Interaction with Guests
We respect your privacy, but will be available to help you in any way needed. We do live in the house, too, but your space is private.
We love the tree lined streets of our neighborhood, the gardens, the cafe's, coffee shops, parks and great neighbors. We're in the heart of the city with all it has to offer, close to the Minneapolis Convention Center, or we can be in the suburbs (think Mall of America) within 20 minutes or less. There is a YMCA four blocks from the house.
You can catch a city bus at the end of our block and go anywhere. The bus will also take you to the light rail station, which is about 10 minutes from our house.
Other Things to Note
Lynn, a certified life coach who holds an (website hidden) Human development does Life Purpose Sessions, Horse Guided Coaching sessions and tarot readings. You can opt to do one for yourself if you wish while visiting (at an extra cost.)
We have a small, quiet, non-shedding dog who stays in our part of the house.
We're smoke free and ask that you be fairly quiet after 11 p.m.
Bill and Lynn were there to greet us and give us a quick tour of the place. The apartment was very nice, clean and homey - exactly as described in the listing. There were some great places to check out in the immediate neighborhood and plenty of things which were only a short drive away. A great location!
This is a great upstairs one bedroom apt with bathroom in hall. Nicely laid out, with kitchen and dining areas. Plenty of privacy, lots of space, fabulously sunlit. Lynn and Bill were lovely...friendly, available but doing their own thing.
The neighborhood is quiet,safe ...kids playing in their front yards.
You are just a mile from beautiful lake Calhoun.
We will definitely be returning.
Such a great experience with Lynn and Bill! Beautiful and clean place with so many personal touches that made us feel welcome. What a relaxing and stress free time we had!
Bed was so comfortable and the kitchen was perfect for what we needed and fully stocked. Shower and bath were clean and lovely- great fluffy towels. Would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a place in this area.
Lynn and Bill's place was great. It was its own little apartment on the upper floor of their house with a dining area, kitchen and stove, as well as bedroom with a tv and Netflix/Hulu access. They were very warm and welcoming when we ran into them and had a cute little dog named lucky. The area is great! Lots of walkable restaurants and interesting spots, people are nice and parking is easy! I would not hesitate to come back here on future trips to Minneapolis!
This was my first time using airbnb and it was a wonderful experience. The apartment has tons of natural light and has a very relaxing atmosphere. The kitchen was fully equipped which allowed me to cook my own meals. As a consultant that is 100% travel this was a great break from the sterile hotel rooms I stay at during the week. Use of the washer/dryer was also greatly appreciated.
I felt very snug and welcome right away. The apartment is lovely -- cheerful, neat, and there were some goodies in the fridge. I slept very well on a comfortable bed. The neighborhood has cute little cafes, is on the bus route for downtown and to the airport so I did not need to rent a car. I walked a lot and the neighborhood was friendly and safe.
I did not see Lynn and Bill very much but when I did they were very welcoming and kind.
Highly recommended. I will stay there next time in Minneapolis if possible.
