Perfect for a Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We chose to stay in Lois's charming Cathedral Hill condo due to it's proximity to a wedding we would be attending at Summit Manor Reception House, which is within walking distance. The condo was was not only as pictured and described...it was better! Yes, the kitchen is small and the parking spot is tiny, but we only prepared one meal in the kitchen and never had a problem finding street parking within half a block. The beds were comfortable, there is ample seating, the kitchen is the best stocked rental I've been to, and the DirectTV and free wireless Internet make up for the lack of square footage in the kitchen and driveway.

The porch in the back of the house is so relaxing and the yard was an extra touch considering we had a rambunctious four-year-old with us. The various vines growing around the porch added nice shade over the 90+ degree weekend we had. Another nice thing for families is that the condo is two blocks from a park that has nice playground equipment. It's also within walking distance to a number of restaurants, bars, and shops. It was easy for us to get to various events surrounding the wedding without having to jump on the interstate, which we very much appreciated!

One thing I want to point out about our stay is that we happened to leave a somewhat pricey piece of electronic equipment on the kitchen counter accidentally as we were leaving. By the time we realized, which was about two hours later, and called Lois, she had been to the condo and found the item. She was very kind in going out of her way to send the item back to us, which is something I've never been able to successfully have a hotel do for me. I think this reason alone is why you should consider staying in one of Lois's rentals instead of a hotel next time you are in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.

Loved our little home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled to find this sweet home in such a beautiful St. Paul neighborhood. We appreciated being around the corner from downtown businesses and restaurants, but the immediate neighborhood was quiet and relaxed. Since we didn't have a car, we took advantage of the Nice Ride Bike system which was also just a couple blocks away. The very best part was the incredible backyard garden and deck. We enjoyed several summer meals on the quaintly lit deck. I'd definitely come back to this home away from home!

Beautiful and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We rented Lois' property for 3 nights in May. The property was spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated, and very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed the outside deck, and ate several meals there. The kitchen was fully functional, and it was nice to have a washer and dryer. Great location, and Lois was a pleasure to deal with. If you choose to rent this property, you will not be disappointed.

Gorgeous Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family would highly recommend this home to others. Absolutely beautifully decorated home with much attention to detail. Plenty of linens and towels, kitchen well stocked, laundry room convenient. Loved the back porch and spent many hours at the outside table and chairs enjoying the weather. Used the electric bbq for steaks and hot dogs. Very comfortable and close to grocery and we would recommend the red cow restaurant (literally behind alley of house) for fine dining and drinks. Great parking space, narrow but we fit two cars. Family reunion for a Bethel U graduation, family of five adults. This is the place to book!
