Thank you so much for sharing your home with us to help celebrate our son's wedding. The last few days have been the best -- your home was a big part of that!
The Mansion on Irving Park was perfect for our family reunion. Easy access via MSP, loved the riverwalk, plenty of room to enjoy the house and garden for all. Thanks for the memories. The Smith Family
It was such a pleasure to stay in this amazing historic home in such a great neighborhood. Walking every day by the river, enjoying the screened porch and basement while also a short car ride to everything we needed to do. There were 7 of us and it was beyond spacious. Great main street with restaurants and coffee and Cossettas is a must do for food and atmosphere. Dirk was easy to work with and very accommodating. Highly recommend!
What a lovely property. We were in town for a short family getaway. Ages ranged from 18 months to 61 years. We took advantage of the great back yard for Frisbee and playing catch. Enjoyed the screened porch early morning and evening. Skeptical of the round dining table at first but found it worked wonderfully for our group of 9. Lower level game and theater rooms came in handy after the little ones went down for the night. Great amenities and location. We could walk for coffee and pastries early in the morning . Very close to museums. Awesome park across the street. Only things we could have used were crib/pack 'n play and a high chair. Very enjoyable!
Dirk and Ruth have a VERY special place that they graciously loan/rent to those who also appreciate a time honored historical home! 6 women enjoyed and basked in the warmth of this "mansion" on Irvine Park. We were comfortable, fine accomadations for us. The Kitchen was more than adequate, as we did blend eating in and dining out! The weather did not cooperate for us to utilize the great firepit, and outdoor/ screened porch social areas. Multiple sitting areas, enjoying conversaton and a glass of red, were available for our choosing. Our group is well traveled and accustomed to luxury accomodations. EVERYONE loved the venue for our every 5 year reunion! Thank you.
My husband and I were looking for a home for a weekend where we could catch up with out of town friends before we ourselves went back home overseas. The hosts were communicative and well-organized, down to providing fresh ground coffee from Dunn Brothers up on West 8th.
It was an exceptional weekend, we saw many wedding groups and families doing photo shoots across the street at Irvine Park itself. The house provided an elegant setting for catching up as well as a central base of operations to walk to the Farmer's Market, up to Cossetta's and other restaurants and watch the fall colors.
Thank you for the memories!
Eight of us usually go to a lake cabin for a long weekend of walking, talking, cooking and eating. This time it was great to stay in town, as three couples needed to be in town for brief times during the weekend. We walked Summit Ave and the river, took the bus to a Saints game and ate at a couple of restaurants nearby. The kitchen was totally updated and stocked (the stove lighting was a very minor challenge identifying which knob controlled which burner). The house is beautifully maintained and decorated, combining Downton Abbey elegance with modern art and technology and fully updated HVAC. We had some slowness in Wi-Fi (We really shouldn't all be on our phones and laptops during a "getaway!") The yard was large and we were able to eat outside and play games around the large round table. It was too hot for the fire pit, but a great place to sit and enjoy appetizers. We didn't have time to do all there was to do (croquet, bocce ball, etc.), but we made good use of the pool table, pinball machine and large TV in the media lounge. Dirk was accessible and provided instructions for whatever we needed. The historic Irvine Park and houses are magnificent. It was truly a wonderful place to stay.
