Enjoy a 2 bedroom suite --private entrance, kitchen, living room, 2 bedrooms, and laundry/bathroom. Plenty of room to park your boat as you scope out a lake for day trips. Beautiful downtown Bemidji is 4 miles down the road and Walker and Park Rapids are about 40, all of which have lovely shops and restaurants. We have two cats, a dog, and free-range chickens. May not be appropriate for severely allergic guests, or if you don't like country living.

NOTE: This apartment is chemical free.

The space
We are on the edge of town yet in the country, one mile from Lake Bemidji and bike trails, four miles from downtown. Hosts live on site but in separate unit, when home they're available for questions/problems that may arise. Plenty of room to park car or boat. Private outdoor space with grill and seating area, space for yard games.

We have chosen to clean this space using chemical-free cleaners, and we supply chemical-free shampoos and body care items for guests to share. Laundry detergent is also chemical-free. As this is a new amenity, please let us know if you encounter any chemical items in our apartment that we may have missed. Thank you!

Note: We have a teenage boy who occasionally plays games online with his friends in his bedroom above the apartment. Most people don't hear him or mind him, and we ask him to quiet down when we have guests, which he does. If you sleep extremely lightly, or you have babies who need absolute quiet, we may not be appropriate for you, between him, the chickens/roosters, and our dog.

Where you’ll be

Bemidji, Minnesota, United States

It's beautiful. Neighbors aren't close by, and are separated from us by our huge garden fence. Bemidji is a lovely town-- we highly recommend Tutto Bene for incredibly well done Italian food (like seriously over the top good), and Bemidji Brewery for awesome local brew (also has great food-- the pizzas are wonderful)! Brigids Pub is a really fun Irish Pub with good food, and the 209 makes the best burger in town :) Also the hotdog place, Lucky Dogs, and the ice cream parlor, Big River Scoop are both awesome!

My husband Phil and I are superhosts from Bemidji MN, and we love staying in other Airbnb’s when we travel. Our kids are mostly grown, we only have one teenager left at home, so we’ve been doing a little more travel together. Besides Airbnb, I am a writer and I teach English at our local university and Phil is the director of a student group. We look forward to exploring and experiencing your area!
