Recenlty remodeled and fully furnished upper duplex apartment with 2 bedrooms & 1 bathroom. 8-10 minutes drive from downtown Minneapolis and 15-20 minutes by car from St. Paul. Walking distance from restaurants & local gems in the heart of Northeast Arts District. Non-smoking unit.

The space

This 1920's built unit has beautifully preserved woodwork and an inviting, modernized layout with 1100 square feet of space. The open dining and living room is comfortable and perfect for a nice dinner or watching a movie or your favorite show on Netflix, Hulu or a few other channels on the Roku device. An east facing 3 season porch is a great place for a cat nap or for relaxing while sipping a cup of coffee or enjoying time with friends and family. The newly remodeled bathroom has all the charm of the rest of the house and features the original, restored claw-foot tub. We provide you with fluffy towels, soap, AVEDA shampoo/conditioner, and hair-dryer. Each bedroom is furnished with queen size beds, fresh linens, & organic cotton pillows. You will also find closet space with hangers in each bedroom. The bedroom adjacent to the Dining Room has a heavy curtain divider for privacy. The large kitchen is fully equipped with many essentials, including a full range, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, dishes, cooking utensils and more. There is also a washer/dryer combo for your laundry needs along with an iron and ironing board. The apartment has been pet free and is cleaned thoroughly prior to each visit using environmentally friendly products as often as possible.

Guest access

Prior to your arrival, we will send you check in details and a personal code to the keypad on the front door of the unit. This is your own private entrance and you will be able to easily come and go as you please. Don't worry about forgetting a key or meeting us at a certain time to check in or out.

Please note you have to go up a set of stairs to get to the unit.

You will have access to the entire upper unit with kitchen, bathroom, dinning area, living room, 2 bedrooms, and 3 season front porch.

Once you arrive, you'll find a welcome book that details all the amenities in the apartment, where items are located, wifi access, etc. It also has sight seeing tips and suggestions on places to visit during your stay.

Please remember to lock the doors anytime you arrive or leave and remove your shoes when in the home.

Interaction with guests

We live on the lower level of the building and will be available to you via text or phone, or in person depending on our schedules. Please let us know if you have questions! We welcome interaction but respect our guests' privacy.

Other things to note

We have two older dogs who live in the lower unit. They love people. Cosmo, the happy Samoyed, is often enjoying the breeze while JetBlue, our faithful yellow lab, is usually exploring some nook or cranny. JetBlue does bark at first but is friendly. In the fall, you'll find them anxiously waiting for apples to fall from the apple tree so they can take advantage of a treat courtesy of Mother Nature.

I booked Karen & Aaron's place to house my 77 year old father, my sister and myself while we were in town for a reunion. Communication from the start was very easy and they made sure to answer all my questions for making sure it would be comfortable for everyone. The house is very charming with all wood floors and the original claw foot bath tub, but with all new appliances and kitchen and bathroom fixtures. Everything was very fresh and check-in was easy. It was especially great to have a key code to get in the front door, rather than have to worry about the 3 of us keeping up with a set of keys. The beds were very comfortable and my the bathroom equipped with all the hotel style amenities. It was also great that they had a washer/dryer for free use. The neighborhood is close to lots of new restaurants and breweries. I absolutely recommend their place hands down. And will definitely be back for future visits. Thanks Karen & Aaron. Cheers!

Karen and Aaron’s home is a perfect home base for all things Minneapolis. Beds are cozy, bathroom is big bathtub great, kitchen is well equipped for home cooking. I loved the front sun room for morning coffee. The location is wonderful for that small neighborhood feel and has a small grocery store, coffee shop and fun places to tuck in to for treats. Best of all for me was the ability to walk everywhere. Busses are nearby and you can get downtown quickly and take the light rail easily. I would recommend this little home as a safe, cute, comfortable place to stay.

One of The nicest Airbnb homes we've stayed in! Everything is clean and comfortable, not to mention the stylish decor. Karen and Aaron are very responsive when questions arise and even left us some fresh baked cookies. We hosted a small gathering with friends and there was lots of room, and Karen and Aaron were very accommodating regarding the request. Thanks again for a wonderful stay!

Karen & Aaron's place was fantastic: clean, roomy, cosy, kind of what you'd like your home-away-from-home to feel like. I'd gladly stay there again and would highly recommend it to other Air B&B'ers out there.

This place is so clean. The hosts were detailed and gave suggestions for what to do in Minneapolis. The location is close to great restaurants. We had a wonderful time in Minneapolis and Karen and Aaron's place helped us relax in a home away from home. Thanks!
