The Space

My home was built in 1914, gorgeous character while being updated from top to bottom. This is my home and I rent out a room or rooms to guests as an alternative to staying in a hotel.

I am just minutes from Uptown and Downtown and right on the bus route. If you have a car; there is plenty of off-street parking. The commute to Uptown and Downtown is approximately 5-10 minute (by car). $8 average cab ride to both Uptown and Downtown. Approximately $20 cab ride from the airport.

Third bedroom of home on the 2nd level is occasionally available. The room features high thread count sheets, plush pillows and a queen size bed.

The bathroom is also on the upper level for your use. The bahroom is shed with host. My schedule is flexible so there won't be any time conflicts.

$100 per night (need to contact me and I'll send instructions to book more then one room or to book master bedroom) – Upper level master bedroom with private bath (not connect to the room but on the upper level of the home next to the bedroom). Tastefully decorated! The room features a flat panel television with cable, 300+ thread count sheets, plush pillows and a queen sized bed.

The full home, free laundry machines and kitchen are available for your use. May guests choose to grocery shop and prepare food. I invite you to help yourself to what is in the kitchen as far as condiments, dishes, cooking utensils, spices, etc. Breakfast will consist of coffee, tea, oatmeal, pastries or fruit.

All pets need to be approved. My dog is a Cocker Spaniel named Charlie and he will be in the home during your stay.

My home offers a very comfortable atmosphere and a great alternative to a hotel. I will do everything that I can to make your stay as pleasant as possible. I invite questions/concerns so we can find a solution and guarantee a wonderful stay..

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • I had a lovely stay here. The house is clean, quiet and convenient, and Tara is a great host. Her dog Charlie is totally adorable and friendly. The bed is quite comfortable, and the bathroom has a jacuzzi tub. The location is surprisingly convenient by transit to downtown and the airport, with frequent and nearby bus service. Absolutely recommended.

  • Tara and Charlie (the doggy) were perfect hosts. The bed is comfy and the house is just a quick bus ride to downtown. Would visit again.

  • The stay was good and Tara was a perfect host. Charlie was such a lovely pet...loved to play with him. Over all a good experience.

  • this was not what we were expecting--more of a house visit with a stranger than a stay at a b&b. the house is not really set up well for a b&b. one bedroom is off the living room where the host watches tv at night. the other is on the second floor, alongside her bedroom. she prefers her guests, staying in either bedroom, to use a bathroom in the basement although, in the end, she allowed us access to the bathroom on the second floor. in all fairness, tara was great, very friendly, very accommodating . . . and the location is excellent . . . but if you're looking for some degree of privacy, as i and my family were, this is probably not the best place to stay in the twin cities. if you like the friendliness of staying with someone you don't know as if staying with an old friend, then this place is for you.

  • Adorable home, adorable dog and super adorable hostess! I felt like I was staying with one of my friends, Tara and her friends were fantastic and very accommodating.

  • The bed was comfy and the host was friendly. Very close to bus line to downtown which was great and convenient. It is definitely not a very private room since it is just off a living room, but if you just need a place to spend the night it works well.

  • I was greeted by a very pleasant Tara and two charming dogs when I arrived. I'm so thankful that I have Tara's affordable place to stay at when I attended a conference in downtown Minneapolis. Oh...the bed was so comfortable.

  • Tara (and Charlie Dog) were amazing hosts - highly recommended, and I hope my travels take me back to Minneapolis so I can stay at her beautiful house again!

I am a business professional who owns a home in South Minneapolis where I live with my dog, Charlie. I have a female roommate as well. I have an extra bedroom available to rent by the night. I do have another bedroom that is occasionally available. Just ask me questions if your party is a group.
