Great house and quiet location.

  • 5 of 5
This property was perfect for our family. We enjoyed both time together and space where we needed it. The house had all the stuff you needed in kitchen and being able to do laundry was a plus. Snow service was good and on time. On the outskirts of the Twin Cities, we were close enough to family, but in a very quiet area. There is a mall and grocery store near by. We had six and everyone had enough room. Beds were great, heating was good. I bet the summer is better with a big backyard, covered in snow for us. It had a nice patio and gas BBQ. Fireplace was great and even had wood for the first night. There is a fireplace store near by which sold good wood for $5. Don't use gas station wood. The house was clean and had plenty of towels, with girls that is a big plus. Overall I give this place and owner high praise.

Perfect family house

  • 5 of 5
The house was perfect - charming, quiet yet conveniently located, and roomy. It was even better than I had hoped for.

My sister was getting married in the Twin Cities, and my husband and I were able to stay here with my brother and sister and their families, and my parents. The house is on a large yard on a cul-de sac off a quiet, wooded road that lulls you into feeling that you are in the country. There were two convenient playgrounds nearby, a historic house and mill site with a park a few blocks away, and a convenience store and two places to get ice cream within walking distance!

The house itself is lovely, with thoughtful 1930s and 40s elements, and the hammock and ponds in the yard were a treat. It was also conveniently near a Super-Target and a full-service grocery store. I would absolutely rent this house again.

Great House!!!

  • 5 of 5
This very nice home was as described! Exeptionally clean and well maintained! Excellent neighborhood and plenty of restauants and shopping nearby! Located on a culdasac so no traffic or street noise. There was a really nice park up the street for the kids to play in. Kitchen was well stocked with all you need but the food! Plenty of room! We slept 6 adults and 3 children easily! Never felt like we were tripping over ourselves. Very relaxing!!! Owner and caretaker were easily contacted! Would rent again in a minute!!!

Great Property

  • 4 of 5
The property was everything that was mentioned. Great location,quiet neighborhood,close to restaurants and shopping. The house layout and description was accurate. The upkeep of the property could of been better as we felt like we had to clean some when we arrived. The items on the shelves and inside drawers were thrown around messy. The first impression was spiderwebs across the garage doors pulling up to the house. Other then the upkeep the house was enjoyable.

Garden Club Visit

  • 5 of 5
Our group consisted of 8 gals. We found the place be all that it advertised as and more. We had the most relaxing time. The home is spacious and clean. Dinner was out on the patio and breakfast in the large dining room. I plan approximately 5-7 events each year and this unit was one of the best. I speak for all that attended this weekend.

Kevin caretaker and Jim owner were so very helpful.

We visited the Arboretum at the University in Chasta. Which should be a must see for any gardener.

Thank you Jim and Kevin.
