Greg and Doris have enjoyed hosting guests in their next-door rental home for the past 10 years. Avid gardeners and remodelers, they have poured great effort into making the house a relaxing and enjoyable place to stay. Having done extensive international travel themselves, they understand the little touches that make for a comfortable visit.

Greg & Doris purchased this house in 1998

Having lived next door for over 30 years, we had considered buying the home for family member use at various times, but then had an opportunity when the neighbors were suddenly transferred out of town for business. We targeted the house specifically for international and corporate relocation families, and have developed some great continuing friendships with our guests. Being right next door, it has been very convenient for us to attend to the property and assist guests when needed.

Spacious home, great for wedding parties, family or friends reunions, business groups.

Mixture of comfortable modern ranch layout, with classic woodwork & coved ceilings.

Great weekend away!!

  • 5 out of 5
What a wonderful home away from home!! We came up on a weekend of TERRIBLE weather. By the time we got to Minneapolis we were pretty exhausted. Parkway Beauty was so welcoming and cozy. We had 10 people staying in the house and there was plenty of space for everyone to spread out. Parkway Beauty is located in a beautiful neighborhood that would be an amazing place for a run in the spring and summer. When we return to Minneapolis we will definitely try to stay in Parkway Beauty again!!!

Stay.....enjoy!

  • 4 out of 5
We stayed here during the week leading up to our son's wedding. To me, the most perfect aspect of the house was that it was clean! When you rent over the internet, sight unseen, you just don't know. But there are no worries at Greg & Doris' place.. Greg and Doris do a great job keeping everything shipshape! There were six adults and we were quite comfortable. Three shared the upstairs bath and two bedrooms; two shared the downstairs bath and two bedrooms. We wanted to cook dinner for our family while everyone was together, and we were able to do that quite well. Over our week-long stay, I don't think there was a thing we couldn't find in that kitchen. It was fully stocked with everything we needed. It was almost as good as being at home. My only complaints......the bed in the master was hard as a rock. Not my style, but I am sure others would be fine. Also, the room on the main floor where the TV is located is cramped. I wished it was in the living room. Honestly, though, there's so much to do in the area, there was hardly any time for TV watching. We only used it late at night when we were tired and needed to just relax a bit before hitting the sack! One thing to be aware of when staying in Minneapolis, is the proximity to the airport. It can get quite noisy, not only in the Lake Harriet area, but in many of the beautiful areas of the city.

Home away from home

  • 5 out of 5
Greg and Doris have a wonderful rental home. 5 women stayed very comfortably in this home for one week. We were delighted that is was right across the street to the very bike path we took every day to see Minneapolis and surrounding areas. The house was withing walking distance to stores and restaurants if we decided not to drive or bike. The neighbor hood is completely safe and quiet. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed to cook with and Doris even included spices, coffee, and condiments! I cannot say enough about the extras with this rental!

Great vacation home in an awesome neighborhood

  • 5 out of 5
Loved every part of this home from the minute we pulled up until the minute we left. Which actually made me quite sad. It's in a beautiful neighborhood on a greenbelt, barely any traffic, lots of bikers, runners, and families walking. Gorgeous scenery. I could have sat in the front window all day drinking tea.

Definitely try out Lake Harriet a mile down the road. Beautiful beach and lunch at the Bread and Pickle was a favorite for all of us.

Pizzeria Lola, Malt Shop, and Prima are all great recommendations for great nearby restaurants.

If visiting any part of this city I HIGHLY recommend this great house. We will definitely stay again.
