Why Bryan Vlasak chose Harrison

Walkable & great for biking This neighborhood shines in Minneapolis for its natural beauty accompanied with incredible proximity to some of the city's premier attractions. Being equal in travel time (5 minute drive, 11 minute bike ride) to the Walker art center/Sculpture park and Cedar Lake Point Beach, its a unique blend of vibrancy and quietude. Hedged by parks and lakes the neighborhood retains much of its old charm and has small town feel with magnificent downtown views. Conveniently 1 minute from Bryn Mawr Business district where you will find good coffee at Cuppa Java, a Market with organic options, Bryn Mawr Pizza, and other great shops. Now a 3 min bike ride to the new Utepils Brewing Company

What makes this house unique

In the summer we have gardens on property and outside grill area. this house has its own private yard with fence.

Quaint Home with Two Bathrooms

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed at the property from July 31st - August 2nd. Usually, the weather would be extremely hot for these days, but the weather was great. I'm only stating this because we didn't experience what it would be like with the window a/c units in hot weather. The place is really really cute and Bryan does a great job having amenities available. The beds were soooo comfortable!! I'm surprised I left mine. We felt very comfortable in the neighborhood and even walked back from Target Field one night. The lakes are in close proximity and we visited a couple lakes while there. Bryan was great about answering questions in a very timely manner. There were some things that I asked about even though it was printed out on the "house info" paper when you first come in. Even though there were two of us, the two bathrooms were great for us, so we could take our time getting ready. The only downside was that the space for showering was kind of small. My friend and I both felt this way. It wasn't a deal breaker, but it's something to note. Overall experience was great.

Perfect and quaint!

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect "crash pad" for 1 night with a group of 7! So many beds! The house is older but it's very charming. It was impeccably clean! It was in a cute neighborhood and easy interstate access. Bryan was responsive, and we would definitely stay here again! We all loved it and wished we could have stayed there vs moving to a hotel to join more family!

*** There are 2 flights of stairs to get up to the bedrooms. They are a tad narrow. This was a bit tricky (scary) for my older parents, one who has a bad knee and the other broken ribs. They made it work by going slow and sideways. So keep this in mind if you have people who may have difficulty!

Thank you Bryan! Your home is lovely!

This is a great house close to everything

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 5 days in Minneapolis and enjoyed this house very much. Bryan is a great host and supplies absolutely everything you could possibly need. This is a beautiful old home with wooden floors, plenty of windows, a great kitchen, 2 bathrooms with claw feet tubs, and everything was super clean. The outside is wonderful and the neighborhood is really nice. There is a great restaurant just a couple blocks away plus a fully stocked market, coffee shop and gas station just a couple blocks further. We have stayed in a lot of VRBO rentals but this one was one of our favorites and we would hope to stay here again when returning to Minneapolis.

Perfect in every way. Quaint and filled with character. A true home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we pulled up out front we were all smiles. The front garden is very welcoming and we couldn't wait to get inside. The interior did not disappoint. We spent the first ten minutes walking around taking photos. There was plenty of room for all of us and the two younger girls loved their private connected rooms, one of which had a hammock.

The home is located on a quiet street, in walking distance to restaurants and a cool coffee shop. It is a quick drive to the downtown area as well.

Bryan is an awesome host for many reasons. First, he quickly responds to all questions. Second, his home is super clean and well-maintained. Third, his attention to detail is incredible!
