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.
This is a beautiful home in a wonderful neighborhood. We definitely would like to use these accommodations down the road.
This was the perfect home and perfect place for a group of 10 girls for a bachelorette party! It was located in a perfect area. Walking distance from restaurants, Starbucks, and liquor store and close to uptown and downtown Minneapolis! I would recommend and definitely go back again! Thank you so much Greg and Dorris!
My four friends and I had a wonderful weekend at the house. It was beautifully decorated, very comfortable and had all the amenities that we could ask for. The closets were filled with towels, and the kitchen was well stocked. We were able to cook gourmet meals every day, and only wanted to go out to eat once. Everyone had their own bedroom / sleeping area. The owners were responsive whenever i texted them with a question. It's convenient to downtown, but far enough away from the busy areas. The house faces a park stretched along a creek. If it were a little warmer, we probably would have gone out for a long walk. I would definitely come back here.
I had a wonderful time hosting my golden birthday party in this lovey home. Everything was well stock with plenty of dishes and cups for my guest of 24 people. The second level had great space to decorate and for everyone to lounge around. The home was just beautiful and in a great place. I would definitely recommend this place.
Great home for our large group. This home has a perfect floor plan with 2 levels. Everyone can be together if they choose or if the want to get away for some solitude this too is possible in this home. The home owners were great to work with,,cant wait to go back.
My college buddies stayed here one night while in town to enjoy the Fleetwood Mac concert on their opening debut at the Target Center in downtown. The cab ride was only $10 each way, thus avoiding parking. The reservation was flawless, as well as the immediate return of my damage deposit. The home is situated on a beautiful parkway complete with walking paths all the way to Lake Hariett and the lakes. I walked my dog for over two hours and enjoyed a fine fall day.
The home was in immaculate condition. I have rented through VRBO many times before, and this is definitely one of the top properties for cleanliness, great location and excellent management.
We rented this home while in Minnesota for our son's wedding. This well maintained home is in a good location - we had several airport runs and when not busy with wedding things, we enjoyed our visit to Lake Harriet & Lake Calhoun. We have runners in the family & they loved the trails. House well stocked - even bikes and a laundry room. Nice yard with grill & outdoor furniture. It was nice having the family together instead of hotel rooms. Greg & Doris were quick to respond to our questions - they made our stay very enjoyable.
