“This place was fantastic, beautifully decorated, quiet/calm neighborhood that was so fun for my morning runs. Very close to supermarkets and a costco for easy grocery shopping. The most gorgeous garden that smelled amazing, my family had a great time admiring the plants and playing cornhole (provided by host) in the yard. The host was very responsive and very helpful when I needed to check-in at 9pm. Check-in was a breeze. Lots of thoughtful touches inside like keurig cups and cream in the fridge. The kitchen was fully stocked with plates, silverware, knives, cups, etc. The sofa sleeper was surprisingly very comfortable and my parents say the bed was also comfortable. I would absolutely recommend this place, I plan on coming back if I ever need a place in Minneapolis again.”

“Debbie and Austin have a wonderful home. They have two paddle boards, a kayak, a canoe, a pedal boat, and a small battery-powered fishing boat. The water at the lake was the perfect temperature and not too many weeds. We were there during the week and the lake was almost empty - I swam across the lake and had no concerns about getting hit by a motorboat. The kitchenette doesn’t have a full oven but the toaster oven is high-quality and the kitchen has every appliance you could need: we made bacon, eggs, cinnamon rolls, grilled cheese in the panini press, brownies, coffee, etc. Debbie and Austin are also highly committed to maintaining safety in the time of COVID: they have an air purifier that cleans all the air over the span of 5 hours. Upon arrival all linens were clean and every surface was sparkling. Since they are so dedicated to cleaning, they asked us to check out earlier if possible (we checked out at 9), but they were incredibly hospitable and allowed us to continue hanging out on the lake and using all their water crafts until 3pm. After we left we drove over to Excelsior and explored the cute little town as well! Truly these are super hosts and you can’t find a better “lake life” experience this close to the Cities!”

“We spend most of the year in Air BnB and short term rental accommodation. Kris’s place was cozy, exceptionally clean and comfortable. We struggled a bit with the lack of a full kitchen but worked around this by buying a cheap electric frying pan. The apartment is very private, the linen and utensils are all in good condition. There is ample lighting and for us, we found the location perfect for everywhere we needed to be. We did find the steps down to the apartment slippery in the rain and when the Fall leaves stacked upon them. Kris is a fabulous host, she responses quickly to messages and problem solves any situation which arose quickly and effectively. The area is quiet and appealing for walkers. We recommend Kris’s apartment.”
