"The Cottage" is absolutely perfect for 2 but can accommodate up to 4.

"The Cottage" hosts one queen wall bed with quality mattress, which easily stows away during the day allowing guests more living space. A convertible sofa in the main living area provides a comfortable place to relax and watch television or for additional guests to sleep.

The fully equipped kitchen hosts a refrigerator, range, microwave and dishwasher. The full bathroom includes a clothes washer & dryer.

Guests may enjoy a large screen "smart" television with FREE Netflix & plenty of cable channels. High quality, high speed, secure, wireless Internet insure guests stay connected.

A covered porch and patio expand the living space -- outdoors. Guests are sure to enjoy the perennial gardens surrounding the private patio. The patio "living room" w/fire table may become guest's favorite area to relax and enjoy our "Minnesota-Nice" weather.

One garage stall w/electric opener, grill & four bicycles are available for guest use. Plenty of safe, free on-street parking is available in front of the house.

Sweet studio, very fun features including a bed that folds down from the wall, surprisingly comfortable. Gorgeous lighting. Beautiful back patio. Quiet, peaceful, restful. Many thoughtful accommodations and every amenity one might want (including washer and dryer). Everything super clean. Very clear instructions about the place, copious notes about the neighborhood and environs. Fantastic location, great walking to restaurants, markets, Lake Nokomis, Minnehaha Park. Bikes in the garage for renters to use. Overall wonderful experience, thank you Carolyn!

Bright, comfortable, well-equipped

  • 5 of 5

This small, bright, well-appointed space was perfect for a couple. The pictures on the website accurately reflect the tasteful decor and the fact that the property is in excellent condition. What most impressed us was the fact that the owner had thought of -- and included -- everything we needed for our stay, from dishes to coffee filters to laundry detergent to bikes (w/ helmets, locks, and a pump). The outdoor space was comfortable and a nice added bonus.
