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 guests and introducing visitors to our wonderful city of Minneapolis.

Tim or Lara purchased this apartment in 1995

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. Almost like Summer Resort Living!

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!

- Beautiful View of Lake Calhoun. - Steps to the Beach. - Spacious, Comfortable, and Fully Equipped Accommodations. - Centrally Located! - Bikes for Rent at local kiosks - Steps away from an extensive network of skiing/biking/blading and walking trails. - Live Music at local restaurants/venues. - Art and Music Festivals, theaters, performance venues and world class museums. - Easy access to all Winter Loppet Events! -- Enjoy your stay in a real home with all the benefits of a wonderful neighborhood!

Besides everything offered right outside of your door in Uptown, Minneapolis features new or renovated facilities for the Guthrie Theatre, Orchestra Hall, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Walker Art Museum, Children’s Theatre and the Weisman Art Museum.

The Hennepin Avenue Theater District now has four restored theaters which serve as venues for touring Broadway plays and concerts. Minneapolis is also the home of three of the state’s professional sports teams, the Minnesota Vikings, Minnesota Timberwolves and the Minnesota Twins, who play in their new outdoor stadium in downtown Minneapolis. Excellent transit service or a short taxi ride from Uptown will conveniently take you there!

Beyond expectations!

We have stayed in many VRBO's, and this was one of the best: Clean, well equipped, perfect location to shops, restaurants, and Lake Calhoun. Tim and Lara had decorated the apartment for Christmas, and it felt like home. Tim was instantly on any questions/requests we had regarding the apartment. When it snowed, Tim shoveled the driveway and steps so quickly we hardly realized it had snowed. It is larger than the pictures make it seem. Also, a major thing for non-techies: the wi-fi was the easiest and most reliable of any VRBO's we have rented. Thank you for making our family Christmas even better.

Owner's Response: Thanks Sarah! We really enjoyed hosting you and your family over the holidays. Please think of us again when you are in Minneapolis!

For those of you who don't know Minneapolis, it has one of the most beautiful park systems in the country, and Lake Calhoun is one of its jewels. The property is one short block off the lake (which you can make out from the living room window). It is a great location. Easy hop to downtown, too. The owners, Lara and Tim, could not have been nicer. The apartment was clean, and fit our family of 4 (which includes a 9 and an 11 year old) quite well.

I stayed here for two months last summer with my 6-year old daughter while awaiting the arrival of my second child. I'm from Minneapolis but now live in Tanzania, so I knew this was a great location and was not disappointed. My daughter and I were able to walk to the beach and park at Lake Calhoun in the evenings after work, bike around on the weekends, and comfortably walk to great restaurants and fun shopping. Tim and Lara were very accommodating to our needs - which were many! - and it was a welcoming and comfortable home for us during our two-month stay. I'd recommend it to anyone but it's especially great for families with kids.

James Street House

This little home is a gem. It was peaceful, very clean and was painted in beachy colors. It reminded me of the magazine REAL SIMPLE. There was plenty of room--bigger than I expected from the pictures online. Tim was a very nice host--helpful. They left us with freshly ground coffee from a local coffee shop and a loaf of french bread...classy touches. We enjoyed Lake Calhoun and walking around Uptown. My only critique would be I wish there was a nice outdoor area to sit and have coffee and look out at the lake....maybe a little patio in the corner of the yard. The yard was overgrown and needed some attention. We come to Minneapolis a couple times of year and I have many friends who travel to the Twin Cities. I will definately share this property info with my friends.

When we arrived with our two toddlers, we were greeted warmly by Tim. He and Lara were very friendly and easygoing. The kitchen was fully stocked with necessary household items. The home was very clean. It is extremely easy to walk into Uptown. We highly recommend James Lakeview House and would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Glad you and your family enjoyed your stay! We try to be very family friendly. Plenty of room for families to spread out and parks and the beach only steps away. Thanks and come again!
