Interaction with guests
While we will be accessible via phone and internet, we will leave you alone to enjoy this home on your own.
This is not a "party" neighborhood, although it's a great home to entertain for a dinner party, etc.
Hi, we are Jim and Cindie and we are both business owners and have lived in Minneapolis most of our 46 years of marriage. We are heavily involved in our community and belong to many non-profit boards of directors. Jim is an architectural designer and owns a business that designs retail stores and restaurants all over the world. Cindie owns a complex litigation support firm and she too is involved in work all over the world. These businesses have given us an opportunity to travel the world for both work and pleasure, and we love travel!
Our one and only child, Casey is an up and coming chef in New York City and is currently the Executive Chef at a really wonderful restaurant in the Flatiron District. Jim, who is a very good cook in his own right, likes to think that she acquired her skills from him, but the truth is he is learning lots more from her!
Our Minneapolis home in the beautiful Kenwood neighborhood is very well situated for a great urban stay. We are close to our beloved biking and walking trails, (right out our back gate,) and our wonderful lakes! We're a nice 45 minute walk to downtown and about twenty minutes from the Uptown area with many restaurants and movie theaters as well as live theaters.
Our home in the Catskill Mountains of Upstate New York is about as opposite as we could get! Nestled into the northern Catskills The Chalet is very secluded and surrounded by beautiful trees. There is also a wonderful rushing mountain stream that we call Casey Creek! The house is very unique in its design and construction and has many wonderful features such as a soaring vaulted ceiling of Douglas Fir logs and a great kitchen!
While our home in Minneapolis has been featured in numerous design magazines, our home in the Catskills hasn't YET! (Stay tuned!)
