Why Melissa Hansen chose Chaska
I purchased this property because of its fantastic location and close proximity to the Minneapolis metro area and because of its unique topography. It offers the tranquility and peacefulness of a beautiful country setting with the short commute to the dynamic arts and theatre district of the Twin Cities.
What makes this House unique
Travelers will enjoy the unique equestrian atmosphere and the beautiful country setting. The views from the home are spectacular, whether you're sitting in the beautiful four season porch or taking a walk on one of the groomed walking trails. You can sip your coffee and watch the horses grazing or you can take a sunset walk and catch a glimpse of a doe and fawn. Wildlife is abundant here in this peaceful quintana!

Relaxing in Minnesota
The home was nice and the setting was very nice and relaxing. My family had a wonderful time.
Gorgeous views, great getaway
The landscape was great for my friends and me to get away. Thanks
We booked this VRBO at the last minute and it was such a blessing. Beautifully situated amongst the rolling cornfields of the Minnesota country, it gave us a quiet and spacious place to land. It accommodated all nine of us well. We loved visiting the horses, especially our two-year-old son. The sun room was a common place everybody hung out too. Only minor inconvenience was we ran out of toilet paper, but we were replenished that day.
Highly recommend booking this place.
Beautiful and relaxing setting in quintessential MN farm country. We really enjoyed going down to pet the horses. Spacious and comfortable house. A little musty smelling at first, but that aired out. Good supply of dishes, silverware, and nice knives. Could have used more cookware and bakeware. There was an existing problem with the downstairs plumbing, and some minor cleanliness issues, but Dave addressed them immediately and they were corrected. Otherwise the house was clean. It took a couple of days to resolve a problem with the WiFi, but Dave worked diligently on it. Dave and Melissa offered a generous refund to compensate for the issues. There was no hair dryer, iron, or ironing board as listed on the amenities, and the airport is closer to 30 min away when the traffic is minimal to moderate. VRBO was supposed to provide check-in instructions, but we ended up contacting Melissa, and she apologized for that and responded promptly. Dave and Melissa were both very friendly and easy to work with. Overall we had a good experience and would definitely rent the property again.
This was my first time using VRBO and the experience has been interesting... We were looking for somewhere to stay for the weekend that was close to my nephews wedding site and this property was in a good location. Upon booking and messaging Melissa, we didn't hear from her until the night before we were to arrive at the property even though we tried contacting her several times. She finally messaged me with an apology and the information we needed to get into the house.
The property itself was nice enough and the home was clean and we were comfortable with the exception of a few things. We could not watch the television due to problems with Dish Network. I messaged Melissa who had no idea what the problem was and asked us to call Dave the owner. My brother (who used to install Dish years ago) talked to Dave and told him he needs to call and have Dish come and repair the satellite. Dave asked my brother if he could do it since he didn't understand/know how to fix Dish. My brother basically spent almost two hours checking to make sure none of the cables were cut, nothing was blocking the satellite, and talking to/convincing Dish that 1) he was calling with the owners permission and 2) the problem was not in the cable/internet/wifi - the satellite needed to be replaced. Dish finally agreed to send out a repairman on the day we were scheduled to leave. Dave thanked my brother and promised us a partial refund for all the trouble (as of date we have not received it but no worries!)
We were going to buy some DVD's but we never found the DVD player... There were a few of us that needed to iron our wedding outfits but we never found the iron... Dish showed up and replaced the satellite a few minutes before we left for home...
Like I stated earlier we were just staying there as we celebrated my nephews wedding and we really didn't sweat the small stuff. Everyone had fun and enjoyed themselves and the lack of a timely response, a refund, a t.v, a iron, and a DVD player did not impede our joy, it just made for an interesting time...
Perfect for family gathering. Clean and charming.
Would rent again
