2 Bedroom, 2nd Floor Apartment
We came to MInnesota for a long wedding weekend at the Edgehill Farm in Henderson MN, which was fantastic! After the wedding festivities wrapped, we came up to Minneapolis and stayed at this apartment for 2 nights. We didn't have too much time to explore the neighborhood which looked safe and pleasant. My friends and I enjoyed our stay, and think the apartment itself was pretty nice. I would have liked to have found an extra set of sheets because one of us wanted to sleep on the futon the first night (we used the cotton blankets we found in the linen cupboard). If I were going to stay longer I would want to take along odds and ends of useful things like: scissors, scotch tape, pens, pencils, books, playing cards, etc.. A larger capacity coffee maker would have been useful to us (all 4 of us are big coffee drinkers), and more than 1 ice cube tray could be handy. 2 more (than the 4 we found) dining chairs would be nice too. I had the darndest time opening the front door, but I think it was my failure to operate the key and keypad correctly. I probably shouldn't have rented this particular apartment simply because one of us is somewhat disabled, and she would have benefited by being on a 1st floor, but she did make it up and down okay. If navigating stairs is a problem, this might not be the apartment for you. The apartment was clean. The parking area behind the building was convenient. I'm glad to see that recycling is encouraged. Enjoyed great food at Marla's Caribbean Cuisine (medium-hot curried goat...yum), the Northbound Smokehouse & Brewpub, Colossal Cafe, and Longfellow Grill. We visited Lock and Dam #1, and got to see the lock in action. We saw a flock of wild turkeys foraging near the Lock & Dam #1. We visited the Midtown Global Market, a unique gift shop, CorAzoN, and the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden. All in all a great but too brief couple of days in Minneapolis.This apartment was a comfortable place to rest our heads.
