About James or Cyrila Pycha: MAYO LAKE RETREAT
Jim and Cyrila Pycha with their son Matthew and daughter Angela live in Hawaii, specifically the Garden Island called Kaua`i. Jim was a Mayo Clinic patient cared for the best medical onocolgy team. He is doing very well now. During our 4.5 months here in Rochester, we became enamored with Mayo Clinic's amazing organized system, it's efficiency, Rochester the "Med City", it's people, the culture and the different seasons! We truly felt the "Aloha spirit" here!

The place was perfect. It was well furnished, clean and very comfortable. It was a great location too. It was in a quiet neighborhood but close to downtown and the Mayo Clinic. We'd love to come back!
Beautiful Spot near Mayo and Hospitals
This lovely ultramodern home was a delightful place to begin recovery after surgery at St Mary's hospital. Everything was exactly as described, with great cookware, plentiful tableware, and high-end appliances. Beautiful window treatments. All three TV's and other electronics are top-notch. Location is very convenient for visits to either the Mayo Clinic buildings or the St Mary's hospital campus. The four bikes provided are very nice, and having the double garage with opener was great. For these beautiful accomodations, you will find that the price is quite reasonable.
An exceptional house
This house was great. Accommodations were excellent, very comfortable, very clean, great neighborhood. The owners have really thought of everything to make an extended stay a good experience. Good location, about a 15 minute drive to Mayo Clinic. We stayed in this house for 7 weeks, and it was a major reason for our actually enjoying our stay in Rochester, despite daily medical treatments. I would definitely rent this house again.
Excellent place to stay during Mayo treatments. Top to bottom, the owners have thought of everything someone on the mend might need, yet the home is warm and inviting.. Adjustable beds, walk in shower, rocking chairs, throw blankets in the living room, guest bedroom with twins and private bath and last but not least, a 3.5 mile walking path through the woods and around the lake. I walked every day. The experience might have have been better but we are at a loss to figure out how.
Comfortable, cozy and convenient sanctuary!
My husband and I recently spent 5 weeks here while he was undergoing treatment for an aggressive cancer. We couldn't have been more comfortable here. The house is very new and absolutely spotless. There are plenty of towels and sheets and cozy blankets. The living room furniture is the best. So soft and everything reclines. The gas fireplace was so nice to have during the winter.
We were very close to grocery stores and restaurants as well as a bookstore and clothing stores. Also we were 10-12 min from Mayo, which was important. Our girls came to visit for a weekend and they loved the house. We spent some lovely times cooking together in the convenient and well stocked kitchen. Did I mention the pantry? Oh my! It's huge and amazing!
I really can't say enough good things about our stay. Jim and Cyrila were so easy to work with and Ramie who is the contact person in Rochester was available and responsive for questions.
You will love this home!!
This is a fantastic place to stay. The owners have designed it with Mayo Clinic patients in mind and have thought of everything. It is homey and comfortable, easy access and very well furnished. We have stayed in other rental homes (at the beach on the east coast) and while they were nice, their kitchens were not as well furnished as the "Mayo house". The open kitchen/living room is a plus....I can work in the kitchen and still keep an eye on my patient. Also, it is a quick, easy drive to the Clinic. We have been here for about 2 1/2 months and it has been so good to have a "comfy home" to come to at the end of the day! Kudos to Jim and Cyrila Pycha!
Destination Medical Center
In 2013, Governor Mark Dayton signed a bill commonly known as Destination Medical Center. The main purpose of this law is to make sure Rochester will always be a global destination because of the city's healthcare advancements. It will also increase Mayo Clinic's tax base and business and economic growth throughout the state of Minnesota.This law will expand the Mayo Clinic campus, University of Minnesota Rochester campus, the Mayo Civic Center building and create 35,000 to 45,000 jobs for the city. This law will also focus on enhancing sports and recreation, retail, dining, entertainment, arts and culture in the city. The 20-year plan projects investments of over 6.5 billion dollars into the local area with the goal of helping transform the city into a global bio-tech hub.
Arts and culture
A number of Rochester buildings are on the National Register of Historic Places, including the historic Chateau Theatre, which in 2015 was bought by the city for preservation and Avalon Music, formerly a hotel important in the local civil rights movement.
The Rochester Art Center is located downtown, just south of the Mayo Civic Center.
In the summer, every Thursday the city puts on "Thursdays on First" where local restaurants and artists can set up booths all along First Avenue downtown Rochester. There are a few stages where bands perform and provide entertainment. There are also a number of street musicians sitting on walls or standing on the sidewalks.
The oldest cultural arts institution in the community, Rochester Symphony Orchestra & Chorale was founded in 1919 as a professional performing arts organization called the Rochester Orchestra. Its earliest ensemble — the Lawler-Dodge Orchestra — was founded in 1912 as a volunteer orchestra, driven by Daisy Plummer, wife of world famous Mayo Clinic physician, Dr. Henry Plummer, and directed by Harold Cooke. In early years, the Orchestra appeared in the former Chateau Theatre where they performed background music for silent movies.
