We had a lovely stay at Rachel's home. She is a thoughtful and efficient hostess. We can't wait to go back in the Spring.
Looking at the listing on this site, I fell for the cozy comfort, and was not disappointed when I saw it in person! Rachel is a great host, and the accommodations were clean, comfortable, and quiet. It was a lovely sanctuary for us to return to during a long weekend of family craziness! I look forward to staying with Rachel again.
This home is very lovely, clean, and comfortable in a quiet neighborhood with a nearby park/walking space. Gave me great access to where I needed to go. Rachel provides pleasant conversation and allows for privacy when needed. Would definitely stay again!
Rachel was very helpful and accommodating from the very first moment I contacted her. My family and I were in Minneapolis for a funeral and she made sure that everything was just right for us. Rachel is interesting and delightful and her home is cozy and comfortable.
Rachel was very welcoming and helpful. She accommodated our changing schedule (because of flight cancellations). The description of her home was accurate. She lives in a charming home and neighborhood. We were able to use her kitchen and frig for our breakfast foods.
A very quiet and clean place to stay at. Good location, not far to Lake Calhoun. Absolutely worth a try if you plan a trip to Minneapolis.
Good communication prior to arrival. Host answered all of our questions and was prompt in returning phone calls and emails.
School social worker.
Love meeting people from all over the world.
