About Mary Felknor
I grew up in Hawaii and have lived in Germany and Thailand. I love to travel and after staying in numerous short term rentals all over Europe, I decided to offer my home to visitors here.
Mary Felknor purchased this House in 2011
Why Mary Felknor chose Southwest Minneapolis
I fell in love with this house the day I saw it. I signed the purchase agreement that day and my kids and I relocated. They went to elementary school and high school here. My daughter just graduated from college and my youngest is a student at the University of Minnesota. They are definitely city kids!
What makes this House unique
This home was a parsonage for monks many years ago and was part of the Russian History Museum that is just down the street. When 35 W came thru, the house was moved to its current lot. The arched windows, the stucco, the balconies and many other things remind me of Italy and Spain.

Mary's home was an excellent space for our family gathering. Plenty of room with nice location next to Minnehaha parkway. Nice stores and restaurants in driving distance. Despite being close to the airport and the freeway, inside the home was very quiet. Would definitely stay here again.
Really enjoyed the bike/foot path right next to the property and the location in regards to downtown Minneapolis, the airport and Mall of America. The house was very nice and was the highlight of our trip.
Love this Vacation Property!
Mary is such a wonderful and gracious hostess! We loved our stay in her wonderful home. It is so charming that we hated to leave. The location is perfect. Close to everything but just far enough that her home is very relaxing and peaceful. We enjoyed a fire in the fire pit one evening and Mary treated my oldest boys to Twins tickets another night. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this home to any travelers going to the area.
This has been the best vacation rental our family has experienced, hands down. The home is beautiful, and is in a great location. We really enjoyed the privacy of the backyard as well. Mary was a wonderful host in every way possible. A great home for a Minneapolis trip!
Renee! Thank you for the fabulous review! I’m so happy that you enjoyed yourselves! If you venture this way in the future, I would love to have you stay again. Thank you, Mary
Comfy stay in Minneapolis
This is an older property with lots of architectural character. It has all the modern amenities and we were comfortable here while in town for a graduation.
Comfy bedding and updated bathrooms helped us get ready for the day.
The property had plenty of space for 4 adults to enjoy each other's company but still enjoy quiet time for coffee and the neighborhood vibe. We were able to have several more guests dine with us as there is plenty of room to cook and eat.
Communication with Mary was always prompt and added to our feeling of being welcomed guests.
We hope to return and enjoy the lovely gardens in better weather.
As city folks ourselves, we appreciated being close to the park, the interstate, and the airport. This is included not to discourage anyone, ust a heads up for any potential guests who might be more sensitive to the occasional noises of an urban locale. They were not an issue at all for us.
We hope you enjoy your time here as well.
Thank you for your generous review, I would love to have you anytime!
Great place in great location
We rented this property so 3 of us could be together for a family funeral as opposed to several different hotel rooms. The house was cozy and had everything we needed. Beautiful neighborhood. Lots of good eateries in the area and within 20 minutes of the airport. Mary was absolutely wonderful with communicating. I would recommend this house and would definitely stay here again.
Karen, It was my pleasure having you and your family stay. I’m sorry that you weren’t here under happier circumstances but it sounds like you made the most of it. You left the house looking so great, thank you. And thank you for the very nice review!
