This unique property is a hundred-year-old farmhouse right in the city! Perfect for weddings, family reunions and Girlfriend Getaways (Guy Getaways too). Staying at Grandma's is like taking a step back in time. The home has been decorated to reflect the nostalgic feeling of visiting Grandma's House but with the added comfort of modern amenities like Pillow-Top mattresses, a Vintage Comic Book Game Room, big screen TV's and a Sauna. There are 2 playrooms and 2 of the bedrooms are themed for the kids (Star Wars and American Girl*). With a high chair, pack-n-play, stroller and a variety of toys it is perfect for families with small children and grandchildren.
It is centrally located just West of the Mall of America (only 3 miles away) easily accessible, right off Lyndale Ave. S. Tons of shopping and restaurants within walking distance and right on the bus line. The Woodlake Nature center and park are within walking distance too.
From room to room you will be taken back-in-time to all the fun you had when you were a kid, and be able to share that with your friends and family. There are 5 bedrooms, a pull-out in the living room, and a futon in the basement (9 beds total). Each floor has a bathroom; a full bath upstairs, half bath on the main floor, and 3/4 bath with a shower in the basement.
The basement has two areas, one room has a family room with TV, couch, poker table, roulette wheel, board games, and Air Hockey. And the other room is the Vintage Comic Book Game Room with a Ping Pong Table, Foosball and Xbox/TV.
In the spring, summer and fall enjoy the spacious 3-season porch overlooking the fenced-in backyard. At the end of the day relax in the sauna!

NEW for 2018:
We are always striving to improve our vacation home and provide the best customer travel experience possible. Based on the feedback and review from past guest these are a few of the improvements for 2018!
Added an air conditioning unit to the attic playroom.
Reviewed and updated our cleaning protocol to insure consistency between all our cleaners.
Converted the den into another sleeping area. As of now it has a curtain, but will have a door added soon.
Look for updates on additions as well as we seek to continually provide the most comfortable stay!
*Note: For groups that do not have children (like Girlfriend Getaways, Guys Groups) the home has several rooms that are "Convertible" rooms where we remove most of the toys and change the decor before you arrive.
