Summer guests, please note that I turn on the central air if it's over 75 and humid. I'm not one to keep my house cold!
I am a great host; I love people! I sometimes bake some special goodies such as banana bread or scones for breakfast, when I'm not working on a deadline for my theatre or design work.

Judy was a delight and her home satisfied my needs to a tee. I am grateful to find this place to stay -- it accommodates my 1-night trips to Minneapolis. I especially enjoyed talking with Judy over a great breakfast bread that she made, along with coffee. Her very social kitty was a treat. The bedroom and bed were very comfortable. Thank you, Judy!
Judy was super amazing! I had no trouble finding her place, everything was exactly as described. Her cat Diego was also very charming and very friendly. Judy has a beautiful home and the area was wonderful. Judy was always available for anything I may need and also provided coffee and baked goods every morning. I felt very taken care of and Judy is just the sweetest. I highly recommend her place for your next Minnesotan trip!
Judy was fascinating to talk to. She made me feel like part of the family. She really knows how to host, and gives you enough freedom to enjoy the city with your other friends. I slept like a rock! I also bonded with her wonderfully friendly cat Diego. He r son is very polite and is ahard worker. Overall,an inspiring experience.
