Why Jeanine Farrell chose Kingfield

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.

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.

Rock climbing- indoors and out, historic paddleboat rides along the river and inside the lock and dam, amazing urban hikes along the river, and the country's most extensive park system. Must boast about our proximity to the MOA- yes, the world's largest shopping experience, soon to be doubled in size! We are surrounded by small, intimate restaurants, boutiques, wine bars and coffeeshops, and there are 5 farmer's markets within a few miles!

Charming

  • 5 of 5

The Tree Top is very charming and cozy. We were intown visiting our daughter. The location is fantastic because you can walk, bike or drive to coffee houses, restaurants, lakes, etc. Lake Harriet is about a mile walk. If you bring your bikes, Minneapolis is very bike-friendly. The apartment was very clean, quiet, and thankfully, has AC for those unusually hot days! Highly recommend!

A beautifully decorated apartment that feels like home.

  • 5 of 5

Such a lovely place to stay! Rented this for my adult children for a week long visit and they loved it so much they want to come back for a longer stay. Thank you Jeanine and John for making such a welcoming and comfortable space. It is clear a great deal of thought went into setting up and decorating this cozy place. Well equipped kitchen, lovely bathroom, cozy bedrooms. It feels like home!

Wonderful 2 bed loft apt

  • 5 of 5

My husband and adult daughter stayed for five nights. Definitely need a car. The house was conveniently located - we went to Mall of America, Paisley Park, Twins game, Minnehaha Falls, Mills Ruins, Sculptor Park. We walked to restaurants and around the neighborhood and Lake Harriett in the evenings. We played Scrabble and on rainy days we watched Netflix. We loved the comfy of our home away from home!
