Close and convenient, located on the NE edge of downtown Minneapolis. Walk, bike, Lyft, Uber, cab or bus to dining, breweries, theater, museums, music, movies, nightlife, college and pro sports venues. A comfortable home in a quiet, old-fashioned neighborhood, nestled on Nicollet Island, the only inhabited island on the Mississippi River. Free parking for 2 cars.

The space
ALL are welcome. The house is spacious and comfortable, clean and neat. I am low-key and not ruffled by much. The neighborhood is old-fashioned but VERY close to the city center; quite unusual.

I'm a Minneapolis native who lucked into the opportunity of a lifetime... and I built a home on Nicollet Island. In 20 years, I've hosted musicians, artists, student exchange chaperones, international students and many AirBnB guests. With Airbnb, I can share my good fortune and unique neighborhood by opening up my home to travelers. I work as a Labor Relations professional in the state system of colleges and universities. I love gardening, reading detective series, hanging with my pets and watching sports. Coming home from work every day is like "going to the cabin." I like to spend time each year on the east coast of central Florida, hanging out with old friends. But I am a homebody at heart, who loves visitors. As a host, I can give you the key and leave you alone. OR I can show you around the neighborhood and suggest places to go and things to see. The Airbnb hosting experience has given me a greater appreciation and enjoyment of my unique setting. See you soon!
