The Space

Guests will enjoy a private room with a queen bed and a shared bathroom. While we provide breakfast bars and tea and coffee choices, Maria's Cafe and the Franklin Street Bakery are right around the corner if you are looking for something to start your day off strong. In the summer, our home has AC units in the bedrooms and there is a fan in the guest room and north-facing windows. In the winter, the house is radiator-heated and we are glad to provide a heating blanket to those who would like one. We have free parking on the street and a drive way with plenty of spots. We have coin laundry for guests to use if needed.

For the comfort of our guests, the queen mattress has a 100% hypoallergenic, waterproof mattress protector cover.

Guest Access

Guests will have access to bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, sun porch, laundry room, dining room, living room, wifi, and free parking on the street in front of our house, on the side of the house, and in the driveway behind the house..

Interaction with Guests

We are two working, full-time grad students with a little daughter, so our life is pretty flexible and fast-paced. We are glad to help point out tourist attractions and give directions but other than that we'll leave you to yourself to explore the cities.

The Neighborhood

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 just over a mile from the Minneapolis Convention Center and favorites such as Global Market and the Midtown Greenway. Lake Calhoun, 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, Matt's Bar (for the Juicy Lucy burger) or Fogo de Chao for a fancy dinner are just a short drive away.

A note about our urban 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 people traveling through the neighborhood on a daily basis. 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. There is something special about looking out over the city's skyline from our front porch. 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.

Getting Around

Public transit, whether bus or metro, is nearby along with NiceRide stations. We provide guests with the option to purchase $5.00 bus/metro passes at our house which can be easily reloaded online, saving you the hassle of having to carry exact change for the bus fares. We also provide guests who prefer to bike with free bike access (and helmet access) along as the weather is reasonable.

Other Things to Note

This place is a perfect stay for those here for a conference, job interview, or on a business or sight-seeing trip to the cities.
