This newly updated flat welcomes you into an airy and bright common room for gathering and sharing while you're here. Tucked in the back, past the kitchen, through a short hallway are two private bedrooms, divided by a shared bath. Fresh, relaxed, and comfortable, you will feel right at home! Take a look through the photos and you'll find a floor plan of the space.
The cozy, well-lit common room is the place to gather and share while you enjoy your stay. The space includes a soft Pottery Barn sofa, a reading nook with an oversized leather chair, a communal table, television, and a fireplace. Grab a good book, queue up the Netflix, pull out a board game, this room has space for it all!
The efficient galley kitchen is set up with all of the essential tools you'll need to craft a home-cooked meal, make a hot cup of coffee/tea, or reheat yummy leftovers from a local hot-spot.
If you're a coffee lover, you've come to the right place! Make an individual cup with the Nespresso machine or enough to share with the french press. There is tea, if that's your fancy. And, if none of the above are fancy enough the best Minneapolis coffee shops are within walking distance (Five Watt, Alma, Spyhouse and more)!
Two quiet bedrooms have plenty of space for your luggage, a full-size closet each, and can be lit to your desired level with bedside lamps, blackout shades and curtains. The larger bedroom features a queen memory foam mattress, the smaller bedroom a pillow top mattress. Both beds are dressed in luxurious linens and stacked high with pillows. If needed, there is a tall, Queen Air Mattress to accommodate additional guests (6 max) in the cozy, quiet living room (please inquire and we will set it up).
The bathroom is stocked with basic toiletries, has plenty of towel bar space, and a shower with a tub.
Be sure to checkout the art in each room for menus to some of the best local eateries, coasters from breweries within a 3-mile radius, and info about great Minneapolis sightseeing and events.
