Enjoy a private kitchen,dining area and reading corner in our inviting second-floor space! Near downtown, Uptown, parks and lakes. Many fun restaurants and coffee shops are within walking distance. Easy access to city transit. See detailed description for accurate understanding of how the space is laid out.

The space

This charming updated space falls between the cracks as to how to list it in Airbnb. It's way more than a private room. It's a small apartment. However, you enter it via a hallway through our home but not through the area Bill and I spend most of our time in. Your apartment used to be part of a full upper duplex. When we got married (several years ago now) we expanded our living space to include part of the upstairs. However, we had this sunny kitchen, bedroom and dining area overlooking the back yard that was perfect for welcoming guests.

The bedroom has a very comfy queen size pillow top bed. A flat screen TV gives you access to Netflix, Hulu Plus and other good viewing. Enjoy the full kitchen and dining area and you can read in the little sitting area by the kitchen. The bathroom has a tub and shower, clean towels and washcloths, amenities, and shelves for your toiletries. The bath is in the hall and is 99% yours as we have a bath in our first floor living space that we use for all our needs except occasionally we use it in the middle of the night. (Our bedroom is at the east end of the 2nd floor, the apartment is at the west end, and the bathroom right next to entrance to the apartment.) The backyard is available for your use as well. Just keep the gates closed so our dog, Lucky, doesn't get out.

Guest access

Along with your full private kitchen, you have access to wireless internet, Netflix, Hulu Plus, shared washer/dryer and outdoor space. There is fruit, juice, bagels or English muffins, tea, coffee and a coffee maker for your enjoyment.

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 spend most of our time, except for sleeping in our second floor bedroom, in other parts of the house.

Other things to note

Lynn, a certified life coach who holds an 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.

Lynn and Bill's upper floor is a cozy home away from home. They've thought of everything to make their guests comfortable and welcome. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

I’ve been traveling to MN on and off for the last year for work and wish I knew about Lynn and Bill’s place since day one! I arrived late, and they were super accommodating with my late arrival. I was in town for a very stressful class, and Lynn and Bill were great about respecting my space and privacy. I’m a solo woman traveler so safety is my number one priority and their place is awesome. The neighborhood is cute, and I felt very secure. The fridge was stocked with snacks and the bed was sooo comfortable. Such a cozy, warm place! You won’t be disappointed staying here.

The "apartment" was clean and bright. There were some breakfast things in the refrigerator. We felt comfortable at the house. Our area gave us privacy within the hosts' home.

Lynn and Bill's home is by far the best air b&b we have stayed in. Very accommodating and comfortable. We arrived to the apartment welcomed by chocolates and flowers. It was very quiet and private. We were close to lots of neat coffee shops and eateries in uptown as well as beautiful lake Calhoun. We will definitely stay there again next time we visit MN! Thanks again Lynn and Bill!

Without a doubt Bill and Lynn represent what Airbnb is all about. They are exceptional hosts and their place is wonderfully cozy and beyond charming. The location is great for those who want to explore Minneapolis and the surrounding areas while having a nice place to come back to. Bill and Lynn make it exceptionally easy to stay at their place and their commitment to genuine hospitality is outstanding. They are great people and a great pleasure to stay with. I highly recommend staying with them no matter your level of experience with Airbnb.

Communication and Check-in were excellent. Clean unit! Great location and neighborhood. If traveling during summer, note there is no AC in the Airbnb unit. But they are overall great host.

Response from Lynn And Bill:
So sorry, Errol. We had just taken the air conditioner out of the unit because we had unusually cool temps in the 40 - 60's for the previous two weeks and thought fall had come early. We could have put it in again for you, but of course you didn't know that was an option! To others who are reading this, and to you, too, Errol, if you are expecting something that isn't there or need something from us, please don't hesitate to ask us or any other host you are staying with. We are committed to accuracy and to your comfort.

We love life, people, and traveling, especially using AirBNB to see neighborhoods and homes we would never see otherwise. And the people we meet that way are great. New Mexico is one of our favorite places to visit and explore. Lynn is a life coach who brings the beauty, power, freedom and spirit of the horse into the coaching process to help her clients make life choices that bring joy and fulfillment. She works with people from all over the world. One of her favorite things is doing equine guided retreats in Tucson, AZ every winter for spirited midlife (and older) women. Bill is a craftsman/handyman who has his own business making people's homes beautiful and more livable. Acting is a love of his and you will often find him in a production in the Minneapolis area.
