This space is a private 3RD floor of a historic home. Featuring a private entrance, King bedroom, 1 bathroom, open living space, updated kitchen, and enclosed porch. The best part about this space is the location- walking distance to the lakes, restaurants, grocery, and coffee shops, pubs, shopping. The house is old which means charming quirks and interesting features. Stocked with basic amenities. Professionally cleaned. Basic but comfy stay for guests who want to be close to the city/ lake.

The space

The space is unique because of its location. In the heart of the city, yet quite. Close to downtown, museums, restaurants, bars, shopping, and coffee shops. About 20 min from the airport depending on traffic. If you are up for an adventure the lakes are 2 blocks away where you can rent paddle boards, canoes, and bikes. Public transportation a few blocks away. The home is very old and quirky. The bathroom is very functional but unique. Overhead lighting was not a thing when the home was built, so lamps are available, and feel free to move them around from room to room.

Guest access

The entire 3rd floor- private entrance on the side of the house. Guests have access to the basement for laundry.

Interaction with guests

I am always available via text / call for emergencies or if you need something that is not provided.

Other things to note

A dog lives in the house on the first floor with the owners.

Sarah and Derek's place is roomy, comfortable and has tons of character. Plenty of room to relax in the morning with a cup of coffee or breakfast, and a terrific walkable location on a picturesque, super charming street. Would definitely love to stay here again on my next trip to Minneapolis.

Do you want a place that is spacious, private, has a great king-sized bed and don't need a lot of frills? This is it. We actually live in Minneapolis in a condo, but had a large number of guests and wanted some space of our own, and a place to have a private breakfast. It is in a great part of town, with easy access to everything by public transportation (or bike!). The third floor apartment is in a Victorian house, so you should be prepared for the slight quirkiness that entails (if you really like ultra-modern bathrooms, this is not for you...). We felt really at home for the six days that we spent there. Will use again if we have an overflow of grandchildren!

It's a good location; seems like it's 10-15 minutes to everything. There were plenty of dishes, towels, and essentials. We really enjoyed our cozy and comfortable stay for the week! Also, there's a great ice cream shop just a short walk away.

What a gem! Perfect location for both quiet and privacy, as well as access to the delights of Minneapolis. The apartment was super comfortable and we felt totally at home.

A classic uptown Minneapolis address, this apartment is close to everything but the quiet neighborhood and windows looking out on treetops provide a pleasant retreat.

Charming digs in an elegant, historic neighborhood. Wonderful, central location, within walking distance of great cafes, restaurants, lakes, parks, and public transportation. An excellent value!

My husband and I are young working corporate professionals who love to travel and explore our Minneapolis neighborhood. We are primarily hosts on Airbnb, but also love to travel.

The private 3rd level of our home is a one bedroom suite, so we open it to guests.

Our house has 3 floors- the first we live on, the second we rent out, and the 3rd unit we share with guests.

Let me know if you need Minneapolis advise on where to eat, what to do, and what to see while you are here. Minneapolis has a wide variety of concerts, Arts, museums, micro breweries, eat street, lakes, and festivals.
