Lower level private entrance into the guest apartment/suite. Self check in keypad. Outside smoking only. We are staycation ready and a great work from home alternative. Perfect for relaxing after a busy day.
“Christine’s place was wonderful! It was cozy, extremely clean, and made for a restful place to wind down and relax. My favorite part was the bird watching in the morning and the view to her beautiful winter dreamy backyard. Christine was great at communicating. She had extra little touches to her space such as coffee that were great for my stay. All in all, it was a great experience and so worth the value!”
Beautiful Studio Condo in the heart of uptown
“I had a great stay for work. The TV was broken and he responded immediately and resolved the issue. He was very kind and a great host! Highly recommend - I was able to walk to French Meadow for dinner.”

“Will Terry and Gabriele's place " Gabriele's Lakeshore Gardens " fit your needs? YES, YES, YES! My wife and I travel quite a bit and we had plans for our 30th anniversary in the Caribbean, but unfortunate conditions cancelled our trip. The only option was a "staycation", which we have done in the past with mediocre experiences. Gabriele's Lakeshore Gardens looked to fit the bill. It has beautiful gardens, a hot tub and on the water ( Lake Minnetonka) so we booked for two nights. Upon our arrival Terry and Gabriele met us and we knew straight away that we made the right decision. Simply put, after the first night I asked my wife, should we extend our stay another night? We ended up staying the whole week ( April 26th - May 2nd). Staycation an AMAZING, MEMORABLE experience! You will not be disappointed, we truly feel we made new friends and will be booking again. - Separate living area from bedroom - Amazing selection of books and games - Well appointed kitchen with all the goods - utensils, coffee maker, microwave, snacks, plenty of single use coffee pods, etc - Hot tub overlooking the lake - Kayaks ( we used everyday) and explored the bays. Got great photos of the resident loons and sunsets. -Fire pit - Close to Excelsior for goods that you may need or a quick bite. - Etc. You will not be disappointed!”
