About borgen.wayne@gmail.com

We love the Kutzke Neighborhood and older homes - this is our second home here. My wife worked at Mayo Clinic for 38 years and living this close eliminated the need to contend with parking as she could easily walk to work. I worked for Augsburg College in Rochester and could bike to work which I much enjoyed after years of commuting.

borgen.wayne@gmail.com purchased this House in 2005

Why borgen.wayne@gmail.com chose Kutzky Park

We lived in various outlying neighborhoods in Rochester for many years - neighborhood home, acreage and a townhome. We always enjoyed Rochester but we always drove to get downtown and to work. In 2002 we moved to a house in Kutzke and enjoyed the people we met and the older homes. In 2005 we purchased our second home in Kutzke and still enjoy our time here.

What makes this House unique

The woodwork, floors, layout and vintage windows first drew us in. We loved having the master bedroom on the main floor, which is uncommon for 1920's homes. The proximity to bike trails, Mayo facilities and downtown sealed the deal.

                                                      A Perfect retreat to recover in from surgery!

                                                      Barb & George R.

                                                      We've been to Rochester several times before for health needs and always stayed in motels. This time we knew it would be a 6 week recovery time and decided to rent a home for that period. We could not have picked a better home, area, or owner to help us through every need we ran into during this time. Wayne, our owner was "like family"; very sensitive to our needs from the normal ups & downs of surgical recovery. He walked us through the home as we arrived and gave us the freedom to treat it as our home. The comfort of that freedom allowed for a lo-stress recovery and healing for my husband. His home is spacious and has many similar items that I have in my home, so I really felt I was at home, not out of town as we faced each day after surgery. Even though you don't see the piano in any of his pictures, it became a soothing therapy for rest as I played tunes from long ago. Since husband slept, I would say that was a positive.The private patio off the 2nd bedroom on ground level gave us restful periods on beautiful spring days that also helped in his recovery. Access to Kutzky Park was an exceptional bonus for healing from major surgery and we were able to walk it daily as well as walk to the clinic for appointments or just plain walking activity.

                                                      The neighbors also embrace you as "one of them" and open their arms, but carefully respect your need to heal.

                                                      Wayne's home is completely supplied with most everything you might need (save some perishable foods!) for a long stay. It's clean and well furnished as well as artfully decorated so if you are looking for a "home away from home" and have to stay a while, I would encourage you to look this lovely home up. That 1st question you asked didn't really give me much choice in my answer, but indeed we both grew to "love" staying here in spite of not necessarily "wanting to come here".

                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                      One of the benefits of opening our home for rentals has been the remarkable people we meet along the way who handle their journeys with such grace.

                                                      Great home away from home.

                                                      Mark W.

                                                      A peaceful sanctuary to come back to after meeting with the great physicians at the clinic. Spent a week here after our daughters surgery and it was just what we needed. Thank you Wayne for helping out with every detail of our stay!!

                                                      I can't imagine a better place to stay in Rochester!

                                                      Chris C.Keller

                                                      This home is well maintain with all amentites. Very close to Mayo Clinic and easy walking distance to downtown. I stayed for two weeks while my wife had surgery in February and simply walked to the hostpital while she was there. Afterwards it was perfect for a restful recovery before returning back to Dallas. Wayne was great to work with and very accomodting. I would highly recommed staying and will return!

                                                      Great house!

                                                      Jim S.Tempe, AZ

                                                      Absolutely perfect in every regard: cleanliness, location, owner, etc. Thanks!

                                                      Nice older home

                                                      tom w.

                                                      This was a very nice home and perfect for what we needed. Wayne (owner) was great to work with and dealt with any problem immediately. We would stay here again if in the future we need to spend time in Rochester.

                                                      Very comfortable and terrific owner!

                                                      Benjamin W.Mankato

                                                      Needed this house for an unexpected Christmas in Rochester, and it was perfect! Nice fireplace and too many good features to list... The owner is top notch, communication is unbeatable. Strongly recommend this place.
