The Space

Welcome to our home! Located in a progressive, biker and pedestrian friendly neighborhood. We are very close to downtown Minneapolis, University of Minnesota, and just across the river from St. Paul. It's great being 5 minutes from everything!

Our home accomodates 2 guests. A spacious and comfortable bedroom with a double bed, and access to our entire home. You are welcome to join us for breakfast or dinner if it fits into your schedule, or feel free to use our updated and spacious kitchen to prepare your own meals. We are close to several great cafes and we are 6 blocks from our neighborhood organic food cooperative.

Transporation includes: Nice Ride Bikes (station 1/2 block from our home), Light Rail commuter train, and bus service. If you have your own car, parking is available on street in front of our home.

Our neighborhood is very active with bikers, walkers, and friendly neighbors. We are blocks from the Minneapolis Grand Rounds trail system which by bike or foot will take you through the many wonderful and natural areas of our City.

Guest Access

Guests will have access to the whole house and garage if needed for bikes, etc. We also have a big backyard and open front porch for relaxing!

Interaction with Guests

We are a pretty busy household. We, along with our guests, come and go with ease. Often we find time in the morning over coffee to chat with guests and provide insight and recommendations for the City.

The Neighborhood

Our neighborhood is centrally located in the City. We are minutes to the University by foot; and a quick bus ride or bike ride to Uptown, Downtown and NE. Our neighborhood is safe and full of great people, restaurants, and bikeways. The Mississippi River is 3 blocks away, and by bike or foot you can explore banks of the River and the wonderful neighborhoods which line it.

Getting Around

We are a 1/2 block from a major bus line with direct access to downtown, uptown and NE. There is a bike sharing station located 1 block away for those who would like to commute about the City on 2-wheels. (Which I highly recommend!). Also, our home is located within a mile of both the green line train and the blue line train. The green line provides access between downtown Minneapolis and downtown Saint Paul. The blue line provides access between downtown Minneapolis and the Mall of America and the Airport.
