Great place

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful efficiency apartment. Most impressive is that is was absolutely spotless! It is hard to find rental places that are clean and feel like home. This was definitely the one. We were there for our daughter’s ice dance competition and truly enjoyed it. Very quiet and relaxing. Close to the airport and Mall of America. Not very many choices of grocery stores nearby (we like to eat at home), but we didn’t mind driving a while to a bigger store. The hostess provided everything we needed. Highly recommend this place!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review and comments. You may have missed the full grocery store only a few blocks from The Cottage on 34th Ave. Oxendale's is local owned hosting wonderful produce, meat, fish & a small deli. Across the street guests will find a full liquor store. Guests may cross the Mississippi River to St. Paul approx. 1 mile away. Here are many more shops & Lunds/Byerlys grocery store. It was a sincere pleasure hosting you.

Compact and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Ms. Nelson has put a lot of effort and imagination into making this a unique place to stay. Very charming. Had everything we needed and more. This cottage is located behind the main house on the property. Located in an older neighborhood with all the basics near by - grocery store, good restaurants, post office. We were in town on business so we did not have time to explore some of the near-by parks.

We've stayed in dozens of vacation rentals in the U.S. and Europe, and this is one of the very best. Everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay was taken care of. The kitchen is very functional, although we didn't do a lot of real cooking. The bed is comfortable, as is the other furniture. I was skeptical about where we were going to put all of our clothes, but the wardrobe and drawers proved very ample. The garden was a real treat, as it is completely private to the cottage. The weather didn't always cooperate, this being Minnesota after all, but we enjoyed the outdoors as much as possible. I think we only used the air conditioning for two or three days, as it got quite cool over the Labor Day weekend. The location is perfect, close to all major arteries and public transportation. I can't imagine more than two adults here, perhaps with a small child or two. But it was extremely comfortable for these senior citizens.

Great Attention To Every Detail

  • 5 of 5

AND walking distance to the Falls. Who could ask for more? - Suggest bringing an eye mask for those who are light sensitive.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! The Cottage hosts two "sun tunnels", which amplify the natural light from outdoor. FYI - the sun tunnels do not emit light after dark. Guests may use "black out" covers on the sun tunnels, which are easy to use and block all light. This is especially nice if you plan sleeping through the morning. Walking or biking to Minnehaha Falls or Lake Nokmois from The Cottage is one of many favorite guest activities. Make sure to visit "Sand Castles" outdoor restaurant at Lake Nokomis and "Sea Salt" at Minnehaha Falls for local fare in a casual, fun atmosphere. This is what "Minnesota Nice" is all about! Thank you so much for being my guests. It was a pleasure hosting you.

One block to METRO Transit w/ direct route to US Bank Stadium.

The Cottage is located in South Minneapolis' most treasured neighborhoods. Sandwiched between Lake Nokomis, Minnehaha Falls/Park, The Mississippi River, West River Parkway & Highland Park/St Paul. Located on a safe, quiet street near the heart of the city in an outstanding neighborhood.

The Cottage is 1 block from METRO Transit & minutes to the light rail/blue line, which runs from the Mall of America (stopping at MSP terminals) to downtown Minneapolis. Here guests may also access the green line with routes to the University of Minnesota to downtown St Paul.

Close (but not too close) to Minneapolis International Airport, Mall of America and IKEA, which makes it a great location for guests with tight travel connections.

Guests may enjoy walking or biking to Lake Nokomis, historic Minnehaha Falls or hiking along the Mississippi River. There are many, many special events hosted in the area because of the location.

A few blocks from excellent award-winning local restaurants, bars, coffee shops, bakeries, grocery, liquor and cute, unique shops. Guests will enjoy exploring this fun, safe Minneapolis neighborhood with its small town vibe so close to the city's heart.

Close to main highway arteries makes getting around Minneapolis & St Paul SUPER easy!
