Why Jeanine Farrell chose Powderhorn
Located close to Minneapolis' famous chain of lakes, Uptown, and just a few blocks from the Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway, one of the country's longest continuous systems of public urban parkways. Lake Harriet is just around the corner, connected to a peaceful bird and wildlife sanctuary and a beautiful rose garden. The neighborhood boasts an impressive range of world restaurants- Spanish, Cuban, Vietnamese, Mexican, Asian, Middle Eastern and Malaysian cuisines. We are a mile from Eat Street, an international smorgasbord of restaurants. A 20 minute walk to Uptown which has great shopping, art movie houses, and terraces with great happy hours. We live near 5 Farmer's Markets- and not too far from the Saint Paul one! Two personal trainers -Thai Body Work and Pilates -live down our street, they're wonderful! There are a handful of trusted babysitters ready at a moment's notice. KingField borders fabulous Linden Hills, a charming small shops 'village' on the other side of Lake Harriet, Lyn/Lake, another great urban gem full of dozens of innovative restaurants, comedy/improv club and movie theaters; Eat Street, the name speaks for itself, is a handful of blocks north from your apartment. Uptown, offers all of the above. Aforementioned Grand Rounds bike path leads you to the Mississippi river, our unique Minnehaha waterfall fed by fast moving Minnehaha creek- all complemented by more restaurants!

Clean, quiet, perfect, close to restaurants...great for my short stay.
Very comfortable and just as advertised!
We had a very nice stay at Jeanine and John's upstairs apartment. Comfortable for the 5 of us, several fun areas to sit and talk. It was quiet, beds were comfortable, the kitchen had everything we wanted including coffee and a welcome chocolate bar, several quality furnishings in this older home which is obviously well maintained and cared for. John even delivered some delicious pastries for my 60th birthday-much appreciated! The neighborhood has a lot of charm, we enjoyed walking around the nearby lakes and just relaxing. They obviously put a lot of work into making the apartment a fun place. We only wished we could have stayed longer!
You made this an especially good morning for us! To wake up to such a generous and appreciative review, plus, you were absolutely wonderful guests. We too wish you could have stayed longer with us! Hope to host you again in the not too distant future,
Jeanine and Hohn
Nice, clean, and roomy apartment.
Jeanine was very helpful and easy to communicate with via e-mail and phone. The apartment is very well appointed and comfortable. The coffee and wine were very thoughtful. We hope to use this place often!
Thanks so much Dan, we also really enjoyed having you here! And we do hope you will visit us again soon!

Beautiful space, great hosts
I reserved John and Jeanine's VRBO apartment for my brother and sister-in-law, visiting me in Minneapolis. I knew they would love it, and they did. The space itself is just lovely and kept beautifully. The neighborhood is near Minneapolis' most beautiful city lake (a short walk, although this was in January) and several interesting restaurants. But John and Jeanine may be the best part of the place. They are warm and welcoming and, if you're lucky enough to spend some time with them, both interesting and interested.
How kind of you to write such a warm and glowing review! It's very much appreciated, I can assure you...we so much enjoyed hosting your interesting family, they were a delight to host!

Beautiful apartment in quiet, convenient location!!!
We had a wonderful stay with Jeanine and John. The apartment is lovely and had everything our family of 4 needed! Would love to visit again in the summer to be able to make use of the outdoor spaces on the property and the trails nearby.
Thanks so much Anne! You were fabulous, most appreciative guests, dream visitors...We look forward to your return visit!
