"Our son who lives in the Twin cities, with his girlfriend, was unable to make it back home for Thanksgiving. On a whim, we decided to bring the entire family to Minnesota instead. There was a problem: His tiny kitchen and small apartment were not going to be able to accommodate our family of multiple generations... a family who enjoys hanging out in the kitchen and cooking together. Hotels were not an option. What would Thanksgiving be without a home cooked meal? And then we came across Ohage house. From the minute we entered the front door with expansive hallways, high ceilings, a dramatic staircase, we knew we were in for a treat. Elegant, yet homey. Two separate parlors allowing the comfort of curling up with a great book, or playing board games. A surprise lower level with bar, pool table, pinball games and cozy room for watching television made our grandchildren repeat over and over, "best vacation ever"The large dining room with it's round table, allowed for excellent conversation and plenty of platters of food. . Wonderful second floor with spacious bedrooms and very comfortable beds. The kitchen was amazing and beyond what we would have expected. well stocked with every tool needed to create and complete a wonderful dinner.We walked to the science museum, we played football in the park across the street, but mostly just enjoyed the precious time we were able to spend in this wonderful historic home, catching up with each other and listening to the most amazing play lists of eclectic music our hosts provided through a fantastic sound system through much of the house. The convenience of this location being within walking distance to everything, entertainment, great restaurants. The home itself is spotless and clean. We knew that our hosts were always a phone call away. We all had a hard time leaving this most magical home and would love to see it in summer."
