About Craig and Sarah
Living in Illinois, but having so many family members in Minnesota, we were visiting Minneapolis at least once per month and spending several weeks up there in the summer. In 2013, we finally decided to buy a place to be our "Home Away from Home." We started with a small condo, but quickly outgrew it and bought this house, THE ARMATAGE. In 2015 we decided that it might be fun to share our home and our love of Minneapolis with other travelers. We love the lakes and all of the amazing recreational opportunities in the summer; and we love the shopping and indoor play areas in the winter.
Craig and Sarah purchased this House in 2015
Why Craig and Sarah chose Southwest Minneapolis
The location is perfect for everything you might want to do or see in the Twin Cities. Incredibly easy access to the Minneapolis freeways, biking distance to beautiful lakes and parks, short drive (or Uber ride) to wonderful shopping, restaurants, The VA and Fairview Southdale hospitals and downtown museums.
What makes this House unique
We love the unique neighborhood feel of this home. It is seated in the quaint Armatage neighborhood of Minneapolis--home to big backyards and friendly people. We are close to everything, but can also get away from the chaos of the city when we want to. At the end of a fun and eventful day, we can sit on the patio in the backyard with a glass of wine, watch the kids play in the yard and enjoy the solitude of our "Home Away from Home."

Great place to stay
My family and I recently stayed at the Armatage. We were visiting family for a wedding. This was the first time I had ever used VRBO. The house was clean and very well organized. There was plenty of room for a family of six. Before booking the Armatage, the owners quickly responded to any questions I had along with any further questions during our stay. The kitchen is stocked with anything you may need in order to cook meals. I enjoyed the Keurig machine and coffee which was provided. I further liked the ability to do laundry when needed and detergent/fabric sheets are provided. All the beds are nice and soft and I was actually thrilled that the owners provided a “white noise sound machine” in the master bedroom. The finished basement is nice and cozy. And everything is labeled clearly.
I have a 12 passenger van and parked my van on the street. Plenty of parking since you can park on either side of the street.
The location is very convenient to many destinations such as MOA, Valleyfair and the Minnesota Zoo which we visited. And there is an ALDI grocery store close by.
In the future when/if we travel back to Minnesota, we would stay at this location again.
Thank you for sharing your home with us!
The house was perfect in every way. There were 5 adults in our party: plenty of room, very comfortable beds and spotlessly clean. Thank you!!
Great space for a girl's weekend. Everything was very clean, beds were comfortable and we enjoyed the nice touches throughout the space. We arrived a little early and they were able to accommodate us right away. It is located on a quiet residential street, but easy to access the highway or just be close to the great little neighborhoods in the area as well. I would definitely recommend this wonderful home!
This was a great house in nice neighborhood. It was very clean and well stocked. The first night we walked to Pizzeria Lola and it was delicious plus the walk was enjoyable on a nice evening. The Sleep Number bed in the master was super comfortable. We will definitely rent this again when we’re back in town.
Our stay at Armatage was so enjoyable! The house had everything we needed and the beds were all so comfortable! There were labels on cupboards, closets and shelves to keep us organized...and made our time there so easy and smooth running. Thanks for your attention to details, Craig and Sarah!

We rented this charming house for the NCAA Championship weekend and it was perfect! The home is immaculate, well-decorated and all stocked up with everything you would need for a home away from home. The thoughtful hosts even provided personalized water bottles and baskets of coffee/snacks for our enjoyment.
We arrived a bit earlier than expected and they promptly gave us access to the home and followed up to make sure that everything was going well.
The neighborhood was beautiful and provided a great access to all things Minneapolis.
Do not hesitate to rent this property - you will be glad that you did!
We love the location of our rental because it offers something for absolutely everyone! In approx 10 minutes you can be at the most popular Minneapolis lakes, amazing shopping centers, the University of Minnesota, The VA Hospital or the Minneapolis/St. Paul airport. We are also just 5 minutes away from Fairview Southdale Hospital, and offer a home away from home for those traveling to the Twin Cities for medical care. Located in the desirable Armatage neighborhood, we are within biking distance to our favorite restaurant Pizzeria Lola, and walking distance to Armatage Park. Our location is unbeatable for proximity to so many activities!
