RIGHT ON DIVISION ST, steps from Carleton College, shopping, bars/nightlife, and the river- rent a 100+ year-old, BEAUTIFULLY RESTORED, 1/1 unit- complete with wood floors, grand high-ceilings, & lg picture windows peering out at historic Northfield.

The space

THE PERFECT PLACE TO WRITE A NOVEL IN- this open and airy apartment with loft-style pipes venting the A/C under the 11-foot ceilings, with old-windows, and original hardwood floors, centered in a town overflowing with history, is atmosphere at its best.
The 2ND FLOOR UNIT has a PRIVATE ENTRANCE and STAIRCASE, the entry to which is just large enough to store a bicycle. A FULL KITCHEN (with a DISHWASHER, and ALL DISHES AND UTENSILS) opens to a small dining area and OPEN LIVING ROOM-- complete with CABLE TV (flat screen), and a fold-out FULL-SIZED SOFA BED. Smaller adjacent rooms contain: a mid-sized bathroom with TUB AND SHOWER, rear utility room with WASHER AND DRYER, and a master bedroom boasting a QUEEN-SIZED platform bed and MEMORY-FOAM MATTRESS. The unit as a whole washes in light from the 8-foot tall picture windows that look out onto historic Division Street every afternoon.

There is no breakfast included with this rental, but the unit is directly above a bagel shop and next door to a (VERY GOOD AND RECOMMENDED) coffee shop. Roughly 10-12 restaurants are within the immediate vicinity (on Division St/side/surrounding), and another 15-20 are less than a 5 min drive, or 15 min bike ride.
Street parking is necessary, however, excluding Jessie James Days (in early September) or during any "sporadic" large community events, finding a spot within a block of the unit is rarely difficult. Permit free parking is available on most side streets and a free public parking lot is directly behind the building.

Guest access

Guests have access to the entire apartment- this is not a "shared living arrangement". That includes all kitchen utensils and the washer/dryer inside the unit.

Interaction with guests

I currently live/travel between 3 different states for work. This is where I live when in Minnesota, and if it is being rented, I am elsewhere. However, Keller Williams, two doors down from the unit entrance, can assist renters with any needs they have during their stay.

1- This is a NON-SMOKING apartment.
3- Please leave the residence as you found it. All dishes used must be washed and replaced in the cabinet.
4- We ask that you throw all used towels into the washer and start the load before you leave.
5- All of the other used linens need to be placed- in one pile- on the floor of the bedroom.
6- (few) NOISE CONSIDERATIONS- The apartment is in a commercial district and above a bagel store, so noise is rarely an issue. Still, we ask you be respectful of the neighboring apartments and not-- for a completely hypothetical example-- blast music at top volume with the windows open at midnight... etc...
7- Street Parking is necessary (but usually available within a block of the unit).
8- RELAX and live an INSPIRED LIFE as much as possible during your STAY :)

****AN IMPORTANT NOTE: TV/Internet service is being installed. Until that wait is over (should be completed by 2/25/16), wireless internet is available in the coffee shop and bagel shops below the unit.

We had a wonderful stay in Kate's apartment. The apartment is actually nicer and more spacious than it appears in the pictures. The bed is very comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped (though we barely used it). The location is perfect. Right on Division Street in downtown Northfield between Tandem Bagels and Blue Monday Coffee House....and steps away from Carleton College where we were dropping our son. We will definitely be back and recommend it highly to others.

This looks to be a great apartment in a great location. Unfortunately, due to water damage, the host had to cancel our reservation. Kate went the extra mile try to find us another option -- a house that was for sale and had a bed in one of the rooms -- but we opted to stay in a hotel instead.

The apartment was great and just as described regarding the downtown location and accessibility. I was coming into town for work further south and did not want to battle the Minneapolis traffic daily. The people in Northfield were very accommodating and a joy to experience for the week. The apartment itself had a washer/dryer which came in handy with the heat wave going through that week, along with a full kitchen which always makes traveling better than staying in many of the hotels.

Response from Kate:
Thanks for the suggestions. We are in process to replace the lock as well as the greetings. We have been there for other guests personally which is our plan however a better back up plan is in the works! Thanks for your input.

What a lovely (and convenient!) place to stay! We were there during a heat wave, so we much appreciated the central air conditioning... other highlights included walking to the food coop to buy food, and then making simple dishes in the well-appointed kitchen, to take to the various potlucks we were attending during graduation weekend... Kate's helper Casey met us at the front door with the key, and was available in case we needed anything. Everything was walking distance, and we had very attractive and comfortable accommodations -- a great example of what makes airbnb so awesome!

Great little apartment in the heart of Northfield. Kate was an amazing host, and the space suited our needs completely.
