day. This Bay-area Californian and small-town Wisconsinite are relatively new to the Twin Cities but are loving the exploration that a new city (or two cities) brings. They are still learning to bike when the weather is sub-freezing, but they love these gorgeous summer months. They love travel and ethnic cultures and have loved making a home in one of the most ethnically-diverse neighborhoods in the U.S. They spend what spare time they can find working to restore ever more of their house to its former glory.

During your stay

We are working, full-time grad students with young daughters, so our life is full and fast-paced. We live in the apartment below the Airbnb space, so we are glad to recommend tourist attractions and troubleshoot. But to keep everyone safe, we'll leave you to yourself to rest, and work, and explore the cities.
