About Jami Stufflebeam
We moved to Rochester in 2014 when one of our sons was undergoing cancer treatments at Mayo. It took 16 months, 4 different chemo regimens, a stem cell transplant, and radiation, but as of January 2015, he was finally in remission! We had a very difficult time finding short-term rental property that fit our family of 5. Therefore, we decided to purchase a property that would work for our family while in Rochester, but would work for other families when we no longer had a need.
Why Jami Stufflebeam chose Rochester
We wanted a property in a newer, family oriented neighborhood away from the downtown area so it could truly be a safe haven and provide a feeling of normalcy. Many of our guests are enduring emotional and challenging circumstances. We didn't want their chosen lodging to add to the stress either in location or amenities. If there are any improvements we can make or items we can add to bring the feeling of home to the forefront, please let us know and we will do our best to add for future guests.
What makes this House unique
This house was designed with families in mind. Entertainment room in the basement with an air hockey table and Pub table for games and cards. 2 Smart TV's for Netflix, Hulu, and Skype and Wi-Fi throughout the house. Fenced yard with 6' privacy fence. High Efficiency Extra-large Capacity Washer and Dryer. Stainless appliances. Both an Electric and a Gas Grill with outdoor seating. Fully adjustable Master Bed with Luxury linens.

Overall great, clean and well maintained place to stay
House was clean throughout (except for grills) and well-equipped. We were thankful to find a modern place that allowed our dogs. Most beds were too soft for us. The one in master bedroom was comfortable on one side only - and we didn't realize until we were leaving that it included massage options! Tips on using the TV would have been helpful, but we managed by using our own Netflix membership. When my sister's new dog slipped out of the house and ran, neighbors were great at helping me catch him and return us "home." Access to fenced yard was down steps from deck, but using main level of house only required one step from outside. Lower level could have used a dehumidifier or stronger bath vent, but we were thankful to have its shelter when storm with rain and high winds came through.
Thank you for the feedback as we are always trying to improve and your comments will help us to do so! We have already taken steps to address some of the areas you mention above (like adding a dehumidifier in the basement and adding additional notes to our hospitality site with more tips and tricks for using the TV). I should point out that there is a gate entrance to the fenced in area at the front of the house with no steps required. Thank you for taking such great care of our place. We would welcome your family back anytime.
Great family place
Great home for a family trip. Close enough to town. Nice safe neighborhood. Very responsive host. We had a couple of issues which were promptly addressed. Would certainly recommend to others.
Two Weeks in Rochester
Had all the comforts of home. Would stay here again if I come to Rochester.
Wonderful, clean, accommodating
Our experience at this house was great! The owners and caretaker were very quick to respond when we had any questions. We stayed 3 days with kids and it was so much better than a hotel room. The beds were comfy and they provided all the extras we needed. It was clean, comfy, and fun.
Very clean and comfortable! This house really does have all the comforts of home.
We rented this house for a family reunion. Four couples stayed here comfortably. We had additional family members over for dinner and there was plenty of room. The house is lovely and well stocked. The neighborhood is beautiful and quiet. Jami responds quickly to any questions or needs.
Great home for family!
We used this home for extra space for a large family gathering near Rochester. It was perfect for us. It was very clean and comfortable. Easily accommodated 4 couples. Located in a very nice neighborhood with lots of young families. I would absolutely recommend this property to others.
