Lovely Uptown Mpls apartment!

Located in: Minneapolis
Welcome to the vibrant, diverse Uptown neighborhood of Minneapolis! Located just a few blocks from Lake Calhoun, Lake & Hennepin and Lyn-Lake shopping districts, this charming, vintage, non-smoking apartment (located within our duplex home; completely self-contained with a separate entrance) is available for rent year round.

Please note that we welcome guests of all ages, nationalities, races, religions (or lack thereof), languages and sexual orientation. No discrimination here, no profiling - just a warm welcome to all!

The apartment's entrance is through the back door on the alley side of the house, where guests have a dedicated off-street parking space big enough for a small to mid-size car, along with use of a lovely backyard with patio, table, chairs, and gas grill. The apartment has lots of board games, toys for the little ones, eclectic original art, and a small flat-screen television (basic network stations and a few cable channels, nothing fancy). High-speed wifi throughout for your streaming and internet needs, and a personalized guide to the neighborhood, with lots of restaurant recommendations and directions. New handheld remote-controlled heat, air conditioning and dehumidifier provide instant, silent comfort throughout the apartment no matter the season.

The apartment comprises the right half of the main floor of our duplex home and features a bedroom, living/dining room, small full bathroom, and kitchen. The serene bedroom features a queen-size bed with pillow-top mattress, memory foam topper, overhead fan, blackout curtains, and 100% cotton sheets and quilts and towels. Plenty of extra pillows, from memory foam to lightweight and soft.

The living/dining room contains a dining nook (seating for four), a children's corner with toys and books, an overhead fan and a fold-down double futon couch. The kitchen is fully supplied with pots and pans, dishes, a full-sized refrigerator and gas stove/oven, microwave, coffeemaker, French press, toaster and utensils. (No dishwasher.) If traveling with a family or two couples, note that the living/dining room and bedroom can be closed off for privacy, while the bathroom can be accessed from both rooms.

The apartment has two closets and plenty of drawer space. Extras such as a hair dryer, iron and ironing board are included. Flower gardens surround both the house and the boulevard in season.

We love and welcome children of all ages. There are lots of toys and books for them in the apartment, along with baby supplies - a portable pack 'n play crib, a small stroller, a bouncy seat and a high chair - so you don't have to lug them along. Noise (crying babies, for example) doesn't bother us.

The Uptown and Lyn-Lake neighborhoods are renowned for their wide variety of restaurants, theaters, movies, shopping (both small indie shops and national branches), grocery stores both upscale and midscale, bars, music and people-watching. The apartment's "walk score" is 97 out of 100, which classifies it as a "walker's paradise."

If you like the great outdoors, you'll be in heaven. Bike trails, walking and running paths, sailing, canoe, kayak, paddleboarding, cross-country skiing, ice skating, snowshoeing, swimming and no fewer than ten gyms and yoga studios are all located within a few blocks. We are located three blocks in all directions from multiple bus lines, allowing quick access anywhere you wish to go in the metro area. The apartment is easily accessible via light rail and bus from the airport, so if you'd like to avoid the cost of a rental car during your visit to Minneapolis, it's entirely possible.

Minneapolis is a beautiful city year-round, and we invite you to come enjoy it in all seasons. We love sharing our neighborhood with others and would be happy to help you with any questions you might have.

In addition to the apartment, please feel free to use the back yard with its patio, table and chairs, flower and vegetable gardens and gas grill. If you're arriving in winter with children, we have lots of sleds and saucers for your use, and we can give you directions to good nearby sledding hills.

Interaction with guests

I am a completely unobtrusive host (I myself dislike the hovering host syndrome) but happily available should you have questions or need anything, from restaurant and theater recommendations to insider tips on the best museums, places to take your children, runs around the lakes, and general sightseeing.
