|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
Hotels are EXPENSIVE, impersonal, and cramped. Our guests pay a "hotel stay" price and receive 10x the space, 5 private rooms, a full kitchen, and fenced in yard to spread out and relax. We have hosted solo travelers, couples, families and 10+ person groups for everything from weddings, to holidays, to long term medical services. Incoming patients of the Mayo Clinic enjoy that we are 5 min. away from the heart of the Mayo Campus and easily within walking distance of downtown. The home is conveniently located on the bus line on 2nd Ave SE which runs directly to the Clinic campuses and between the downtown and St. Mary's districts.
Born and raised in MN we originally purchased this 2800 sq. ft. home in 2011. After many years of housing friends and family attending university we had been planning on selling and downsizing when a friend contacted us in need of help. A woman he knew needed a place to stay while her son received treatment and the Ronald McDonald house was full which is the only other option for struggling families with children. While staying with us she introduced us to the Vacation Rental idea knowing other travelers would love our home.
Brandon Andrews purchased this house in 2011
We jumped at the chance to purchase this based on many factors. It has an unusually large footprint compared to the rest of the homes in the neighborhood. We loved that is was directly across from St. Francis Catholic church, and close to the bike trails and public parks that make Rochester so beautiful.
We live nearby so If you need something just ask! If we CAN help you we WILL help you.
I was extremely pleased to stay at Brandon's house for a few days. It was a short walk to the downtown Rochester area, and had everything you would need. Very spacious, gym in the basement, and a quiet back patio. I would absolutely recommend staying here, and will look to stay here again in my future visits to Rochester.
Loved the house. Kitchen was well equipped, beds very comfortable, quiet neighborhood, close to downtown. Five bedrooms!! Lots of space. Brandon is great.
My husband and I come to Rochester yearly for him to visit the Mayo Clinic, this year I was recovering from a very recent abdominal surgery and we recently adopted a pup from the humane society. We wanted to stay away from the hustle and bustle of down town but still be close enough for appointments. Brandon's home was gorgeous. It's an older home that had so much character and charm. Brandon provided us with cable tv when the google tv was not available, he corrected a mishap at the very beginning for us and did all he could to make us comfortable. The neighborhood was quiet and our pup had a nice big yard to run about in. It was nice having the privacy to cook our own meals, although we couldn't find a dust mop to do the floors. The beds were comfy and there was plenty of space in the house for more guests if we had them. We will definitely be staying at this home in the future. Thank you Brandon.
The house is clean. Bedding and towels are clean. This is a great place to stay.
2 items to consider:
The smoke alarms don't have batteries in them 👎𣠼
The mattresses are stained beyond belief.
We had a very happy stay at Brandon's-8 adults and 4 pre-schoolers. (The Barbies in the closet were a god-send for our three little girls!) There was adequate space for everyone, the kitchen, which we kept busy!, had sufficient dishes, pots, pans, etc. The beds were comfortable and clean. The front and back doors were very hard to lock (impossible for me--my husband finally managed) and need to be realigned. Brandon and I already talked about this. I thought the master bedroom upstairs could use a more thorough cleaning, dusting. All in all, Brandon was very approachable and helpful. His house provided us with a comfortable, easily accessable place for us to stay while celebrating our daughter's wedding and our family reunion. We definitely would stay there again.
Thanks Brandon! Your house was the perfect place to stay when we were in Rochester for my sons wedding. We hosted the wedding party there for the rehearsal meal. Everyone commented on the warm inviting atmosphere your home provided for our party.
Brandon was a very pleasant person to deal with. We had a family member in Mayo Methodist Hospital and with very short notice, Brandon had his home available for the 3 nights that we needed to stay. There were 9 of us so the 5 bedrooms were a very welcome benefit. The 3 season porch was a blessing for the 4 young boys to play in as well as back yard. The neighbors were all so nice. Overall we really had a very pleasant, comfortable stay. It was so nice to be able to cook our own meals and do our laundry.
Thank you Brandon for the use of your home. We will stay here again if we need to spend more time in Rochester..really beats staying in a motel.
