I work in the contemporary art world. I am 54 years old, speak German and English, live in Minnesota and love art and sports.
Such a great spot...in the woods of Wayzata. Kati and her whole family are great neighbors and hosts.
Kati's guesthouse is super! It's near the water, beautifully landscaped, with the boundless amenities of gorgeous Lake Minnetonka all around. And the indoor space is fantastic....open, airy, spacious and quite comfortable. It is an oasis of peace and calm and privacy, yet within a few minute's drive of all the shopping and restaurants you'll need. You can even be in downtown Minneapolis in less than an hour
I had a wonderful stay and even had my grandchildren over for an overnight. They loved everything, including the "magic toilet." You'll see what I mean when you arrive.
Thank you, Kati and Mark. You are the consummate hosts!
My daughter, granddaughter and myself loved staying at Kati's guesthouse. The grounds are beautiful and we enjoyed walking down to Lake Minnetonka. The guesthouse is extremely comfortable and filled with fabulous artworks and books. Kati is a attentive and thoughtful hostess who provided us with everything we needed for a wonderful three day weekend. The guesthouse is very close to Wayzata , Lake Minnetonka, shopping and lots of activities. I would highly recommend this guesthouse.
Beautiful property, great amenities! A/C worked great! And so did the European style toilet, I am spoiled now! Easy access to freeways and shopping as well as a wonderfully scenic drive. Very kind and respectful host. Love this area! Can't wait to get back!
An architectural treasure in an incredibly peaceful setting. We normally come up to the Cities and stay with relatives but the Guesthouse made our normal visit into a real getaway. Loved everything about it and Mark and Kati were perfect hosts (meaning they were around but never intrusive). We appreciated that.
Kati and her family were very accommodating. We enjoyed spending time at the lake in a beautiful environment. I would highly recommend this modernist guesthouse to anyone visiting Minneapolis.
This place is ideal. Quiet and peaceful. Soothing design and nice surroundings on every square foot. Enjoy the wide range of books and the art. I would recommend this guesthouse to my closest friends.
Paul came to. Stay at my place in palm desert for 4days to visit family a nd play golf I met him at check and actually never had the chance to see him again as he was out all day he was very nice very quiet and an excellent guest
Kati's daughter Kristina stayed at my apartment for two months. Kati was fast in responding to my messages, her daughter however was not reachable for the first month. She left the apartment in a bad condition (dirt and trash everywhere, stains on the wall, mold in the kitchen etc). When I claimed the deposit to cover parts of the costs that were caused by extra cleaning hours, replacing broken items and repairs, Kati tried to lower the amount. All in all I would not recommend Kati or Kati's daughter as guests due to my experience.
kati was my first experience with hosting a guest in my apartment. she is the best guest anybody can dream of: friendly and very quiet. kati left the room and bathroom very neat and clean!
i hope to welcome kati again during artbasel 2013!
