About this listing
You'll be in a sunny guest room in a cozy, older house. In Seward you'll be close to the West Bank of the U, the Mississippi, and parks and museums all while staying in a quiet neighborhood. You can basically walk to US Bank Stadium and TCF Field. There's bus access to both downtowns, shopping, and entertainment. There are bikes to borrow and 3 different bike paths within blocks. It's a great spot and I love having guests share my home.
The house was built in 1941 and is in an interesting neighborhood surrounded by identical houses. It's a friendly, quiet neighborhood to stay. It definitely is an older home with some quirks, but it's cozy and lovely.
Feel free to use the kitchen or watch some Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, HBO Now on the TV in the basement unless there's a guest staying in that room. The grill in the backyard is also good to use! If you need to store a bike while visiting it can get stored in the garage.
Interaction with guests
I work a couple different jobs and also am a performer in the Twin Cities so I'm not around too much. When I am around I love steering people in the direction of something fun or delicious.
Walking distance to multiple bus lines and close to the light rail. Only 6 blocks to the Mississippi River where you can walk, run, or bike. You'll be close to the University of Minnesota, museum, parks, shopping and restaurants.
There are a couple of good restaurants (Birchwood, Cafe Racer Kitchen) within walking distance. For the most part the neighborhood is pretty quiet and residential, but a five minute bike ride will take you to anything you'd need.
If you're coming with a car, there's plenty of street parking. If not, there are 3 bus routes close by and the lightrail is a quick connection away.
There are two bikes available for guests! The city is exceptionally bike friendly and the greenway is just two blocks away.
Other things to note
The shower turns on by pulling down from the faucet. Don't move the shower head or else the whole bathroom will get wet. :)
No pets or smoking. Guns are not allowed in the home. Other than that, just be respectful and keep the cats inside.
I'm a big Disney fan. I love doing Disney running events because it gives me an excuse to visit Disneyland or Disney World as well as do a distance run. I work from home as a writer and consultant and also do comedy and acts. I enjoy doing CrossFit, cooking, and museums.
