Scott and Jenna have owned this building since moving into it when purchased in the 1990s. We have enjoyed providing a beautiful and inspiring space to others for over ten years. Now it is all new with new furniture and appliances (just like Scott no longer has a beard, change happens!), and we hope you can enjoy it.
Scott and Jenna purchased this studio in 1999
This building is a triplex, and originally functioned as our primary home. Continual requests to rent in this area on a short term basis made us decide to convert this and other spaces to a vacation / short term rental.
Location, location, location is key for the property. It is close to the University and Downtown and the famous Mississippi River and the falls that Father Hennepin surveyed in the 1800s. Although very convenient to activities, you will feel that you are in a University-oriented city neighborhood. Note this is not a resort or city high rise condominium! This building was built over 100 years ago!
I stayed for three nights and was extremely pleased with all aspects of my experience. I had booked it before travelling from australia and after a long flight in getting here I was most thankful to meet Scott with the keys and a lot of insider information about Minneapolis and the surrounds. I found it easy to get around due to the close proximity to the bus line, and loved having my own kitchen (particularly to store my Ben & Jerry's, which I had been harboring years-long cravings for). I knew that anything I needed was at the end of a phone, and Scott and Jenna were so nice in making themselves available for anything (and for not making me feel stupid when I called to find out how to operate one of the kitchen appliances!). Overall, it was a wonderful stay and I would highly recommend it to anyone else.

Response: Thanks for your review Lisa. As one of the first guests who came to us from this site, you gave us a good impression of the site! Hey, we figured that appliance out together! It was new to us too! It was a pleasure getting to know you!
We needed lodging for our daughter for a class at the the U of M. We coordinated that with a week of exploring the Twin Cities. We were looking for a spot that would be easy for us to get her to class and to maneuver around the Twin Cities for some relaxing site seeing. It served us really well. The neighborhood was quiet and we had room to park 2 family cars in back. We enjoyed having a car but I think public transportation could have served our needs.
After being given the run around by another property owner on this site in Minneapolis, we were very encouraged by the quick response and the great price.
We arrived on Easter Sunday around 10pm and Scott was there to meet us. The loft was very clean, stocked with plenty of towels (which we managed to use all of... girls are bad about that!), had things that we could use like an ice chest, air mattress, laundry basket, kitchen appliances, etc.
We were more than pleased with our stay. Scott was very informative and gave us a good tour of the place upon arrival. We were close to lots of things and were very thankful for free, safe parking.
Our only complaint was the sleep number beds. They didn't seem to work very well and ended up being kind of uncomfortable. Though they weren't a selling point for us, we were silly and excited about finding out our sleep numbers! Unfortunately, only one bed had a screen to show the sleep number but the screen didn't work. The other bed had a controller that didn't seem to work very well at all. It would be much better to just have good, comfortable, regular ole' mattresses! We would definitely stay again- just with hopes of no sleep number beds! Or maybe we would just sleep on the lush futons!
Happy New year to you both, we had a wonderful holiday and loved staying in your sweet apartment!
Great location, just minutes from downtown. The apartment is well furnished, and has everything you need. Owners are very helpful and only a phone call away. The building houses two other units, but we did not even hear them while we were there. The only negative comments I have are very minor and would not affect my 5 star rating. The negatives are the exterior of the building is a little run down, and there are a lot of stairs to go up to get to the loft. i will definitely look into renting this space again when I travel back to Minneapolis.
Fun, flexible, open loft space. We had a relaxing stay and appreciated the convenience of the kitchenette and living space. Third floor with operating windows let in cool September breeze. Just a few blocks away from playground equipment for children. Good price and no cleaning fee.
My husband and I said here while attending school for 2 weeks. I was close to the University and had a park down the street and several places to eat in walking distance. It is in a quite location, even next to the train I didnt hear it that often. It was stocked with some goodies which was nice. It does have quite a few stairs to climb. Wide open space, but screens were provided to give added privacy :).
We only had one complaint while staying there. The laundry was in the basement which was not bad at all. The renters in the place would leave their laundry in the machines for hours and hours. I ended up doing there laundry and my own. Not my favorite thing to do!!!
We would love to rent from Scott and Jenna again!!!
