Scott & Jenna once lived in the building, and are always available by cell phone, just like a front desk of a hotel. We are _not_ absentee owners! (We have been property managers for over ten years, and have helped people in just about every situation!) '

Please note we have multiple properties! If this place doesn't sound perfect, call us (612-701-0900 between 8 AM and 10PM Central) / email to find out if another listing may work. We have smart phones to respond promptly. We regret we can't keep all calendars up to date, due to multiple spaces and multiple sites.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1999

                          About the owner: Scott and Jenna have owned this building since moving into it when purchased in the 1990s. We have enjoyed providing a beautiful and inspiring space to others for over ten years. Now it is all new with new furniture and appliances (just like Scott no longer has a beard, change happens!), and we hope you can enjoy it.

                          Why the Owner Chose Minneapolis:
                          This building is a triplex, and originally functioned as our primary home. Continual requests to rent in this area on a short term basis made us decide to convert this and other spaces to a vacation / short term rental.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
                          Location, location, location is key for the property. It is close to the University and Downtown and the famous Mississippi River and the falls that Father Hennepin surveyed in the 1800s. Although very convenient to activities, you will feel that you are in a University-oriented city neighborhood. Note this is not a resort or city high rise condominium! This building was built over 100 years ago!
