Sunny 1- BR with Queen, plus full sofa-sleeper, cot, and also air mattresses in LR. Full kitchen, full bath is upstairs. Half bath just added on first floor. AC in bedroom and living room. Washer/dryer, yard, parking. Near UMN, hospitals, Greenway, playground, light rail, bus, and shopping. Wi-Fi & Chromecast-enabled tv. No smoking, no pets.
Built in 1900, this little home will give you privacy and the ability to cook for yourself. It is "lightly" furnished. Upstairs is my own bedroom (usually no access), yours, and the bathroom with shower and a huge clawfoot tub. Downstairs is a well-equipped kitchen, a small half bath, a dining room/study, and the living room. I know the bed is comfy...but THE SOFA BED MAY BE BEST FOR KIDS! There are also two air mattresses in the LR closet, fill them using the small red air pump, plug in to your car's outlet. Pump is in the basement, I think, or front closet. In the Q bedroom, there is a cot, too. Laundry facilities are in the basement, and there's a partly-fenced yard. Parking is available on the premises or on the street. This is not a renovated house, it is very simple. So expect cute, but not modern! You might find food in the kitchen, but please bring or buy your own, except for coffee.
There is free Wi-Fi, but no cable or dish. You can bring a cable or use Wi-Fi to connect your phone or computer to the 32" TV in the living room. We are using Chromecast on the living room tv, which accesses anything on your computer to project programs. You can utilize your netflix , "Dish Anywhere," or other subscriptions you may have on your phone, tablet or laptop. Just download the free Chromecast app, and "cast" them to the receiver on the LR tv.
I do not plan to be in the house very much while guests are there, so the entire house and premises are yours...except my bedroom! Linens and towels provided. BYO toiletries please...but "emergency" ones are available in the bathroom.

I'm still living between Minneapolis and Milwaukee; my co host Lennon has agreed to help my guests in case of any questions. She lives right down the street and knows Minneapolis very well. You will probably have the whole house to yourself, unless I let you know in advance.
Eat at The Wienery during your stay! Featured on "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives" show, and winner of "Best Hot Dog in Minneapolis." Made-to-order breakfast all day (11:00 am to 8:00 pm) on Cedar just south of Riverside. It's my son-in-law's place.
For African, Latin American, and Nepalese, try Lake Street, just 5 blocks south.
People like the Cafe Racer and Birchwood Inn, right on 25th St.
- My neighbors are friendly to me when I am there, and I would like to keep them that way. Please be respectful, NO PETS, no smoking, and not too much noise. Extra guests will be noticed.
