Welcome to the vibrant, diverse Uptown neighborhood of Minneapolis! Located just a few blocks from Lake Calhoun, Lake & Hennepin and Lyn-Lake shopping districts, this charming, non-smoking apartment (located within our duplex home; a 'shotgun' apartment completely self-contained with a separate entrance) is available for rent year round.
Please note that we welcome guests of all ages, nationalities, races, religions (or lack thereof), languages and sexual orientation. No discrimination here, no profiling - just a warm welcome to all!
NOTE: As of December 1, we are remodeling the apartment. The living room will no longer be part of it, and guests will access the apartment from the back yard. You will have a dedicated off-street parking space big enough for a small to mid-size car, and use of a lovely backyard with patio, table, chairs, and gas grill. Nightly rate will be $75. If you'd like to book from December 1 on, please keep this in mind. Thanks!
Relax in the cozy living room, complete with beautiful gas fireplace (especially nice in winter), plenty of books and board games, eclectic original art, and a small flat-screen television (network channels plus very basic cable; nothing fancy!). Wifi throughout for your streaming and internet needs. There's a personalized neighborhood guide with lots of restaurant recommendations in the dining room, and we are happy to recommend shops, family adventures, theaters and other attractions.
The apartment, which comprises the right half of the main floor of our duplex home, features one full bedroom, a fold-down queen futon couch in the living room and a second fold-down queen futon couch in the sitting/dining room. The serene bedroom features a queen-size bed with new mattress and memory foam topper, overhead fan, 100% cotton sheets and quilts and towels, and plenty of extra pillows, including new memory foam pillows if you prefer them.
The sitting/dining room contains a dining nook (seating for four), a children's corner with toys and books, an overhead fan and a fold-down queen-size futon couch. Brand-new handheld remote-controlled heat, air conditioning and dehumidifier provide instant comfort throughout the apartment no matter the season.
The kitchen is fully supplied with pots and pans, dishes, rice cooker, a full-sized refrigerator and gas stove/oven, microwave, coffeemaker, toaster and utensils. (No dishwasher.) Please note that the kitchen photos are out of date, as we recently replastered and repainted the walls, repainted the cabinets, and refinished the underlying hardwood floor.
The bathroom, while small, contains both tub and shower and a new sink. The apartment has two closets and plenty of drawer space. A hairdryer and plenty of supplies --soap, toilet paper, a first aid kit-- are provided.
On-street parking is almost always available in front of the house, and flower gardens surround both the house and the boulevard in season. The Uptown and Lyn-Lake neighborhoods are renowned for their wide variety of restaurants, theaters, movies, shopping (both small indie shops and national branches), grocery stores both upscale and midscale, bars, music and people-watching.
Do you like the great outdoors? You'll be in heaven. Bike trails, walking and running paths, sailing, canoe, kayak, paddleboarding, cross-country skiing, ice skating, snowshoeing, swimming and no fewer than ten gyms and yoga studios are all located within a few blocks.
We are located three blocks in all directions from multiple bus lines, allowing quick access anywhere you wish to go in the metro area.
Minneapolis is a beautiful city year-round, and we invite you to come enjoy it in all seasons. We love sharing our neighborhood with others and would be happy to help you with any questions you might have.
