Perfect Reunion Spot

  • 5 of 5

Our family came into town from all over the USA to celebrate our sons wedding. This home was the perfect place to gather for our family of ten. We were accessible to everything. The home was comfortable and felt like home. We strongly recommend this home to anyone staying in the Minneapolis area!!

Great place and great location. Lots of restaurants and downtown is very close. It was perfect for the 9 adults we had. The owners are easy to work with. Beds and bedding are excellent. I would highly recommend this property.

Wonderful Home - Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband I and traveled to Minneapolis with our adult children and friends to celebrate our parents 60th wedding anniversary. We could not have picked a better place to stay. The home itself is spacious and suited our needs very well. We were pleasantly surprised with the beautiful renovations. Our children could walk to restaurants and bars and downtown is a quick Uber ride. We were able to barbecue and have extended family over for dinner and everyone commented on what a perfect location we chose. Angie and Matt, thank you for your gracious hospitality. It was a lovely respite coming from St Petersburg, FL after hurricane Irma. We will definitely stay again for our next trip.

Good location, great space!

  • 5 of 5

It was exactly what we needed to house our family. The open concept living area was great. There were a few small maintenance items that could use some attention. They weren't worth losing a star over but maybe a bit closer management inspection. Overall it was a great home away from home. Thanks

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We used the house as a central location for our daughters wedding. It was close by to everything we needed. We walked to a Twins game, Mary Tyler Moore Statue, and river front. The house had everything we needed. The park across street was enjoyable for our 90 year old mother. I recommend both Ray J's and Conga had great meals at both. Enjoyed Panthers game and wings at Ray J's. We would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the detailed and glowing review Matt!! Our entire family LOVES the RayJ's wings -- so glad you found that spot! Next time give Brasa or Butcher Block a whirl, those are our other 2 favorites within a few short blocks!! Thanks for staying at one of our MPLSvr homes! We sincerely hope you return soon! Angie
