Note: "The Cottage" is 1 block from METRO TRANSIT/light rail with preferred NO DRIVING transit to/from US BANK STADIUM.

This delightful Nordic Nook is ADA-compliant and hosts one-level living, which makes it convenient for everyone -- especially those with physical limitations. The Cottage is inspected & licensed by the City of Minneapolis.

"The Cottage" -- is new construction and presents a serious Scandinavian-Minnesota attitude with its fresh, clean, contemporary design.

"No step" creates the perfect solution for guests with physical limitations. Walk out the door to your vehicle parked next to The Cottage -- or use the garage provided. The Cottage is close to stores, Metro Transit, restaurants, shops and more.

"The Cottage" is conveniently located in one of Minneapolis' most treasured residential neighborhoods nestled away on a quiet street near the heart of the city. Sandwiched between our beloved Lake Nokomis & Historic Minnehaha Falls at The Mighty Mississippi River.

Close to Minneapolis/St Paul International Airport, MOA, METRO Transit, Light Rail Blue Line, Downtown, US BANK/TWINS & TCF Stadiums. Walking distance to grocery, bakeries, shops, library and fabulous locally-owned restaurants. Biking & walking trails are literally out the door connecting to the infamous "Minneapolis Chain of Lakes" and the best Minneapolis/St Paul offer. Bicycles are available for guest use, of course. It is always about location.

"The Cottage" hosts vaulted ceilings and skylights, which flood the indoor with natural light while providing an open and spacious feel. Thoughtful design and attention to every detail provide guests a "home away from home" experience with a caring touch.

"The Cottage" hosts a private entry, covered porch and large flagstone patio, which extends the living space -- outdoor. Perennial gardens, fruits, vegetables & herbs surround "The Cottage" adding charm & character to this special Nordic-inspired nook. The large outdoor living space provides guests a place to relax, BBQ and enjoy Minneapolis' weather most the year. A charcoal-fueled grill is provided for guest use. A propane-fueled "fire table" on the patio brings warmth to guests on cool evenings.

A queen wall bed hosts a high-quality mattress for a comfortable night sleep, which easily folds away during the day. A plush, comfortable sleeper sofa provides space for guests to relax and visiting guests to slumber. A privacy screen separates the 2 areas, if desired. Quality linens, pillows and bed covers are provided.

A large full-size bathroom hosts a semi-circular glass shower with excellent water pressure, heat lamps, plenty of storage and washer & dryer. The bathroom is supplied with quality towels, shampoo, conditioner, body soap and laundry detergent.

The main living area has plenty of space to relax, watch television or entertain friends and family. A large, "smart television" offers many options including cable television and free Netflix.

"The Cottage" presents a fully equipped and functional kitchen w/ range, refrigerator/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, pantry and plenty of cabinet space resulting in a kitchen that really cooks! The dining table accommodates 4 and a multi-functional desk in the front entry provides additional dining space for visitors. It may also be used as a bed table for reading/computer -- or if you are lucky maybe breakfast in bed?

Large, mirrored closets emphasize the space while providing plenty of storage for guest's personal belongings. An iron and ironing board are available for guest use.

Guests have access to one garage stall with electric opener and outdoor parking next to "The Cottage". Additional on-street parking is also available.

"The Cottage" is Minneapolis' "COOLEST" 5-star Scandinavian-Minnesota-Nice accommodation with guests saying it all with their 5-star ratings.

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

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.

This one is a keeper. If you are looking for a place a bit out of the way and yet close enough to everything you need, consider this comfy Cottage. It is only about 1 block from a Metro bus stop, which can take you to the light rail in a couple of minutes. The light rail can transport you as far south as the Mall of America; as far north as Target Field; and as far east as St. Paul. You can take the light rail from the airport too. My wife and I were looking for a quiet, quaint place and definitely found it. It is on a short street that is almost exclusively used by those who live on the street. It is a safe street. The cottage is within 1/2 mile (at most) of a grocery store; local shops; a Post Office and a very nice local breakfast/lunch restaurant. If you choose to eat in, no problem; Carolyn has supplied all you need to get you started and more. She was a great help, both before and during the trip. Carolyn was attentive, but never intrusive. She was quick to respond to any small request/question we might have. There are also a couple of bikes available for your use and Minneapolis is one of the most bike friendly cities in the country. We are bikers and loved this benefit. There is also a nice sitting area outside in the rear of the cottage. We would definitely recommend it to anybody wanting to visit Minneapolis. We loved the city and the Cottage and Carolyn.

Minnesota - Glasgow Scotland Connection

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned home from another visit home. This was our second stay at 'The Cottage' in Minneapolis. Once again, we were truly amazed at the care and comfort this location offers to those who choose to come and stay here.

This is all possible because of the owner and the others who do so much to make this place such a joy to come to - there is enough stress involved when it comes to traveling - having a home away from home to come to makes this a less stressful part of the journey.

We look forward to coming back again later this summer and are already making our travel and reservation plans for next year.

Thank you Carolyn for once again making our trip home such a joy.
