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 place was wonderful. The house is beautiful, on a quiet street across from a creek with a walking/biking/running trail. There was a fully stocked kitchen with coffee, tea and an assortment of breakfast foods, plus a few great treats. My queen sized bed was perfect, the bathroom was stocked with fluffy towels and there was plenty of hot water. The entire house was spotless and showed the care Greg and Doris put into making it warm and comfortable. I highly recommend staying here.
This was an awesome place to stay, the place was better than the photos. It is very quiet and homey feel. When we got there Greg and Doris had everything ready and we were able to walk in and start enjoying our company. We were all getting together for a family weddding. I would definitly come back here again. You are within walking distance to the store. Most definitly recommend.
We rented this house so that everybody that was coming in for a wedding would be together. Greg and Doris are awesome to rent from and when we arrived everything was clean and neat and readily available. We were very satisfied and comfortable at the house, it felt like home. Everyone had their space if they wanted it or there was enough room for all of us to be together. The area is very beautiful. I would definitely rent from them again.
We were in town for our daughter's wedding and this house met all our needs from dinners with extended family, wedding prep, and unexpected guests. The owner graciously welcomed us and was easily reached when we had questions or concerns. The house is truly a PARKWAY BEAUTY!!
The house was everything we had hoped for. It was very spacious with lots of place to sleep and extremely well stocked. It's in a beautiful location on Minnehaha Creek and close to several place (Mall of America, Minnehaha Falls, etc..) to help fill your days. It is obvious that the owners take great pride in provided the best experience they can
We really enjoyed our stay at Doris and Greg's rental. We have plenty of space to spread out. The beds were comfortable and the location was great. I enjoyed runs on the parkway every day while there. And the house was stocked with everything imaginable. We'd love to stay in this rental again!
