About this listing

Urban cottage sanctuary in S. Mpls. Private 1 floor, 2bdrm. Clean, bright and our price doesn't fluctuate. Beautiful yards. 1 block to Powderhorn Prk & Mayday Café. Matt's Bar plus many restaurants within walking. Bus stop on corner. Easy parking. Hosts next door. Convenient. Lovely.

The space

This is the main floor of a cottage home. Nobody lives upstairs. The smaller bedroom has a full size bed, dressers and closet. The larger bedroom has a queen size bed, dresser, couch, chairs and clothes rack. Bright living room with comfy couch and flat screen T.V./DVD/Roku. Dining table that expands if you want to host a meal. Full kitchen, plus us next door, has all you need to cook. Bathroom has tub/shower. 3 season back porch has couch, table and chairs for hanging out. No photos will do our yards justice. Lush and beautiful with both sunny and shady sitting areas.

Guest access

Please enjoy all the yard space and entertain at will. Grill available for use. Back porch is all yours for mosquito free evenings.

Interaction with guests

We're wide open. We will be gardening in the yard and watering during growing season as well as shoveling in winter. You will see us. We have an outdoor fireplace and you are welcome to join us in the Hut. Feel free to wander over.

Other things to note

We do not wholly exclude PETS, but considering our yards we would like to chat with you about that ahead of time. Dogs do not have free roam and will need to be on a leash and supervised in the yards during the three season grow period. Sorry. However, the park a block away is full of walkers of all species. For WINTER guests, we live on a snow-emergency route which means we are plowed first and often. Parking around the corner, only during the snow emergencies, is still close and you walk in the back way. We are always on top of snow blowing and snow emergency info.

This truly is a "sweet spot" in a great central neighborhood with a livable Minneapolis vibe. Very clean and comfortable, large bedroom (and a second bedroom too), well equipped kitchen and nice back sun room and yard to relax in. On a seemingly busy street yet quiet and calm area. One block to great coffee shop and 2 to one of my favorite local parks. Renee and Mavis were friendly when I got the chance to chat with them and have put together a comfortable home away from home airbnb experience. I'd definitely rent again the next time I return to Mpls.

Great place to stay. Close to downtown, uptown and great local eats. Renee is an amazing communicator with a kind heart. She will be your main contact for the stay. She's knowledgeable about the area.

My daughter and I stayed at The Sweet Spot when we were in town for a baby shower. It had everything that we needed and it's in a great central location. Tom, Mavis and Renée made check-in and check-out easy and were available to help, if needed (we didn't need anything).

We live next door to the cottage we are renting out. We are three here, myself, Mavis and Renee. We are easy, artistic folks that enjoy our yards and good company. We would love to show you how beautiful city living can be.
