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 Rochester

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!

  • 5 of 5

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".

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

The house worked fantastic for all our needs. Very comfortable it was just like being at home. We will definitely stay again when in Rochester. The house is centrally located to the clinic and hospital and grocery store.

So Appreciative!

  • 5 of 5

After ending up in Rochester for Mayo, we were so fortunate to have found this gem of a home and owner (thank you, Wayne!). The location could not have been any better as we were able to easily and quickly walk to the Mayo buildings. The home is in a great neighborhood--it is also extremely comfortable. Although the house is undoubtedly large it also felt cozy. The furniture and beds were great, and there was a PERFECT RECLINER in the living room in front of the television. There is a nice sitting area in the front of the yard, and a beautiful, fenced-in patio on the side of the home. The host was amazing--he was kind, accommodating, quick to respond to questions, and went out of his way on more than one occasion to help us.

Very enjoyable stay!

  • 5 of 5

After living in a one level house, we found this wonderful house full of nooks and living spaces.

Wayne was a wonderful host and the house was very charming. Everything you could want was provided and Wayne even came over to clear the sidewalks and driveway when we had a unexpected snowstorm. The bed was very comfortable and the leather loungers made for a quick recovery at the Mayo clinic.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about this property and Wayne the owner. We ended up being at Mayo Clinic at the last minute and rented the property. It suited our needs perfectly. We also extended our check out date which Wayne was beyond accommodating about. The two bedrooms were great and my son loved the upstairs loft with his own bathroom. The loft stairs are steep and the ceiling is low. It is within walking distance to the Clinic and downtown Rochester. Very pleasant and relaxing. The piano was a bonus. A great choice in Rochester.
