Why Jeanine Farrell chose Minneapolis

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!

What makes this apartment unique

Our duplex has so many large yet comfortable rooms! Four finished cozy porches, bay windows that overlook front and back yards, plenty of built ins and closets, multiple work spaces, and a lovely landscaped front/back yard.

We are surrounded by small, intimate restaurants, boutiques, wine bars and coffeeshops, and there are 5 farmer's markets within a few miles!

Absolutely charming home and perfect location!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time spent here!! It was quiet, peaceful, and very beautiful! Each room is comfortable, and the hosts were very helpful and accommodating to our needs! They even had chocolate, wine, and coffee ready for us-- what more could one ask for? Great restaurants nearby, and a lovely walk to Lake Harriet! We would highly recommend this home to two couples or a family wanting a lovely stay in Minneapolis!

simply wonderful!

What a lovely apartment in an absolutely perfect location! I've lived in this area of Minneapolis before, and knew that the location of this VRBO apartment cannot be beat - a lovely walk to restaurants, shops and to Lake Harriet. What I didn't expect was the quality of the furnishings and of the extensive book and artifact collections displayed throughout the space - I wish I could have stayed longer in order to enjoy them all!

Cozy, comfortable, awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. We felt like we were home. Amenities were perfect. I had to work for few days of our stay, and wifi was great. My favorite was the kitchen. Love the pots and pans. Apt is very tastefully decorated. For folks with young kid, the second bedroom would work great. It has a twin bed in addition to the queen bed. Good amount of dresser and wardrobe storage for longer stays. Some very good restaurants in walking distances. Quick access to Lake Harriet and Lake Calhoun which connects to more lakes and river pathway (Grand Rounds) for long distance runners and riders. Will definitely like to stay here in our future Minneapolis visits.

Great home base in south Minneapolis

  • 5 of 5

Loved our one week stay at the Sylvan retreat. Reasonably priced, very clean and well equipped second floor of house. On street parking worked fine, only had to park across the street once, otherwise were right in front of the house. Fully equipped kitchen with full sized refrigerator, gas stove. Comfortable beds, nice sitting room and living room in addition to dining room. Big shower. Lovely french bakery a couple blocks south and plenty of other restaurants in the neighborhood. Short walk to Lakes Harriet and Calhoun. Would definitely stay again.
