About Tim or Lara
We have done a lot of travelling throughout the US and have bicycle toured in Holland, Spain, France, Corsica and Italy. We enjoy meandering, taking roads less travelled, and the joy of discovery-- whether it is an unexpected garden, a new cafe, hearing a new band, or spotting an eagle flying over Lake Calhoun. We enjoy playing host to our renters and introducing visitors to our wonderful city of Minneapolis.
Tim or Lara purchased this apartment in 1995
Why Tim or Lara chose Minneapolis
We fell in love with this house and this wonderful area. Hard to beat the combination of natural and urban amenities of Uptown and Lake Calhoun! NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE RANKED MINNEAPOLIS 4TH in it's TOP 10 WORLDWIDE SUMMER DESTINATIONS FOR 2011, behind Patagonia and Washington's San Juan Islands! UPTOWN is a friendly urban neighborhood, lined with beautiful turn-of-the-century homes as well as a fun collection of stores and coffee shops, fancy to funky restaurants and music clubs which appeal to a wide variety of preferences and tastes.
LAKE CALHOUN provides plenty of opportunities for recreation and relaxation. In Summer there is beaching, biking, blading, walking, sailing, canoing, wind surfing, paddle boarding, and even paddle boats accessible for rent. There are even sailing classes available! Almost like Summer Resort Living!
Winters are Sunny and and Brisk--none of the dreary gray of many Northern Cities. This home has great Sun Access. You can cozy up by the Fireplace or just enjoy a nice Sunbeam.
Minneapolis was recently ranked the NUMBER ONE BIKE FRIENDLY CITY in the nation by Bicycle Magazine. Access to the system of local and regional bike trails is steps away with bike rental available locally during summer and bicycle rental kiosks available all over the city from April to November. Lake Calhoun features 3 miles of bike and walking trails with a great view of the Minneapolis skyline. It is part of the city’s Chain of Lakes trails and also intersects with regional/commuter biking/blading/walking trails like the Midtown Greenway Trail.
We like our big small town of Minneapolis!
