About Alison McGhee
I am a writer who thrives on the freedom to work wherever I am. What do I love? Travel. Reading. Family and friends. Lively conversation. The great outdoors. Movies, both indie and b-grade blockbusters. Food, lots of it and well-made. Music, music, music and books, books, books. As your host, I will be completely unobtrusive (I myself dislike the hovering host syndrome) but happily available should you need directions, restaurant/shopping recommendations, or walking and biking and running and gym tips. If I'm in a baking mood you might find a basket of cookies hanging from your door.
Alison McGhee purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Alison McGhee chose Carag
I've lived in the Uptown neighborhood ever since I moved to Minneapolis (from New England) many years ago, and I couldn't imagine living anywhere else in the city. It's a charming, quirky, unique area in which you can walk and bike or bus anywhere you need to go. I love living in a quiet residential neighborhood three blocks from all the hustle and bustle of Uptown's commercial district.
What makes this Apartment unique
I fell in love with our duplex the first moment I looked at it. It's a vintage home with beautiful woodwork everywhere, from gleaming hardwood floors to intricately carved moldings. The gas fireplace, the sunny kitchen and dining room, and the charming front porch (complete with swing) make it a wonderful place year-round.

cute quiet place
Quiet neighborhood, easy to walk to eats, shopping. owner was responsive to questions is txt-VRBO was more of a problem since they didn't recognize my acct.. This is an older home but still exudes warmth. Did not miss the TV,used the fast WiFi instead. I liked that different loose-leaf teas were provided. Liked the cheat sheets that were provided-clear & succinct and good starting point for explorations.
Sweet little get away
This property is such a sweet little place! Walkable to restaurants, yoga, massage and the lakes. I loved Alisons books all around and the sweet poems and sayings on the walls. Quiet and quaint I highly recommend staying here!
So glad you loved the apartment, Randi. The walkability is one of the reasons we are so grateful to live in this neighborhood. We loved hosting you - thanks for leaving the place in such great shape. Come back anytime!
Cozy and quiet while still close to town
Getting into the apartment the first time was a little confusing but Alison's great instructions were incredibly valuable. Watch out for ice at the entry door in winter! Overall, strongly recommend staying in this charming apartment if you're coming to Minneapolis.
Came for a yoga training at Devanadi and this was perfect! A warm, homey, beautiful place to absorb it all. A walk to the lake for sunset and then into town for dinner - a great way to end the day! Alison had great recommendations- I tried as many as I could “)
A warm welcome - everything I could need and amazing places to visit - I loved it all!
We are so glad you loved your stay in the apartment and that the location and recommendations worked out so well. We loved hosting you - come back anytime!
Great place to stay
this is nicely located and a wonderful place, my wife, a gardner, enjoyed the garden here. highly reccomended
Great location for us to visit friends and family. Originally from the twin cities so we were familiar with the area. Nice comfortable older home just 5 blocks from an apartment we rented in the 80's. Very good information package and appreciated the welcome wine and crackers. We will rent here again next time we need a place to stay in Minneapolis while visiting from North Carolina.
